In the past, this has been a criticism of some of Battlefield's campaign, but EA and DICE are hoping this year's Battlefield will turn people's minds about single-player in Battlefield 1.
A world war campaign with strong emphasis on characters the same way Band of Brothers did it could be something truly special.
Didn't they do it with Medal of Honor, multiplayer wan developed by dice and single player with other developer and that game flopped hard.
The multiplayer in the Medal of Honor reboot sucked, but the campaign was very good.
Danger Close developed Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. EA shut them down after Warfighter due to the lackluster reaction.
I think DICE wasn't really sure on how to tackle the MP since they didn't want to just do Battlefield again so they created some fusion of CoD and Battlefield that was mediocre at best. Graphics were awesome at the time, but it just had little to no reason to keep playing with Battlefield and CoD already on the market. Campaign for MoH was cool, but Warfighter was absolute trash from end to end.
Danger close is now DICE LA by the way, or was turned into it.
It's probably because dice had that many games to work on all at once was way to much for them and they needed someone to come in and do the campaign while they focused on mp
I'll believe it when I see it .. not doubting you... but seeing is believing.
What about decent writers
People will disagree with me, (seeing how BF1 is all the hype), but COD campaigns have been generally much better than Battlefield campaigns. (well comparatively, you know) Just imagining a full blown WW1 campaign in 2016 makes me weee~. If DICE can really pull that off I would be so glad. COD campaigns were cliches as they come (except BlackOps1 maybe), so it shouldn't be too hard to make a good one if they actually are giving a damn. Looks like they are. Will wait for reviews anyway. ^^
@Singh Some of them were yes. I thought World At War, Black Ops I, Black Ops II, MW1, MW2, and COD2 had some pretty good campaigns for the Military FPS genre, but I liked Battlefield 3's campaign better than the other Call of Duty games I haven't listed and thought BF4's campaign was better than Advanced Warfare, Ghosts, and MW3. But yeah, hopefully BF1 does really well story, and gameplay wise. I sure hope so since I already preordered it for PC.
Well...I personally believe that Bad Company 1 and BC2 had phenomenal campaigns. I loved them a lot.
You read my mind. CoD campaigns were well written, every campaign felt almost like a real movie story. On the other hand Battlefield was for me always more about better multiplayer at the expense of weaker single player. What i like about cod is that they can really implement good dramatic scene/scenery like they are in war movies.
With every new game they've promised a better campaign and it always turned out disappointing. Not gonna get my hopes up.
Lets hope this time they actually mean it......jk this is EA afcourse they dont.
I actually enjoyed BF3's campaign. I was also oooo'ing and ahhhh'ing at the graphics on my shiny new PC. So maybe it had some extra appeal haha.
I wish they would bring back offline multiplayer with bots like BF2 had.
Apparently they may be adding bots to SW Battlefront, so I don't think its an impossibility.
battlefield was always meant to be a multiplayer only game...please,dice,dont fuck this up...atleast battlefield 4 is still going strong on ps4
I really don't care about SP on BF1. Just give us the best MP game you can even if the story is not there or terrible, probably wont play it anyway.
No criticisms for Bad Company Series though.
