The game conditions are getting worse and worse, so patch 4.0 could be decisive for the future of the game. The full changelog is expected to be published along with the update next week as no official release date has been announced. Update 4.0 for Battlefield 2042 is coming next week, so we don’t have full patch notes yet, but Johnson has tweeted a long preview of what to expect.

DICE has already detailed the next major patch, Update 4.0, so here are the next major patch and early patch notes. Of course, it remains to be seen if the update will be able to bring players back to the most recent version of DICE, although the effort is certainly notable. In addition to fixing a long list of bugs and making “over 150” map improvements not covered in DICE’s patch notes, DICE says the major update to Battlefield 2042 will bring balance changes, and UI improvements (making it easier to load and attachment customization, for example), as well as introducing weekly tasks that can be done for XP. According to DICE Community Manager Kevin Johnson, Update 4.0 includes over 400 individual changes for bugs, quality of life updates, and balance issues.

The Game Community Manager detailed some of the changes that will be included in the highly anticipated April Battlefield 2042 Patch in a Twitter thread, including fixes to weapon accessories, vehicle balance changes, and updates to some Battlefield 2042 specialists. Johnson also teased the changes we can expect, along with over 400 fixes in the Battlefield 2042 Update 4.0 patch, which finally adds voice chat, changes some specialists, tweaks vehicles, and checks attachments. Now, with DICE still gearing up to launch Season 1, nearly 6 months after release day, the developer is making major changes to Battlefield 2042.

As Battlefield 2042 Season 1 kicks off in early summer, DICE could run into some issues as DICE juggles content updates and fixes to improve the game. The game suffered a disastrous launch last year and was on track to enter the top 10 worst-rated games on Steam, it currently sits in the 11th spot. Now it remains to be seen how much the game will benefit from this as the devs are clearly putting an effort.
