Battlefield 2042 Season 4: Eleventh Hour Update
Season 4: Eleventh Hour is just another piece continuing the trend of regular season updates in the Battlefield 2042 franchise.
As is the tradition, each Battlefield Season Update introduces a map with new experiences for players to take on and push the limits of their gameplay strategies. This time players find themselves in the arid rocky landscape of South Africa. Known as Flashpoint, this map is particularly designed for fierce close-range battles. Since each map in Battlefield 2042 is suited for a particular combat style, Flashpoint is the perfect heaven for high-octane close-quarter mayhem.
In addition, players will also get access to a new specialist: Camila Blasco in this Season Update. Hailing from the Recon class, Camila Blasco is an ambush expert. Thanks to her training, tactical gear, and intelligence, she can move through a landscape undetected. She has access to an X6-Infiltration Device that acts like a signal jammer to prevent any lock-ons from hostile devices and interferes with active spotting technology. In addition to a Constant Steady Scope ability, Camila also has an Insertion Beacon tool that allows friendlies to spawn on a designated location. All in all, she is as deadly as she is charming to the eyes. You can further read her backstory here.
A further addition of 4 new lethal weapons significantly hypes up the blood-pumping exchange of intense up-close firefights. Following are the weapons introduced: Super 500 Shotgun Sidearm, RM68 Assault Rifle, AC9 SMG, and RPT-31 LMG. These new weapons are the perfect avatar of destruction and with the correct usage, players can easily dominate the close quarters with the compact Super 500 Shotgun Sidearm and the next-gen RM68 Assault Rifle. Furthermore, they can also break hell loose with the fast hip-fire rate of AC9 SMG and wreak havoc on the battlefield with the heavy-hitting RPT-31 LMG.
Lastly, there is also an all-new IFV-type vehicle, known as CAV-Brawler, that players can maneuver through the highly dangerous battlefield. This CAV-Brawler provides ample protection for the soldiers within.
And in order to enjoy all of the above mouth-watering updates, players need Battlefield 2042 Season 4: Eleventh Hour Battle Pass. This will essentially allow them to access the 100-tiers of this new Season Update, of which 30 are free while 70 are reserved for premium. Notedly, all the gameplay-related unlockable content is available in the free version of the battle pass while the premium version unlocks skins, battlefield currency, and XP boosters among many other things.
Moreover, Year 1 Pass owners who have already purchased the Battlefield 2042 Ultimate Edition or who are members of EA Play Pro, will automatically get access to the new Specialist as well as the Premium Battle Pass.
Battlefield 2042 (Overview)
Battlefield 2042 is the first-person shooter video game developed by DICE. It offers players the following three exciting modes of play: All-Out Warfare, Battlefield Portal, and Cooperative Multiplayer.
Since Battlefield 2042 is set in the future, the game features a range of futuristic weapons that takes the gameplay experience to a whole new level. One of the most significant changes to the game is the overhaul of the class system. In Battlefield 2042, players choose one operator who falls under one of the four traditional Battlefield classes: Assault, Engineer, Support, and Recon. Moreover, each operator comes with their own unique skill, which can be used to gain an advantage over opponents.
Another key feature of Battlefield 2042 is the dynamic environment, which features destructive environments and ever-changing weather conditions that can significantly impact a player’s gameplay style. Players must make use of their surroundings to their advantage by leveraging destructible cover and adapting to changing weather effects such as tornadoes and sandstorms.
Moreover, Battlefield 2042 also supports cross-platform play, meaning that players can enjoy the game with friends across multiple platforms. However, this cross-platform support is only available for Windows, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S users. Although PS4 and Xbox One users also have access to cross-platform play, however, it is only limited to these 2 platforms only.
Since Battlefield 2042 is a multiplayer game, there is no single-story campaign. Consequently, the game plot is told through multiplayer mode.
The game is set in the near future and it is revealed that because of decades of collapsing economies due to mismanagement, rising sea levels due to global warming, and broken alliances due to mistrust come to a peak in 2040 when the Kessler event occurs. The crash of 70% of satellites and the ensuing global blackout ultimately paves the way for an all-out war between the USA and Russia.
Moreover, additional story content for Battlefield 2042 is available on the official EA Battlefield 2042 website. A further short standalone film titled EXODUS fulfills the story gap by highlighting the events leading up to the 2042 war.
