EA Games has lifted the lid today on Battlefield 6, also known as Battlefield 2042, with an online live stream being used to release the game's first proper reveal trailer.


This is an interesting time for EA to drop this reveal, considering that the E3 2021 schedule kicks off on Saturday and there's a special EA Play event not long after the conference.

Battlefield 6 is, of course, the sixth mainline entry in EA's shooter series, which will enter the marketplace with fierce competition from the immensely popular free games Call of Duty: Warzone and Fortnite.

You might be wondering how to watch the Battlefield 6 reveal event online today, and if that's the case, you've come to the right place to check it out for yourself.
