I have had all kinds of problems with the Origin loader, most of the time it quits unexpectedly

as such I now detest games with Origin

I for one (like majority) only play battlefield for the multiplayer, so if this feels and plays anything like BF4 I'll be thrilled. Haven't like any of the battlefield games since then tho so I'm skeptical.

Why is no one talking about the Beta that's going on right now? I think it's really good, but it needs some work. I don't care for the gun "tree" or plus sign? It resets your guns on every round.. I don't like how you can be an engineer and pick an assault loadout.. It's very confussing. I do like the game play. The guns feel good and responsive. I like the vehicles and they brought the Radio back in vehicles! I really like that feature in Vietnam. I modded my own music and gave it out to everyone I played with at the time so they would hear my music. I can remember flying over a ridge in a helicopter and playing, "Die MF Die"!.. lol

Who else is playing!

Not a huge fan so far it feels pretty unfinished for a game coming out in a month. I feel like it could use another 3-4 months of development time a month delay wasn't long enough imo.

At least on initial impression this is the weakest BF out of the last 4 even when comparing the last couple betas. Not a huge fan of V but this really doesn't offer anything that feels tangibly better other than the setting being modern.

I'm also not sure if they've just hit a wall with this engine or it's held back by consoles but LOD/asset streaming/overall texture detail/reflections feel super dated. I guess I'm just use to battlefield coming out and being at least semi cutting edge.

Performance overall is pretty bad on both my pc but I've read it's not very optimized for ryzen which is odd because BFV and BF1 were both smoother than on my 9900k based system in MP.

edit... Here are some screens 1440p with all settings maxed out.

I was playing this morning and a bit this afternoon. Performance-wise it runs sweet. 4k and all that jazz. My only issue is with driving the jeeps and such. the camera turns as I turn the wheels even though I have that disabled. Very annoying. Tanks are fine, APCs are fine but trucks do it. Drives me crazy!

That said, it runs great, looks beautiful, plays good but I do not like how any class can use any class kit. That's just strange. Why even have classes then?

I watched people stream the beta for a few minutes and even that left me completely speechless.
I had no idea DICE could fuck things up even more.
Completely out of place interface made out of neon green-blue colours and crappy menus, apparently made by colourblind monkey, everything looking like being being made with not a single thought given to PC players/controls - that alone is a definite no for me. Even if everything else was stellar, I would not buy the game because of this.
Oh wait, I forgot how the graphics has weird green to blue tone JUST LIKE THE FUCKING BF3, only this time everything is oversaturated as hell, and despite supposedly being powered by the latest and the most awesome tech, the game looks weirdly blurry.

People getting 30-50 fps on cards like 3080 and 6 to 8+ core CPUs is just incredibly ridiculous.
You'd think everything must work flawlessly since they are using in house made engine they've been working on for what, 10+ years, but it's only getting worse and worse. How do you fuck this up? What have they been doing for the past five years? It's the same bloody engine BF1 and BF5 uses (maybe with some minor crap added - I definitely didn't see any groundbreaking changes), how do you not get it working properly?
It's almost as if they didn't care. Like Bethesda. They know for a fact they will grab a billion dollars no matter how big pile of shit they release.

I think I will reinstall BF4. It was the last game in the series with good gameplay and great graphics that looked natural enough.
And I'll keep an eye out on World War 3, hopefully it will finally release in a decent state.

@Octopuss I have to agree.. I'm very disappointed in BF 2042.. Where are all of the guns? The attachments are trash and you have to reset your loadout every time.. It's crazy at how bad this is really. I expected way more than this beta. If this is the state the game is in then it will never release next month. It feels like a mobile game. haha There is so many things that do not work correctly.. You can't open the main map and the mini map is totally unusable. You can clearly see that the whole gun system will be heavily focused on buying upgrades. It feels like the whole core team at Dice have been replaced with EA members. I will be asking for a refund if it stays in this shape and just go back to BF4.

I mean right now in it's state the Desert Combat mod for 1942 was way better. I know a lot of people like BF4 but the best BF game for me was BF2 and BF 2042. Helicopters are way over powered in BF 2042. If you have lock-on missiles you still can't take them down.. You get 2 rockets.. They have way to many flares.. I had a dead lock on a Little bird that was right over my head and it just out ran my rocket. Where is all of the the anti air guns?

Also, why is the ammo and health circle so small.. lol You can't carry a crate and give ammo or health. What happen to the building aspect from BF5? Why can't we rebuild stuff? This is just my rant.. lol /rant

Not quire sure why the FPS is so low for some. I'm at 3440x1440 with maxed graphics settings and maintain around 90FPS as minimum with constant full load on GPU (97%+). The extra OC to 5.2GHz might really be helping with the 128 player processing. Gloating a little here, because no one should need 5GHz on 8-cores to get full GPU usage.

I know I don't like MP-only games, but in all fairness they aren't wrong when they claim they're "going back to their roots".
I thought EA "going back to their roots" meant they picked a small successful studio who made great interesting games, acquired it, then killed it off...

Since I didn't preorder I'll join the Beta tomorrow. But to those who've played so far, how do you distinguish enemies? Don't tell me DICE simplified gun recoil for spray-and-pray to find out enemy or sth.

