These Battlefield 6 leaks are getting out of hand. Reports suggest that EA and DICE will finally share a first look at the ambitious-sounding shooter next month ahead of its Autumn release date, but a prominent leaker appears to already know exactly what the game's debut trailer will entail.
I'm sure this goes without saying, but if you really want to watch the Battlefield 6 trailer completely unspoiled in May, then please don't read any further. Got that? Cracking.
Those of you that do want to know probably won't be surprised that prolific Battlefield insider Tom Henderson is the man behind this latest leak. Henderson has been provided a steady drip of info on the upcoming game for months now, but has recently kicked things up a gear. Late last month he dropped a ton of information on the in-development shooter. Not long before that, Henderson was suspended from Twitter and had all Battlefield 6 related videos taken down from his YouTube channel - usually a sign that leaks are at least halfway accurate.
This time, Henderson has put his artistic skills on display and provided sketches that offer an alleged first-look at Battlefield 6's debut trailer. As you can see below, the rough sketch shows a storm rolling in across a tropical island. We can see a city in the background, planes over head, and a couple of stationary rockets.
He previously claimed that the game's first trailer would be pretty light on gameplay, but his sketch does seem to suggest that it'll tease at least one important new gameplay feature: extreme weather conditions and natural disasters.
Pointing to the storm/tornado looming in the background of the sketch, Henderson clarified that it wasn't the kind of cloud gamers have come to associate with battle royales. He said that it was a "literal storm", and directed readers to one of his earlier tweets for more information.
A few weeks ago Henderson tweeted out that "in Battlefield, explosions are not the only thing that can damage and topple buildings. Mother nature can do a whole lot more". He then shared images of a tsunami, a volcano, an earthquake, and a tornado. The implication, of course, is that natural disasters and extreme weather will do a ton of damage to maps in the upcoming game.
Take this with the usual pinch of salt for now. Henderson has made a ton of claims over the last few months, but we won't know for sure how much of it is true until we see the Battlefield 6 trailer for ourselves next month. Stay tuned.
