Battlefield 5

All posts tagged Battlefield 5

Hey everyone, thanks for taking a look at the latest blog post. Today was the official reveal for the next line in the Battlefield franchise: Battlefield 1.

I was able to watch the livestream and learned quite a bit about it, and while I’m not 100% on-board yet (they’ll have to go through a successful launch before I am back on board 100%), I will say this Battlefield looks graphicly amazing, and some of the gameplay and details sound like they could provide some interesting, and very typical, Only in Battlefield experiences.

Battlefield 1 - Ship at Sea

The buy page (http://www.battlefield.com/buy/battlefield-1) tells us this about the game:

Fight your way through epic battles going from tight urban combat in a besieged French city to big open spaces in the Italian Alps or frantic combats in the Arabic sand dunes. Experience large-scale battles as infantry or piloting vehicles on land, air and sea, from the tanks and bikes on the ground, to bi-planes and gigantic battleships.

The Early Enlister Deluxe Edition Includes:

• Early Access on October 18th
• Hellfighter Pack

Battlefield 1 - Plane in Air

From the info here, we can determine there’s going to be some expansion packs (at least 4) that include themed weapons and gear, battlepacks are back, and multi-vehicle and Battlefield-typical, warfare.

For the full reveal, check out the Official Battlefield 1 trailer here:

The trailer has tons of great info in it, and the livestream had several Youtubers asking questions after the trailer was revealed. Through these questions, we found there are going to be different vehicle dynamics – you won’t be able to “learn one tank and know them all” – each tank will have it’s own style of play and it’s own quirks; there will even be tanks that can house a full squad (though I’d hate to be in that bad boy when it get’s C4’ed)! Because of this specific answer to one of the questions presented, I think we can assume a lot (if not each one) of the vehicles are going to have different “quirks” that will require you to “know your vehicle” to use it to the best of its ability.

There will also be some different dynamics for infantry gameplay, including “roles” – it was mentioned the flamethrower role specifically will be “unique” and “each soldier will have an opportunity to play as [the flamethrower]”. They didn’t want to reveal too much here as there will be “more details in the coming months”, but this sounds to me like it’s going to be some type of “pick-up” base “utility” (I’m thinking similar to the Rorsch or M82 autosniper).

It was also confirmed that weapon customization is “back with a twist”. They didn’t go into detail at all, so we don’t know if this will mean we have camos and camo customization like they recently added to Battlefield:Hardline, if it’s weapon attachments like rifle scopes or grenade launchers, or if some hybrid of the two.

Battlefield 1 - Box Art

Either way, the trailer is looking to offer a good venue to push the Battlefield franchise into the future. Personally, I can’t wait until 2143 and more futuristic battles, but I’ll be on the Battlefield just the same while we wait for the next one to come out. As long as the launch of Battlefield 1 goes better than Battlefield 3 or (especially) Battlefield 4, I will be happy.

I’ll keep posting quick updates about Battlefield 1 as more information comes available.

Until next time, I’ll see you on the battlefield, SOLDIER!

Hello everyone, it’s been a while since AK907 has posted anything, but I wanted to put some updates out here and let you know that AK907 is NOT dead, and in fact, we are still playing games!

Though the site and blog have not been updated in a while (and the reasoning behind that was due to an inability to login as anyone, but that has since been resolved), the AK907 clan has continued to build stronger relationships between our members through gaming. So everyone is aware, the AK907 clan is currently playing the following games, with some additional games listed that a few members have begun dabbling in:

  • Rainbow 6: Siege – This has been a great game that has provided me with many hours of entertainment. It’s a FPS that is very tactical and requires stealth, map knowledge, and intel on your enemy to successfully launchRainbow 6 Siege Playablesan attack/defense against your opponent. Right now, this is one of the primary titles the AK907 clan is playing, so if you’re looking for someone to team up with, please join our TeamSpeak Rainbow 6 channel and let’s get to pwning!
  • Battlefield
    • Battlefield:4 never died, and in fact, it has gotten a LOT better and is even being boasted as THE “best netcode in any first-person-shooter game to-date”!
    • Battlefield:Hardline is alive on console, but for the most part the AK907 clan has stopped playing it (I may find myself jumping on a server when new maps come out, but there’s just not a large enough PC player base to continue considering Hardline a game we have on our gaming list)
  • Call of Duty – A few of us may play older versions of this game on occasion, but I don’t even know how many people own the most recent. The most recent one I own is BlackOps 2.
  • CounterStrike:Global Offensive – Most of us own it and play it on occasion, it may be something that grows if we find more people willing to play, but Rainbow 6 has taken most of the tactical shooter scene right now.
  • Star Wars: Battlefront – This game has been on the AK907 list since it came out, and at first it seemed to be a great game, but that “shiny new feeling” quickly wore off with only a small handful of maps to play; things got old and repetitive real quick. I occasionally hop on, and my son still loves the game.Star Wars Trooper on EndorThe latest content was kind of a flop in my book because it was all close-quarters and there were NO new large maps, like everyone wants to play.

Along with the above games, our members also regularly play the following (though these are not “official” AK907 games, meaning we don’t have dedicated discussions or forum sections for them):

  • The Division
  • League of Legends
  • Overwatch (when released)

 

As stated above, there have been some problems with the web site/blog, but they have been resolved and I am able to get back in and provide updates when I am able.

AK907 means a lot to me. The friends I have gained from it. The growth that some of us have seen through projects on AK907 servers. Most of all, the community that we have built and have maintained through the years. Thank you to each and every person that has ever used an AK907 server.

That being said, we do not want AK907 to die; though things may seem slow right now, we can say there are titles in the future that will bring this clan back together (mainly Battlefield 5) and bring many new people into the clan. We would like to open discussions with members and non-members looking to become members to see if there’s any way we can find a way to keep this clan, the TeamSpeak, the forums, the blog, all of it, active. We will be looking for anyone we can find that is willing to take the time and put the effort into keeping this moving, including new White House (and other!) members! I’d like to continue to see new sign-ups, and we will need someone to process  those, I would like to start pushing Rainbow 6: Siege and get at least a 5 or 6 man team that is willing to practice regularly (a couple days a week maybe at first and see what happens and how things grow), and keep Battlefield on the front of peoples plates.

If YOU would like to be a part of this growth, please apply to become a member here, join our TeamSpeak, and talk to us!
