Battlefield 2042 gets first DLC this week
Season 1: Zero Hour brings new content to the shooter
Electronic Arts has announced Battlefield 2042 – Season 1: Zero Hour, the game’s first season of post-launch content, begins June 9.
In Zero Hour, players can head to the new Exposure map. Ground-to-air combat, as well as tight infantry fights, await within caves and among mountain ridges. Exposure will be available in All-Out Warfare and Portal when Season 1 launches.
The DLC also introduces Specialist Ewelina Lis, a renowned vehicle-killer thanks to her rocket launcher, which fires remote-controlled missiles for pinpoint accuracy, and the intel providing Armor Hunter trait.
Zero Hour also adds new vehicles and items to collect. Pilot the new RAH-68 Huron and YG-99 Hannibal Gunships, equipped with radar deflection and advanced defensive capabilities. Choose from regular, light, heavy, and explosive ammo with the Ghostmaker R10 Crossbow and adapt to different combat situations. Take out enemies from afar with the BSV-M Marksman Rifle, ideal for mid-range combat. Lastly, use the new Smoke Grenade Launcher in both offensive and defensive situations.
These core content additions are freely available to all players as part of Battlefield 2042’s new Battle Pass. Additional cosmetic items – including legendary skins and melee takedowns – are earnable through a Premium version of the Battle Pass.
Battlefield 2042 is available now on PC, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS4, and PS5.
