Through your feedback, we identified several focus areas for our launch maps where our quality standards could be improved through Cover, Intensity, Line of Sight, Pathing and Traversal changes. As a result, we have been reworking our launch maps to ensure their gameplay is updated to these revised standards of quality. Reworking maps takes time, and Kaleidoscope is the first map for which we have completed this rework. You can play the improved version in this game update. What’s changed? We have revised the playspace to add more cover, creating new flag positions, and improved the flow across the whole map. Cover has been added not only with the placement of new assets, but also in the raising of terrain to help break sightlines and let infantry move more purposefully around the map. Most importantly, these new assets ...Singleplayer Battlefield game announced in the modern style: with a job postingJul 5, 2022 - PC GamerLast December, we heard that a new Seattle studio headed by Halo trilogy art director Marcus Lehto will be exploring "narrative, storytelling, and character development" in the Battlefield series.

Battlefield Briefing - Welcome to Zero HourJun 10, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsHey folks! With Season One now out and available to play, I sat down with Senior Producer Ryan McArthur, and Producers Nika Bender, and Alexia Christofi to share some insight into the work we’ve done to bring this new update to life. We streamed this live over on the Battlefield Twitch Channel, but in case you missed it, you can watch it back below: What’s new in Season 1? New Map: Exposure Head to the Canadian Rockies and traverse the extreme vertical terrain. Ground-to-air combat as well as tight infantry fights await. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/40697820/45b9487a4ac180203b742d9422c183c8a8fe972d.png Black Ridge On this part of the map, you and your squad need to seize control of a contested military base. Once you’ve secured the area, head to the elevators and move down to capture the interiors. Mission Operations This area consists of two sub-sections, the tunnel and the server room. The tunnel holds the vehicle elevator which players on wheels can utilize to get to the Black Ridge section. If you enter the server room, prepare for intense close-quarter combat gameplay. From here, you can also take a zipline to the Command Center. Command Center Located smack in the middle of Exposure, the Command Center is designed to be an intense, highly populated battleground. The area consists of three sub-sections: The Tunnels, The Office, and The Balcony. Tanks can roam the former while infantry troops will engage in the office section. If you’re fighting on The Balcony, expect enemy helis to pay a visit. This clash of armor, infantry, and aircraft will create a ton of memorable Battlefield moments. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/40697820/f3d8e5db1e429065c04b0dd0176d1d176cc1cd03.png Mountain Complex This area consists of two sub-sections, a tunnel and office room. The tunnel holds the vehicle elevator, which the players can take to the monitoring section. The office room supports intense close-quarter combat gameplay and lets you take a zipline to the Command Center. Landslide Following a disastrous landslide, some of the interior of the research facility has been exposed and the surrounding area has been damaged. This is the lowest part of the valley in Exposure, and it’s vital to stay alert. Watch out for players jumping down from the cliffs. Use ziplines to get to higher points or stay down and hold the space for your team. Monitoring Station Capture the radar station in this section to get a good overview of the map's upper area. If you're approaching this control point in a vehicle, use the open spaces. Infantry should use the interior spaces to be safe. The flag at this control point sits dangerously close to the cliff edge, enabling infantry who have just captured the flag to make a dramatic exit. Jump off, deploy your parachute or wingsuit, and discover the rest of Exposure. {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/40697820/81ed71b29baf8c56082ba691b15403d6c11ee7e2.png New Specialist: Lis A true anti-vehicle expert, Ewelina Lis was born in Gdansk and got recruited into Poland's elite spec...Unleash the Unexpected - Season 1: Zero Hour Available NowJun 10, 2022 - Community AnnouncementsHigh-tech helicopter warfare.

