Labor Day Weekend serves as an amazing opportunity for gamers to sit down in the air conditioning and escape the end of summer heat. Hopefully you took the chance to get your hands on the Battlefield 1 Beta. If you aren’t a part of the cool crowd yet, there are plenty of members who have offered up their thoughts on the game in our Battlefield 1 Opinions thread.
Battlefield 1 Beta takes us to Sinai Desert where soldiers can play both Conquest and Rush versions of the map. Sinai Desert packs a ton of new aspects to the game that Battlefield players haven’t experienced yet. New transportation is available as you can take to horseback to cross the rugged desert terrain. When your team is looking for an edge to put you in front of the opposing team, hop on the armored train equipped with a devastating arsenal of its own. Varying weather conditions also have the chance to roll in putting everyone in the middle of a raging sandstorm.
With many new aspects to the game, here is what the members say about their experience so far.
I am far from knocking this game as a whole in any way, shape, or form. We’ve only seen the game for one day and we’ve only seen one map, very limited weapons, and one style of vehicle set up. This beta will not sway me from the game, because I know there is still a lot more to come. So far, for the most part, I am liking what I’m seeing. If anything, this beta will excite me further into seeing all the rest of the maps, weapons, vehicles, etc.
I enjoy it, but I’m not amazed by it. Graphics are nice, but I’m waiting for the full game to be dazzled by its wonders.
Finally got to play. Graphics are insane…. kinda has that star wars battlefront feel to it which I didn’t like. Planes fly like the aircraft in battlefront which I’m also not a fan of. Infantry is fast and smooth. Looks like I’ll be on the ground for this BF.
BF1 is just not my cup of tea right at this moment. The graphics are stunning – and the game is fun and epic, and I find myself coming back for a little more.. but the overall experience is not enough to convince me to pay $60 – let alone $130 for it. If I see and hear more, maybe I will reconsider. But considering the beta was released 2 months from release, exactly as Battlefront – and relatively little was changed.
It is addictive gameplay but so help me that conquest scoring has got to go, and did I even get points for following my squad around and feeding them ammo while they fed me health bags? I swear I put half a mag into a few people and watched them turn around with a pistol and one shot me. It has it’s good and bad.
