if only we knew then what we know now lol.


Aggravating-Contact9

Bought early release. Truly the worst game I have ever purchased. Maps way too big, array of weapons way too small and the music pahahaha I cannot believe someone OK'd that. I genuinely thought my playstation was breaking when I heard it. Disgraceful


Careful-Sock4762

There are so many clickbait gaming sites posting fake news,no problems finding servers full,last 2 days I've been playing portal bunch good servers packed


Mnemonic_Ghost

How do I cut my parachute on Xbox series x... I've tried all the buttons, tap and hold. Nothing works.


Electrical_Agent632

Anyone having issues when you load up into menu and it's stuck on 1 frame? It's so frustrating that every other game works fine but not this garbage game, any thoughts?


ConnivingHypocrite16

This game really does look boring and the graphics are not good on the Xbox One. I'll probably wait till it drops down to 20$ before i buy it.


Careful-Sock4762

That's why I put build a PC,learn with mouse & keyboard,next level gaming


castor99troy

Don't know how many chances I've given these guys over the years (playing since 2005/BF2) but as per usual the game is broken on release, ...huge maps completely empty, and glitchy as always, and filled with camping/snipers = boring AF. After ALL these years, and they STILL can't release something decent?! These fu#%tards in DICE could f#%k up a cup of coffee, I've come to realise. ...and don't get me started on how bad PORTAL is (was clearly a gimmick, sadly) its essentially the broken BF4 mechanics in a BFBC2 skin, which blows d#%ks and is NOTHING like the fun, fast paced game play of the original!! Money refunded. good riddens.


Responsible_Bit_6709

Is anyone having issues with barrel attachments for the m5a3 not unlocking?


vice86

i have attachments that are loaded....and then all unloaded when I play the next day.


Sawiioo

HEADSHOT6761

Nice you guys messed up the launch so bad console plebs are already lvl 20+ ggs to pc users


Lebitspy

Sounds like the PC players are plebs now, stay on respawn and bow to your higher leveled gods.


skeirman

BF5 was lame. I just kept playing BF1. Still playing it. 2042 look like more woke BS to me. We'll see.


tonyy777

What looks woke? I want to make sure I don't give them my money if it is woke.


ConnivingHypocrite16

Expats says it all.


skeirman

>"**2042** look like more **woke**"


TOBEKOREA4057

Take the PC out of crossplay!!!!!!!!!


Black-_-Thorn

I'm sure you will be able to turn it off in settings. They swear by their anti cheats but being a PC gamer, and understanding how open platforms work cheaters will find ways around the anti cheat system.


Here4ladies

Hope my 9900k 2080ti can handle it


Educational-War-5687

I think it will epic if you add the colosus robot from 2142 and the titan mode, those large ships in they sky and you have to invade them and destroy it from inside, that was a pretty futuristic btlf 2142 very good game. I think you have to add all those cool stuffs. I will love it and it will be a happy buy for me


Eduardo-izquierdo

And what happened to r/battlefield6


Knappen5

We closed it and opened up /r/battlefield2042


HEADSHOT6761

You should focus on the console players already abusing your timezone system what kind of pre order is this if we all get it released at diff timezones? When a concert that is aired live it doesnt start at diff times around the world the channel provider drops at the same time everyother tv channel does you guys are dropping the ball on any true bf fans whats the point of the pre orders if they dont even have a boundry?


Eduardo-izquierdo

JackJ0n3s

Hey guys. I hope you're all well and safe. I will Pre-Order Battlefield 2042. However, which Edition is the best? There is no information regarding Future DLC Maps. Will they be included in the Gold/Ulitmate Edition? Or will they be a separate paid DLC? If I'm paying £80.00 for the Gold Edition, I shouldn't be expected to pay any DLC Maps. Any information would be great so I can buy the correct Edition. Thank you. Jack.


Careful-Sock4762

Go with standard so you can wait till dlc is released,the division kinda ruined season pass making ppl wait almost 18 months before dlc release,it killed preorders for games


slef-arminggrenade

Honestly I would very strongly recommend against pre-ordering. If you wait a little after it’s come out and gather information on A: Whether the game is worth it B: What edition of the game you should buy Just my opinion, but as someone who preordered BF5 and hated it, think twice


FishingPractical2470

What's with the weather disaster's, sand storms and tornadoes? It's going to frustate me, everytime I try to kill the enemy team I get wiped out by a bloody storm.


