Meanwhile, the Steadfast Pack includes a new character skin, new weapon skins, and a new player map background and map icon.
Other fixes include:
- Fixed a game crash that could occur on Origin or Xbox One when signing in/out when using an Xbox One controller.
- The Chat keybinding setting no longer requires a game restart to take effect.
- Adjusted console aim assist to ensure the system is operational when analog sticks are at 100% of their range. Previously, it was active only in ranges below 100%.
- Fixed an issue where takedowns would not result in a kill on Xbox One and PlayStation®4.
- A new location has been established for our EU data center in Frankfurt.
- Conquer and Breakout – Fixed an issue that caused the “Protect Target” event to trigger even after the capture point had already been fully captured.
- Hazard Zone – Fixed a visual bug displaying squad mates during the found match sequence.
- Danger Zone – Fixed an issue that sometimes caused the experience gain at the end of a round to not trigger.
Developer DICE has suspended work on Battlefield 2042 after more than 60,000 players have filed a refund request amid widespread criticism of the game. Earlier this month, the studio said future Battlefield 2042 maps will be smaller after players criticized the game for being a “walking sim”. It looks like EA is putting the blame on the COVID pandemic and Halo Infinite.
