Also how the hell is the grappling hook going to work I wonder? I know some BF title in the past had like a zipline that you could place anywhere but a straight up grappling hook ala BO4 would be cray cray.

CRAY CRAY I SAY!

I want to throw it at the heads of proning sniper campers and troll them. I need more troll equipment dice, where is my EOD bot?

Anti-sniper Camping suggestion: the more consecutive headshots you land in one minute, the greater chance that one rebounds off their cigarette lighter and one shots you from 400m away, with a big "PING!" like something out of XIII

My hype is pretty high for the cg trailer. I guess we see multiplayer in July?

I choose to believe that it's gameplay. Life just feels more awesome until I'm proven otherwise.

OH MY LAWD. Thing is I'm kinda shit nowadays but I'm gonna have fun. I just hope they fix vehicles properly in terms of spawns and it's not a fight to get one.
This game sounds AWESOME. Love the attachment system.

I'm just super happy we're back to modern times so hopefully we get some actually useful customization options again.

Man the weapons in BF1 and BFV suuuuuuuuuuck

Finally, WW1 was such a garbage setting and WW2 is so played out. I’ve been waiting for a modern/futuristic battlefield since BF4, the last one I put serious hours into.

If you want my money and time don’t set any shooter before the Vietnam War, you lose way too much variety in weapons. Last two COD’s have nailed it for me but this BF has got me excited.

that's the most stupid tag ever. if you limit yourself to buying only VR games then you're missing out on a lot of games. i couldn't imagine only playing VR games lol. you probably save yourself a lot of money buying like 3 games every 10 years.
still no buy. Yes, saves me a lot of bucks.

there's nothing new in these old flat games, it's the same shit since forever. I'm not missing anything.

but when they offer VR mode, I'm definitely checking out - because I definitely miss this high level of production not available in VR indies...

Just shown my friend the screenshots and he immediately went into attack mode.

"Meh. Not into the futuristic bull shit
That’s where COD lost its self years ago"

That response is based on the single screen shot of the guy in a wingsuit. Told him to chill and wait until the stream starts.

Some people...

LMAO FTW, the countdown ended and the so did the entire livestream, the description says to go here for the actual reveal trailer:


Which is yet another 1h countdown xD This is even bigger bullshit than what Sony did with HFW... I have little faith now that we will see even a second of actual gameplay, fuck you EA.

Here is the description for the game’s campaign:

“U.S.A. and Russia stand at the brink of war. Proxy wars have waged for decades, generating experienced but displaced combat veterans. These Specialists use their skills to shape the future — a future worth fighting for.”

Nice to see they're not recycling old stories/scenarios and are trying something new. :messenger_sleeping:

Honestly this game doesn't scream exactly next generation only... it remind me a lot graphically to BFV from those screenshot.

Can't wait till October.

The vibe I'm getting this will have huge maps with a LOT of vehicles, I am not a fan of too many vehicles as I prefer skill (as a soldier on foot) instead of dominating with a tank/APC.
