    Re: Battlefield 2042 beta begins on 6th October

    Haven't played BF since BF3, got bored of EA bringing out new maps and DLC etc rather than fixing bugs...

    If they do a free version in the same sort of vein as Fortnite or WArzone then I might be interested, but I don't play often enough to warrant paying for games these days..

    Doesn't look like much of a step up from BF4.

    It's not. But after the complete rubbish of V, thats a major improvement.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    You can count me wayyyyyyyyyy OUT.
    PS: I have never played any of the BF games. As i recall from game #1 they did not have CTF, and that is about the only worth while game mode in my book.

    Probably the first MP FPS I'll get since BF4. Hated 1, thought the setting was just ridiculous. Was on the fence about 5 - liked the game but none of my mates did. Been waiting for a return to modern shooters, so deffo looking forward to this.

    I'm surprised they haven't slapped "bad company" on their games to squeeze a bit more $$$ out of their customers

    Re: Battlefield 2042 beta begins on 6th October

    I used to enjoy playing BF Vietnam (which had an awesome soundtrack, btw) and BF2 with a few friends, but only private LAN games. I could never be @rsed playing on public servers, where I would've had my backside handed to me on a plate by kids who play for 10 hours per day.

    Haven't played since BF2 though because, from BF3 onwards, Dice removed bots. It looks like 2042 will have bots though, so I may give it a look if reviews are favourable.
