battlefield 2042 season 1 zero hour keyart

It may not have gone down as well as many had predicted, but EA are still getting right behind Battlefield 2042. They are proving that with the launch of the first season of new content, as players take the fight to the mountains in Season 1: Zero Hour.

Available from June 9th 2022 on all the usual formats – Xbox, PlayStation, PC – Season 1: Zero Hour introduces the Exposure map, a new Specialist in the form of Ewelina Lis, a new gadget, new vehicles, weapons, Battlefield Portal additions and the introduction of Battlefield 2042’s Battle Pass, to the game.

Battlefield 2042 – Season 1: Zero Hour is the game’s first season of post-launch content and brings with it a new map with vertical thrills, a new Specialist, as well as tactical additions to the player’s arsenal of weapons and gadgets. These core content additions are available to all players as part of Battlefield 2042’s new Battle Pass whilst additional cosmetic items – including legendary skins and melee takedowns – can be obtained through a Premium version of the Battle Pass – whether that be via a standalone purchase or through BF2042’s Gold or Ultimate Edition.

In Zero Hour, players can head to the Canadian Rockies and traverse the vertical terrain in the new Exposure map. This brings out the best in the ground-to-air combat, as well as tight infantry fights, as you await within caves and among mountain ridges. Exposure will be available in All-Out Warfare and Portal when Season 1 launches.

Further, this new season introduces Ewelina Lis, Battlefield 2042’s newest Specialist. A renowned vehicle-killer exceptionally skilled at tracking down and destroying armored land vehicles and aircrafts, Lis will come with a rocket launcher which fires remote-controlled missiles for pinpoint accuracy, and the valuable-intel providing Armor Hunter trait make her a deadly foe to any vehicle on the ground or in the sky.

There’s a host of new stuff here and Zero Hour also adds new vehicles and items to collect. You’ll be given the chance to pilot the new RAH-68 Huron and YG-99 Hannibal Gunships, equipped with radar deflection and advanced defensive capabilities, alongside being able to choose from regular, light, heavy, and explosive ammo with the Ghostmaker R10 Crossbow and adapt to different combat situations. You’ll also have the chance to take out enemies from afar in All-Out Warfare with the BSV-M Marksman Rifle, ideal for mid-range combat, or utilise the new Smoke Grenade Launcher in both offensive and defensive situations to open up new windows of opportunity and lay down extra cover for your squad..

Want more? You got it and Battlefield 2042 Season 1: Zero Hour brings with it a continuation of fixes across patches since the game’s launch, targeting stability, gameplay balance, gunplay, vehicle handling, performance and more – as outlined, alongside the pillars of our long-term support, in the recent Development Update. Battlefield Portal players will also see the return of some iconic vehicles and experiences, whilst those who see themselves as a creator can look forward to a new game mode preset and expanded rules editor functionality.
