- Battlefield 2042 PS5 Tech Test Cancelled; Cites “Critical Issue Identified”
This is good news and shouldn’t be worrying. It’s getting solved now 2 months before launch instead of launch day.ID: h8wj539
Tbh a delay is better than having a broken releaseID: h8xp533
Finally, people are learning this. Unfortunately we needed Cyberpunk to drive the envelope home but…ID: h8wh119
Battlefield 4 legit shipped broken so this is a great pointID: h8winu4
If you play BF games at launch, you should be worry lol. They are pretty ass at launchID: h8wrc8u
There were all fine except BF4
This is good news. Nobody want the 6 month mess that was bf4 at releaseID: h8uu246
Still, this doesn't mean we're not going to get another 6 month mess. Quite the contrary, it proves they're not able to stick to the plan/schedule.ID: h8uvbl7
Better catching this now though than at releaseID: h8x1k2x
The technical test does its job and finds a critical error, and that's a bad thing somehow? Would you prefer if the technical test was at launch like CoD does?ID: h8uwco6
If you remove bf4 there hasn't been a truly bad battlefield launch in over a decade
Bf4 is the odd one out. Not any of the other titles.ID: h8wrwt9
I’d rather a game be virtually flawless than stick to a schedule. Plus developers don’t have to work like slavesID: h8v3d6r
Not really when it's just one platform, BF4 was bad all across the board. This spells out issues with the devs working on the PS5 API/SDK, meaning performance may vary from other consoles due to issues in optimization. The Xbox and PC both use DirectX 12 API meaning optimization is potentially easier due to similarities, where as Sony uses their own custom API for the PS5.ID: h8vgu8f
not potentially easier, its 100% easier for devs used to working on PC games since it is literally identical version instead of learning a new API.
Of course though I'm sure the PS5's API probably has some benefits to it that come with its custom nature, but yeah DX12 is 100% gonna be easier for most developers to work with.ID: h8wpdrc
This is a massive leap to a conclusion with no evidence; chill outID: h8vx4dr
There’s is definitely a problem with the PS5. There’s a few games that have had issues latelyID: h8wx99k
It was closer to a year on PC. It did eventually become an amazing game though.ID: h8vx0pi
I mean, that leaked preview didn’t look good either
That’s good news? The soonest they find it - the better
Abandoned bit them?
I used to say, Don't go there.
People complaining must have forgotten what “tech test” means
Ah! This explains why I never got the download email after being accepted into the PS5 beta test this weekend.ID: h8vuunj
It is a pre-alpha test. Beta is supposed to be in SeptemberID: h8w7txe
Whatever it was, I was shown as scheduled confirmed on the EA site and then it changed to pending, then it just vanished. Was looking forward to testing it, I tested anthem a few years ago and we all know how well that went.
Battlefield always launches broken as fuck, it's a tradition that goes back to at least BF2!
While usually to in depth tech talk can bore me id actually love to know what constitutes a critical issue on a playable game made my a Triple A developer
can't wait to see kind of post "this prove ps5 is bad xbox is the winner this generation"ID: h8x3g5a
Not saying this is the case but there numerous examples of devs having to remove features on PS5 in comparison to Series X
Not even sure if I'll buy it release day. I'll wait to be sure it functions properly. Both online and off. I learned that lesson with Halo MCC, lol.
I love modern gaming, don't get me wrong. But damn do I miss the simpler N64 days.ID: h8x622c
Halo MCC was the biggest disappointment when it first launched on Xbox. Just matchmaking completely busted for months. Idk how that happened. But I play the hell out of Halo 3 still since it’s on PC.
Aw shit, here we go again.
had a shit ton of issues on pc also, have an rtx 3080
If this game busts I’m selling my ps5. It’s just a super expensive ps4 at this point..ID: h8wprs3
Must admit I'm feeling the same.ID: h8wf6k4
Who are they? Blue Box?
This shouldn’t even be news.
Delay it and get back to work!!
BF2042 got Abandoned.
Can I get dual entitlement for bf2042?ID: h8vnsk9
You can only get the Cross-Gen bundle by spending $100 or $120 on the Gold / Ultimate Editions respectively.
Well, i hope im wrong but im feeling this game might be a bit rushed. By the leaked footage ive seen too. Hopefully not, bc im a bfbc2 vet, but those of you who tested bf4 beta know exactly how i feel 🙂 Also, critical issues 2 months before release? Hmmm so strange for billion dollar companies. But maybe we dont know the whole story. Lets pray.
Do you have anything to backup that claim??ID: h8vie8h
Of course they don'tID: h8vh37g
They always ran at lower resolution on the base Xbox one vs the PS4 though.ID: h8wlywp
Yep, which makes it playing it on my Series X a bit weird. It takes a good 5 minutes for me get used to the graphics which is weird cause I don’t have that issue playing other games but something about BF4 just feels off graphic wise on the Xbox; but still a banger of a game.
