    How cool would it be if you could grapple hook onto a chopper for a free ride. Let's hope!

    I would bet a 2016 or earlier era CPU will be more of an issue than a 1070. The skylakes are 5 years old now.

    5 years?

    I'm expecting my 7 year old 5820k Haswell to run it without any issues. :leet:

    The frostbite engine has great multicore support.

    Its your per core performance that will let you down. But at a high enough res you could probably create enough of a gpu bottleneck.

    I thought Haswell was starting to show it's age a bit in BF1? Hopefully they're making great use of many cores so this 5900X can get a workout

    Pretty keen for this

    What's this I hear about this being some kind of prequal to 2142? How does that make any sense? that's a 100 years away... could you say 1942 was a prequal to this one? seem silly...

    I'm a bit worried about this weather effect thing... seems cool at first... but I think it will just become an annoying novelty... everytime halfway through certain maps will it be "oh great heres the nado again, brb grabbing a drink"

    Still excited to see it though!

    Well, there is precendent.

    I guess it's sort of a prequel if it's set in the same universe?

    Guess I doubt a war could last that long with modern technology... wouldn't be much left, if anything, to fight for. (Were ww1 and ww2 a 30 year war? same justification as the 100 year war would say they were linked, as 1389-1415 is a longer non conflict period)

    You could then say every war on the planet was a prequal for every subsequent war using the same universe logic


    I appreciate your attempt to help me understand this mystery link, but I still don't
