  1. I wish they could spawn large monsters on the maps that hunt whoever and at random times it ignores everyone, to have a bit of randomness and new experience every time. Maybe instead of circles closing in, have giant monsters that spawn, and you get an option to kill them or something.

    Maybe there's one or two giant monsters is enough. Idk that might make BR a bit interesting.

  2. i tried blackout when it was free for a week… i can tell its not worth freaking 60 bucks…apex legends is much better…and its free

  3. Oh how developers, publishers, analysts and journalists will be baffled as to how hard 1-map full price battle royale games will crash and burn in sales. It'll start 2019.

  4. Battlefield will never go free-to-play and i dont think they ever should. However, Blackout going free-to-play is not a bad idea since its a battle royale only game and BFV isnt.

  5. This is a dumb video these triple A companies aren’t just gonna make a mode in there flagship franchises free because the free ones are more successful. It just doesn’t make sense, there’s no precedence for this but I feel like you guys talk about It like there is.

  6. To me it doesn't matter to BO4 anymore. They've made their entrance some time ago. Those who are interested would've bought the game by now. So I don't think they will go f2p

  7. It doesn't have to compete with it because mw4 will have a BR mode as well. Activision's goal was to get as many cash as they can and they succeeded. 60 dollars to play a br game is already a success. I also bet with you they invested in that mode less than 3 mil dollars.

  8. Am I the only one who thinks apex is literally a copycat of all battle royal modes just mixed in one but is so clunky on PlayStation.. yea you can’t build but who gives af. The hype behind it is only because it’s free and people dickride everything.
