Battlefield V is seeing no further support due to the launch of Battlefield 2042. However, one thing to note is that the dropping player numbers for Battlefield 2042 shows that Battlefield V is competing with the game that superseded it. It remains to be seen whether updates to BF2042 will wrest the crown from BFV.
With the launch of Battlefield 2042, Battlefield V is no longer receiving updates, though the game’s population isn’t as dead as one would expect after the release of a new title. This is largely due to many of Battlefield’s fans being disappointed by the launch of Battlefield 2042.
Battlefield V’s last update was in 2020, and with the impending release of Battlefield 2042, it’s not looking like DICE intends to update it anytime soon. Despite the game’s lack of updates, it has a record number of players as Battlefield veterans flock to the title to get a taste of Battlefield gameplay before the release of the newest title.
Despite the sudden rush of players to BFV in anticipation of BF2042
, there have still been no new updates to the title since EA abruptly pulled the plug on its development. In spite of the lack of updates, people are still enjoying Battlefield V and they probably will be enjoying it for a long time to come. 2042 hacks
will also be released on November 19, 2021.
With the announcement of Battlefield 2042, players have flocked back to Battlefield V so that they can enjoy some of the classic war shooter’s vehicular and objective-based action. While the game hasn’t been updated recently, this resurgence of players has made it feel more alive than ever.
Ever since the Battlefield series started way back in 2002, the franchise has had a deep association with World War II. After all, Battlefield 1942 was the first game, and it and all of its expansions focused on the most destructive war in history. After that, Battlefield 1943 brought players a taste of World War II action.
However, with the release of Battlefield 5, Battlefield fans were able to return to the theaters of war that shaped the world as we know it in the present day. However, Battlefield 5 took a bit of a different approach than most World War II games by eschewing the typical theaters that you’d expect to see.
Things like D-Day and the Invasion of Okinawa were originally overlooked in favor of battles that other games never visited. In Battlefield 5, you fight in places like Norway, where World War II raged more fiercely than many people are even aware of, and these warzones make for some spectacular maps.
Due to its chronological proximity to Battlefield 1, BF5 also marks the return of a few weapons from DICE’s previous historical title, keeping things feeling familiar but slightly different. The gameplay and gunplay also feels similar to BF1’s, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing when you consider how tight that game’s gunplay was.
Of course, the release of Battlefield 5 was marred by controversy, though much of it has settled down since the game was first released. While people decried a lack of historical accuracy and blatant excuses to include microtransactions, the truth is that Battlefield’s core gameplay is relatively unharmed.
Battlefield 5 still combines intense infantry combat with awe-inspiring vehicles in a way that many other games fail to, and that’s what’s responsible for the game’s (and the series’s) charm. Since the game was released, it also received some much-needed updates that have kept it fresh.
The change to a live service model instead of one that is reliant on expansions means that all players have access to the game’s new maps instead of splitting the community with each DLC release. For example, the Pacific Theater was released to massive acclaim from the game’s community.
However, in spite of everything that Battlefield 5 has done right, the game still has a shadow that hangs over it due to its early controversy and a pervasive opinion that DICE is hemorrhaging talent. The only way to tell if BF5 is a true Battlefield to you is to play it and see how you feel about the game.
One of the things that’s shocking about Battlefield 5 is that DICE has decided to be a lot more transparent about how they address hacking and cheating in their game than many other developers. This is intended to give the community a feeling of comfort when it comes to the possibility of having hackers in their game.
Unfortunately for DICE, transparency about anti-cheat and effective anti-cheat are two entirely different things, and Battlefield 5’s anti-cheat is certainly not ironclad. We exploit opportunities in Battlefield 5’s code and its anti-cheat’s weaknesses to ensure that our hacks are as undetectable as possible.
Of course, the anti-cheat developers who work with DICE are smart, and they’re careful not to reveal too many tricks of their trade so that we don’t get clued in. That being said, we have a pretty good idea of how the game’s anti-cheat works and what we need to do to circumvent it.
The main anti-cheat that Battlefield 5 uses is Fairfight, which is the program that followed up Punkbuster from previous Battlefield titles. The main reason why DICE moved away from Punkbuster is because it was too unreliable, resulting in a lot of false positives and making life harder for regular players.
However, DICE is smart in that they don’t only rely on Fairfight to let them know that people are hacking in their games. They also have a team of people who sniff out hackers based on what they post on other sites, so be sure to never include your account name or email address in any post where you admit to cheating anywhere on the internet.
Along with automated systems and sharp eyes, DICE also checks to see if people are hacking using the in-game report system. While a single report likely won’t result in you getting banned for hacking, repeated reports will have DICE hot on your heels to see if there’s any veracity to other players’ claims.
If a DICE game master watches your gameplay and there are definite signs of you hacking, you can expect to receive a swift ban. This is one of the reasons why it’s so important to use features like aim smoothness and FOV if you’re going to use a Battlefield 5 aimbot without getting yourself caught.
