Overall, there are quite a few bug fixes, and less new additions in the 1.48 patch. However, if this improves stability, which I’m sure it will, then I’m betting that the players will be happy with it.
As for season’s 3 new content, you can make the argument that not much interesting was added in the game. Obviously, there are a lot of additions, but not as much as you might expect with a new season.
Nonetheless, at the time of writing, not much time has passed to make a conclusion, as not much of the new content has been uncovered yet. Be careful out there, solider!