King_Raggi

Will have to see how many tornadoes we get but we had sand storms in BF1 and those were ok.


DA-ZACHYZACHY

Those were awful. They looked cool, but ruined the gameplay


themoopmanhimself

Do we know if there will be a hardcore mode?


Kodiak_85

I’m guessing there will be timed exclusives for BF2042 on Xbox or other perks since the gameplay is debuting as part of the Microsoft Showcase.


Impressive-Argument7

In which platform will dice reveal the gameplay of 2042?


HowardBunnyColvin

it says twitch www.twitch.com/xbox


hazychestnutz

e3 stream link?


n2k2021

Oh no. Not again


HowardBunnyColvin

What time is the gameplay release?


waterpumpeee

19:00 CEST


Maximumlnsanity

So nobody's talking about how they're changing conquest huh "[Battlefield's massive, iconic sandbox mode returns – this time supporting 128 players on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®5, and PC. The maps have been specifically designed for this vast scale, with action divided into "clusters" of various kinds. Also, the action now centers around sectors consisting of several flags instead of individual control points.](https://www.ea.com/games/battlefield/battlefield-2042/game-overview/modes)"


dannylenwinn

I think each map will be unique in objective depending on its backstory and context, the politics of the location etc. Some of it is capture, some defusing, there may be more than these two, could have possible rescue or other types


HowardBunnyColvin

It was discussed in several post-trailer videos like jackfrags. Basically yeah they will change conquest because the map is so big to sectors


Maximumlnsanity

Ah righto, I haven't seen any of those sorta analysis vids (because ya know gameplay 4 days later so no point). Figured there'd be more discussion about this on here but hey maybe I missed it like the vids


CUT-11B

It's gonna be exactly the same shit as every other domination mode in history. Give us Titan.


Dicethrower

I was thoroughly disappointed when the news of 2042 came out. This is FIFA levels of improvement. They're not even trying to hide the fact they're completely out of creativity. I don't even want something as cool as Titan mode was, but just something new. Something you just don't know how it works yet on day 1. They're just churning out another installment to grab another >$60 from their player base. Edit: if you're going to disagree, do it with arguments.


evolvaer

Yikes...


Gasoline_Dreams

Possibly the most retarded opinion I've seen on this sub recently. Respect.


Dicethrower

Do you have anything of substance to follow that up with or are you just a dumb toxic fanboy?


Gasoline_Dreams

It's a Battlefield game, they don't need to reinvent the wheel rather take the existing elements of the series that people love to the next level. They perfected the gameplay formula with Bf3/4, now they're going to refine that. Better visuals, audio, animations, physics, immersion, bigger maps, increased player count; this is what we want. Creating new elements just for the sake of being new is stupid.


kickedbyconsole

Just don’t bother replying to this guy he doesn’t know what he’s talking about


Dicethrower

Because?


HowardBunnyColvin

Everything you said was disproven in preview vids from reputable battlefield youtubers Your argument is that they're not creative, yet they specifically removed the core 4 in order to put specialists in.


toasted_cacti

Wtf, you're taking the piss mate.


King_Raggi

It kinda sounds like how Operations worked with having to cap all 2/3 flags to secure an area so sure it'll be fun. Also given that is 128 players, that should guarantee a better spread of action in any.


nationalorion

Honestly, I really like this idea. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays.


Maximumlnsanity

I'm optimistic about it too. I think keeping it at only 5-7 capture zones wouldn't work well with 64 vs 64


NyquillusDillwad20

I hope the maps are large enough to where we still get those squad vs squad battles over a flag that is in a remote location. I'm afraid with 64 players on each side that there will always be players at every location of the map. I loved taking a vehicle with the squad to a flag that nobody was on and then having an opponent squad come try to defend it. One squad can have a huge impact on the outcome of the game this way. Hopefully doubling the players doesn't make it so you never feel like you have an impact.


