'Battlefield 2042' Promises to Fix Launch Issues With Two Big Updates

Despite launching less than a week ago, Battlefield 2042 has quickly become one of the worst-rated games on Steam, amassing almost 30,000 negative reviews in the span of just days. Now, hearing player feedback, EA and DICE have promised to bring a series of fixes to the game through two major updates coming in the near future.

Scheduled for tomorrow, the second update to the game will introduce a series of important tweaks to existing gameplay. A new respawn protection system will fix the bug where downed players have stayed in that state for too long, while revives have been optimized so you won’t suffer from being too close to walls or objects. Balancing mechanisms will be introduced for both the LCAA Hovercraft as well as the MD540 Nightbird, and UAV-1 will also be adjusted in Portal mode. Most importantly, weapon bullet spreads will also be tweaked to reduce dispersion and increase consistency. A third update will follow shortly and bring a series of fixes to everything from user interface and matchmaking systems to map changes and accuracy improvements for weapons.

“We couldn’t be more passionate about this game and will be supporting and evolving it for years to come,” reads a statement from the developer. “The teams across the globe are working 24/7 to evolve and deliver improvements to the game.”

For those playing, the second major update will arrive on November 25, followed by the third in early December.
