'Battlefield 2042' Reveals The Liquidators Time-Limited Event, Kicks Off Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 6, 2022 @ 1:22 p.m. PDT

Battlefield 2042 is a groundbreaking first-person shooter set to revolutionize the modern multiplayer sandbox.

Powered by cutting-edge technology that pushes the capabilities of next generation hardware, the game drops players into a near-future, all-out-war experience that includes the franchise’s hallmark, game-changing destruction.

Featuring matches filled with up to 128 players and massive-scale maps on PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PCs (Xbox One and PS4 are capped at 64 players and reduced map sizes), this unprecedented scale adds a new dimension to multiplayer battles.

Battlefield 2042 also ups the action with the inclusion of real-time events that reshape the battlefield and tactical combat. All new weapons, vehicles and gadgets give players the freedom to be strategic and create jaw-dropping, only-in-Battlefield moments.

In Battlefield 2042, the world is on the brink. Shortages of food, energy and clean water have led to dozens of failed nations, creating the greatest refugee crisis in human history. Among these Non-Patriated, or No-Pats, are families, farmers, engineers - and even soldiers. Amidst this crisis, the United States and Russia draw the world into an all-out war. No-Pat Specialists join both sides, not fighting for a flag, but for the future of the Non-Patriated in this new world.

Players will jump into the boots of Specialists, an all-new type of playable soldier for the franchise. Inspired by the traditional four Battlefield classes, Specialists will be equipped with their own unique Specialist Trait and Specialty, and will have fully customizable loadouts. As a Specialist, players will have access to a cutting-edge arsenal of weapons, equipment and vehicles to use in battle. These powerful new tools give creative players a wealth of options as they find the perfect combination to fit their play style and outsmart and outgun opponents on the battlefield.

The Liquidators is limited-time event allows players to jump into the shoes of a vicious hit squad, taking down enemies in tighter playspaces and capturing key locations in prime close-quarters combat.

A breakdown of key features includes:

  • New Mode: Tactical Conquest - Play a smaller infantry focused and fast-paced close-quarters variant of Conquest, rotating between 8x8 and 16v16 on Week 1 and 2, respectively
  • Tighter Playspaces - Modified areas specific to The Liquidators to be found in Arica Harbor, Breakaway, Caspian Border, Discarded, Renewal and Stranded
  • New Missions & Rewards - Earn Ribbons in Tactical Conquest to unlock unique rewards during the event:
    • 10 Ribbons - Epic “The Shield” Player Card Background
    • 30 Ribbons - Epic “Kinetic Caliber” AM40 Weapon Skin
    • 60 Ribbons - Epic “Wrecking Crew” Dozer Specialist Set
    • 100 Ribbons - Legendary “Trojan Horse” M1A5 Vehicle Skin
  • Login Reward and a free themed Headgear and Weapon Skin from the Store

You Are The Liquidators.

When a competitor threatens their business, the Dark Market sends their Liquidators - a vicious hit squad that specializes in "involuntary asset liquidation". Your job is to dissolve enemy squads from the Battlefield and capture areas critical to the Dark Market's bottom line.

The Liquidators are here to get the job done.

From tighter playspaces, smaller teams to infantry only, this 2-week only, mid-season event is prime close-quarters combat. Play your cards right and make the difference. Your squad will need it.

Come join us as a vicious hit squad in time-limited The Liquidators Event between October 11-25, and earn unique rewards.

NEW MODE: TACTICAL CONQUEST

Play a smaller infantry focused and fast-paced close-quarters variant of Conquest. You’re pitted against opposing squads where you’ll try to capture and hold three flags. Win the round by depleting the enemy tickets.

Squad-based gameplay is going to be key here when attempting to retain control of objectives. Make ample use of Spawn Beacons, potential flank routes, and charge enemy-occupied objectives as a team. The more people on the objective when capturing, the faster the capture speed.

We’ll rotate the player count for Tactical Conquest during the event:

  • Week 1 - 8v8
  • Week 2 - 16v16

Tighter Playspaces

Fight to eliminate the competition on tight playspaces in Arica Harbor, Breakaway, Caspian Border, Discarded, Renewal and Stranded.


NEW MISSIONS & REWARDS

Earn Ribbons in Tactical Conquest to unlock unique rewards during the event:

  • 10 Ribbons - Epic “The Shield” Player Card Background
  • 30 Ribbons - Epic “Kinetic Caliber” AM40 Weapon Skin
  • 60 Ribbons - Epic “Wrecking Crew” Dozer Specialist Set
  • 100 Ribbons - Legendary “Trojan Horse” M1A5 Vehicle Skin

During the event you’ll also be able to grab a Login Reward and a free themed Headgear and Weapon Skin from the Store.

We are excited to get this event into your hands and see you try out the new Tactical Conquest gameplay.

Battlefield 2042 includes 3 distinct multiplayer experiences:

  • All-Out Warfare - the next generation of fan-favorite modes Conquest and Breakthrough, featuring the largest maps ever for the franchise and for the first time, up to 128 players (on XSX, PS5 and PC). Experience the intensity of All-Out Warfare in large-scale battles like never before on maps filled with dynamic weather, dangerous environmental hazards and spectacular world events that see tornadoes rip across the map and sandstorms block out the sun.
  • Hazard Zone - an all-new, high-stakes, squad-based game-type for the Battlefield franchise that is a modern take on the multiplayer experience that is distinctly DICE but very different from All-Out Warfare’s Conquest or Breakthrough modes.
  • Portal Mode - A first for the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield Portal is a community-driven platform designed to offer a huge variety of imaginative experiences by giving players the tools to set their own rules and build their own definitive Battlefield experience - and share them with other people.

All Out Warfare launches with seven maps total. Let’s take a quick tour of those:

  • Kaleidoscope [Sogdo, South Korea] This cityscape features dense roadways and skyscrapers that can be explored, or if you’ve a wingsuit, leapt off. It’s here that a tornado that dwarves the glittering buildings will make its presence known.
  • Manifest [Brani Island, Singapore] Supply lines are under threat in this key location for global trade.
  • Orbital [Kourou, French Guiana] Players will battle in the shadow of a towering space rocket pad that’s counting down to an imminent launch. 
  • Discarded [Alang, India] Clash around, through and on top of massive ship hulks and the surrounding cranes.
  • Renewal [Eastern Desert, Egypt] Wrestle for control of an agriculture technology centre in the Egyptian Desert.
  • Hourglass [Doha, Qatar] An approaching sandstorm will shift the tide of war taking place at the heart of a city.
  • Breakaway [Queen Maud Land, Antarctica] From hot deserts to icy landscapes: oil and gas are the key resources being fought over here. Insert on the mountaintops with a wingsuit and you can dive into industrial buildings below.

Post launch, Battlefield 2042’s first year promises four seasons of content, bringing with them four new Specialists plus new locations. Each season is marked by a new Battle Pass. EA confirms that new locations will be accessible to all players.

Battlefield 2042 is available for Xbox One, PS4, PC ($59.99), for Xbox Series X|S and PS5 ($69.99).
