EA/DICE Detail Their Commitment To Positive Play In Battlefield 2042
Bad behavior and cheating are bad, mm-k?
Electronic Arts and DICE want to make Battlefield 2042 "a positive, fair and welcoming experience for all players" when it launches later this year. To that end, the dev team posted an article today to explain its "commitment to positive play" that described several of the initiatives and procedures that would be in place during the upcoming beta and at launch.
First and foremost is the Community Charter, which lays out the "expectations for members of our community." These include treating others fairly, reporting rule-breakers, sharing appropriate content, and not promoting illegal activity. A fuller version of the Community Charter, which lays out those points in fuller detail and describes consequences for breaking the rules, can be found here.
Players are often left in the dark as to whether their actions result in any consequences for any miscreant they reported. That's something EA/DICE will change, in that they will notify a player when their report is received, and if it results in any discipline.
Under the "Fair Play" header, EA/DICE say that Easy Anti-Cheat will be implemented for the beta and launch, with an immediate auto-ban handed out if you're caught cheating. So yeah, don't do that.
In fact, there's a whole lot of "don't do X" in this article. Most of us shouldn't need to read it, but if you're one of the people who do read it and think "They just don't want us to have fun" or something similar, then I look forward to reporting you when I play.
As a final note, the article ends by saying that there won't be mouse and keyboard support for console at launch, but that's something that the team is "investigating."
