    The possibilities are endless, it’s almost like a few games rolled into one! Can’t wait for this.

    Exactly that! I love what Portal could mean - a "forever" game, a fan-driven game within BF.

    Man, the only thing that I'm worried about, is not the game itself, but the popularity of it in my region. In UK / US / EU you'll have a large playerbase for this to live on for a long time, especially with Portal. In Aus though we're so far geographically from everywhere that I worry I'll miss out in say, 1-2 years' time.

    loving the idea behind portal. lets see if they execute on this vision once it's released. Wonder if they will integrate the maps from BF4, BF1, and BFV in the future. I love the idea of Twisted Steel with 2042 tanks :)

    How's best to pre order this on Xbox ?

    It's cheaper with ea play.

    Gold edition £89.99 or £80.99 with ea play.

    Is there a cheap way to get ea play ?

    Do you have Game Pass?

    If not get a £1 trial, then buy the game

    So is it on Game Pass given EA play is now part of it? I assumed it would come eventually, just not on launch...

    Not at launch, but you get a discount on all EA games via EA Play/Game Pass.

    Cool ta. How much is it out of interest? It doesn't show on the game pass app so assume I need to log onto xbox (Which I can't right now).

    It won’t be on the game pas app until it’s available on game pass.

    Assuming it's the same pricing on Xbox as PS5, you get a 10% discount on the three versions which are, IIRC, £70, £90 and £110.

    No official dates posted yet that's I've seen.

    But considering the full game comes out on 15th October early access on Xbox the beta has to land really soon.

    I guess next 2 weeks middle of September.

    I best get the Gold edition pre ordered

    I'm still a bit undecided if I should preorder, but it will be good to play a bit of the beta next month, It's expensive but I know It will be worth it in the long run. I didn't think BFV was that good, but still put in a lot of hours.

    I put a lot of hours into it myself but it always felt more like COD than a proper BF title. I just hate the way vehicle's spawn in the pervious 2 games.

    oh nice, I'm going to get the regular I think, that's already pricey enough.

    They'll definitely let you buy the Year 1 pass separately, yes.
