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. (Battlefield 4, Patrick Bach, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

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!

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.

What exactly is wrong with BF4? I felt BF4 was way more of a BF game just from the beta than BC-BF3.
0ut1awed  +   766d 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.

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.
nsignific  +   766d 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.
Matt666  +   766d ago
well said man and I think Dice would do even better if they didn't gave EA breathing down there necks.
Feralkitsune  +   765d 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.

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.
FunkMacNasty  +   766d 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.

JBaby343  +   766d 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.
DeadlyFire  +   766d 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.

That would be great. Also they should forget about consoles and focus on PC, the true next gen experience. They would make a better game and more money.

he SHOULD HAVE said, "I dont want to talk about BF5 as thats not even a reality....Lets focus on BF4 and make sure it has a successful launch"... but anyway... can not wait for BF4 to release... may not sale as much as CoD, but will definitely be the better game as it has been since that copy and paste MW3 crap..
cunnilumpkin  +   766d ago
bf2143 please

with no single player crap wasting time from balance and perfectly crafted maps!
Shadonic  +   766d ago
I enjoy the single player bits but I can understand your frustration after having 343 focus more on single player rather than the multiplayer that made Halo last for years and years on its fun and addictive gameplay. The thing is that multiplayer can still be balanced and fun with the single player component and I highly doubt that any multiplayer side of a games going to be perfectly balanced at release.
So what they're trying to say is just skip Battlefield 3.5 and wait for their next game.

please no , don't advise the Destruction because we already know it's part of the gameplay but don't advise it.
the Destruction has become the most casual and gimmick thing i ever heard.
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   766d ago
The reason why Medal Of Honor bombed was because it was a bad game with unnecessary money pooled in for gun licensing not because of military advisers alone. They used a new team with probably 1/6th of Battlefield 3's budget and expect it to sell the same numbers. DICE makes it sound like the army came to them to make Medal Of Honor when I am pretty sure it was vice versa.

MOH was used just as a scapegoat to make a cheap Call Of Duty clone instead of they actually TRIED to make new shooter worthy of the title.....

What's needed, at least in a mode of its own:

Incremental, visible/gameplay relevant vehicular damage and repair (more realistic), shooting a tank over an over in the tread will not destroy the tank, but disable it and a blow torch could cut open the hatch, but never simply blow the tank up.

Chopper pilots go down with the chopper, no parachuting, but maybe they can survive heavily damaged if the altitude was not to great or they bring it down gently enough.

Infantry carry reasonably long ropes for scaling buildings, but not infinite parachutes.

Have to physically climb to the hatch/cockpit of a vehicle or door to enter.

"Generalized" spot and mark indicating a 15 meter area where enemies are present, but not a floating triangle above their heads unless BF5 is going full-on futuristic/semi futuristic warfare with heads up displays attached to head gear.

Bring back the destructioNNNS!

-a man who questions what he's fighting for
- Someone named whiskey tango Firefly
