Clownfield 2042 Is A Hilarious Battlefield 2042 Parody
Battlefield 2042 has had it rough. In fact, no - Battlefield 2042 players have had it rough. The game is, by all accounts, a pretty overwhelming disappointment.
The 2021 title has failed to follow through on some of its biggest promises, not bringing to the table what fans want from a Battlefield title and exemplifying the modern "launch broken, fix later" structure that many AAA developers have adopted.
EA and DICE are in hot water (more than usual, would you believe), and fans aren't happy with the product they paid incredible sums for. And it's clear that the botched launch has become something of a joke already, as fan games poking fun at 2042 are already making their way onto the market.
What Does The Battlefield 2042 Parody Game Look Like?
One developer has taken its disdain for Battlefield 2042 to new heights, as they have created Clownfield 2042 - a game that exists entirely to take the mick out of the massive failure of the game's launch.
Riverside Sports' new game has launched on Steam, a janky FPS that follows a "unique soldier, equipped with six weapons that has to fight enemy and win the front".
The Steam page reveals the game's narrative - "After 2022 cryptocrash caused by NFTs, majority of nations collapsed and a union of "No-Clowns" has been formed. You are one of them, arm up and get ready for war."
Clownfield 2042 Description Roasts Battlefield
The description of the game on Steam continues to tear into EA and DICE, even though an outing with the sole purpose of tearing Battlefield apart was probably enough by itself. Impressively, Clownfield 2042's Steam reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Sorry, Battlefield.
The bio includes details of the "AI System [Pretty basic but good enough for the moment]", and the fact that the game contains "bugs, per usual, plenty of bugs. We'll let you enjoy them as is; and instead of fixing them, we'll just release some new skins." Oof.
Clownfield 2042 is the perfect example of player exhaustion with the shooter franchise and goes to show that fans will go to great lengths just to roast poor video game production. In many ways, Clownfield is better than Battlefield, and for that reason alone, EA and DICE should be immensely embarrassed.
