Players who were looking forward to Battlefield 2042 Season One will now have to wait a while as it gets delayed to early summer.
DICE has made the decision to push back the release of Season One due to the necessary updates for the game. A new update was supposed to be coming in early March 2022, but they had to delay it.
Here are the features they are planning to add to the game as soon as possible via EA:
SCOREBOARD – In our next update, we’ll be adding a refreshed in-round Scoreboard alongside further changes we’ve worked on since the holidays. This will be an ongoing evolution from what was shown in the work in progress we shared recently. We have heard your feedback around including two tables and separating your own team versus the enemy, and are working on incorporating that for the release. K/D scoring and End of Round reporting will also be coming in a future update.
ALL PLATFORM VOICE COMMUNICATION – The arrival of voice communication (VOIP) is just the start of the improvements we’re bringing to enhance team play and communications.
PLAYER PROFILE – Giving you a better overview of your career on the battlefield and how far you have to go for your next unlock.
DICE also plans to incorporate a clearer and tighter squad loop, a refined ping, system, and improved reward loop when players and their squad play the objective. Improvements on gunplay will be added as well and will be continuous.
For Portal, the developers plan to expand the tools, modes, and tweak player experience gains. The Specialists are now being analyzed are being worked on.
Players who have purchased the Year 1 Pass as part of the Gold and Ultimate Editions will now have to wait for a while. They will get compensation though, an exclusive bundle that contains a Specialist skin, weapon and vehicle skins, a melee weapon and Player Card in the next update.
Battlefield 2042 is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. Season One will now be released in early summer.