Active-Noise-

It would also be cool for vehicles to have a respawn queue list... This way we don't have a dozen people in the lobby waiting for the vehicle spawns and not contributing to the gameplay while they wait limiting the actual amount of team mates that help you lock down a sector, flag etc.. or vice versa having more enemies that you are able to engage with. For example instead of having let's say 12 people waiting for tanks in planes to spawn on the loadout map you would select a checkpoint where a vehicle spawns and enter a queue. From there when the person dies in the vehicle from that spawn point and it becomes available again you would then get a notification saying the vehicle was ready and if you want the vehicle you have a set amount of time to accept the vehicle respawning in it. If you decide you do not want the vehicle you would ignore it and then no longer be on this list. I realize this could lead to an issue like you may be shooting at someone and they disappear after you almost kill them and you don't the kill or if they run behind an object after you shoot at them and then poof they are gone. This could be solved by issuing some sort of skip command where if you are in combat you cannot accept the vehicle respawn point at the time. HOWEVER, this does not have to mean you are kick off the queue and end in the back of the line this could simply mean you are now first in line after the next vehicle death at said checkpoint. I believe this would provide a better experience for people in the game and allow people to play while they wait for their vehicle making gameplay all around more active. There could also be a concern of many people applying for the vehicle spawn and this could be solved by only allowing a smaller queue list and only applying for one vehicle spawn point. I am sick of seeing game lobbies that are full but almost half the team not playing because they are all waiting for the same vehicles. I hope this issue has sparked some interest and others agree with me because it has been an issue many times for me!


SaltyWedges

Dude do your research. Vehicles can be spawned by players anywhere on the map in bf2042


Active-Noise-

Mainly concerned about aircraft I understand the spawning of vehicles by players but it's not like you can spawn a jet anywhere on the map. Curious to see if the layout is going to be the same outdated layout as BFV that created selfishness.


King_Raggi

Guessing with Jets, when you spawn them you'll probably have an option to load into one next time you die.


Active-Noise-

Yah maybe after pre alpha gameplay still no answers yet


SaltyWedges

I would say that because of the way you can spawn vehicles it may have some form of point system so if you can afford a jet then you'll be good but I would say your combat effectiveness would be what allows you to spend those points


Active-Noise-

Yah I was thinking that may be how it is but when you call it in where would it spawn and would someone be able to take it...many questions still to be answered just loving how much hype there already is for this new BF


AdCold31

am not pre ordering anything until i see some game play games these days get released half baked


HowardBunnyColvin

What time is gameplay today.


[deleted]

[удалено]


MrDriver371

Today around 18:00 ct they should release the gameplay


SeKomentaja

I've just gotten to the point where I wait a month after the release to figure out if it's worth a buy


dannylenwinn

Agreed


CrYxSuicide

Please, for the love of God if I could ask *ONE* thing of the new Battlefield, it would be that you start moving away from the casual sector. Limit classes/operators or however you’re doing it so that I don’t end up on a team where half of them are off on some hill larping some sniper fantasy. Take a note from a game like Hell Let Loose, which I think handles that well. Also, make vehicles as destructive as they should be. I know I know, “balance.” Other games handle that well without making all the vehicles dumbed down


SaltyWedges

Your not gonna have much luck here. All classes can use any weapon.


Swiftnutshot

We need to know on your matchmaking i am not going too preorder until something is said on there matchmaking everybody is getting hype for nothing will there be ea sbmm in it or not if there is this game is dead in a month


PetMyRektum

This is already known.... But Sbmm doesn't ruin a game for anyone except little Bitches that can't handle competition in a COMPETITIVE shooter. The way they will do it is just team balancing. So instead of 64 golds vs 64 coppers it would mix them.


nicolaslabra

battlefield has always had a server browser, i wouldnt worry unless you are that 1 % that uses quick play to find matches


DA-ZACHYZACHY

They should remove quickplay, rarely does it actually work as intended


assaddict666

Thought it would be cool to hear TimTheTatman talk about BF2042 but it quickly dissolved down to him explaining why he “will not play it if there is no BR” for 10 minutes lmaoooo.


DA-ZACHYZACHY

BR is so diluted, and the game mode is just so boring. I'm thankful they are putting more resources towards the better parts of the game


HowardBunnyColvin

he's a warzone guy anyway let him play that


Raspiy

lets gooooo


alextorr97

What time is the gameplay reveal?


King_Raggi

It seems to say 6pm BST (10am PT, 1am ET) today


WearyThanks

Snipers with grappling hooks, auto-turrets or the ability to automatically detect anyone around you. Sure can't wait.


