‘Battlefield 2042’ Kaleidoscope and specialist reworks arrive in update 1.2

‘Battlefield 2042’ maps and vehicles are getting big changes

Today (August 2) marks the release of Battlefield 2042’s 1.2 update, which comes with a slew of bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and some map reworks. 

EA has noted that the launch maps in Battlefield 2042 will undergo some changes following player feedback, with Kaleidoscope being the first major map to change with this update.

The map now has more cover for new flag positions, and an improved flow across the whole of the map.

“Cover has been added not only with the placement of new assets, but also in the raising of terrain to help break sightlines and let infantry move more purposefully around the map,” reads the blog post. “Most importantly, these new assets bring more tactical destruction which help to ensure that the map evolves throughout the duration of each round, and provide both attackers and defenders with new options when playing in key areas.”

A Forward Operating Base has been added to the map’s park, and a second command post near the Tower as well. The Data Centre now also has new cover points, and a war torn look has been added to certain areas to help with immersion.
