Unwanted Father Winter in Battlfield 2042
Looks like DICE can do nothing right with Battlefield 2042: Now the community is up in arms over the Father Winter skin, bemoaning the Fortnite-like tone of the game.
Players apparently expected a sombre meditation on the nature of war, but got quippy one-liners that trivialize warfare instead. They clearly missed the part in the trailer where a pilot ejects from a fighter jet during a dogfight and shoots down his quarry with a shoulder-mounted missile launcher while in free fall.
- Battlefield 2042 is rumoured to have made 4.23M in its first week
- The playerbase has dropped by 70% since launch
- Farming Simulator 22 has more active users on Steam
- EA creating Battlefield Universe, Vince Zampella at the helm
Big bugs: No matter the tone of Battlefield 2042, DICE is still working to fix basic design problems like the aiming system, which makes particularly sniper rifles pretty much worthless.
Disconnect: The latest set of cosmetic items demonstrate the vast gulf between the expectations of the players and the product DICE is making for them. Hopefully, the two can eventually meet in the middle.
