Battlefield 2042 latest season update will finally bring some new content to the game. Here’s everything the new update has to offer.

Battlefield 2042 is a first-person shooter game developed by DICE and published by Electronic Arts. The game came out on November 19th, 2021 but received mixed reviews from critics and negative reviews from players. Battlefield 2042 differs from previous Battlefield titles because it lacks a single-player campaign and is entirely focused on multiplayer.

Due to poor reviews and technical issues, Battlefield 2042 failed to reach sales expectations. The players base on steam even dipped below 1000 in the last few weeks. Some of the main reasons for this are the lack of content, bugs, glitches, etc.

But finally, Battlefield 2042 is bringing out some new content for the playerbase, and below, we will learn all about them, including the new Season 1 Zero Hour Battle Pass, map, specialist, hardware release date, and more.

Battlefield 2042 Season 1 Zero Hour:

New Map Exposure:

Battlefield 2042 players are getting a new map called Exposure. The new map is situated in Canada and has extreme vertical terrain. Players can expect ground to air combat as well as infantry fights while playing this map. The map is separated into separate parts-

Black Ridge:

On this part of the map. you and your squad need to seize control of a contested military base. Once you’ve secured the area. head to the elevators and move down to capture the interiors.

Mission Operations:

This area consists of two sub-sections. the tunnel and the server room. The tunnel holds the vehicle elevator which players on wheels can utilize to get to the Black Ridge section. If you enter the server room. prepare for intense close-quarter combat gameplay. From here. you can also take a zipline to the Command Center.

Command Center:

Located smack in the middle of Exposure. the Command Center is designed to be an intense. highly populated battleground. The area consists of three sub-sections: The Tunnels. The Office. and The Balcony. Tanks can roam the former while infantry troops will engage in the office section. If you’re fighting on The Balcony. expect enemy helis to pay a visit. This clash of armor. infantry. and aircraft will create a ton of memorable Battlefield moments.

Mountain Complex:

This area consists of two sub-sections. a tunnel and office room. The tunnel holds the vehicle elevator, which the players can take to the monitoring section. The office room supports intense close-quarter combat gameplay and lets you take a zipline to the Command Center.


Following a disastrous landslide. some of the interior of the research facility has been exposed and the surrounding area has been damaged. This is the lowest part of the valley in Exposure. and its vital to stay alert. Watch out for players jumping down from the cliffs. Use ziplines to get to higher points or stay down and hold the space for your team.

Mountain Station:

Capture the radar station in this section to get a good overview of the map’s upper area. If you’re approaching this control point in a vehicle. use the open spaces. Infantry should use the interior spaces to be safe. The flag at this control point sits dangerously close to the cliff edge. enabling infantry who have just captured the flag to make a dramatic exit. Jump off. deploy your parachute or wingsuit. and discover the rest of Exposure.

New Specialist: Ewelina Lis

Ewelina Lis is the new specialist coming to Battlefield 2042 with the new Season 1 update. She is from Poland, and her class is Engineer. Lise specializes in Anti Vehicle combat, and her Trait is Armor Hunter.

“A true anti-vehicle expert, Ewelina Lis was born in Gdansk and got recruited into Poland’s elite special force (GROM) at age 21. Committed and earnest, Lis is a defiant, honour-bound warrior who can overcome any obstacle (or blow it to pieces.)”
