New Battlefield 2021 leak reveals upcoming trailer audio
The music and audio from Battlefield 2021’s trailer have reportedly surfaced online, with prominent industry insider Tom Henderson confirming the leak to be genuine.
It’s likely that almost every Battlefield player remembers Battlefield 1’s trailer for its awesome remix of The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army.’ Battlefield V’s trailer’s lack of music was somewhat of a disappointment, so players have been anxiously waiting to see what DICE has cooked up for Battlefield 2021’s trailer.
A ton of information has been leaked surrounding the title, such as its title, setting, and that it’s likely going to be a Game Pass launch title. A new leak has reportedly revealed the trailer’s music and audio, and leaker and industry insider Tom Henderson has confirmed this is from the trailer he has seen.
In this 30-second audio clip, we can hear the sound of machine-gun bullets being sprayed, a jet flying overhead, and a soldier shouting “pull back” before metallic creaking that sounds like a large structure coming down. Over the sound of the battle, we can hear a cinematic track racking up the tension.
In his discord server, Tom Henderson confirmed that this audio is from the trailer he heard. However, although Tom confirmed he believes the leak is genuine, he explained why he’s “disappointed” it leaked.
Images from the trailer were recently posted online, but they were from the “first pass,” and “not intended to be released to the public.” Henderson has said that the audio is also from this first pass, so “everyone needs to calm down” as the trailer’s audio will likely be vastly better.
Through the music app Shazam, players have figured out that the song from the leaked audio is ‘Run Baby Run‘ by 2WEI featuring Ali Christenhusz. Henderson previously stated that the trailer has its own theme but has admitted he was mistaken as he’d never heard the track before, but it is indeed this song he heard.
In a recent live stream, Henderson said that by the end of the trailer, the music will shift to the Battlefield theme. He also said that it “looks like a movie,” but may also provide more questions than answers.
Along with the confirmation that Battlefield 2021 would be next-gen only, EA said that the trailer would be coming “soon.” The trailer was expected to release in early May, so we must only be days away from its official reveal.
