EA’s first update rolled out today at 09:00 UTC, bringing with it some issue fixing, balance updates, new weapons, and a few other nice little bits and bobs.

BF2042 has gradually, update after update, become fairly enjoyable, and regular patches like 3.1.2 help matters greatly.

Battlefield season 3 saw the Battle of Nordvik event during the holiday period, introducing some modes like Breakthrough Chaos. Any new update can spark a bit of anxiety but it looks as though these fresh changes are going to spice up the shooter once more.
