Get your first look at the next generation of Battlefield – all-out warfare is back like you’ve never seen it before!
That looked sick! Looking forward to the gameplay!
Idk I'm definitely in the minority but the trailer just wasn't impressive to me at all.aybe the gameplay trailer will be better. This is just a reveal trailer though. Still love BF.
Yeah the trailer looked too wacky for BF. More like something you'd expect for Fortnite or something. That jet move and flying through a tornado? c'mon. I did like seeing the Shanghai deja vu there though. Taking a heli to the top and letting those cannons loose was good fun in IV
They are also targeting the CoD demographic this time after the success of MW'19 and Warzone. A new F2P BF battle royale was also considered ... maybe later?
It was just too goofy looking to me. Still I have to admit it's still MILES better then BFV trailer. Ugh...BFV trailer still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I am looking forward to the gameplay reveal though. I'm sure it will be the best BF yet.
I think they have ran out of ideas to be honest but we all know that in the actual game will be nothing like the trailer.. What would make it good is bullet damage - for eg if you get blown up legs and arms fly everywhere you cannot get revived by medic, but if you only get shot by small arms fire and get downed you still can get revived by teammates etc… I just hope it’s not like battlefield 5 mechanics they went backwards compared to battlefield 1
@ crazycoconuts Jumping out of a jet, killing the enemy/jet, and landing back in your jet is something that could be done in previous Battlefield games.
Yeah I felt like it was mostly pre rendered and a standard frostbite look was applied I'll wait for gameplay footage but it didn't make me go woah actually the last bf game that stunned me graphically was probably BF3 even bfv on PC looked like it had a layer of plastic applied to everything.
@crazy coconuts The jet move is a Battlefield classic - this video is from BF3, but it was actually done way back in BF 1942: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
This is looking seriously good. So glad they referenced the rendezook. (the epic jet kill from BF3) https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Yup I was waiting for this comment someone talking about the reference. I see what you did there.
Honestly IMO you can't judge the game based on a flashy cinematic trailer. Otherwise you could say the Just Cause Mobile game looks sick based off their "non-gameplay" trailer. Lets wait for the actual gameplay. IMO this looked a bit silly for a game that has historically been a bit more grounded.
Sick? Like Covid-19 sick?
No campaign so no buy for me until it's on discounted sale. I like some Battlefield but I guess I'm getting old for stuff like this and not enough to buy it for only multiplayer.
There's no campaign? Where did you hear or read this?
"I think that's just something that enables us to really lean into what we are best at," Battlefield 2042 design director Daniel Berlin told Eurogamer about the lack of a single-player campaign - something that's been a series mainstay since Battlefield 3. "If you look at the DNA of the studio, what we've been doing for so long, we just said you know what, we're not going to have a traditional single-player campaign this time around, but we're going to put all that emphasis and all those resources into building depth into the multiplayer. Because that is what we do best." Source: https://www.eurogamer.net/a...
I am glad there is no campaign at least all the resources will have gone on MP and that what people play 99% of the time… I mean I have not even touched BF5 campaign
Honestly, the campaign for Call of Duty and most "war" games are so damn generic. Plus, people buy this game for the multiplayer anyways. Idk, until I see gameplay I'm not buying
The Battlefield 5 campaign was shockingly bad. I wouldnt have missed its occlusion. Although to be fair it was probably my least favourite online game in the series too
BFV's North Africa's open ended missions were kinda good. But that's about it. The whole "campaign" was criminally short.
I skipped BF5 after open Beta it just too casual for me. And I crave for campaign like BC2 but I guess they have to get something right again even if it meant ditching single player. I'm not their fanbase though and their fans are mostly into Multiplayer.
The problem with this is now where the price point will be though. Typically, Multiplayer only games have a hard time including enough content from day 1 to warrant a full retail price tag. On top of that, they already announced a battle pass, and I'm guessing there's going to be multiple currencies as well... Which makes me worry
No campaign, most likely filled with MTs or other things to make you pay more and a Battle Pass which again having it is the only way to get extra perks All for $70 May aswell stamp SUCKER on peoples heads
Lol the idea that anyone has cared about a Battlefield Campaign since the Bad Company series is laughable.
@JEECE Regardless, they should be striving for Bad Company quality At least if it's not all that great you're still getting something for your money and something that can be played when the servers eventually go down.
I'd rather just have them make a better multiplayer so that the servers stay populated longer. I still play Battlefield 1 (not the best Battlefield game, but pvp multiplayer offerings were so bad last gen compared to the prior gen that it's still the best option), and there are still plenty of good servers on PS4. However, there is a zero percent chance I'm going to go play the singleplayer in 4 years when those servers are dead. That's just a thing people say, but no one, including you, actually means it. It's honestly baffling to me why, after we emerged from the "every single player game needs a tacked-on multiplayer component" era and singleplayer studios started putting all their focus on what they are best at, people can't understand that the same logic works in reverse.
EA has stated the battle pass will be cosmetic only with a free and premium option. Similar to COD I'd assume. We will see when it happens but I'm hoping they aren't going to lie considering all the backlash they have gotten with BF5 and Battlefront 2.
Oh no! Gamers who like different things! Tell me, how many have you played and how often do you bother replaying any of them? My guess? You don’t even play these games so why should we care?
@JEECE the fact that there is no campaign is not the problem but they are charging full price on both last and this gen which is the problem! MP only FPS for $60 and $70 current gen?? if their plan is to mimic CoD BO4, they are very late to the party already and CoD Warzone is the same thing and THAT is F2P!
I do expect to see a fair number of comments like these, but I think EA learned their lesson on this when, after years of hearing people whine about campaigns, no one cared about the campaigns in Titanfall 2 and Battlefront 2.
