As Battlefield 2042‘s launch date rapidly approaches, Dice is starting to ramp up its marketing campaign. To start things off with a bang, Dice has released a 9-minute short film featuring familiar characters.
While Battlefield 2042 will not feature a single-player campaign, this short film sets up the all-out war seen in the game. Irish and Pac, the two side-protagonists featured in Battlefield 4, make a shocking return. However, they are no longer on the same side.
Irish is no longer a U.S. marine but a commander of the No-Pad vessel “Exodus,” hosting over 200 refugees. In an unexpected conflict with former ally Pac over secret intel, Irish must choose between the refugees and the future of all the Non-Patriated.
In this excellently directed and shot short film, we can witness the events that lead up to 2042‘s conflict. It’s pretty neat to see known characters return, especially as Irish will be playable in the game! Watch it here:
All Out War Begins
Battlefield 2042 is releasing on October 22nd, 2021, on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. Pre-order the game to receive the Irish “Battle Hardened Legendary Skin” and more, including early access to the open beta!
