WWW2 you can tell from the goggles...damn I was expecting a modern setting....or even a bad company sequel.
Modern setting is crap seriously it's way over saturated at this point in gaming.i like that Dice is bouncing around different eras.It keeps the BF games fresh at least from my point of view. Yes you can tell it's WW2 the flag symbols seem to be U.K and the Wehmracht
Lol. I guess I'll be back on bf4 mostly for a while longer until a more modern bf is made. I like bf1 and I'm sure if this new bf game takes place during ww2 I'll like it but I know I'll quickly become tired of the setting. To each his own. There is still hope BFV will have a modern time setting and I'm hoping it will
Maybe its a Bad Company prequel. New characters set in WWII ala Kelly's Heroes.
Its not a Bad Company game or it would be called that, It's a main entry.
Says you, Battlefield always did modern era proper.
@ morganfell Crapgame ? /jk
modern setting is crap? you serious? over saturated? getting another ww2 game which would make it the 100th or 200th is better? stfu idiot
I'd argue that there are just as many WW2 shooters as there are modern shooters, and I'm not just talking about Battlefield, I'm talking about other franchises as well. It's always nice to keep a balance between the 2 eras (And even futuristic shooters).
@Archangel Make a list of modern shooters within the last 10 years compared to WW2.Ill wait,:)
@Jrios that's exactly what I'm getting at.Dice has never had full on BF experience WW2 game.Technology has come so far from when they made 1942.
I am upset it's not in Vietnam
Right because they have never done a wwii game before Oh wait Well they haven’t done a wwii game more than once Oh wait Sorry your argument is insufficient to declare why wwii over modern setting
Let the lock-on kiddies stay on bf4, more adults to play the objective with in the world war II setting ;)
Modern is saturated? Ok, let's bring back the most saturated era ever in ww2..../s
yea youre right majin vegeta, instead of these super flashy fighting games while youre at it, we need bare knuckles old school fighting games that arent modern or future based... same thing with racing games, we need less modern and go back to the fred flintstone models. Less modern....wait WW2 style is starting to become overdone.....we need to do sticks and stones combat cuz modern is crap seriously.....these graphics....they need to be downgraded to 4bit....less modern...crap... /rant
It might not be a modern setting but I guarantee it will play like a modern shooter. These releases are bittersweet. Was BF1942 really the pinnacle of WW2 games? Although I will admit 1943 was a pretty sweet console shooter.
Damn I wish they would just remake bf bc ....
I was hoping for a modern setting too.
There were four modern BF games between 2008 and 2013 (BFBC, BFBC2, BF3, BF4). BF4 still has an active player base on current gen consoles and PC. There hasn't been a true WWII battlefield since 2002. How does a modern setting make sense?
Jeece I don't have a problem with a WW2 game but the reason i personally prefer the modern setting is the gameplay, there is a lot more weapons, Heli's and vehicles/aircraft variety which keeps it more fresh down the road.
@ Jeece Battlefield 1943 released in 2008 or 2009, so there has been a WW2 BF game within the last 10 years, and it was actually pretty good, especially for the price, which was $15.00 if I remember correctly.
Modern settings will starts with next gen consoles.
@PUBG When I said "true WWII Battlefield" I was intentionally excluding BF1943. This was not a true iteration of the series, it was a remake of only a handful of BF1942's maps (and only Pacific theater ones for some reason) and it also limited the class system compared to BF1942. Even counting that, considering it came out with BFBC2, there have been 3 modern Battlefields during that time, and none of them were 4-map multiplayer-only remakes.
So... what was the BF Twitter tracking about then? Wasn't it teasing a "new setting"? BF has done WWII twice already. I like WWII so I'm not complaining. It's just weird they'd tease a new setting, when it isn't really new.
BF1942 was long enough ago that (unfortunately) most people playing now never played it. BF1943 was just a weak remaster of a few maps from 1942, and hardly a true iteration of the series.
My take is that when saying it's a "new" setting they meant it's not the same as the previous entry, which was World War 1. From the looks of things it would have to be WW2 or an alternate history game . . . Unless they're purposefully misleading us it doesn't look like it could be anything else.
@Rider Alternate history could be cool. I wonder if they'd actually go there though.
People are guessing it's gonna be steamounk WW2...whateber that mean
@porkChop, Yeah, I'm not sure they would . . . but then again EA originally shot down a Battlefield game set in WW1 but DICE proceeded to make a demo anyways. I think DICE has the clout to make the Battlefield game they want to make at this point and who knows what sort of ideas they've had swirling around. I imagine if they did an alternate history it would still be grounded though. Not over the top and stylized like games such as Wolfenstien.
me too! i'M DISSAPOINTED!
How do you know it's not Post Apocalyptic Steampunk?
