There has been a lot of hype recently about the Battlefield 2 demo and when it will come out. A clever site played a trick on the entire community. It was supposed to come out last night at the earliest and most likely sometime today or this weekend. Here is the link.

I posted this on a BF2 forum and the topic racked up 10 replies almost as soon as it went up. Pretty funny for all those who were excited to finally get their hands on the demo!

I can't freaking wait for this game. Hopefully I still have money when I get back from Vegas.

I hear there isn't going to be a decent single-player mode... the emphasis has all been put on the multi-player ability of the game.

There wasn't really a single player mode in BF1942, either. You could do botmatches against the computer, but it's not like there was a real campaign.

The game is awsome. One of the best games I have played so far. Gameplay is smooth and is lots of fun, definately going to be a big game.

*struggles to run fairly simple games like runescape on high detail and low with itunes on*
It doesn't look like I will be playing the Battlefield 2 demo anytime soon.
*cries* One of you will let me come over to play right?

I can run the game on max settings with a stable 60 fps. This game is amazing, I love the squad system.

Nothing like rushing the enemy main base with a full boat and an attack chopper flying low behind you for extra cover. Then taking out the commanders artilery, UAV and radar, making him pretty useless.

Wish I could find where screenshots are saved, I took some awsome screenies.

What the crap - needs a GeForce FX at least? You can go straight to hell, BF :mad:

Who would want to hunt down totally brainless bots in a game that has no continuity when you can get online and blast your buddy who brings some smarts ? BF rocks. I like the WW2 theme better than any modern stuff, so I really hope the FH mod will be out for BF2 soon. If not, I will stick to FH@BF42. If you like BF, have a look at FH, it brings some realism to the bunny-hopping-tanker parade that BF is.

BF2 is great :)

That's a good way to blow off steam. In BF1942 when I was ........ed off I'd load up a map with a full complement of bots on the lowest difficulty there was and just blast the crap out of them.

What video card do you have GC? I was actually pleasantly surprised that mine was one that was specifically mentioned as being supported (Geforce 6600 (PCIe)).

I've got a Geforce 4 Ti 4400. I've never had any problem with other "next-gen" games. I run HL2 and Doom 3 just fine.

Dammit.

Man, I'm still playing the BF1942 demo....I finally gave in and bought it a few months ago, but I still play that demo more than I play the full version...

Because there are plenty of n00bs to kill in the wake island map demo for BF1942. I loved playing that and just flying around shooting up all of the other idiots in a plane. Now I get to do that in BF2...bombing is a million times easier now...great game.

The demo is pretty good... I like the control of the vehicles... seems to be waaay easier so far. And the weapons are pretty good as well. There are a lot of really cool features like the beeping sound when your vehicle is almost dead, and the fact that you can be a medic and kill someone with the shock pads!

If you think vanilla is way to easy and gummi bear style, try the FH mod :) I *really* hope they create a BF2 port. The shell shock feature would rule :D :D

>>Why would you do that?

Well the millions of n00bs are quite the incentive, course there's also something to be said for the pure feeling of familiarity and security I feel blowing overly confident n00bs....but it was really because a bunch of guys in my house decided they liked the game...so we just started playing together.

I'll get BF2 Demo when I return to my T1 at school.

I love flying the black hawk in BF2. I can do plenty of tricks in it, I always love scaring all the people riding in it by doing a low altitude barrel roll and almost nailing the ground, or landing the blackhawk in the carriers boat bay . Also, landing it on top of the giant crane also confuses people.

?? I assume you mean the origional BF. I don't even think there are any aircraft in the Demo, and the full version hasn't been released yet.

Govtcheez

It sounds like there are aircraft in the demo, from what I've heard. He can't be talking about the original because there weren't a whole lot of Blackhawk helicopters in WWII.

Yea, but I can't play Wake with my friends who don't have the game in the full version.

Ah, ok. That actually makes sense.

Tell your friends to drop $20 and buy the damn game :p

Is there more than 1 mission in the demo? I didn't see any aircraft.

I was talking about the VF2 demo. There are plenty of aircraft and vehicles in the demo.
