What's New in Battlefield 2042 Season 5: New Dawn?

You'll find plenty of new additions to New Dawn when you start the game. One of the biggest additions comes in the form of the new map Reclaimed. You'll also be able to wield new weapons including the XCE BAR, GEW-46 and BFP.50 as well as use new grenades and gadgets.

The Battle Pass will include new cosmetics for just about everything ranging from Specialists, weapons, and vehicles. You'll also see weapon attachments and general quality-of-life updates to make the game run smoother.

While later on, you'll see additions to Vault Weapon attachments, a rework to the Hourglass map, and Squad Orders.

With Season 5: New Dawn nearly here, DICE is also working on Season 6. It seems a bit early to discuss what's coming later in the game, but rest assured, Battlefield 2042 will continue after the fifth season.
