Battlefield 2042 Holiday Event update details

Highly awaited Battlefield 2042 was launched last month, following a massive building-up hype since the last year. There were tons of rumors and leaks floating around the project, thanks to some reputed industry insiders and they are timely reveals prior to the announcement. The game eventually witnessed an official teaser trailer in June, earlier this year. Interestingly, many fans weren’t happy after watching it but still, the overall response was positive.

Upon its launch, however, the game arrived with various issues as players complained about the gameplay. The title saw the hype going down all of a sudden, just under a month. It was also due to the fact that the AAA game received highly negative reviews from the majority of the users. At the moment, the developing team is trying to rectify major problems in the multiplayer.

Well, talking about the latest holiday season, it brings a totally free winter-themed player card and emblem. Plus, there’s also a “1942 vs 2042 Conquest” mode consisting of 64 players at one time. The official tweet from the makers didn’t exactly reveal the entire rewards, so it will have to see in the coming days. Battlefield 2042 is now available for all the major platforms like PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Xbox One.

What do you think about EA and DICE’s high octane, futuristic action multiplayer? Are you still playing it since the official release? And what are your opinions regarding its roadmap entering the new year?
