Battlefield 5 Will Have “More features. More extras. More destruction;” No Military Adviser for BF4

The massively anticipated and hyped Battlefield 4 is just around the corner, but what does the future hold for the series? Will there be a Battlefield 5? And how will it be? EA DICE Producer Patrick Bach dropped some hints, also explaining that there are no military advisers for Battlefield 4, as authenticity took a back seat to fun.

More Fish AI confirmed.

Call of Duty will be dethroned in 2015.

EA should consider skipping BF5 and bring in BC3. Also, I wish they were to remake Desert Strike. Same mechanics but with muuuuccchhh better graphics. I used to love it back in Sega Genesis days!

Off topic: I am a huge Sega hardware fanboy. Am I alone? Say Hi to me if you'd proudly call yourself a Sega console fanboy :D Would love to make some new friends who experienced the golden age of gaming!

I'm sure bf6 will have even more of the article mentioned

I'm just happy with 64 players at 60 fps 900p up scaled to 1080 for ps4.

While I'll still buy BF4 (probably wait for the $30 gamestop deal if true though) the core BF series might be dead to me. I've been playing it since 1942 and was scared after BF3 that it would be going in this direction.

Don't get me wrong BF3 was a good game and I put a decent amount of time into it (as BF4 will probably be too). It's just becoming a little too generic for me to consider them TRUE Battlefield successors.

I blame it on EA though. Pretty sure they saw the COD $ train and said "Dice do that or else!"

And WTF do you think military advisors are going to do for a game that is not really realistic? Leave that for Arma (No, I'm not hatting on Arma. I love the game and have put over 200 hours into the Arma 3 alpha/beta/full game).

For the love of god Dice, just don't screw up BC3 or Battlefront and we can call it even.

It's just EA being EA. I gave up on them sometime ago, eventually everybody will too :/

Feralkitsune1007d ago

What exactly is wrong with BF4? I felt BF4 was way more of a BF game just from the beta than BC-BF3.

0ut1awed1007d ago (Edited 1007d ago )

^^

I'm just judging the beta here but I'm confused on how you could NOT see how similar BF4 is to BF3.

There are very few differences I notice. Commander mode, better water technology, and skyscraper destruction that is completely predefined so it isn't actual real time.

All the other additions are miniscule. Even the art style is basically the exact same.

I'm just not sure how you see the game being so drastically different when such small changes are made in comparison.

BISHOP-BRASIL1006d ago

I'm not wading in as I have not played the beta that much, but that whole skycrapper destruction... It's not even new, just scripted destruction of a large object, like the antenna tower in Caspian Border (but, obviously, much more detailed)... I don't get the hype there either.

nsignific1006d ago

@bishop-br the difference being the scyscrapper event SIGNIFICANTLY changes the level layout, whereas the caspian border tower only removes a single sniping spot.

Matt6661006d ago

well said man and I think Dice would do even better if they didn't gave EA breathing down there necks.

Feralkitsune1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

"I'm just not sure how you see the game being so drastically different when such small changes are made in comparison."

DUH it's similar it's a game in the same series. But, it also improved on a ton of stuff that BF3 did wrong. The classes make a ton more sense, the maps seem to be a great deal better than the vanilla maps in BF3, the bullets aren't rubberbanding like crazy,ability to lean over, or around cover, weapons are deadly once again and don't feel like rubber bullets. The vehicles control a great deal better, battlelog can be accessed in game now. Movement feels much less floaty, you can counter knives from the front, they made it harder for snipers to run around and snipe (unless the remove the scope all together), all in all most things are majorly improved over BF3.

Graphics are not what make a shooter what it is, and it seems that the only thing you can criticize is the art style, so I can't take your criticism as anything but Ad Populum.

I was one of the people who was highly critical of BF3, but they really have made a much better game this time around from what I played in the outdated beta.

0ut1awed1006d ago (Edited 1006d ago )

Most if not all of the stuff you reference is stuff that could be added in via DLC, hints why I compared it to COD.

Battlelog isn't any different for me, the whole game still runs through the game browser (on the PC). Leaning around corners seems like a useless addition. I never once found myself in a intense firefight where I actually took up the time to use it. It just doesn't flow into gameplay well enough to actually use it. The vehicles seem to control pretty much the same to me as do your character models but I guess that's my opinion. I always play hardcore and given the absence of hardcore in the beta, it actually felt like the bullets were made out of rubber in BF4 in comparison.

And just for the record, I didn't disagree with you. It takes a troll statement for me to actually hit the disagree button.

Hey now EA has Titanfall setup for 2014, Battlefront for 2015, and Bad Company 3 for 2016. BF5 won't come until 2017 on Frostbite 4.0.

FunkMacNasty1006d ago

I hope so, but this line had me worried: "there are no military advisers for Battlefield 4, as authenticity took a back seat to fun".

If authenticity truly does take a backseat to fun, then Battlefield will, over the course of a few more installements, just become another brainless, mindless, casual shootfest full of jerks who don't know how to play the game.

I'm sorry but the brainy strategy, tactical team-play,is REALLY what sets Battlefield apart.

*More more more! How do you like it, how do you like it? More more more!*

More is always good.

imXify1007d ago

Calm yo tits Dice. Release BF4 and then we'll talk.

Pandamobile1007d ago

He was answering a question from an interviewer...

TheSsus1007d ago

Agreed. Much rather hear about Battlefront 3 and Mirrors Edge 2.

Globox20121007d ago

Battlefield will eventually take the crown, Unless CoD comes out roaring after Ghosts. Will be interesting to see.

InTheZoneAC1007d ago

too me BF took the crown when 2 came out, regardless of CoD...

Riderz13371007d ago

I want BF Bad Company 3...

Hufandpuf1007d ago

I want battlefield 2143

xc7x1007d ago

i too want BFBC3,but i thought original director / producer moved on elsewhere,so i suspect it'll be another BF3-BF4 clone if thats the case :-\

JBaby3431006d ago

I agree with you guys. I loved BC and BC2 but was pretty let down with Battlefield 3. It felt like COD with vehicles to me. The whole feel of it changed. I think Battlefield 4 with be similar. I would love to get a BC3 though.

DeadlyFire1006d ago

EA says Bad Company 3 won't happen until Mirror's Edge 2 and Battlefront are done. So I am thinking 2016 we could see it coming.
