The first patch for Battlefield 2042 Season 2 is now available on all platforms. Update 2.1 has plenty to offer, including the rework of the Renewal map.

According to the developers, their goal for the rework is to improve the infantry and close-quarter combat experience in Renewal. To do this, some sections have been completely removed, especially those that broke the flow of the game. The changes made should put objectives significantly closer to each other, thus reducing the time needed for players to traverse from Point A to Point B.

In addition, defenses on certain sections of the map have been heavily fortified. For example, the Synseco building’s hallways are now filled with sandbags that offer good protection against enemy fire. On top of that, the foyer section of the building is now lined with sturdy defenses, which means attackers might have to think of other ways of breaching through.
