Tom Henderson, the same industry insider who shared details on Battlefield VI’s “revolutionary” campaign mode and setting last month, has returned with new info regarding the latest installment of EA and DICE’s hit FPS franchise. According to Henderson, Battlefield VI’s reveal trailer will show off one of the game’s 128-player multiplayer maps, which was purportedly inspired by Wake Island—a coral atoll that’s described as one of the most isolated islands in the world. The trailer will also supposedly demonstrate the game’s new dynamic weather system by pitching combatants in a “literal storm” and/or tornado, as well as feature multiple Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey aircraft to give players a sense of scale. An artist’s rendition of the map can be seen below.

Multiplayer will feature bigger and better battles and is described as “Battlefield ¾ on steroids”, with a Battle Royale also on the way at some stage. The Battle Royale experience will be completely disconnected from the Firestorm name and instead will adopt a new name, probably for obvious reasons. Players will still be able to play as the 4 different types of soldiers, but instead of just having unique gadgets, players will also have different “abilities”, which are similar to Call of Duty perks. For example a Scout soldier might have silent footsteps, whereas an Assault soldier might be able to sprint for a longer duration.
