Battlefield 2042 Beta “Missing Core Components” will be there at release
The recent Battlefield 2042 Open Beta was missing a few important features that were not only present in previous Battlefield games, but are also considered fairly basic. Their absence has worried many gamers about which final version developer DICE is now leaning into.
In a lengthy blog post earlier today, DICE acknowledged that the Battlefield 2042 Open Beta “lacked some essential components.” However, they have not been abandoned. The missing features were either disabled due to bugs or ignored due to ongoing development. Rest assured that they will be there for players when the full game officially launches.
The open beta has prevented players from opening the full map to see the entire battlefield, which will be fixed in the full version. DICE will additionally add a nearby grenade indicator for players in the final version, as well as the ability to jump on moving objects and strafing entrances.
Additionally, a pinging system for issuing friendlies commands or updates, considered crucial in any tactical game, was present in the Battlefield 2042 open beta but was not performing as expected, another concern that will be addressed. in the final version.
“Ping was not performing as well as we would have liked during the open beta,” said DICE, “but at launch you can expect it to perform more responsively when you ping enemy locations, resources and soldiers. “
DICE previously confirmed that the open beta of Battlefield 2042 was “a few months old” and without many visual and stability improvements that were subsequently worked on for the final version. This is mainly why the recently staged Open Beta lacked the aforementioned features, but which will be present on the first day of release.
Battlefield 2042 launches on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S and PC on October 22, 2021.
