In Patch 4.0 für Battlefield 2042 steckt mehr als zunächst gedacht: Fans haben nicht nur einen möglichen Termin für die erste Season, sondern auch versteckte Änderungen entdeckt.

Vor wenigen Tagen erschien mit Patch 4.0 das neueste Update für Battlefield 2042. Mit mehreren hundert oft kleineren Änderungen hat der Patch zwar so einiges zu bieten, kam aber bei der Community dennoch nicht besonders gut an. Grund dafür ist, das ein großer Teil der Änderungen Bug-Fixes sind, die viele Spielerinnen und Spieler bereits kurz nach Release erwartet hätten.

Aufmerksame Spieler und Dataminer haben nun aber herausgefunden, dass sich im Update nicht nur ein möglicher Termin für Season 1 versteckt, sondern auch viele weitere Änderungen verborgen sind, die nicht in den Patch-Notes erwähnt werden.

Wann beginnt Season 1?

Die Entwickler selbst sprechen von einem Release der ersten Season im frühen Sommer, ein genaues Datum wurde jedoch bisher nicht genannt. Im neuesten Patch hat jetzt der bekannte Battlefield-Dataminer Temporyal wöchentliche Missionen für acht weitere Wochen vor dem Release der Season gefunden. Das bedeutet, dass frühestens am 16. Juni 2022 mit den neuen Inhalten zu rechnen ist.

Allerdings steht dieser Termin längst nicht endgültig fest. So könnten mit dem nächsten Update im Mai noch weitere Missionen folgen, oder die Entwickler sich entschließen, die Season einfach noch weiter zu verschieben. Das wäre allerdings höchst riskant, schließlich hat Battlefield bei den Spielerzahlen auf Steam erst vor kurzem einen neuen Tiefpunkt erreicht, neue Inhalte werden also dringend benötigt.

Was steckt noch in Patch 4.0?

Aber auch die Battlefield-Community konnte einiges entdecken, was mit der Veröffentlichung von Update 4.0 nicht angekündigt wurde. Auf Reddit haben Spieler über 100 Änderungen zusammengetragen, die nicht in den Patch-Notes zu finden waren. Einige der nennenswertesten Verbesserungen und Änderungen listen wir euch hier auf:

  • Zerstörungseffekte wurden teilweise verbessert
  • Zusätzliche Zip-Lines auf der Karte Manifest wurden hinzugefügt
  • Maus- und Controller-Steuerung wurden verbessert
  • Erscheinungsbild der Wolkenkratzer auf der Karte Sanduhr verbessert
  • Neue Nahkampfanimationen für Portal hinzugefügt
  • Freies Umschauen in Third-Person-Ansicht ist nun in Fahrzeugen möglich
  • Neue Animation für das Markieren von Orten oder Feinden
  • Neue Voicelines für das Markieren von Feinden und Gegenständen

Da es sich um eine von Fans erstellte Liste handelt, können wir allerdings nicht garantieren, dass alle Punkte zutreffen. Allerdings weist ein Entwickler von DICE darauf hin, dass einige der aufgeführten Änderungen schon früher fertiggestellt wurden, es aber nicht in vorherige Patches schafften und deshalb nicht in den Patch-Notes auftauchen. So scheint zumindest ein Teil der geheimen Änderungen echt zu sein.

Für viele Spieler kommen alle Patches und Bug-Fixes zu spät und können die Enttäuschung über das neueste Battlefield nicht mehr rückgängig machen. Selbst Battlefield-Spieler Phil verbringt seine Zeit inzwischen lieber im alles andere als perfekten World War 3.

Der Multiplayer-Shooter bekommt ein größeres Update mit vielen Bugfixes. Hier findet ihr die wichtigsten Änderungen und alle Patch Notes in der Übersicht.

Battlefield 2042 leidet nach wie vor unter Spielerschwund und einer frustrierten Community. Mit Updates wollen die Entwickler diesen Umstand ändern. Langfristig sind etwa umfangreiche Änderungen an den Maps und den Specialists geplant. Aber auch das am 19. April veröffentlichte Update verspricht neben zahlreichen Bugfixes und dem Voicechat einige kleinere Änderungen in diesen Bereichen.

Die wichtigsten Verbesserungen und die kompletten Patch-Notes findet ihr in diesem Artikel. Ob negative Steam-Reviews Battlefield 2042 und anderen Spielen eher geschadet haben oder am Ende gar folgenlos geblieben sind, haben wir durch nüchterne Zahlen und die Befragung von Experten herausgefunden.

