the backstory of Tom Henderson

The release of Battlefield 2042 is fast approaching, with fans who have already had the opportunity to try it thanks to the Beta Multiplayer. Many, however, were not convinced by the work done by EA DICE, to the point that players have asked for the postponement of Battlefield 2042 so that the authors can perfect the work.

Community skepticisms aside, various details and background continue to emerge on the net on the new episode of the long-running war series by Electronic Arts, which apparently was originally conceived in a very different way than what has been seen so far. According to insider Tom Henderson, in fact, in the initial plans of the American giant Battlefield 2042 it should have been a battle royale strongly inspired by Apex Legends, another successful EA title.

“The theory that Battlefield 2042 started out as a battle royale is true, although I don’t know for sure at what point in development it was transformed into a more traditional Battlefield,” Henderson writes on Twitter, adding that “it would have taken its cue from COD Warzone,” but Apex Legends would have been the biggest inspiration. ” The leaker does not know for sure at what point in development EA would have decided to back down by abandoning the idea, focusing instead on different game modes: among these the multiplayer mode Hazard Zone of Battlefield 2042, which will be shown to the public on October 14. 2021 at 17:00 Italian.

Finally, remember that Battlefield 2042 will be released on November 19, 2021 on PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One.
