GameSpew: Even though I'm not a massive Star Wars fan, the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta has me pretty excited for the full game which is released this November.
I have been playing on the ps4 pro and it dosnt look that good to be honest, bf1 looks better.
Coming from someone who played a lot of call of duty, I don't think EA get enough credit for how good there current gen games look in comparison. I played the first Battlefront on PS4 and the visuals wiped the floor with COD. Having played battlefield. You probably have a different take.
No, he is correct. I enjoyed all the games you mentioned. This game does not look good on the pro or my SUHD. BF1 has much cleaner textures and more detail. I was very unimpressed. The 1st one looked amazing at release. Mind blowing. This one is not clean looking at all.
Exactly my 1st thought.
Maybe because it's a Beta version.
This game doesn’t have a real beta; you’re playing a demo.
The game won't change hardly at all from the beta. If this were the alpha sure, you could use this argument. Patches down the road can fix it, but if the beta looks sub-par in comparison it's not going to change at launch.
Or maybe because we've got used to the hype and expectations then the initial mind-blown nostalgia moments from the first EA Battlefront (for me it lasted for about a week before I realised how shallow the game was).
Really? Do you honestly believe this? Lol Hopeful you are.
Yeah there definitely something wrong with it visually. It looks terrible, also has this weird subtle heat wave effect.
Some screen shots I took. Look at the straight edges. https://i.imgur.com/Npz05nz... https://i.imgur.com/rLJ91Yu...
Well i guess im not buying bf2, and was hoping they fixed everything that went wrong with sw bf1
I notice BF1 has an PC-like FOV slider, does BF2 have this also?
My biggest gripe is that it takes too many hits to bring someone down. Damn laser sponges!
A valid concern I've heard echoed. Too high TTK but grenades are super strong. Hopefully the final game isn't a nade fest.
It will be the 1st was
Sorry to disagreewith you Juiceid but im hopeless at this beta (and loving it) the extra sponge protection is appreciated by yours truley. Lol.
Again, it just feels like something is missing. Feels boring. I don't know. And I'm not a Star Wars fan really... Ok, so it hs "cool star wars sounds" ... wow, nice! But the gameplay just feels........ ________
Exactly, the games suck.. but fanboys will always purchase the games and then they will keep making them and never improve.. soooo
To be fair, it is better than the 2015 Battlfront
I find it way better then the other one not coin like for hero or machine in map and it's beta still time 4 improvements. I do agree with the specialist but the officer is by far weaker then the rest. I wait it out could be the map
The quality of the game won't matter. It will sell off of the hype of the upcoming film.
Im a star wars loyaltist, and i can tell you i wont buy this, they facked up bf1 and then didnt bother to really fix the issues, just added more stuff on it. I can be a fanboy but im not blind
Just like COD, battlefield, Gran Turismo, PES, FIFA, etc etc...... yeah, there're all just as crap as thier 1st installments. Nothing has changed at all, no improvements... lol. Sometimes people are just never satisfied!
@whitey2k Yeah the specialist and officer do seem weak compared to the assault and heavy, I assume the specialist weakness is to combat the possibility of maps becoming infested with snipers, but with officer the weapons are weak and I ended up abusing the turret and detonating nade often in rounds. I am a Star Wars nut and was so disappointed with Battlefront 1 that I am definitely not buying this day 1 (sold the game after two weeks, but kept the nice steelbook to put in a blu ray rip of Harmy's Original Trilogy despecialized restoration), but so far the beta plays better than EA Battlefront. Now just seeing how those pay 2 win star cards affect the gameplay before deciding to get this for the multiplayer or months later for the campaign. @REDGUM Preach! So disappointed with the few improvements to PES 18 especially in terms of gameplay, plus MyClub has gone much worse and unforgiving compared to last year. Hopefully I can get the Platinum trophy or close to it by the end of November (unlikely though because of the damn 'win 2 in a row against Legend difficulty' bronze trophy).
I don't know, I wouldn't go as far as saying the game sucks, but it does lack a sort of punch. Granted, I only played one round of the beta so my opinion could change, but my initial impression is that the game doesn't feel very gripping. I expect the game to do well commercially though, and I expect good reviews.
