Battlefield 2042 short "Exodus" brings back character from BF4
By Aron Gerencser August 14, 2021
Battlefield 2042 may be a multiplayer only game with no single player element, but it definitely isn't without a story.
The upcoming shooter is an indirect sequel of Battlefield 4.
Exodus, a nine minute short film, reveals that Irish from Battlefield 4 survived the events of that game.
This puts 2042 into the same continuity as Battlefield 3 and 4, and based on the naming similarities we predict that it's in continuity with Battlefield 2142 as well.
The short film depicts what seems to be the direct inciting cause of the renewed war between the USA and Russia.
A secret orbital weapons platform deployed by the USA malfunctions and crashes in Doha.
The mere existence of such a superweapon could reignite the war between the two countries.
An unseen character called Oz, another no-pat, deliberately wants to spark that war in order to force the world to "recognize" the no-pats.
Pakowski, another returning character from Battlefield 4, is incarcerated on the ship, but he ultimately joins the battle on Irish's side.
The only way Irish can prevent a new global war is to go and retrieve the superweapon himself, alongside any no-pat mercenary willing to help.
Battlefield 2042 will launch on the 22nd of October, but a bunch of details from the current technical test have already leaked.
