    We've barely got to see the Alpha build. If it is released before the end of the year you can consider us lucky!

    Some estimate it will release in March or April, not May or beyond. May will be the time they release the BF2018 trailer and start the hype for it then we have EA Play, E3, BF2018 alpha, Gamescom, then the beta.

    I look at it as they are constantly improving and adding new things.

    It’s already to late, unless some of my mates are competing I won’t care about watching it.

    Jojje Dalunde, producer on Incursions, tweeted this today.



    This is basically the first glance we’ve seen of Incursion on consoles, to my knowledge. No word on any release date, though.

    I think it’s reasonable to draw the conclusion, that Incursions is being developed mainly with BF2018 in mind. Yeah, BF1 will get this mode, but 1 1/2 years after the release of the game, it feels more like testing ground for the next title.

    Nice! This is indeed the first time we here anything about Incursions testing on console.

    I agree with you. A little too late and too specialised IMHO.

    We all know this is a test for the next bf game

    Incursion and a battle royale will be the focus for the next installment

    I reckon we'll see this end April for testing, this gives 6 months of testing tomadd to the next bf game

    Hopefully anyway

    This will be a very niche game mode at best, mainly aimed at competitive players. If they do not like it I can see it dying completely. If you are a casual player I do not think you will like it at all

    I would of swapped incursions for squad death match and weapon master personally

    Or better yet give platoons and server owner the ability to completely customise the server to allow for competitive play, like class limits, weapon banning/locking certain weapons (looking at you gas), conquest small or player map scaling, even a match count down would be a start

    Surely that's a better option.....and cost effective solution til the next bf?

    Complete control over server customization would have been all that was required to make comp players very happy, you are 100% correct. Choosing what weapons to ban etc bullet damage x1.25. x1.50 etc, having all that available would be great

    What's the competitive scene like - think there will be much interest?

    I'm not competitive but am what would be considered a try-hard, and it doesn't particularly attract me into the competitive scene. Feels like its a niche on a niche - and I wonder if organised scrims would still be better on other modes than a dedicated and somewhat constrained gamemode. Especially with the more rigid class structure it looks like its implementing.

    Currently comp is a mess

    Not allowed to take certain flags, or weapons, some maps have banned roofs etc etc to stop all the camping exploits with explosives etc etc

    Having the above options would sort 90% of all the issue with comp play

    Ironically u had all this in previous bf 3rd party servers, dice wanted all the money for rented server, and made it in house and a joke system really, considering the price they want for limited options on servers u pay for

    I see the appeal of these options as well and would of course be happy to have them yet I don't see why these options would change anything in regard to comp games. banning a weapon in the server options and banning it with a rule yields the same outcome. of course oke doesn't need to care about enforcing the rules but thst is sometimes that rarely happens anyway...
