EA has confirmed more details about Battlefield V.
“BF5 Trailer Featured 'In-Engine Footage” In game > In engine I’m not falling for it anymore.
Well, all Dice's games look incredible so I'm sure this game will too.
I´m happy that DICE cast a STFU spell on the haters and naysayers! No loot boxes! No Pay to Win! Only cosmetics MT´s. DAY ONE!!!!!!
“... represents...” key word. You are correct
Sooo were going to act like the battlefield games haven't been great graphically?
Battlefield 1 is one of the best looking shooters, 3 and 4 looked good if you had a decent PC. Hardline was an ugly game for sure, the artwork was so uninspired.
@Movefasta1993 Apparently we are gonna act like Battlefield 1 didn't look phenomenal on top of being a great game. Definitely don't pre-order the game or trust EA to not mess something up but are we really gonna try and act all skeptical on whether the game is gonna look good lol? Even Battlefront as bad as it was still looked good. I have no love for EA (they are trying to ruin Bioware whose games I love) but some of these hate trains y'all hoping on for some likes are silly lol.
This isn't COD, Dice has always been good for graphics with BF.
In engine aka not in game aka pointless
That 'in engine footage was so pre done it wasn't even funny
Yep but Dice never disappoint with graphics. Let's be honest here.
Yeah well we'll see EA...you'll make up your money somewhere else it's just about how. You can't believe these guys straight away, that's how EA gets you
we know how, its called tides of war. You buy a pass which grants you access to content that is available for a certain period of time. When that expires, you lose the content and can no longer play it, and then you buy a pass for the next content. No thankyou, just no
No you don't stop spreading lies.
So subscribe to your ISP, to subscribe to your console's online features, to buy an online game, just to subscribe to it's later content? Fuck that. Too many people asking for monthly payments just to play a game. I'll stick to my dying single player games. Also, cosmetic MT's are trash. They'll make you look so out of place in a WWII setting, that you have to pay if you want any realism... The thought that someone sat in a board room and threw that idea out is shocking.
where did you ever see them talk about the bullwank you just spewed?
So you think EA are going to give you free DLC? for the lifetime of one of their bigger franchises? They have not stated Tides of War will be free, they have just said everyone will have access to the same modes and maps. Modes and maps is called multiplayer. "EA hasn’t actually said how they will monetize Battlefield 5, however, there will be cosmetic items in the game which we could see free versions of cosmetic items and paid versions."
If they are only cosmetic and don't impact how you play them I really don't care one way or another. The big whales can waste their money.
Loot boxes will come later..
"Microtransactions Will Be Cosmetic Only, No Lootboxes". I can imagine that was said with so much internal sadness.
Don't forget the line where they said you can purchase "premium currency." I'm sure the cost of items and boosters, and the grind need to acquire them will make up for the "no loot boxes"
It's not pay to win and all microtransactions are cosmetic only. It's in the title. The things you just mentioned would be pay to win.
Sure corn, EA said something IT MUST BE TRUE
@ Razmiran To be fair I don't know of a single time that EA outright lied. They might hold back information. But they've never said a game would have no pay to win MT's or loot crates and then stuck them in anyway. They've always been pretty straight forward with their shady tactics lol. Even it meant waiting until a beta to reveal it. But there's no way they would come out and say no pay to win MT's and Loot Crates and all DLC is free, and then turn around not do that. Especially after the Battlefront 2 disaster. I understand EA has done a lot to hurt their own reputation. But let's be realistic. They wouldn't go out of their way to announce these things and then go back on that. Thinking they would is kind of being stubborn. Again, I agree with being cautious. I am too. But that also means accepting what they announce. The second they do something different than what they said, bail on them. That's my plan. But so far everything looks and sounds great for this game, and anything else is just speculation.
Nope. They still win this way.
That guy in the picture looks like a very toned down Kratos
Lol he does Mini-Kratos
"Microtransactions Will Be Cosmetic Only, No Lootboxes" wait seriously? i legit thought each year EA gonna pull the same trick as they did with SWBF2 by having the game originally with lootbox for progression and only removing them a few months. maybe they actually listened?
they have, tides of war
i didn't follow, what is tides of war and how are the MTX gonna play out in that mode?
