I see what they were going for ... but making a cinematic trailer out of all the silly stuff that happens in BF kinda misses the point for me. 

 

This is what I've been struggling to articulate, so thank you! Yes, precisely this. Still, we'll wait and see.

Think it’s actual gameplay on 13th as opposed to a trailer. Well, hope so!

 

Odds on a 96 hour long countdown to the gameplay trailer?  On a separate video stream to the actual gameplay trailer?  Which will feature a LOT of fading to black?

So they've dropped classes and are moving over to equip what you want with rainbow six siege style "specialists" that have special skills like healing guns/wingsuits/grappling hooks. Which means no more terrible Battlefield V medics have shit guns because balance bullshit!

 

Really exciting, if they confirm spotting is back to how it was pre V they're making a Battlefield just for me (and from the sound of things Broker)!

What a goofy trailer. I don't know who they're trying to appeal to. The graphics that don't involve people look great but the skeletal animation looks bad to me.

When the big neon sign hit the floor, did anyone else think it was a big stompy mech foot for a second?

They probably should have added mechs tbh.

Also 13th is going to be at the Xbox or PC showcase, yes? I can't see an EA conference anywhere.


EA Play is July 22nd so it’s definitely not that.

It's mostly nostalgia-pandering - here's all the stuff you remember from BF3/4! Damavand Peak! Noshahar Canals! Zook-da-loops!

 

The actual game getting to make a case for itself is weirdly sidelined.

The colour schemes chosen for the settings all seem a bit drab, all very grey/white to start with then sandy orange/red in the next setting, then back to grey. if it makes for clearer identification of enemies I'm all for it but I doubt they've done it for that reason.

Sounds fine, what I'm most interested in is what its DLC policy is and whether or not it has crossplay. 


Yeah crossplay will be a big deal for me this time out, hopefully they’ve been smart enough to plan for it from the start.

I thought the exact opposite, it’s really nice to see a cinematic trailer that actually seems to understand what’s fun about Battlefield, as opposed to the tiring “this is a very serious game” trailers we usually get. So glad there’s no single player either, because I think that drives their weird attitude that their war games are very serious about war.

If they hadn’t put out two shit games in a row that turned off a lot of the fanbase they wouldn’t need to let everyone know that they’ve actually remembered to make this one fun and a worthy sequel to 4. 
 

They don’t even need much unique stuff, I’m well up for “more BF4” on principle.

Have they definitely explicitly ruled out battle royale?

 

Because that reads suspiciously like a BR mode.


Could be a Counter Strike style team vs team elimination mode?
