Even if you're the biggest Battlefield 2042 fan, I think we can all agree that it's had a rough time so far. Still, EA and DICE seem to be working pretty hard, with its third update launching yesterday with hundreds of fixes and changes. There's even a shared Battlefield universe and other 2042 things coming, so it's not like EA and DICE dumped Battlefield 2042 onto the world and left. That's why the latest news should make a lot of people happy, as while a new Battlefield 2042 map, Exposure, and specialist are neat, the return of 64-player modes on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC are what a lot of people have wanted.

Let's start from the top: the upcoming Battlefield 2042 map is called Exposure is coming next year and will apparently take "map design to a whole new level." I guess we'll have to wait and see about that. 2022 will also come with the launch of the game's first season, which comes with the new specialist, vehicles, gadgets, and things that go shooty shooty. Until then, though, players will have to deal with this lack of new content by playing through the current content with fewer players.

That's right: the Conquest and Breakthrough modes can now be played with 64 players on next-gen consoles and PC, which should come as a welcome surprise to players that want the old-school balance and chaos that the Battlefield games were known for. More isn't always better, after all. 

Still, there's a lot of things that Battlefield 2042 needs in order its remotely considered to be fixed or even playable to some fans, such as the inclusion of voice chat, a server browser, and a scoreboard at the end of the match. It's honestly mind-boggling those things weren't in the game and a bunch of executives were like "yes, this is perfect." Well, it wasn't. Not by a long shot.
