General Alerts


High CPU Load - PC - AWARE  @ 6/12 09:00 UTC

Season 3 and more recent updates continues to work towards improving Game Performance on PC. Battlefield 2042 is a Live Service title, and we’ll always work towards addressing any points of feedback throughout the lifespan of the title.


In general, we’re seeing we’re now seeing a positive increase in performance. However, we do still see some reports of stability issues.  


Workaround: As the game is now better optimized to draw resources from the CPU, if you notice throttling then try increasing your in-game visual quality settings and resolution to instead switch some of that load over to your GPU. We encourage playing around with your Settings to find out what works best for your specific system.



The details listed in this article may change as we listen to community feedback and continue developing and evolving our Live Service & Content. We will always strive to keep our community as informed as possible. NO WEAPON, MILITARY VEHICLE OR GEAR MANUFACTURER IS AFFILIATED WITH OR HAS SPONSORED OR ENDORSED THIS GAME
