The first main replace is coming to Battlefield V subsequent week alongside the the launch of the World War II sport’s Tides of War occasion. While the complete patch notes haven’t been launched but, developer DICE has began to supply some perception into what you may count on for this replace and ones to return on a further-out timeline.
Writing on Reddit, the studio mentioned one of many extra notable modifications has to do with the Time to Kill (TTK) and TTD (Time to Death) parts. DICE is observing that gamers are dying too usually/too rapidly, and are getting annoyed because of this. In the wake of this, DICE is “looking at how we can improve the experience for new players and veterans and alike.”
Next week’s Battlefield V replace will not embrace any modifications to TTK particularly, however DICE is wanting into modifications which may result in a “perceived” slower TTK by means of issues like netcode, injury suggestions, and different parts.
“We want to achieve gunplay balance where the experience is healthy, where latency is in a good place in order to improve consistency experience across all platforms including PC and console,” DICE mentioned. “We want to propose any TTK model changes to you, the community, and involve you in testing experimental changes with the goal of improving experience and create deeper gameplay potential.”
Core gameplay designer Le Bihan mentioned enhancing the TTK/TTD expertise is “one of our high priorities right now,” including that getting issues to a greater place includes “complex pieces that are being investigated…”
DICE is engaged on some new TTK measures, and it could roll the modifications out on a small pool of servers first, to match with the unique TTK formulation.
“It may be proposed to players in-game by rolling out the new TTK changes globally to all players connecting to any server, while adding a new playlist accessible through the server browser where players can play the old (or as it is, current) TTK to compare the two experiences,” Bihan mentioned.
As for modifications which might be coming to to Battlefield V subsequent week within the new replace, gamers can count on the revive mechanic to enhance for each the reviver and the revivee. “We identified a few delays that prevented players to get full control after the animation was completed–this is now resolved and will virtually make the reviving experience ‘faster.’ We want to see if what we are addressing improves the quality of the experience enough. Increasing the revive speed is something we still keep in mind but aren’t implementing just yet,” DICE mentioned
As for the weapon stability modifications, DICE is making a collection of modifications, which you’ll be able to see on the backside of this publish. Outside of these modifications, DICE confirmed that the flexibility to pull a downed teammate–a characteristic proven in trailers earlier than launch–won’t be included within the replace. “We are still investigating feasibility around this mechanic,” DICE wrote.
