EA is currently sailing the good ship Battlefield 2042 through some decidedly choppy waters, and has detailed what fixes are coming from the next update for the trouble first-person shooter.
If can you haven’t been keeping up with Battlefield 2042, the near-futuristic shooter launch with more than a few teething issues, and is now one of the worst-rated games on Steam. However, EA is looking to polish things up as soon as possible, and the next slew of update will target soldier review, missing loadouts, and more.
- 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.
Battlefield 2042 went on general release on November 19, 2021 for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One, with Early Access customers receiving the game on November 12.
