The full reveal of Season 3 is just around the corner with another new Specialist, a new map in a location close to those at DICE, a fresh Battle Pass, additional Portal content, as well as a new hardware tech, events, experiences, and more.

Over 15 maps will be available, including 4 reworked battlefields from 2042’s launch. Additionally, more than 100 weapons and gadgets, and 40+ powerful vehicles can be found and utilized across six unique game modes.