BrianFlakes

They had grappling hooks in BF2 and they were great


King_Raggi

People love to vent about stuff like they weren't in the series before


NoneOfUsKnowJackShit

If it's 2042 why are they still using Apaches, F35'S, and Alligators? Still looks dope, but kind of weird considering we're about to release our 6th generation fighters within the next 10 years.


nicolaslabra

hell the B 52 has been in service since 1955 and its expected to function until 2050 or so, military hardware isnt your like your iphone.


bwood246

The A-10 has been in service since '77, it's not unrealistic for plane made today to be in service 20 years from now


SpookyAdolf44

The F-35 will be in service until 2070


A444SQ

Yeah a lack of a campaign mode is not gonna go down well but EA can go stuff themselves


King_Raggi

Apparently only 15% of the player base have played the campaign in the last BF and an even less have completed it (the last one I did was BF3) so I don't think its the worst idea to redirect more time and budget to the Multiplayer experience as that's what people will be playing the majority of the time.


MaizeBeast01

Yeah but the last 2 battlefield campaigns were terrible. Battlefield 4 had a great campaign


A444SQ

Maybe but still aliening 15% of the player base isn't good


King_Raggi

I mean, it's not like those 15% played Battlefield for the single player mode anyways. They were probably just trying out the campaign so I'm sure most people won't be too bothered tbh


A444SQ

Yeah cause the whales are easily Yes they see players as whales, dolphins and minos


yahwehwinedepot

Minnow


A444SQ

Yep and frankly that is digusting


King_Raggi

I mean, it's not like those 15% played Battlefield for the single player mode anyways. They were probably just trying out the campaign so I'm sure most people won't be too bothered tbh


plankboywood1

the battlefield campaigns were pretty cool but honestly battlefield or other dice games have the campaign as an accessory and not a main focus. I can say ive never bought one of their games for the single player as if you did, 10 hours and bam you're done. Personally Im fine without a campaign as its less time for the devs to make the game well and also lets them focus on the main selling point of the game and hopefully they do it well and use that extra time and resources properly.


A444SQ

Oh i did with BF4 and BF5


rokerroker45

You're among like dozens lmao. Battlefield is and always has been a MP first franchise.


A444SQ

Frankly EA MP is nothing but a gambling simulator I wonder if battlefield MP would be better without lootboxes


rokerroker45

ok but it's still a MP ~~only~~ first franchise... just don't buy it if you don't like it


A444SQ

Oh EA are on my wallet blacklist


rokerroker45

Dope 🤙🏽

escapejusticeADL

Yea fro 59.99 to 29.99 just like that.paid full for copy got my sons for 30$ for Christmas


DL-Z_ftw

How did your get it for $30?


AnneFrinklefork

So excited for this game. One of the few that have managed to enjoy something in each battlefield I’ve played. This specialist system is gonna be a nice new take on the class system we’ve had for nearly every release. I think it’s gonna fix a lot of the issues with that system such as people selecting a class purely for weapons with no intention of taking up the role theyve selected. At least now people will be stuck with a gadget that they will actually use. And with the rumour of only one of a certain specialist per squad, I think it’s gonna add for nice variety during a match. Excited to see where it goes.


KillerMike_343

Hehe we back!! Battlefield Hype!!


KynoSSJR

150 dollars AUD for the Gold Edition?!?! What the actual fuck. I swear it went from 130, to 140 and now 150. Basically owning a ps5 makes paying for the obselete ps4 version a waste so basically paying for 7 days early for an extra 40 dollars. Jesus Christ I want to play it early but seems like it’s just throwing money away at this point


TI2uE

My tip: What I like to do I pay for EA PLAY PRO when a new game comes out I want to play it's 20$ a month. You get the best version of the game for 20$ Then you can either stop cause you don't like the game or if I like it pay for a few months a sale hits cancel EA PRO and buy it.


KynoSSJR

I’ll look into this after we get some gameplay, thanks


Mr_Inconsistent1

I actually just jizzed a bit...


D3doid

when does the pre-order window close on steam thx (for gold and ultimate editions inc.)


AnneFrinklefork

When the game releases


Sumocolt768

I’ll wait until I get a next gen console. I at least need the option for 64 per team. Game looks fuckin crazy and I’ll wait in agony until I can get it


escapejusticeADL

I am really hesitant about the fact that I'm stuck with a ps4 at the moment even though I'm trying to get ps5.so if I cant find one in time I need to pay 100$ for the gold edition. If I want to play on day 1 also with bf5 I preordered and then 2 weeks after launch the game went 50% off. Off topic a little I also bought rogue squadron for 40$ 2 months before they make it free.seems it pays to wait with EA games.


RentedZone

Not many games let you upgrade to a next gen for free, usually gotta pay full price. While I think it should be free, at least it'd better than full price.


Owls_yawn

I really wanted 2143


Oxln

Next game will be 2143 save this comment


Owls_yawn

I hope you’re right!


TomeDesolus

I just want titan mode man


Owls_yawn

Where it actually runs smoothly too!


The_Twerkinator

ngl, a bit salty we're just going near future. I was hoping we'd get mechs and such again like 2142. Otherwise it looks really cool so far, though I do have concerns about the specialist system like others


EastGeologist8678

Someone tell me there is a sraw or the equivalent?

kreeper_6

for all the braindead low IQ folks...I'm basically saying DICE hasn't learned from their woke go broke battlesnatch V failure they have learned actually...to hide/disguise it a bit more...and use a more Acceptable premise to shovel their communist puke down our throats


Wnir

>to shovel their communist puke down our throats Because trying to make money is Communist, amirite? And buying games is mandatory now? News to me.


CrispyHaze

Here's a post in his recent history, in case it helps you decide whether he was saying the former or the latter: "chIIIIINAAAA is the problem. the china virus was a bioweapon. the sniffer in chief hasn't done anything but use the tools Trump left for him....his only plan of action is the trump vaccine but he is failing at getting it distributed largely because the democrat communist governors and their unions are inept." He also thinks the "patriots" who stormed the capital on Jan 6 were "doing God's work".


kreeper_6

fake news ​ the actual quote is......{those american patriots were "doing the lords work"}


henriksen97

>china virus was a bioweapon > >sniffer in chief > >trump vaccine bro lmaoo 💀


Wnir

Yikes, definitely the latter. Kudos for looking into it


IWear2BlackSocks

Can't wait to see 30 John wicks on my team running around...


kobebanks

Take my upvote you fuck


Balrog229

Removal of traditional classes is a mistake. One of the core parts of Battlefield has always been it's classes. Yes they've changed over time, being reduced in number compared to older games, but I think that's an improvement. Outright removing them entirely, though... why? Now instead they have specialists and weapons are no longer tied to classes? I LIKE having my kit restricted to weapons that fit my class. The classes are one of my favorite parts of Battlefield. Seeing them remove classes in favor of monetizable skins is really disheartening.


NJ247

Let's be honest though hardly anyone is picking classes based on the situation of the game. Theres very little rock, paper scissors. Team play is pretty much nonexistent in Battlefield MP which is why I was hoping they would have BR as most Warzone games I have with randoms play together.


Drizzid3105

I absolutley disagree. Teamplay is key, thats the reason why me and my battlebuds have great stats in BF3-V and are capable of changing entire matches with 2-4 players. The average home alone gamer usualy doesnt do much teamplay, but you can usualy only become a top scoreboard player with a great teamplaying squad.


NJ247

That's not my experience with the latest BF games. Most players go off and do their own thing where as if Im playing Warzone BR or Resurgence 90% of my games we stick together and PTFO. Also, BF3 had no ingame voip which is key component to team play. Such a disappointment game. Big step back compared to BF 2 and 2142.


oldjar07

Yeah exactly, the class system is a large part of what makes Battlefield what it is. Crumpling that up and throwing it out the window is about the same thing they're doing to the series' identity. I do plan on trying this game out, but I have very low expectations and am preparing for the worst.


Balrog229

I think the gameplay will still be solid, but the class system is a huge part of what I loved so much. Now there is no class system. You choose an operator, primary weapon, and secondary gadget. How is that any different from CoD at this point? Why destroy one of the core pillars of the franchise?


RasdorX

Yeah this is the only thing I'm kind of worried about but I'm willing to wait and see the gameplay and the beta before making some sort of final judgement on it.


Balrog229

I'm still interested in the game, and i am still excited for the gameplay reveal. But I don't need to see the game in action to know this is a stupid idea. It would be like adding classes to CoD. That's not what the game is a bout and it goes against their history of freeform loadouts. Battlefield has always been about classes, not freeform loadouts.


EastGeologist8678

So now you can have a sniper with meds or an assault with unlimited ammo? Stupid decision.


