Battlefield 2042 krijgt deze week en begin december een fameuze update

Ik overdrijf niet wanneer ik zeg dat de launch van Battlefield 2042 niet over een leien dakje liep. Er waren heel wat problemen, getuige daarvan de middelmatige reviews en vele kritiek. Maar ze hebben bij DICE niet stilgezeten de voorbije dagen en weken.

Ik vraag me persoonlijk steeds af wanneer een game verschijnt die een waar bugfest is of de ontwikkelaars dat zelf niet zien. Toch besluiten ze om de game te releasen, met alle gevolgen vandien.

Anyway op 25 november en 3 december krijgt Battlefield 2042 twee stevige updates, en met stevig bedoelen we ook stevig zoals je hieronder kan zien.

Battlefield 2042 Update 2 (November 25)

  • Improved Soldier Revives, addressing ‘unable to revive when a Soldier dies close to an object, or wall’.
  • A respawn protection system that will help to prevent any extraneous issues that can leave a player in a downed state for too long, and force a manual respawn when required.
  • Re-enabling our UAV-1 Interaction in Battlefield Portal, available on our Battlefield Bad Company 2 maps. It was overpowered, and we’ve made adjustments to account for that.
  • Vehicle Balancing for the LCAA Hovercraft and MD540 Nightbird mentioned above.
  • Dispersion has been reduced for all weapons except Shotguns, which results in more consistent bullet spread during gameplay.
  • There are a handful more critical changes that we’re making alongside this update, which we’ll detail in full in our Update Notes on November 24.

Battlefield 2042 Update 3 (early December)

De ouderdomsdeken van Pragalicious maar daarom zeker niet minder delicious dan het jonge grut van de crew. Wilde als kleine jongen een console kopen maar mocht niet van zijn papa. Dus sprak hij de gevleugelde woorden "Later als ik groot ben koop ik het allemaal zelf" Als jonge snaak was hij met zijn korte broek, witte sokken en sandalen vaste klant bij de lunaparken aan zee en op de kermis. Raakte in de ban van Snake en Pong, ging al snel door naar Quake, Hexen, Doom, Wolfenstein 3D en Delta Force. Maar de grote game changers waren Quake 3 Arena (1999) en Unreal Tournament (1999). Praga beweert trouwens dat hij het buitenechtelijke (of moeten we buitenaardse zeggen) kind is van Indiana Jones en Lara Croft. We zullen hem maar in zijn geloof laten... (of tijdig zijn medicatie geven)
