This Indian town features as a map in the new Battlefield 2042 game

Electronic Arts (EA) and DICE have released the new Battlefield 2042 trailer. It reveals that one of the maps is based on a small town in Gujarat, India. The official website has revealed some details about the new maps coming to the Battlefield V successor. It includes a map named Discarded, which is set in Alang. The census town in Bhavnagar is known as the world’s largest ship graveyard. The world’s longest ship, Seawise Giant, was sailed and demolished here in 2009, according to a Wikipedia description.

The Discarded map seems to have replicated this and incorporated it into the game. A screenshot uploaded on the official website shows a dismantled ship. “Along a strategic section of India’s west coast, colossal ships stranded on the beach are being stripped for parts. Fight among the hulls of these behemoths while adapting to deadly storms,” the description reads.

Other maps include Orbital, Hourglass, Kaleidoscope, Manifest, Breakaway, and Renewal. Battlefield 2042 is set to launch later this year and will also have free and paid seasonal battle passes. The company has also been working to create a mobile version of the game, which will likely take on titles like PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty: Mobile and more. The console and PC versions of the game will also have 128 player battle royales.
