Thanks for the images.

JackFrags made a great video talking about all the changes to Battlefield 5's Multiplayer.
It will be a much more tactical game focused on team play, which from the comments sounds like a dream Battlefield game for many fans of the franchise.

PS. Game2k, there's a 2160p version of the Battlefield 5 (Reveal Trailer) on Battlefield's YouTube channel. I know you guys hate YouTube quality - I do too, but this video's quality is around 25000 bitrate at 2160p resolution. Not the ideal for 4K, but still much better than YouTube's 1080p and around the same bitrate of many 1080p videos here on Gamersyde, so might be worth checking out as the quality is very good imho.

Wasn't really impressed with the reveal video. A lot of bombast, but that is par for the course. Visually it looks great, as Dice games do.

I'll have to peep the Jackfrags video. They said the same thing about team play with the last one too, but I never really noticed anything radical

Not sure about the last one, but in BF5, you automatically spawn in a squad/team, there's an option to start solo, but by default you're in a squad.

Some of the reasons why JackFrags says BF5 will be much more focused on team play is because of the changes to many core features like not regaining full health, starting with less ammo, taking more time to revive downed team mates, etc.

An example is the Medic class, since now you can't regain full health, you will be relying on a medic more than in previous games. Same for the health regen mechanic, that now only heals till a certain amount based on bars - i.e. if you take damage and go to 20 Health, it will only regen health till 33 Health (1 bar), if you want to regain full health, you will need a medic.

The JackFrags video covers much more details, there's a lot of info in it, which is why it's 25 minutes long. I also recommend the EuroGamer and Kotaku articles, I've read both and they go into even more details of some things JackFrags just mentioned.

I don't play BF multiplayer, so my opinion is most likely irrelevant, but I really liked the trailer - even though it's very "CoDified" - and wanted to learn more about the game.

For insight from people who actually play BF multiplayer for years, I recommend to read the comments in the JackFrags video or go to the Battlefield Reddit and see what they think about BF5 so far.

The squad thing is the same old yeah.

The ammo health thing is kinda nice. It'd be interesting if they went full Overwatch and made certain classes excel against specific enemy types.
This sounds like just a little bit of that though.

Overwatch? Really? And there are definitely new squad mechanics.. squad revives are a pretty big change. A lot of those systems actually sound like they'll slow the game down, but I suspect I'll get my revive chains back in BC3.

Yeah because you nearly can't solo at all in that game. A poor squad will cost you the round pretty much every time.

I didn't say it was the same, just offering the extreme

Well squad gameplay has (almost) always been a part of Battlefield and there's always been that kit dynamic where one class has all the anti-vehicle shit, etc. I don't really see a strong relationship there. Now Call of Duty.. straight up has heroes.

You could argue that squad revives remove something from the medic class, but the fact that they're redoing the health system should push back against that a lot. Those changes mean a lot to me, in both good and bad ways. I like assault medics in BF2/3/4 a lot.. so in a sense I'm a little sad that they're not going back to that kind of medic, but I also think the changes could have a positive impact on the medic role. Health regen (thanks Bad Company!) has had a really bad influence on the kit since BC2.

And removing area of effect hp and ammo is a huge change that I'm not 100% on board with either, but could have a positive influence on the pace of the game. It's not any of those other games after all. Hopefully it does its thing in a way that makes sense to BF5.

    GriftGFX I'm super skeptical of COD BR too though.. there are so many hurdles there. COD is not designed as a large scale shooter. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I think the hero shooter stuff is its weakest point. They should just forget about it. (3 Hours ago)
