    No one gonna mention Mrs Captain hook? Wtf was all that about. 'lets jam as many women in the trailer as possible because we're all about equality'.

    Wouldn't be surprised if a character in the story is gender fluid and identifies as a spitfire...
    Someone's still making gender fluid jokes in 2018. How embarrassing.

    Love the people complaining over a lack of historical accuracy that could harm the authenticity of the story being told. Since when has DICE ever made a single player campaign worth a damn?

    yeah, I thought it was nice to have a trailer that actually does cover the fast pace of MP. “historically accurate” is like no mainstream FPS ever.

    That was a good trailer. Like they decided and realised that battlefield is a computer game and made it as gamey as possible. If that makes sense

    That trailer was like a toddler smashing toys together.

    So there's a woman in a trench coat with a robotic arm and blue face paint. And a dude that looks like a cross between Kratos and a biker with a tank top and a neck tattoo.

    Why?

    Because EA needs to make a buck. People have said no to Premium Passes and Lootboxes, so monetisation through customisation is all they could think of.

    So you'll be able to play as a black dude with a samurai top knot and a Dali moustache who does the dab and the moonwalk. Which is ok in Fortnite, but will probably look spectacularly out of place in a WW2 Battlefield game... and how many times did they say "immersive" in that reveal?

    Kind of hoping it is actually some kind of alternate history thing like Wolfenstein, but I doubt it.

    Ultimately gameplay is kind of course, but I can't remember the last time a reveal trailer killed all hype for me quite like this.

    The trailer was utterly mental and I loved it. Gone from 'not fussed' to 'yeah I'll play that' in 3 minutes

    It’s Battlefield with some incremental changes.

    They may be good, they may be bad - the animations are hard to say until you “feel” the changes.

    I like the sound of some of the Tides of War stuff and that there’s no premium pass to split the community.

    I like Battlefield so looking forward to playing it.

    I have to say I'm the same now. Just need to decide if I'm going console or PC for this.

    Can't say the trailer did anything for me at all... but the 20min gameplay video did. I'm in.

    A little less snipey would be nice. I will pick it up though, the no season pass bit pleases me no end.

    Reminds me of the Killzone trailer.

    I'm sure it'll be pretty great to be honest, but certainly gives me an excuse to pass on it at launch.

    I really love BF1: I bought the Season Pass and I've sank over 100 hours into it in the seventeen months since launch, which is fairly unheard of for me and makes it one of only four games in the last five years that I've invested so much time into (the others being Dark Souls, Elite: Dangerous and WoW).

    So for me personally, and only based off the cursory look we've had so far, it comes across as just too much of a conservative iteration on BF1 to elicit much enthusiasm at this stage.

    I also didn't particularly like the tone of that trailer. I think BF1 did a fairly decent job of conveying appropriate solemnity within the obviously over-the-top bombastic context of a modern-gen FPS, or at least as well as can be expected (certain ill-judged social media posts from DICE being the exception). But the buddy-buddy interaction and dialogue there was fucking cringe-worthy, and should have been sense-checked with a functioning adult before going to press.

    I honestly would have thought that was gameplay from BF1 if I didn't know. The talk of BC2 destruction is the only thing that's got me kind of interested.

    I love how colorful and bright it looks. At first I thought it was some guerrilla warfare setting a bit like home-front. Why does one of the guy's have a Katana on his back? I really like the look of it although I have found Battlefield 1 hit and miss.

    Wonder what the cash cow this time around is? There's no season pass and no loot boxes (both officially confirmed).

    So that means either a £100 price tag or... energy bar! It's going to be an energy bar, isn't it? "Wait 3 hours for ammo to regenerate or buy 300 crystals now!".

    It is BF1 gameplay, He's just talking about BF5 with BF1 gameplay in the background.

    They did in some armies. Russian, at least. In small numbers though, and specific tasks.

    @Rogueywon Don't worry Roguey, you'll be able to purchase your much-coveted hipster beard. We all know how you love them!

    Really cool to see diet-Kratos with the totes sick ink in there as well! Will hopefully educate younger generations on just how fucking cool WW2 really was.

    Revisionist history says they did. With blue facepaint and robotic arms.

    @Dgzter

    Hmmmmm, I got my eye on you. It's alright I'm just getting a bit annoyed with the large amount of people on other sites complaining that there's a woman and black guy in the trailer which makes it not historically accurate, because obviously bf is a simulation and not a backdrop for you to do crazy shit.
