I think that looks great. Debating whether to buy an early access beta code off CDkeys for £1.99 (PC)

Really hope that is accurate for the BR mode that they use fire rather than a "blue gas" looks like a much more interesting chase mechanic

You need a pre-order, EA Access or Origin Access to play on Tuesday.

Anyone can play on Thursday onwards.


I didn't pre order and it's on the PS Store to download, same with Xbox (I have Origin Access on PC but not EA Access on Xbox) downloading it on both Playstation and Xbone.

The pre-load has been available since Monday so you can download it but you shouldn't beable to play it until Thursday.

Just put a couple of hours into it and unsurprisingly it's pretty much BF1 but more difficult with no spotting and limited ammo/health.

Had one game and enjoyed it, defo need to give it a lot more time. But it didn't feel as congested as BF1.

The menus look washed out to strawberry float. Hopefully the game won’t be like that whenever I get a game started

How the hell do you fortify stuff or just use the engineer tool?

I'm not sure on that one.

I think I'll give this a miss. It's not very fun, the gunplay is very shallow and includes an aim bot :lol: every time I tried to lead a target it kept sticking to peoples heads :fp:

Got the beta ready to go later, really looking forward to this one mainly because it has single player. Just hope the multiplayer is up to snuff.

I tried the beta but it seems like my CPU is finally too old to play the latest BF game. I'll have to upgrade when I can afford it.

Played some more over the weekend. I tried the snow map mode this time (whatever it's called... where it's 3 rounds)

I haven't played Battlefield since BF3 so maybe it's been like this for a while now, but the game just doesn't feel like a Battlefield game at all. It feels closer to something like CoD.

It is actually really boring, the maps feel tiny, no big battles with lots of vehicles.

It seems to be a copy/paste of Battlefront? No vehicles on the map, the only way to get them seems to be through points via the squad leader.

Menu design is badddd. When I first loaded it up during the week it wouldn't recognise my early access code. After a google search I found a work around which was to delete the early access file off of the Xbox and then install it from the games main menu. It took me ages to find the option on the game menu (bottom option, hiding all the way over to the right). Why are the menu tiles so damn huge?! Also the splash screen is so bright and washed out that it's difficult to read it on my screen, almost like when the sun shines in your eyes :lol:

I know this is a "beta" but it's got a lot of bugs in. There have been 4+ occasions where I had to close the game and reload it because I was stuck between an alive/dead purgatory state, where I had spawned/been revived but the game left me with the spawn UI still.

Couldn't seem to change weapon loadouts? Maybe that's intentional for a classic Battlefield 1942 type experience with basic classes having a preset set of gear.

Ammo feels sparse. Again this might be intentional but I seemed to run out of bullets with every class other than the sniper which made it the only one I ended up playing with.

Just overall this feels like a "my first battlefield" which is exactly the same problems I have with the battlefront games. All the classes feel samey in a way, like with everyone being able to revive (although nobody actually does, instead everyone seems to play solo)

Yuuuuup.

It's rubbish. The whole thing feels like a war of attrition until someone gets a tank then it's game over for the other team. The snow level is slightly more interesting than the Rotterdam one but it's still rubbish.

The guns feel like peashooters, the average lifespan is around 20 seconds and actually feeling like you're contributing to a solid push feels impossible.

War Stories were actually really good in Battlefield 1...reminds me I should actually play them more at some point.

I didn't enjoy this at all, they nailed the gunplay in BF1, I've no idea why they felt the need to re-invent things. It plays nothing like BF4 or 1 and I hate the shorter TTK, it's the reason I gave up on CoD. It also didn't feel like a WW2 game, in B1 if you played a full conquest match to the end you'd know it was World War 1 with the skins, weapons, tanks and mustard gas as well as the muddy levels and the overall style. I played the Rotherdam map twice and I could have been playing a game based in the 70's, there's no Nazi memorabilia or iconic anything anywhere.

it's a shame really because if this game doesn't do so well it'll be because "there's a woman on the cover" :fp:

I played a load of Battlefield 4, and loved it to bits (other than the launch (or was it the first 6 months))
However Overwatch and then PUBG really have changed what I want from a multiplayer shooter. I tried BF1 and it didn't grab me at all, and this feels exactly the same.

I just expect something more, maybe the bigger game modes would grab me, but playing these small maps with constant dying really does nothing to make me want to investigate any further.

I'm not as negative about this as you guys.
I quite like the fact that ammo and health are limited as it makes medics and support players more vital and squad play much more meaningful. I do agree though that even though they are trying to make squad play a focus in the beta most players just strawberry float off on their own and don't have mics so trying to organise a squad in even a basic way is impossible.

I quite like the new fortification mechanics it can change the level quite a bit and I don't think tanks are overpowered at all as they are actually weak as gooseberry fool and lack decent weapons, the turrets are slow as hell to turn and they have super limited ammo.

Overall I quite liked the beta and will buy the game as I think it will be improved.

Funny story: I've never once been revived in this. Several times I bled out whilst surrounded by teammates, and no-one bothered.

A fault of the community not the game, but still.
