With the Battlefield 5 reveal set for this Friday, more hints have been dropped by industry professionals about it.
I'll remain skeptical. While I've always enjoyed BF, none of them have ever been as good as 'insiders' have said. None have ever hit the heights that BF2 managed to hit, more than likely a consequence of diverting much needed time into a single-player mode. Not to mention that if Battlefront is anything to go by, my hopes are far from high.
Well, Battlefront left out single player altogether. But I feel that it was a half-hearted effort, with them already busy with Mirror's Edge Catalyst and this new Battlefield
Half hearted effort is putting nicely. They legitimately did not get a f**k about Battlefront. No single player campaign, no loadouts, nothing like the original games. They didn't even care enough to make it at minimum have the same features that any of the recent Battlefield games have. They sold it on name alone. Oh but I guess pretty graphics is good enough for most people. I used to say that Bioshock Infinite was the game that has let me down the most out of my 20+ years of gaming, but that has now gone to Battlefront.
It was a minimum effort game. Looked fucking gorgeous but that was it... Became dead within a year and sucked. If they want a MP ONLY game they need a lot more than fucking dance moves.
Agreed, they might have bitten more than they can chew. I wasn't thrilled by the Mirror's Edge Catalyst beta.
I'm making over $10k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. Go to tech tab for work detail...This is what I do.. www.earnmore9.com
Battlefield need to go back where its started... 1942... everything else will be a waste, enough with that future/modern/infinite warfare.........
I'm still waiting for a Battlefield to be on par or better than Bad Company 2. That game was a milestone on my time with the 360. So much fun and even had an enjoyable satirical campaign that was a breath of fresh air compared to the overly serious FPS campaigns. Multiplayer was some of the best ever made imo. Granted, I never played much of BF2 since I've never been a PC gamer predominately and the BF2: Modern Combat game for the 360 wasn't that good in my opinion.
BF2 is like the holy grail of battlefield. God i miss that game. Bad company 2 was also very good, but nothing compares to BF2 :)
Played both bad companies, bf3 and bf4, BF1943, and BF3 in ,my opinion is by far the best. Though I got it several months after launch, so I didn't have to put up with any of the connection issues launch titles usually suffer from. Also got the BF3 season pass for free during the bf store glitch, and that had so much content it was like a brand new game. And I played BF3 on ps3 too. The controls, even with the input lag (which I ended up preferring, the 2nd patched version I believe) were smooth as butter, the maps were great, the weapons, hell, even the sounds are far better than BF4. I played BF4 on ps4, and shortly afterwards, switched to BF3 on ps3, and the audio is far better in BF3 for some reason. With the season pass content, BF3 surpassed my previous favorite, Call of Duty 4, as my most beloved multiplayer shooter. BF3 for me is most definitely MY holy grail battlefield game.
No love in this chain for BF2142? BF2 and BF2142 are amazing. I really liked 1942 & 1943 and BF3 as well. BF4 was a huge letdown and i know im a minority but i liked BF hardline.
BC2 multiplayer was soooo much fun...even when getting spawn raped (which was it's main negative), but it was the single player that shined, in my opinion. I mean, what other military shooters would have the protagonists debating on such important topics as super powers and the movie Predator?
I feel the same, Bad Company 2 was a hell of a game i had so much fun but i don't think they can reproduce what was good about that game, time has changed now everyone is focused on crappy multiplayer games that are dead on arrival...
So what if BFBC2 came with BF5, even the MP with all of the DLC? Would that sweeten the pot even more? I loved BC2, I actually loved the campaign, and it was one of my first experiences with online MP, blow my friggen mind! I have never spent more time in a BF game. Never.
How big is dice I mean they have worked on battlefront, mirrors edge 2 and now battlefield 5 and they all released so close to one another. That's probably why battlefront had so little content I mean no developer can work on 3 massive games simultaneously and have lots of content.
As big as EA wants them to be, apparently.
