The next two updates of Battlefield 2042 Forget Voice Chat

With its rocky launch just five days ago, Battlefield 2042The developers have been busy fixing the issues, with two more massive game-changing updates. Titled Update 2 and Update 3, the first is expected on November 25, while the second is scheduled for early December. While the patches both address issues like performance, server stability, and balance, neither adds one of the game’s most missed features: voice chat.

Battlefield 2042Update 2 includes a fix for the bug that prevents players from spawning with the gear they choose, as well as some major changes to the weapon spread. Some of the game’s assault rifles have an incredibly high spread that prevents players from firing accurately within the weapon’s range. To address that issue, the game’s weapon spread while zooming and moving is reduced, and accuracy while zooming and stationery has been increased. Likewise, the LCAA Hovercraft and MD540 Nightbird receive some nerfs that should eventually balance out both vehicles.

Update 3, on the other hand, is much larger and includes a series of quality-of-life changes. For example, the game will have new markers to make it easier to find newly unlocked items and streamline the UI for managing weapon attachments. Players will be given weekly missions when this patch launches, which will give them a series of challenges that they can complete with a cosmetic reward. The long list provided by the game’s developers in a blog post is just part of what will be added when Update 3 launches in December.

While Battlefield 2042The upcoming updates include some much-needed features, but the game still lacks some Battlefield pillars. Aside from in-game voice chat, which was not included at launch, players have been asking for more “legacy features” such as a scoreboard at the end of the game and a server browser. According to the post, the game’s developers are “carefully evaluating your desire to see legacy features again.”
