Battlefield 2042 Launches Unexpected Dead Space Crossover

Jul 04, 2024 9:05 AM

Battlefield 2042 is ending its post-launch content drops with Season 7, and as a final surprise, EA/DICE announced a Dead Space crossover event. Running from July 9 to 16, this limited-time event is intriguing, considering the Dead Space remake launched more than a year ago with mixed commercial success despite positive reviews. The event will recycle zombie-like enemies from Season 6, adding a horde-like mode reminiscent of classic co-op shooters. Players can earn various rewards including a weapon charm, skin, tag, and player background, and can purchase a Dead Space-themed bundle for 2200 BFC, which is around $20.

What rewards can players earn in the Battlefield 2042 Dead Space crossover event?n

Players participating in the Battlefield 2042 Dead Space event can earn a weapon charm, a skin, a tag, and a player background. Additionally, a Dead Space-themed bundle is available for purchase.

The Dead Space series began as a major name in survival horror, debuting in 2008. Despite critical acclaim, the franchise faced commercial struggles, leading to various cancellations and relaunch attempts. The latest entry, the 2023 remake, was seen as a beacon of hope for long-time fans, though it didn't achieve the expected commercial success. Battlefield 2042, on the other hand, had a rocky start but saw significant improvements post-launch, extending its lifecycle beyond initial expectations.
