Battlefield 2042 is poised to launch 22 October, just a few short months from now, although it sounds like the DICE shooter is currently dealing with at least one "very repetitive" issue that could get old fast for players if it isn't addressed.
According to prominent Battlefield leaker Tom Henderson, much of the early feedback on the in-development shooter suggests that one of the game's big new features starts out cool, but eventually threaten to ruin the flow of the game.
Take a look at Battlefield 2042 in action below:
Henderson is referring to the tornadoes that can appear at random intervals anywhere on many of the game's massive maps. These are entirely unpredictable hazards that, in theory, are supposed to keep players on their toes and on the move as they constantly rush to find safe ground. Henderson claims that the tornadoes appear a little too frequently right now, however.
This feedback comes from multiple people and dates back a few months ago until the latest tests going on (now) - It could be the "spawn" rates of the tornadoes are turned up for testing and I'm assuming they will be adjusted accordingly before release.- Tom Henderson (@_Tom_Henderson_) July 13, 2021
This news comes with a couple of caveats, of course. The first is that Battlefield 2042 is still in development and being tested, so if the current feedback is that tornadoes are a bit too intense, this is very likely to be addressed before the game ever reaches the players. Ironing out these issues before release are also what beta tests are for, and we know Battlefield 2042 will be getting one of those ahead of release.
It's also worth noting Henderson says it's possible that the spawn rate of the tornadoes have been turned up specifically for testing. In either event, they're unlikely to pose much of a problem to players come October.
