DICE took the time to compile a list of all the changes that have been made to Battlefield Bad Company 2 since the PS3 beta went live several weeks back. It's a big list.
Nice to see the ps3 beta info being put to good use.
Indeed. Nice to see DICE are actually working to improve their game rather than a certain other dev that put out a glitchy BETA for a full retail price. *cough* IW *cough*
IW lied to us aswell, they said they werent having a beta ;)
so many, many good tweaks in fixes in that list. This game is in my top 5 for 2009 and I.Cannot.Wait....! GT5 GOW3 KILLZONE 3 BFBC2 Heavy Rain
you mean 2010?
ahh yes, 2010. Thanks! =)
wow ..so much changes !!! i see that feedback was put into good use to improve the online part
I will not have to deal with laggy servers like MW2 anymore. And I will not have to deal with stupid auto-aim that make me overcompesate my shots.
Lol they have been busy little swedish beavers havent they. Any more word on the pc beta, is it going to be open or what?
It's going to be the same as the PS3 beta. Lots of key give-aways from FilePlanet and GameSpot and sites like that, as well as pre-order keys.
PC beta has a different map if memory serves.
Yeah, it's the ice map.
When I first saw this, I never thought it would see that many Changes/Fixes. The good thing is that pretty much all of them are great fixes that will help game play.
they did an incredible job in fixing all the problems I had with the beta, plus many things they added that are great. I can't wait for this game to be released, I have to clear my backlog soon so I can enjoy it properly.
so glad to hear they improved the gun models and scope details. they already looked solid in the beta, but sometimes the scopes felt detached from the gun. also "Bolt action sniper rifles will chamber the next round if the trigger is pressed twice while zooming." i like that a lot as well. and this is the biggest wtf "The Ammo Box, Medkit, Defibrillator, Repair Tool, and Motion Sensor are now unlocks for each class." what is left for the classes now?
I think that maybe means they are unlocks for each of the respective classes. I don't think it means every class gets them (i.e., snipers get paddles). Although, a sniper with a defrib as a weapon would be fun instead of being the sniper and getting zapped!
oh i see what you're saying. that makes a lot more sense.
the beta was as good as done! Props to DICE for the super-balancing act. This game will steal my time for sure! Just like most other Battlefield games of the past. Hopefully they'll add a few more game modes, and make it more friends list friendly.. like IW did in MW2 on the PS3 online friends implementation from menu into the XMB. That was slick. Now, if only the EA reps would shut the fukc up and stop despertely trying to pump this game up for no reason.. they're doing the DICE boys a disfavor..
good stuff! only 60ish more days till this amazing game hits!
Take note IW, this is how you're supposed to do a beta before your games release, not after the game has released and we're all playing it.
would have been so long and a lot of work for IW. Probably why they decided not to do it. So they only have to focus on the major glitches once the game released and people would have to settle for a lot of small bugs and unbalance.
...There are certainly some good tweaks but I hoped they would have increased the damage of all the weapons and added GOING PRONE !! OR if there only was a hardcore mode like in MW2. Im a big fan of the series but I expected more this time.. DICE ???!!! dont let the hardcore gamers down !!
you CAN go prone, you just gotta buy the PC version of the game ;) consoles cant run the proper resolution and its difficult to see the snipers laying down. yes, it is kinda lame, but keep in mind that EVERYONE would start being a sniper and would be laying down at medium to close range instead of long range (like a sniper is supposed to be). the game would suck if everyone was a sniper. even sniper lovers have to agree with that!
There will be no prone, it's useless. And there is a Hardcore mode.
yea when sniping from a distance the game didn't adjust the size of the blood splatter, making it look like ur targets were exploding... 1. its good that they've toned down the vehicles armor, in other games u couldn't take out vehicles in 1 life, youd have 2 die to restock on ammo 2. that patio glitch wuz ANNOYING! ud spawn underground if ur mate wuz there and the only way out wuz to kill yourself 3. glad there's now a warning so falling buildings don't suddenly kill you 4. sad they put protection on turrets. i liked shooting peepl n the face thru that lil gap :! 5. also the effective turn-sprint thing is welcome, it wuz almost forcing u to run in a straight line
I wish they didn't take it out. It looks so awesome!
well in other games you can lie on the ground as much as you want and it doesnt spoil the game. Not everyone wants to snipe all the time... Its more about situations when someone is shooting at you - its essential and logic that you hit the ground..
I don't suppose the controls are now 100% customisable? I'd love to remap them so they are the same as CODs, its just to awkward for me to use R3 for crouch and O as use, after playing all my other games.
BATTLEFIELD BAAAAAAAD COMPANY F T W!!!!
