The battlefields are changing before your eyes. A state-of-the-art arsenal is at your disposal. All-out war is back.
Adapt and challenge yourself in large-scale 128-player battles (only on next gen), where dynamic storms, environmental hazards, complete combat freedom, and iconic Battlefield destruction unleash a unique new generation in Battlefield moments.




THE SPECIALISTS:
Choose your role on the battlefield and form custom squads using the new Specialist system.
Drawing inspiration from the four classes of Battlefield, Specialists have a unique specialty and attribute, but the rest of the gear is fully editable.
By selecting and equipping your Specialist, establish synergies with the squad and overcome all obstacles in combat.


THE WORLD
In 2042, extreme weather conditions and conflict over resources have changed the balance of world power.
As a war threatens to break out between the United States and Russia, groups of homeless veterans appear: The Homeless Task Forces. Fight for the future in this unique theater of war.
A shortage of food and fuel sparks a shadow war between the United States and Russia. To hide their responsibility, the two sides appropriated the services of the Task Force and waged a proxy war for control of resources.
Open war is imminent. The Homeless Task Forces have no choice but to choose their side. They are fighting not for a flag, but for their future.

from a visual standpoint this looked mighty unimpresive....I barely saw any destruction either. This looks more like a BF4 2.0 than a "new gen bf"...the last gen baggage really shows, unfortunately.
Besides that it looks like a "back to the roots all around mayhem" BF.

Yeah, I'm gonna pass not impressed at all
Then what is?
Ps4 can't do graphics that good.
Lol if u think ps4 and its shitty jaguar cores and gpu can do that...go ahead...keep thinking that
Really? I can tell Xbox One X & PS4 PRO will look close enough.
There's nothing Next-Gen about those trailers

If you're not liking these graphics, you're going to be increasingly disappointed going forward.
Ps1 to ps2 jumps are long gone and over with.

Lol 1080p 64players 30fps....ya...basic shit for vase consoles. next gen is not only about graphics, grow up. There many factors that make the game next gen and in here, the graphics are included. Xbox 360 and ps3 could not even run bf3 properly. Same here. Get used to it, cross gen will be here for a while. Blame ur shitty consoles for next gen being held back

BF trailers always look so choreographed. Imagine playing a MP with those weather effects and cheaters having no issue seeing through them. Are you guys excited for that? Because if you think DICE invested in an anti-cheat, you'd be fucking naive. Also who the fuck will play a MP with low fps because those weather effects will not come cheap. Pass.

I'm not the one blowing my nut over an unimpressive game and getting mad when people don't agree.
Glad you like it, maybe I'll be impressed with the next one.

Well looks like modern Battlefield goodness. Hopefully I am up for it. What's with changing the attachments mid-match though?

Sadly looks a bit shit tbh... the more battlefields comes out the less I want to play them. As soon as I saw the sniper with the rapple gun I was like "na I'm done" the storm shit just says "annoying" to me to... its really just BF V slightly in the future with all the bullshit that came with it.

It looks like there trying to build something that looks cool, rather than plays well.

I watched the 4k trailer. This is like a step back from BF5, even from BF1, graphics wise. It's like a BF 4(which i love) remake done buy Crytek. Probably the ugliest HUD in any BF game.

I don't like vehicle combat in BF games(yeah, i know) and here we are having more of it. It's like the biggest star in this game. Unpopular opinion, i know.

Things i liked; grapple and wingsuit. They don't fit well to BF formula though.

Why ? zip lines and parachutes are literally a staple of the franchise since BF 2. In fact its BF 2 Special Forces which introduced them along with night maps, the gas mask and all of that stuff

This will be amazing. I felt it was too manic though, I would have liked to have seen someone like jackfrags just having a round or something.

I'll take up to128 players, massive all out warfare with smooth, responsive controls (i hope!) over snazzy graphics. Any day of the week.
