Can't wait for the open beta to test it out and see how my rig handles it at various settings.

I don't recall BF1 or 5 having many crashes or major bugs at launch. Hopefully they nail it with 2042 considering the hype and player load it looks like they're going to see (working servers, end of round server reporting etc.. BF5 still has issues with that now "no end of game report" bug).

Wondering where slick is. His much explained desire for this game means he should have automatically been in here posting about the game. And bashing anybody hating on it.

I will buy/play it a year or two after release when its lowered price and bug fixed enough.

Dammit, I am getting AMPED up for this, like a sucker for the 6th time.

I would just be mindful of pre-ordering FOMO which they are good at from a marketing perspective. I remember BF3,4,5 being very rough at launch - they pulled a gotcha on me 3 times, so at least for me, I intend to wait a bit to buy after launch to assess how stable the game is.

Ah yes, the pre-order curse. Yeah, my goal is to avoid pre-ordering pretty much anything these days, and I'm sure BF2042 is going to be rough, as you say, for months. That said, it's not like DICE/EA is going to abandon the game or something, it'll get patched up.

Looks like the maps are nice and huge, hopefully this leads to more strategic battles and better use of vehicular combat. I don't like the color palette, but maybe that's just the one map they are showing off.

I hope that DICE makes the 128 player multiplayer work. Haven't played a massive multiplayer shooter since Wolfenstein Enemy Territory. If DICE makes it happen, I'll definitely play it for sure.


I dont remember how big ET was, was it 64 vs 64? I loved the game though, it's in my top 3 all time MP FPS.
Planetside 2 had epic battles that somehow worked without lag -eventually- so there's that.

It looks like a proper Battlefield game, nice.

Didn't enjoy BF1 or BFV much. Not a fan of old times wars themes unless there's a twist like with Wolfenstein's occult and crazy tech. I would have even liked some more futuristic stuff, but the scale of this looks really nice, and those weather effects are stunning, and so is the destruction which I loved in Bad Company 2 and BFV.

I'm saddened because I know I won't be able to grapple the rocket as it launches.

Or maybe it'll make everyone do it for an epic flight-to-space gunfight.

Tank drops could be the greatest thing ever, or lead to the most infuriating tank theft by teammates and enemies ever, I am undecided.
