Some map info:

I really like the Obliteration game mode. Looking forward to Tuesday!

Wow. Thanks for adding that. I never realized that EVERY SINGLE game mode other than Conquest is going to be absolutely no different on next-gen consoles than they will be on this gen, aside from having another 4 members per team. Disconcerting, to say the least. I'm amazed that so many are eating up the new game modes, given how everyone bitched and moaned for years about not having the 64 player count versus PC. frown.gif

Personally for me I like how the new game modes will be set up. I have been craving some 64 man CQ on consoles for some time now, but to have 64 players in all game modes I think would have been a bad move. Could you imagine trying to play a game of rush against 32 other people...I could see it being very difficult to make it past the first set of M-coms.

I am mainly a CQ player so that will be my game mode of choice, but some of these other game modes with smaller player counts sound pretty fun too.

Its going to suck not being able to have a mixed server without gimping conquest. Hopefully this is something they change later on.

Just got finished playing 64 man Rush. It's awesome.

I am skeptical as well as far as different modes/different player counts. I don't know why they wouldn't just let the admins pick the player count and then the players can decide what server they want to jump into.

That was the failure of Close Quarters on Console...at least a fail to me because it was limited to 8 per team, not the usual 12 per team. Do you know how little I got out of Close Quarters? Little. If it was12 players, I would have played all the time and liked it. We'll see how it goes.

IDK, definitely a little confused / frustrated. It's like everyone (the community at any given time) is going to get split up into different games modes/servers because a player count mandated for one mode doesn't work well with another more mainstream mode, and there won't be enough variety of maps for the mode that you prefer, when they limit player count like this. You will go to one of these new modes for a change of pace, but guess what, it fails because everyone is off playing Conquest and Rush, and you just don't want to play that "different mode over and over".

Sounds like they are about to botch this up. What do ya bet that PC can handle larger player counts and console can't?

I checked the 360 this morning before leaving for work and didn't see the Beta available for download. Just checked xbox.com and didn't see it either. Not a big deal, just making sure I'm not missing the link somewhere. I would think it would be on the main Battlefield 4 game page.

Thanks,
Matt

On EAs site it says to go to the games section on your dashboard and you should see the link in one of the ads.

As far as I know...CQ and Domination on Siege at Shanghai.

Here is a video my buddy made this morning from the 360. This is how he got the beta to DL in the US, although I heard some people are getting their consoles banned for doing this so do this at your own risk.

1, sign out of xbox live. 2, go to console settings, click the language and locale tab. 3, change locale to United Kingdom. This will disconnect you from xbox live, don't sign back in! Go to network and TEST your connection, then when your connected go to the games tab and you'll see the BF4 exclusive beta. 4, click that and it'll take you to the BF4 page with the beta in the upper right tab. 5, click it and then it will ask you to sign in but DON'T! Press the B button to go back to the page you were just on AND THEN sign in from you controller button. Click the tab again and Download. That's it

BF3 Premium member since the start, but no access to the BF4 Beta on my Xbox 360.
I'm on the Games section of the dashboard, but no BF4 in the tiles.
Can't find it searching in the Games section.

Anyone else encounter this and found a workaround?

All of my buddies are saying it is up on the US dash to DL now. I heard it is kind of meh, but that was expected being it is on the old consoles. I still can't wait to get home, get it DL'ed and see what it is all about.

Downloaded, played this afternoon & then deleted it.
Saw enough.
It's good, but on the ONE it will hopefully look much better.

Pretty boring beta, imo. Same map, over and over and over. No boats! One tank per side. One little bird per side. Definite CoD feel to it. mad.gif

That said, with only a few AVSers on, we were spawn camping the enemy after just a couple of matches. biggrin.gif

Much better.


I do agree with Spyder, except the COD feel. We know there will be more vehicles in that map and if I remember correctly I think I remember seeing attack choppers in that map, but that could be PC only. 1 map does blow and I wont be playing as much as I had planned. My highlight was taking the building down right off the bat. I know its a beta and that most likely was a real old build so I will wait to judge the game on Oct 29th.

I played a couple matches on PC and it's an entirely different experience. So much so that I prob won't even bother starting with the PS3 version. It was fun last night, but feels so gimped after playing the way it was meant to be played. That map is made for 5 flags, watercraft, and more vehicles. Preparing the bucket for the weekend of the 16th.

How did you take down the building so quickly? Do you have to destroy all those pillars which are visible outside? Did you launch rockets?

I heard them say that it's the 4 pillars on the water side, but I thought those were the ones I was shooting when we were playing, so...

Yes it's the 4 pillars on the water side. You can tell because they are missing some concrete and you can see the rebars. 2 rockets to each pillar and it's down.

Ground shakes if your standing next to it shooting RPGs at it too smile.gif

There will be a much different feel on next gen so I may not keep on this beta too long either. I did get the PS3 version so it will be interesting going from beta to current gen to next gen within a few weeks of each other

I like chopper flying, it feels very responsive. I still can't hit anything I shoot at but the flying is much better for juking and evading. The big buildings are good to duck in and out of.

Spent some time staring off in the distance last night and the cityscape looks really cool and well defined. I think next gen is going to be phenominal once all the textures are there and we have 64 players.

I sent everyone I was playing with a challenge last night also. It might not be working in the beta. I would think they get a message to accept the mission.
