Looks interesting. I wonder if this is meant to be a prequel to BF2142 (and an eventual remake of that game). In any case, I don't think I'll be getting this at release as a pre-order - I've felt like a DICE betatester ever since BF3. Every single release is bugville.
The main downside (which may not be a downside to everyone else) obviously being how all these games are progession based with unlocks, so I will likely feel overwhelmed. The vehicle upgrade path, for example, in BFV felt incredibly gated and annoying - most of which had upgrades (like on tanks) that were clearly better than everything else. I never go to use the Stuka with anti-tank cannons because I could never level that particular one up.
MP games are now in this Era of waving bananas on a stick to take advantage of our monkey brains.
