Hey Battlefield V Community,

As you are most likely already aware, today marks the official Battlefield V Early Access launch for Origin Access and EA Access subscribers (more details on how to get access if you want to play early here).

We've also just released the Battlefield V - Official Launch Trailer. I'm quite fond of the soundtrack...

If you have early access and are playing the hell out of Battlefield V (which I hope is the case), let us know what you think.

What are some of the insane moments you've experienced so far?

Where are some areas that we can improve upon?

What is your general feedback?

And, be sure to cruise over to our Known Issues thread to stay up to date with the latest known issues we're tracking against (updating on a daily basis).

    Great game, except few issues. TTD is still bugged and very often it feels a instant deat party from any gun.

    And for the love of god active Domination and Frontlines only servers. TDM belongs to CoD and i dont want to have my favourite infantry gametypes mixed with campfest TDM.

    Lovely looking but damn it's very difficult to distinguish between friend or foe.

    Also no revive icons for medics and lots of folk reporting that revive interaction isn't working.

    One thing only.
    WHY CAN'T WE STILL NOT JOIN ON FRIENDS WHO ARE IN A FULL SQUAD???

    I politely asked for it in alpha and beta and still is not implemented, why!?

    I joined EA Access to get 10 hours worth of gameplay but once my time is up can I continue playing if I buy the game? I’d hate to run out of time then be told I have to wait until the 20th while PC players are grinding everyday all day. Thanks

    No you can't continue playing, you have to wait until the release date of you version of the game (dlx-15, std-20). Use your 10 hours wisely.

    Can you get on the phone to Sony to get them to change their plans? Being on PS4 is like having Christmas in February.

    Hello everyone :)

    I'm here to give my feedback. First of all the game is amazing, the music, the sound, the gameplay and pretty much everything else. The UI has received awesome changes from the beta, visibility and the scopes aswell.

    I already experienced tons of battlefield moments. Especially in tanks. Now I will probably just talk about "problems" because everything else is pretty much perfect or need little tweaks that are to me not that important for now.

    1. The matchmaking has some pretty big lags right now. Playing with your friends can be tricky. The biggest lag I've experienced with my friend right now are in grand operations. We can not join the game together either I or him bug, long black screen loading and the lost connection to the server, or even worse we're connected to different server. The only solution for now is to launch the game solo and then the other one join.

    2. On the map Hamada in the first phase of Grand operation the planes were not spawning. So we couldn't spawn back on the map and we lost. On twisted steel, in breakthrough one of my party was 1h30 long because the overtime was lagging blocked at 00.00 until we were able to plant all 3 bombs. During the same party the bomb were not spawning we had to fall back and attack again.

    3. The vaulting system in the Battlefield Franchise always have the same bug and it doesn't seem to have skip BFV. Sometimes there's tiny objects etc you'd like to junp accross or above but you can't and get killed because of it.

    4. Vehicules. In the planes my friend experienced a lag where he would see his body moving further and backwards again inside of the plane. Some of the turrets in the tank are just bugged you just can't aim properly and when you aim you have the back of the weapon in the face. I also had a similar lag after getting revived where I would aim with the weapon ( on foot ) and have the back of the weapon in my face so I couldn't aim properly. Now my opinion on the planes. I'm not a big fan of how they handle. I prefer bf3-4 planes. As much as it is clear to see people on the ground, it's really hard from the air and I feel like you could do a bit more damage to ground targets with your main gun in planes.

    5.General bug feedback. When you get revived, you sometimes pop 10 meters away from where you were. The parachute seems to open only from a really high ground, I do not now if it is intended like this or not but it feels weird to jump from the twisted steel bridge and just die.

    6. the last thing that comes to my mind are the scopes in general but especially sniper scopes x3, x6. You can be on the person when they're not moving and no hit them or hit them but you feel like you were not really on them it's really weird.

    First edit. I sometimes get kicked out of a party and the game closes directly after. No specific time. it could be at the beginning or middle or end.

    General feedback on the menu. The UI looks amazing but soemtimes can be quiet chaotic. Especially in the scopes area that you will use during the game. As an example having all the 3x scopes under the same banner would be good, instead of having them all listed. The "Boins" Battlefield coins you unlock are a good way to unlock, for free, skins etc but I don't like the fact that you have to use them to unlock specialisation aswell. I want to unlock better things for my weapons, vehicules but at the same time I want to buy skins.

    I might update my answer with more but for now this is all I have in mind or noticed.

    Once again amazing game. I really love how you're immersed in the action during the games. I feel like I'm a soldier in private ryan or fury, band of brothers etc.

