News Comments > Battlefield V Trailer

There's something special about being apart if a big mp game launch, before the fixes and nerfs roll in. Being the first wave to "figure things out" is very satisfying.

Sp games on the other hand feel frustrating when buggy, as you usually only get one main playthru of the experience, I'd rather wait for it to be patched. Doing that with RDR2. Only issue is possible spoilers.

I think this is the result from their Gwent Online game, wwhich is still really popular, but no hearthstone, I'm sure their player numbers have dropped since launch.

People like me love the mini-game, but want a fleshed out experience that isn't tied to online competition.

hot damn. It's about time.

This is a no-brainer for me, they obviously have done their market research. Now if SquareEnix could just release the standalone card game that was in FFVIII then I'd be very happy.

Yea they didnt bother to make new maps for MP, they just updated and reskinned. Kind of odd, but gameplay is tight, shows everyones ping. I am over 150 fps and game looks great. Havent dealt with cheaters but only 5 hours in.

Only real complaint of those that are putting in time is dead silence is super OP in Blackout.

1) Dead Silence, I remember grinding that in Modern Warfare 2 with a friend, and then using it against another friend in 3v3 private TDMs, other guy would get SOOO MAD! Shit is OP, but just means you can't rely on audio, keep your head on a swivel soldier!

2) The MP maps are just reskins? LOL! Is this for real? Game launches with no SP, reskinned MP maps, and are hunting for season pass $129.99 DLC editions from me?! GODDAMN gamers have some double standards with studios. Don't even get me started with how CoD games had $60 loot crates that would give you BETTER WEAPONS THAN ARE AVAILABLE BY JUST GRINDING TO LVLCAP. ugh.... happy thoughts, happy thoughts...

*update, so the "playable" mode is blackout, gonna let the whole DL finish. The one thing I like about this and the upcoming royale for Battlefield is that they're shipping a royale mode WITH a "TDM style" other mode where you can actually just get in the shit, learn the guns etc. That's what always irked me about PUBG. Fuck going to a shooting range, I learn best with trial by fire.

I'm very curious about the cheater situation too. It should technically be using Blizzard's anticheat, which I would assume is pretty damn solid. I have not seen anything shady or cheater-like, yet.

It really could have used more polish overall, but I really like Blackout. Pretty much the only reason I got it.

Also I believe it was supposed to have 3 Zombies maps, with a 4th in the season pass.

I'm downloading it now, I'm expecting one zombie map at launch, just like every other COD Zombie game (except for OG blackops, which had that secret one you could unlock with the base game where you played old Sec Defs ^_^)

But this is taken from their deluxe edition:

Black Ops Pass: "Classified" Zombies experience, 4 additional Zombies experiences, 12 multiplayer maps, 4 exclusive Blackout characters

If I get 3 zombie maps with vanilla, I'll actually be happy. With a CoD game. Imagine that.

Downloading now.... OOOH it just passed the "playable" part, the suspense is killing me!

Played about 10 games of Blackout last night.
Seems like there were many improvements over the beta, but if I had to name them right now I couldn't... The game just feels great.
Might try out regular MP and Zombies tonight but I'm really here for the BR.

Going to get my fill before the baddies start giving up or getting better... because for now I'm still encountering handfuls of easy kills on clueless people
It won't last long.

edit: Also watching the top streamers stay up late last night to play was pretty great. Everyone was geeked and having fun.

Hey wait a minute, I wasn't streaming last night =p

I sucked the big donkey Activision dick and bought it. In honesty Treyarch is the only real COD studio, and I loved WaW and always had respect for them. I'm just going through the motions of expunging a decade+'s worth of hate on this series for never trying anything new.

I always said I'd get back in once they tried something different, and I'd be a hypocrite with the open world blackout upon us.

I still have some hate reserves scoured away for safekeeping for 2 months from now when I'm being "encouraged" to buy more DLC to stay in the game, but for now I'll bury the hatchet and enjoy the ride.

