It's April 2022, And Battlefield 2042 Is Finally Getting VoIP

While you would think that a blockbuster multiplayer shooter featuring up to 128 players at a time would be built entirely upon voice communication, ever since its launch last year Battlefield 2042 has not allowed players to chat via VoIP. That’s finally about to change.

Yes, as incredible as that intro was to type out, especially given the importance VoIP has played in previous games in the series, for months the only way 2042 players have been able to communicate with one another has been through leaving pings on the map or chatting with squad/teammates via text chat.

It will also add a scoreboard to the end-0f-game results section, mercifully providing some more context and detailed information than simply subjecting 128 people to hearing “THAT’S HOW IT WORKS OUT SOMETIMES” over and over again.

Also included in the update are some other much-needed fixes, like:
