    Battlefield is becoming Just Cause?

    What they showed in the trailer is effectively where BF starts (serious, battles, squaddies) and then owning where BF ends up which is just gamers being creative and silly.

    I don't quite get where the Just Cause comparison is coming from, is it because of the Wingsuit?

    Looks stunning - as Dice Games always do... would love to believe the minute-to-minute gameplay doesn't suck as badly as the recent titles in this franchise.

    On the back-burner for me until I've read some impartial reviews.

    Re: Battlefield 2042 reveal trailer released by EA

    Not something i would be interested in playing i am sure.

    But it look good, no doubt about that, but the kind of gameplay and maps are not to my liking

    Re: Battlefield 2042 reveal trailer released by EA

    I am sad there won't be a single player campaign But otherwise could be pretty good - I really enjoyed 2142 and if they go down the same road it could be good..we'll see.

    The other major disappointment is the lack of a BR mode - I was hoping it would be a Warzone killer as it has no real competition out there at the moment, but sadly not the case. Unless they are just being coy and they will have an "elimination" mode instead which is a BR in all but name

    I will buy it anyway, I typically enjoy the Battlefield series

    One of the scenes where they were in a grassy area looked like the outside of the metro map, might have been just a similar looking scenery.

    I think because of the pilot jumping out of a plane - shooting a rocket at another plane then jumping back into original plane. Very Just cause... Works great in that games over the top nature but in BF just looks stupid.

    I'd be excited but no single player so no buy from me.

    I would say their inspiration has come from BF(4) itself.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    That entire sequence is homage to the memes and jokes made from Battlefield games in general, not Just Cause. Terbinator has linked the vid above and yes you can do silly things like that in JC, most of the ridiculous stunts in the latter half of the reveal trailer were geberally based around the kind of silly antics that players get up to in BF games in the name of victory.

    To me, JC is known for attaching thrusters to peoples bits and watching them fly off.

    The Battlefield series pretty much died for me after they released BF2, more specifically when they released the expansions for it and split the community for no reason other than a money grab.

    Re: Battlefield 2042 reveal trailer released by EA

    Not just the wing suits, being able to fight inside a tornado (the weather phenomenon, not the plane,) and use it with a parachute to redeploy seems a bit out of character too.

    DICE realised the futility of the 'Premium' model of releasing expansion packs, I believe. BF5 ditched Premium in favour of a 'live service' model, & BF2142 is set to do the same thing, so everyone who buys the game will have access to future map releases.
