Something has broke.... looks down. is that water....

blumatt2847d ago

I can't wait to get my hands on this game. I've spent so many hours with Bad Company 2. I've never played a real Battlefield game before. (like BAttlefield 2)

BFBC2 isn't going to give you the full scope of any real Battlefield game, you'll be surprised how much more vast and open the gameplay is with this new game I hope. On a real Battlefield game, every map is like Harvest Day, except....bigger....much bigger. :D

Is everyone forgetting about the bonus assets? like UAV terminals, artillery gun batteries, bridges etc?

Epedemic2846d ago

So, how many points do we get for destroying buildings and having it kill the enemy? My goals in BC2 were always to just C4 entire buildings and blowing them up with people inside.

DanSolo2846d ago

Big maps are good, but on console I think the maps will not be much bigger than BF:BC2, and that is a good thing as otherwise there will be way too much time spent running around searching for people to kill!

The BF:BC2 maps were just the right size for the player count as they were big, but you could still be close to the action most of the time!
Bigger maps would be good... but needs the higher player count to go with them!

Awesome man! I love how in Battlefield, the map is huge and it really feels like you're in a war. No tight corridors where someone knives you from 15 feet away. lol

3GenGames2847d ago

Yep, and best of all in the Battlefield games there's little villages or even buildings in the middle of hills, valleys, rivers, etc. So it's not all one thing like in BFBC where it's buildings, a little land, and then more buildings too. It's a huge area of everything in between the buildings and such. You'll love it. And no, never.... :P

Yeah bro, my first Battlefield was 1942, and my mind was BLOWN when I realized it was like a real battle. Maps were so damn huge, and there was all sorts of shit going on at once. Every main Battlefield game has been like that, Battlefield 2, 2142, Vietnam...

Fez2846d ago

I've never played a battlefield game, how big are the maps? Bigger than KZ2? If the maps are so big does it not just lend itself to vehicle combat? I would hate to be walking around an online match for 30s or more without seeing anyone. Small maps are good for keeping the action fast and lively.

If you haven't played a battlefield game before, then you are definitely missing out. That doesn't mean go out and get BFBC 1 or 2. you need to play either 2142, 1942, vietnam, or battlefield 2 to get the true BATTLEFIELD experience. Go grab battlefield 2 complete collection for like 20 bucks if even that, and you will have a blast!

Can't wait for this game... ! :D

MidnytRain2847d ago

Wow, you get more points for knifing someone than destroying a vehicle. They must have seen fewer knife kills than they had expected in previous games.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

Maybe because is more difficult to knifing someone than destroying a vehicle.

MidnytRain2847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

Speaking of which, how difficult will it be to take out a jet?

@Ja555on below

That does sound bad. As if they needed to give people less reason to spot. If anything, it should have gone up.

Elwenil2847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

I "think" they are bringing back the stinger style missiles so it shouldn't be too hard. You scope in on the aircraft, get lock on and fire. They either take the hit, evade or there may be some sort of countermeasure. This is just speculation put together from BF2, the fact that there is a dedicated anti-air weapon and so far the lack of a BC2 style dart gun. At any rate, it should be a bit easier to take down aircraft than it is trying to shoot attack helos on Oasis with a dart. Note that the anti-air and anti-vehicle weapons are different and an engineer cannot carry both at the same time.

Ja555on2847d ago

I'm pretty sure the jets will get flares

Philoctetes2846d ago

I'm looking forward to this game, but 300 points for a knife kill is idiotic. This is just going to lead to more people running around knifing people instead of playing the game like normal. Hopefully they rethink this one before launch.

dontbhatin2846d ago

Its not as easy to get a knife kill on battlefield as you think. its not like COD with the auto aim knife jab.....

Ja555on2847d ago

All looks good apart from spotting which has not only decreased from 20 to 10 but everything else has increased, what were they thinking.

JellyJelly2847d ago

There's also a "Squad spot assist: 20 points". They might compliment each other and boost your points.

Ja555on2847d ago

Even if it does go up to 30 its still not enough

MidnytRain2847d ago (Edited 2847d ago )

I don't think it stacks like that. I think it'll be like BFBC2. If you revived or resupplied a squad mate, you'd only get the squad points, not both.
