Lol 😂 they never said those things will come till season 2 how do you create your own narrative?
Lmao the narrative is that they’ve made a big hubabaloo over a regular patch. Complete with a massive MID SEASON UPDATE title. Whoop-dee fucking doo.

I got to level 100 in this game over a month ago without buying a single tier. Shits whack yo.

I'm going to just go see how the campaign improvements look, and then get back to Cyberpunk 2077.

3 months for some bug fixes lol.

How much content do people think is going to come with season 2?

I'm (wishful) thinking 2-3 arena maps, 2 BTB maps at the very least.

Shame they went with a Free to Play model but still kept their traditional Halo content release schedule. I had hopes things would be different with monthly new maps planned.

I honestly wouldnt even expect much maps once Season 2 hits. I love the game and the franchise but its probably going to be a year or even 2 before it gets an acceptable amount of maps for my tastes.
