It's just crazy to see what is still relevantly new tech (2013?) look so old so fast. I mean, XSX and PS5 will look awful in a few years. It's just crazy, that same image would have blown people's minds 10 yrs ago.

 

I remember playing n64 swearing it was real lol.

I think series X and Ps5 are gonna hold up much better than xb1 and ps4. I mean Xbox one X will still probably look good for a couple more years.

I'll give it a go in the AM as well. never played 64 v 64 before. I have very low hopes, but if some of my boys play it who knows, maybe I'll enjoy. we played war zone for a bit and I just stopped being their friends for a while :tom:

I played a round. It was raining and had pretty epic atmosphere, the visuals are great :wow2: The lack of visibility actually made some of the vehicles harder to use. I was able to get a few kills and defend a point while in a littlebird but some dude hiding in a bush took me out with a rocket (my teammates made quick work of him tho)

 

I didn't really get a feel for too many of the mechanics. The weapons feel quite a bit different than in BFV (which is understandable as they're more modern). I was worried there wouldn't be much recoil based on some of the videos they released, but theres definitely a kick to them. Taking out enemies at range was a challenge but satisfying when you managed to pull it off. The PLUS system does seem like a handy addition, when I went down into the tunnels near the rocket I made sure to switch from the ACOG to a red dot sight for close range shootouts.

 

Theres some issues tho.

 

Some of the UI changes are kind of bizarre and not for the better. For example when you're reviving teammates theres actually no indicator showing the progress of the revive. The vehicle HUD also no longer shows any teammates in the vehicle in the vehicle graphic. You have to look at the side of the screen which is weird. 

 

The kill and score feeds are also on the side of the screen for some reason. Its more satisfying to just place that in the middle (towards the bottom) where they're always been. I couldn't tell I was capturing points because I would miss the score indicators on the right.

 

And the sound design while great overall does have some mixing issues. For example there were times where a teammate would be shooting at an enemy next to you but some background noise would block that out and you wouldn't hear any of the gunshots. The beta build is confirmed to be a few months old so hopefully this stuff will be ironed out for launch.

 

Theres also no text chat on PC which is a strange omission. Given that theres also no VOIP yet (confirmed to be coming at launch) there is currently no real way to communicate with your teammates, outside of pinging enemies/locations on the map.

 

I still need to play around with more of the vehicles and the specialist/specialist abilities but the core gameplay is good 'ol Battlefield so far.

I want to see the tornado in action but apparently the spawn rate for it is very low. Like theres only a 1 in 20 chance of it appearing. Probably just a beta thing so it doesn't become too repetitive or change the map flow too much.

You can trigger the rocket event while the tornado is making its way across the map. Pure chaos :D   
 

 

 


totally thought it was gonna cause the rocket to crash

I watched a video where people flew in- and out the tornado and it's the dumbest shit ever. It pushes you away, then you can use your parachute and go back in and repeat. :mj: 

 

 

Other objects get drawn in too though which is pretty cool.

Just tried it the 128 player mode.

It´s something that I´ve already played before. Got me some BF4 vibes which is good. 

However this is a game that you will enjoy it immensely with a squad of people that you know.

Graphics are good but it needs something more like weather effects.

Sound effects could be improved. I think I wasn´t playing in war tapes mode.

Graphics range from heavily impressive to downright ugly/jaggy in series X. The foliage looks especially well done and blows me away how cry’s is/far cry did back in the day. 
 

however there are mannnnny graphical glitches rn. Otherwise it seems a bit easier than previous BFs, not a bad thing
