Any impressions from the single player campaign? I would have been interested in 1:1 deathmatch but not a huge multiplayer guy otherwise and I'm hearing there is no 1:1 deathmatch in this game which is dumb but whatever. I'm curious as to if the single player will be worth purchasing the game for or if I should just wait for a major price drop.
There is no singleplayer in a MP beta ;) So nobody knows how the SP plays


@New Patch, i wonder what else they patched/added/changed.

FOV slider on consoles was unexpected
No kidding, that's actually pretty impressive. I like the idea of being able to remove the damage numbers too. It feels so pointless in a game like this. I'm surprised they're even patching for open beta, but I'm glad they are. It's the smart thing to do. Here's to hoping there are some audio fixes.

Awesome that we're getting an FoV slider on consoles. This is one of the few games I wish had a wider one. Hope it doesn't give too much of a hit to performance.

Any chance the game gets equal starts and weapon pickups on the map?
Both of these are possible with SnapMap. The only issue with SnapMap is the 4-player limit. But yes, you can create a 4-player Free-For-All mode with weapon pickups and faster movement, or a 1v1 mode of course.

Besides the FOV slider and the damage numbers toggle, I also noticed there's a separate volume slider for the announcer now. Or was that there before? If that's new, I'm guessing iD's idea of answering the feedback is letting players turn the announcer off. lol

Yeah noticed that too. The Audio doesnt seem to go overboard now when i start the game at the Id Intro.

Anyone see a music slider?
There was a music slider in the Closed Beta, so it's still there.

If you're asking if there's in-game music now, there's no evidence for that. That's my number one request for the multiplayer, and I think it's really stupid not to have built-in music. Providing some mood-setting music will really go a long way in having the multiplayer click with people faster.

Luckily I can use the PS4's custom soundtracks feature.

I downloaded this last night because I though the open beta was online, then it said the dedis were offline and I was so confused then the advertisement informed me it's not live to Friday so that was disappointing. Though an FPS with a view slider is something cool especially on console, cant wait to see what having peripheral vision in a damn console fps will be like.
