Couldnt see a thread for this (woohoo forum is getting big!), and wondered if you lot had seen these.

Looking very very sweet indeed. BF2 with a basis in real world events would be rather nice.

On another note, Treyarch recently posted an ad for level builder with a specific mention of CoD5. It also said "Interest in WW2 desirable" :/

I glad they didn't go for the obvious route and pick a Middle Eastern setting. Oh.

At least with these guys you know the game will be good at least.

That sounds like Treyarch is going to continue with the poorer odd number releases, with Infinity Ward doing the proper games on even numbers.

Is this the one that is back onto the PC as well?

Never been a huge fan of console FPS's so it returning to the PC would definately increase my interest. I couldn't be bothered with CoD 3 at all.

I dont think anyone is too sure. I have a feeling its 360 only. But I'm not putting my name to that, hence sticking it in Multiformat :)

I agree, I cant normally play console FPS's although the slower pacing of CoD2 made it the first I was able to play semi-decently.

Timesplitters and Rainbow 6: Vegas (although not really an FPS as such) are the only two I've got on with, CoD 2 I had on PC and really enjoyed it.

Didn't even think that much of Halo TBH.

Anyone read the TeamXbox multiplayer preview? Sounds fantastic, especially with the airstrikes and attack choppers.

Finally a successor to BF2?

It's not one that I've really been following, but, as with Mass Effect which was in a similar boat for me, I was blown away by it at E3 and will definitely be there for some action when it comes out.

So are we up for an AATG match up later this week?

I'd have said we could try tonight, but Live will probably collapse under the weight of everyone trying to download the beta ;-)

Yeah, especially as it's been down all morning for the maintenance. I'll be about probably - I'll keep my eyes open for anyone else...

Have you guys been mailed your codes to download the beta, then? I'll be about at times this week, if all goes smoothly.

I haven't got mine yet ilm. Someone over on EG said they wouldn't be sending them out 'til late afternoon/early evening. Your friends list is full though so I won't be able to spot you - I tried to invite you a couple of weeks ago.

Haven't checked yet mate.

I won't even try downloading it today anyway.

Oh, cheers, I'll sort that out. Haven't been on Live for a while.

Sil - yeah, probably a good point. Tomorrow morning while the yanks are still asleep might be the way to go.

I think the Americans already have it. I flipped across from my friends list to the 'people you've played online at some point' list last weekend (before they even announced the European beta) and some bloke I had played Virtua Tennis against once upon a time was listed on my machine as playing the CoD4 beta. I assume he's American because the Euro beta wasn't even announced until a couple of days later.

Scratch that, I got 10 minutes in and it may just very well be the finest multiplayer FPS I've ever played. The rural map is simply gorgeous. The other warehousey one is bit mundane, but the weapons, pace and multiplayer options are simply fantastic.

Whizzo is going to be Support Class Heaven. Its the first game I've ever played where the SAW is actually useful for its real purpose...laying down a shit load of fire at a distance, rather than being so inaccurate that you only really benefit from it at close range. The shoot through walls thing is awesome...seeing an assault class teammate being pinned down, then dumping 100 SAW rounds through the wall and killing the guy was just "holyshitfuck I like this".

Oh and the depth of field when you go to iron sights is sweeeeet.

AATG vs EG is a must.

Oh has anyone found a way to make the assault class guns into single shot? I hate burst fire.

Excellent, I hadn't played much of any online shooters until the Halo 3 beta, but that sounds very nice.

Did anyone who was getting a code via the EG thing get their code yet?

edit: that makes me sound a bit too 'EG 75ker', doesn't it, posting that for the second time in a day? I haven't played on Live for a while though and I'm looking forward to this.

No, I went through Gamespot although it seems they're out of tokens until tomorrow.

I've promised my Game one to morriss, just waiting to see if he needs it, otherwise I'll stick it here and whoever wants it, gets it.

Well I've signed up via Gamespot as well and nothing so far.

EG is looking pretty silly after this though.

Someone on the official thread said they were out of tokens today, but they'll have some tomorrow. Edit: Err sorry, forgot I already mentioned that :P

Oh bugger, I just realised the email Game sent me isnt a token, its just an activation code. If anyone still wants it though, its 0BK884U6A.

How are the controls on this compared to, say, a PC shooter (turning, aiming wise)? Also is it more tactical than action?

If it's not fast controls and tactical then I may have to go for the PC version, although the online of XBL tempts me.

Stupid broken Xbox.

Well, I'm the worlds worst FPS pad player and I didnt find it too bad. Maybe its just I'm getting used to them though.

What I like about it is theres alot of scope for playing how you want. The very brief play I had I was basically camping with the SAW pinning down people trying to cross a bridge. Rather helpfully an Italian guy was covering me with an assault rifle too.

In that regard it has the BF2 PC feel to it...you can charge around, or play at a slower pace. And oh god the sniper suit looks awesome.

Its not going to have BF2's overall strategy to it though...its basically just a deathmatch type game, so dont be expecting something on Ghost Recon 1's level of tactical play.

It sounds like I'll cope then. I'm pretty useless online at really fast ones (Doom 3 deathmatch, GoW etc.). As long as I can sneak around a little bit or find cover to attack as a team as you describe then it'll suit me.

Sniper sounds interesting too.

AATG vs EG could be good. Do they get 80,000 people that can barely string a sentence together? :oP

I've improved since the dual sticks became the norm. I couldn't handle the one stick/d-pad method at all - sucked at Goldeneye, & Q3A on the DC.

Something seems to have happened to the EG keys. No-one has got one from there yet.
