EA and DICE just pulled the curtain back on Battlefield 2042, and yet, while we did get an action packed trailer created with the game’s engine, we’ve yet to see real gameplay. Thankfully, following the reveal trailer, EA comms director Andy McNamara announced we’ll be seeing the game in action at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase on June 13.
Hope you enjoyed the trailer. Gameplay at Microsoft on June 13th. See you there.

Battlefield 2042 being a part of Microsoft’s E3 show is potentially meaningful, as it’s been widely rumored the game may be a Day 1 Xbox Game Pass release. EA hasn’t announced anything to that effect yet, but the Xbox E3 showcase would definitely the right time to drop the news.
