DICE will be unveiling gameplay for Battlefield 2042’s Season 1: Zero Hour later today. In the meantime, it’s released patch notes for update 1.0.0, which goes live today. Some highlights include improvements to the soldier gameplay with “overall smoother animations and movement”; updated netcode for improved bullet hit registration; new XP events; increased vehicles for Conquest; and much more.

Other changes include online IDs being displayed in the rewards screen when VoIP is on and a fix for players being switched out of a team or squad if they’re in a party. Some of the new XP events can also occur with Takedown kills, claiming a control panel, providing smoke for teammates or reviving them and so on. Reviving, healing, repairing and resupplying squadmates also gives more XP.

Check out some of the patch notes below. The next update is currently slated for early July and will provide various fixes and changes. Battlefield 2042 – Season 1: Zero Hour reportedly goes live on June 9th (as per insider Tom Henderson). We should learn more about the new content – which is currently confirmed to include one new map – soon so stay tuned.
