I have not spent as much time with the Battlefield 5 beta as I would have liked. However, I have still managed to spend a couple hours with the Xb1 version and I wanted to share my thoughts.
To start with I must admit that I know there is some controversy in regards to EA - DICE censoring the chat. I have not experienced that myself so I cannot comment on it. One thing I can comment on the lag that people are talking about.
My Battlefield V experience went ok for the most part, but I did experience a fair bit of lag in most of the games I played. It was not game breaking or anything and to be fair it is a beta so I am sure it will be fixed. So I am not sure why people are freaking out about it.
I only played a few matches and there is just something lacking. I am not saying that it is bad or anything like that. Once I entered the first match I was very impressed with how good the game looked, but there was nothing wowing me while I actually played it. To be fair to the guys and gals at DICE I feel that Battlefield is the kind of game that you really have to spend more than just a couple of hours with to get to grips with so I am not going to be too harsh on it.
I just feel that DICE and EA really needed the reception of the Battlefield 5 open beta to be better than it is. Especially given how well the Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 beta went over with fans.
Battlefield 5 is still a game that is on my pre-order list. I have heard some people say that they are holding off on getting the game or canceling their pre-order. I though am still very interested to get my hands of the full experience.
