A new report claims DICE Sweden is making Battlefield 2018 and it's in a WW2 setting, while DICE LA is working on Bad Company 3!
Awesome. BF1 was really good and I'm probably going back to it after finally playing codww2....it's the best cod game in years but I overall enjoyed BF1 more,and I'm really excited to see what they can do with even more gun option in WW2.
I agree with everything said
Both very awesome to hear. COD WW2 was terrible and seeing as Dice handled BF1 very well I'm sure a WW2 setting will be as well but good lord is Bad Company 3 long over due!
COD: WWII was not terrible at all. A very enjoyable experience, in fact! OT: More Battlefield is great to hear!
summons no it wasn't it actually is a very good game let's not act like dice are so perfect after they released BF4 unfinished
The story was terrible and the only was typical broken COD. Yeah, it was pretty bad. Let's not act like COD is perfect seeing as WW2 came out in a terribly broken state and all COD and lack polish. Also I never once said every single BF game has been perfect.
BF4 as released in the state that it was entirely due to EA. Dice had no control over that and the amount of effort that dice poured into fixing the game post launch and making previously paid dlc content free all after the game was broken for several months...that shows they were dedicated to salvaging their work of art that was destroyed by EA’s insistinece on rushing the game out the door
Summon You can say a lot of things broken isn't one of the things. And that's coming from someone who doesn't like COD or BF BF4 came out unfinished and it took it atleast one year before it became enjoyable Every cod this gen has had 3 years of development time so extra time usually means better product Instead of hating maybe dice should step their game up and not be outsold by cod every single time
@summon-so what were you expecting some sort of Epic Bioshock Citizen Kane type Story? The biggest problem I have is that Call of Duty single player story is not really as good as even Battlefield neither are really so great that you're going to remember them. Sooooooo yea I purchase both series and I could tell you both series actually have pretty meh single player stories but the segments regarding the single players are actually pretty good even if the story is not that great.
Disagree on WWII being terrible but fully agree on Bad Company 3 being way long overdue!
I miss attack choppers and little birds.
Different games Call of Duty World War 2 was actually not bad at all it's actually a very good game.
Call of Duty WWII was a huge leap over Infinite Warfare Battlefield 1 and 4 were short to me Infinite Warfare seemed a lot longer.
COD WW2 has one of the best campaigns in franchise IMO.
You clearly are someone who will hate on CoD no matter what they do, so I don’t see why you’re trying to set standards for it. If you like BF, cool, but CoD WW2 is a great game. I haven’t really played CoD MP since MW2, but I’ve been playing WW2 a crap ton, and have probably spent more time on the multiplayer there than I have all previous CoD’s combined. It’s great, and BF doesn’t set any sort of standard that CoD is required to meet.
Battlefield feels too heavy and clunky. COD is what every other shooter aspires to be. It's fast and frenetic fun. You have to be very good in multiplayer to have a chance. Battlefield is not the worst game out there but let's not get confused here.
That is because Battlefield is meant to be more realistic, while CoD is an arcade shooter.
CODww2 is far from terrible. Maybe you just suck at it. Bring on BC3
I love all the people telling you the game WAS good as if it's an objective fact lol. The campaign was a total joke, somehow more linear than the last games wher if you try to go off the main path in any fashion you get punished for it. A lot of the set pieces were outlandishly stupid (like the derailed train) and the gameplay suffers from the endlessly respawning enemies until you reach some invisible trigger barrier like some of the earlier games as well. Plus the narrative was mediocre at best since it was super predictable and cliché. Zombies still mostly the same so boring as usual, while the MP STILL has the same ol netcode and weapon balance issues which apparently is a staple of the series. Lots of bad maps too. Even the CODWW2 subreddit called the game's issues out, I guess only on N4G will fanboys shill for any game in existence, or maybe they just never played any actual good shooters so they have incredibly low standards lol.
wwII opens up a lot more then 1 had. Tanks and planes were much more lethal, guns were vastly improved but still before the laser guided lock on's. If they don't casualfield it again skill will be important in a wwII setting. Who am I kidding though, it will have heavy aim assist.
Korea or Vietnam would be a nice change. We've all played ww2 games, how about some other wars please
The Troubles in the British Isles
Korea would only offer a change in terms of scenery and aesthetic, most of the weaponry and armaments were the same as WW2.
Vietnam won't balance right for axis and allies. Can't really remember how it was on PC all those years ago?
Its about appeal. WWII still has a massive historical draw due to the events involved. It had one of the biggest impacts on present day living and involved pretty much all of the world meaning you can involve multiple nations, therefore adding more appeal. At the end of the day its a business and they need the game to sell, personally, DICE doing WWII will be great, the atmosphere etc, COD WWII is ok but it doesn't capture the grandeur or size of the events involved, its just COD in a WWII skinned world. Tanks played a major part of WWII and COD just can't replicate this with its limited style. Now, stick in tanks, Battlefields destruction elements, its more realistic gun elements and we may just get one of the best WWII implementations in a game.
