Battlefield 2042 has been in a difficult spot basically since launch, and DICE has been working hard to try and get it in shape. That includes putting a stopper on an entire third of the game with Hazard Zone development coming to an end, but it also means brand new content in the form of seasonal drops. The very first season is Zero Hour, which has just received a flashy trailer.
Season 1 is scheduled to launch very soon indeed, following a pretty hefty delay. It's coming on 9th June 2022, which is just a couple of days away. It's better late than never, but what does it bring to the table? The headline additions in Zero Hour are a new cliffside map named Exposure and a new Specialist who goes by Ewelina Lis, wielding a rocket launcher from which you can manually pilot the projectile. Beyond that are one or two new weapons and some new helicopters to confidently climb into and then send immediately spiralling into the earth.
This new season launches alongside an enormous game update that makes a vast number of changes, which you can read more about through here.
Will you be jumping back into Battlefield 2042 to check out Zero Hour? Skydive into the comments section below.

Manually controllable rocket launchers will never not be fun. Very fond memories of the Sentinel in 007 Nightfire’s multiplayer.
@nessisonett I used to be able to maneuver the fly-by-wire rockets in perfect Dark through entire levels. My buddy and I used to have races.
Never jumped out..this sounds awesome..
Wow. Can’t wait for the 1 new map, 1 new specialist and 2 new weapons. It’s not like it’s been 8 months since launch and the game launched broken and barebones. LMAO.
Funny isn't it in that they have no choice but to put content for a dead game as people paid for these seasons in advance.
How discounted is the game already it looks cool. And does it run good now or is it still a bugfest? One thing is for sure they released the game atleast one year to early.
Yep, I was the fool who brought the season with the game, won’t be playing this and won’t be buying another - watch the market shift back to cod
@nessisonett Rayman 3's one was really fun! I used to regrab the power multiple times just for the fun of it
If they add new trophies i will come back
Remember when Liam was mad at me for saying the devs were lazy for not doing a campaign? Yeah I'm sorry...not for saying that, but for taking those words back lol Launching the season 8 months after release is just hilarious and they surely deserve the low number of players they have in this.
Next time either delay the game or plan it better.
