[Update #2]: After over a year of requests, Battlefield 2042's Update 3.2 will finally bring back Classes.

If you were itching to get your hands on the futuristic Battlefield 2042, I have both good and bad news to deliver. The good news is that Battlefield 2042 has now fully launched onto both PC and consoles, while the bad news is that things are looking really rough so far, even compared to the usually rocky Battlefield launch.

As of right now Battlefield 2042 has a remarkably low user score of 24% on Steam. The main complaints seem to be centered on the plethora of bugs, wide-open maps with little cover, rough gameplay balance, as well as serious technical issues that can result in crashes or simply soft-lock your game.

So unless you're extremely eager to dive in, my recommendation would be to give DICE a couple of weeks, if not months, in order to get all of the issues squared away. Even if they don't manage to fix everything and some of the major problems continue to plague Battlefield 2042, at least the game will be a lot more stable technically, and that will go a great way towards easing some of the frustrations.