    Thanks a lot.

    PS: sorry for my english ahah I hope you'll understand every point I mentionned.

    Xbox One X impressions:

    I'm REALLY enjoying the game. Gunplay feels tight. DICE really listened to player feedback and fixed a lot of the problems (ex: dark interiors in buildings, enemies not standing out). The graphics are very beautiful, for this game. I love the different color palettes. Thank you for working on the loading times. They were horrendous, in Bf1, compared to past titles.

    I've played 5 of the 8 maps and they all feel great. They aren't funnel-ey or chokepoint-ey as previous maps (ex: Metro, Locker, Argonne). Certain flags will always have a lot of action, but there are always multiple routes to take.

    There are a few bugs, but it doesn't ruin my enjoyment of the game. The game registered me as completing a sniper assignment, but I hadn't even used the class, up that point. Vaulting always seems to mess up the moment you need it to work the most. Then, I had this happen. Was riding in a tank when the driver drove thru a building. I tried to hop out to take out an enemy, hiding on the roof, when I fell through the map.

    1. Glitch with throwing weapons while in war stories. You can reload and throw them at the same time, have yet to test online.
    2. 2nd mission, little cabins (mostly hold ammo) will make the brightness of the game go very low, like almost black.
    3. MGs, Being sideways while prone has a odd effect of the gun going in and out of ADS
    4. Revive bug when body next to a wall, also sometimes would pick up that players weapon over wanting to press (X) controller - Xbox
    5. I'm not a fan of my person always holding their left hand in the air when they gain ammo or health.
    6. Is there any way to have the upgrade screen that is in the preload in the game as well?
    7. A new match will not read my 2 thumb sticks for anything, But will read my start button. I have to hit start press B after the load, just to pick a place to spawn.
    8. Not a fan of auto spawn, you should need the person to press something, countless people afk at the start.
    9. Is there a way to turn down the brightness? The snow map is crazy bloomy
    10. Also don't care for, Breakthrough, I played it once, won't ever again.

    One I have noticed is visual bug on characters, where they're untextured and floating around like the bug in bf1.

    1.
    The "Panzerfaust" its abused to kill soldiers. The explosive force against people is too big. (Panzerfaust was a pure anti-tank weapon.)
    At the moment it is often used to kill many soldiers at once.
    I would suggest to reduce the aoe circle/dmg vs humans.
    and they make to mutch dmg on tanks. (more as a 1 vs 1 tank battle)

    2.
    i dont like the weapon balance. Some Weapons are crap and other OP.
    the FG 42 its crap.
    i see all macthes the best squads have the same stuff in 80 - 90 %
    Panzerfaust are compl. broken.
    It would be nice to limit sniper pro team or make the handling more difficult.
    For example, a sniper has to lie down for 100% accuracy. or he has to drop his rifle on objects. like the MG mechanics.
    At the moment it is too easy.

    3.
    Tanks are too weak atm. its only pain to play with all the panzerfaust spamming.
    his ammo its ¯\_(ツ)_/¯... no aoe dmg, refill and so on ... i liked the old tank playsyle.
    now noone fear this freekill.

    4.
    Sometimes I have a bug that all planes of a team are shot down and there is no possibility to respawn.

    – The death screen? Too short, too fast. I can hardly tell who killed me, what weapons etc the person was using. I miss that. I want to see who killed me.

    – The kill screen is a bit… dull? I almost can’t notice when I kill someone in the middle of the action. The on-screen notification isn’t enough IMO. Maybe the BF1 sound could be brought back. Or make the skull a different color.

    – Enemy footsteps? I can hardly hear them. Needs some audio tweaking.

    – Team balancing? As much as the team balancing in BF1 could annoy me at times, because it split some teams up and players I wanted to play with ended up on the enemy team… just as much do I miss it now. Now you either go on a massive win streak or you go on a massive loss streak.

    – Default brightness too dark. The dynamic range is really off, and the ”dark” is too dark, with barely any details visible. Difficult to see soldiers. I have turned my brightness almost all the way up (75-80) but still looks a bit too dark.

    – Sometimes difficult to distinguish between friend or foe. But I’ll get used to it.

    – I don’t use tanks but tanks are way, way, way too underpowered. They need a buff. They need to be a bigger threat on the Battlefield. Now they don’t scare me at all as infantry. I don’t even have to avoid them. Unlike BF1.

    *On the map Twisted Steel breakthrough there is a grammar error in the message that follows after the round is complete. I saw it after the first round on that map. it said ''.... it's strategic position...''. It's supposed to be ''its strategic position''

    * Why are words like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, orgasmic censored? How can those words be offensive? Might as well censor ''stupid'' that is more offensive. Couldn't even right that the game had orgasmic sound in 3D headphone mode.