Das steckt in Update 4.0

 

Die komplette Liste aller Änderungen im neuen Update für Battlefield 2042 ist fast so lange wie der Weg zum nächsten Sektor, deshalb haben wir einige Highlights und bemerkenswerte Änderungen für euch herausgesucht.

  • VoIP: Ein Feature, das seit Release von vielen Spielerinnen und Spielern gewünscht wurde, ist die Möglichkeit per Voicechat mit anderen Spielern kommunizieren zu können. Mit Update 4.0 wurde VoIP endlich eingeführt, ihr könnt nun mit Mitgliedern eures Squads und eurer Party sprechen.
  • Scoreboard am Rundenende: Das in Update 3.3 eingeführte Scoreboard könnt ihr nun auch am Rundenende einsehen. Alle weiteren Änderungen des vorherigen Updates findet ihr übrigens hier.
  • Änderungen an Fahrzeugen:
    • Die Besatzung des M5C Bolte kann nun einfacher unter Beschuss genommen werden, außerdem wird dessen Raketenwerfer geschwächt. Das leichte Kettenfahrzeug wurde des Öfteren als zu stark wahrgenommen.
    • Als erster Schritt zu den geplanten Verbesserungen der Maps wurde die Zahl der Fahrzeuge auf allen Maps in den verschiedenen Spielmodi geringfügig verringert.
  • Änderungen an Specialists: Alle Specialists haben diverse Bugfixes und Anpassungen erhalten, darunter sind auch einige Balance-Änderungen:
    • Sundance: Die Panzerabwehrgranaten wurden überarbeitet, um effektiver gegen nahe Ziele zu sein, außerdem explodieren Splittergranaten schneller.
    • Paik: Die Fähigkeit Bedrohungswahrnehmung wurde durch Adlerauge ersetzt: Von ihr getroffene Spieler werden nun für alle auf der Karte sichtbar.
    • Rao: Dieser Specialist erhält dagegen nun die Fähigkeit Bedrohungswahrnehmung. Wird er angegriffen, wird ihm der Angreifer auf der Karte angezeigt.
  • Sprinkler auf Kaleidoskop: Die Sprinkleranlagen in Gebäuden sind nun weniger lange aktiv und verursachen keinen Schaden mehr. Auch der Einfriereffekt im HUD wurde verringert. Diese Änderungen scheinen aber nicht andere Maps wie beispielsweise Orbital zu betreffen.
  • Änderungen an Waffen:
    • Waffenaufsätze überarbeitet: Die Effekte von Zielfernrohren, Griffen, Magazinen und Lauf-Modifikationen vieler Waffen wurden angepasst. Ziel war es hier, für bemerkbare und einzigartige Veränderungen des Waffenverhaltens zu sorgen.
    • M44 Revolver gefixt: Ein kurioser Bug plagte seit dem Launch den Revolver M44: So wurden nur fünf statt sechs Schuss nachgeladen. Dieser Fehler wurde nun beseitigt.
  • Erfahrungspunkte angepasst: Zuletzt wurden auch die erhaltenen Erfahrungspunkte für bestimmte Unterstützungs-Aktionen angepasst. Ihr erhaltet nun etwa mehr XP für das Heilen eurer Teamkollegen, das Reparieren ihrer Fahrzeuge und das Auffüllen ihrer Munition. Im Gegenzug wurden allerdings die erhaltenen Punkte für das Erobern von Sektoren verringert.

Neben den vorgestellten Änderungen versprechen die Entwickler für das neue Update noch viele Bugfixes und kleinere Änderungen. Auf Seite 2 dieses Artikels findet ihr die gesamten Patch-Notes von Update 4.0.

Was kommt als Nächstes?

Das nächste Update für Battlefield 2042 soll im Mai 2022 erscheinen und sich ebenfalls auf Verbesserungen und Bugfixes konzentrieren. Genauere Informationen versprechen die Entwickler, wenn der Release näher rückt.

Im Sommer soll dann nach einer Verschiebung die erste Season mit einer neuen Karte, sowie neuen Specialists und Waffen veröffentlicht werden. Im Zuge dieser sollen auch die ersten größeren Änderungen an den Karten folgen.