DICE didn't make Battlefront. Don't listen to the marketing, "from the makers of Battlefield." It was made by DICE Los Angeles. They were originally called EA Los Angeles and then Danger Close. They made the Medal of Honour games, including the horrible Warfighter. *Some* DICE employees moved to the studio, but it's not really a DICE studio. DICE Los Angeles is a studio that has had to change its name multiple times to get away from the crap games it made in the past.
Good for you. I've enjoyed all the Battlefield games. They're my favorite military-type shooters. I'm super excited to see what they've done with Battlefield 5.
I think basing your expectation of the new Battlefield on Battlefront is a mistake. Battlefront is a casual experience through and through. Battlefield is an unstoppable machine. I am infinitely hyped. GOTY 2016.
Bf4 is easily one of this gens gems. Hands down their best work. Aside from a nusense "friend" infrastructure.
Give dice some credit, while battlefront was one of the most shallow games and I had my fill in a three night rental, it was a technical masterpiece from a graphical and sound standpoint.
Little bird told me it's about time travel. Little bird = own brain But the clues I've heard point to it. I heard ww1 then ww2 the future then ww2 again...why not have them all with time travel? Thet would surprise gamers at least

Make sure it works from launch this time :)
I know man... Was so excited when I bought an X1 and BF4 the same day, but pissed that I could not play it for a couple months since it was straight BROKE lol
BF4 became a great game in my opinion. But it had such a bad reputation by the time it was working. Hopefully they learnt.....
Still plenty of players online BF4 on PS4, no difficulty in finding games. But if it worked from launch there would probably be more players online now.
Here's hoping it gets fans excited and makes them happy.
I think it'll be a good game and I think it'll be a great game when compared to it's peers. these days "average" is the new the"good". In my opinion the multiplayer shooter market is up for grabs. Just look at the landscape, people are actually excited for a cod remaster😒. if that's not a sign that the shooter genre is up for grabs then I don't know what is.
Overwatch may disrupt the FPS market much like World of Warcraft did with MMORPGs. Blizzard's magic may work once again
I can definitely see this happening. Knowing Blizzard they would never 'try and see' anything, if they are doing a new genre/type of game its because they plan to dominate it that particular landscape for years. Don't forget WoW's appeal and subscribers are diminishing day by day for sometime now. Blizzard needs the next WoW and persistent online FPSs are today's thing. On topic, I would love to see Dice bring some of that Bad company quirkiness back to the franchise, in other words do their own fps again not try and get closer to CoD.
Well ita COD4 the pinnacle of the series.
Right, but that's with the nostalgia glasses on. Not sure if COD4 right now, as is, will be as appealing. We'll see
Once again? So another shitty launch then?
Your Avatar matches your comment.
Don't jinx it!
I swear to God Foxtrot I think sometimes you don't even care about making a point - you just like to see your own post count go up.
I was making a point. Saying "once again" while Battlefield 4 took almost a year to become something which should have been at launch. Jesus.
It's sad that so many lickspittles and apologists are trying to defend them after all the broken games they've released.
It's sad that the same people complaining about Battlefield 4's launch are a lot of the same people that defend Bethesda's games.
@ermac shots fired , I repeat shots fired...lol
Im with foxtrot here why does anyone need to defend the fact that battlefield 4 launch was just plain awful it of course wasnt as crappy as battlefront now that was a joke lmao nothing but graphics and good sounds with that game thats all no SP or anything and remember its EA they will crush your dreams.
Fox made his point after I called him on his op. Let's not be so dramatic. If your dreams are hung on these games you should step back and take a deep breath.
Battlefield single player is a disastrous monstrocity. They need to completely overhaul the vehicle engine aswell. It might work for tanks and choppers, but hardline really showed how ugly cars run on it.
After how awful their last SP was they should just drop it and focus on MP and fixing all the bugs their new things like "levolution" create. Hopefully they fixed that garbage where you fall out of a car if you drive through a few feet of water, and that extreme slowdown when you transition into water in tanks (done to prevent the stupid "driving fast underwater in the pond" bug). I know the game will be fun eventually, but it's unwise to get all hyped with all their past failures.
