This week we could not complain about the lack of interesting information about Battlefield 2042 – DICE presented a story trailer introducing players to the events, confirming one of the specialists , and the community shared materials from alpha tests .
Fans do not give up and are happy to search files provided by DICE – as it turns out, the developers did not do their homework, leaving the details of Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone among the data.
Still a mysterious mode is “a mixture of Escape from Tarkov and Hunt Showdown”, but the developers in this case will not provide players with new maps – the action is to take place on locations delivered to positions from the release date and available in other game variants.
At the beginning, we will see a small briefing, and then the soldiers’ task is to search the area – during the game, players are to collect data from disks and crashed satellites. Interestingly, in this case, death does not have to mean the end of the game, but we can lose the equipment they have previously acquired – players can, however, protect themselves from such equipment by selecting one of the tactical improvements called “loading insurance”.
The locations in the Hazard Zone are to offer many interesting points – such as ammunition stations and launchers. During the game, players will use a robot dog or vehicles (HDT Storm) – during the struggle, we can even come across an armed squad of soldiers controlled by AI, which are to patrol selected zones The game will even include “bosses” (SI) who are likely to be additional targets.
Hazard Zone seems to be indeed a mix between Escape from Tarkov & Hunt Showdown.
The 🚀 "Orbital" map in #Battlefield 2042 has built-in support for this game mode. Other known locations can't be verified without additional data. No sign of a Hazard Zone exclusive map available. pic.twitter.com/C1imZe2Hdi
