Battlefield 2042 – First Impressions

I’m a huge fan of modern Battlefield; I’ve sunk hundreds of hours between Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4. Battlefield 1 was okay for the most part and I skipped Battlefield 5 as I was kind of burnt out on warfare of the past.

Battlefield 2042 looks to be a slightly futuristic yet still modern Battlefield that I think will give Call of Duty a run for it’s money this year. From the cinematic trailer, it looks visually impressive and I think there’s alot to be excited for.

First things first, the destruction. Battlefield is known for vehicular combat and blowing buildings to smithereens in glorious fashion. Battlefield 2042 looks to amp things up by adding a dynamic weather mechanic that changes the way the game is played as well as changing the entire map. Things like hurricanes and tornados will change the landscape as they leave buildings destroyed and rubble to traverse around.

As far as the gameplay goes, I love the way it’s looking. It looks tense and engaging and I think it’ll be a real contender for game of the year for me. I love me some all-out war. Being able to change attachments on the fly while in the middle of a war zone is also a big step up from previous games where changing attachments required you to go back to the in-game menu to change them.

My only concern is that the game will not feature a single player campaign. While the past few campaigns haven’t been as great as Bad Company 2, I can’t imagine a Battlefield game without some sort of narrative structure. Especially since this is a modern Battlefield, this seems like a missed opportunity to show the horrors of modern-day war and it’s effect on the military.

Let’s not forget to mention that the game will still be a whopping $70 at release. To charge full price for a fraction of the content compared to previous titles, the multiplayer better be 10/10 quality. Since the primary focus is multiplayer, I expect little to no bugs, balanced gameplay, improved squad-based mechanics, and picture perfect gun and kill animations.

Despite my concerns, I’m still looking forward to the game. Battlefield 2042 drops October 22, 2021 and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
