No. Not even levelution in BF4 was that static. There will be dynamic/random elements to all of the weather events.

So yeah it’s multiplayer only with 7 maps at launch and no BR as of now. I’m not gonna lie even if the gameplay is great that’s going to be a tough sell for a lot of people especially at $70

Will wait for Premium for $70 unless it comes to Gamepass before.

$70 is a lot of money for a game with no sp and even then only a few of them justify them.

They should have dynamic storms where it appears in different spots and is a random event. I’m sure this tornado happens in the same spot at the same time on the same map

every time?

Alongside the expected new weapons, vehicles, and equipment, the game also introduces Specialists, named characters inspired by the traditional Battlefield classes but with added abilities, with 10 coming at launch.

 

Sounds like they're going the R6 Siege route. Im not sure how I feel about this.

So it’s 70$ for a MP only game with 7 maps and will feature a paid battlepass. 
 

they wylin, this shit has Gamepass all over it.. otherwise massive flop, probably a flop either way tbh. 

 

Im coming around on the maps based on what i've heard. Their size changes depending on the game mode, and it seems that there are multiple capture zones within an actual capture point so they must be pretty huge overall. Then theres the destruction, interactive elements, leveloution/weather events, etc. Its not really fair to look at the number of maps and then compare it to the number of maps that CoD has for example.

I’m not even comparing map numbers, just saying it’s $70 for MP only with a battlepass that you have to pay for.

Man game journalists nowadays are cringeworthy. DICE straight up says the themes are purely for gameplay purposes and not social/political commentary and this guy from IGN starts going on a virtue signaling rant about climate change

 

Quote

Berlin: "It is definitely purely a multiplayer game for us. The reason we decided to go down this route is so we could create a narrative with this world that we could create through the eyes of the No-Pats. [The in-universe term for the refugee warriors.] We wanted to get more spectacle in there, and more massive events happening. The setting fits that perfectly. It fits that scale, and it gives us reasons to go all over the world. [...] It's for gameplay reasons across the board."

 

I doubt Berlin truly believes this answer. He coexists on the earth with the rest of us, and the team at DICE is clearly familiar with the prognostic source material they're drawing from. There is nothing that outlandish about the nightmare Battlefield 2042 intends to present, and it's paradoxical to claim a work of fiction where resources are scarce and the vulnerable are recruited into an interminable conflict between superpowers isn't political.


But unfortunately, there is still a fear of admitting the obvious within the triple-A gaming strata. We just went through a similar newscycle with Far Cry 6, after Ubisoft initially asserted its narrative where a guerilla fighter is attempting to usurp a fascist dictator in an extremely Cold War-looking Carribean island, was also 'not political' (before eventually saying it was, just that it wasn't about Cuba). The publishers don't want you to believe your eyes.

It seems likely that EA believes by avoiding the P-word, they are removing themselves from greater levels of critical and customer scrutiny. But consider what the company is inferring when it declares ideological inertness. If Battlefield 2042 was truly apolitical, that means DICE was exclusively inspired by the graphical possibilities of our coming apocalypse, and that the collateral human misery, failed states, and biospheric catastrophe seemed solely like incredible venues for firefights and nothing more. That is grim as hell!

 

By filtering climate armageddon solely through, in Berlin's words, "gameplay reasons," DICE has ironically one of the more trenchant political commentaries the crisis has entertained. We all know what's coming, but we dare not verbalize those who are responsible. I hope EA, and the rest of the games industry, changes its tone before it's too late.

So the xbox store listing mentions 2-4 player co-op which neither the leaks or press releases touched on

 

And apparently all of DICE LA is working on a secret unannounced mode for the game that was referred to as a 'love letter' to fans

 

Its kind of a long shot, but could it be the long awaited dinosaur mode that they've been teasing since BF3?

I don't know, not sold. MP Only and WTF is the tornado shit in a BF game. 

 

Day 1 GP is the only way I'd try it. 

It's so dumb :D 

 

And let's not forget ejecting out of a jet to shoot another jet with a rocket launcher and then catching the jet in free fall, hopping back in, and firing up the engine and taking off :tom: 

 

smh
