Some took the news as Visceral purposefully holding back content from the main game so it could sell it later. But that's not the case, according to lead multiplayer designer Thad Sasser.
Visceral has a lot of balls. I have seen them time and time again taking shots at other devs. You made two good games. I got news for you Visceral Games - your so called "Battlefield" game is pure shit. There is OP vehicles, dumbed down multiplayer, and a lack of destruction. This game is not Battlwfield it doesn't deserve to have the name on it. This game will hurt battlefield because it basically means it is a annual release now instead of every 3 years like it was before (Or maybe it was two I'm not 100% sure) This game will fail pretty bad I believe because the beta turned me and a bunch of my Friends off and I know we weren't the only ones. Your servers better work at launch. I will play my 6 hour trial with EA Access but will not give them my money. I wanted a new horror game from them not battlefield
Yes you do, yes you do. I mean, it's EA we're talking about.
And it would be stupid to admit it, of course. If they are not holding back anything, why does a premium subscription even exist?
Visceral is EA, everything you just said is common behavior from them. You have to realize EA wants everyone to think the failures and pot shots are from the developers themselves so that in the event of a backfire, the studio can take the fall. IE Maxis
exactly...anything EA publishes from an EA absorbed studio...is an EA developed game which walks the drunken line of development by committee... this isn't the Visceral that made Dead Space and Dead Space 2...this is some of the Visceral that made those 2 games, and about 35 people wearing suits that are more interested in corner cutting and maximizing profit, even if it means letting yet another once decent franchise continue on its tail spin... the only answer is to STOP buying shit like this...
Yeah man, good opinion. I loved it. So I will be playing it as well as my friends. You see the reason why it won't fail is because for the gamers that it loses, is where they find gamers that they gain. Their premium may give you a few exclusive skins, 2 week early access to new DLC, as well as a hidden feature they've yet to announce, and the ability to enter tournaments and invite a friend to join you who is not a premium member. For all the hate premium gets when it comes to EA, this actually feels like a change and a step in the right direction. So I and my friends have bought the premium as well. You vote with your wallet and we will vote with ours. Happy Gaming <@:)
To be fair the lack of destruction isn't because they didn't try it's because Frostbite 3 is the worst engine out there and doesn't allow realistic physics to exist which makes destruction almost impossible unless it's pre-animated, let's just hope they make a new engine for the next Battlefield!
They all say that. It's complete B$. If it's not cut content then why is it announced as DLC prior to release? Yeah, I'll skip Hardline, thanks.
So anytime there is DLC announced before release it means it was cut from the game? Where's the logic in that? To me the important question will always be: is the main game good and is the amount of content satisfying? If it is, then there is nothing to be upset about. If you don't want the DLC then don't buy it. Bitching about DLC no matter what, without any other consideration, is just childish and illogical to me.
"So anytime there is DLC announced before release it means it was cut from the game?" Yes! Exactly this. Ofcourse it was cut from the game. Unless there was a separate dev team working on it while the main team concentrated on the main game, or unless it is developed once the main game goes Gold etc. The 'tell' is the fact that most if this DLC is cosmetic stuff that doesn't take a week to generate. They could have bundeld it as part of the game, where you 'unlock' the new skins and maps etc once you completed the game on Hard or extreme, or whatever. That's the way it used to be, before suckers started paying to 'unlock' the content that was already on the game disc they bought. A scam is a scam is a scam. We've fallen for it and are now defending it. But lets not pretend that it's some 'favour' that devs are giving us out of the kindness of their bleeding hearts under the guise of 'more content'. They want to maximise profits, and if this means selling a game in smaller bits to consumers, then they will do it. It is illogical NOT to consider this and to just blindly swallow the PR dribble.
so please buy, buy, buy no thanks, will save that money for battlefront or bf5
loving this game good job visceral:)
I played the beta and was not impressed, it felt like a step down from battlefield 4 also battlefield 4 is getting night maps and from what i have see they look great. I will pass on hardline.
You can say what you want but anyone with some common sense won't believe you. As long as your publisher is EA... well that says it all.
My Ass you are not holding! Otherwise how else you going to explain to shareholder?
Come on yes you are , dont play coy and with semantics . The missing parts were designed by committee . You already laid out a plan beforehand of what you're gonna be able to cut from release and only create afterward
A bet they are.
You said a game was coming , being made never did you say everything being create was going to be in the game So u have parts that just didn't flow with game story or telling, but if you can fine tune it so it fits & make a few more dollars by selling it go for it
A least with BF4 preorder we were getting the first expansion pack for free, with Hardline we get no shit for preordering. BF4 = 9 base maps + 4 free in expansion. Hardline = 9 base maps and that's it.. No thanks EA..
ummmm yeah you do if you go preorder a physical copy. Walmart/gamestop and others have their respective preorder thing. exclusive unique weapon skin, an assault rifle with some attachments already unlocked.
I am talking about the whole expansion pack featuring 4 maps, new vehicles and weapons, not a weapon a skin and fcuking battlepacks..
well then simply dont buy the game? Your complaint sounds more like entitlement whining then. Preorder appeal to different people. I could care less what I am getting for free as long as I can play at midnight. That's why I preorder.
Dragon Age:Inquisition was their only recent game not to cut content for DLC. F**K EA
WOW I honestly and truely believe what he or anyone at EA says... /s
