007’s cars are almost as famous as the character, so Rocket League is set to welcome James Bond’s Aston Martin Valhalla to the Item Shop.

Similar to Fortnite, Rocket League has included a ton of pop-culture crossovers. James Bond’s classic Aston Martin DB5 arrived in July, but now Psyonix has confirmed that it will be crossing over with the 007 franchise once again.

With No Time To Die, the latest entry to the Bond franchise, dominating the Box Office, the Aston Martin Valhalla will arrive in Rocket League’s Item Shop alongside the classic DB5’s return.

This will be the first-ever hybrid car in Rocket League and comes with plenty of 007-themed accessories.

How to fix Battlefield 2042 Error Code 3:9001

Battlefield 2042 players have been unable to launch the game after the Error Code 3:9001 popped up, but we have a simple fix.

Battlefield 2042 devs have released the first update of 2022, but Update 3.2 has caused the frustrating Error Code 3:9001 which prevents Steam players from launching the game. But, we’ve got a simple fix for the issue.

Battlefield 2042 has been suffering from numerous bugs, glitches, and crashes, and DICE attempted to solve some of the worst offenders with January 20’s Update 3.2.

Unfortunately, this has caused the ‘Error Code 3:9001’ to pop up, preventing Steam users from launching the game.

Luckily, there’s a simple fix for the issue, so you can get back to playing Battlefield 2042 in no time.

While Battlefield 2042’s Error Code 3:9001 is frustrating, there’s an easy way to get around it by changing some settings within Steam.

Here’s how to get rid of Battlefield 2042’s 3:9001 Error Code:

  1. Open your Steam Library
  2. Right-click on Battlefield 2042
  3. Select Properties
  4. Select Updates
  5. Hit the drop down arrow underneath ‘Automatic Updates
  6. Select ‘Only update this game when I launch it
  7. Launch Battlefield 2042 through Steam

What appears to have gone wrong here was Steam didn’t automatically download the update for players, so the error code has popped up when players tried to launch an out-of-date version of Battlefield 2042.

However, setting the game to only ‘only update when I launch it’ will force the game to recognize and begin installing the update. Then, hopefully, you’ll be able to resume playing Battlefield 2042 as soon as the update’s over.

Battlefield 2042’s next update is scheduled for February, which finally brings a proper Scoreboard to the game. Then, Season 1 is expected to begin in March, bringing a new map.

Battlefield 2042 could go free-to-play after EA “very disappointed” with release

EA are reportedly considering a free-to-play model for Battlefield 2042 after its poor release and low player count.

According to reliable leaker Tom Henderson, EA are reportedly “very disappointed” with Battlefield 2042’s launch and are considering making the game free-to-play in some capacity.

The free-to-play model has been adopted by almost every publisher in the games industry, pulling in as many players as possible and then selling in-game cosmetics to rake in an incredible amount of money.

Microsoft made the incredible decision to make Halo Infinite’s multiplayer free-to-play, and Warzone, Fortnite, and Apex continue to dominate the shooter market.

Many expected Battlefield 2042’s Hazard Zone to be the free-to-play offering, but this wasn’t the case. However, it’s been reported that EA are considering adding a free-to-play element to the game after its disappointing launch.

Battlefield 2042 was one of the most anticipated shooters of 2021 but issues such as poor performance, the disappearance of the classic class system, and the controversial bullet spread mechanic turned away both new and returning players.

A declining player count has meant that 2018’s Battlefield V has had more players on Steam, and EA are reportedly “very disappointed” with how it has performed.

Industry insider Tom Henderson reported the news on January 20, claiming that EA are “looking at all options” with Battlefield 2042, which includes looking at free-to-play “in some capacity.”

It remains to be seen what this free-to-play model may look like, but Henderson said that he’ll reveal more information on January 21.

The community wasn’t convinced that going free would help Battlefield 2042, as the issues are rooted in the game itself. “Making it F2P will only give them another 10k players for like 2 weeks and then those players will leave,” said one player. “This game is gonna get ditched.”

“Sadly, I’m happy that they’ve admitted being very disappointed with it,” explained another popular leaker, TheMW2Ghost. “Hopefully that’ll shift the game in the right direction, and adding a **scoreboard** to the game isn’t seen as an incredible act of legacy feature implementation.”

DICE recently unveiled plans to add a proper Scoreboard to Battlefield 2042, and while fans were happy to see it return, they were shocked it was never there in the first place.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated with more information surrounding EA’s future plans for Battlefield 2042.