Basically like seasonal content. Still no details on whether it will cost or not, but bet your bottom dollar it will
No, they figured it out. Launch without lootboxes, add them later
Cosmetic only you say? What about getting rid of season pass and going with tides of war, where you pay for a pass for limited time content? I'd take microtransactions any day over paying for a service and not owning the content
No MT but charging for GAAS chapters. Tides of War and post-release content Post-release, Battlefield V will adopt a the live game model and seasons of content, which they’re calling Chapters. There’s a little reading between the lines on how they intend to run this, but there will be a mixture of player milestones leading toward special skins and cosmetics and DICE remixing the game’s content in different ways. Assignments will be both daily, which DICE intend to be easy enough that everyone can achieve them, as longer term Special Assignments and chains of assignments to follow. It seems you’ll have to actively queue up assignments to earn progress toward them, but will have multiple ways to complete them, either through skill or time and effort. Each Chapter is set to be multiple months in length, but within that a calendar of limited time events will take place. The centre piece will be the Grand Operations which DICE will use to either explore history or propose ‘What if?’ scenarios. That could see paratroopers be used in theatres of war where they weren’t, or go the other way and restrict weapons, classes and vehicles to only include those that were available for a particular historical battle. The first Chapter starts in November, shortly after the game launches, and will continue through to early 2019, themed after the fall of Europe. Is there a Premium Pass? There is no more premium pass. Post-release support will come via Tides of War and the live game updates.
Regardless of the "in-game engine" thing, this could be the game that makes players cheer for Dice again and beat COD. From what's been seen, the game has quite a lot of single-player content, and the no-frills multiplayer with heavy customization and no lootboxes is very much welcome. Black Ops 4 already dropped the ball with trying to ape the battle royale fad and ditching single-player, so it's Dice's game to win.
Man this game has so much more going for it that wasn't said at the reveal...dice really dropped the ball but YouTuber have stepped in and started giving exclusive info that they were told/scene https://reddit.app.link/KMn...
That video got me pretty excited about the game, trailer didn't do it for me at all. Lots of cool changes, though I'll have to see it all in action first.
Battlefield 1 already beat COD and was leagues better than any COD released this gen.
Don’t know what you’re seeing but this game looks a lot different than Battlefield 1...
(smile) Sure it dose....
Um....it does. Like, a LOT different. If people thought it looked like BF1 then you wouldn't be the only one saying it.
but i'm not
Out of all the things people have been complaining about, looking like Battlefield 1 is not one of them. Sorry man. If you actually paid attention to all the changes and watched gameplay then Battlefield 1 shouldn't even be entering anyone's mind.
I'm sure that's true in your small circle of friends. And the videos you might like to watch....but in the real wold......
Nope. In fact, I have yet to see a single comment on N4G mention that it looks like BF1. Except yours of course.
well. now you have....stop living in your bubble.
How about no microtransactions period. Cosmetics should be items you unlock in the game.
There has to be a level of compromise. The price of video games hasn't gone up since the release of Xbox 360. This is an online game where they're offering all DLC and maps for free. You don't have to pay for anything to keep playing with the entire community. There's nothing wrong with selling some very optional cosmetic items to help the devs continue supporting the game as well as adding new content on a regular basis. All games sell things post launch nowadays. Whether its cosmetic items or DLC content. People can't expect devs to continue supporting games indefinitely without income. Especially games where most of the game is played online through servers. Server maintenance. Maps. Story missions. New objectives. New seasonal content. New Weapons. Creating all this stuff takes time and money. This game is offering quite a bit for free post launch. More than most games. It's fine to sell some optional stuff that has no bearing on gameplay. It's more than most devs are still doing these days.
Yeah, it DEFINITELY became obvious after the characters moved.
Free DLC for all but microtransactions present for skins. I think this is a very fair trade of to be honest. I much rather have the choice to buy a skin I want than gamble in hope to get the one I want.
This is the thing that makes me cringe at the video game community at times. The ONLY thing that costs money now are cosmetic items. Yet people still want to complain. Most games would be offering a season pass for content to keep playing with the whole community. Or DLC Map packs. Or loot crates. EA took all of that away and just left cosmetic items for purchase, and people still complain. What a joke some people are.
In-engine, game-engine who really cares. I rarely buy Dice's game yet I know they always deliver when it comes to graphics.
And you know ppl will be paying 10 $ for ingame currency to buy prostetic arm, give me standard ww2 uniforms and i will wear only this !
So what. That's their decision. It's still a million times better than tying actual in-game progression to how much money you dump into crates that don't even guarantee you any progression.
I love BF. But I am really happy seeing shooters aint doing well as it used to be.
Certain YouTubers such as JackFrags, AngryJoe, etc. got a 3 hour pre-brief of the game's multiplayer before the reveal. They say the game plays completely different to Battlefield 1, especially the gunplay, and that there are huge gameplay changes and such. They say, and I think we can all agree, that the trailer did the game no justice as it didn't convey the ambitiousness of the actual game. So, we will have to wait a few weeks until EA Play... Before we can see this game blow Call of Dookie Wack Ops 4 out of the water.
