Battlefield 2042 update 3 patch notes and downtime news for HUGE download

The new Battlefield 2042 update might be the biggest patch we’ve ever come across. Battlefield 2042 update #3 has a December 2 release date on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. According to a recent tweet by Electronic Arts, the update will be available to download at 8am GMT. Best of all – and perhaps surprising given the size of the update – the new patch doesn’t require any server downtime. Of course, there’s a chance this could change once the update goes live, and things potentially go wrong. Stay tuned to Express Online for any further updates regarding downtime.

As for the update itself, the new Battlefield 2042 patch is the game’s biggest yet. The new update makes over 150 gameplay improvements across the entire roster of maps.

“Throughout several areas of the game we’ve introduced improvements to make your experience while interacting within maps feel smoother,” EA explains.

“This includes over 150 individual fixes, small changes, and improvements across all of our Maps where we noticed they were detracting from gameplay, such as spawning, visual glitching or collision issues.

“Audio, rendering and interaction improvements and fixes for weapons, vehicles and Specialists are also included.”

Even better, however, is the addition of Weekly Missions, which come with their own cosmetic rewards. Battlefield Portal adds new game mode layouts for Rush, while additional templates are available in Builder.
