Some great stuff, some bad. Overall underwhelming trailer, I need more information. Choice of "lets make a woman talk first in a WWII game trailer" was a questionable choice.

bolimekurac124d ago

that was a amazing trailer and its gonna rock on the xbox one x. so impressive it is

Gaming_1st124d ago

@bolimekurac

Far from a amazing trailer. Actually i was a little disappointed.

abstractel124d ago

Hth do you justify criticizing this game trailer for having a woman speak first? It's not about whether there were a lot of women soldiers during WW2, there's been so many stories told and other parts of the trailer (including her arm) is showing that this is their take in this version of their WW2 game. Just really don't get how that choice bothers you.

I'll wait for any news on MT's for starters.. The action looks good, but that's all it showed really, hope the gameplay will be changed up enough from previous titles to keep things interesting.

-Foxtrot124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

I was going to say I know there were some woman on the battlefield during WWII but that level of bad ass I'm not sure. Most of the roles women had during WWII were searchlight operators military wise

@abstractel

I don't think it bothers people because "oh my God...sexism" it's just the studios always make out they want these well told Battlefield games about the core aspects of the war they are making the game about and also trying to respect our history by showing it as it happened...however they end up doing things which make you scratch your head and go "Did they do that?" contradicting their own statements. Of course these kind of games take into the "over the top" nature but you can't add or change our history just to bring in "equality". People were closed minded back then, we have to learn to accept it and tell history as it was.

It's like TV shows or films set during the past where they feel like they need to include a woman or black character despite the fact the time period they've chosen might make people think "Really? In those times?"...and for what? Because everything these days needs to include diversity.

Now if it was a modern or future based war game...well do what you like considering we live in a more open minded and progressive world

fathertime4464124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

@foxtrot
Most Russian snipers and a lot of french resistance were women in ww2, so yeah plenty of bad ads women to go around.

Looks pretty damned sweet, I like that it's just set in ww2 and not necessarily true to life. Sometimes that makes for a better game when you dont follow the dots completely.
More excited for this than BLOP 4

hazard17remedy124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

@-Foxtrot

Woman fought on the front line, usually in anti aircraft units. And not only 50, 100. Hundreds of woman's gave their blood and lives to fight in the WWII.

-Foxtrot124d ago

@fathertime4464

Russian Snipers and some French Resistance members...not really "on the battlefield" is it. I'm talking about in the trenches, on the front lines, in the heart of the war like shown in the action packed trailer, not resistance groups within home cities or some snipers. Not to mention a person on the battlefield with a hook hand? You'd most likely be dead with two hands considering how deadly and brutal the war was, managing to be an over the top bad ass with one working hand...come on. Lets not pretend they aren't trying to please a certain crowd so they can get some brownie points with people.

If the game was about a resistance group composed of regular average joes within the town with hardly no fighting experience while they try to hold back a hostile German take over of where they live then sure that sounds great, it would fit within the story.

Septic124d ago

"Choice of "lets make a woman talk first in a WWII game trailer" was a questionable choice."

Seriously? Why ?

kevnb124d ago

what was good about it? It looked the same as every other campaign in the genre that sucked.

Skull521124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

The social justice warrior mentality is strong with EA. Made sure to get both a woman and a black man in that splash screen. Nothing against either, but the forced diversity is overwhelmingly apparent, and that stuff got old a long time ago.

I just hope they retain a good amount of historical accuracy or you can count me out. If I start seeing all sorts of optics on weapons it's a no-buy for me, we already know you have another modern Battlefield game in the pipeline, and that is where that stuff belongs.

WelkinCole124d ago

Does it bother you that much that a woman talks first?. Its just a freaking game. Its not real life.

I hate how triggered the SJW crowd are of anything but you folks are getting just as bad.

It would be nice to come in a gaming tread for once and not talk BS gender politics.

fathertime4464124d ago

@foxtrot
It's more than obvious that you have a reading disability. Did I or did I not also say that it's not true to life and I kinda liked it more for that?! Learn to read and comprehend.
Also last I checked, you had to be on the front lines or beyond them in order to be a successful sniper. Also the trenches were in ww1. Learn your history and for God smacks learn to read, it's very important

-Foxtrot124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

@fathertime4464

You always know when someone is grasping for straws for their counter argument when the first line they have is a personal attack

***It's more than obvious that you have a reading disability***

Was that really needed? Anyway some snipers were female but mostly Russian and there was still hardly enough of them to really make a difference in all this. Is the woman in the trailer Russian? No? Then kind of an invalid argument

LOL trenches weren't used in WW2? Are you serious? Course they bloody were, only difference this time was they were used in a different way rather then full on defence like during WW1. Mostly to strengthen gains made during the on going struggle along with having them used as a jumping off point during offensive attacks.

