EA Play Live had some major…

  1. Hey y'all! Some quick updates:
    – Anytime you hear me say "jet" just mentally replace it to "aircraft"!
    – Looks like our boy at 3:09 is a previously revealed specialist Webster Mackay with a different visor on
    – Tracer darts actually reappeared in Battlefield Hardline (the forgotten middle child Battlefield game)

    Thank you for all your comments. Let me know what you are most excited about with Portal! Are you gonna play the regular all-out warfare modes in 2042, or just run around with crazy cool custom matches? 😀

  2. I want to know if we can set up the destruction to be like Bad Company 2's Destruction 2.0. It really made the game a ton of fun.

  3. 3:04 Honestly I do love hearing this. One thing that bugs me on Cod mw and Cold war is how we play as operators instead of soldiers. A Russian soldier fighting in the same faction as USA will kinda lost its charm, Cod did that and ended up mixing factions into 2 ones

  4. Hardcore ++ , A modern battlefield with more challenging hardcore mod aspects but not harsh as MILSIM, such as:
    – Stronger objective ticket bleed
    – Slow vehicles spawn
    – Longer flare/smoke reload
    – Stronger supression
    – Personel carriers
    – Stronger mounted 50 cal
    – No specialists

    Stronger objective ticket bleed to educate community that battlefield is about taking objectives and not about farming k/d.
    Slow vehicle spawn to punish bad decisions. In current battlefield games there is no repercussions for not using a vehicle that spawned.
    A longer flares/smoke reload, so the lock up weapons would be meaningful(fuck that rpg=skill nonsense).
    A stronger supression especially for Lmg's.
    More personel carriers such as humvee and armored versions such as strikers.
    A stronger 50 cal machine gun that can melt infantry (no more 50 cal doing less damage than rifle nonesense).
    No specialists, self explanatory.

  5. The guy who made this video hasn't played a lot of Battlefield has he. Calling an EOD bot a little killer mech robot.

  6. WOW, China Rising Map, from BF3, was that operation firestorm map the mountains?! Seige of Shanghai BF3. Seen BF bad company 2 Atacama Desert, BF 3 captain boarder, BadCO2 Val Paraiso, Seen 2142 gun ship. I thought I seen the tank but that wasn't it. Looked like one of the maps from BF5 the windmill. I think I seen wake ISLAND wasn't sure but these were all actual maps since 2006!!!!!!! maybe 1942 I couldn't its been a while!!!! Seen the F-35 from BF3 goodness I can't stop watching and and recognizing the maps from sooooooooo LONG AGO. Fuck you doing DICE haha? Tracer dart from bad company 3 in the intro. Like if this comment if you're a freaking VET?!

  7. Just FYI Joint Operations Typhoon Rising had 100 players in 2003…. pls stop pretending bf did something special they 19 years late to the game….

  8. Just a note about that visor on the unknown class with the rpg…it’s a Team Wendy ballistic visor made for the EXFIL helmet I think it’s rated NIJ level iiiA but that’s not to say battlefield won’t make it something other than armor

  9. Im pretty sure the helmet with the little visor is just a exfill with a face shield
    But it would be pretty cool if it was some sort of drone controller

  10. Guy who made this be like: Hmmm I need a clickbaity thumbnail… Better find a random soldier in the video and put some red circle on him.

  11. I played the BF 1, 2, and 2142 when I was 18 years old. I’m a thirsty years old dude and I rarely play video games now…
    It’s like a childhood dream to see this game.

    Players from my generation know all mods to get modern weapons in The very first COD and MoH.
    I can’t play FPS anymore but I m excited to see this game.

  12. Will these vanilla maps be included in the all out warfare mode. ? I would like to try breakthrough on all these maps. I love that game mode. Two teams of 64 pushing two objectives. Fire 🔥

  13. I mean I really didn't miss any of this in the trailer….. This sorta just came off as like a review or a trailer reaction not a "everything you missed". Feel like the point was lost with this video and I would've been better off just watching the trailer a couple more times

  14. 3:10 That's the guy from the reveal trailer in the shipping container place and I'm pretty sure that visor is just a ballistic face shield, looks similar to a Team Wendy Exfil helmet face shield… It would be cool if dice added some extra HUD stuff for it maybe as part of a specialist but its likely just a plain cosmetic face shield that does nothing :/

  15. Garbagefield, dont buy this at all, wait till its free then buy the hacks so you can be the best. Gamemarket must crash again because they dont care about the true player, they just want your money! When you do buy it expect, crashing, patching for hours, neverfinished scenes, jerk multiplayers, cheaters, and a whole lot more poor multiplayer experiences. Play bfv and see what your money will buy you with 2042…I recommend you buy something else other than this poor managed game, after a year or two they just left it be, only updated armory in bfv to get more money. Please I beg you buy something else, otherwise you're wasting your money.

  17. I want this game to succeed but I have this bad feeling its going to get ruined by hackers especially since they already got their hands on the source code for the game engine

  18. I mean don't get me wrong, it's nice and all…but if given the choice to wait and get full remasters of BFBC2 and/or BF3, and get the full content of each. I'd much rather wait than just get snippets of each. But that's just me.