I agree. It doesn't feel right at all
The game has the same boring, random combat, as Battlefront (2015), its blatantly imbalanced also. There is no depth, no resource management, unlimited ammo, and grenades "recharge". I don't get how the company that created Battlefield, the game the original battlefronts are based on, can't manage to make a fair, balanced class-based Star Wars shooters.
I think for me that when I get a kill it doesn't feel like I have accomplished anything. Also there is no real weight to anything, it all feels floaty and cheap. It's all about spectacle and pretty explosions. I am having a bit of fun with Starfighters since switching the controls to legacy, rolling with the right stick feels super awkward to me.
They bringing back the stupid OP Heros that there for no other reason than cuz some Star Wars fanboy at DICE though "How cool would it be if you could be Darth Vader and own people in multiplayer?" Well, its not cool, its dumb. You want to play as Darth Vader ? cool, then add a Hero only TDM or some other crap.
oh the uninformed!!!!! the heros arent op, thy get humiliated if they push all crazy. theyre more vulnerable than the first. also there is a all hero tdm , heroes vs villains. just git gud
Sounds like an access game.
Somethings wrong on pc text screen all blurry pixaly on my 1080 its terrible
Its at 1080p on the PS4 Pro....I seriously doubt it'll get a bump before release. Does have HDR but it just so muddy on a 4K TV
I have mine on pc on my 4k tv something wrong with beta its like old vhs movie it looks blurry text unreadable its terrible
Well, I spent some time with the game today first on PC then PS4 Pro and was planning to download for X1S but no longer. I own the first after a flash sale with expansions and unfortunately I'm having the same experience. The engine and graphics are impressive, the sound in incredible but it feels like just another run and gun COD/Battlefield game with a Star Wars paint job. I'm a life long Trek fan, of course we had many hundreds of hours vs. a few movies for the last 30 years or so and it's hard to compare, but the iconic heroic stories are what made SW great. I'll be picking this up vanilla to run through the campaign when it's on the dime. All this beta managed to do is remind me how great "The Force Unleashed" was last gen.
IS anyone having problems with the flight controls? Is like they change it entirely from BF1 and is making me impossible to control it just like i did in the first one : /
I hate the way the guns feels. There's so little impact from the shots that it's hard to tell if you're even hitting your target. Other FPS's like Tfall, COD, etc... you really feel the shots connecting. Here, like the first game, it just feels floaty and bad.
So far it's been fun but I can't stand the opposing team spam reinforcements and heroes. Basically one who happened to have a lot of points and cards will turn the match in almost every time. Happened to me few matches in a row and I just quit,fuck these pay to win bastards. Draw distance are very poor though I can see the draw ins a lot especially Strike forested map (Play on PS4) and the game looked pretty soft maybe dynamic resolution and tons of effect made the game looked too soft at certain moments.
After playing the beta for an hour I'm very impressed with this game's sound design, but then again it's a Dice game so I was expecting it to be better than most other game franchises out there. I've never played the first game or Battlefield One so I don't know if this is how Dice currently makes games, but I was rather taken aback by the lack of any dynamic destruction of the environment, especially evident after playing the Royal Palace level in Galactic Assault. This zero environment interaction choice really sank in as I was walking around exploring the city and suddenly came to a semi-secluded small town square with a gazebo/bandstand. Inside this gazebo were a few tables and chairs that I couldn't move, damage or destroy at all.The only destruction I ever witnessed was the preset mission objectives. How I miss the days of playing Bad Company 2, no walls could keep me out.
Don't like Loot Boxes Progression System. No buy from me.
The game does nothing for me played the beta feels uninspired. Glad I got Destiny 2 on pc in a few weeks that’s my Star Wars game :)
enjoy the repetitivness 😂
As opposed to the non repetitiveness of battlefront/battlefield games? Looooool you’re deluded if you think those games ain’t also repetitive.
Loool screw em both who said I was comparing it to battlefront?
Damn, not one positive comment here, daffuqs going on.
Gotta say the beta has turned me off of the game. Which is in stark contrast to the first which was a no buy until I played the beta making it an insta buy. Just not enjoying this as much as I enjoyed the first. Played on both PS4 and PC and it's just not clicking with me sadly. I'll get it cheaper down the road so I can play the campaign.
My impressions: It is a game I can play on and off until the inevitable next one, not care one bit about my in-game stats or micro transactions, and enjoy my time with the game :)
