    No, that is not the reason it looked better. The reason it looked better is that with SW:BF and bf1, they used photogrammetry scannings of real locations and objects, which made it look ultra realistic. For whatever reason, they dropped doing that going forward - probably due to cost.

    The main DICE developers left and started their own studio, what is at the studio now and worked on 2042 is..... well not the same DICE.

    That is why the game runs like crap compared to previous battlefield games, and is really badly optimized... but not the reason it doesn't look as good as bf1 :)

    Doubling the player count was always going to mean sacrificing certain visual features.

    I wouldn’t say 2042 looks bad, just less geometrically dense.

    That's actually not the reason it runs so bad - it's less cpu heavy in 64 and 32 player modes, but just as gpu intensive. It's just very badly optimized / coded for what it is. The primary issue i have with the game visually, is that the new maps somehow comes across with this cartooney look / feel to them, where as previous battlefield games had a very realistic look. The exception is the remastered maps, especially the bf3 maps - they look fantastic. However, they still run like crap, which is 100% down to the new guys doing the coding behind the scenes not being adept at using the frostbite engine.

    Same goes for cpu usage - previous battlefield games would fully use 8 cores, where as this game uses a fair amount of cores, but only really hammers 2 threads, which results in the game with 64 players getting about half the fps bf5 did with 64 players, and even less than bf1.

    I'd be tempted to get the game on a heavy sale but so far only PS4 versions were sold at like 50% off.
    My sole interest lies in playing it in portal mode for BC2/BF3 experiences but i heard it's severly limited so i don't know whether it's worth it at 50% off or not even that.

    Lol the changes to weapon damage better not be correct - the auto shotgun DELETES people at sub 10 meters, but the mp9 (which has sub 10 meters as it's very narrow niche) now needs 5 bullets to kill below 10 meters? Beyond retarded. And they are nerfing the m5 close combat rounds to need 6 bullets to kill below 10 meters ?! Gonna give it a slower kill time than all the other assault rifles, even the scar... retarded dmg "balancing" as always from dice... reminds me of bf5...

    The biggest fix is for the console headshot bug.

    Erm, ok? I guess you don't understand what it is then. Basically headshot bug or something like that when a kill is confirmed, even if it's not.

    It affects PC too, but not as much.

    ZzZzZzZz...

    Them messing with weapon balance is going to have a way bigger effect, and i dont get why they do it AGAIN...

    They get burned everytime by the community when they increase the ttk, just because a few n00bs cry about being killed too fast...

    Some weapons are just plain useless. The M44 for example can't hit anything less than 1 meter away. Where the projectile goes is anyone's guess.

    Portal's a failure atm. It only serves to fragment the player base further at this point. They should've just made a decent BF and perhaps just reused the old maps (they're better than the BF2042 maps anyways).

    Out of sheer curiosity - is any of portal content tied to season pass?

    Don't even know at this point, I haven't played in over a month.

    Lol, since all other close range weapons except for the auto shotgun and bsv have been nerfed now, the auto shotgun (which was already stupid OP) is even more OP.

    I really dont get dice and their "balancing"...
