    looks interesting, may pick it up depending how the reviews and player counts look after release.

    This guy has some concerns



    Looks to have awesome gun customisation but apart from that doesn't seem to add anything over BF4.. From what I've seen it has less then BF4.

    Yea. I have seen that.

    Still I am more keen for a modern shooter like bf4 than ww2 bf5.

    Been burnt too many times by ea. And may as well support the new guys if they are still developing after release.

    Developers also seem to be more engaging with the players and listening to them.

    Yeah EA has turned to shit it’s time for a new Dev and publisher to create the classic battlefield experience.

    Also interested in this game, have been keeping an eye on it.
    It releases this Saturday. NDA for the technical test lifts tomorrow, so we should see lots of new info prior to release on the 20th. I'm optimistically cautious. The only thing that may set it apart from other early access games, is that the team is actually quite big - I believe Farm 51 has about 100 employees, which is far more than many other Early Access dev teams (Squad, Insurgency etc.)

    Seems interesting, but all depends on how many people buy it i guess, we will see how it goes.

    A video from LevelCap. He seems pretty impressed by it; performance seems pretty solid too.

    "We know that you experience problems connecting to our servers. We are working on it! Over the next few minutes, we will upload an update, which should fix the problem. All you have to do is download it and re-enter the game! Good luck have fun! "

    seems he may have been right

    'mixed'

    Though seems alot of the negatives are for people who cant get into a game, so will have to see.

    just had my first game,

    good things:
    • map layout is awesome
    • gun play and feel is awesome
    • it has a crisp but gritty feel to it,
    • gun and character configuration options is incredible (I could spend hours just doing this)
    • team play is really good.


    things to improve
    • only getting 40-50fps with my rig, probably needs some optimizations? (i can get 80fps average in BF1)
    • other players look clunky, (e.g. when running)
    • some sounds are great but others sound muffled,
    • still difficult to get into a game, but this should improve soon,
    overall It has a lot of potential, especially good for those who liked BF2-3-4

    Ill keep eye on more opinions once every1 can get games easy and that isnt an issue. But sounds promising so far.

    Yeah managed to get in the game. Game it a fair while to get part the loading screens
    Vehicles need more polish , the physics feel clunky
    Gunplay was good

    Sounds and audio are muffled
    Some scaling issues on text for me, UW1440p
    Wasn't sure what server I was on, so I had no idea of ping
    Alt tabbed to check on resources and it crashed :)
