- Battlefield 2042 Gameplay | First Look At Renewal, Breakaway and Discarded Maps
Theres not a lot of environment destruction, it was one of the biggest complains that people had with the beta, but, well, the video is like 20 secondsID: hif5nvd
I would have have figured if it was a feature they would have already showcased it.ID: hifm4k2
At about 54 seconds you see a whole small building/shack get blown to bits
I really think Orbital (the beta map) was a terrible showcase for destruction based on how the map is laid out and the buildings it featured
I was hoping this was going to be the multiplayer game that would suck me in but after the Beta I’m not that impressed.ID: hie6qo2
I was surprised at how underwhelmed I was by the beta. I really thought this was going to be the new BF installment that got me back into the series.ID: hieco9m
The lack of destruction really bummed me out. It’s no longer interactive but feels very scripted. Also the fact that everyone looked the exact same was such a ridiculously bad decision. But the movement also just plain sucked.. so much removed from BFV. I will pass on this game unless major changes occur which is too bad. I really enjoyed the last couple BF games.ID: hie76uf
Same. Of course I’m going to pay attention as the game evolves and I hope the best no doubt, but I won’t be going in day 1.ID: hifua6q
The one time I can say it was worth buying a Series X in addition to my PS5. Halo Infinite is the only multiplayer shooter that looks to be any good launching this year.ID: hie86rx
I’m so pumped after the beta. Haven’t had that much fun with a multiplayer game in a long time. Can’t wait for release! Me and my friends are gonna be having a blast squadding upID: hie8fdd
That is awesome! I’m glad you enjoyed it and I hope you and your friends have some outstanding times/memories made in game.
Great to hear!ID: hiefakn
I'm so deflated after the beta. Have had more fun with other multiplayer games. Can wait until the game gets a significant price reduction. Me and my friends are gonna continue playing the games we have been playingID: hied5w7
I wanted to like it too, feel like Hell Let Loose does nearly everything better though and that didn't cost me 80 euros.ID: hif3xkq
Hell Let Loose
I was looking forward to this battlefield for years. Beta was worse than I could've possibly imagined. Got Hell Let Loose for free. Realized this is what battlefield should've always been.ID: hifm91n
Yeah, no.ID: hifwodn
only fun with a squad of 6 all on comms & strategising. I use a discord channel to group up, and if I don’t have a full squad I don’t play.ID: hif5vqm
It’s so sad. I didn’t like the vanguard beta and really thought this would be my new bf4 level obsession. What’s with devs and not making sequels that are just the older game but better? Give me bf4 with new weapons, graphics, and improved destruction and I’m good for a good year or two.ID: hif61jm
Just give me Blackout 2 and I’m set.
Getting kills in this game feels so unsatisfying.ID: hifs4eu
Doubly so when they’re a brain dead AI.
After the beta preordered the gold edition.
It was way more fun than bf5 was at release and way more fun than bf4.
It won't be bf1, but it was still great. And they addressed the biggest issue with the ui already being much better in the recent videos.
That’s fine, but it just isn’t how the Beta played. No one played the objective and camped, so it was a huge spaced out map with people hiding in bushes waiting for someone to win the match for their team.
Hopefully the Rush alternative is prominent in it.ID: hie36ko
Breakthrough is usually more action packed with more people playing the objective. Rush also like you said but I’m not sure if we’re getting that at launch, if at all.ID: hie3c2r
Yeah that’s why I said alternative. Rush was my favourite, but I know they’ve changed it somewhat.
I don’t need ‘action packed’ as such, just something where people play the objective.ID: hifuxvf
Yea its not really a negative thing to be “camping” in Battlefield. It isnt a fast paced shooter and you actually use a sniper properly in that game.ID: hifv98y
I played most of the prior games, put hundreds of hours in.
It is a symptom of poor map design and minimal rewards for playing as a team. I ventured towards sniping too as it was the most fun to be had, with a pretty poor experience otherwise.
We need proper classes back imo, and maps designed with interesting dynamic areas.
I’ll get at launch and see what’s changed. I’m just worried it’s lost the magic.ID: hifh3ke
No one played objective? Really what about all those kids on rooftop objective? What were they doing? Not playing objective by being on objecetive?ID: hifs8lu
Yo dawg. I heard you like objectives…
Rather strange, a lot of the footage is made up between old and new footage. You can tell with the kill feed differences.
It seems whomever has the final say for these promotional videos, is: so much pressured to show an effort to bring crowd from other fps, and/or, has no sense of what Battlefield pace players look for.
I hope this is all a map-type kind of thing, and everyone can have what they like.
Shaping up to be a disappointing game.
The class system is poo-poo. Please revert that back please.
These maps are dull and have no character.ID: hif9j9x
Agreed...they were thinking too macro "ice" vs. "desert" when really what would get me excited is interesting locations on a more intimate scale - even if they were all from the same geographic region
Well, time to vote with the wallet, folks.
Can’t wait to get my hands on this again! I’ve been bored with the rest of my games since the beta ended.
He’ll Let Loose is awesome. Try it, be patient and learn how wonderful it is.
Discarded looks great, I feel that I'll play only on the platform on the Antartica map, it seems too big for meID: hiecxd0
Yeah I really think they missed the mark on these level designs. Giant empty expanses or terrain that’s hard to traverse in a vehicle ain’t it.ID: hiepmnb
That’s where breakthrough comes in.
These maps all look that same as the other map - some big tower in the middle and low lying flat lands around it. They look like giant messes, with no flow. The beta map was chaotic and it was impossible to figure out how to be strategic. People stopped trying to capture things and doing Call of Duty meatspawn thing where most players on both teams just run to the same spot and keep dying.
I was hopeful this trailer would give me something to be excited about, but I just keep thinking about how much better at this Hell Let Loose is right now.
And I am already tired of the grind that they have planned, and not at all interested in that new class system with their Operators. Let me make my own, head to toe, if you're going to go that route. I don't want to be an old lady just for a bonus special. That's real dumb, and only about them being able to sell cosmetics.
Not really any new guns in this that haven't been shown or mined. Making me nervous about the amount thatll be in the main game.
If Dice uses portal weapons as "DLC" for the main game im going to be so disappointed
I don't see why they'd be showing off the maps they threw away?
Is the design philosophy of each map huge open empty spaces with a high building or a few buildings in a couple of places only?
There's an oil rig on the snow map, a ship or something in the India map, both similar in design to orbital. Not necessarily a good or bad thing but I hope they don't play like orbital because orbital plays like ass.
The snow map has some interesting verticality, but still very open.ID: hifgk0v
There's only 2 maps smaller than Orbital
Buggy piece of shit
