EA Will Tell Battlefield 2042's Story Through Apex-Style Specialist Stories

Kimble "Irish" Graves joins the Battlefield 2042 roster of playable Specialists, EA announced in a new video dedicated to telling his story.

Irish's video isn't a one-of either. Battlefield 2042 won't contain the game's full story, EA confirmed, because it's being told in part through Specialist Stories.

"The narrative will continue to evolve over time as more Specialists join the conflict, each with their own story to tell, and pull players deeper into the world and lore of Battlefield 2042," EA said in a statement (thanks Polygon).

These videos, not unlike Respawn's Apex Legend videos, explore Battlefield's lore in a way the game couldn't - especially since it won't have a traditional campaign.

In this case, it confirms Battlefield 4's ending, proving that Irish survived (obviously, since he stars in the video) and that Huang “Hannah” Shuyi did not.

Beyond that, the Irish Battlefield 2042 video also introduces Oz, a character with different ideas for what the No-Pats' future should look like.

It's not certain if Specialist Stories will continue after Battlefield 2042 releases on October 22, but EA promised several more focused on the remaining five Specialists in the lead-up to launch.
