Battlefield V


#441

Ooooh fab.

Deffo up for a Friday sesh of watching “Connecting…” on my screen with you guys :slight_smile:


#442

Il hopefully be on from around 6ish. And not budging.

Download started after reloading origin and creating some more space on ssd. (ByeBye Hardline)


#443

I’ll try and get it loaded tonight. I’ll be on from 8ish.


#444

went released at 1pm today…or at least, it started running then, just watching the intro now before i have to pop out.


#445

Oooh if thats the case I will be on tonight :slight_smile:


#446

Eh release already? Cant see that il have it Downloaded tonight. Still had about 30Gig to go when i left this morning. And the wifes off no doubt watching netflix.


#447

yeah, bit odd, sure it said pre-load 8th and the release was the 9th at 1pm GMT, then when i went back to the window it said ‘Just released’.

First war story is paddling a canoe as a member of the newly formed SBS…


#448

new nvidia drivers came out for it too…


#449

got about 15Gb to go. Just home. It does say Playable, which I presume if for the single player. So may give that a bash this evening and MP tomorrow. Maybe MP is tomorrow release.


#450

Mine is now “Playable” but with no actual way of playing it.


#451

I might be getting a copy of this from someone, but I’m fucking off for the weekend on my todd to relax and catch a breather after the last 2 months of insanity with work.


#452

Correction. Right mouse click and use the play menu item in the context menu. I think they may have missed hiding that one?


#453

So its not even open to anything other than the origin premium?


#454

Seems that way. Think Origin basic get 10 hr trial from now/tomorrow as well.

:+1::ok_hand:

Have to say, early impression of the single player. Liked it. Liked it alot. Few bugs here and there. Like spontaneosly combusting at one point near a parked truck for no apparent reason. Played through the first act and enjoyed the stealthy mission, the openess of the next part of the mission and having a firefight to Long Way From Tipperary was pretty cool.

Looking forward to MP tomorrow night.


#456

One thing I have found in MP is that DX12 sucks. Played much smoother with it turned off.


#457

yup, BF1 was the same in that respect. I leave it and all the VFX stuff on for single player, and then in multiplayer i’ll have it reconfigured to something sensible; does anyone leave motion blue on for multiplayer, and if so why?

looks like headshots are a different colour hit marker by default now :slight_smile: They’ve learned something.


#458

Agree with scott too, the singleplayer has started really strongly, and it looks like there’s a lot more length to it than the BF1 war stories. Makes me look forward to the co-op.


#459

I really liked the BF1 WarStories. Which bodes well for the BFV ones then.

Co-op? Did not know that was going to be a thing. Nice. TBH, I really don’t know much about this release.


#460

if people are still playing it come december i might try and get it
