I think i'm dumb because I thought the previous BF games were already 64 vs 64? Otherwise it was 32x32, which means mofos just doubled up.
64 players total was the max in all previous games.

Also did this get mentioned? I know it was leaked this might be the case, I wonder if the maps will have a different size?



*Xbox One and PlayStation®4 supports 64 players. 128 players and massive-scale maps are available on Xbox Series X|S, PC, and PlayStation®5.

Game ships with 10 classes/specialists and plans for more as DLC. Are they masochists when it comes to gameplay balance? That sounds insane unless it’s just lazy “these two supports are identical except one has health kits and the other has ammo.”

Specialists are just an active ability, like a drone or an auto turret. Of course there will be ones that are super similar and of course some will be gimmicks and of course some will be bad and some will be the 'meta' one that the tryhards use. It's a fine setup, it shakes things up regularly. There only needs to be a few at any given time that are balanced. Apex & Siege have a ton of operators and legends that are effectively legacy at this point and it's OK.

Honestly the no campaign is a great choice. Their campaigns were super high budget and very few people played them. Just put all the loving resources into making giant maps, gamebalance and multiplayer content.

im cautiously optimistic about the specialists. Its gonna be convenient being able to use any weapon with any gadget, but im a bit worried itll end up like BFV where everyone has the best anti-infantry and anti-vehicle setup at all times

I'm hoping they learned from that. I think the biggest problem was that they scraped bfv's specialization/subclass system, which wouldve restricted the weapon/gadget combos you could take.

There was some hilariously stupid rumor a couple months back of the game serving as some sort of hub for older titles and also cross era play (Tigers vs T-90s) but lmao no

I don't believe for a second that they're doing this, but putting WWI, WWII, and Future War equipment all against each other on maps from each era would be stupid in a way that sounds really fun.

Was anyone else mildly weirded out by how much the trailer focused on people getting squished/ shot en masse/running in terror rather than doing cool things? Most of the people “winning” were kind of framed as the bad guy (or were just forces of nature), while the ones framed as protagonists just got chased/slaughtered.

Aside from that weird vibe, looks cool. Interested to see actual gameplay.

All I request is the ability to turn small vehicles into rolling bombs once again.

I had something like 8,000 jihad C4 kills in BF4. It was so satisfying and relaxing tracking down tanks and then bailing at the last second.

I think they wanted to show high player counts and massive destruction at the expense of about 20 soldiers at a time

This is probably the ability of the specialist with an auto turret

If it's not that it's one of the vehicles you can drop in

I had something like 8,000 jihad C4 kills in BF4. It was so satisfying and relaxing tracking down tanks and then bailing at the last second.

The people who complain about C4 attacks are the vehicle equivalent of snipers on a hill. They just want to sit somewhere risk free and shoot at infantry with their 1 hit kill weapon. And in the case of vehicles you don’t have to worry about being 1 hit kill back and don’t even have to land headshots.

Heck I made a point about getting good with the MAA in BF4 so I was constantly looking up into the sky and not being able to see things coming at me. It was just as much fun dealing with C4 attacks when they happened as it was shooting the jets. I typically died to someone on an ATV once so at that point I knew someone was around doing it, and then it became an awesome game of cat and mouse. I had to keep an eye out for ATVs out in the distance, thinking if they were going for me or just driving to a point, look at the main map all the time in case someone spotted an ATV and it was out in the middle of nowhere (like say it was trying to hide from a tank for as long as possible). They had to think about the routes they would take to try and get as close as possible before being obvious. Maybe they had to wait until they knew I was shooting at a jet or when I was running away from something else that started shooting me. There were a few rare times some dedicated C4’ers even accused me of cheating because I saw them coming too often which is always a :smug: feeling.

If this is a return to poorly balanced vehicles and weapons that create fun and creative ways to play the game it could actually own.

I want more games to abandon the idea of a shooter having to be perfectly balanced in all ways such that it feels sterile. Battlefield is never going to be an e-sport, let me do some dumb poo poo and laugh when I actually pull it off one out of every 20 tries.
