O lançamento de Battlefield 2042 pode ter sido turbulento e não tão aclamado pela crítica quanto se esperava (confira nossa análise aqui), mas diversos jogadores estão aproveitando e esperando por novidades e melhorias para o jogo.

Em uma nota no site oficial do jogo, a DICE anunciou como será o suporte ao jogo nesta janela de lançamento, assim como o comprometimento do estúdio em melhorar o jogo e o manter ativo por tempos. A desenvolvedora também entende a frustração dos jogadores com a falta de recursos e promete adicioná-las ao jogo, como placar no final das partidas, chat ingame, busca de servidores e mais.

Duas atualizações já estão programadas e afetaram diversas reclamações dos jogadores, como problemas de conexão, estabilidade de servidores, balanceamento de armas e veículos, progressão e ganhos de XP no modo Portal, interface e mais.

A primeira dessas atualizações já estará disponível amanhã, 25 de novembro, e será focada no balanceamento do jogo. O poder abuso de veículos será controlado e vários receberão nerfs. Além disso, ajustes de armas também acontecerão, como aumento na precisão de escopetas e recuo mais correto para a PP-29. Bugs que impediam a ressureição de companheiros foram identificados e também serão corrigidos.

Abaixo é possível conferir a lista completa de mudanças para a atualização 2 do jogo.


Update 0.2.2
