DICE has released the full patch notes for Battlefield 2042‘s next big update. The 3.2 update is releasing on January 20, and it includes bug fixes and stability improvements, mainly.
Included in the patch are fixes for hit-registration issues, while instances of rubberbanding in some scenarios should be improved. The patch also addresses an issue where players could become stuck in a loop between being downed but still alive.
“This update is part of our continued commitment to address your feedback related to resolving bugs and improving gameplay,” DICE said.
The 3.2 update for Battlefield 2042 goes live on January 20 at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET, and it’s a “zero downtime” update, so players can jump right in after the download finishes. A size for the install wasn’t announced.
After this, another update is coming in February that has additional quality-of-life improvements and new features, including the long-awaited new Scoreboard UI.
Battlefield 2042 was 2021’s fifth best-selling game in the US, though EA has not announced a specific sales number for the futuristic military shooter.
