but BF's usual release date is mid to late Oct. Cod's has usually been right around Nov 11 .... Oh. New CoD title is Oct 12 release date. Uh-huh - pulling the Samsung undercut - when they released the Note 7 a month before that year's latest iPhone #.
Either way, we get a BF V beta next Thurs, Sept 6, that is said to incorporate the new changes detailed in my upper post's link.
So I tried the beta at 3am CT and found nothing but servers in Airborne mode on that stupid alpha map - Narvik. 30 fps in menu at Med low graphics - gtx 680 with 4gb vram - air cooled. Set graphics level to Min - got 50 fps in menu. Didn't bother getting into queue coz all populated servers were close to 10 in queue, refreshed even.
So I'll try again tomorrow in mid-day sun with all the othrr mad dogs and see what's what.
I'm hoping my lot don't go for BFV if I'm to be honest. I have moved to Linux full time and as BFV isn't on Steam I can't readily play it. If it's on Steam then Windows games now run on Linux but Origin? not so much...
Daughter picked up BF5 for my birthday and I picked up a BF1 key from one of those CD key places (deluxe for $15 US) BF1 runs like butter at 4K everything maxed out. The BFV demo gets lots of shuddering but I only played about 4-5 minutes on my lunch break. Need to tweak a bit. I did find it funny to be outfitted on the American side with a STG44????? Hell the Germans didn't even have that many LOL. Will give it some time this evening to see if I can get the settings down
good luck wit dat! that and the cartoon book colors and lack of 3d perception like BF1's - and you know this buggy baby is full of undeveloped crap, not to mention the incredibly yawn-inducing bleedouts, the COD5 footsteps echo chamber, the low clip counts, the lack of bullet drop, 2 seat tanks, and I don't even know about the planes. BF1 is a real game that accomodates the players as partners in the tanks and vehicles, apart from the 1 rider horse, the small 1 man tank, and the 1 man artillery trucks.
