EA says that people will really be "blown away" by the Battlefield 2021 reveal trailer, and that it looks great on every platform
Pretty sure they'll have gameplay at MS E3 and day one on gamepass.
A good ol double dose of live services for everyone.
Didn’t they say this about cyberpunk 2077 “looks and play great on every platform” this is just total BS PR for you to run and buy the game so they can get your money before the shit show starts…
We don't know if the game is live service. I certainly hope not.
They will have something similar to COD's Season pass, if not the exact same system.
Day one on GamePass would be awesome!!
Doubt it! they might put it on EA pass 6 months down the line after they get all that dollar in
I really doubt it will be on gamepass day one, especially Pc game pass. If that were to happen Microsoft would have had severe diarrhea shitting EA up to the neck with money. I doubt either would take the risk of losing/gaining profit on BF. But then again, it’s microsoft.
If EA puts the game on EA Play Day 1 (which is highly likely) then it technically will be day 1 for Gamepass subscribers which makes it a Day 1 Gamepass release. People seem to forget that EA Play is included with Gamepass. I hope this is the case since I pay for Gamepass on PC.
@StonehYoshi Why is it «highly likely» that EA puts it on EA Play day one? They have never put any of their heavy hitters on EA play day one. Fifa 21 took 8 months to appear, Mass effect isn’t coming, Star Wars Squadrons and Jedi didn’t appear until months after. Have I missed something?
@StoneyYoshi EA HAS NEVER done that before and I doubt they will start doing it now. a 10 trial? Yes, but i think they had level caps in the last one
@Stupid @Nitro IDK guys, I recall playing The fallen order through EA play on PC on launch week. Thats even how I played Anthem Day 1 on PC and thankfully I never purchased it. I cant remember if I purchased BF5 or played through EA Play first. But thats what I remember being able to do. 🤷🏻♂️ Maybe its not exactly the same through GP? Oh wait!! Now that I've been thinking about it, that was EA Play Pro for PC which has new releases day 1. Sorry guys that was my mistake but technically neither of us were completely right lol. 😅 Heres a link that compares both subscriptions benefits. https://www.origin.com/usa/... Its 10 bucks more a month but worth it to try out games for a month rather than buying full price and hating the game. Just pay for the month of the new game release and cancel renewal.
https://in-ign-com.cdn.ampp... Its only rumor obviously it could probably never happen they don have EA's game collection on gamepass and even adding more recent titles on their. It's just like you said it is MS after all so who knows.
Yep and MS has $$$$$ to spend. Love it
Why would they put it in Gamepass on day one when they already have EA Play? It wont even be in EA Play day one, so why would they put it in Gamepass day one?
EA Play Pro for PC will have it Day 1. "Access to all of EA’s latest games- EA Play is 10 day trial, and EA Play Pro for PC is unlimited access." https://www.origin.com/usa/...
online fps with gamepass is a bad idea. talk about lag with mouse and keyboard wireless what makes you think internet connection would be good for multiplayer?
You are mixing up xcloud and gamepass....
Here's hoping the E3 showcase will be good, and whatever incentives they announce will be good to fans and players alike.
How about let the game do the talking. I’ve heard this over and over by developers only to be disappointed.
To be fair this is a financial report to investors, they've not asked media outlets to pick up on it or be doing nthe rounds with interviews regurgitating the same quotes.
I just don’t get why a financial report is public. And when i think of a financial report i think of an excel spreadsheet
Because they're a Public company.
Anybody remember how good ol' Phil Spencer was singing the praises of Halo Infinite to the rafters before it's conference reveal following Playstation's June showcase? He "felt good" about what Microsoft had to show after seeing what PS5 showed. What a joke. Nearly one year later the series x still hasn't produced a single first party game for the system.
Kind of hard to blow us away when you're releasing for a previous generation. I don't even own a current-gen console, but it's clearly going to be held back a good bit because of cross-generational development.
Not necessarily, the may have used the PS5/Series as the lead development platforms, and then turned certain assets off to run good on last gen.
Battlefield operated like this during the PS3/360 era. The consoles had their ports which were stripped back in terms of player and vehicle count. Whilst the PC had more of both. I imagine this will be the same.
Not trying to be a d*ck but please show me a cross-gen game that was built on current-gen as the lead development platform that looked miles away better than the version on last-gen. Cross-gen will always hold a next-gen game back. I have never seen anything cross-gen look exceptionally better than the last-gen version.
If they used any console as the lead then it isnt going to blow anyone away. Battlefield made a comeback because it was focusing on its roots...the PC. This game is going to be a mess, but it will sell because people are clowns.
