Battlefield V MEGATHREAD

Hey everybody.  So in an attempt to consolidate the latest reveal info, news, and trailers for Battlefield V I've created this topic to discuss anything and everything Battlefield V during this pre-release period. 

Open beta coming September 6, details here:

Now that the reveal trailer has dropped, we finally have some info on how the game will look and play. Check it out below if you haven't seen it yet (Sorry, can't edit the size of the videos) -

The first thing I, along with many others noticed was a significant change in the color palette. The bright, colorful trailer we just watched is a stark contrast from the grey and gloomy colors we saw in BF1 (which I think fit the game really well). While this is obviously a heavily scripted reveal, I think we'll still be getting that same gritty Battlefield gameplay that we've come to know. The trailer does show a couple of new features like fortification building, how teammates call for medics, some sort of sliding action, and a tank steamrolling through a building. But overall, it was a flashy trailer to try to get players hyped about the game and there are a lot of mixed feelings out there about the direction DICE chose for it.

Overall and in my opinion, I really don't think the trailer does the game justice. The confirmed gameplay features listed in the jackfrags video below get me really excited for the game! While the reveal was flashy and full of Michael Bay style eye candy, it really didn't get me too excited. If you're doubtful, I would highly recommend you guys check out this video.

This is BFV Trailer, lots of gameplay and a bit more info on what to expect in the game.

 

 

Stick around here and feel free to discuss as I'll be updating this front page as we get closer to October November and more trailers are released!

Okay I'm liking the feature changes to the squad mechanics, let's see in time how much of a difference it makes. I still felt like BF1 could be played solo.

yeah they seem to be taking from more hardcore games like squad and rising storm to put emphasis on squads and squad leaders.

Which is good....but there still needs to be a commander added....more of a BF2 commander than a BF4 commander--the Squad community has commandeered on despite the lack of a commander (having a SL who's dedicating all or a good chunk of his/her time to coordinating the different squads of a team on a server), but BFV would do well to have a dedicated commander post.

Silly me never played BF4 so I don't how they'd do that in a BF game :P

Yeah, I think they realized they need to go back to their roots like BF2 and further separate CoD from BF again. BF2 is where project reality is based on and then squad and post scriptum are based on PR too.

I withdraw my negative comments. If Dutch plays with me, I'm sure I'll love this game. 

He does have that effect on people.

Sweet links, @BirdDog2043!

Airborne mode seems like it'll play or replace Rush mode.

 

 I'm pretty excited for the changes coming. I'm wondering how the fortifications and reenforcements options will change the game.
