DICE says just making Battlefield 2042 maps bigger for 128-player matches won't work, game uses a new design mentality called "clustering."
Well it sounds interesting, but I will have to see it in action before I'm a believer, the main problem I see is lag, because on Battlefield 4 the reg. games would be fine but once you jumped in a 64 Vs 64 it was crazy, not too much lag but enough that it was not smooth like a reg. rush game... So kinda hoping this has dedicated servers this time around... Game is looking amazing for PS5, can't wait Since I will get the cross-bundle but will probably mostly play on PS5.. Let's just hope the old DICE is back, that one that use to make amazing Battlefield Games...
Most modern battlefield games have had dedicated servers, especially the most recent good battlefield (4).
That's good if it improves playing the game all around. Looking forward to this "clustering" in action.
Yup not sure about lag, never had that issue with battlefield games. COD is a different story
Every BF game has dedicated servers. I think that's one of the main advantages it has over COD which has used P2P servers for the longest time. Now it (COD) uses some sort of hybrid servers but BF should be safe. I'm already thinking of renting a server (provided they allow it again).
It has many advantages over cod now. Agreed with your server comments though.
BF and dedicated servers. That's how the chaos is handled so well.
They want "clustering," make another Close quarters DLC :)
I quite enjoyed Close Quarters dlc. BF3 had a fantastic collection of dlcs.
BF3 DLC and the Vietnam DLC for BFBC:2. The only DLC I felt I didn't get ripped off.
I feel like MAG took this same approach, albeit their maps also incorporated a lot of symmetry when scaling the maps up to 128 v 128.
This game sounds like a cluster.
MAG also worked in clusters, with a final central objective featuring all 256 players.
This article is 3 paragraphs long. One third of that is just a block quote.
EA love all you sheaps that go spending +70€ on a game that haves 7 MP Maps!Amen lord,they all deserve the cluster fuck gaming has become ....dam SHEAPS! Its the new mentality...sorry design mentality the Devil says....and the sheaps follow!
Sheap? What on earth is that?
You managed to spell "sheep" wrong 3 times in a row, which implies you just don't know how to spell it. But please, keep telling people how dumb they are for being excited for this game.
