"It's J is for...you know what? Fuck it, jizz it is"


Are you getting up there in age and tired of extremely low TTK twitch shooters and sweaty Battle Royale modes? Well have we got half of a solution for you!

Following in the footsteps of Battlefield 1942, Battlefield Vietnam, Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Battlefield Hardline, Battlefield....1(?), Battlefield...(Jesus Christ really?) V, Battlefield 2042 will be the sixth, twelfth mainline and seventeenth installment of the nearly two decade old Battlefield series and is set in a near future climate ravaged world. Look for it to be a prequel to 2142 and the events leading up to that game's story with nations crumbling ie coming soon to a world near you!

I gotta admit, the countdown to the countdown was pretty hilarious. Why on earth would they do that! The chat went bananas.

Really excited about this. I think Battlefield is my most-played game ever. Can't wait for one to take advantage of the PS5 (I know it's cross-gen, but still).

For the love of gently caress, please be good. I've been playing just a little bit of BF4 for nostalgia's sake a while back, and it's remarkable how much better it felt than either BF1 or BFV. Just give me weird semi-future gadgets to bully snipers with, that's all I want.

This game is pretty much dead on arrival unless its a Battle Royale that shakes up the genre. I don't care for Battlefield either way, and would never play a BR, but most people that play these games only want to play BR modes now.

Waroduce
Aug 5, 2008


I'm very curious to see how many resources they dedicated to their BR mode. I'd be very interested in being present during the meeting where they decide if they're going to allocate the resources to build out a robust firestorm/whatever experience that meets player expectations or if they cede the BR space (or promise it after launch) to focus on the core gameplay and features that players play battlefield for and attempt to breathe life in the franchise by going back to what made them great.

From a monetization perspective, I'd probably argue that having some sort of tacked on minimally viable BR experience at launch is a requirement in order to roll out the game "as a service" and keeps user engaged by selling them the treadmill of a "battlepass".

It's likely going to have a BR mode


Plot wise just heard in the countdown "The UN has announced nearly 1 billion people have been displaced due to the drastic" then cut out and earlier something about a Category 6 storm

64vs64 player combined arms battles is more interesting than Battle Royales for a fair amount of gamers. I don't think the markets really overlap much. I've never had any interest touching a BR.

It won't be DOA, but if you're going to put out a BR mode it has to be f2p to compete. Firestorm mode in Battlefield V died at launch because it was behind a paywall.

I agree with this but I'd be super interested in seeing some research about it.
