DICE reveals Battlefield 2042’s road ahead
Battlefield 2042 has had a tumultuous launch so far, and judging by the latest update from DICE the developers are seemingly reluctant to diverge from its plan in order to meet player expectations.
“We’re carefully evaluating your desire to see legacy features return,” claims DICE, most likely referring to the complete lack of scoreboard, server browsing, and voice chat – all of which are traditional staples of the series.
- A list of missing features compiled by a player
- Players are not impressed with the Fortnite-like tone
- Sniper rifles are better against armored vehicles than anti-tank weapons
- Bullet spread system makes headshots essentially useless
- Over 43,000 negative reviews on Steam
Updates: The second update is launching today, and the third is expected in early December. There might be one more update before the year's end, and the Season 1 content will be released early next year.
Wish list: DICE's current priorities are performance, server stability, gunplay, and game balance as well as progress systems for solo, co-op, and custom Battlefield Portal games.
