Game developer DICE notes that legacy features such as an end-of-round scoreboard, server browser, and the ability to use in-game voice chat can be added to Battlefield 2042.
In an explanation about a recent update and plans for the coming period says DICE It ‘want to Old Features To make them come back with an accurate assessment’. Additionally, the developer specifically mentions a scoreboard at the end of the round, a browser so players can choose to play on a particular server more specifically, and the ability to use in-game voice chat.
According to DICE, these are “big topics” that cannot all be dealt with at the same time. The developer reported that he wanted to say something about it, but said he would only do so later when something could really be shown. Only then will DICE go into details about the long-term view of certain features and functions.
A modified scoreboard, server browser, and lack of in-game voice chat are some of the points players often mention as criticisms of Battlefield 2042, according to DICE. It’s not entirely clear what the developer is referring to in regards to the scoreboard. The current scoreboard has been criticized for not having a traditional show during and after the tour.
The game does have some sort of scoreboard, but it lacks a view with an overview of all the individual players sorted according to their individual stats and data, such as how many times they killed an opponent or killed themselves. These kinds of numbers and rows in the form of a clear scoreboard are actually always a standard part of multiplayer shooters and this is also true of previous Battlefield games.
Battlefield 2042 has already received a patch and there is no end to it at the moment. The second update will be released on Thursday, which will include improvements to bullet spread of weapons. With regards to automatic rifles in particular, the criticism is that there is too much skew. Bullets, according to the players, often deviate from the point at which they are aimed, so that competitors often miss them. Moreover, the resolution of still shooting and zoom are increased and the hovercraft becomes less powerful.
A third update will be released in December that will improve or add more points. DICE also mentions complaints about file consistency aim help on consoles, but the developer doesn’t say when a fix for that will be released.
