Update starts rolling out at 1AM.

DICE just released the details for the forthcoming 4.2.2 update coming tonight to Battlefield V. This update will be for all platforms. On the PC it will weigh in at about 800MB and on the Xbox One it will be roughly 50MB. Those on the PlayStation 4 will apparently just have to roll the dice on how big their update will be.

As of right now, the update will begin rolling out at 1AM (PT) beginning with the PC. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow at 2AM and 3AM respectively. While this update does include a number of crash fixes, it still does not enable nor include Al Sundan for the Conquest game mode. That is still apparently being worked on.

The full changelog, as it currently stands, can be seen below.

What’s Changed?
  • Eliminated the most common cause of crashing on all Platforms, across all game modes
  • Separately fixed a different issue, addressing a hard crash in Practice Range when interacting with Planes
A Note Concerning PC Downloads for this Update
One thing that we observed during our internal testing was that the download speed dropped significantly once the update hit 95%. The update will otherwise download at your usual speeds until you reach 95%. We're actively investigating this in case the issue is set to persist when we flip the switch tomorrow morning (it could just be a unique issue relating to our internal testing). In the event that you do encounter this, our best advice is to wait it out rather than attempting to restart the patching process as you won't see it behave any differently a second time around.

The Update is estimated at around 800MB in size on PC, so this will only affect the last 40MB or thereabouts, which is likely to download at around 100kb/s irrespective of your internet speed, or the rate at which the rest of the update downloaded at. We're going to work on this one through the rest of the day with our teams across EA to see if we can fix this, and will provide further updates should we learn anything new. Given what the update otherwise fixes, we ask for your patience on the slower download, rather than delay the update itself whilst we investigate that. Ultimately, the update will download and install correctly.
