Pfft pre-order... would rather buy it day 1 for 10% extra :P

I will be waiting to see what people think from any beta before I look at buying

Yeah, playing the beta first and then mid week of the early access on launch week before I consider buying it. #Don'tForgetBF4Launch

Delayed until Nov 19th.

 

BF4 launch vibes are starting to feel real now, tbh. This is now 110% in my mind buy after the release is out and people report back it isn't broken.

And this is why I don't want to pre-order until a Beta is done and it is actually good

Even then, I don't know if I will have the time to play it

I'll keep my thoughts to when I play it and then I'll flat out say if it's garbage or not then haha

Brutal honestly from you?! I wouldn't expect anything less.

Agree. At least this creates a month buffer between beta and release now instead of the ebte being early access for pre-order. But i worry what could make the game get delayed so late that they didn't fix in the years leading up to it. 

Rams and i have been giving bf4 a spin the last couple of nights and it felt instantly familiar so maybe we just go back to that?

Battlefield 2042 will be using the same anticheat as Apex and Fortnite, which iirc is Easy Anticheat. So we'll see how that goes i guess. Beta dates have been released too. 6 - 9th of October. So for us aussies, Thursday to Sunday based on timezones. Preload is available Wednesday.

Just in case anyone missed this on discord (also you can do it directly from Origin)

    open beta for 2 day, if you pre-order you get an earlier 2 days as well
  2. If you go to the Steam shop page for it, there is an option there to request beta access which will then let you pre-download the client

I get that most people ain't got time for half an hour of a man talking, but this perfectly sums up how i felt about the beta.

I really don't understand how they can do this to themselves each and every time. I might not buy upon release, but try that EA Game Pass thing first and see what it looks like.

EA Play?
Depending which version of EA Play it comes out on, it might be included with the Microsoft Gamepass... 

 

I enjoyed the Beta, there were issues, but to me nothing game breaking or anything that destroyed my fun. 
I am not playing competitively though, and I suck at shooters, so for me it was about fun, and I had that

I have been able to verify that statement for 15 years now.

 

I might see about the Microsoft option, as that would give me AoEIV as well.

 

Of course, I have also Googled boxed copies for both games...

Do they still do boxed copies of PC games? The last proper boxed game I got was GTA 5 in 2015

Game pass is pretty ridiculous for value. So many games, a lot of them fairly new or even day one including ea play and bethesda games.

Ended up finding time to watch this & yeah mostly agree with what he says.

 

Overall took a bite out of it and it tasted sweet but at the end I was left with a bad after taste. I kind of enjoyed it but I wasn't up late on Saturday night during lockdown playing it. Only did 4 hours in the end which is very low for someone who used to be a huge fan.

 

Oh well I'll just wait till release and if enough clan members are playing I'll reluctantly drop $90 on it. 

 

But after saying all that they do have the portal thing soooo... maybe if they have some good servers running like 6+ members in a squad and you don't have identical specialist running around I could see me self getting back into it. Hopefully it is how they advertised it.

Well I'm certainly interested. Is this their take on battle royale?

 

I remember when BF5 came out I thought their BR mode might take off - but it didn't seem to do much and I found Warzone had too much happening with weapons etc. I'm worried this could be the same - BR modes should be pretty simple and straightforward.

I think the biggest problem will be entry cost. 
Fortnite is free, and PUBG is cheap. 
$90 to play a BR seems a bit excessive. 

I know it has hte other mode, but BR's have always been on the lower to no cost end

The premise for the mode sounds okay, almost like Tarkov in a way.

 

As for the $90 for a gamw nowadays that will most certainly have season passes, that's pretty steep. Do we know how long it will be on EA Play for?

Nothing stated for EA Play as far as I can find so far. 
Assume it will be on EA Play Plus for a few months and then move to EA Play at a later date. 

 

In saying that $90 is steep, it is currently $62 on Amazon for an Origin code
