After BF5 being so uninteresting and COD Cold War being so good, I thought I was done with BF.
But after that trailer, yeah I'm thinking I back

I'm starting to think that Battle Royale will be introduced just as another game mode in Battlefield 2042, and you'll be able to play BR on all 7 new maps. The size of them for 128 players seems around Blackout, this could be huge if my hunch is right. Or I could be completely wrong.

The trailer has a huge focus on infantry and air combat, but little on vehicles overall. So if that's any indication, looks like they aren't going back to the heavy vehicle combat and I'm not as interested. Hope that my assessment is wrong or the trailer is strictly fluff.

Kind of over trailers in general because they’re always fluffed up and not at all representative of what we get when we actually play the game. Surprised a lot of people still see these kinds of marketing promotions as anything other than huge biased ads.

Nobody cares about how the shit looks like in the trailer, as people already know what its going to look like its battlefield, it will look good. The most important part was there message of what they are going for, and thats what the trailer did extremely well.

BF5 was drowned in fortnite/borderland SJW garbage nobody wanted in there battlefield game. Shitting on there playerbase etc. That's why it failed.

But even then the game is just awful as a battlefield game, i did some matches the other day and uninstalled it directly as i didn't had access towards a rocket launcher to counter a tank that was camping our base. Its just fucking awful on every way and straight up doesn't feel like a battlefield game at all.

I hope they move back to BF4 gameplay. and that's what the trailer showcased.

What about the destruction system? Honestly, I expected it to be vast improved in the next gen, but so far there's been no word about it from DICE.

Jaguar cores from last gen holds it back since frostbite is very cpu heavy.

Sorry but you have to hope for next game in the series.

Got a question about different editions of BF2042. I want to buy the Golden Edition, The Battlefield 2042 Gold Edition also includes the following items:
  • Year 1 Pass: 4 New Specialists (1 per Season)
  • 4 Battle Passes (1 per Season)
  • 3 Epic Skin Bundles (Blistered, Tempest, and Cold Blood)
  • Cross-Gen Bundle
But what are the 4 battle passes? And does early access also apply to physical copies? As far as I can see you don't get new maps if you buy this edition. Right?

I equally dislike Metro and Locker. Just terrible, boring, straight forward maps. Metro was ok for Rush in 3, but just awful for Conquest especially at higher player counts.

yeah, I guess stage hazards can be turned off if you rent a server. That tweet is disheartening, the game isn't even out yet and people call one of its new features "repetitive" and game ruining.

I'll be playing on Series X. I'm open to play against PS5 players but I don't want to play against PC players for obvious reasons. So I'd like to opt out of playing PC only. I hope that's an option.
Supposedly it is. But ideally not like cod where it will only match you to other people who opt out. Opt in is default though.

Aaaaand that is bad news. Opt in is default.
I DO NOT want to play PC players. Even if there was perfect anticheat (it's DICE, there won't be any functioning anticheat lol) PC players have higher framerates, mouse and keyboard, advanced video settings like low texture- and shadow quality.
Example: Console player is hiding in a dark corner or tall grass, PC players with shit quality, oh hello there.

Crossplay between PS5/XSX/XSS only, thanks. But that won't happen and 90% of the playerbase won't bother with the settings anyway because casuals, so opt out players will be playing bots only.

Hype is gone.

Honestly this was my first thought as well with default being on how many people will actually know to turn it off?

This seems to drastically reduce the player pool for those who do turn it off.

No Strike at Karkand.
No buy.

Seeing no BF2 love from those leaks.
The fact theres any BF1 maps on that maplist tweet above is a joke. BF1 has exactly zero memorable maps - I cant name a single one.

Im wondering if the game will have input matchmaking [Controller only. Keyboard only.]

Hype is gone because the devs didn't treat you like a baby and switch off an option for you? Why not just...do it yourself? How much effort could it really take.

Pretty sure his point (mine anyhow) is having in on by default is going to super limit the player pool to those of us who do not want cross play with PC since its default is on how many people are even going to know it exists?

And it gets worse, bots are NOT optional.

SKIP!
Who cares if bots are optional or not? There's literally no downside to them being there until the server fills up or new plays replace others who left.

The is Opt Out by default is better as most players won't even change the setting and it will mean players like me who will opt out will have far less people to play with by default.

Opt Out by default is better overall and allows those who want to play with PC players the option.

Indeed. In fact, CoD did the same bullshit. You disable crossplay on menu options and even with this options turned OFF they still put you against people over others plataforms.
Will be probably happen on this new Battlefield taking into consideration the way devs are lazy to fix the matchmaking problem.

I care. In fact, paying a online service like Playstation Plus or Gold for fightning against BOTs because devs can't figure out a way to fix is bs.

Man... is even fun getting your rank up after beat some bots? lmao.

The bots are only there to fill the spots temporarily. The only alternative is for teams to be missing players and even more unbalanced. You'd at least have something to shoot at or help your team while more players join.

If the match is full you won't see them.

Was told this in many games with bot. They don't adress this problem at all. As soon as the game get lower install base and people move on, what you will is a bunch of bots.
I played a loads of Gears of War 3 from Xbox 360, this is totally bullshit from the start.

If they really care about 'unbalanced' they should adress the crossplay first. Bots don't solve shit, is just for impacient people that can't wait the matchmaking to fullfil. In fact, enable offline play if they really want people to fight against BOTs.

Having bots for a game with lower player count later on is a GOOD thing.

Battlefield doesn't use lobbies for people to have to wait unless the server is like 4 people and in that case it would be much better off playing against bots than waiting. Most of the time the servers will stay full and when the match ends bots will be placed there until it fills back up. The bots won't be there the whole match unless no one else joins the match. The start of the match could be 10 bots on each side and a few minutes later the spots would have been filled.

Wreckfest literally does this exact thing in the lobby before a race or event and it works perfectly. 2042 is taking this one step further with it happening during an ongoing game match.

Much of the Battlefield community has been wanting bots back for years.

Wtf is going on? This is sounding like sporadic and pointless "outrage" lmao.

Of course cross play and cross platform is defaulted, it's not an easy implementation. Plus it makes the pools much larger, so, why wouldn't they default it?

Also, bots taking up empty slots has been a thing for quite awhile. The thing is, if 2042 is a success then the games will be populated enough so bots won't be necessary. I could see a norm where maybe 1-5 may appear occasionally. But I can't imagine it'd be more than that unless the game is just not good.

All of the above makes even more sense with this being a multiplayer-only title like the original BF games.

Speak for yourself. I not pay online for fight against bot. Never. Maybe on PC because online multiplayer is free there.

You're not taking things in consideration. Played a loads of BF, they don't do justice in the matchmaking.

Much of the Battlefield community has been wanting bots back for years.

You're pretty much speak for yourself again. I don't recall the BF community asking this as their priority feature. Is like saying BF players don't care about Singleplayer, don't care about the quantity of weapons the game will get day one.

Top priority will be always better ways of remove cheaters, but when you can't do that you end up listening the low priority features asked from the 'community'. Never was against crossplay until my games start fill with loads of cheaters. Thats why I'll turn off day one.

Learn to read, baby. 95% of players won't turn it off, so if I turn it off I can play with the other 5% likeminded people and bots. Great.
