Battlefield 2042 released in a pretty messy state (our review here) and although DICE rolled out a patch ahead of the game’s worldwide launch, it wasn’t enough to fix numerous problems that are plaguing the experience. The studio has promised that it’ll be rolling out two updates within the next 30 days, and has outlined some of the most pressing issues it plans to address, including missing loadouts, vehicle balancing, and soldiers not reviving.
Get the details below.
- We’re confident that we’ve identified the cause of the issue that was preventing you from always getting off a revive, particularly when a player is in close proximity to nearby geometry. A fix for this is on the way. Separately, we’re closing in on a possible server side fix for players who in rare circumstances find themselves unable to respawn. If that server side fix doesn’t stick, we already have a further solution lined up for our upcoming update.
- We temporarily removed this whilst we could evaluate the best way to keep it balanced, and fun. That work is now complete and we’ll be looking to re-enable this alongside the next update.
- A rare issue that could sometimes cause a data call to fail on our end now has a fix developed, and is presently in testing. We’re keen to roll this one out to you all and make sure that you don’t have that frustration of needing to reconnect to a server.
- The LCAA Hovercraft will be re-equipped with lighter armor, lowering its health, and we’re tuning down some of its weaponry The MD540 Nightbird will have similar tuning done on it’s weaponry too We’re keeping a close eye on early balance for future changes.
We’ll update our readers when the patch is live.
