Was it just a trailer? no Gameplay?
A teaser of sorts. You get an idea of where teh battles are going to take place. The kind of locales we'll see, what kind of battles we'll see etc.

I'm all for the setting. The geography is up my alley. Very BF3/4 looking maps. Back to modern warfare. I'm all for this.

Screenshots actually made it look good, in-engine cinematic not so much.
Fucking pointy haired boss & marketing demanded something meme'able, so except soulless influencers trying to get GIFs of certain scenes to trend.

Torn between two feelings. I guess it kinda looked good but it also seemed a bit over the top. Especially the jumping out of the jet and firing a bazooka thing, that sort of stuff is funny/fun because it's the sort of thing players came up with organically, it's not cool if the game creators put it in themselves.

Also looking at how many different character models there were on screen (with almost no consistency at all), I think they are going to be selling cosmetic stuff hard (gotta get that microtransaction money).

I'll reserve full judgement til we see actual gameplay on June 13th, but for now I give it a "hmmm".

Fount it:



Meh, just some in-game bits here and there, thankfully the proper gameplay reveal will take place in just 4 days. But honestly, at times it looked more like CoD than BF, underwhelming, cross-gen...

Just watched the trailer at 4K 25% speed. Highly recommend. Game is a stunner while also being noticeably hardware limited/cross gen, if that makes sense.


Looks much better than I expected, but still, I know it will look even better later current gen only.

I missed these classic E3 bullshots.


Yeah remember these?

Dice have always been masters of their craft. People eat crow every time they deny these games look stunning in realtime when the first trailers release.

Love the fact, they toned down the specular highlights from BF5, giving it a more realistic flatter look, similar to BF4.

Taking over sectors permanently, and 64v64!!!

Really hate the zone games in BF4/5, where constantly gaining and losing zones for points. After a while, you feel like you running around like a headless chicken, never knowing what is the front line, like real war. Spawning in, and trying to get your bearings is confusing, and your team-mates are all over the place.

Might be tempted to get this, even though these type of MP games tend to be huge time sinks, where you do very little else. Had to delete BF4 off my PS5, just so I get back to playing other games.

I'm good thanks, will play Warzone and Halo multiplayer for free. Multiplayer only game with 7 maps is not worth more than $20 to me.
