Battlefield Rumors

Following a tweet about clues about the next Battlefield game from an EA player survey, industry insider Tom Henderson, who is considered a credible source is back with more rumors about the next installment in the military shooter series. The features said to be mentioned in the survey are a Battle Pass, a Platoon/Clan System, a F2P element, evolving maps, and weapon blueprints. Now a new post called Tom Henderson's weekly GONE GOLD Newsletter #1 has more (thanks Charlie INTEL). Word is the new game is called simply Battlefield, it will be set in the near future, and a first gameplay-free trailer should arrive in May. Here's a bit more:
Per sources, I can confirm that the next Battlefield instalment will simply be called BATTLEFIELD and takes place around 10 years from now. The title is set in a modern/very near future, which gives the developers a chance to be able to implement weapons and vehicles that are currently in military development today.

The setting is very similar to how the Call of Duty franchise released Black Ops 2 in 2012, with the game being set in 2025 (so 10-15 years from its release date). So yes, expect military robots (Boston Dynamics?), drones, jets, helicopters, tanks and that sort of thing. The game is NOT a hub for all Battlefield titles, as the recent viral Reddit leak claims.

The game will feature a revolutionary campaign compared to other previous instalments. The campaign will focus on you and your specialist unit, where you’ll be able to chose which superpower you fight for. In BATTLEFIELD, there isn’t necessarily “Axis and Allies” as you will be able to chose your own path. Both the USA and Russia, who are the games only standing superpowers, will offer to “recruit” your specialist team and their skills throughout the campaign, which will be a valuable asset to both sides. It would also appear like this year’s campaign is a co-op experience.

Will the battles still sound like a bad hen's night?
* description paraphrased from Mack at WaB

Never realy got this. I love "Realism" in games but a few screaming anachronistic female soldiers isn't as rediculous as say, the absolute lack of civilian noncombatants and children getting murdered accidently on the battlefield, respawning and lack of hideous non-fatal woundings not to mention all the fancy guns that nobody actually had in these theaters, or never in such numbers for the few that were. I'm starting to judge people by which specific concessions to gameplay and accessibility they have issues with.

I'm pretty sure Mack said it in jest. I know I did. I mean it is just a game. Besides, the best screams are in AIX2.0 for Battlefield (back when Battlefield had mods). If you want to judge me because I find screams in games funny then fair enough I suppose.
I want a modern AIX2.0. Loved that mod. Sooo good.

Following the trend in recent Battlefield games I predict 2 v 2, and 4 v 4 player modes on maps that fit onto a penny, and a 250 player Battle Royale mode.

If they want anyone to buy it, yes, yes it will.

Although most of Bluesnews is probably aged out of being truly competitive online, I'll probably still check it out.

Funny, laying in bed awake last night, I was thinking about how I'll probably never play another online game, outside of maybe some phone games like Golf Blitz or Among Us. Nothing on console or PC. No time, no interest. I was kind of sad, but kind of indifferent, given that just 6 years ago, when I moved into this apartment, I bought 50ft of ethernet to ensure I could hardwire my PC to my router to have less lag. Even funnier, the PC is only about 5 feet from the router, but that 5 feet is across a floor. Instead I decided to be an adult and go around the circumference of the room. Didn't need 50 feet, probably only 30, but figured better safe than sorry (I'm probably overexaggerating both how much I needed and bought, but whatever, it was overkill.)
On the plus side, you're getting vastly faster download speeds than if you'd gone wireless.

Dammit, DICE, now I'm somewhat interested again. BF4+ or version 2.0 would be great, that was easily my favorite of the BF series.

And once again it won't have any anti-cheat on PC. BF4 is the cleanest since it has a community ban system (BF4DB), which is better than nothing.

Only 10 years from now, so likely no mechs

I guess maybe in 11-12 years we can finally get a proper return to the 2142 era?

Was hoping for 2142. I haven't even bothered getting the last few BF games bc I'm tired of the themes. Instead we get a near-future game, just like any of a dozen already released shooters.
