    The first update for Season 1 drops on July 6.

    DICE just detailed what is coming in the 1.1 update for Battlefield 2042. Rather, it's Update #1.1.0, just so we're super clear on this because those previous update versions were needlessly confusing.

    DICE Has No Time for Non-Battlefield Content

    It's Battlefield or bust for developer DICE.

    If you wanted something else from developer DICE, like maybe a new Mirror's Edge, you're going to have a long wait. In the here and now, DICE has no plans to make anything not-Battlefield related. In fact, it seems as though the studio is only focused on Battlefield 2042 at the moment.

    Schrödinger's development team.

    Depending on who you listen to and who you believe, either a "skeleton crew" is left working on Battlefield 2042 development, or the entire team at DICE is still working on the game.

    Back in April, the idea that there were only a handful of people left working on Battlefield 2042 started to circulate online. When asked how many people were still working on 2042, DICE game designer Frederik Drabert said that "almost everyone"...

    Battlefield 2042 Update 1.0 Patch Notes

    Yes, 1.0. We're up to version 1.0 after the game has been out now for almost 200 days.

    Battlefield 2042 is truly the gift that keeps on giving. I mean that in the most condescending way possible here. Since Battlefield 2042 officially launched on November 19, 2021 it has received zero content updates while the team at DICE worked to make the game less of a steaming mess of a pile. The first season for the game is, at last, finally upon us and with it comes a rather anemic amount of...

    This is the least shocking news ever.

    DICE announced that they are no longer going to support or release new content for the Hazard Zone mode in Battlefield 2042.

    Now, I know what you're thinking: "How could they end support for something that they never supported in the first place?" And you would be correct in asking that rhetorical question. What this essentially means is that DICE isn't going to convert any new maps into Hazard Zone variants. The mode will...

  • Poll: Have You Ever Raged Because of a Game?
    by Shawn Zipay
    Broken controllers, holes in walls, excessive yelling and swearing.

    While I'm sure we would all like to consider ourselves here calm, cool, and collected that might not always hold true when playing a frustrating game. Maybe you're having a particularly frustrating day, and nothing is going your way. Maybe your teammates (and totally not you) are doing terrible and you're losing a multiplayer game because of it. Maybe you just died for the 50th time to a boss that did some unblockable...
    Yes, I've raged. Full on broken controller & hole in wall levels of rage.
    Yes, I've raged but without any sort of property damage.
    No / can't remember. I'm as calm as a cucumber even when the odds are stacked against me.
