The release of Battlefield 2042 back in November of 2021 was accompanied by a lot of problems for the game that was supposed to be the grand return to glory days for the beloved FPS franchise.
Since the early access release, Battlefield 2042 has been suffering from hilarious bugs and glitches, optimisation issues, servers instability, and most importantly - many questionable design choices which were heavily criticized by the community.
Two months later it seems that Battlefield 2042 is still drowning in problems as the player base is getting smaller with each new day. A silver lining in this whole situation is that DICE hasn't given up on fixing the game, and they are still actively working on new patches in order to fix the most alarming issues.
The latest patch, Battlefield 2042 Update 3.2, is slated to be released on 20th January, and it comes with a slew of improvements.
Don't expect radical design changes, but bug fixes and stability improvements which would hopefully result in a more stable and smoother experience.
Check out the full patch notes.
