If that is an actual screenshot there was a map in Battfield Hardline that was similar just a swamp.

So... can you get on the rocket before it lifts off and ride it into space?

This is BATTLEFIELD, you know people are gonna try it ;)
Meh if the servers don't return to how they were in BF4 and prior I will skip it just like BF1 and BFV. I put over 1300 hours in BF3 and BF4 and I have less than the 10 hour trial in both BF1 and BFV. Battlefield is why I would build a new computer and why my computer is back from when I built it for BF4. Now of course I probably couldn't get the parts if I wanted to build one.

Since the game is supposed to be cross platform, my guess servers will be the same as BF1 and BFV. Just like the last two, they will say news on server rentals is coming, but won't be out for 6 months or so. When it finally comes it will be underwhelming again and missing the majority of features.

I worry about that to. If anything, do servers right at release. Cross platform later when the player base dies. For strong PC games like BF4 people play them for many years.

I'd prefer this too but it depends how good the anti cheat is. I see cheaters often in warzone and its cross platform. Having PC only servers would be a nightmare. If I was a console player I'd be pissed I'd have to play with PC players.

Why do you need to preorder a digital copy?

It's Battlefield if you even put game on your wishlist I have a pretty good idea what is going to be good from my 46 years as a gamer.
Plus it's a modern Battlefield this time around. I don't jump on everything sometimes I'm just looking for a new game on my day off because everything else is months old. i would like to be a game developer or in a studio but I lack any formal education to make games I have guys on my Steams friends list that make assets all day but I just consider that a waste of time because they show me the results and I try not to laugh =)

You're 46? I thought you were like 27 or something.

I reckon it'll be the usual practice of cinematic trailer first, and then the gameplay trailer everyone wants to see following a month later. No likey.

OTOH, if we're potentially playing an open beta as soon as next month, then all is forgiven. Will be good to be back in the BF3/BF4 universe, if only briefly before the longer wait until October/November.

Battlefield is my favorite gaming franchise. My biggest concern with launching a Battlefield game in this day and age is the fact there will almost certainly be some sort of leveling-up, progression, skin system, etc. etc. to pander to the new era of gamers. People can't play multiplayer games these days without getting a new flashy skin or watching a progression meter go up at the end of every map.

Not sure how they'll manage all that, but it seems like a tough situation to be in. Not sure I want to see people running around the map in a glowing purple ultra-rare skin.

Plus, there will almost certainly be some sort of battle royal eventually. Which to me means free, and free means other methods of revenue. And other methods of revenue mean flashy skins, weapon "charms", etc...

I like the progression system. I need more to play for than just wins and K/D ratio. I know not everyone shares that opinion, but the good thing about Battlefield is for the most part it caters to both audiences.

The series died for me with BF3. Too much focus on unlocks, especially ones that gave real gameplay advantages, so people who had way too much time to play had the advantage. Ain't got time for that shit.

I reinstalled BF4 yesterday. they put in a bf6 glitchy animation. I'm really not wild about bf4. the weapons feel more unique and have weight to them in BF1 and 5 to me. the gameplay is so chaotic I prefer what they did in the two last games more. I'm curious what route they go with the new one.

The series died for me with BF6. Because they won't let me play it yet (even though I want to). Also, Ospreys -- is it a helicopter, or is it a plane? Sorry, it can't be both at the same time. Ridiculous.

BTW, the idea that unlocks were unfair and gave advantages are kind of a cop out. Because in both BF3 and BF4, the starter class weapons were very strong; and in vehicles and aircraft, the starter main gun was typically the bread&butter that you stuck with even after unlocking and evaluating everything else.

See if EA Dice and their 4 other studios delivers today. They better show gameplay or else!
