[Update #2]: Battlefield 2042 devs have detailed their many plans to improve the often-criticized map design.

[Update]: Battlefield 2042 has now been unleashed, though sadly not without plenty of problems.

If you're itching for some ridiculously over-the-top shooty action, you'll be happy to hear that Battlefield 2042 is nearly upon us. The full game will launch on November 19th for PC, PlayStation and Xbox, while those that have purchased the Gold or Ultimate Editions will be able to start playing on November 12th once the early access period starts.

Unlike some of the previous games, Battlefield 2042 will be entirely multiplayer focused and will not feature any sort of singleplayer campaign. In order to facilitate this kind of multiplayer action, Battlefield 2042 will also be the first game in the series to feature cross-play! PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S players will all be able to play together on fully populated maps, while the technically weaker Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be together on less populous servers.

As for the actual gameplay, you can get a pretty good idea of what Battlefield 2042 is all about through one of the recently posted trailers. Have a gander:

Once the full version goes live on November 19th I'll make sure to let you know. Until then, you can learn a little bit more about Battlefield 2042 and what sort of plans DICE has for its future over at the EA website.
