Battlefield 2042 Season 3 will feature a heal of new goodies to sink your teeth into, including a new Specialist, a fresh Battle Pass, additional hardware, a new event and more, plus developer Ripple Effect Studios is also going to implement fixes and quality of life improvements with future updates.
Elsewhere, the development team are tweaking the Assault, Engineer, Support and Recon classes, while Battlefield: Bad Company 2’s XM8 LMG is being added to the game alongside the A-91 from Battlefield 3.
The Battlefield Briefing post commented:
Using the feedback that you’ve shared, we’ve also switched Irish into the Support role, with Crawford swapping in as an Engineer. Irish will therefore take Crawfords current trait, reviving downed teammates with additional gadget ammunition, and we’ll be developing a new trait for Crawford that will allow him to better specialize as an Engineer.
Ice and Snow shaders have also been reworked, helping to bring a new visual look to the map, and we’re excited to see you get hands on with this one in 2023. Our work to bring map improvements will continue next year beyond these two changes and we’re excited to show you what we’re doing next.
