Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 continues the closed beta test phase, but in the meantime news and information about it continue to emerge, all to be taken as rumors since EA has not released further details on the shooter, but in this case the question is interesting because yes talks about the Hazard Zone mode, which seems to be inspired by Escape from Tarkov.

The source of inspiration is undoubtedly interesting, although there is nothing confirmed for the moment, as DICE has not yet revealed officially the modality in question. In Escape from Tarkov, a shooter that has been a great success with PC users, players must traverse a vast map to an extraction point, fighting against players and threats proposed by artificial intelligence while crossing the area looking for the best. tactics and way to reach the goal.

It is also possible to reach alternative extraction points, but to unlock them it is necessary to reach some particular objectives, mainly related to the collection of objects and loot within the map. These items collected in the game remain with the player once the extraction point is reached, or are completely lost if defeated.

Battlefield 2042's Hazard Zone mode should follow these guidelines, according to the Twitter user temporyal, who has made some minus date on the game. Also in this, we are thrown into the Orbital map, for example, in search of an extraction point usually located far from where we arrive.

The map can also be explored in search of weapons, equipment and various loot that significantly modify the game experience but can be lost if we are defeated. In the map there are also points where it is possible to recall some supports, while around you have to face the threats represented by the patrols managed by the CPU and by the other players, as well as possible "bosses" managed by the AI.

As far as it's always about Battlefield 2042, we have seen that the tech test runs better on Xbox than on PC, while on PS5 it was canceled due to a "critical issue".

Datamined Battlefield 2042 tech test reveals Escape from Tarkov-style Hazard Zone mode

The Battlefield 2042 technical test has led to some revelations about the upcoming first person shooter, in particular the nature of the Hazard Zone game mode.

While they have officially revealed nothing except for the mode’s name, DICE have been keen to stress that Hazard Zone is most certainly not a battle royale game mode. Instead, dataminer Temporyal has been able to uncover references in the technical test that suggest Hazard Zone is more like multiplayer survival shooter Escape from Tarkov.


Temporyal examined the “Orbital” map from Battlefield 2042, which seems to have built-in support for the game mode – there won’t be a Hazard Zone exclusive map, unlike the battle royale mode for Battlefield V. From there, they were able to discover that you will be dropped into an area via Little Bird and tasked with collecting intel from data drives and crashed satellites, before trying to reach an extraction point in time.

Hazard Zone maps will have interactive points for picking up ammo, calling in the Ranger robot dog or HDT Storm ATV to get around. These boosts will come in handy when encountering AI soldiers on patrol, who can then call in reinforcements and parachute in. AI “bosses” could also appear.

Through successful extractions, you’ll earn Hazard Zone currency, which could be used to buy one of the twelve tactical upgrades, from spotting duration and increased ammo to an additional player respawn.

From what Temporyal seems to have uncovered from the technical test, it sounds like DICE has been inspired by Escape from Tarkov, which has a similar goal of finding loot and making an escape to an extraction zone. There’s also certain shades of Hunt: Showdown. However, it’s not clear how many players Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone will support. The main ‘All-Out Warfare’ game modes support up to 128 players on current gen consoles and PC. Will Hazard Zone be as tense and sparse as its inspirations, or will it be an action-fest like the rest of Battlefield 2042?

So far, DICE has officially unveiled the All-Out Warfare mode with Conquest and Breakthrough and up to 128 players on newer systems – PS4 and Xbox One will be restricted to 64 players. The game will have the biggest maps ever found in the series, as well as AI characters that will help keep these massive maps feeling populated at all times.

Alongside that, the newly rebranded Ripple Effect studio has cooked up Battlefield Portal. Remastering content from the original Battlefield 1942, Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3, Portal puts control of the game in your hands, letting users mashup their own game modes, create unique experiences, and more.

Battlefield 2042 will release on 22nd October 2021 across PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
