By now, the hype building around EA and DICE’s upcoming Battlefield 2042 is beginning to bubble on its way to launch this October. Whether it’s the return to modern combat or the recently announced Battlefield Portal, the next game in the series sure looks like a return to form.
A new short film titled Exodus showcasing what started the No-Pat war featured in Battlefield 2042. Battlefield 4’s Kimble “Irish” Graves (Michael K. Williams) returns as a commander of the No-Pat vessel Exodus, where he must choose between his 200 passengers or the future of the Non-Patriated.
The events witnessed in the short film serve as the trigger to the war Battlefield 2042 will focus on. Since the game is launching with no dedicated single-player campaign, this film is the catalyst to understanding the world DICE is developing for its next game. EA says the story of Battlefield 2042 will “continue to evolve over time” and will be told by additional specialists. So far Casper, Mackay, Boris, and Falck, and now Irish are the confirmed characters in the game.
Battlefield 2042 is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X on October 22.
