Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone detailed
A new extraction mode will be included in upcoming shooter
EA and DICE have announced new details about the Hazard Zone mode in Battlefield 2042
Hazard Zone sets up a world where International distrust inspired both the US and Russia to engineer a surveillance solution: the use of satellites equipped with capsules containing radiation-hardened data drives. These capsules (and the precious intelligence they contain) are dropped into their respectively controlled territories for the Occupying Forces to secure.
Players will assume the role of a task force trying to locate, gather, and extract data drives before a storm overtakes the area. You’ll start with a Mission Area Briefing where you’ll get the info you need to succeed, from regions of the map with a high probability of enemy combatants, data drives, and Uplinks. You’ll then select the Specialists and loadouts you and your squad will join the fight with. From this point on you’ve got just one mission – securing those capsules and data drives. Rival squads will have the same objective and then there are Occupying Forces who will guard the contents of those capsules.
With drives captures, two extraction windows are available per match at randomized locations, but only for a short period of time. If any of your squad don’t make it they’ll get one more shot during final extraction.
Battlefield 2042 will launch worldwide on November 19 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation4, PlayStation5, and PC via Origin, Steam and the Epic Games Store.