    * Hamada map in Operations as attacker in the first round, destroy cannons with c4, is near impossible to win. The entire map is near impossible to win. You have to look at win/lose statistic. The defenders have ammo creates in their lines and they have the high ground everywhere. Attackers come in, cant delay to jump out of the plane 1 second else we will be shot down by their AA, have to run on open ground and once on an objective we get bombed from all sides from their other high positions.
    There have to be something you can do about it. Maybe let more classes have smokes? give us ammo creates to build closer to their lines? let us build in the open area? trenches or whatever. You can't run back and forth 24/7 and you can't really balance it with having every support dropping ammo, because they do not.

    * As of right now it seems like you can get revived all the time, no matter how you die except from fall damage and if you are getting knifed. For me it make no sense that you can be revived if your vehicle get blown up, you get blown up by a grenade, headshotted or if a RPG/tank shoot you straight on with a rocket. Maybe I am being too realistic here, but that is my thought on it.

    * For the love of God, there must be another way to instantly die? I don't want to sit here and press my right mouse button all the time when dying if there is no one close to me. It is really annoying. Give us a keybind to press once or something.

    * A bit funny point here as I said revive need more realism, but there is no point being a gunner on a tank or other vehicle. You are completely exposed and get shot within 2 seconds. (how do you think it was in real life then hurr durr) hey. I swear no one would stand up straight as you are shooting your MG trying to kill you as they do in games. I don't know how you can tweak that really. Maybe lower the weapon and body in the turret? Give vehicle upgrade for more cover around the turret?

    * Right now I have to quit the match completely when I unlock a new weapon. It says ''unlocked in the next round'', but nothing happens even after the 2nd or 3rd. Only quitting and rejoining a game works. At least in Operations

    *Defenders AA. As attacker you are coming in on your plane. You normally would want to hold your jump as long as possible, but as soon as the first flak hit the plane you are done for. I tried to press jump as soon as the first flak hit the plane and the plane went down with me inside it before the jump animation was complete, killing me instantly. Nerf AA just a bit so you don't have to sit there and spam ''JUMP'' even before the option is there because you know you will die within 3-4 seconds if the AA starts hitting you.

    * MG turret doesn't move with your aim. The gun points forward and only your crosshair moves. 1 time I saw a guy holding nothing, as he was facing the turret 6o'clock but the turret was still facing forward. So turret isn't moving at all.

    * Sometimes I have to click several times for my soldier to start reinforcing / building things. I am perfectly lined up, get the icon up to put down sandbags, I use my keybinds, nothing happens. Sometimes I have to press it 2-4 times. My MS is like 30 so that is not the issue.

    * When revived sometimes you glide 3-5m away as you are standing up

    Thanks

    Played maybe 5 matches yesterday, i liked the beta more than now, i dont know, in beta the game worked like a new game, the tactical play, squad play, the rhythm of battle was more realistic, now on the final game, feels like the very old fast BF style, i dont like it.

    People have complained about details that make the game evolved was new and better game, and because of the complains the developers turn the game to be a very same old tired game again; Please put the beta settings back!

    Hi. Main issues are : sometimes Healing don't work at all while playing medic. in menus : sometimes cannot upgrade weapon, highlight dot doesn't go off when checked all new items. sometimes chosen weapon don't save. all above are as every now and then. but the game itself is brilliant. That prototype rocket is a bit overpowered.

    1. Immersion. Edit: And then: the death screen is quite long with holding the left mouse button. EDIT2: I see now what you mean. I thought it shows the whole time while you are lying there.
    2. Immersion. And look closer. I think everyone loves the new kill notifications.
    3. Cant say nothing about footsteps.
    4. It appears to me that automatching is far better this time. Also, and this is very important, you can finally swing the course of the match! In Bf1 you already knew who was gonna win in the very middle of the match.
    5. If default brightness is too dark (with me too) then maybe turn up the brightness?!
    6. I don't think AT ALL that it is hard to distinguish friend-enemy. Do you see all the red and blue markers? Well...
    7. The few tank rides I had (as a driver) were wonderfully balanced. The tank can be a beast (if you got some skills, that is) while at the same tim soldiers finally have a lot of cover possibilities in the environment (even on Hammada!).

    Please think through your comments?

    Here I couldn't agree more!
    But I love to use the Panzerfaust against enemies myself.
    Snipers are still a tad too strong (especially on Airfield; curíously no problems on Hammada or Twisted Steel though).
