Electronic Arts and the Battlefield team today unveiled Battlefield 2042 Season 3: Escalation. Beginning November 22nd, the season will add new content to the game, including high firepower options for players’ arsenal to further up the ante of ground warfare. Season 3 brings a new map, a new specialist, more weapons, a new vehicle, and 100 more Battle Pass tiers. All core gameplay-affecting content is available to all players as part of the free Battlefield 2042 Battle Pass tiers. Additional cosmetic items are available through the premium version of the Battle Pass.
In Season 3, the battle shifts to the untamed Swedish wilderness on the new Spearhead map, which features semi-automated factories for the manufacture of high-tech weaponry.
Egyptian-born specialist and security expert, Zain drives enemies out of cover with his XM370A airburst rifle. Since he’s resilient under pressure – making him a real leader on the front line – he’s able to instantly regenerate health after neutralizing a target.
Multiple weapons and a classic throwable are also included in Season 3. These innovations stand for higher damage and higher tactical deployments. The Rorsch Mk-4 Railgun fires incredibly fast projectiles in different modes. Players who can manage their reload times can use the versatility and power of this modern weapon to their advantage. The NVK-S22 double-barreled semi-automatic smart shotgun is compact and small enough to be used for close-quarters ambushes. The NVK-P125 long-barreled bullpup pistol is an ideal long-range sidearm. In addition to firearms, throwing knives have also made their way into the Battlefield 2042 arsenal this season.
The new EMKV90-TOR tank allows you to quickly cross the battlefield and deal massive damage. The EMKV90-TOR has two modes: Mobility mode for fast movement and Siege mode, which drastically slows down the tank but deals immense damage. He also has a special system that locates the starting point of attacks and displays them on the HUD.
