Battlefield V: Defying the Odds chapter

Dice and EA will be rolling out yet another Battlefield V update this week, as the former wrote that the Defying the Odds 1.2 hotfix is currently pending certification. It should, among other things, address Xbox One crashing issues.

According to their Reddit post on Battlefield V subreddit, which laid out the timeline for this week's content, Dice will be posting the overview of Week 3 of Chapter 4: Defying the Odds, as well as the notes and availability info of the Update #1.2 on Wednesday, 10 July 2019. 

So far, Xbox One crashing seems to be the main focus, as Dice wrote, "We're working on deploying Hotfix 1.2 this week to address the stability issues affecting Xbox One players."

Also reported were some issues with invisible soldier skins and Al Sundan on Conquest, and while Dice insist that this and Xbox crashing are the top priorities they're currently working on, it isn't clear whether these fixes will make the 1.2 hotfix. "We'll keep you posted as we get updates from the team", they wrote.

Judging from the provided timeline, Battlefield V players should be getting the 1.2 update by Thursday, 11 July 2019, provided it's passed the certification procedure.

Thursday will also bring the Battlefield V Quality of Life Tracker Update, where Dice and EA monitor the progress in making their shooter run as smoothly as possible.

Dice also reminded players that they've got until Wednesday evening to get their Weekly Mission Reward, so they advise them to "give the ToW Mission a final push if you haven't completed it yet."

Battlefield V's weekly community highlight is set for Tuesday as well, with a "hot new OIB moment coming in with a new weekly winner", which should help pass the time until the hotfix.

For what it's worth, Battlefield V's Xbox One issues seem to be pretty selective, as some players seem to be enjoying the game with no issues whatsoever, while others are constantly crashing out, as you can see for yourself from the flurry of responses on Dice's Reddit post .