Maybe you should read up on your history huh? Next time it'll make you look a little less silly.

fathertime4464124d ago

@foxtrot
What branch of military were you in that you feel so entitled to pi$$ on the female soldiers of that time that fought and did for people like you?
I was in the us army and Male or female front lines or not should always get more credit than a bigot like you

Ceaser9857361124d ago

bolimekurac

Well amazing looking trailer Graphics wise but can't say whether the game will be amazing and its gonna rock on the Ps4 Pro too ,

Septic124d ago

Lol a woman and a black man in this shooter are what you guys are complaining about....right...

SolidStoner124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

Im sorry, but as a Hard-core BF fan, I didnt miss even one BF game, playing since 1942 :D

BF5 looks like a cartoon for children and has no feel of WW2, spit in the face for game fans and WW2 veterans..
Core fan audience is looking for calm representation of WW2, with realistic BF graphics and physics, especially gun control and recoil, just hope it will get a proper Hardcore mode with 1 bullet HS, like in other realistic FPS, we have to take away those super human running and jumping with no consequences when you get shot, it looks/feels stupid and is made for egoistic retards..

edit: and fix rate of fire of guns, make it realistic and represent each gun like it should work in WW2, please no more fake "balancing" just so cry babies can shoot with every weapon the same way..

Kryptix123d ago

Seems like whatever SJWs that worked on Andromeda got moved towards this project.

The trailer disapppinted me, I can easily tell this game will be "fruity" allowing whatever stupid cosmetic item they can come up with. Most likely taken inspiration from Fortnite that I wouldn't be surprised they went this route to cater to everyone because they're also adding their own batgle royale mode.

This reminded me of the time Brothers in Arms was being turned into something different and the project got cancelled.

Well, after the right steps with BF1, they're going to lose that momentum with this one.

if only you're this optimistic about PS4 games

showtimefolks124d ago

Obsecure

Gamers like you are the reason EA is where it is today. Day one that's what EA and Activision are looking for

You have zero knowledge of whether it will have MT or Loot boxes yet out of average trailer you made the choice of day one

Enjoy it because soon that $60 will just be the entry price and we will have to pay for everything

Star wars BF2 didn't teach any of yall a thing

Obscure_Observer124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

@showtimefolks

"You have zero knowledge of whether it will have MT or Loot boxes yet out of average trailer you made the choice of day one"

What i know is that there´s not pay to win in place! I´m a competetive gamer and a BF fan. As long as there BALANCE i don´t give a damn about MT´s.

Also, i couldn´t care less about what you think about me. I´m not a hypocrite and i KNOW for a fact that i´m not gonna be like alot of you said White Knights of gaming that will resort to any kind of lame and pathetic excuses to justify your TLOU 2 or Death Stranding day one purchases, even if those games have Pay to Win or MTs in place.

Only 3 weeks to go.

darthv72124d ago

It shouldn't matter to you if obscure is getting it day one. It should only matter to you if you are or aren't getting it day one. From the sound of it... I'm thinking aren't.

showtimefolks124d ago

TLOU2 and death stranding won't have them bro stop talking out of your behind to justify your bad purchase. How the heck you know for a fact it won't have pay to win when star wars Bf2 had them before the backlash and it was developed by dice

gangsta_red124d ago

@showtime

Maybe the things that bother you aren't the same things that bother him.

If this isn't your thing then you fight that good fight, but please don't push your concern on others.

It's his money not yours.

SuperbVillain124d ago

How? Theres no season pass they said all the dlc will be free

showtimefolks124d ago

Superb

Didn't EA say the same thing with star wars BF2? And we know that game was a masterpiece and didn't have anything to do with pay to win

gangsta_red124d ago

Is it okay for him to be excited now? Does he have your permission?

