Battlefield 2042 Update April Xbox

Battlefield 2042's rough launch was about six months ago now, believe it or not, and the wheels finally seem to be in motion regarding future updates. Ahead of the season one launch this summer, DICE is delivering a pretty big update later this month, and there are some big changes coming.

First up, the previously promised scoreboard update and voice chat additions are finally coming in April's update. The scoreboard will now feature an end of round summary once matches wrap up, and players will actually be able to voice chat... in an online shooter.

Next up, a weapon attachment overhaul is in place for the update, with DICE wanting the changes to "have an impact on your loadout choice and gunplay".

Elsewhere, the infamous 'Bolte' vehicle — which has wreaked havoc on the battlefield since launch — is being altered, among other vehicle, specialist and equipment changes. Finally, XP gains are being adjusted, with ribbons and in-game actions set to hand out more XP.

DICE says that the full patch notes are coming next week, with the update to follow later on in April. As seems to be the norm with Battlefield 2042, details on release times are scarce, but hopefully this update has a big impact for players later this month.
