Somehow there’s never been a Battlefield map set in Sweden until now

  • November 17, 2022

Battlefield 2042’s third season starts on November 22 and will bring with it the usual new stuff: a new specialist, new guns, and a new map. I was mildly surprised to learn that the map, called Spearhead, will be the first official Battlefield map set in Sweden, where lead Battlefield developer DICE is based.

Looking back, I guess none of the past Battlefield conflicts had a great reason to venture into Sweden. The country was ostensibly neutral during WW1 and WW2, and Battlefield’s fictional modern conflicts have centered on the US, China, and Russia. There’s no Sweden vs Canada subplot or anything.
