Is Battlefield V Doomed?

At the hands of EA, many great game studios and franchises have been strangled to death. More than ever, the future of Battlefield is in serious jeopardy. While there is no shortage of controversy surrounding DICE’s latest entry in the well known shooter series Battlefield, EA Games has also been experiencing lower approval ratings than ever with the gaming community. Adding to the staleness of an aging genre that rarely hits its mark without issues, 2018 is a blockbuster year full of titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War, Fallout 76, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and staunch competition from Black Ops 4.

While most journalists and gamers may not have noticed, EA Games has been steadily sliding in a downward spiral as the lack of hype around their games produces a chilling effect on investor confidence.

RGN Podcast: Should Gamers Pre-Order Star Wars: Battlefront & Trust DICE / EA ?

RGN Podcast Aug 9 2013

After the big kick-off with Star Wars Celebration’s Battlefront Reveal and today’s Battlefront Dev Diary many gamers are split into two groups; those who are foaming at the mouth and throwing their money at the screen versus those who are calling foul, b.s., or much less friendly words towards their screens in disbelief and perhaps jaded but justified distrust. In the following RealGamerNewz Podcast we sit down and discuss whether or not gamers should think about pre-ordering the game at this point, which is what EA Games is suggesting everyone get ready to do right now. We also speak about all of the details thus far that are known about the game to be certain, which it turns out is not very much information at this time. DICE and their history developing games is discussed as well as the legacy of the Battlefront series.

In this Podcast we brought on RGN contributors who share differing views but are both determined to eventually play this game to see it for themselves, and we have a peaceful discussion which often breaks down into a debate showing both sides. One thing’s for sure, the pressure is definitely on for DICE and EA to surpass the partially complete, leaked, and cancelled Battlefront III that LucasArts was developing. Take a listen to the show below, do the research yourself, and make up your own mind. Thanks in advance for listening!

Battlefield 4 Isn’t Over Yet.. Final Stand was Just the tip of the Iceberg.. But are Gamers Ready??

Battlefield-4-Wallpaper

Yes the title does read correctly, EA is planning more for Battlefield 4. But what does that mean exactly? More guns, maps, camo, gadgets, paints, *gasp* KNIVES!! Well we don’t know specifically yet what all is to come. But EA has stated that Final Stand will not be the Final DLC for Battlefield 4. Now this game had a rough start I will admit. I was anxious for them to fix the servers, get the DLC out, and everything else upon launch especially fixing the Net-code. Hell I even got premium. At the start it didn’t seem worth it, Every time I got killed in 1 bullet w/o a head-shot, or every time I had to restart (A.K.A Re-Set up my classes, options, etc..)And even before they fixed it I knew I was playing a broken game as much as I denied it all, and I still played it too, but it was still broke.

maxresdefault

Many gave up on this game, and many stopped playing EA games all together which may be a bit far fetched but it had that impact, and I can kind of understand why. With technology ever increasing,  gamers and many more rely on companies to give us what we want and what is advertised, not broken Net-Code or glitchy servers. And sometimes that is what we get anyway. But it is from those high expectations from gamers that we truly see what a company is made of. It took time but EA did finally fix a lot of issues pertaining to BF4, Some issues still exist but it won’t ever be a perfect game I can tell you that right now, because where ever comes a fix for a game,  a new glitch/bug will arise to take it’s place.

But the real question is, Are gamers ready and willing to get this second batch of DLC? Or even more so, if they offer Premium, will gamers get it? Well after all gamers went through, expecting a great game and getting a bunch of Net-Code issues, I highly doubt some people will come back for the second batch and sure enough they have either already moved on to Battlefield Hard-Line or gave up entirely and went to play the new Call of Duty *Pukes* ugh, sorry, I’m umm, I’m sick. yeah I’m sick.  But either way a lot of gamers won’t be there for this second batch as much as gamers who stuck by the game will be. I know ill be ready for it. Will you? Check out funny moments from BF4 below and as they all say, see you on the battlefield.

Leak Turned Reality – Battlefield: Hardline Coming Soon – Dirty Cops, Drug Lords, Shoot Outs, and Blood Money

Battlefield Hardline RealGamerNewz

This week there has been a rumor turned reality of a new Battlefield game in the works code named “Omaha” also known by its new official name, Battlefield Hardline.

In celebration of this official confirmation, EA Games has decided to give away Battlefield 3: Standard Edition for PC free for all Origin members (hurry up) through their ‘On The House’ sale. This title is being developed by Visceral Games, the developer behind the amazing horror series Dead Space. Battlefield Hardline is going to be releasing in Fall 2014. The game will have an all new genre of the war on crime and the battle that wages on between criminals and the police.

Battlefield Hardline has had some footage and info leaked, such as: the classes which are The Mechanic, Enforcer, Operator, and the Professional. Also a new multiplayer map Downtown and the modes included are Bomb Squad, Carrier Assault, and Blood Money. I’m guessing that since a beta has also been announced that this will be the main map and these might be the games modes that will be available to play during that Beta. It looks like the Battlefield franchise will now be running on a rotating developer cycle like Call of Duty where Visceral will be on one year and DICE will be on the other year (for the anticipated Battlefield 5), and they will both have completely different experiences offered to the gamer. There is one difference here though, in that DICE will still be handling the multiplayer portion of the game while Visceral Games takes care of Single Player.

Heist, Rescue, Hotwire and Bloodmoney multiplayer modes are seen in the following video which was leaked ahead of the official announcement.

With this news of Battlefield: Hardline I believe that EA Games is trying to give a new experience, reminiscent of cops and robbers from when we were kids, but remain within the Battlefield universe since they already have a fan-base there. In a lot of ways, what has been seen so far for the game reveals a very thorough and detailed side-universe that takes place in Omaha with a Grand Theft Auto type of feel to it. There’s drugs, dirty cops, emotional scenes, and ties to the underworld from real life found everywhere in this game – along with your occasional cliche’ Hollywood film lines, being placed sarcastically to poke fun at Visceral Games (for example: “That’s xxx million dollars worth of drugs,” a character says to which another character replies, “What are you the drug Rain Man? Let’s go.”)

Battlefield Hardline will be releasing for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Microsoft’s Xbox One, and last-generation machines Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 and will also have support for Battlefield Premium which means there will be a good load of DLC that will follow after its release available to members of the paid subscription service originally offered for the BF games from DICE. After confirming this rumor to be true, EA Games also decided to update the world with information including when to expect a formal announcement. BF: Hardline will be in attendance at E3 2014 the industry trade event being covered on RGN this June (Stay Tuned for what has been called “The Super Bowl of Video Games”!)

Rent Your Own Battlefield 4 Servers On PlayStation 4 + Xbox ONE Soon

Battlefield Private Servers - PS4 XBox ONE

EA Games and DICE have made a stumble of a launch with Battlefield 4, but at the end of the day it is still a great multiplayer game when played online with the right people. Soon, those who are unhappy with their server-mates may soon have a solution. The ability to rent your own servers will soon grace the next-gen console versions of the BF4 war games title.

EA is also noted to have been considering past concerns about private servers becoming the sole support for a BF game on console and the damage this could potentially do to the experience of the multiplayer franchise long-term. Official Servers are still being planned to support “Quick Match” mode for example, and hopefully other measures will be taken to provide a good experience for gamers who don’t end up in a clan or cool private server with their buddies in time for EA to drop support for the online multiplayer resource servers of the game.
