In the 2015 recreation, autos and heroes had been solely accessible by pick-ups scattered across the map. This system is gone, and though DICE didn’t fairly clarify what we’ll be changing it, it confirmed that you just’ll have the ability to spawn into autos the identical means you’d in Battlefield 1.
The similar goes for heroes. Additionally, you gained’t have the ability to land or take off. Some objects will nonetheless be accessible as pick-ups, nonetheless, such because the Smart Rocket.
One of the criticisms the unique confronted has to do with the dearth of depth in fight, making the sport very simple to play and offering little problem in a while. This time round, fight can be extra demanding.
