These rather ambiguous indications were later accidentally confirmed by DICE itself. The description of an official YouTube video in China apparently contained detailed information about the content of Season 3.

What can we expect in Season 3?

New weapons, vehicles and specialists

The well-known and reliable data miner Temporyal summarizes the findings from the video description on Twitter. The third season is called Escalation and contains the following content:

  • New Weapons: Two new weapons, the NVK-S22 Shotgun and the Rorsch MK-4 Railgun. Battlefield veterans will pay particular attention to the second weapon: in Battlefield 4 you could already use a predecessor model of this experimental weapon in the DLC Final Stand. With its particularly high projectile velocity, it was mainly used at longer distances.

This is what the railgun looked like in Battlefield 4, there is no photo of the successor model yet.

  • New tank: A new vehicle will be available with the EMKV90 Tor tank. This is also equipped with a state-of-the-art railgun, which is probably much more powerful than the infantry model.
  • New specialist: This one is probably called Rasheed Zain and has a special gadget, the XM370A Airburst. This is probably similar to Battlefield 4’s XM25 grenade launcher, which allowed you to attack hidden enemies. In addition, Rasheed should recover health faster after a kill.
  • New map: Also details about the new map, spearhead was able to excavate Temporyal. Here it would go to a weapons factory in the freezing north of Sweden:

Previously known under its working title “lightsout”, this map features a remote arms factory operated by Nordvik in 🇸🇪 Lappland (Sweden).
