Battlefield 5 is out of its honeymoon period since launch, and plenty of players have jumped in since the recent sale on Origin. If you’re completely new to Battlefield V and wondering which class suits you best? We’ve got you covered! For starters, for those new entirely to the franchise, here’s a little bit about the game. BFV is set in World War II, and offers large scale multiplayer modes featuring team-based matches. You’ll pick a class and be dropped into a squad of four including you, and depending on the game mode you’ll either capture and hold objectives, or destroy every last man and woman on the enemy team. Because majority of the multiplayer relies on squad matches, picking a class will be important to turn the tide of battle and suit your play style. Assault If you’re all about going in to battle all guns blazing with death and destruction, then Assault is your go to class. They are the experts of sowing chaos – perfect for … [Read more...] about Which Class Should You Play As On Battlefield V?
How much does Electronic Arts value $30? One week of play time. Hopefully those of you out in the netosphere didn’t put too much investment into your $60 Battlefield V purchase. In addition to having to wait over a week compared to the Origin Premier subscribers to get into the game, early adopters will need to come to peace with the knowledge that other people are getting a much better deal just seven days later. Target must be seeing the effects of EA’s “don’t like it, don’t buy it” campaign, because they are already discounting Battlefield V on Xbox and Playstation down to $30 just one week after the official launch date. Best Buy meanwhile has dropped its price down to $39.99 with Wal Mart undercutting them by 11 cents at $39.88. Incidentally the only major US store showing enough faith to keep the game at full price is Gamestop. Is Battlefield V floundering? Sources say…possibly. Eurogamer posted a story this week that Battlefield V … [Read more...] about [NM] Battlefield V Hit By Disappointment Bug, 50% Off One Week After Launch
Battlefield V is out, at least for EA Access subscribers and deluxe edition buyers, and reviews are already piling in. Eurogamer’s review stays in the middle, also noting that the game is launching in the glitchiest and most technically troubled state that DICE has been in since Battlefield 4. “Battlefield 5 is a spotty experience, beset by bugs and glitches that continually pull you out of it all. The new animations don’t seem fully baked, with legs prodding out at inhuman angles and players warping through the floor, while elsewhere quirks and server lag rear their heads. I had one particular game of Frontlines the other night that, thanks to a bug that prevented the round timer working properly, went on for well over 90 minutes, ending up in a strange armistice as players got tired of shooting each other and camped peacefully under a bridge together instead.” Eurogamer’s review received a comment by user TimidExplorer, who posted that Eurogamer’s … [Read more...] about [Not Massive] EA (Possibly) Caught Shilling Battlefield V On Eurogamer Review
If you haven’t heard the word, EA may be hopping off the lootbox train — at least for the time being. The mega-publisher took a huge publicity and community relations hit last year when it seriously botched its business model with Star Wars Battlefront II. You may remember it as the spark that lit an industry-wide discussion over lockboxes, strong backlash against the company, and government intervention. One thing is for certain: 2018 is not 2017, at least in this regard. With its upcoming Battlefield V, EA confirmed that it will not be inserting lockboxes or premium passes into the business model. “All players have access to the same maps and modes in Battlefield V,” developer DICE tweeted. “Keep your squad together, no matter the front.” So what does this mean for EA, the studios under its umbrella, and the future of monetization in video games? EA may just be biding its time until this whole furor blows over or it could be investigating new … [Read more...] about EA eschews lootboxes and premium passes with Battlefield V
