In Battlefield 2042, the world is on the brink. Shortages of food, energy and clean water have led to dozens of failed nations, creating the greatest refugee crisis in human history. Among these Non-Patriated, or No-Pats, are families, farmers, engineers – and even soldiers. Amidst this crisis, the United States and Russia draw the world into an all-out war. No-Pat Specialists join both sides, not fighting for a flag, but for the future of the Non-Patriated in this new world.
In addition to that, EA and DICE also shared a trailer with us that shows the game. Honestly, from the looks of it, the game looks like it is going to have a massive, massive scale, and at this point, I cannot wait for the game to go official because this might bring back my interest in the FPS multiplayer.
