The most exciting thing that the reveal trailer displayed was the variety of maps available to the players. Battlefield 2042 is going to have maps across terrains from the tundra to deserts or cities with skyscrapers to cargo ports. This isn’t all that makes the Battlefield experience.

DICE has also added dynamic weather conditions where the map can go from bright and sunny to stormy in a matter of seconds. This makes the warfare much more engaging and immersive as players not only have to face the wrath of their enemies but also the harsh weather.

Another exciting thing that DICE revealed through the new trailer is the range of combat Battlefield 2042 has to offer. The game will not be limited to gunfights. Instead, players have at their disposal a ton of armored vehicles, choppers, fighter jets, and even hovercrafts. In fact, players also have robotic turret dogs that they can set loose to hunt down enemies.

The last sequence of the reveal trailer displayed a cyclone engulfing all the players, no matter how hard they tried to escape. Previous leaks had already rumored that Battlefield 2042 is going to have a Battle Royale mode. With the storm in Fortnite and the gas in Call of Duty: Warzone, it looks like players will have to survive the cyclone in Battlefield BR.

Finally, the most important detail that DICE revealed through the trailer was the date for the upcoming gameplay trailer for Battlefield 2042. The developers will release the next trailer on June 13, 2021, which perfectly coincides with E3 2021. After all, it seems like fans will indeed be getting a piece of Battlefield at the virtual event.
