Since the multiplayer-centric series known as Battlefield won't ship with a single player campaign in the latest entry Battlefield 2042, developer EA DICE is prepping players ahead of time with a short film that sets up the events which lead into its online bouts for supremacy. Those multiplayer matches are taking the Titanfall route, injecting them with a bit of story here and there, but besides that, this near 10-minute introduction is all you're going to get.

"Battlefield 4’s Kimble “Irish” Graves returns - no longer a Marine, but the commander of the No-Pat vessel Exodus, forced to choose between the lives of the 200 refugees on his boat and the future of all the Non-Patriated," the YouTube description reads. "Witness the events that will trigger an all-out war in this standalone short film set in the World of 2042."
