Champ de bataille 2042 1

It was a failure two years ago, but now it’s back from the dead

The Battlefield franchise is not at its best. The release of Battlefield 2042 in 2021 ended up burying it in a very deep hole… but there is still hope. Electronic Arts has continued to invest in the title with updates and new seasons of content.

Season 6, Dark Creations, arrived ten days ago and brought with him a lot of new things. Most notable was the censored map, which features the beloved Operation Locker and Metro style of previous installments. We are talking about a closed lane map with very marked lanes.

Taking advantage of this launch, EA announced a free access weekend (from October 12 to 16) and it was a great success because the video game literally came to life. It managed to attract just over 103,000 concurrent players, according to SteamDB. Until now, the numbers did not exceed 10,000 to 14,000 players.

The normal tendency would be to think that the figure fell to initial levels as the week progressed, but nothing could be further from the truth. At the time of writing this article (2:00 p.m.), Battleground 2042 It has 99,274 players over the last 24 hours and 69,163 simultaneous players. And that’s just Steam’s numbers. We do not know if it can be maintained, but we are indeed facing a significant revitalization.
