Battlefield 2042 is getting some major map design changes after EA begins listening to fan feedback.
Over the last couple of months since the game’s launch, Battlefield 2042’s developer team has been incredibly silent.
It’s one of the things that had many fans thinking that the game would never get the fixes it so sorely needs. Now, things are changing in a big way.
Today, EA announced that Battlefield 2042 Season 1 is being delayed to Summer 2022. And while that doesn’t sound like good news, it might be a blessing in disguise.
After all, the publisher is finally beginning to listen to fan feedback about Battlefield 2042. It seems that fan opinions will even influence how map design changes get implemented!
Big Map Changes Coming to Battlefield 2042 – February 2022
If you’re not a fan of Battlefield 2042’s maps, it’s time to make your choice heard!
Since launch, fans have been complaining about the maps of Battlefield 2042. After all, it’s the most pristine post-apocalyptic environment we’ve ever seen, which really takes away from the immersion of the game.
In a new blog post, Battlefield 2042 is asking for fan feedback to fix its map design. Citing some of the game’s problem areas as being an abundance of openness and lack of cover, it’s clear that change is on the way.
However, fans will get the opportunity to voice their opinions on the matter later this month.
“Later this month, this process will kick off with one of our key focus areas, map design,” EA writes. “We want to outline to you our vision for how we’re going to approach and factor into our new maps enhancements to the gameplay experience”
What’s unclear is whether DICE will fix older maps or simply move their focus onto the new content. We already have leaks for the next Battlefield 2042 map, Exposure, although that won’t drop until Summer now.
It’s certainly true that Battlefield has been held back by last-gen consoles, which may have contributed to the issue. However, just looking at the insane graphics featured in Battlefield 5, it’s clear there’s been a downgrade this time around.
Maybe that’s why Battlefield 5 and 1 are overtaking 2042 in player count these days…
In more disappointing news, Battlefield 2042’s voice chat won’t arrive until after March! And with a lack of attention to squad-based gameplay, it’s no wonder that Hazard Zone was dead on arrival.
Yet EA Customer Support actually reports that players are very happy with Battlefield 2042! But if these players exist, they’re definitely not the vocal members of the community.
