Battlefield 2042 shows off three of its seven maps arriving at launch

Battlefield 2042 recently revealed some gameplay action on three of its maps, which players can experience from November 19. This includes Renewal, Discarded and Breakaway. All the maps are quite different geographically, and the clips showcase the variety of regions players will have access to. While Call of Duty only has a couple of large maps for Battle Royale and Zombies, Battlefield 2042 will have seven humongous maps which can house 128 players in the same lobby.

In Renewal, players will be thrown into the Eastern Deserts of Egypt. Rather than the barren land most fans would have expected, Renewal will have a section with futuristic irrigation, which has brought out a ton of greenery. Along with that, there will be a lot of office spaces, which will have a ton of warfare.

Discarded and Breakaway shine as well

Breakaway will introduce players to the cold ice laden continent of Antartica. In Queen Maud Land, players will be fighting on many glaciers and high icebergs, which will provide a lot of interesting wingsuit experiences. At the center of the action is a massive Oil Rig, and it is probably the only major building that players can battle it out in this map.

Discarded will bring the action to the Indian subcontinent in the fictitious ship breaking yard of Alang. Fans will take part in all out warfare on a location which consists of containers, cranes and other port equipment. With strong winds blowing by, this is a location that should excite players on the upcoming DICE title.

In the end, it seems like DICE are about to release something truly iconic and players can’t wait to try it out.