Septic124d ago

Stupid hivemind mentality.

"You have zero knowledge of whether it will have MT or Loot boxes yet out of average trailer you made the choice of day one "

So?? If the gameplay is good and he doesn't need to purchase optional extras he shouldn't let keyboard warriors dictate whether he should buy the game or not.

It was a nice trailer. I'm more interested on more information and gameplay footage before deciding to buy it

UltraNova124d ago

Yep its easy to get excited...I mean look at the damn trailer...my GOD its gorgeous...but lets wait and see how EA shoehorned MTs in BFV.

rpvenom124d ago

Yeah. The trailer was very well made and it looks great. But F EA.

And to the comments about hating that there was a female.. seriously guys? It's a fxcking game.. not based on true stories.. relax.. You're reacting the same way SJW's are..

UltraNova124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

Rpvenom,

Regarding the whole female focus thing. I dont care but isnt Dice padding themselves on the back because BF is kinda realistic? Did they come out and say, you know this game is set in WW2 but we are doing our own thing that has no or even somewhat historical accuracy? No they said during the reveal that they will take us to a trip through untold WW2 stories! I dont blame anyone that either gets irked or likes this female focus thing tbh.

CorndogBurglar124d ago

I'm at work and haven't watched yet.

Did it say no MT's or Loot Crates? Because that is what most people are hesitant about, I think. Not their ability to put out a good Battlefield game.

morganfell124d ago

They said no Premium Pass...which means they have another heretofore untold scheme planned.

blacktiger124d ago

NO Pay to win means no more cheating, nothing to do with lootcrates and microtransaction

gigoran124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

Shady company policies? Oh because apparently EA invented loot boxes because a bunch of idiots complained about completely optional micro transactions that were funding the free dlc for the life of the game and they feel they have achieved something. It’s not like any other popular online game is using the same method of funding the free expansion of their rockstar game. When did they attack rockstar for that again? Oh that’s right, it’s all EAs fault

T2X124d ago

People are severely disillusioned when it come to products they enjoy vs corporate earnings. Business cares about profit, and I care about a good product. I buy these games and don't give a crap about making a "statement to the industry" I'll enjoy it and not care. They're making boatloads of money and 5% of the population not liking it doesn't matter to them.

CorndogBurglar124d ago

You don't have to an invent a shady policy to use a shady policy.

Let's face it, EA tried some really horrible things with Battlefront 2. Possibly one of, if not the worst progression systems ever seen completely geared around taking more money from customers.

It was so bad that they had it removed before the game even released due to fan feedback, then released an apology, then spent the next 6 months making a new progression system.

Yes, other games have had loot crates and MT's, but EA became known as the worst offender....by far.

I'm happy to hear what they are doing with Battlefield 5 tho. No pay to win, all DLC and maps are free. That is perfect. I would be willing to spend some extra cash for cosmetic items with a practice like that.

But it is EA. So I'm still very cautious. But it certainly sounds like they learned a valuable lesson from Battlefront 2.

blacktiger124d ago

don't get caught bro, they took premium dlc and kept single player which is nice. But it is essentially a same game (same game engine) with better graphic.

I wanted a new enginge for destruble but I guess they are saving for Bad Company 3! Worse it might not even come next year since Star Wars Battlefront 3 might come next year. I'll pass for now. I hope you guys enjoy a lot :)

Well, as far as I know (and I could be wrong), there weren't English chicks with pirate hook hands running around the battlefields of WW2 lol

AmstradAmiga124d ago

There were certainly woman on the Battlefield in WWII and the prosthetic shown in the video was accurate for the period and not a pirate hook as you eluded to.

DonkeyWalrus124d ago

The pirate thing was a joke. There may have been some women involved, sure, but show me a single disabled English woman actually fighting on the frontlines.

MrVux000124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

I don't know who was your professor in the history class, but there were no documented British female ***soldiers*** during WW2, the only ones that were truly ***soldiers*** were on the Eastern front deployed by the Russians.

This is why the OP stated that the game is a "alternate WW2" representation and not the real thing.

And that is without mentioning the prosthetic arm gripping a full auto Thompson machine gun and even worse, a ‎Springfield bolt action sniper riffle...

MrVux000124d ago (Edited 124d ago )

Sending a message and blocking before someone could reply...very rude indeed.