3 modes. One of them zombies. You get one map with zombies, the rest are locked behind paid dlc.

Can anyone correct this?

Fuuuuck that season pass Activision bullshit. Cause you know, especially on PC, you won't be able to find an mp game after the first month if you don't get on the dlc wagon.

Just to go against the grain here... M$ needs to acquire and properly run/fund more studios to compete with Sony. They have a shit track record, but its do or die for them. Sony has way more and way better studios under their wing.

Doesn't alpha mean that you can play the game from beginning to end, and all the systems are in place? ie. everything is there, it's just super buggy, unoptimized, and generally a mess... but everything's there.

Seems like that's the bulk of production time leading to alpha. But every studio seems to have their own definition of what Alpha means...?

Why the hell is Nier: Automata on that list? Did they finally fix the PC port? Last I checked it's been only second to that Arkham game as far as abysmal PC ports go... but at least they eventually fixed the Batman game...

lol @ walt

"I remember when they started talking about horseless carriages back in 1892, and every year it's vaporware! This Henry Ford guy thinks he's done good, but he's no good I tells ya!"

I think the analogy holds up, at least Ford being the first to actually get "RTRT" tech into the hands of millions of people, which is exactly what big green is doing. No, they're not lambos yet, but they're fucking automocars goddamnit. Even if there's only 3 roads (games) that anyone can use em on right now, they're still fucking automocars.

Still, lol @ morgan stanley being mad at performance in older games. I picture a boardroom full of suits running a LAN party and raging over not getting more FPS in CS 1.6.

Armor is everything. 40% dmg reduction for everything except headshots on T1 armor.

Also, the game crashes like a motherfucker. Everyone I've tried playing with lasts from 30 seconds to 5 minutes before the client crashes.

I can't believe they ran a public beta with this build, too bad cause it's kinda fun.

Shroud was ripping it up pretty hard, even with it capped @ 90 fps.

I was supposed to get a 24-hour headstart key from nvidia, i registered, gave my "nvidia" key on their website, said that i should get my 24-hour headstart beta key emailed to me, still not here, I'm not alone.

Also, the game seems to be crashing routinely for people. Whenever I see a 4 man squad, at least 2 of them crash before the round ends.

Other than that people are liking the fluid movement. That's the main reason why PUBG and DayZ and anything trying to emulate ARMA just feels so slow and clunky. The movement is dogshit in all those games, I have no idea why pro FPS players ever played em...

BFBC2 was on sale on Steam for $3 the other day, don't know if it's still going. Apparently, you have to link your Origin account and play through origin tho for MP. Kinda like a Steam-Ubi dealio. Loved that game tho, even though it's pretty dated. Great SP campaign.

Lots of people were having problems with that on Steam. Just take the cd-key steam gives you and activate it on your origin account, no "linking" has to be done. Worked just fine for me.

Ahh cool, good to know, yeah, I'm just parroting what I read on another forum. I ported my steam key to origin years ago, but sadly the Vietnam servers are never populated, and that's the only reason I'd wanna go back.

Uhhhh... What?

Also... Support can't build "wherever" they want.
That's his complaint, as support he wants to make the tactical decision of where to build. Being restricted sucks.

Oh whoops, i misread that.

re: the main point of the article though, what was the last Battlefield/Call of Duty etc. game where you didn't unlock "better" weapons the more you played? How is that relegated just to SWBF2?

The main crux of the argument seems dubious when put up against every AAA FPS game in the last 15 years, but more so why use SWBF2 as the example? There's only 3 unlockable guns for each class (4 classes) in SWBF2. Each with 3 attachments. That's a pretty paltry number of upgrades compared with other shooters, especially other DICE games. Have you seen how many guns there are in BF4? BF3? BF1? And yes, they generally get better the more of them you unlock, and the DLC guns were the most powerful of all lol.
