Here’s some initial details of the upcoming changes that are coming to Battlefield gamers. According to the devs post, “these are just one part of a bigger list of updates that we are going to release very soon” and will require server downtime when available.
For the moment, the “one part of a bigger list of updates” includes:
• One of the Insignia’s requiring an unobtainable Bronze star for the tracer dart – requirement removed.
• Hit registration changes brought over from MOH to BC2; several bugfixes, the client< ->server send rates have been increased, some of the hitboxes themselves have been changed. This will increase the accuracy of guns, but will not make much of a difference to the knife.
• Removed the blue box behind the chat window.
• The 2-second immunity when spawning/being revived can will now be immediately removed either by firing, zooming, or any movement (move, crouch, jump). Merely looking around will not remove the invulnerability. In essence: If a person moves, he is never invulnerable.
• 3D vision fixed.
No details yet about a launch date, but with the Vietnam expansion scheduled to drop sometime soon, it’s probably not unreasonable to expect this around about the same time.