@CrimsonWing69 Pretty sure i never claimed next-gen as the lead platform? I was simply saying that is what hypothetically, they may do. "show me a cross-gen game that was built on current-gen as the lead development platform that looked miles away better than the version on last-gen." Don't all cross-gen games look better than last-gen versions? otherwise, what is the point of PS5 and Series S|X?
"Don't all cross-gen games look better than last-gen versions? otherwise, what is the point of PS5 and Series S|X?" They don't that's my point. Miles Morales looked just like the PS4 version, there might be some improved framerate and raytracing, but no it isn't like cross-gen titles look night and day on different generations of hardware. Look at Resident Evil 8 on PS4 and PS5. Cross-Gen 100% holds back what a true "from the ground up" game for next-gen could be. This has always been the case since the days of the 360 like Peter Jackson's King Kong.
Or more likely build it for PS4 and it’s 100 million user base and just turn it up a bit for the newer consoles. 😑🥱🤣 I’m not worried about it looking great on all platforms as it should anyway whichever ones they choose to release on I want it looking great and by far the best on the new consoles and that won’t happen for another year or 2 until they drop the last gen. Which they won’t it’s all about the money not the experience or the quality they just wanna make money, not mine 😑👋🏻 29315;
@CrimsonWing69 I have to somewhat disagree, the games i have played using Series X, look, feel, and play a lot better than as opposed to on my One X. Sure, we have not got those WOW next-gen hard hitters on xbox, and these will not arrive till the end of this year and next (or whenever they choose to release on Series X only, the sooner the better imo). Sure they are currently only minor improvements over last-gen, and PS5 gamers are getting the better fruit from the tree at the moment, and i can not wait till install base on both next-gen platforms increase to push 3rd party to next-gen development only, i want to see what these SSD's and new tech in the consoles can do, because lets be honest, at the moment the tech is wasted. I think there is only R&C that is somewhat utilising the PS5's SSD, (not sure about returnal, someone will probably correct me on this) and at the moment, on xbox the only game slightly tapping into the tech is the Medium.
You’re assuming too much. I have no doubt that crossplay will not exist outside of those old generations of consoles should this game even get cross gen support
I didn't say anything about crossplay. I said it has a cross-generational development cycle.
Meh. Many shooters are very much alike and have been for a while. I'll take S&box which will have tons of fun game modes, and maybe B4B which I'll decide if it's good or not when the beta comes out this summer.
Uhh what console shooter right now plays like a good Battlefield game? Because right now everyone is chasing esports or the BR craze. I might have agreed with you in the PS3/360 gen, but now there's actually a dearth of solid team-based shooters on console that aren't just designed to push MTs.
Probably looks the same on both generations
If EA told Battlefield wont blow you away. That would be new! Huge doubts about that. Its a crossgen game made to work in many, many consoles....
Same old "hype" material battlefield has been spouting for years... after BF5, I'm very wary, but eager to see BF6. Especially if the leaked screens were accurate
Wait till you see the amount of Mt's
If they are just battlepacks again and only for cosmetics, meh.... No one cares about the skin on your gun when you're getting shot.
Battlefield 6 will be held back by 8 year old consoles* 😁😂 There I fixed it for ya
What are the MTs going to be like? Try answering this question before getting people excited.
they meant money from your bank will break away
This triggers me so much. Probably due to the PTSD that Cyberpunk gives me. Stop talking about a game before we have seen actual gameplay or a trailer at least.
Bring it. I'm a huge fan of BF series but for now Warzone is where it's at for me and my buddies. Would love to switch to something new.
I just want a good Battlefield game that I can get into again. Battlefield 1 was epic, I've never enjoyed one before or since though. Maybe bring back Bad Company?
Lol Built for Next gen... Puts it on Last Gen nah im good i will pick up the next BF thats only Next gen
Might skip cod ww2-2 this year if this is any good. If they can include smaller dare I say it cod style games then I'm in
No it won't it's a cross gen meaning 8 year old hardware is holding it back it'll never look as good as a current gen only game like Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart.
Lol it's amazing people still don't understand the issue with cross-gen after seeing the footage for that game.
If you ask me, i think 3rd party are already using the next-gen as the target platform. That is why we got cyberpunk xbox one which ran like dirt, whereas the next-gen iterations ran better. If xbox one/PS4 were the lead platform for a game like cyberpunk, it would have been the opposite way around. I am not worried about games looking great on next-gen, regardless of whether they release a port for last-gen.
Hope the rumors of it being more BF2/3 and less BF V & being on Game Pass day 1 are true.
I sure hope so since we have our new next gen consoles.
"Blown away" because it looks great, or because everyone's expectations are below sea level?
yeah, let’s believe what ea says. that’s gone so well in the past.
Hm i dont believe them tbh but heres hoping for the best
I'd rather have mirrors edge 3 than this
EA: Expect Acrimony.
every? why cant we be done with 2013.
