Battlefield 2042’s 1.1 update, Season 1’s first major patch, offers a dizzying number of minor fixes, weapon reworks, and vehicle changes. It will release across all platforms on July 6.
The update expands XP events, granting XP for pilot kills, disarming mines, and repairing vehicles which go on to kill an enemy. Major balance changes include a reduction in power for the MV38-Condor’s 50mm Cannon, reworking the DMR to increase long-range combat usage, and increasing headshot damage in long range engagements. Battlefield Portal also received new additions such as new presets Air Superiority and Ground Superiority, new character voices, and the A-10 Warthog and SU-25TM Frogfoot as new vehicles in the Battlefield 3 mode.
The game’s first season, similar to Battlefield 2042’s initial launch, suffered from persistence errors. EA also denied rumors that only a skeleton crew was working on the game, and confirmed that no one at DICE was working on a Mirror’s Edge sequel or reboot. The next major update for Battlefield 2042 will release in August, with more details to come.
