This feedback comes from multiple people and dates back a few months ago until the latest tests going on (now) - It could be the "spawn" rates of the tornadoes are turned up for testing and I'm assuming they will be adjusted accordingly before release.— Tom Henderson (@_Tom_Henderson_) July 13, 2021
While Henderson has proven reliable in the past, readers are advised to take this all with a grain of salt, for the time being. Henderson says this feedback comes from multiple sources, but it's possible this could change before October. Also, Henderson's theory that tornado spawn rates might have been turned up seems entirely possible, specifically for testing purposes.
If pulled off, tornadoes in the game could make for an interesting new addition. The weather pattern will apparently bring heavy devastation, and will be difficult for players to predict. Players will also be able to use tornadoes to their advantage, but it's easy to see how it could still prove frustrating if spawn rates are high. That might make the new feature into a burden that prevents players from enjoying the classic gameplay. Thankfully, fans will be able to see how tornadoes play out in Battlefield 2042 in just a few short months!
Battlefield 2042 will release October 22nd on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
