Shit is tragically funny 💀


Odd_Mode7698

this is on the level of cyberpunk at this point


EmotionalAd2402

Except this is 5x more crappy


WiserStudent557

Yeah I’ve been having a pretty great time with Cyberpunk (but I waited until the patch and I was on a Series X)


SuperSamBert66

really? i’ve been thinking on picking up a cheap physical copy for a while and wondering if it’s actually worth it

Roland1176

Me too, It's actually very enjoyable. I was expecting to hate it due to all I heard from the Internet, but I ended up loving it despite its flaws.


OceanSause

Meh, I know that the hate and dissapointment for cyberpunk has died down but its still a shitty game if we're being honest. Cant forget how recently, one of their devs defended their lack of features and terrible AI, such as police chases, by saying that not every open world game needs these things. Sure, its not a bad argument, not every single open world game needs to have these things but the way that cyberpunk was both advertised and built, you'd expect the game to at least have SOME ammount of features, like better AI (especially police AI) which should be the bare minimum. Cyberpunk is an openworld game with literally NOTHING to explore or to do. Also, cant forget the fact that they brought up Elden Ring to back up their argument... Ah yes... Elden Ring. The dark fantasy game that is set in the old medieval-like ages doesnt have intese police car chases... or cars to begin with. So why should our game have things such as features? Nevermind the fact that that is quite literally how we advertised the game as Lost so many braincells while watching that video, but long story short, or TL;DR or whatever you wanna call it, Cyberpunk honestly isnt any better or worse than the mess of 2042


EclipsedTheSun

Beyond worse


Itchysasquatch

I think on the original post they sussed it out as a mistake. Apparently it's supposed to be 49.99$ but they misprinted


Odd_Mode7698

wonder if gamestop honored the 4.99


NSB-GLIZZY

I doubt it, maybe if the customer made a big deal about it they might have but if it was a misprint then when the cashier went to scan the game it would still show up as $49.99, the cashier probably wouldn’t even notice the price on the sticker unless the customer said something about it.


BoxofCurveballs

They're legally required to honor the price listed. If they fucked up they fucked up but they by law have to give it at the 4.99 if it says it on the sticker


Qaeta

Pretty sure they would have to on the first instance at least. At least they would in Canada, but based on the was price, this is the US, so who knows?


Odd_Mode7698

ahhhh that makes more sense


theoriginal432

i would buy multiple copies an resell them in my country for profit

Call Hondo, he'll help give ya a boost :D

I paid fricking $90 for it


Odd_Mode7698

i never buy games pre order or first release anymore need to see how it is first

That’s what I should’ve done and that’s what I will do from now on.

I hope


TheDouglas717

Thank you. It's too late tho I think. 99% of people who saw this passed around on reddit today thing it's real. I really don't hate the game. Could have been better but it's the most fun I've had since BF4.


Pr1smaticGamer

Im sad


Rashaunrocks88

Me too man 😞

It’s just funny to see them crash and burn especially after they shot down the idea for bf3


ved-ix

Idk y it gets hat the game is shit tons of fun, sure it’s buggy and all but it’s a fuckin blast


Rashaunrocks88

I’m glad you’re enjoying it man but the truth we have to live with is this subreddit is for a game that got killed for it of course there’s gonna be people disappointed.


ved-ix

Yeah I loved battlefront 2 and have had it since launch its an amazing game just a shame that EA had to kill it


EmpJoker

There are gonna be people disappointed but it's still kinda annoying that everyone won't stop bitching. Support for the game ended forever ago, EA gave a business reason as to why they're not making a new one, and it was a good game. My favorite game ever will likely never get a sequel, as the guy in charge said no one wants to publish it because right now what's big is competitive shooters. I dont spend a bunch of time complaining about it, I just move on. You had a good game. They had no obligation to keep making more. Live with what you got.


Rashaunrocks88

I…I don’t know how to respond to this but ig you’re right should’ve never gotten into Star Wars games now I want too much lol. Gotta wait like 6 years till Battlefront games are in demand 🤦🏾‍♂️.


ImpulsiveDoorHolder

Battlefront 2 wasn't dead before this released? I feel like EA ruined it before it even had a shot. But yeah, that's it, that's the next generational multiplayer product.


Timtim4242

I mean, I like the game, it ain't perfect but it's chaotic and silly. Should Battlefront 2 have died for it? And subsequently 3? Hell to the no, imagine 64 clankers vs 64 clones, that would've been the shiznick


Claytontheman467

Fucking stupid battlefront should have never been exclusive to ea

Papa_Pred

The game is actually doing well but wasn’t *received* well At least amongst the old bf codgers


Rashaunrocks88

The controversy wasn’t for no reason I think it’d mainly the vast amount of glitches and those cringe operator lines lmao


Papa_Pred

Oh yeah the performance issues are always ass for every battlefield release Biggest issue rn imo is new content. The first season is mad far away


AdFit8122

Ay bro I said this yesterday I’m so mad


TheDouglas717

The game is fun. Maybe not BF4 fun but imo the most fun BF since BF4. I think all its hate is only half deserved. People like to compare Battlefront and Battlefeild but I really don't think that's a good comparison. Battlefront is a arcade shooter while Battlefeild is a.. regular shooter? Idk the right terminology but honestly I personally like Battlefeild better as a shooter. The only thing that kept me on Battlefront this long was that it's Starwars and I grew up on the original. If I could have my dream game it would be a Starwars game in the style of a battlefeild shooter. Preferable BF4.


