TBH I'm actually looking forward to this.

I have ditched COD WW2 and gone back to Black Ops 3, so I'm looking forward to this.

95% of the guys I know that play COD have never played the SP campaign so I don't think this will have an impact.

im actually interested in seeing what they will be doing with the BR mode.

I hope pricing is cheaper (am i being stupid to think that pricing will be cheaper for a non-SP included COD?)

I'm not sure the 'COD' crowd are the same crown that play PUPG and FORTNITE. Be interesting to see the take on it.

Very vague clip. Spaz thinks it will be popular with the cod crew but numbers will fall away as with all COD MP's. It may effect PUBG but Fortnite is so unique (3rd person and the building rubbish) Spaz don't think it will dethrone it.

Spaz is hoping the BFV Royale is done well. Raz mentioning the fort building, which may have something they can rip from Fortnite to make it interesting!

It's extremely PUBG. And they sued Fortnite for being a 'copy'. BLOPS 4 BR looks like a direct rip.

I've never played a BR game, but the cod trailer looked cool and got me interested. (I'm genuinely not trolling). Today I watched the first hour of of jackfrags streaming it and... obviously I'm missing something here but it looks dumb. Run around for a while picking things up then probably get picked off by a shitty camper and start the whole process again.
I think in the first 30 mins there was only 2 quick bits of action.

Someone sell me on why they like BR so I can get excited about trying it in cod and battlefield...

PUBG and Fortnite are  - sort of - owned by the same Korean company (major shareholder). They told both companies to pull their heads and the court action stopped.

All BR game are going to have the same formula no matter which version.

Same with Zombie / Dayz games - how many clones did that have?

It's weird @raz81 Fortnite is the dumbest, stupidest most annoying game ever and Spaz is shite at it. But Spaz keeps going back because it's fun. It's actually fun like the BFBC2 days of fun for Spaz. It's not in the league of BFBC2 but you do stupid shite that is hilarious. Spaz plays a bit with @mimix and with 2 cousins (1 who is a boss at it). It's just dumb shite fun!

Spaz is hoping the BFV BR isn't rubbish.

I was tempted to jump in and have a go but then i watched a streamer playing it and thought it looked like trash... Literally.

If i didn't know better I'd have thought they were playing ps3. Gfx looked really poor compared to other titles I'm playing.
No wonder people complain COD is the same crap every year.

Spaz's cousin got this on the weekend. He came to our house to update (56gb WTF is the point of a disc  :P) and I watched a bit when he was playing. Spaz was very surprised to see all the old maps rehashed and how dated it looks. It still looks like Blops 2 from PS3. The BR looks fun with a huge map and all the weapons and add-ons etc but this one isn't for Spaz.

I have not tried Zombies yet, but Blackout is pretty good.

I'm also loving the older maps. Some of my favourites are there.

Wow so much trolling potential here :)

I'd love to try the BR mode but not keen to pay full retail price for the privilege. Hopefully there's a demo or free weekend or something soon.

Good news @Slayer7744 once your disc arrives you'll have the honour of waiting even more for a 50gb patch lol

Well san trolling - it's not a 50gb patch - it's all the additional maps' etc that could not fit on the Bluray disc. The total game is over 100gb.

I tried the beta and enjoyed the little time i spent on it.

I picked it up last night from ebay which ill be trading in at ebgames and use my birthday 50% trade in bonus later this week. I hope they are still taking $60 for it when it arrives so I can get $90 in total and put it towards my RDR2 preorder.

FYI, i paid $58.9 on ebay with 5% the off code. Thegamesmen are still selling it for $62.

They are better off releasing in USB format in the future rather, than discs that can't fit the whole game

Wow. Talk about taking it to a new low.

Release a full price game.
With a season pass.

Wait a few weeks to take in the money and hype.

Release a lootbox / pay to win system

Not surprised. It will be interesting to see how the community reacts. IF EA had any idea they would ensure BF5 has nothing like this and flood the airwaves saying so. More likely they will try to implement BF2 version 2  :P

Can someone summarise the pay2win element (including which game modes it affects) as there is too much CoD terminology in that post for me to understand.

Spaz thinks the summarized version is 70% of drops are now in loot boxes and the grind to upgrade weapons is crazy so just pay for the upgrade. Also only some weapons are in the paid loot boxes and they are the best = P2WIN? This is the new trend. Release game raw and get the good reviews then do the update with all the crap. Will be interesting how RDR2 does it. And more interesting to see if BF5 does after the last EA f*&kstorm!

Are the new weapons going to be substantially better? Will grinding upgrades make much difference to gun performance? I dont like it either way, and sounds shady.

I dont know about bf5, but rdr2 online will be a cash cow after the first month. I dont like that so wont play it, but if people want to drop huge $ then at least it will help fund another quality single player game in 8ish years.

The timing to move between tiers in the article is Bill$hit. - 2 hrs  :facepalm:

I can do it in just over 30 minutes with a combination of Blackout and HC TDM.

Personally, I don't give 2 fat rats about all the tier BS with new skins, face paint, emotes and tags. I just jump on to shoot someone in the face  ;D, until BF5 come along so I can get @MajorSpazz  :troll:
