thinks Halo Infinite is a new graphical benchmark
By far the biggest story in gaming. For me I bought into Battlefield 2042 on the first trailer, I said thank you for going back to modern warfare, I spent the next months trying to dig out of the hate bubble good things about Battlefield 2042, by the end I actually pre ordered the PS5 version of the game and bought the Xbox One last gen game to see what's happening on the other team,
OK now lets get to the game, people on the Battlefield inner circles know the Battlefield franchise needed to show the world modern guns, it's a highly regarded respected franchise, the point is:
the makers of Battlefield were trying to move on from last generation, move on from world war 2.
Game launches, let's see what happens. It's mostly OK.
The first thing on gamers mind is big battlefield moments, up-stagged destruction. I was hoping for more, just a little bit more. The commitment from the makers of Battlefield just isn't there.
Gun attachments are treated as fresh unlocks and dodges menu screens, it feels real inspired based on the game's pace.
The Battlefield formula is very traditional multiplayer that's the necessary component, the master map design just isn't here. Maps like Kaleidoscope, Orbital, and Renewal have longevity though that throws in 128 players and are reminiscent of Battlefield 4 maps.
Not the worse map in the world...
You still have fighting inside, outside, on top of buildings, game modes that accomplish teamwork, weather effects that tamper your visibility and gunning for objects.
Four specialists that have replaced the traditional Battlefield classes
You can go back and play classic modes. I don't know why this isn't in Call of Duty. Battlefield is accused of lag, missing scoreboards, bugs but Portal places the franchise ahead and is the first gamechanger move that distances itself from other multiplayer shooters.
A high placed source told me the franchise is relieved to start next generation, making a video game today is a commitment. It requires updates, emotional responses from fans, justified criticism, there's no denying the game has problems and has torn gamers up. I still think it should have abandoned last generation.
PS4 version of the game...
We finally get a roadmap update, I guess the makers of Battlefield woke up and decided to add things. Is Battlefield 2042 something to be proud of? If they delay the game maybe the outcome is different. Yes we have a way to go before the game is complete, and playing up to gamers expectations.
GAF, is this the recipe for Battlefield going forward?
