According to reliable leaker Tom Henderson, Battlefield 2042 devs have resubmitted the Day Zero patch to include more bug fixes for the game’s early-access release on November 12.

Battlefield 2042’s November release is rapidly approaching and almost everything about the game has now been revealed, including the Specialists, maps, and modes. Players got their hands on the Beta in October which gave the devs a ton of feedback to work with for launch.

DICE confirmed a bunch of bug fixes and tweaks, including buffing aim assist, but they don’t seem to be done there. The devs have reportedly resubmitted the Day Zero patch to include even more fixes.

A Day Zero patch is often a pre-launch update that fixes bugs and other issues that weren’t addressed before the game was shipped to manufacturers. This patch should download alongside your game, but it could also arrive later on Day One.

Battlefield 2042 officially launches on November 19, but players can get a week of early access by pre-ordering the Gold and Ultimate editions. November 12 will be the game’s Day One, and DICE appears to be prepared.

Industry insider Tom Henderson reported that DICE have resubmitted the Day Zero patch to include even more fixes.

“The Battlefield 2042 day 0 patch has been resubmitted for first party certification to include more fixes to the game,” tweeted Tom Henderson on October 28. “The game wasn’t denied certification (bounced) but instead the developers wanted to include more fixes to the Day 0 patch.”

Henderson hasn’t revealed the exact fixes the Day Zero patch will include but confirmed it’ll be issues such as bugs, optimizations, and balance tweaks. The example he was shown was “a shadow flickering bug on a specific map being fixed.”

How the full game will run remains to be seen, but it appears that DICE are proactively keeping on top of bugs that might spoil the launch.
