DICE continues to update Battlefield 2042 though, and it should be because the game is only 5 months old. Battlefield 2042 Community Manager Kevin Johnson tweeted a new upcoming 4.0 update for the game. The update brings over 400 changes including
The Specialist, Rao and Paik, will get updated traits. Sundance is making some fixes to the grenade belt with better near armour-piercing target acquisition. Ribbons are also getting some tweaks allowing for easier unlocking in game modes like Rush. XP for Support Actions and Team Play gets some balance to ensure “teamwork remains king,” he said.
The update also shows some love for vehicles, vehicular warfare gets some balance, especially the Bolte, “to make sure the infantry/vehicle counter game still has some bite to it,” says Johnson. . Does this mean the vehicles in the game are nerfed? We will have to wait and see.
Weapon attachments are overhauled in this 4.0 update, “with a focus on ensuring they feel unique and impact your loadout choice and shooter,” Johnson maintains. The full changelog is expected to be released with the update next week, as the official release date has not been announced.
Although the 4.0 update is welcome, the game itself is almost dead in the space of 5 months since its launch. Even with cross-platform play enabled, finding an active session easily takes 15-30 minutes on PS5, sometimes even longer, while custom servers are available, the number is far lower than in Battlefield 4 today. A game released in 2013.
We hope the DICE devs listen to players and include the must-haves
