Today, during Microsoft E3's showcase, we saw gameplay from the recently-announced Battlefield 2042. While the trailer was light on overall specifics, it did give ample looks at the overall chaos players can expect from the online-only military shooter – including a deadly tornado that ravages the map. 

Most of the trailer was set on a desert-based city map, and featured a lot of the over-the-top gameplay moments first showcased in the game's reveal trailer a few days ago – only this time we saw these moments in actual gameplay. Included with the expected footage of gunplay and firefights was a glimpse at the nature-based setpieces, the ability to wingsuit around the map for quick getaways, and so, so many explosions. 

You can check out the full gameplay reveal below:
