    Battlefield 2042: The Arkangel Directive Event Announced

    EA has announced that a new in-game Seasonal Event called the Arkangel Directive will be arriving for Battlefield 2024. The event will be running for 2 weeks starting from Tuesday, 11 July at 5 am PT through Tuesday, 25 July at 5 am.

    Take Control

    Under the Ascension satellite network, the elite Arkangel Legion can break any deadlock. In Control, take and hold rotating objectives to upload tactical telemetry. Collect the most telemetry to command the region, and earn Ascension Points to purchase vehicles.

    Execute the Directive. Take Control.

    Control is played as 24v24 across Reclaimed, Orbital, Valparaiso and your goal is to collect telemetry data to upload to the Arkangel Satellite.


    Claim satellites – Unsynced satellites around the map will align with the sensors your squad carries. Get in range of an active satellite to claim it for your side and begin the sync. Multiple control points (objectives) may become available at once, and hostiles can try and stake their own claim at any time.

    Sync telemetry – Guarding your control points is key. Defend your occupied satellites until telemetry has finished uploading. When each round of uploads is complete, another free satellite will appear. The more telemetry you sync, the better your score.

    Earn combat vehicles – Arkangel will reward high performers in combat with Ascension Points. Spend these points to call-in vehicle hot drops and change the tide of battle. The more you save, the more powerful vehicles you can request.

    As the battle progresses, less and less objectives will be introduced leading you to clash with the opposing team in a final epic battle in the centre of the map. It’s all about control.