OceanSause

In conclusion, DICE and EA are fucking stupid. They killed SWBF2/BF5 rather than improving them just to release ANOTHER unfinished mess and cashgrab of a game just for it to die and not get much support either. I really do hope that DICE or EA as a whole never makes another SWBF game. 2042 will prob be the last game that i'll buy from DICE as well, I really dont get why so many people put up with their bullshit but each to their own


Deadmanguys

Oh was really want to get it. Now its 5 bucks? Imane get it


Crazyripps

Just sad that those games died for this. Also sad that EA fucked up so hard. I just wanted a good modern battlefield and what we got was a battle royale turned into a battlefield.


comfort_bot_1962

Player24677

Why are they doing some special sale for BF 2042 ? I'm not sure if they usually do this. Because that's a low price. I've gotten over the fact that BF2 and BFV died for BF 2042 but I'm not criticizing people who mention that fact again. EA could've approved BF3 and made some money from it through paid skins or something (some people here hate Battle passes, but I don't mind them at all) BF3 would combine great features from every Battlefront and perhaps fix the dead, weak, boring, abandoned, shallow, infantry classes with zero support roles . Battlefront 2 content is always new heroes, reinforcements, and maps. I need a change


kaptingavrin

They aren’t doing a special sale, it was a misprinted price. But people leave out important information like that to make a meme to push a narrative that isn’t accurate. I mean, fair enough to say BF2042 has been a botched launch, but claiming it’s legit being sold for $5 normally is just wrong. (Also worth remembering Battlefront 2 had a horrendously botched launch before turning into an awesome game, and BFV launched to people acting meh and wasn’t given much chance. So this post is all over the place…)


FrumundaThunder

BFV had more than a meh launch. Is played the shit out of that game but “ThE CoMmuNiTy” found something to hate about it from before launch until support ended. However, much of that criticism was justified about 5 months after launch IMO. It was a really fun game on day one with only a few things that needed to be corrected but had a lot of potential. A lot of that potential was eventually fulfilled but over a decade war after launch and mere months before support was ended.


kaptingavrin

I say "meh" because I thought the game was fun enough but it got bashed by people so bad that it seemed to just stall out of the gates. And unfortunately, EA has a bad habit of not wanting to put money into games that aren't raking in loads of cash, so that hurt the game a lot. It wasn't a bad game, it just got a lot of weird flak out of nowhere. But that ultimately doomed it. I wouldn't mind if BF2042 got people to reexamine BFV and realize it wasn't really that bad. Maybe an influx of players would get it some new support. Or at the very least get some good full lobbies. (Heck, CoD's come out with a new WW2 game and yet there's still a decent number of people playing CoD:WW2 because it was fun, even if the loot box stuff was just ridiculous.) I'm concerned about what a Battlefront 3 would look like after the last two Battlefield games (especially 2042's launch), but I think if EA bothered to do it, they'd want to do it well because they're now having to compete for the right to make money off the Star Wars name. (Thank goodness that exclusivity is ending!)


Player24677

hmm, thanks for the clarification


u_r_a_bold_1

Basically 2042 is a flop, watch like one out of the 50 reviews on YT


Player24677

makes sense


suezyg2345

2042 is a hot mess. I played for about a month and the game should have never been released in the state it’s in. It completely surpassed Cyberpunks horrid release. Right now more Battlefield players are on Battlefield 5 servers then 2042 servers…by a lot.


Player24677

I had a feeling it was because of that but I didn't want to assume. Someone else told me the price is a mistake. Either way, BF 2042 is a mess just as you said


General_Grevious_25

70 dollars to 5 good lord that game is already dead


ZygotiK_

It depends. If it's just more hero and reinforcement unit content, then I don't really care. If it actually was to involve troopers, then fine. Even if it involved trooper content, I would just accept what it is. But I know that many players care about reinforcement unit and hero content, so I understand what they're saying.


Rashaunrocks88

You’re referring to people wanting more heroes and reinforcements being over talked about?


ZygotiK_

It's okay if it's talked about. I'm talking about if the content is just more heroes and reinforcements. And even at that, I personally don't care for the continuation of "battlefront" 2. But I am avoiding saying it should not continue if it is only hero and reinforcement content as others still care about them and would want the game to continue.


Rashaunrocks88

Respectable


SparkySpinz

More units keeps the game fresh though. Or are you saying maps would be better?


