    2142 wasn't the best BF game ever released but i did have some fun playing it with friends. Bad game but still some fun to be had. I can't say the same for BF1 or BF5. I played them both for a total of about 100 hours and maybe it's just me but the fun factor was missing from both those titles.

    Hopefully this new BF game will at least be a bit of fun but i won't hold my breath for it. I feel the last two games were just money grabs from EA. If i remember correctly i paid over £200 on those two games and regretted it later very much. Waste of money and now if i get this new game then i'll have spent over £300 on just the last 3 BF games alone.

    Preorder on Origin only shows the base game for £50 then of course there's both the Gold version at £80 and then finally the Ultimate Edition which will cost £100+ but right now i don't see other versions on Origin only the base game so far for preorder.

    AND btw most of BF1942 success came later thanks to the Modding community. 1942 was good but Desert Combat Final(mod) was way better. So much so that Dice hired the modders to help build BF2.

    Well, yes. It does and they certainly can. Let's just see what EA have developed here, in 3 years and with 3 studios working on different aspects of the title, we might actually have some money spent on it that aren't just bad decisions like BF5.
    Yes, 20 years in the future is modern too. It's not like in 20 years we'll go from having what we have now to flying cars, hovering air craft carriersbases and laser weapons. Of course, BF4 had a rail gun, a hover tank and mechs. But who knows when BF4 was really set. So much put in to a number for time... I'd say we're less likely to see any of those items, but I'd also really like them, because silly things is what BF has always been doing.
    It's the same as all the other passes. The game will reportedly release its maps for free, the year pass is to get cosmetics and hero characters.

    But apparently in 20 years we got actual robot dogs running across the battlefield with machineguns on their back... dont want that crap. If anything i would rather have a game set 20 years ago, than 20 years into the future - have a game about the Afghanistan war.

    That's a part of the reason why i didnt like bf4 as much as bf3.

    Wait...you can pay money to get a new specialist? That doesn't sound good.

    Get the hype vids rolling, release the private beta, leak some footage, release the public beta, sponsored youtubers spamming vids 24/7, game is released (after massive hype trailer).

    Essentially EA salivates at what Fortnite is doing....

    The problem here is that Battlefield is a video game people pay for with money.

    I guess the correct way to refer to it would be GAAS... games as a service.

    Is it confirmed that there will be no singleplayer story?

    With current robots, seeing that in 20 years isn't very far fetched. BF4 still had a portable railgun and a flying drone minigun thing. None of which are available today.

    Well, they're already doing it with every other game, and they have Apex Legends raking in money. Games like this one are ripe for further monetisation, even if we don't want it. That's what the money-men want. The best we can hope for is a version where we don't suffer too much.
    Yes. An excellent decision.

    Maybe not, which is why i dont want it to be set 20 years into the future. And as i said, i wasnt a fan of bf4 either - prefered bf3 for the very same reason.

    I agree with no single player being the right decision though.

    To be completely honest I had forgotten that game even existed but I guess in this situation it is also a good comparison of something EA wants to turn Battlefield into.

    Well it's somewhat of a better business model than what they tried with BF5 or with Battlefront 2, or with any of their damn sports games where the poor saps are nickle and dimed for everything they own.

    This is what's happening now.





    This is what was happening 11 years ago.



    In 21 years what do you think will be real?

    *edit*

    This one is not real... it's "cgi"... but it gives you an idea as to a possibility as to where military might be going.

    So what you are saying is, the most important weapon in the future will be a magnetic one?

    As an aside, I cannot be the only one sat in the cinema watching Matrix Revolutions thinking "Why didn't they just put a massive magnet at the gates of Zion to stop all these pesky robots?"

    Microwave weapons or viruses.

    I see what you are saying though, that's pretty funny.