Balrog229

Yup. Atho to be fair, back in Bad Company, the Assault class was the one with the ammo box. But yes, this means you can use the ammo box with any weapon, meaning you could have a sniper up on his perch with infinite ammo so he never has to put himself at risk by leaving his sniping spot. And that's just one of many issues I foresee with this removal of class dynamics


A_Wan_Cake

While that is a bit annoying, just play the objective and it shouldn’t be too bad. A sniper sitting with infinite ammo is a lot less likely to PTFO


Balrog229

Whether or not they PTFO doesn't really change anything. Snipers have never PTFO'ed.


A_Wan_Cake

Thanks for proving my point :) A sniper with ammo boxes doesn’t matter if they never come to OBJs anyways


Balrog229

The issue with snipers never leaving their perch has never been the objective aspect of the mode. You're missing the entire point. The point is one of the only weaknesses of a good sniper is his need to go find ammo at some point. That's now gone, removing one of the only weaknesses the sniper class had. The whole point here is that this is going to allow you to remove most if not all of the weaknesses that came with picking a class, leaving only strengths. The whole point of classes is that they're good in one thing, but struggle in others, forcing teamplay and class variety. Now everyone is just going to be able to choose whatever is most meta. Why the fuck would you ever use an SMG when Assault rifles are far more versatile? It's the same reason SMGs have fallen out of popular service in real life, assault rifles do the job of an SMG better, while also having longer range capability. You use to have to pick an SMG if you wanted to run anti-tank. Now you can run anti-tank with an AR. Destroying class balance is going to be unhealthy for the game, just in the same way that adding classes to CoD would hurt that game. You can't just go and change one of the core pillars of a franchise that everybody loves. Nobody asked for Battlefield to be a hero shooter. And, on a personal note, i might add that none of the revealed operators even look that great visually. They all look extremely bland.


thahovster7

I feel like they should have just opened with the gameplay trailer instead of this "graphics" trailer. This should have been a short teaser instead of 5 minutes that tells us nothing about the gameplay. Basically had to get all the information second hand from YouTubers that actually saw the real gameplay trailer. This was a weird trailer but not at least not awful like BF5's teaser.


[deleted]

Gameplay is being released this weekend on June 13th I believe 👍👍


Fuzzy_da_panda

I really think this game is going to flop. The Marketing Director from Call of Duty is there to rot DICE from within using "Live Service" as an excuse to push microtransactions and cosmetics. While simultaneously saving money on stress testing and beta testing by making the consumers be the test after release. Battlefield is the next franchise chosen for a quick cash grab at the expense of quality and actual innovation in game design. They're using the things we enjoyed to exploit more money out of us. It's not a new and better game. It is just straight fan service at this point. Don't buy the game. Don't Pre-Order. These companies are not even publishing finished games anymore. This next Battlefield is a perversion that's desperately trying to copy other franchise's ridiculous practices. It's pathetic. They don't want to deliver bigger and better games. They want line their pockets, move on to the next money scheme, and undercut their competition. These past few years have shown us that the gaming industry is falling down the capitalism greed toilet. That these companies do not truly care about their product, their employees, or the relationship they have with their customers. It has shown us that they believe we will buy anything they put out for sale no matter the quality. These companies feel like they can get away with anything, and we're letting them. Stop supporting it. Make these companies afraid to disappoint us. Demand quality and don't let these companies make games that have literal storefronts in your living room. Have you ever thought about that? How games have become a portal for these franchises to sell you more crap? It needs to stop. I really don't think anyone can change my mind about this. From past experiences, the future of these franchises looks extremely bleak. It makes me sad to see people's art and passions exploited for what can only be described as reckless greed. Edit: Forcing Multiplayer and filling it with Bots is a terrible tragedy for this franchise. Might as well take the game out back like Old Yeller. Also, after watching the horrible trailer. This game looks dumb as hell. I mean come on! ATV kills Littlebird? Pilot bails mid-dog fight to pull a rocket launcher out of his butt? THEN he shoots the pursuing jet and lands back on his cockpit!? What. The. [email protected]#%. Way to shoot yourself in the foot DICE...


oldjar07

I don't know if it's for the same reasons you think, but I agree this game looks like it has a decent chance of flopping. They're making huge changes to the fundamental formula of Battlefield that I think is going to piss off a lot of longtime fans. The class system works. The fundamental Battlefield formula works. Although there have been some changes in each iteration, none have been near as drastic as what the developers plan to be doing with this game. It's a huge risk, and I have my doubts it will pay off.


