EA isn't saying much else but we'll most likely see it in action during E3 2018 after the announcement trailer.

Though honestly, I'm surprised they didn't just wait until then.

after all the lootbox bull plus the kit shortcuts AND the change to not using the mouse wheel to scroll through your kit items i kinda hope the series dies off tbh because it will NEVER return to how it was in the early games of the series. players getting the CDK and map dev kit, mods like forgotten hope and FHSW made BF1942 a game i still play to this day. It boggles my mind how EA wont let players mod the game saying that "players could not handle modding frostbite". TBH they are scared players will make way better content for free that they cant somehow sell.

Unless they do a full 1942 remake using frostbite with no registering an account and giving out THE FULL CDK it will be a failure in my eyes if they return to ww2.

Yep, just sounds like a lame excuse IMO. Whenever a game developer has said "I expect players won't be able to do ______", it never takes long for a player to prove them wrong :lol: .

Anyway, any ideas why they announced this now, instead of at E3? I guess maybe they just wanted to build up hype :P .

I am very interested to see the reveal. Obviously its not going to me more then a teaser and there has been lots of rumors and leaked information from this source or that source but its all been very vague. I will say that i am not feeling optimistic about the next Battlefield game but I am interested.

Well, we'll find out in a week at least something about the game at least.

tbh after the fiasco with EA battlefront 2 and them basically abandoning it due to the heavy slap from politicians now stepping in to try and stop the loot box spam in AAA titles. TBH i dont think ill get the next BF because it will probably be just as predatory as it has been for a while now. I dont see them doing anything but trying to suck the joy out of games i once loved.

Game releases October 2018, no gameplay until E3 2018.

My favorite remark from their livestream commentary:
"21:08 - We've been going 10 minutes and we still haven't seen a second of gameplay footage."
:P

seen it and am ignoring it even harder than before, a churchill could barely keep up with running infantry let alone going as fast as that "trailer" showed. it just looks so fake, and the AT rifle muzzle break on a MG-42? yeahhhh no thanks this is already a DOA before it even hits the general public. EA strikes again.
