Just noticed this on steam.

 

the videos of the gameplay looks real impressive plus i noticed it said " Support For Dx11 " so be a game to try out the new range of DX11 cards..

I 'might' be tempted - I really enjoyed BF2. Tank FTW! The pre-order features look interesting too. Still, it is US$50... With no discount on pre-order just extra features...

Apparantly you get Beta access starting January 28, right through til the end of February, so you basically get the game a month early.

 

As for servers, I'm not too sure, from what I've heard, Dice/EA are hosting all the servers themselves, whether or not that means we get some australian ones or not is a different story.

 

I'm pretty sure some of the BF2 EA Play servers were/are hosted in Aus though.

All are hosted in Aus on the Gamecreate servers.

Will send an email off to EA in the next few days about getting a BC Beta server up. See what comes of that. Assuming the game allows for dedicated servers of course and they haven't screwed it up like happened with MW2.

I thought they came out and pretty much said we didn't fuck our game up like infinity ward did?

They did, but then they also said that they will be hosting dedicated servers, and there will not be a dedicated server tool for ISPs/3rd pary server providers.

I hope they've changed the destruction mechanics though, it was really bad in Bad Company, you could only blow holes in the walls, and all the holes were certain sizes and in certain places on the buildings, was an interesting mechanic in bf1943(i never played BC) but ultimately useless.

 

Also made hiding from tanks that little bit too hard.

you can't talk for any of those yet, since you have been playing a pre release torrented version of ME2 it might not even be the full thing not to mention the other 2 are not even out yet.

Dice have only said they won't be publicly distributing the server files, "trusted partners" like Internode or Gamearena will have access to the server files.