There seemed to be plenty of recoil. Even short bursts at medium range are not accurate at all.

Yes. I found out accidentally by binding my Teamspeak key to SHIFT+V. At least single and full auto. Burst might be dependent on gun capability.

Ok so I played more last night. It's kind of growing on me.. but the weapon loadout reseting is madding!,, lol I did read last night that Dice has already said that this build is around 3 months old and a lot of stuff has been fixed. This makes me feel better. They did maintenance to it last night so hopefully today when I play it's better. This is the first BF game where I don't feel like it's better graphic wise. It's actually a step back. I do like the weather effects, that's probably my favorite part..

It feels like everybody is a bullet sponge.. lol I can unload a clip on a guy for them to only turn around and hit me with a couple rounds and I'm dead.. Most of the time it's the first bullet that take me out.. I would like to know if a console person or PC.

I agree the weather is the only thing that feels new/fresh, but the levolution stuff from 4 was better although it got pretty repetitive. I'm guessing this will suffer the same fate.

I haven't had any bullet registration issues people seem to die pretty fast for the most part. My buddy in Idaho isn't having those issues either, but my friend in Arizona is so who knows. We all have decent gigabit internet with relatively low ping 30ms or less.

I did turn everything to low and it helped but I think you're right and it's just lag. I'd like to know which server I'm playing on if it's East coast or west coast or where ever. lol The first day I didn't have any issues. It was almost like half of the users where bots.

I just want 2143.. A successor to 2142. This has promise but I want mechs and hovering ships and eject pods from ships and transports.. lol
Glad I'm not the only one. Still my favorite, just because the titan mode was so fun. I would love an updated version with more air vehicles and some more versions of the mechs.

Played few hours today. Apart from technical issues the feeling is it's classic Battlefield. The open terrain, man vs man vs machine total warfare. But coming from games with low TTK, gameplay feels boring af tbh. I know it's a beta and audio shouldn't be in its best quality, but guns felt like pea-shooter and sounds like one as well. Glad to see ADAD spam during gunfight is still feasible (sarcasm).
What the fuck did DICE do with the scoreboard. So complicated and devoid of info I actually want.
Enemy distinguish hasn't been a problem so far cause there's an option to turn enemy markers transparent. Guess the people complaining about it were filthy casuals that need red marker to spot enemies.
And BF2042 really needs skins. To atleast hide the ugly mugs of that german granny and canadian no-chin.

Overall, no pre-order for me. I have a suspicion some of the core issues plus technical issues will persist for a few months after release.

And oh yeah. Getting 70 fps range in ultra, high, medium regardless on my RTX 2060 + R5 3600 system. Will look forward to @Wizzard's excellent benchmark when the game comes out.

I am not sure how it is in BF4, maybe a coloured outline of the entire body? Anyway, one dot over the head of otherwise identical avatars? For real? I'm sure I wouldn't tell who is who.

Uhhh... skins won't work the way you think it does. German granny might be running around in a two-piece in some future update.

Played for a few hours, so here are my two cents.
The good:
1) Movement finally feels dynamic as opposed to the feel of a sack of potatoes on legs we've had ever since the Battlefields of old. A definite improvement!
2) I really like swapping scopes on the go, though I have to admit that CoD's gunsmith is still a way better idea and implementation.
3) Battlefield Moments® are there and when they happen they're just as fun as ever
4) And because there are now more people than before, sometimes really big gunfights between lots of people and vehicles happen, with a bigger scope than in previous installments.
5) Weather changes and Tornadoes are really cool
6) It runs perfectly fine at 1440p low on my overclocked 1660, so thanks for that.
7) Driving vehicles and cars is a bit more fun the before.

The bad:
1) The beta map - Orbital - is garbage. No other words for it. Too many pointless empty spaces, too many fights that go on like this: You see someone running at 150m, the person sees you, both of you empty your mags in vain and continue going elsewhere. Cover is non-existent in many places. If other maps are gonna be like this, I'm not going to play 2042. Battlefield lives and dies on good map design. If all else fails, they should just bring back Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman and other classics. No Caspian Border though please!
2) Because of map size sometimes the lulls between actual action get way too long.
3) UI is HORRENDOUS. The colors, the visibility, the overall design. Man, this is not good. Why is ammo count so small you nearly have to squint if you're playing on TV, who picked those colours, why is the minimap so bad, my goodness.
4) Did they conspire with Activision to make specialists same for both sides this year in both CoD and BF? Again, like in Vanguard, you're playing entirely off markers, which are small and their colors suck too. In some scenarios because of the light it's nearly impossible to tell enemies from teammates (Note - I'm partially colourblind and don't recognize many hues/shades).
5) Gunplay feels off. Maybe it's the weak sound, or the general lack of recoil (on every gun except the DMR, which makes the DMR completely pointless), or animations are substandard to what Infinity Ward manages these days... this just doesn't cut it anymore. Needs improvements.

Overall... it's, like, okay, I guess. Not gonna comment on balance and bugs because it's beta but if the final game gonna play like that, I'm not gonna be hooked for months for sure. But I sure hope it turns out better, because I missed modern-era-setting Battlefields. Of course, I wish they made an actual sci-fi sequel to 2142 but it seems like that's a no go after Infinite Warfare angering millions.