Titanfall 2 campaign was the highlight. That was the best reviewed aspect of the game. Every level had an innovative twist to it.
The campaign is one of the main reasons I still recommend Titanfall 2 to friends.
People praised the campaign in Titanfall 2 though Battlefront 2's campaign was awful because they put no effort into it and the story was laughable. Here's a die hard Empire fanatic who swears herself to the Empire despite seeing the Death Star II blow up...5 MINUTES LATER...she's one of Leias trusted rebels. Maybe people don't care as much because most of the time they put no effort into them when they should be, rather than going "EA you guys need to improve the single player and put some heart into it" it's now "EA I don't mind you removing the single player and charging the same price for the game, I'll buy whatever you want". Yet in the next breath it's then "EA are awful, why do they treat gamers like this, like we are idiots" ...
"no one cared about the campaigns in Titanfall 2" ~ you are kidding right? Its one of the most lauded FPS campaign in past generation.
@everyone I should have clarified; I'm aware of the critical reception for TF2's campaign. I mean that people didn't care in that it didn't help the game sell. People talked this big game about "no campaign, no buy," and then when Titanfall 2 added a campaign (which we've established was actually good in terms of quality), those people still just bought COD instead (and ironically probably didn't play the campaign in that). So when I say EA learned their lesson, I'm saying they learned that the people who act like the presence of a campaign is going to be a major influence on purchasing are either a very tiny but loud minority or just full of crap.
There will be offline modes you can play to just go against bots. There wont be a story but it's the closest thing to single player. You'll even be able to just do a match with your online squad vs only bots.
There is. You can play on a server full of nothing but bots if you want. And you can also have a full multiplayer match that fills spots with bots until real people join also.
The games multiplayer is the story. It’s being told in seasonal chapters. As a 31 year old dad gamer, I’m still all for it
If this seriously has no campaign, then they can keep it. In fact, they can keep it anyway. EA/Dice have taken one too many dumps from on high in the past couple of years. The jokers are asking 70 quid for this shit too? Shove it. I don't care how good it looks. It ALWAYS looks good...then you play it and lo and behold, it doesn't look half as good as the trailer, then the bugs, the microtransactions, the unfinished game. Oh my...
what no campaign?, the hell with this BF then, not to mention it seems more of the same.
Was just 5 minutes of non-sensical cuts and noise. Terrible.
Plenty of boring early access military realism sims on pc if you don't like fun.
Lmao fr. There’s a really poor underfunded market for the hardcore shooters he’s after on pc. It’s underfunded because they’re not usually fun lmao. Tarkov is really the only decent one atm and squad. Talk about painful experiences and hours of boring gameplay though
@knightedHollow Legitimate question, what are these better military fps games you speak of that aren't on PC? I'm just assuming you aren't talking about COD or Rainbow Six: Siege (at least I hope not). I enjoyed Tannenberg, but the community for games like that on console fades pretty quickly (whereas BF1 still has solid servers).
I don't think it was terrible was just not impressed. It was too goofy and silly. It just didn't feel like a proper battlefield trailer, the trailer just made no sense at all. Now BF1 trailer that was a good reveal trailer sure it used a popular song but it was heart pounding, right to the point, full of action that actually makes sense like you knew what was going on in the trailer, and there was nothing silly about it with those set pieces compared to the BFV and new trailer. I think the gameplay trailer will be better. Either way I am looking forward to the next BF.
Yeah, BF1 had a good reveal trailer. But the game sucked balls. And as silly as this trailer was, its much more true to how an actual game of BF goes. People have this weird idea that BF games are like ultra realistic military games, but they aren't. Matches are silly and silly things happen in them.
if they would have called this Just Cause 4 MP mod, I would believe it!
Better than BF1 trailer which was pretty good not gonna lie. Gameplay footage on 12th June people, just wait 3 more days. This trailer is just for visuals and hype.
Gotta disagree with that. BF1 trailer was straight and to the point, you knew what was going on with the action and set pieces and it wasn't silly at all. BF 2042 trailer was just all over the place, it was too goofy and silly to me.
That scene where the pilot ejects out of his jet with a rocket launcher, somehow manages to shoot it midair, then lands safely back on his jet.... I was like, is this Just Cause? @3:50 the tornado shows up..... yep. XD
That jet scene was a tribute to fans of BF3. That actually happened in BF3 multiplayer.
Ha, cool deal!
Loopzuke is as old as the very first battlefield game bf1942
LordofCritics is right. Someone pulled it off and it was STUPID epic. Them paying tribute to it was pretty freaking cool if you ask me. https://youtu.be/5FFXQvvjL4...
Its called rendezook
Yep, I've seen it now. Very cool!
False. It’s loopzook https://youtu.be/k-wFI9vTqt...
No Motorstorm: Apocolypse
If you know, you know.
Looks incredible but we gotta wait for gameplay
Looks like Battlefield is back on the menu...
Like someone in the video comments said. ''THE GAMING DROUGHT IS OVER''
Man that looked awesome. Sure, no gameplay, but we know with them it's supposed to be indicative of how gameplay will feel. LOTS of destruction, chaos, and crazy antics. I noticed how every scene had TONS of people in it. Makes me think the rumor of 128+ player matches is going to be true.
I agree, it looked FUN, which bf seems to have been lacking recently.
It will be 128 players on next gen consoles and pc, it'll be 64 (I think) on last gen consoles.
That's fine with me! I wonder if it will be crossplay on current gen and PC. Given they will have more players.
Anybody who’s played BF3 & BF4 can only imagine having to deal with some guy hiding in a dark corner getting cheap kills with that robot dog all match long. Thanks DICE, maybe BFV aint so bad.
Played it? No. Stfu.
So don't play it.
No, BFV is still bad, imo.
