Battlefield 2042The first live service event, The Liquidators, has been announced and it’s coming soon. The limited-time event runs from October 11-25, bringing in a new regimen, cosmetics, and more.
The Liquidator event also has some narrative elements. You will play as the Liquidator, a member of the “evil attack squad”, confronting the Black Market forces that are threatening your business.
The event includes a new mode, Tactical Conquest, a fast-paced, infantry-only mode close to Conquest. “You’re playing against opposing teams, where you’re going to try to capture and hold three flags. Win the round by spending all of your opponent’s tickets,” said DICE.
The Liquidators is a two-week event and the number of players will rotate – starting with 8v8 in week one and 16v16 in week 2.
Maps in Tactical Conquest include Arica Harbour, Breakaway, Caspian Border, Discarded, Renewal, and Stranded.
Everyone who simply logs into Battlefield 2042 during the event period will receive a free themed headgear and weapon skin, which you can see in the image above. There are other cosmetic bonuses to grab, including the following:
- 10 Ribbons – Epic player card background “The Shield”
- 30 Ribbons – Epic AM40 Weapon Skin “Kinetic Caliber”
- 60 Ribbons – Epic “Wrecking Crew” Bulldozer Expert Set
- 100 Ribbons – Skin of the legendary M1A5 “Troy” Car
EA has many new Battlefield “experiences” in the works, including a Narrative project from Marcus Lehto’s Ridgeline Games, co-creator of Halo and a new project at Battlefield Portal developer Ripple Effect. DICE will continue to work on Battlefield’s multiplayer and another Halo veteran, Alex Seropian, is developing Battlefield Mobile through his Industrial Toys studio.