Но известный журналист Джефф Грабб утверждает, что компания планирует побыстрее забыть о провальном шутере. Официально: DICE отказалась от идеи боев на 128 человек в Battlefield 2042Jun 7, 2022 - Gamemag.ruВ рамках рекламной кампании шутера Battlefield 2042 издательство EA и студия DICE пытались соблазнить игроков идеей масштабных сражений на гигантских картах, в которых смогут принять участие до 128 человек одновременно. Но спустя полгода разработчики признали полный провал концепции. Нулевой час с мизером контента: Представлен релизный трейлер Battlefield 2042: Zero HourJun 7, 2022 - Gamemag.ruИздательство EA и студия DICE опубликовали релизный трейлер первого сезона контента для многострадального шутера Battlefield 2042. Масштабное обновление Zero Hour станет доступно на всех платформах уже 9 июня. Battlefield 2042 Season 1 starts this weekJun 7, 2022 - PCGamesNBattlefield 2042 has had what can charitably be called a tough launch, but eight months later it's ready to turn the corner. Battlefield 2042 Season 1 starts June 9, and with it comes the multiplayer game's first battle pass, which adds a new specialist, new weapons and vehicles, and an awe-inspiring new map set in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Battlefield 2042 Season One is called Zero Hour, and its 100-tier battle pass provides the backbone for the new content it introduces to the game. Like other battle passes, there are free and premium tracks, and EA/DICE says that everything that impacts gameplay can be earned on the free track. The premium track includes cosmetics and in-game currency that can be used in the Battlefield shop. The takeaway is that you won't need to spend another dime in order to unlock the new gameplay content coming to Battlefield 2042 this season. The trailer is a good showcase of the scenic new map, Exposure. Set high in the mountains, the map features wide open fields that fall away in sheer cliffs and rock slides into a ravine below that's opened up due to a major earthquake. It's extremely vertical, with plenty of space for air combat and wingsuiting. For players who prefer close quarters combat, there's a secret military facility carved into the mountain that features tunnels, server rooms, and bunker emplacements ripe for intense brawls. Exposure supports 64 players in Breakthrough and 128 players in Conquest mode. Read the rest of the story...

This update, which somewhat confusingly resets the version number to 1.0.0, also fixes a number of remaining bugs and makes some welcome quality-of-life improvements to the troubled FPS. EA/DICE says that players should find that animations and movement are much smoother overall, thanks to "multiple improvements to soldier gameplay". The hit registration issues that have plagued Battlefield 2042 have also been addressed with improvements to weapon netcode and some balance changes that include boosts to bullet velocity for designated marksman rifles and light machine guns, and better accuracy for shotguns. The patch also adds some new ways to earn XP in matches, DICE says. You'll now get XP bonuses for taking out an enemy who has recently wounded or killed a member of your squad, and when a teammate takes out a vehicle you've damaged and kills the crew.

We’ve also done a further balance pass which includes increased projectile speeds for DMR’s and LMG’s, and improved accuracy for Shotguns. Multiple new XP events have been added, such as for killing an enemy who recently wounded or killed a squadmate, or when an enemy vehicle you recently damaged is destroyed by a teammate and the occupants are killed The number of available in-world vehicles has been increased for Conquest which should make it easier to move across the map Sundance’s Wingsuit has been adjusted to lower overall flight time, while making it easier to maneuver.

The developer is quick to state that, "it's important to us to keep the fight fair for everyone," saying that spending real-world money "won't give you any advantages on the battlefield" in the multiplayer game. However, some players are already upset with the ability to directly level up the pass with real money. The Battlefield 2042 season 1 battle pass has a free tier and a premium tier, with the latter requiring the purchase of a premium battle pass or the year one pass that was provided to owners of the game's gold and ultimate editions. There are 100 tiers, which are reached by earning XP while playing the game. 30 rewards are included in the free tiers, while the premium pass features something for each of the 100 tiers. A note says that content missed in a season can still be unlocked "at a later stage," although there is no indication given as to when that might be. While DICE emphasises that the premium tier is limited to cosmetics and items with no gameplay benefit, players on the game's subreddit have already pointed out that, because users can spend the premium currency to skip through the tiers without playing, there is an 'indirect pay-to-win' element. Players can spend 'Battlefield currency,' bought with real money or earned from the battle pass, to more rapidly reach the free tiers which award gameplay elements such as weapons and specialists.
