Battlefield 2042 scoreboard update is now live – VOIP coming in April

DICE is starting what they hope will be a path to redemption for Battlefield 2042 with the release of update #3.3 today that implements an overhauled scoreboard UI, and promises to add VOIP support in an update coming in April.

The scoreboard update brings back a table filled with all players in the expanded 128-player game, showing their relative scores, kils, deaths revives, captures and so on. It was a notable omission from the game at launch, but now returns one of the fundamentals of multiplayer shooters since they dawned a couple decades ago. DICE assert that, even following user feedback, this is just the first version of the new scoreboard and further improvements will be made, including making it available during end of round screens.

BF 2042 March Scoreboard Update

The scoreboard update was originally expected earlier this year, but delayed to March as DICE pushed back their whole roadmap for updates and new content. Season One of the live service game will now not start until this summer, as DICE seek to address as many of the community and critical complaints surrounding the game since its November 2021 launch. In the meantime, the player base has dwindled significantly, with both Battlefield V and Battlefield 1 regularly able to draw more players on Steam.

By way of apology for the delays, they’re also handing out the Steadfast Exclusive Legendary Bundle of cosmetics. This is going live today for all Battlefield 2042 Gold Edition, Ultimate Edition, Year 1 Pass, Year 1 Pass and Ultimate Pack upgrade owners, as well as EA Play Pro subscribers. It includes:

  • Zero Resistance Skin for Mackay
  • Grasshopper Weapon Skin for the K30
  • Rapid Hammer Weapon Skin for the M44
  • Iron Chariot Vehicle Skin for the M5C Bolte
  • Rib Tickler Melee Weapon Skin
  • Resolute Player Card Background
  • The Steadfast Player Card Icon

And finally, here’s the patch notes for Battlefield 2042 Update #3.3:

General

  • Fixed a game crash that could occur on Origin or Xbox One when signing in/out while using an Xbox One controller
  • Setting “Chat” Key Bindings no longer requires a game restart to take effect
  • Adjusted Aim Assist on console to ensure that the system is in effect when analogue sticks are at 100% of their range. Previously it was only active at ranges below 100%
  • Fixed a bug where takedowns would not result in a kill on Xbox One and PlayStation®4
  • Established new location for our EU Data Centre as Frankfurt

Modes

  • Conquest & Breakthrough – fixed a bug where the Securing Objective XP-event was triggered even after a Capture Point was already fully captured
  • Hazard Zone – fixed a visual bug displaying squad mates during the match found sequence
  • Hazard Zone – fixed a bug where the End of Round XP gains sometimes didn’t trigger
