Battlefield 2042’s big 4.0 update will include ‘400+ fixes and improvements’
“Key bits” shared ahead of next week’s release
DICE has confirmed plans to release a massive Battlefield 2042 update next week.
Battlefield 2042 Update 4.0 will include over 400 individual bug fixes and quality of life improvements, according to EA DICE community manager Kevin Johnson.
Ahead of the publication of the official patch notes next week, Johnson shared some of the “key bits” set to be included in the update.
Specialists Rao and Paik will have their traits updated, while Sundance’s grenade belt will receive some fixes to allow for better close-range anti-armour grenade target acquisition.
The update will make Ribbons easier to unlock across modes such as Rush, while XP for support actions and teamplay have also been tweaked to promote teamwork.
Fixes for an ADS bug when exiting a vehicle and reviving near obstacles are also included.
And attachments will be overhauled “with a focus on ensuring they feel unique and have an impact on your loadout choice and gunplay”.
DICE previously said that a Battlefield 2042 update in April would include voice chat, a feature that was surprisingly absent from the game at launch.
And in a recent blog post, the studio outlined how it’s changing its approach to Battlefield 2042 map design following the game’s disappointing launch.
Battlefield 2042‘s concurrent player count on Steam reportedly fell below 1,000 for the first time on April 11.
