Crossplay party support between PS and PC.

Functionality for groups, communities, clans, guilds, etc.

Possibly. Or maybe it'll just display your PS activity on your profile, who knows.

I never really got the point with Discord. As a PS5 user what does this add to my experience? Genuine question.

It's not really of note to those gamers who have no mates. rofl

But really, I play crossplay RL with someone on Xbox while I'm on PC. We need a way to converse. Discord is that way. He uses it on his laptop with a second set of headphones. Would be much easier if it had a native Xbox client.

It's also (generally) less laggy than Xbox party chat, which is important for eSports-ready people like me.

Just read about Alex, Brad and Vinny leaving Giant Bomb.

It's been coming for years but surely that's now the end of Giant Bomb.

What happened to Stadia? Fucked as anticipated?

Not enough people bought it and then Google predictably laid off everyone making 1st party titles for it.

Battlefield 2042 is an evolution of the franchise and embraces what our players want – the ultimate Battlefield multiplayer sandbox with intense combat and a ton of incredible, unexpected events,” said Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager of DICE. “All of us across DICE in Stockholm, DICE LA, Criterion, and EA Gothenburg have had so much fun developing this game and now it’s time to let players jump in. What they’ll find is that we’ve built three distinct, absolutely epic experiences that we think they’ll love.”

The biggest, most ambitious title in the franchise, Battlefield 2042 includes:

All-Out Warfare – the next generation of fan-favorite modes Conquest and Breakthrough, featuring the largest maps ever for the franchise and for the first time, up to 128 players*. Experience the intensity of All-Out Warfare in large-scale battles like never before on maps filled with dynamic weather, dangerous environmental hazards, and spectacular world events that see tornadoes rip across the map and sandstorms block out the sun.

Hazard Zone – an all-new, high-stakes, squad-based game-type for the Battlefield franchise that is a modern take on the multiplayer experience that is distinctly DICE but very different from All-Out Warfare’s Conquest or Breakthrough modes.

TO BE ANNOUNCED – the third experience, being developed by DICE LA, is another exciting new game-type for the franchise. This experience is a love letter to Battlefield fans and one that long-time players will feel right at home with. Tune-in to EA Play Live on July 22 for all the details.

Looks dreadful to me. Clearly I'm not the target audience though, and it is geared more towards people who want to play out their Fast & Furious fantasies.

 

It looks a long way away from what Battlefield was. But that's not unexpected, as they've been milking every last drop from this franchise for years. Just a shame that with every sequel they seem to get further and further from what made the first few games in the series so great.

I'll be giving it a go but I fully agree with you.
