Do yourself a favor and don't get your kid this game. It was *WAS somewhat complex but then the execs basically said, no we're not listening to feedback we're gonna go and do it the way we want to and it basically bombed.

Look at the reviews, it is steams 11th most negatively reviewed game OF ALL TIMES. Look at the subreddit for 2042 it's basically a shit show how bad of a game this company released for full price.

Pre-alpha gameplay, terrible game. NO VOIP, NO SCOREBOARD NO PLAYERS, Broken bugs and still more. Season 1 delayed 6 months, yes SIX. This game is not a homage to those that played and loved BF, they cancelled support for BF5 & BF2 for this steaming turd.
Why is it 50% off? Cause it just released an update to fix you know, problems that shouldn't of been there in the alpha. You're better off getting slapped in the face for the same price and you'll get more satisfaction than this un-optimized piece of trash.

16 guns at release, still 16 guns. BF4 had over 50+ guns by now in it's life cycle.
Bad hit regs
No aim assit fix on console
Mouse aim latency not fixed
Under map bugs existant
Specialists still exist
No legacy game mode
No updates for the portal maps, guns, vehicles
Nothing but bots
Vehicle controls are bad and have 0 physics
You can only find people if you crossplay and for console players, you will get dumped on by KB/M players.

You have to pay ME to play this game

Absolute WORST battlefield game I have ever played, and i've been playing since BF 1942 ...

There is nothing redeeming about this game at all. One of a very few game purchases in the last decade I fully regret paying full price for.

The only issue is that so many whiners whine about a brand new game and compare it to old games through rose colored glasses. The whiners got so loud that it prevented DICE from working on the game as planned to pacify the whiners with the `missing features`.
- No singleplayer: Never promised.
- Whined about BF1, V being less of a sandbox, whines that in 2042 you can strap explosives on drones.
- And absolutely insane nitpicks like no scoreboard, who cares, its a team centric game and not CoD, you win when your team wins. Just look overwatch, no scoreboard in team games, scoreboard in deathmatch.
- Other dumb entitlements

Tbh I played BF1 and BFV within the past year and BF4 is still by far the best of those three games on PC. The newer games have some nice additions, but the overall gameplay and weapon balance is nowhere near as good as BF4 (which I still play). I only play multiplayer, so I don't really care for a story mode. I remember I stopped playing these games on PS4 for the same reasons too. EA/Dice couldn't release a worthy successor to BF4. As mentioned above, BFV started off well but they kept tampering with the weapon balance with each update and it just made the game less fun to play. They also failed to release game modes that were promised because sales were low.

It has nothing to do with looking at the games through rose colored glasses. Dice games just got progressively worse with each new release. They want gamers to shell out $150 for a $10-20 game. It's like EA became the Monster or Beats by Dre of the gaming industry. High price tag for poor quality products.

Haha man I was waiting for this EA Simp to post. Is your full time job just looking for critical posts of BF2042 so you can call them whiners? How dare we criticize a game we paid $80 for? We should be happy we even got the privilege to pay for such a masterpiece!

Played this through EA play trial at launch - it should be F2P. Will not pay for this, might play a bit when it hits EA Play/Gamepass eventually.

Between this and Halo Infinite, it's been rough for new online shooters lmao

It's mostly bug fixes and quality of life. Plus they finally added VOIP 5 months after launch.

Don't believe the folks who think this game sucks. In my opinion, this game is pretty awesome. I don't care about single player missions on games like this or COD. It's all about online play for me. And this game has huge maps and pretty solid graphics and gameplay. I see the same bad review crap on many other titles..Almost seems like fixed reviews and people buy into it..

Wow they added VoIP !!! SIX MONTHS AFTER RELEASE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The game hit a huge milestone !!!!!!! Player base jumped from 1000 per day to 3000 !!!!!!

I'd have paid full price for a BF4 or BF3 reskin, but this mess here !! I'm not spending a penny on an overhyped shitehole.

This game is far from being fixed.

Really? You've just explained why we shouldn't buy this game. I've owned all the bf series and played thousands of hours in each but will skip this one. It seems I'm paying more for less. I also enjoy playing the single player storyline to see the story and get practice before going live.
I'll wait till its $10 to $20 but by then, there won't be many playing it.

He's actually not all that wrong at all. Playing near daily here (maybe every 2nd day -- I get the unlock goal each week usually easily).. since December. Last gen console has been near always packed with people. Only time i get bots are when it's after 2am mountain on a weekday.

Community's very active. VOiP is only going to enhance that. Met a guy tonight on first match to play with. He's on xbone and I'm on ps4 but you can add crossplat to friends list thru EA/game.

That is possible and if I did that that only means that I would have missed out on ~200 hours of quality gaming. Which is easily worth the asking price on release.

Its the same spiel, when BFV was released, people kept whining that they will play BF1/BF4 because they're so much better. And now BFV has the most players. People are weird.
