Beta this weekend?

Postby SugarplumFaerie » Tue Oct 03, 2017 8:57 pm

Does anyone plan on taking a break from Destiny to try the Battlefront 2 beta? I got into Battlefront 1 real late but had a ton of fun with it.

i pre-ordered it... played the beta for one round.

i hope it's just because it's a beta and we don't have the full game.

The graphics are ok, i thought they would be great... there are only two controls in the Video settings, brightness and something else. i assume this game will play in 1080p/60.? Beta!

The game play is good, a lot of action is specific areas, as you are told to go to areas, then the craziness begins. I played one guy, i forget the name, but it was a fast firing gun, and once it reached the full limit, it would go into a sort of reload animation. there are also guns that are similar to shotguns. so the guns have definitely changed for the better. i also noticed the light glare from sniper types.

I haven't tried the vehicle space battle yet.

Scoreboard is tiny, only lists your kills and no ping meter or #.

Game is ok to Good. need to play some more, as more maps and modes become available thru Sunday.

Amazon doesn't have any physical copies for their pre-order. I'm guessing other companies are bitching about their 20% release day discount and I don't think the downloads carry that discount. So, I didn't pre-order it. I will do the open beta this weekend and then probably get my son the game for Christmas.

Biggest issue I had with the first game was not being able to see people. Something in the way the visuals were done, I had a real hard time picking guys out of the background. I might try it just to see if that has changed at all.

me too, i honestly think it's the Graphics. It just look, off... which makes it hard to see "distance"

I might try out this beta.

It kinda sucks that this game won't have a separate online co-op mode. I think that it would have been fun to group up with friends & fight off AI enemies "horde-mode" style.

This beta will open up to everyone Fri. Oct. 6 at 4:00AM Eastern (1:00AM Pacific).
It ends on Mon. Oct. 9 at 12:00PM Eastern (9:00AM Pacific).

The beta's file size on PS4 is 15.3GB according to this: https://www.vg247.com/2017/10/04/star-w ... -revealed/

I got to play one round this morning. Initially it feels like a Battlefront game. I hope to get more time to dive deeper.

I tried it and just can’t get into the gunplay. Destiny has ruined me.

I wish there was a bit more game play or maps on offer with the beta, but I'm quite enjoying it, even the starfighter mode. Looking forward to the approach of a "no Season pass" & possible free upcoming content, & a campaign mode at last! It's a no brainer if your a Star Wars nut like me :)
