New Battlefield 6 Update: Everything you should know

All new Battlefield 6 update with latest Gadgets, Vehicles, and Weapons

Battlefield is a series of first-person shooter video games that started out on Microsoft in 2002.

In a short time, the game gained massive popularity and has been played by more than 50 million players worldwide across 11 games and 12 expansion packs.

Battlefield is coming with another major update this year. Inspired by a modern setting while taking cues from Battlefield 3, the new Battlefield 6 update has all the exciting features.

We know that Battlefield’s core formula is unlikely to change, but we expect improved weapons, vehicles, and gadgets. Here, we’ve rounded up everything we know about the next Battlefield game so that you can stay on top of things. 

Release

EA Sports and DICE have been very cautious and slow in revealing the release date. They’ve promised fans that Battlefield 6 is in the making and will be released by late 2020 or early 2021 to the latest.  

EA CEO Andrew Wilson said that Battlefield is “progressing very, very well and it’ll blow people’s minds.”

New Map

It’s rumored that Battlefield update has a modern setting.

The maps are all-new. Al Marj Encampment, set in Libya, is a battlefield that portrays a U.S. assault on a North African city occupied by German troops. It’s an infantry-only map, where you can expect both close-quarter fights and ranged combat depending on where you are on the battlefield.

There’s also the German HQ, which will be of particular interest in Breakthrough mode, where the final sector is to be attacked or defended. Breakthrough plays great on Al Marj Encampment, and we hope you’ll experience as many nail-biting endgames as we’ve done in playtests.

New Weapons and Gadgets

As you charge through these new maps, you’ll enjoy a range of new arsenals that will make your squad even more versatile and prepared for any combat situation. Light it up with the Doppel-Schuss flare gun or the Pistol Flamethrower, and deploy with new weapons like the M3 Infrared, the Welrod, and much more iconic gear. 

The list of new weapons and gadgets available for this version includes:

  • Sjögren Shotgun (Support)
  • Chauchat (Support) 
  • M3 Infrared (Recon)
  • K31 (Recon)
  • Welgun (Medic)
  • M1941 Johnson (Assault)
  • PPK/PPK Suppressed (all classes)
  • M1911 Suppressed (all classes)
  • Welrod (all classes)

Three new grenades are also making their way in the game. 

  • Firecracker Grenade (all classes)
  • Demolition Grenade (all classes)
  • Type 99 Mine (all classes)

New Vehicles

What is an update without improved vehicles? 

Here’s a list of armored vehicles in Battlefield:

  • A-20 bomber (U.S. Faction)
  • P-70 Night Fighter (U.S. Faction)
  • P-51D fighter plane (U.S. Faction)
  • P-51K fighter plane (U.S. Faction)
  • M8 Greyhound (U.S. Faction)
  • Puma Armored Car (German Faction)

Battlefield 6 is likely to be an envelope-pusher in terms of graphics, and indeed in the realm of sound design too.
