Battlefield 2042 Update 4: Release Date, Patch Notes, Gameplay, Bug Fixes And More

Battlefield 2042 Update 4 is on its way and we have all of the information you need regarding the upcoming patch.

It is fair to say that it has been quite a struggle for the developers of Battlefield 2042 as the gaming community has massively criticised the game for various reasons; the main one being the sheer amount of bugs in the game.

There have already been a fair amount of updates despite the game only being released in November, but they haven't seemed to solve the issue. In fact, some may argue that they have made it worse.

Hopefully this upcoming update will make the changes needed to allow Battlefield 2042 to thrive without bugs. If not, we will most likely see the game lose popularity within months of release and this is crazy to think about.
