Screenshots from DICE’s new Battlefield game, rumored to be called Battlefield 2042, have leaked on EA’s own Origin store ahead of the game’s official announcement later today. Not only have new images been revealed, but further details around the game–including its beta and release date–have also emerged from the Origin leak. [Update: EA has released Battlefield 2042’s trailer, revealing a name and release date. We also have a Battlefield 2042 preview with more details. Additionally, EA shared some information about the Battlefield 2042 open beta mentioned in the leak below.]
The images show a soldier in a wingsuit flying away from a tornado, a helicopter advancing onto a building with explosions in the foreground, and more soldiers jumping off a building and floating to the ground with a wingsuit. Another image shows a tank leading the charge.
In addition to the screenshots, someone on Reddit has discovered more unannounced details about Battlefield 2042 from the Origin leak, including how its setting takes place when the USA and Russia are on the brink of war.
The leaked information also mentioned that Battlefield 2042 will have seven maps that support up to 128 players, in places like Seoul and Egypt. The previous player cap was 64 players, so Battlefield 2042 could be doubling the player limit.
The EA Origin Store feed has updated early and confirmed the game is called Battlefield 2042.
