Battlefield 2042's weather systems seem to be a lot more than your typical rain or snow maps. Dice wants to take the next installment of Battlefield to the next level. Toward the end of the trailer, players suddenly stop to the sound of thunder and the flash of lightning in the background. In the midst of a metropolis, soldiers start panicking and running, and for good reason. Out of the dark clouds, a massive tornado appears.
It starts destroying everything in its wake, though one soldier shows off his flying suit, and makes it out alive.
Battlefield 2042 Weather Systems Teased in Reveal Trailer
It's hard to tell from the reveal trailer whether the tornado randomly appears or maybe can be called in by enemy players. It is the future and humans have been fascinated with the prospect of using mother nature as a weapon. Maybe in 2042, governments have learned how to harness the power of weather and players will be able to call in a tornado.
Not much else was revealed about the weird system and Dice described the game in the YouTube description, "Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter that marks the return to the iconic all-out warfare of the franchise. Adapt and overcome in a near-future world transformed by disorder. Squad up and bring a cutting-edge arsenal into dynamically-changing battlegrounds supporting 128 players*, unprecedented scale, and epic destruction."
Battlefield 2042 releases on Oct. 22, 2021.
