Ahead of tomorrow’s Xbox press conference with a brief glimpse of gameplay for Battlefield 2042.
Battlefield 2042 is one of E3’s biggest games this year with their publisher playing to the strength of the fans who have been waiting to see the reveal. Although Battlefield 2042 was revealed via a special presentation prior to E3 202 it will have a bigger platform to showcase itself during EA Play this year. Although we’re waiting for the upcoming gameplay to come out tomorrow, EA has confirmed in a short teaser that it’s showcasingg Battlefield 2042 as part of the Xbox E3 press conference.
The small teaser only runs for about 15 seconds long and only a couple of seconds of actual Battlefield 2042 footage is shown. That footage only shows a mid-air battle from multiple perspectives as multiple jets and helicopters fire rockets in every direction. We also hear a soldier shooting, “Mayday! Mayday!” Finally, the teaser ends with “Gameplay Premier Tomorrow”. The message is pretty clear as tomorrow is the Xbox/Bethesda Showcase which will feature so many new games and surprises for existing titles. The link between the two is apparent as it’s clearly stated in Battlefield’s latest tweet.
