    Unexpected =/= defying the "12 year olds on consoles" design rule. Korean War would interest no one.

    Blah blah blah, and yet Battlefront was pretty trouble free even during the beta.

    And "real BF veterans" don't let launch issues stop them, they work around the issues and still kick ass. In fact the BF3 and BF4 betas were some of my favorite times because nobody else knows WTF they're doing and you can dominate without much effort.

    I remember servers crashing constantly and losing xp gained from them. The game was a mess at launch, but it didn't stop me from playing it.

    Battlefront was practically flawless when it released.

    You're right. Real BF veterans don't let that stuff stop them. That's why I have 2000 hours in BF4. :D

    The beta will be interesting for sure. I wonder who will be the first one to literally tear a hole in the game with C4 and get under the map?:ROFLMAO:

    If it is 2143 or anything futuristic, I will be sitting it out. I just don't enjoy futuristic shooters.

    My plan will be the same as always though to wait for Black Friday sales to pick up the game and premium for $60 so I can also avoid the launch issues.

    World War Z: L4D at Battlefield scale?!

    I know most are tired of zombies but c'mon, that would be awesome.

    I'd probably agree. BF4 could piss me off but the thing that keeps me interested is the modern theme. And every other MP shooter sucks out there and there are no good vehicle shooters that aren't MMOs. I wouldn't mind a semi futuristic DLC like we had in BF4 though, mixed in with mostly real world stuff.

    Ah the days of dedicated servers, too bad they're relegated to low budget early access games now.

    Bad Company Series did this. BC2 single player campaign had an alternate history and even a mission that took place in WWII while fighting the Japanese. Then later on BC2 multiplayer revisited BF:Vietnam.

    Anyone else have a bad feeling there will be no dedicated servers? After battlefront I really am worried about this.

    Nope ☺All new battlefields games ( BF 3 / BF 4 / Hardline ) use battle log = dedicated servers.

    The 9 second teasers does not lend itself to anything futuristic. There are no special helmets or glasses. Very simplistic attire and I would say from that we are really looking back in time to quite possibly before WW1 even.

    Various bits available seem to suggest some sort of blend in terms of settings/periods/genre.

    Battlefield 1942 vs 2042 vs 2142. ;)

    A mix would really be the most unexpected (well reasonably) setting.


    The looming shadow? Flying saucer? Aliens? ;)

    Yea you're right. I just noticed that shadow after watching a second time. Maybe its civilians fighting aliens?

    It does seem to go inline with the it will be called battlefield 1 and 1920 rumor.

    If it's true I hope CoD sales are complete trash this year and Battlefield sells a ton. Fuck this future nonsense, WW1 and WW2 please!

    Ehh, these pictures worry me. I sure hope the reason they're doing a weird alternate history WW1 isn't so they can justify selling Battle Packs by making every weapon have a billion attachments/colors.

    This is what i was expecting


    Battlefield 1 is slightly better then doing the cool thing now and just calling it battlefield.

    I can see it now, tactical horse armor dlc!
