What Is Hazard Zone?
We don’t know exactly what Hazard Zone is, but the trailer confirms it is squad-based. Additionally, DICE has described it as an “all-new high-stakes multiplayer experience…”
DICE’s Oskar Gabrielson teased in July that it’s “not your classic battle royale,” but is instead aiming to blaze its own trail. Hazard Zone is a “high stakes squad based game mode with a lot of high tension. It’s not your classic battle royale, it’s a really contemporary mode,” he said.
“It’s also something the team has been thinking about for many years. It has some really special components, and it really leans into the super powers of Battlefield and DICE at the same time,” Gabrielson added.
Hazard Zone is the third pillar of Battlefield 2042’s multiplayer-only approach. The other main modes are All-Out Warfare (which includes classic Battlefield modes like Conquest and Rush), as well as Portal. This ambitious-sounding mode lets players create their own maps and modes, and they can mix and match content from previous games, including Bad Company 2.
After a delay, Battlefield 2042 is now scheduled to arrive on November 19 across console and PC.
