Watching that Jackfrags video on making your own game modes just has me unreasonably excited for this. I don't think I've actually been this excited for a game in a decade. The bots just make it seem like an actual sequel for BF2 that I've waited for so long.

Same, games are so plentiful these days that any AAA release doesn't really make me feel that anticipation. BF2042 is looking really exciting. With those 7 new HUGE maps and now 6 more classics with the potential for so many fun game variations, there's so much content. And, with native new-gen versions, 128 players and another mode to announce, this is going to kick rear end.

So they definitely understand that "fun" was the missing piece in their sandbox war game but still they might gently caress up any number of things even if the beta goes well.

That's why they gave us an editor, let people make their own fun and you don't have to put in effort. Bing Bong so simple.

I wouldn't be surprised if 2142 is a Season 2 plan for Battlefield Portal.

2142 feels like probably the biggest lift to me in terms of unique assets required to be built in order to implement, I'd guess it'd be more of a season 4 or 5 thing.

I may be dense, but how exactly does this new mode work? Is it a server admin tool only? Or can I just fire up the game, create my custom match, populate it with bots and invite other players?

Yeah my understanding is that it's like Halo 3 custom games. Just set your options and start a match.

The portal tool itself is external to the game (the game isn’t even required to use it). You just create your settings and export it to presumably a config file that you can share or load while hosting a match.

I wonder how much fun it is to go through 3 billion different servers with custom modes to find one that is actually fun. After all, filtering the servers in the other games to get rid of "24/7 what have you" ones was already a pain.
They said there will be a quick match feature for one they seem the more “popular” custom games. Though I’d imagine only dedicated servers will be listed in the ingame browser to cut down on the number of servers.

The optimist in me says that the minor flop of BFV, plus COD/Warzone being the big FPS boi at the moment gave them real motivation to pull all the stops out.

By all accounts there was some house cleaning after BFV in terms of staff and it's been rumored that EA basically took the reins away from Dice Sweden for this round

Using licensed music is sacrilege for a Battlefield trailer, only remixes of the 1942 main theme are kosher. For the reveal and gameplay trailers they just grabbed the songs off an “epic music” youtube channel called 2WEI. It’s wasn’t even specially composed for the game!

They did at least edit in the BF sting to the song (and sound effects) which was better than nothing, but a proper return to an orchestral version (or a non-orchestral cover that's at least mainly based on the original and not just the sting added in) would be heartily appreciated.

2WEI has been contracted to make remixes specifically for the BF reveals since BF1

Seriously, would love a reveal trailer of PAC walkers just running rampage through BFV German soldiers.

Ideally backed up by their hover tanks and their hover scout-car/suicide machine (seriously if that thing was real so many soldiers would be hurt/killed driving it because it just looks like it punishes stupid drivers and anyone in a 3 kilometer radius)

Heck, have them staring down advancing Russian forces only for RUSSIANS FROM THE FUTURE! to suddenly start appearing.

Legit want them to add 2142 so they could add a Titan Mode to nearly every map.

Karkand Titan (admittedly that would require a BF2 mode). Heck, any of the maps in BF1 that got a zeppelin can now have TWO future-zeppelins!

I can’t wait to join millions of other players from around the world in chaotic and sprawling 128 player battles across 7 huge maps, from storm ravaged tropical islands to sand storm choked cities. The new Battlefield Portal which is bringing back my favorite weapons, vehicles, and maps from past Battlefield games such as Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield Bad Company 2 and combining that with the all new custom mode features of Battlefield 2042 promises to be an explosive combination of past, present, and future!

Russian Trench + Flares = BF1 Snypa Life. Like it almost doesn't even matter that you get free points for lighting an area up: you get to cast fireball in modern shooter.

Though generally I preferred to go Assault (with just about any loadout/primary) mixed with gas grenades: Assaults are the class least likely to require/want/need to look down sights anyways, who cares if you're wearing your gas mask at all times?

There is one weapon for assault where looking down the sights is fun and good: The double-barrel model 1900 with slugs. Beaning snipers from a hundred meters with that thing is just :discourse:
