Game News Battlefield 2042: the launch of Zero Hour season 1 marred by a very big problem!
The Battlefield 2042 soldier may have his body riddled with bullets as a result of his very chaotic launch, yet he still stands. If we do not know what fate awaits him and whether or not he risks soon turning the gun on the left, the developers still wanted to offer him a first season. However, what was supposed to be an act of making amends turned into yet another snub since the game simply became unplayable, for some, following this launch.

Battlefield 2042 returns to the frontlines with “Zero Hour”
June 7 was an important date for Battlefield 2042. Six and a half months after the launch of the latest addition to the Battlefield franchise, the DICE studio teams have finally enhanced their title with a first season. Everything was perfectly in place to present what looks like a second wind for the FPS, and the teams had organized a livestream to present the new features before the launch in stride!
On the sidelines of all this, we report to you the first details known and communicated by DICE around this season 1 with the sweet name of “Zero Hour”. Unfortunately, this name could be prophetic of the fate that awaits Battlefield 2042 because what was supposed to be a joy for the teams has turned into a nightmare since some of the players who wanted to give a second chance at the title encountered an error message, making the game simply inaccessible to them.

So here it is, the soldier Battlefield 2042 is, admittedly, determined and eager to prove himself on the battlefield, except that he seems to have two left hands and that wasted throw is yet another of his feats. Battlefield 2042 may have promised ‘all-out war’, but ‘all-out gameplay’ isn’t even there, as evidenced by stories on social media of many players being unable to connect to servers.
The Battle Pass is now active, but to reduce the number of Data Persistence errors, we’ve temporarily restricted it from granting unlocks.
You’re still earning progression on the Battle Pass, and unlocks will be delivered once we’ve solved our other issues.

Quickly, the concern went up to the ears of DICE, and the teams were on the spot. Except that as a good black cat, Battlefield 2042 has once again brought bad luck to DICE studios who have encountered even more problems while trying to solve them through a permanent patch. Nevertheless, the teams are still faithful to the position and are currently trying to make this season 1 accessible to everyone! Let’s hope the players don’t hold it against them.
