Battlefield 2042: what Exodus offers

The short film begins with the world torn apart by two superpowers: the United States and Russia, who blame each other for the blackout. Between these two countries, who continue to be at war at all times, are the No-Pats or Non-Patriated, who fight for no one but their own survival.

Kimble Graves, a.k.a. Irish, an ex-marine who does what he has to for money, leads the No-Pats. The trailer introduces another character, “Oz”, who looks to settle his own scores. The two, because of their difference of opinion, end up clashing together.
