Battlefield 2042: game to get better by the time it releases

EA on their official site talked about the importance of an open beta for the devs. It helped them test their systems outside the development phase, ensuring all the solutions are implemented before the final launch.

An open beta test also helps the developers to gain an internal as well as an external perspective, and the most crucial part about the open beta test is the feedback received from the stakeholders, which also go a long way in helping the devs.

DICE will implement the following changes in the game.

  • Increase the number of Tanks on Orbital from 4 to 8 in consoles.
  • Made changes to movement, adding strafe input to sliding, adding the ability to vault on moving objects, and toning down jump spamming.
  • Added a nearby Grenade indicator
  • Entry and Exit animations shortened or removed entirely
  • Elevators have been fixed

Battlefield 2042: performance feedbacks

The developers talked about the method of ‘Branching’ where the most stable build is identified and developed further to receive new content additions and bug fixes. Branching allowed the developers to filter out the bugs and polish the game through various forms of testing.

The game is being optimized, and the community is relieved that the open beta stages never really fully represent what the final version of a game may look like.

EA has promised that they will continue updating fans with the latest news before the launch.