Yeah I thought the numbered Battlefields were always going to be modern shooters, we haven't had a modern setting for a good shooter in a long time.
I was expecting WW2. Hmm
Hopefully it'll sell like crap and they'll move back to the modern bf games....
That’s all I want is a damn BC3! This would have been the perfect year too with CoD going no sp. Why wouldn’t they? An epic hilarious journey...ughh. Instead we get a 4 hr segregated campaign...most likely
These boring military shooters keep swapping back and forth between eras. I don't know how anyone can even care anymore. We've had them yearly for like a decade. Christ give me a new Bioshock or Resistance game or something, anything with a bit of actual passion behind it
I know...games like Bioshock, Resistance, Halo, the original Prey, Half Life, Doom, Wolfestein, Borderlands, Far Cry, L4D and the like are the only FPS games I can get away with because they have something special behind them, like a good theme or a unique spin like taking us to unseen locations
Im with you
WW1 had very rarely been done in the medium, even more so at AAA level. There's also a idea going around that BFV might be alternate history. Okay yeah it's been done before but considering how long the BF franchise has been around for they are trying to mix things up a bit if things become true. Tomorrow we will see.
If I have to be honest, it’s disappointing to be honest. I love World War games, but it’s just getting boring to be honest. I would love a modern setting and VietNam War setting. And this is my unpopular opinion, I would love a futuristic BF game. We haven’t got a futuristic BF game since BF 2142.
Looks like we are getting an actual SP campaign and its almost certain they will do BR. Imagine that, BR and SP... what a revolutionary thought. CoD is a billion dollar franchise, there is no reason they shouldnt have both modes.
Especially since they had 3 years to make the game
U are a very honest person
I loved all BF games since BF2:MC (didn't have a pc to play the real BF2) but people's loved the Veitnam DLC for BC but I thought the setting whilst good for a DLC, wouldnt get as much praise as a single game. The maps would be very samey in terms of style and that's the last thing any people want from MP maps these days. People blast COD and destiny for having samey maps, BF doesn't need that too (although some of the apocalypse DLC felt similar to some of the other maps).
To be honest, I don't understand why you use so many "honest" in your comment, to be honest.
Well looks like AlmightyDaq was right again...
My God, the Hud... Is this graphics???
This is the FPS, I can imagine havi and a good Battle Royale mode, it doesn't fit COD at all.
Gamers get years and years of WWII games and are blown away at modern warfare games that release for several years. Get bored of that and ask for WWI, WWII era games. We get two of those and now everyone wants modern/futuristic again. I think it's pretty funny. Having said that another take on a far future BF game would be interesting but I suspect this will do well.
Ugh enough with WW2 already.
It's been 9 years since the last WW2 Battlefield game, which was just a small download title, and before that it was 7 years. It's been 16 years since the last mainline Battlefield game was WW2. If people don't like WW2 as a setting, there's nothing wrong with that, but there's no point in acting like WW2 is over-saturated like it was 10-15 years ago, or like modern settings were 5-10 years ago.
so what? there have been plenty of ww2 games....its fucking overdone at this point. Does each dev need to have their own version of ww2 or ww1 and remake it 10 times?
@Archangel25, Literally the exact same thing can be said about modern shooters, lol.
I think its cause call of duty ww2 left a bad taste
more ww2 plz
It'll be the best ww2 game you'll ever play.. Trust me.
On the plus side, at least there won't be soldiers dabbin- ...please, DICE...
I wonder if this game will get flak for not using nazi symbolism like Call of duty WW2 did?
I don't understand all the shock that this isn't a modern setting. Battlefield Bad Company 1 & 2, and Battlefield 3 & 4 were all modern military shooters. Four games since 2008. There hasn't been a proper WWII battlefield since 2002 (I don't count BF1943 as a true iteration of the series as it was only a few maps), and most people playing now never played that one, and even those that did can recognize that the engine has changed significantly enough that a revisit to the era will be materially different than BF1942. A new modern BF would essentially be a BF4 map pack.
Why not the Korean War? Especially with all the events going on these days? I wanna roll in some tanks with MacArthur and kill some commie scum!
That would be great! The Battle of Chosin Reservoir would make for an amazing map for all game types. Single Player and Co-Op would be like a horde mode, and MP would be attackers vs defenders.
okay so according to the numbers up the screen, one side has 279 players and the other 308??? if so Battle Royal confirmed?
No that's Conquest.The number you see is the amount of tickets your team has.When it reaches zero the match is over.You can make the other team lose tickets by killing enemy players or holding more flags than them
Yes its ww2 you can hear that they are about to say Sieg Heil out loud in the background
I’m all about the WW2 setting, so long as it doesn’t suck as much as BF1 did.
Probably gave up after realizing the game actually has a learning curve
Not really. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed BF games in the past, and went as far as to even platinum BF1. The game just sucks.