But if they drop single player, it gets controversial about paying for it full price.
I enjoyed Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4's campaigns. They were solid, imo.
Or make an epic 20 hour campaign
Or make a literal campaign*, not a story. Especially if it's based on a historical setting. Let us play through the actual battles and compliment it with narration about the war and briefs and debriefs. Just set the levels on the actual maps, modified and scripted to play out the battles the way they actually happened. It'd be back to Battlefield's roots, be better than the "campaigns" of recent games, and would still satisfy those asking for a single player campaign while using predominately the assets already created for the multiplayer maps. Win/win/win situation. *"a series of military operations intended to achieve a particular objective, confined to a particular area, or involving a specified type of fighting."
Rumors pointing to WW1 with 'prototype' guns to add variety.
WW1 rumours are strong. But could also just be a story "flashback" mission ppl (allegedly) saw ...
Not too sure. The original 'leak' came from a retailer site. It's unlikely their posting was from a demo they saw, and more likely it was from bullet points given to them from EA.
I would personally prefer a Vietnam or future setting. WW2 has been done to death and would have fewer options for weapons and vehicles, and less flexibility for the narrative. Although it could still be awesome if done right.
I really want to see Korea, but it will never happen. That was the first war in which jet planes were really used, but it still had propeller planes. It'd have a lot of awesome variety and explore fairly uncharted territory in regards to its setting.
WHAT IF...I mean WHAT IF, battlefield 5 was set in the near future but as an apocalyptic shooter. If i remember rumors earlier this year or late last year said it was called Battlefield Apocolypse. It could be near future as rumored after a nuke, something NO ONE expected as stated, and the destruction could be still intact for obvious reasons. Think of the story too, a world in rubble with a strong central group of characters to run the story with for online co-op! I think that would be awesome
Kinda hoping for Civil War or maybe Revolutionary War!
lol could you imagine a civil war HAHAHHAHAHAHHA Single shot rifles battlefields with no cover. Civil war would not work for BF imo
Revolutionary war would be doable for a shooter. Especially with forest maps or 'urban' settings. It'd be cool to be able to go inside buildings, hide on rooftops, or climb trees. A more close quarters shooter. I just don't see how you could make a fun civil war shooter, though.
I'm waiting for another Bad Company game. Why put out generic military shooters when you have something far more unique and, dare I say it, marketable up your sleeve?
I need Bad Company 3 but Asking for that every year almost feels like asking for Half-Life 3 every year :(
Bad Company 3 *fingers crossed*
That is the Battlefield everybody wants but nobody dares to expect.
My Favorite was BC2, but that's probably because I started with that on 360, BF3 was good and I put in at least 500hours into it, BF4 was about the same but a little harder and more refined than 3 (when the bugs were fixed) and I put about 400 hours into it. If the next BF is BC3 or WWI or WWII I will be happy!
Holy crap I don't know how people play video games so much. I've had battlefront since December and I thought I played a lot and I'm at like 46 hours. I was sad I spent 2 entire days playing videogames.
If playing a videogame for a few dozen hours makes you sad, searching for another hobby that lifts your spirit might be an option - just sayin'.
Oh I have lots of hobbies and spending thousands of hours sitting on my ass certainly isn't one of them.
I am trying to surmise how they did amazing work... again. I look at the last 3 major releases and cannot fathom how such a statement applies. We have BF4 which was eventually tuned but was a disaster for over 6 months. Battlefront???...nuff said. Hardline? Really. I am not sure when 'again' applies. I look at Dice on twitter attacking Activision for the latest COD reveal and I do not see the high horse on which Dice or EA have a right to sit. Fall off? Yes. Be thrown and kicked? Certainly. But no right to act superior to Activision and certainly no reason to think they did something wonderful again.
DICE didn't do Hardline...
That is why I said Dice or EA...
Get me on that hype train!! Gaming!!!!
No Sci-Fi garbage, the FPS genre can't take another Sci-Fi game.
