Battlefield 2021 Reveal

The official Battlefield Twitter account recently gave the official date for when the community can expect the highly-anticipated Battlefield 2021 reveal to take place.

Following the official confirmation of a new Battlefield game coming in 2021, the popular first-person shooter franchise’s community has been searching for anything it can find regarding when they will see the official reveal of the newest game in the series.

Battlefield 2021 was originally believed to be revealed in Spring 2021. EA and Dice said that the reveal would be “soon” in April, which led many to believe it would happen in May. Also, the music artist 2WEI, whose music appeared to have been featured in the leaked audio of the Battlefield 2021 reveal trailer, recently posted a teaser that led many to believe they would see the Battlefield 2021 reveal trailer in May.

However, the official Battlefield Twitter account squashed the rumors of the May reveal, and have now confirmed the official reveal date.

Battlefield 2021 reveal date

Battlefield’s Twitter account announced on June 1 that Battlefield 2021 would officially be revealed on June 9 at 7 AM ET / 10 AM ET / 3 PM UK / 4 PM CEST.

This teaser follows the Battlefield’s tease on May 10 that the game would be revealed in June. Battlefield’s Twitter account tweeted out:

“Words that rhyme with Soon:

June
Boom”

This tweet teased that the reveal for the new game will be taking place sometime in June, which was met with plenty of disappointment by the community, as players were hoping that they would get the first look at the newest entry in the franchise sometime in May.

However, it’s now been confirmed that Battlefield 2021 will be officially revealed on Wednesday, June 9.

These teases from EA follow various leaks that have surfaced from the highly-anticipated game over the past few weeks, including the first looks at combat robot dogs, juggernaut soldiers, and images from the game’s trailer.

Almost the whole reveal trailer was reportedly leaked, but other sources have now said that the trailer has totally changed and the leaked version will not be shown in June.

There is no doubt that plenty of players are extremely excited for the Battlefield 2021 reveal to take place, and now we know that June is the month that players burning questions will finally be answered.

JGOD believes Battlefield 2042 “has a long way to go” to be Warzone killer

Call of Duty stat guru JGOD has weighed in on the current Battlefield 2042 gameplay, and how it compares to Call of Duty: Warzone.

Analytical Call of Duty personality JGOD has revealed his thoughts on Battlefield 2042 so far, citing reasons as to why it has some ground to make up already.

Battlefield 2042 is properly out in the open now. Not only have we had the game’s dramatic reveal trailer, but we’ve now seen its gameplay up-close and personal. The footage has prompted CoD personality JGOD to cast his judgment on the gameplay and see how it compares to Call of Duty.

Usually known for his deep look at CoD’s weapons, their stats, hidden stats, and much more, JGOD also regularly plays Call of Duty. Battlefield 2042 is expected to be a direct competition to the Call of Duty battle royale, and JGOD has explained why he thinks it’s not there yet.

Sitting down and evaluating the Battlefield gameplay, JGOD said, “the grapple hook is pretty sick,” and frequently complimented the game’s “size and scale.”

The grappling hook has garnered many positive reactions, with Warzone fans desperate to see something similar added to Warzone.

JGOD was also receptive of the ability to change your gun’s loadout on the fly, saying, “this is probably one of the coolest features, and I think would be sick if CoD adopted.”

But throughout the analysis of the gameplay trailer, JGOD mentioned that Battlefield places a far greater emphasis on vehicular combat than Call of Duty.

As the video drew to a close, JGOD offered his thoughts on Battlefield’s potential: “I still think they got a long way to go to convince me that this is gonna be the CoD killer. I don’t see it from this. People are like “this is going to kill Warzone,” even if Warzone continues to have tons of hackers, I don’t see this killing it. Because this isn’t free-to-play.”

He believes that unless Battlefield launches a free battle royale mode soon after launch, it will be difficult to compete with Warzone, Fortnite, and even Halo Infinite’s free online multiplayer.

Warzone players beg Raven to steal idea from Halo Infinite and Battlefield 2042

Battlefield 2042 and Halo Infinite’s gameplay reveals included a Grappling Hook, something some Warzone players now want to see added.

Warzone and Battlefield 2042 characters

Halo Infinite and Battlefield 2042 were shown off to the world at E3 2021, and Warzone players who watched the reveal spotted something in both games that they want added to Call of Duty’s battle royale mode.

With so many tall buildings spread across Verdansk, players are always looking for ways to gain a height advantage. While there are ziplines attached to some of the constructions, more often than not players need to take flight after flight of stairs to reach the summit of buildings.

While watching both the Battlefield 2042 and Halo Infinite gameplay reveals, Warzone fans spotted Grappling Hooks, and immediately started to discuss how useful they would be around Verdansk to fight back against pesky roof campers.

NRG Esports’ IceManIsaac led the calls, tweeting: “I see grapple guns in the new Halo AND the new Battlefield, but still no grapples in Warzone,” ending with a crying emoji to show his sadness at the situation.

While Isaac thinks it would be a great addition, other Warzone players weren’t quite as excited. Some mentioned that Warzone, especially in its current form with Verdansk ’84, isn’t made for futuristic combat weapons, while others suggested that Grappling Hooks wouldn’t help with campers, but rather give those who like to sit on roofs and snipe down an easier way to get up.

Of course, Grappling Hooks would make it easier for others to get onto the roofs and battle with them there. Anyone who managed to get up there would likely engage in close-quarters combat against these campers, which should give them an advantage, and may balance out the fact that it would be easier for the snipers to get on roofs.

Blackout player with a Grappling Hook

Call of Duty fans will know that this wouldn’t be the first time that a Grappling Hook has been used in the franchise. Black Ops 4’s battle royale Blackout included the tool to improve mobility around its map, but it has yet to make the transition to Warzone.

Whether it will ever be added to the ultra-popular battle royale remains to be seen, but it would certainly shake things up in Warzone if it was.