You shouldn’t really need laser guided lock ons to shoot something. More satisfaction w/o it imo
It was approved before this http://n4g.com/news/2130687... Got hot, and then removed. Why? The two articles provide the same information. If that article is already hot on N4G and providing valuable information, why fail it and let this rise?
kinda upset for real i wanted vietnam setting
Could always be like bad company 2 and end up an add on. The real stand alone battlefield Vietnam game is easily the worst and isn’t good at all, ok maybe modern combat was the worst lol. However, Bad company 2s Vietnam dlc, was amazing.
that was my fav dlc of all time
The war stories idea was a decent idea. Flesh it out a bit more this time and give us a look at the Western Front, the Eastern Front, the Pacific, the infighting going on in Italy, the conflict in Africa and the conflict between Japan and China. This should extend to the multiplayer and I hope we get some awesome maps really showcasing the "world" part of the war. The Eastern front, Western front, and the war in the Pacific are all significant enough that you could easily make an entire game off of each one. Italy, China, and Africa would simply be the icing on the cake. WW2 is so huge that they really should look at supporting the game for 2-3 years. The base game could start off early in the war, possibly ending with Pearl Harbor and the Americans joining the war? The first season could work all the way through and culminate in the Battle of Berlin. Hell, give the game 3 years and 3 seasons of content. DLC packs could be marked by battles that significantly changed the course of the war, such as D-Day and the US joining the battle on the Western front. War stories should focus on significant events of the war rather than trying to tell tales of individual made-up characters. The characters you play as should only serve as observes to the events that are shaping the world. Imagine a DLC pack that includes Guam and Okinawa and has a war story that ends with someone witnessing the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the Japanese surrender. They really have the potential to make a game that shows just how *huge* and impactful WW2 was. If they ditch worrying about characters and instead make the game a showcase of how broad and devastating WW2 was then it'd actually have the potential to be an emotionally moving game. EA seems to be about viewing games as a service that you get people to continually pay for. I hope to god there's no lootboxes in the game, but WW2 has so much potential and content that for once it makes sense to only show part of the war in the base game and expand significantly upon it in DLC/Expansion packs. Even if they took a dozen expansion packs over 3 years to give a comprehensive overview of WW2 I would buy each and every one. It would finally be the definitive WW2 game. It's EA though, so I won't get my hopes up too high.
Didin't Bad Company 2 had WW2 settings with flash backs? Maybe it's something like that
The Bad Company series was modern day. The first one was funny as hell with great destruction while the second game had a more serious tone and left off at a cliffhanger.
BC2s introduction was in WW2
All the BC 3 news is playing with my emotions.
Pass Never Buying EA again!
I'm hopeful they revert to gunplay and destructability similar to BF:BC2 and BF3, BF4. I didn't enjoy BF1 much, better net code - but just wasn't fun.
NIce, can't wait. I'm itching for a new modern Battlefield.
Please let it be true and let it be good because I need me some Bad Company 3!
BC3 had better be real. Day 1 Buy if it is. As for a WW2 BF, I’ll keep my hype in check, because I was actually pretty excited for BF1, and that game turned out to be garbage.
Garbage? Horses for courses I guess
We have had too many old school world war games. They should do Bad Company 3 before BF2.
I find it hard to get excited about anything that EA does these days. Just look at Medal of Honor, Mass Effect, Star Wars Battlefront, Dead Space, Army of Two, Mirror's Edge, Tiger Woods PGA Tour and Need for Speed. All of these game franchises, which were some of the best in all of gaming, have been pretty much destroyed under CEO Andrew Wilson's leadership. Alternatively, just look at what EA hasn't done, with franchises like Skate, Burnout, Battlefield Bad Company(spin-off series), and Dante's Inferno. It seems like they either drive their best game franchises down the tubes, or they just do nothing at all with them. Then there's Anthem, which we can easily assume, will be built entirely around micro-transactions. EA and their studios have lost all passion when it comes to making games which become classics, and leave a lasting impression. These days it's all about making a quick buck, and nothing more.
I agree. EA fucking cash cows all in the NPD top 10. Madden, NBA, and FIFA. Nothing but 60 dollar roster updates. I wish this company would just go away.
WW2 again? Pass. Seems everybody's run out of ideas after going to the future, now they wanna go back to the past again lol. BC3 sounds nice on paper but hardly any of the guys who made the first two are even with DICE anymore, so it'll remain to be seen if they muck it up or not.
I prefer battlefield then CoD. I feel I'm there with battlefield and CoD is like a 6v6 mess
CODS fine , unfortunately it has the same nonsense as the other CODS, the devs just can't try anything new as they don't want to upset the COD fanbase, the quickscoping in WWII is appalling and you can get shot through trucks , yet can't shoot through wood, throw in the dodgy lag compensation and you just have COD in WWII. Its a shame, because if they grounded a bit more realism into the game (LMGS would rip you to shreds from mid range and sniping requires you to scope in and cannot be wielded like SMG's) then it would be good. Unfortunately all the people with modded pads would be annoyed as hell. I had a message from a quickscoper who was convinced COD has no aim assist and it was all him, the replay of his kills show otherwise as he turns 180, presses L2, the the sniper rifle zooms a quarter way in, he presses R2 and it kills someone, you know just like a real sniper in WWII. Everyone is using SMG's or Rifles no matter the map, all the other guns are rendered pointless, which is wrong as LMG's played a vary important role in WWII.
played cod ww2 for 2 mins to discover its evactly the same all all previous. shite next to bf4
Hopefully after their WW2 game, we can get BFV 2. Battlefield Vietnam was the first online multiplayer game I got seriously invested in, such a great game especially with the music, cruising in your chopper to Ride of the Valkyries while dropping your teammates onto a flag was so awesome.
I'm hoping they stay true to history, no women and swastika's.
I love BF1 So I'm excited for this. Also Bad Company 3?! HELL YEAH! Seems insane to think BC1 came out 10 years ago. Damn I feel old. What's odd is I remember them saying years ago they didn't understand what fans meant when they wanted BF to be more like BC. As long as they have the Compaign be hilarious, I'll be happy.
Casualfield WW2 - Cod kids Battlefield Bad Company 3 - Core Battlefield veterans.
Whatever..just more guns and grenades on a different map
Great news. BF1 was a great game.
For the love of God, please add custom bot matches for local play
Crap, Always avoiding the VIETNAM ERA conflict. Not interested, will wait for Bad Company 3
Dice have lost some dots off the dice for me a shadow of themselves.
