EA/DICE has announced a new limited-time Battlefield 2042 event called The Battle of Nordvik, set to run December 20 – January 10. The multiplayer game event is broken down into three separate weeks, each with its own phase of a pivotal conflict between the Western Forces’ Nordvik Control Corps and the Black Storm shadow ops regiment.
Each week during the event will feature a distinct phase of the battle at Nordvik, the robotics and weapons manufacturing facility found on Season 3’s new map, Spearhead. The first phase, which runs December 20 – 27, is the assault on Nordvik. It’s 32v32 conquest assault with no air vehicles available.
Week two, from December 27 – January 2, is the defence of Nordvik. This 16v16 mode begins as a spin on Conquest, with attackers rushing to secure objectives on their way to the frontline. If they manage to break through enemy lines, the match transitions to a rush mode, in which the attackers have to capture M-COMs scattered throughout the Nordvik factory.
The final phase is the Liberation of Nordvik, and it runs January 3 – 10. For this round of the battle, it’s 128-player all-out war, with faster redeploy times, faster movement speed, and faster vehicle call-ins. It’s going to be chaos.
Each phase also includes exclusive cosmetics to earn by completing weekly challenges and earning ribbons. You can see the full list of rewards over at the official site.
There’s more to come in Season 3, and EA/DICE has given us a peek at what’s on the horizon for the coming year in Battlefield 2042.
