Battlefield 2042

Absolutely fantastic. I'm only playing All Out Warfare right now. Every map I've played on has been wildly more interesting and exciting to play than Orbital. 

 

I am only playing Breakthrough, though, as that is my preference.

 

Bad Company 2 in Portal is lovely. Not played the others.

I think so.

i thought turning it off would just stop me playing with pc players but I think it shuts out the Xbox one too?

 

i want to limit the amount of mouse players I’m playing against.

 

It's locked on Xbox to a system level. So if you want to turn it off you have to turn it off for every game you own. After that you will only get matched against other players who have turned it off.. So essentially you'll be playing against mostly bots.

Can’t believe how average the graphics are in this, playing on Series X.  It’s inferior to the last Battlefield that looked superb on my old One X. Whatever they have done to the Frostbite engine just has not worked. Terrible interface, menus. Just a mess.

So I’m starting to formulate an idea that this might be a game right now but is secretly the begining of a battlefield platform.

Stuff looks basic enough for you to say they built it from scratch, ready for the new gen.

I get the feeling in 5 years time pretty much every map from every battlefield will be available with all game modes that are currently missing.

 

Subscription platform perhaps.

 

Im enjoying it. I think the specialist stuff is kinda ok at the moment but I’ll reserve my judgement. To me they just work like master classes.

 

I managed to get on the scoreboard last night at the end of the match with 25 assists.

 

The sound effects coupled with the ps5 haptics makes for some great feeling guns. I was surprised there was no active trigger stuff.

 

I really want the acceleration on the Vehicles to be better though. They need a complete rewrite of the physics. It needs to look better to.

pop in on a ps5 on a game that looks just “good” is surprising. Plus the texture filtering seems much shorter compared to the beta.

I was shocked at how poor the city looked in the tutorial level.

It’s amazing how the buildings look like an original Xbox model. Then if you go close up on someone’s face all the detail is there plus half decent looking beards.

 Then you look at the terrain on El Alamein and looks really good.

Inconsistant.

I think I'm playing a different game - I'm really impressed with how this looks on Series X.

 

The city, with the sandstorm and then the lights coming on on the skyscrapers looks really good to me.

 

Maybe I'm just easily impressed :)

The buildings on the first level look hilariously bad, as does the sand. You have these decent character models walking around against that city, it's a very strange contrast. Also why are your forced to play a match against the worst AI ever. It felt like a punishment for downloading the trial.

It’s very strange. The base maps from what I’ve played feel more like a sandbox tool kit has been used to make them. Made by someone who feels bigger is better, with no consideration for the ebb and flow of what this series is about. 
 

I’ve only played a few matches but am astounded at the decisions made. The specialists are a stupid idea. You can’t tell whose who, what role they have and who to request stuff off. 
 

The Total number of weapons is paltry compared to previous games. But the customisation is very good.

 

Coming off pubg and even vanguard I’m really not inspired to play this. It’s not offering me any satisfaction.  
 

portal however is magnificent, and shows how decent bf games are made with classic maps. 
 

base game you can keep

On one hand I think the gameplay is some of the best Battlefield since BF3 but then there are the worst, clunkiest menus in every possible way, dragging it down. How bloody difficult can it be to let you easily pick a spawn point or to determine your loadout. The menus fight against you at every turn.

:blink:

All the new maps in this are garbage. Just acres of empty space with everything then clustered into the points miles apart. We switched to Portal and played a Bad Company 2 map and I was amazed how well I remembered it and where thing were, the difference in fun was night and day between the new content, can't see anyone getting nostalgia for the likes of Orbital in 11 years time.

I tried this and had absolutely no idea what to do to play well. Just ran towards the nearest objective and died from afar. Often a helicopter. It felt a lot like playing playground football as a kid, where 20 people all run for the ball and it's chaos. Any tips?

Play Rush on Portal mode. It's fast, focused and you get to use mortars and mines.😁

Otherwise, I'd try to learn the maps and sometimes just stick with a capture-point and hold it.

Edit: And play as Sundance. Why anyone would bother with anyone else is a total mystery to me.

It seems like some changes just randomly revert to default. I keep having to change outfits and loadouts.

I just unlocked MacKay too, havent tried him yet though. Does he have an awesome wingsuit and four different types of grenades?😜

He doesnt, but that grappling gun is fantastic....we were pinned down in a car park or something and I was zipping from cover to cover...not all about gaining height.

 

Sundance works on some maps...Mckay is a man for all seasons though.

 

Pity they couldnt combine the 2.

 

Edit....just found this vid on how good she can be on the right map.
