Battlefield 2042 Official Reveal Trailer
If you’re feeling like the weekend could use a badass kickstart, this non-stop infusion of chaos and destruction – created by the EA Marcom Cinematics team for first-person shooter Battlefield 2042 – may be just the thing.
Epic in scale yet infinitely detailed, the trailer was created in-engine using Frostbite by a design, animation, and post team spread across studios in Stockholm, Vancouver, and Northern California, with additional staff in the UK and Germany.
Mattias Lindahl, Director of Global Cinematics, EA, Marcom: “In-game cinematics trailers are a genre unto themselves, a mash-up stylistically of movie trailers, commercials and animated shorts.
“There are very few limitations to what we can do creatively. Our team is built out of fans of the game. We have the luxury of crafting our trailers through experts. In a way, our trailers are created by players for players.”
Battlefield 2042 launches on October 22nd on Xbox® One PlayStation®4 and PC, and on Xbox® Series X and S and PlayStation®5.
