Today, EA DICE studio has published a message in the blog, which focuses on the ongoing work on Battlefield 2042, which last week was released around the world in less than ideal condition. Along with the server-side changes for stability, the studio will release at least two bug fixes by 2022, with one more tentatively scheduled to roll out before the holidays.
The first of these planned updates will hit the game on Thursday, November 24, and will target aspects such as accuracy, non-working soldier resurrections, powerful vehicles (hovercraft and Nightbird), respawn block bug, UAV-1 interaction in Bad Company 2 Portal and a few more destinations.
The next update is great. Released in early December, it will contain a huge number of bug fixes and quality of life improvements. DICE has posted a snapshot of the changes included on their blog here , which contains hundreds of fixes and improvements aimed at the UI, matchmaking, progress, map glitches, graphics issues, all major game modes, and more.
Some of the highlights include showing nearby players with resuscitation projectiles when knocked down, icons over players’ heads with extra ammo or health kits, weapon attachment customization improvements, and Rush mode for 2042 maps through the portal.
Performance improvements and fixes for inconsistencies between PCs and consoles are also being developed internally. DICE also said it is “scrutinizing” community requests to bring back legacy features such as the traditional scoreboard, server browser and voice chat. More information on these topics will be provided later.
While the exact number of players is not reported, the studio said there are already millions of players in Battlefield 2042, nearly double the number of Battlefield V in 2018. A detailed description of the upcoming season 1 will be published in early 2022.
