Battlefield 2042 was released on all major platforms a little less than a week ago. The game is riddled with bugs, issues, and a lack of content. That is one of the reasons why it has received many negative reviews on Steam. The developer released the Day One patch to address some of the issues, but it wasn’t enough.

Another patch went live today that brought several gameplay tweaks, improvements, and bug fixes. The developer also confirmed that Update 3 will arrive next week, and it will be the biggest update yet.
