Here's what we know so far:

  • Modern setting
  • 128 players on current gen and PC
  • 64 player on last gen
  • $59.99 for last gen and PC
  • $69.99 for current gen

For those of you that like your pictures moving, I'll update the thread once the trailer goes live, in about 2 hours from now.

I'll give BF6 a try when it comes to EA Pro members so I won't pay full price.

I'm worried that it'll be modern, but not BF4 modern. It'll be a reimagining of modern war like how BF1 and BFV are for WW1 and WW2. We'll see.

You forgot the name. It's apparently going to be called Battlefield 2042.

Anyway, there's going to be a reveal stream in about 35 minutes, if anyone's curious enough. Here's the YouTube stream:

I want a mashup of the events from BF3 and BF4 with Bad Company 2 which were all leading to WW3. If that's what BF6 is then I'll be buying two copies.

I was hoping it's the BF4 successor set in the modern era. If that's the case, its another reason I'll just play it through EA Pro sub. Why can't EA just go back to Bad Company?

Haven't played BFV online but I liked the BF1's mode (forget what it is called) where it's offense and defense moving the line of battle forward until all zones captured or requisitions run out, and there is like three attempts. Seems like an evolution of Rush mode. I liked this as never been a big fan of classic Conquest mode. Curious to see what they'll do in this regard, having offense and defense modes.

Here's a good starting tip: be a medic. That way you can learn the ins and outs of the game while helping out others by healing and reviving them. The focus won't be on shooting so much then.

If you are a lone wolf, in that case you can check out the Sniper class instead ;)

Maps will be bigger of course, but yeah. I remember the days of 64 player Operations and Rush, it was pure chaos.

I'm interested to see what they do with the (already confirmed) battle royale mode.

I heard it'll be free to play.

True, a good soldier will change up classes.

But I hear a lot of people saying they like playing medic because it's more chilled out and not all about that K/D

Fun thing: a lot of people try getting top of the scoreboard playing as medic, and getting 0 kills.

@R4gn4r0k: I am not new to BF. I played it a shitload back when they were worth playing. I'll go with the class that has weapons i like. I just want the AN-94 to be in this game, and be as good as it was in BC2 😭

In BC2, the BF game i played the most, i played them all.

Recon with M95 with the Colt. Leg shot with sniper, swap to the Colt and finish them off across the map with a pistol. That shit was funny and i missed it so much in the later BF games.

Medic with mah gangsta PKM.

Assault with the AN-94. Prob my fav assault rifle in any BF game.

With Engineer i only played it when abusing tanks or piping with the Carl Gustave before they nerfed it. The Saiga with slugs was also amazing before they nerfed slugs.

This BF better be good cuz i do want a BF game in my life.

AN-94 noob

>:P

It was considered noob? I wasn't visiting any BF forums, so i had no idea. I began running it as soon as i unlocked it, back when everyone was running the broken M16 and the M60 before they nerfed them. I am the OGπŸ‘€

I would love Bad Company 3. 2042 tells me it's going to be weird.

Oh come on, it's a one-hour countdown. False alarm, everyone.

I was wondering why the stream wasn't showing up on their Twitch channel. Turns out the countdown has only just started.

I'm pulling your leg, don't get so worked up like you're being presented with a new Ubisoft game 🀣

Man, I just wanted to say: Bad Company 2 was amazing, I had such a great time playing it!

The destruction, the levels, the weapons... And it got one hell of an expansion too

People playing Bad Company 2 on a triple monitor setup is what got me interested in buying an ultrawide monitor in the end (wider FOV, but no stupid bezels)

Battlefield 4 in this pic, for lack of a better one.

Given how some BFs I liked and some I hated it is entirely possible that the countdown timer may be more fun than the actual game

I thought it was in one hour, than I saw Twitter going crazy, and I tuned in.

But I turned it off after 2 minutes of static :P

20 something minutes now.

Yeah I'm not big on futuristic, or even modern warfare.

COD is doing WWII this year... but then that game has tiny maps and gameplay that is not up to my liking.

Now we're down to "Stand by." Looks like it's time.

Unfortunately, the trailer is premiering on a different video, here:

Loading Video...

So, to recap, one hour-long stream for the countdown, and a separate stream for the trailer itself. FFS, EA, you can't even go one trailer reveal without making it obtuse as Hell.

Anyway, it's on now.

It... ...looks like a Battlefield game. I do appreciate that it's not even keeping up the pretence of realism this time, and actually featured that old "jump out of plane, stick a rocket up pursuer's arse, jump back in plane" trick that the BF games have been known for. Saves a lot of time.

Anyway, gameplay reveal on June 13th, probably during the Xbox E3 show.

Looked bad. Since they're showing gameplay in a few days, i can deal with that, but if it was just this teaser shit... please f off. Enough with teasers that don't show any in game visuals, animations, physics, etc.

Some more details, courtesy of PC Gamer:

  • The max player count has been doubled to 128 on PC and the new consoles
  • The 128-player maps are divided into sectors containing clusters of control points; capture all the control points in a sector to control it
  • Classes (engineer, assault, support, etc) are now categories that contain specialists. Each specialist has a backstory and unique gadget, but can carry any gun.
  • Gadgets we've seen: A grappling hook, a health/revive gun (think Doc in Rainbow Six Siege), an auto-turret (think Team Fortress 2), a movement sensor (to catch people sneaking up on your while you're sniping)
  • 10 specialists at a launch
  • Purchasable battle passes; four seasons and four new specialists per year
  • Post-launch maps will all be free
  • "Levolution" is back, baby. What we've seen: tornadoes lift players and vehicles into a vortex, a sandstorm blots out the sky, a space rocket launches (or maybe explodes)
  • Everyone has a wingsuit
  • Some vehicles will have spotter seats (a small detail but I like the sound of it)
  • No battle royale, but there are some mystery modes
  • No singleplayer campaign

Lot more details in the article.

Updated the OP with the really real video this time 🀣

It looks fine I guess. They took the wingsuit from Far Cry / Just Cause, the weather from Battlefield 4 / Just Cause 4.

I don't want to hate on it to bad, as I don't think it looks half bad. It's just not my cup of tea.

Yup. Don't care about teasers for these kinds of games honestly.

  • 10 specialists at a launch
  • Purchasable battle passes; four seasons and four new specialists per year
  • Post-launch maps will all be free
  • "Levolution" is back, baby. What we've seen: tornadoes lift players and vehicles into a vortex, a sandstorm blots out the sky, a space rocket launches (or maybe explodes)
  • Everyone has a wingsuit
  • Some vehicles will have spotter seats (a small detail but I like the sound of it)
  • No battle royale, but there are some mystery modes
  • No singleplayer campaign

Sounds promising.
