Battlefield 2042 is getting a new limited-time event called Leviathan Rising, which introduces a tight, 8v8 competitive mode in which teamwork and nerves of steel will be essential. It runs from 11th April until the 25th, and we got an explosive trailer showing it in action.

This more focused game mode is called Shutdown, and should provide a welcome respite for players used to 2042's expansive battlefields. We imagine the change of scenery won't stop that one teammate from running a sniper anyway, but we digress.

Will you be diving in to check out Shutdown once Leviathan Rising kicks off? Prepare for deployment in the comments section below.