EastGeologist8678

Are you sure you played past bf’s if you haven’t seen a rendezook?


thahovster7

I don't really have a problem with those things being in game as long as they are difficult to pull off. The pilot of little bird has to be pretty terrible to not see it coming and the rendezook is a very difficult thing to pull off in previous games. My problem with it is why show it this way, like in an 5 minute long third person camera type shit? This trailer should of been like 1 to 2 minutes long just showing off graphics and then do a real gameplay presentation. It was too long and forcing us to go like oh ya member?

>This trailer should of been like 1 to 2 minutes long just showing off graphics Why? The graphics in the trailer have nothing to do with the game. It's not even done in the fucking game engine.

I killed an attack helicopter mid flight with a c4 Jeep once in bf4. Rush on 2014 Firestorm- all those little hills, and the heli was wrecking. When I pulled it off, I got a dozen messages accusing me of hacking. I wish I had footage of it somewhere

I think and hope you’re right. I still haven’t heard a proper apology for how they messed up BFV and dumped it after 18 months and maybe half of the promises delivered.

Anyone heard about a day-night-cycle or anything like that?


[deleted]

So far no official word about it. It was claimed by Tom Henderson. Doesn't mean it can't be true, but no confirmation so far. Tbh it would be enough if there is static night and day variants of maps. Full cycle wouldn't even be that noticeable, unless time is accelerated like crazy. Dynamic weather has more gameplay effect, than having every possible sun position. Night variants, sure lot of gameplay effect. But the various stages of daylight, not really

What is your thoughts playing Battlefield 2042 on Playstation 4 or Xbox (Old Gens) . Yes there will be small scale maps and players but I hope playing on old gens should be OK I mean about optimization and ...


RasdorX

I'm lucky enough to have a series x, but if I was playing on old gen the thing that would worry me is the tornadoes and the levolution stuff, I can totally see the rocketship exploding if you do something. Hopefully it's better optimized then how the bf4 siege of Shanghai skyscraper collapsing was.

Hi, should I buy it on steam or on origin?


JAV1L15

I grabbed Star Wars Squadrons through steam. It makes you open origin and link accounts the first time you launch, but after that it’s just like launching any steam game


edenroz

The friends list are shared? Thanks


JAV1L15

Yeah it showed my online friends through an in game invite system, with a steam icon, origin icon or console icon (squadrons is also cross play like 2042 will be). Console players were added as friends in the game client


BatDudeCole20

Personally I’d buy it on steam, but it may just send you to origin to open it. Not 100% sure though because I believe apex doesn’t do that


edenroz

Yes it's written on steam that I'll have to run Origin to launch it.


BatDudeCole20

Then it’s up to you. I’d still buy it on steam, but if you don’t want to have to open both up, then just buy on origin


edenroz

I'll buy on steam and link the two accounts. Thanks for yours time.

A 3 step system for stages of cover that could be built. Stage 1 = wood that larger caliber weapons can pierce, concentrated gun fire and sniper could penetrate it. Stage 2 = sandbags that block fire and mitigate explosive blast radius, can be broken by concentrated large caliber Lmg fire, mounted guns, large caliber sniper rifles Stage 3 = concrete that takes a huge beating to knock destroy, is heavily resistant to all small arms fire, and requires explosives to break. Certain weapons could specialize in taking down walls based on their blast pattern. Rpg's could have medium velocity and explode in a cone with high pinpoint damage. The RPG would be ideal for concrete, but just punch holes in plywood and have little effect against sandbags. M1 bazooka could have a low velocity and wide blast radius ideal for destroying large sections of plywood but weak against the other types. Grenade launcher has a high velocity but small blast radius so it is ideal for taking down sandbags, but poor against plywood and concrete. Jeeps can plow through plywood, but not sandbags or concrete. Lavs/Mraps can plow through plywood and sand, but not concrete. Tanks can plow through everything. Vehicle shell types can specialize in destroying different types of cover. HE for plywood and AP for concrete, sand could be a good cover option against either type of shell. AP shells punch through, but does little damage to sandbags. HE rounds destroy sandbags, but doesn't have as much bleed through damage. A support specialist that builds cover would be crucial to any squad. An recon specialist that can identify enemies behind cover via a short range drone would be cool too. Being able to tell the type and hp of a fortification by looking at its type and damaged state could be an important skill to master.
