Gastón, from Twinfinite, states his thoughts on the few futuristic issues reavealed for the upcoming BF4 expansion and how this may determine the future of the series
Cool, may have to try it out.
Yeah, even if our illusions crash and burn. At least we'll know we can't trust EA in the most definite and painfull way.
Ha! No the expansion won't "save" the franchise... Franchise is just fine from the work done in the CTE.. But since most of N4G are CoD fanboys, they probably have no idea what the CTE is..
there's nothing futuristic about the upcoming dlc is just a very light tribute to BF2142 keep up or get out. there will be no BF2143 sequel because of star wars batllefront i think battlefield hardline could be the last battlefield in the next 3-5 years.
I was thinking the same thing. How can they release Bf 2143 in the next 2 or 3 years if Battlefront is coming next year
sure? Like 100% sure? like they said there was no Megalodon? I mean... who knows? Not you for sure When BF2142 came out no one was really expecting it... DICE just released it and people started calling it a BF2 mod. My point is... why would DICE boder making a 2142 themed DLC?
I'd love to see some form of titan mode in SW:BF. Like launching up EMP's into space to lower the star destroyers shields then having to board it and destroy it. Sounds great to me. I think the chances of them releasing a whole new title (full release not arcade) is minimal as its likely that SW:BF would be fairly similar in terms of gameplay and they probably won't want to run 2 games of the same type. Look what happened to MoH.
I've been DYING for a sequel to 2142.
They need to revisit 2142 or even a new 1942 with the scale and craziness that battlefield 3/4 has. That would be amazing. Im wondering why either COD or Battlefield hasnt gone back to the WW2 setting?
Dear god I hope so. If they were to make a 2142 sequel, between that and battlefront all my free time would disappear lol. @Desertpunk I disagree. BF 2142 was only slightly futuristic were as SW is pure sci-fi. We don't have drop pods, titans, or hovertanks. But we already have stuff that behaves similar. We have Ospreys, F35s with their crazy Halo style helmet HUDs, F22s going from full speed to dead stop and hover, remote controlled turrets, bendable self targeting assault rifles, soldier protective eye wear with a HUD and wrist mounted bendable computers linked to the HUD, the navy is making a real ship based rail gun, army is still testing exo suits and their 6 legged non human controlled war walker to replace things like strykers and bradleys. It's already done a 150 mile all terrain course on its own with no human control. Through my time in the military I've seen the first 4 in action first hand and others through combat expos. Like you said man, keep up or GTFO lol take your own advice bruh ;)
Screw them, they should of done what the did with BC2 + Vietnam, they should of done BF4 + 2142 Expansion or something, they are too greedy and stupid now to understand what gamers actually want.
No, ANY TIME EA is involved expect something major to always be wrong with the product. There history and track record proves this. . The sooner gaming is rid of EA the better for the gaming consumers.
CRYSIS warhead was fine..........
I am just going to say it. Bad Company 3. Or make the next Battlefield (not Hardline) more like Bad Company 2. Allow us to blow holes in the side of buildings again. They had a perfect formula as far as I was concerned with Bad Company 2. Great campaign and multiplayer. Then they just abandoned that wonderful foundation. I found 3 and 4 to be mere shadows of Bad Company 2. In fact, along with Killzone 2, Bad Company 2 was my favourite shooter from the last generation. I loved it.
I have to agree with Battlefront up next the chances of a 2142 sequel drops, wouldn't want franchises to clash and divide players on which futuristic shooter to play i have to go with BF5 as being the next project to work on and i imagine they have to be considering they have to take resources from other projects and put those on hold since with Bf3 and Bf4 those were two chances to get on top of the shooter genre and both really didn't live up to the expectations of many and all the negative coverage and image of EA/DICE keeps building and building
BF doesn't need saving, tonnes of people play BF4 and its awesome. Every shooter is futuristic now, I hope to god that BF doesn't go that way too. If it does how are we going to get our fix of modern shooters? I'm sick of Sci fi.
I'm sick of modern so bring on the Sci-fi!