Weniger als 1000 Spieler gleichzeitig, das ist der neue Negativrekord von Battlefield 2042 auf Steam. Wie sieht die Zukunft des Shooters aus?

Es ist keine Neuigkeit, dass Battlefield 2042 in den Augen vieler Spieler und wohl auch für den Publisher EA selbst gescheitert ist. Seit dem Release sanken die Spielerzahlen des von technischen und inhaltlichen Problemen geplagten Multiplayer-Shooters konstant, zumindest auf den Plattformen, die diese Daten offenlegen.

Nun wurde ein neuer Tiefpunkt erreicht. Auf Steam tummelten sich mit nur noch 951 Spielern so wenige wie noch nie zuvor auf den virtuellen Schlachtfeldern. Interessant ist in diesem Zusammenhang auch der Vergleich mit den internen Vorgängern, denn dadurch werden die Auswirkungen der Spielerdürre verdeutlicht.

Niedrige Spielerzahlen setzen Teufelskreis in Gang

Das Dilemma von Battlefield 2042 wird von SteamDB erbarmungslos offenbart. Nachdem die Zahlen in den vergangenen Wochen der 1.000er-Marke bereits gefährlich nahe gekommen waren, wurde dieser Wert nun tatsächlich unterboten.

 

Wie ist es um Battlefield 2042 bestellt? SteamDB beantwortet diese Frage nur mit einer Verlaufskurve.

 

Wie aussagekräftig ist Steam als Datenquelle? Wie immer gilt, dass Steam nur eine von vielen Plattformen ist, auf denen ihr Battlefield 2042 spielen könnt. Da es weder zu EAs Origin noch den Konsolenversionen öffentlich einsehbare Zahlen gibt, lässt sich nicht mit hundertprozentiger Gewissheit sagen, wie es um den Shooter bestellt ist. Aufgrund der Popularität von Steam auf dem PC kann man diesen Wert dennoch als relevante Grundlage betrachten.

Auf Steam haben die Zahlen bereits Auswirkungen. Die Spielerknappheit setzt eine Art Teufelskreis in Gang, aus dem sich ein Multiplayer-Titel irgendwann nur noch schwer befreien kann: Je weniger Leute auf dem Server sind, umso schwieriger bekommt man genügend Mitspieler beisammen, um eine Partie wie vorgesehen starten und erleben zu können. Der Anblick der leeren Server schreckt wiederum potenzielle Neueinsteiger ab, wodurch sich an der Situation nichts ändert und die Abwärtsspirale fortschreitet.

Die Enttäuschung über den Zustand von Battlefield 2042 hat auch bereits durchaus humoristische Blüten getrieben.

Vergleich mit Battlefield 4 lässt aufhorchen

Die derzeitige Situation in Battlefield 2042 sieht nicht gerade besser aus, wenn man die Serverliste mit dem neun Jahre älteren Battlefield 4 vergleicht.

Während man in BF2042 bereits Probleme hat, in Spielmodi wie Portal oder Hazard Zone genügend Spieler zu finden, sieht die Situation in BF4 deutlich rosiger aus. Hier kann man aus belebten Servern wählen und sich sofort ins Gefecht stürzen. In beiden Fällen haben wir alle Filter nach bestimmten Spielmodi deaktiviert.

Wie geht es weiter mit Battlefield 2042?

Kurios: Knapp sechs Monate nach Release läuft noch immer die Season 1 in Battlefield 2042. Die verbleibenden Spieler warten sehnsüchtig auf neue Inhalte, weitere Bugfixes und Verbesserungen, die dem Shooter neues Leben einhauchen sollen.

Noch im April soll immerhin ein riesiges Update erscheinen, dass mehrere hundert Änderungen beinhalten soll. Offiziell ist Battlefield 2042 damit also noch immer nicht abgeschrieben worden, was auch gar nicht so einfach möglich wäre. Schließlich hat man vor Release den Käufern der teuren Ultimate Edition den kostenlosen Zugang zu weiteren vier Seasons mitverkauft.

Dennoch verdichten sich die Anzeichen, dass man intern schon eifrig am nächsten Serienteil arbeitet, der die Fehler von Battlefield 2042 nicht wiederholen soll:

Regelmäßiger Nachschub an neuen Inhalten ist nicht nur für Battlefield 2042 ein Problem, sondern auch für andere große Spiele wie Halo: Infinite, Forza Horizon 5 oder Age of Empires 4.
