Battlefield 2042 devs unveil its latest thrilling PvP game mode, Hazard Zone


Battlefield 2042’s latest game mode, Hazard Zone, has been revealed, and it’s something a little different from anything we’ve seen in the series – or elsewhere – to date. The new mode sends teams of four No-Pat specialists into hostile territory to retrieve data from downed satellites, then rush to extract it from the area by plane. As EA insisted, it’s not a battle royale game, but what is it exactly?

Hazard Zone is a team-based mode that will be playable on the seven All-Out Warfare maps included at the launch of Battlefield 2042. However, it will be a completely different type of experience. You will be placed in a team of four and before the game you and your teammates will select your specialists. DICE says this is an important step: you will need to carefully consider the approach you will take during the match and choose specialists whose equipment and skills work together for this strategy.

Once you’re dropped off, you and your team will use a special danger zone-specific gadget called the Intel Scanner to locate downed satellites, which store data drives – those being your real focus in the mode. While only a few satellite crash sites will be active at the start of each match, more satellites will drop over the course of the game.

Your team should secure as many data drives as possible before ripping, and you’ll have two predetermined opportunities to do so. The first extraction takes place a few minutes after the start of the match, while a second – and final – extraction is available approximately 10 to 12 minutes after the start of the match.

Here is the trailer:

If you’re heading straight for the satellites, you’ll have to deal with the AI-controlled U.S. or Russian occupation forces sent in to secure the data itself. Hiring these soldiers can be costly, and DICE points out that it will alert other teams in your location as well – so choosing to get hot can be difficult.

Your Intel scanner, however, will also pick up discs carried by other players – so there’s always the possibility of bringing down an exhausted team that has just raided a satellite site and is trying to make a successful escape.

There are only two possibilities for extraction, so these encounters will likely be just as tense, but only one member of your team needs to escape so that you can get credit for everything you have picked up during the match.

Discs you collect during a match convert into a metagame currency called Black Market Credits, which you can use before each match to purchase tactical upgrades, weapons, and gadgets that will give you an advantage. next time you leave.

There is only a little over a month until the Battlefield 2042 release date, although players who pre-order the Ultimate and Gold editions, as well as EA Play subscribers, will be able to get started a week earlier.