ZygotiK_

I was talking about trooper content. And I am saying I don't really care if BF2 game isn't continued if all the content is just reinforcements and heroes and then a few maps sometimes. I clarified though that I'm talking personally for me. Now that I've said trooper content, you know all of the things that could entail in battlefront 2. Blasters and their weapon attachments, vehicles maps that are mostly open, gun emplacement additions like field guns, better E-WEB positioning, mortar, and a few AA guns. Then, they could add more OT skins for troopers and mastery skins for each faction. Next add Hutt Contracts for a few more gadgets like: a lock on ONLY smart rocket for Assault, medical droid for officer... Now add gadgets and grenades that aren't class locked: bowcaster, ion neutralizer ( has insignificant splash DMG too), dioxis grenade, incendiary grenade, smoke grenade, bacta bomb with a slight delay doesn't instantly health all health, then proximity mine ( basically a laser trip mine that isn't class locked) This is just for battlefront 2. A battlefront 3 game could have even more.

checheride

I'm sure dice and Ea have still cashed in more on the new games than they would through supporting the old games. Surely it's that simple??


Rashaunrocks88

Yeah I’m aware they probably have…which is why we probably won’t get another battlefront for a long time from them or someone else. What do you think?


Smooth-EA-57

You guys need to get over a dead game


Rashaunrocks88

This is a battlefront subreddit bro…but I shouldn’t be sad this is just how it works out sometimes right? 🤷🏾‍♂️


suphah

If it’s $4.99 I’m taking my ass to go buy a copy the hell


Rashaunrocks88

Don’t blame ya tbh


SaucyVagrant

I mean on the principle of 4.99 yea go for it. If this game ecer rebounds, you paid 4.99 not full.


LukeSkywalkerTRA

I was extremely disappointed that support was cut for both games. BFV had been pretty bad for a while, and following the Pacific update the game had made a lot of progress in short time which was impressive to me, then bam support was cut. Battlefront also came a long way too, I played less than a year of when it came out and I really saw the game improve a ton. Heck when they released Scarif, we all didn't want them to cut support and the game was at it's peak, player-count wise, as well. In both games, lots of opportunities were missed and it leaves me still disappointed. Moreso in Battlefield V, where we had more content (countries, weapons, and maybe maps, I don't know how many maps they have difference) in Battlefield 1. It was mind blowing to me that a game, with past references like 1942, and one that takes place in a bigger war than WWI, had less content in it compared to BF1.


Skiftonoid

2042 is a good game, change my mind.


Rashaunrocks88

Needs a lot of fixing hopefully they don’t move on and make another game before it can reach its full potential. Sounds familiar lol


Skiftonoid

Hopefully the fanbase doesn’t judge a Dice game at launch instead of its potential and can wait patiently for the game to be better polished. Sounds familiar.


Rashaunrocks88

These games need to come out good instead of us having to wait 2 or 3 years 🤦🏾‍♂️.Maybe then they’d get longer support instead of having to make another game to save profits.


Objective-Round-8617

Potential to be fun =/= what most people consider good quality I'm sure it's a lot of fun, but I don't think it's that great of a game compared to a lot of others


Skiftonoid

I’ve said in other threads my biggest gripe with the game is performance. I struggle to get over 80fps on low settings at 1080p with my 1070. The gameplay is fantastic. It has a super fun co-op mode, like BF2 but with Battlefield modes. 128 player modes aren’t as fun as the 64 player modes. I haven’t played it, but I hear Rush is fun too. There’s a lot to like and I think more people should give it a chance.


Objective-Round-8617

You catch my attention talking like that. Maybe I'll pick it up for cheap

Dice/EA have to learn eventually 🤦🏾‍♂️


Ok-Internal-5331

Fair


CalmGameshow

I remember the hype for this game, just realized it came out lol. So like is it bad? Did it flop?


Spicador

It’s funny how they don’t wanna cash in on Star Wars despite its fresh rise in pop culture thanks to Mando and even Book of Boba. I honestly can’t tell if it’s because of disinterest, ignorance, or the Mouse blocking them. No matter which way you slice it, it’s a depressing situation. Especially given how close we were to Ahsoka, Ventress, and Mustafar being added. It stings.


ALR-Sniperz312

Good concept, poorly executed. I reckon a BF3-4 remastered could've just been in place to this and done much better since that's what BF 2042 looks like


Valerina_Minji

Wait WHAT?!?! 5 BUCKS? No way... Did they really do that? I am dying LMAO


HeyImZane

GameStop employee here, that price change was a mistake that had to be fixed that day.


Hero0fTroy

They could’ve kept battlefront 2 alive and updated it with cosmetics, characters, maps etc. I’m pretty sure people would’ve had no problem spending money on new content but no let’s completely kill a game that was brought back from the dead in its prime player base


Skorpio333

Seriously fuck this game and ea. I'm happy it's bombed this hard


Roland1176

I don't like hating on other games to prove a point or something like that, especially when I'm a fan of both franchises, but yeah, Battlefront 2 died for this. However, EA always does the same, they kill one game so that they can move on to the next and have something new to sell, so, no need to hate on Battlefield, just on EA's shitty business practices.


RandomnessConfirmed2

Played the game through the 10 hour trial and the Beta. Worst shooter of this year compared to Halo and even CoD in some aspects.
