Battlefield 2042 Season 2 brought even more welcome changes including a new map, weapons, Specialist, and more. Next up is Season 3, so here’s when the new season is expected to kick off along with the classic Class system, map changes, and more.

Battlefield 2042 is now in its second season, and a ton of changes have been made since its launch. DICE aren’t stopping there though, bringing new weapons, maps, vehicles, and quality of life updates throughout its seasons.

Season 3 is set to arrive later in 2022, bringing some highly requested features such as the classic Class system and even more map overhauls. Here’s everything about Battlefield 2042 Season 3 including its expected start date, Class system, and map overhauls.

Expected Battlefield 2042 Season 3 start date & Season 2 end date

According to the weekly challenges, Battlefield 2042 Season 2 is set to last 12 weeks, coming to an end on November 22, 2022.

Assuming there are no delays or downtime, we expect Battlefield 2042 Season 3 to kick off on November 22 as well. This puts Season 3 just over a year after Battlefield 2042’s launch.

Battlefield 2042 devs DICE confirmed that they plan to bring a “massive overhaul” of the current Specialist system in Season 3, reintroducing the four classic Classes — Assault, Recon, Support, and Engineer.

Gadgets will be Class-specific but weapons will still remain unrestricted, and DICE will be bringing in more balance passes for the Specialists to help define their roles and they’ll continue to improve their “Voices, Body Posture, and Facial Expression changes.”

Here’s where each of the existing Specialists will be placed following Season 3’s overhaul:

Assault

  • Webster Mackay
  • Santiago “Dozer”Espinoza
  • Emma “Sundance” Rosier

Recon

  • Ji-soo Paik
  • Wikus “Casper” Van Daele
  • Navin Rao

Support

  • Maria Falck
  • Constantin “Angel” Anghel

Engineer

They haven’t revealed which maps will be getting changed, but they’re “already hard at work on our next set of improvements for Season 3, with two further maps presently under review for improvements.”

By the end of Season 2, Kaleidoscope, Renewal, and Orbital will be overhauled, leaving Hourglass, Discarded, Manifest, and Breakaway as future Season 3 candidates.

Expected Battlefield 2042 Season 3 content

Alongside the Class system and map changes, we expect more of Battlefield 2042’s standard seasonal content to arrive in Season 3.

Here’s everything we expect to arrive:

  • New map
  • New Specialist
  • New weapons
  • New vehicles
  • New Gadgets
  • More Portal weapons moved to All Out Warfare
