Battlefield V


Alpha has closed according to the below:

AMD has won this battle, and Nvidia is going to have to step up its Battlefield 5 optimisations if it wants to win the war. In our testing the RX 580 massively outperforms the supposedly equivalent GTX 1060, despite BF5 now being a bought and paid for GeForce game.

Another review about suppression and random bullet deviation.

A large part of this, I think, is down to the significant changes to Battlefield 1’s reliance on random bullet deviation. Battlefield 1 already featured some of the additional weight I’ve been hoping for from the series, but much of that was marred by the inclusion of random chance into your shooting. As the term random bullet deviation suggests, it was all about where bullets would end up placed: maybe one in five bullets fired would end up a little bit shy of where you were actually aiming. When under enemy fire your aim would get worse still with more bullet deviation and recoil, a key part of BF1’s suppression mechanic.


** RUMOUR **

According to Reddit user turntrout101, the in-game home menu for Battlefield 1 has an article confirming that Conquest, Domination, Frontlines, Team Deathmatch and Breakthrough will be available at Battlefield 5’s launch. Three yet-to-be-revealed modes are included but these will apparently be “brand new” to the series. Also, it seems that modes like Final Stand and Airborne will exist within Grand Operations only.


Bit off topic, but relates to previous discussion. I installed BF1 a week ago - but only just been able to have a blast.

BF1, as it is now, is nothing like BF3/4 of previous. I see that now. I see that there isn’t really a ‘normal’ mode and a ‘hardcore’ mode - there are lots of variables that you can define between the two.

I played on an official server, so everything was vanilla or normal. Didn’t know the map, was on a ship/sub dock.

Really really good fun. pace was fast, but not excessive. Played medic - slightly annoying that some people choose to insta-spawn… but also got some nice key revives.

Normal mode in BF1 feels utterly different to Normal in BF3. So I feel my point still stands regarding HC in that. But in BF1, Normal didn’t equal bulletsponges like I thought it would.

So, opinion changed. If BF V follows BF1’s style - it should be very very good. imho.


glad you’ve enjoyed it, we should squad sometime.


Always up for some BF1 action.

I believe the TTK for BF5 is slightly less bullets for a kill than in BF1


After reaching out to EA/DICE for comment, Battlefield UX designer Nathalie Ek has since said the following: “I just want to calm people down a little bit. The “auto spotting” in BFV was, unfortunately, a bug that made its way into the Alpha build. We don’t want people to “play the UI” which is why adding auto spotting would be like shooting ourselves in the foot. I’m sorry for the confusion this might have caused, but it’s great knowing the community notice these things and feedback on it! Keep it up! Thank you!”



In case you cant be arsed to read the post


Open BETA set to land in September:



So the closed alpha 2 is starting. Will do some gaming tonight and try to put a video up as well.


So many emotions reading this thread…


theses a glimps of royal mode in there

Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti is approaching

Hot damn their marketing team know how to edit a video! :smiley:

From that short glimpse, it looks like the ‘royale’ mode is a much smaller scale affair that crazy, wide open expanses of terrain.

This title and Anthem would probably make me get a new GPU.


Yeah its even got me thinking of buying back into the BF series…maybe…


Don’t. Wait for the beta. I absolutely hated both of the alphas. Not even going to bother uploading the video from the second one.


Battlefield V’s open beta will kick off on September 4 for those who pre-order and/or are subscribers of EA’s services, while everyone else will get access to it on September 6 on all platforms. The open beta will feature the new Rotterdam map for Conquest, as well as the Arctic Fjord map for both Conquest and Grand Operations. Pre-loading the open beta starts on September 3.


Just reading this has now been delayed by 4 weeks.

Looks like its delayed until 20th November


By this, I mean full game now the beta


Originally due on October 19, Battlefield 5 has been delayed by just under five weeks. EA’s latest war-torn shooter is now expected on November 20.
