    Thought this was pretty good actually but then cod always starts off well, until Everyone pushes past my ability ceiling in about a week and it becomes frustrating.

    So, this goes fully open this weekend, no pre-orders required?

    Might give it a whirl, though I find Battlefield too fast these days...

    No, it's an MP beta. No SP or co-op.

    It's cross play as well. Was in a lobby with Xbox and pc, everyone was civil, no one was talking. Got round to making 17 kills, felt good. It's interesting though, maybe one day they'll allow us to friend one another across platforms.

    You can cant you, the full game will get you to have a cod account, I assumed that would come with friends etc.

    You use the Activision account to friend across platform, yeah. I don't think you can talk though, as the systems just don't work that way.

    Can get around that with discord I guess?

    Edit: oh no ps4 version yet, so you would have to use a phone.

    So Ground War it literally Battlefield. 64 players, 5 flags, squad spawn, vehicles... Only thing its missing is spotting but even BFV doesn't do that the same anymore.

    It's really good, and I hope they provide lots of maps for it.

    Fun fact, an old colleague of mine from DICE (ME Catalyst though, not BF) left us to go to IW and Ground War is his baby.

    So can you actually play with your friends on separate platforms?

    I played some ground war, was interesting overall although I was twice on a potato team who just stuck to one flag and didn't move forward and the enemy team just camped their positions as snipers. So yeah that was fun. Not sure about having kill streaks in such a mode though, thought that was a bit bullshit.

    @ChiefGB yes as long as they use the same input device. Chat however will be trickier due to ps4 not having discord.

    Apparently the game does handle chat across platforms. Won't do party chat obviously,

    God some of these people must be constantly chugging energy drinks for how quick they react.

    Ground War was such a great mode but yeah I did see a lot of non movement from some players and snipers always in their spot. I really enjoyed driving tanks and flying choppers across the map killing shit.

    I enjoyed the beta overall. Although I definitely felt the rage that comes with playing a game that is very sweaty and everyone jumps like a cunt while trying to shoot you.

    Didnt see much jumping in ths 2v2 mode, or was pretty tactical as a whole.

    No, but I don't see the general mass of players playing 2v2 either. It should get spared a lot of the shit.

    Yeah 2vs2 was free of the shit, the core modes such as Domination were full of people sliding and jump shooting. Amazingly I don't think I ever witnessed a melee kill. Ground war is great in concept but the amount of camping and ability to use killstreaks to box in people once you've pushed them back means some tweaking is required.

    I got killed by melee once!

    It'll get tweaked. There will also be more than one map. There are also more killstreaks, weapons and gadgets that are all locked away in the Beta. It;s a good taster but I think it'll be a very different experience in a few months.

    Indeed. The biggest thing is how much Activision is going to milk the game with the lootboxes, the same lootboxes that had a detrimental effect on BO4.

    So that 1 year ps4 exclusivity for the survival mode in spec ops has turned me right off.

    It's pretty shitty considering it lasts until the next cod game. Its Activision though so what do you expect.

    Can and can't blame Sony at the same time too though.

    I feel like it's no point having a 1 year exclusivity should make it permanent because by that time everyone will move on to the next CoD already.

    Itís no different to stuff like Dead Rising 4, Astroneer, etc, on Xbox. 1 year exclusivity seems to be pretty normal normal, more on MSís side though.

    And itís only the survival mode, not the full Spec Ops. It wasnít much of a big deal back in MW3, it wasnít all that popular based on how often itís talked about.
