The next update has arrived to Battlefield 2042’s Portal and has changed up how the featured modes work, adjusting both the number of featured experiences and how often they refresh. This was announced on the Battlefield Direct Communication Twitter account, with it stating that the number of featured modes will be reduced from five to two, but they will refresh twice a week instead of once.
These adjustments have already taken affect, as the refresh occurred on Thursday, March 24th. The featured modes include 2042 TDM, 1942 vs 2042 Conquest, and Rush Hardcore. Afterwards, featured experiences will update twice a week, every Monday and Thursday.
In the Twitter thread, DICE explains the reasoning for the change is to put more focus on the game modes when they are featured by reducing the number that are shown at one time. DICE is also introducing a new Friday Night Battlefield experience, which will be available every Friday through Portal for a full 24 hours, with a new game experience available every week.
Despite the game’s strong sales, Battlefield 2042 has had a rough go of it. Over 220,000 players have signed a petition asking for a refund on the title. Meanwhile, DICE has released a number of patches to fix issues in line with player feedback, but it hasn’t changed the narrative around the game. EA has even stated that the game failed to meet its expectations in Q3.
