With Battlefield 2042 Season 3 in full swing, DICE have confirmed that Season 4 is on the way. Here’s everything we know including the Season 4 release date window, new map details, Discarded overhaul, and content.
Battlefield 2042 was confirmed to have four seasons in its first year and although Season 3 coincided with its launch anniversary, Season 4 will arrive in 2023. Season 3 brought the brand-new Spearhead map, Zain specialist, and even more classic weapons, and we can expect similar content in Season 4.
Here’s everything that’s been confirmed about Battlefield 2042 Season 4 so far, including the release date window, new map details, Discarded rework, and content.
- Battlefield 2042 Season 4 release date window
- Battlefield 2042 Season 3 end date
- New map Battlefield 2042 Season 4
- Discarded overhaul in Battlefield 2042 Season 4
- Battlefield 2042 Season 4 content
Battlefield 2042 Season 4 release date window
Thanks to a DICE blog post, we know that Battlefield 2042 Season 4 will arrive “in early 2023,” and if Season 3 lasts 12 weeks like Season 2, we expect Season 4 to launch in late February 2023.
Of course, with no official date locked in, we’ll have to wait for more word from DICE and EA.
Battlefield 2042 Season 3 end date
Battlefield 2042 Season 3 will likely end on the same day as Season 4 starts, wrapping up a couple of hours before Season 4 begins while server downtime takes place.
New map Battlefield 2042 Season 4
DICE have confirmed that Battlefield 2042 will receive a new map in Season 4, and will be “smaller, shorter, and linear designed for up close and personal, close-quarters combat that Battlefield is famous for.”
The devs showed off concept art for the new map, showing a large indoor area that’s under construction.
Discarded overhaul in Battlefield 2042 Season 4
DICE have been hard at work overhauling the launch maps, providing more cover, cutting out dead space, and repositioning flags, and Discarded will be overhauled during Battlefield 2042 Season 4.
This leaves Hourglass as the final map to be reworked, and the devs will confirm its release date next year.
Battlefield 2042 Season 4 content
Battlefield 2042 Season 4 will bring the same content you could expect in other seasons, including “a new Specialist, all new Battle Pass, brand new hardware, and more.”
This will also mark the final season of Year 1, with Season 5 arriving later in 2023. While Season 5 brings a new map and Battle Pass, it won’t bring a new Specialist.
