The company did that in a article on the EA website. As announced earlier, the first season will only start in 2022 and a ‘pre-season’ is due to run at the end of this year. In it, players can expect weekly missions and rewards, limited play modes, Creator Spotlights and new experiences in Battlefield Portal.
Four seasons should be available in Battlefield 2042 next year, as well as four Battle Passes. There are also four new Specialists coming to the game, new locations and other new content. It is also planned to release several updates to Battlefield Portal that will give players more options to create their own unique experiences.
The first season, which kicks off sometime in early 2022, should at least include a Battle Pass, as well as new Specialist, Portal content, and “maybe even new landmarks as the Battlefield 2042 story unfolds.” More details about the content of the seasons should be revealed early next year.
Battlefield 2042 is out November 19 on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, and Xbox One. People who pre-ordered the Gold and Ultimate editions of the game will receive the full game starting tomorrow. A 10-hour trial will also be available to EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members from then on.
