    It's the same as any shooter, really. It certainly feels more repetitive in that item locations rarely change and that there's only 1 map, but the games I've had have all played out rather differently. I do think they're a little on the short side though.

    right looking at buying this for PS4 can you get it digital?

    The only ones I can see are classed as ADD ON's?

    If you guys could point me in the direction of the full game I would appreciate it.

    BTW just want to play the battle royale do you need to pay for the game for that?

    You didn't on xbone, Battle Royale was a separate download there, so I assume PS4 will be the same.

    Yes, Battle Royale is a free download on PS4 that doesn't require you to purchase the main game. They're already trying to make up for this by charging silly money for pointless costumes/skins, BUT then I guess they have to make their money from somewhere - I've seen a few players wearing them so obviously people are happy to pay out!

    I still sway back and forth between loving and hating this game - mainly because the combat can feel a bit spongy (and mainly because I am rubbish at shooting anything that is further away than two metres). I've managed to finish first four times, but I've had about a dozen or so where I've finished second and SHOULD have blinkin' won...instead, I cowered in a bush for ten minutes before being sniped from a guy who had built a house in the clouds.

    Yep - it's a fairly hefty download, but it's definitely worth it. For FREE you can't really complain...unless you read my post above where I was complaining.

    Tried the battle royale on Xbox one and itís frustrating, not so good graphics, a little laggy, kinda rubbish but a lot of fun and I canít stop playing it 😁 That was solo so probably even better with friends.

    I tried it a couple of weekends with 2 of us in the same room playing duo's, its alright but lagged a bit for first weekend and seemed ok 2nd time. Its all a bit arcadey and had a laugh but the controls are way to floaty(?) and hard to even target people while moving the camera around.

    We did join a squad game but this happened and havent turned it back on since http://xboxclips.com/Skull+Bugery/f66d12d7-fc42-4278-ac2f-2067894c2a70

    I find that it lags pretty badly too - I will sneak within inches of somebody with a shotgun only for them to glitch a few inches to the side leaving me to blast nada. It's okay for a free game but I'd be rather cheesed if I had paid for it.

    @PrivateFloyd

    I'm playing it now and again. Will be on in a couple of hours if you fancy teaming up. Not sure if I have Comms at the mo. In Romania at the mo and haven't tried my headphones on the controller yet.

    PSN name is the same as eg. Think I've got yours but can't remember.

    Would be good to team up with someone ��

    How does the world's most popular game right now, apparently, have only 4 forum pages? Does anyone actually play this?

    I watched about a minute of footage and it looks barely distinguishable from Agents of Mayhem, not a good look.

    Your first mistake is assuming anyone here actually plays games any more.
  • Deleted user 27 February 2018 11:09:26
    Good point. I myself am waiting for someone to update the Match.com thread.

    Our lad plays it religiously, so we may be the wrong age demographic for this.

    I've played a little of the full game and battle royale, and it's all right, but not likely to make me play it instead of PUBG. I found the building a bit finicky, but I'm sure with loads of practice it becomes much easier.

    I played a bit of it before pubg came to the xbox but I havent touched it since.

    My eldest and his mates are all over this game like a rash. They're 10 and he reckons the majority of users are probably schoolkids.

    Obviously being free its going to attract a young crowd but I think Epic are doing a great job in regards to fixes/improvements and updates.

    It feels as though the money being earnt from cosmetic purchases are being fed back into the game at least.

    I think i prefer duos to solo as my building is poor.I often get top 10 but beyond that is when strategic/quick building is most useful.
  • Deleted user 27 February 2018 13:22:49
    It's an amazing game. Me and a group of mates are loving it.†

    We all left school many many moons ago.

    Got this on the PS4 after my 10 year old nagged me (his first 'proper' online shooter).
    It's a lot more bearable once you work out how to turn voice comms off.

    My 10 year old wants to get in this, which I'm fine with, but want to disable chat/mute other players etc.

    Is it fairly simple to do and is it still playable without coordinating with other players? He'll be on PC.

    I play this every day. I too am astonished it's got so little feedback in these forums!

    It's a great game. One of the best MP team games I've ever played. Me and a friend usually play Duo and do quite well. The new 60fps is a excellent.

    @sport can't help on PC- this was PS4. You can still coordinate w/out comms- animations and emotes in game can be quite useful.

    Just downloaded this last night as I was looking for something to quickly jump in and out of and it seems alright.

    As mentioned above, the shooting/targetting seems wavy and I've yet to get a hang of the building but other than that...
