OnlySP: Shinobi602 is at it again, this time providing information on the rumored police themed Battlefield game that’s supposed to arrive this Fall.
huh. so my hunch was right. hope it turns out to be good.
EA should really learn for how bad BF4 launch was(to gamers wise because money wise it made a lot of money) EA needs to make sure this game is ready to launch and won't require countless patches just to make it playable
Well, truth is that Battlefield 4 was the exception to the rule. That hasn't happened with the majority of EA's releases. Gamers were rightfully pissed off about how unplayable BF4 was but it wasn't a case of EA rushing the game to release and not caring about a finished product. The reason BF4 was so broken was because while it was being developed, BF3 was being patched frequently and by the time BF4's development had finished none of those patches were applied to it's engine. It sounds like a weird situation and it was. It was an oversight. Wasn't laziness, wasn't greediness, it was BF4 being built on a subopmtimal version of BF3 and never seeing any of those bug fixes or patches simply because the teams working on either developing the new engine or fixing the old one, were different. As someone who loves game design, I love reading about these things in interviews and I'm pretty certain EA and DICE only needed to make that mistake once.
damn right apart from watch dogs don't think ill be buying any games day one until a few weeks after it comes out battlefield 4 pissed me right of with multiple glitches
EZMickey gamers shouldn't be pissed at EA as much as these gaming critics who gave BF4 great review scores. None of them could stand up to EA's phat checks
You hunch will be sir, and how is my lunch?
so...even Visceral is doing BF now ha? just like how AV CoD-ed every dev they can get. way to go EA!
I like Visceral. I like SWAT. Don't screw it up, EA!
I think I'd prefer a new single player SWAT game. The old ones from Activision were really good.
that's quick considering dead space 3 came out last year and they're also supposed to be working on a star wars game.
I'd suspect its a collaborated project between Visceral and DICE LA since Sweden is working on Battlefront.
I think this is the reason DICE started CTE on PC. Which is smart after the backlash and negative press after the release. If they f'd up twice at the beginning of this-gen after saying how last-gen was holding them back then I think EA could lose DICE as developers. Hopefully future Battlefield titles live up or surpass Bad Company 2. Could Battlefield:S.W.A.T. be an secret revamp of Bad Company?
Maybe, but also could just be a new spin-off flavor. As they have stated they could do another Bad Company game as well later even while this was in development. So idk. I do expect it to land big though. Possibly as big as Bad Company 2 or better. Hopefully all the fast mash porting of Battlefield 4 that landed the game in conflicted development hell with so many problems at launch won't happen again.
imo DICE should've had high tick rate on BF4 since the beginning no self respecting FPS will have a tick rate under 30. CSGO goes all the way up to 120, and coincidentally its probably the most competitive FPS out there too.
This game sounds like there going for a rainbow six feel and vibe to it. As some of you have said on this story " Don't screw this up EA" I think I would rather see them wait a year or 2 and give us some more maps and weapons for BF4.
knowing EA they'll find a way to screw it up or drive potential buyers away with microtransactions etc. JUST DON'T SCREW IT UP!
EA, no Premium Edition pls! D:
hmmmmmm Rainbow Six ... if only. R6V was my most played MP last gen. A true thinking mans shooter.
This has been seen awhile ago as coming. So yeah NO SHIT INSIDERS.
this has the potential to be loads of fun, hope it's done correctly! EA don't have a blockbuster shooter penned in for the Fall so this rumour makes sense
I love Rainbow Six Vegas 1&2 and Battlefield, so I'm sure I'll really like this game.
Me to! I have alot of time in RSV 1 & 2. I guess we will see at E3 in a few weeks what EA/Visceral have in store for us. I know where I'll be on 6/9 In front of the tv tuned to the E3 coverage on Spike TV. So i'm already stocking on snacks,drinks and have the phones shut off,oh and the "don't bother Knocking" sign ready for the door!
BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! I want BATTLEFIELD 2143.
This just feels like they're trying to ride the coattails of battlefield. Why not introduce the game as its own IP? I mean battlefield SWAT?
If it's got Battlefield in the game it'll sell more. Only reason really.
YEA,like a Turd of Dooty or Halo games name to anything does....Hmmmm like a turd of dooty energy drink or Halo/master chief pizza rolls! ROFLMAO!!!
seems kind of pointless when in reality the game will most likely play like a Battlefield game with police
Does anyone else remember Police Quest Swat? Really looking forward to this is if is real
Sounds cool the last swat game I can remember is the one rock steady did on ps2 and I liked it quite a bit.
As long as it's just a str8 shooter and no bs crap like killstreaks then I'd be interested.
I might be in the minority here but I hope it´s not a another FPS game. Bloody overkill already...
Honestly, there's a lot more action and RPG games that have been announced than FPS games. Really just have Destiny, Advanced Warfare, this game and one or two others this year I'm probably missing.
You´re correct. The reason might be that I´m adding BF4, Blacklight, Ghost, Shadowfall and Titanfall to our library. Fact is if we are already bored and done with the games then the devs are not doing a good job at all. They´re good games (I can´t stand for Ghost though), BF4 is infact amazing (minus the server issues) but I can´t see any major improvements at this point except for a new scenario, outfits, perks and guns for this genre. I guess what I´m trying to say is that I just want to see something fresh at this point.
I'm still waiting on a full fledge Battlefield Vietnam game ;)
HipHop Gamer broke this awhile back, alot of people hate on HHG.
Not really sold on the idea.. Don't think SWAT works as a battlefield game. Very underwhelmed.
Well, they did implement a cover system in BF4, so that's one big change and something essential to SWAT. Aside from the Battlefield name, I don't think it'll play much like Battlefield.
I'm sold now I can make work and video games meet!
I turn my back on these guys, i swore i wouldn't buy another battlefield game until they got bf4 on ps4 up to par, and they still havent. No way will i support a police themed battlefield Either way.. F'n garbage idea.
Wait till the CTE patches start rolling in ;)
promises promises. Regardless i will not support a police themed battlefield.
That's what I wanted BF5 to be a swat game. If done right it could be fun.
I personally don't give a crap about another shooter game from EA unless it's Bad company 3 or the like. I mean really, I really would have appreciated another Dead space or even the pipe dream of a Dante's inferno sequel. I mean if you've got BF, why do we need a Police based game too?
Well thanks EA. Was hoping we'd get a game nothing like Bad Company because who likes good games? Right?
And so the watering down of the Battlefield name begins. Fuck is next, they gonna have Treyarch making a Battlefield game ? Hey EA, if we want a shitty thrown together FPS every year we'll buy COD. Just give us Bad Co 3 instead, money hungry bastards.
man i wish they were making sequel of Dante's Inferno
