Battlefield 2042 launched in late 2021 and suffice it to say that neither EA nor DICE expected the game to run as badly as it has so far. The latest installment in the Battlefield series was one of the lowest rated games of the year. Over there with games like eFootball, a game that was so poorly received, Konami decided its official launch was actually last week as it rolled out a major update for the game.

Speaking of updates, Battlefield 2042 will get one next week. DICE Community Manager Kevin Johnson has shared some of the fixes and tweaks coming to the game via the 4.0 update and while the full patch notes won’t be out for a few days, they did reveal some of the things that loyal and faithful players must watch. send to.

The update will apparently include over 400 fixes, so the information Johnson has revealed so far is just the tip of the iceberg. Some of the changes detailed by the community manager include balancing vehicle warfare, character updates including Rao and Paik, and ribbons will be changed to allow for easier unlocking in other modes, like Rush. Attachments will also be getting an overhaul in an effort to make them more impactful on your loadout.

These changes can’t come soon enough for Battlefield when it comes to player counts, things are going from bad to worse. The first red flag came when its concurrent count fell below Battlefield 5 on Steam and then continued to drop to the point of being on par with Battlefield 1. The latest update revealed that this week the number of Battlefield 2042 players dropped into triple digits for the first time.

Although EA has already admitted that the game was a failure, DICE continues to try to make something out of Battlefield 2042. Updates are coming and hopefully next week will be the one that greatly improves the game and brings back some inactive players. It’s a game most people would have paid a lot of money for after all, which probably means people will be willing to give it a second and maybe even a third chance, the opportunities that a free game wouldn’t be as likely to get.
