Battlefield 2042 players have found an Easter Egg from EA’s Mirror’s Edge hidden in the game’s new map.
As reported by Eurogamer, Battlefield 2042’s Season 4 update added the Flashpoint map and with it a throwback to one of developer DICE’s previous projects. Most known for its fast-paced parkour around vertigo-inducing environments, the Mirror’s Edge reference can naturally be found at the top of a very tall object.
By flying to the top of a crane, players can find the sneakers worn by protagonist Faith in the Mirror’s Edge games. As mentioned previously, however, this is likely just a fun reference to DICE’s older games rather than an indication that more Mirror’s Edge content is coming.

A series revival was attempted in 2016 with Mirror’s Edge Catalyst, though it didn’t gain much traction. While said the original 2008 title was “a solid first attempt at a new type of game”, we said of Catalyst that “Mirror’s Edge’s return shines in some regards, but is ultimately a disappointment”.
Alongside the Easter Egg and new map, Battlefield 2042’s Season 4 added new hardware and a recon specialist when it launched on February 28.
In our 7/10 review, said: “Its current batch of modes is overstuffed with players and utter chaos, though Hazard Zone scales things down in an interesting, high-stakes way.”
