Not seen much wrong with it except some textures not loading and that was only the once. My main gripe with the 2042 conquest stuff is that 128 players is too much even on some of those massive maps - the footsteps seem off to me and you just get destroyed from all angles. Maybe I am just bad at it. Portal is more fun and a nice nostalgia trip for me. I've only played it for around 6 hours or so of my 10 hour trial.

I'm beginning to think that I have some kind of curse when it comes to this game.

Every time I literally run somewhere for what feels like an age without seeing a soul only to be blown up by an enemy chopper I didn't hear coming the second I spot an enemy and line them up in my sights.

I've switched cross play off and faring a little better now. Its annoying it's not a setting within BF though. Servers were a bit laggy at times last night but not seen some of the issues from earlier in the week. Can't imagine this weekend will be very playable.

It was OK this morning when I jumped on (for 3 hours) though connecting to a game was taking longer as the morning went on. Tonight will be interesting though.

Yeah I turned off crossplay last night on ps and a lot better. I think xbox players have been shafted by microsoft with games like battlefield and warzone not being able to easy turn off crossplay like ps.

Big pile of poop so it is. Can never get my head round some of the decisions made with this series. All the progress they make in the previous title then release a new game missing all the improvements and features from the last title. As it stands the movement, gunplay and mechanics are just atrocious compared to BFV. Maps feel empty and completely lack any atmosphere, something BF1 had in spades. Specialist system does not belong in a BF game. No scoreboard, squad selection screen, server browser no persistent lobbies. Whole things a joke.

Maybe I am easily pleased. Sure some things are missing but overall I am really enjoying it. I didn’t like V at all. Gun play feels better to me especially the SMGs. Glad I bought it and I’m looking forward to seeing what they bring down the road.

Really annoying bug in this where you just get constantly dumped back to the main screen after trying to enter matches (happens mainly on XSX) the only way to get it to join is to go back to dash quit the game then load in works first time after that.

Is that due to Quick Resume?

As much as I like the game the hit detection seems way off in some matches you can unload a full clip into someone and not even scratch them only for them to turn around and one shot you dead.

Finally unlocked Paik. Nice wallhack! Using the sensor grenades as well you get so many assists. Fun but I still think 128 players is too many. Played a lot over the weekend and really getting to grips with it now.

I really fancy picking this up, but I've been busy playing FC6, I've also got AC: Valhalla waiting to be played, but I don't want to start that until I'm done with FC6.
I've not missed a BF for years and always really enjoyed them and I could drop in and out of it whilst playing a more story based game at the same time.

How is it generally? Worth picking up or waiting for some bug fixes?

There are still some glitches. Latest patch seemed to fix some things and create some others but overall It’s pretty stable though even with 128 players. Breakthrough is still where it’s at for me. I am loving being able just jump on for a few hours of manic fun. Suits me perfectly as something different for when I don’t fancy playing a single player game for a while.

I'm about 6 hours into my EA Trial and I'm really enjoying it. Patch 2 has made a big difference to the game. I'm saving the remaining 4 hours of the trial for update 3 which I think drops this week. I reckon I'll end up picking this up for Christmas though and I'm looking forward to seeing where the game goes over the next few months. One thing I've really enjoyed has been playing the 1942 maps. I spent hours in that game with a clan when I was much younger and I remember both El Alamein and the Battle of the Bulge maps really well so I get a big nostalgia kick when I'm on those maps.

So me and my mate tried to play this the other night using EA trial, both on xbox series x. We couldn't invite each other into a party, in the social screen all the options were set at 0 (xbox friends etc). Did the usual reboot etc, tried invite via party but that forces you to the MS store. Anyone had this issue?

Anyone noticed that some games start with a huge amount of AI sometimes. The one just now 3 people got in my MAV, all AI. So I checked the squad and players section and at least 30% were AI.
