So no word on the other faction jets. DICE and EA are dumb as shit if they think we'll be using the F-35 as an air superiority fighter. Considering the time jump here, I think the Russians might be using some future variant in the PAK FA program. Although I could also see them still using some future variant of the Su-35. In either case Sukhoi is taking a steaming shit on us right now. It's really embarrassing.

It really just depends on whether or not EA and DICE want to recognize their real intended mission purpose over how they are actually going to be used in the game. Then again you have to account for how dumb they are. In the Back to Karkland DLC they had the F-35 replace the F-18 for no real reason. Totally makes sense to replace an air superiority fighter with a clunky one size fits all stealth fighter when gameplay demands it fight other jets. I could see them switching jets in the campaign, where there are gameplay guidelines, but multiplayer will always be a clusterfuck.

EDIT: Really curious about the J-20 still. Those canards make for a shitty stealth fighter, but will probably aid in its use in BF4. Even more-so if EA and DICE assume that China might actually incorporate thrust vectoring at some point by 2020. Doubt it though.

EDIT2: Although then again the French are going to equip the Rafale with thrust vectoring control engines to keep it relevant through 2025, and with it being such a similar design, China might get with the program.

Hopefully by the time this comes out I'll be able to fly the jets without crashing

The BF3 trailers had a lot of explosions and shit but at least you could still see what was going on. This is just too much for my tastes though. Seems like it was made to keep even the most impatient little ADHD kid interested. Sure it makes for an unbelievable experience when you play this at max settings with 5.1 surround sound but they seem to forget that the most amazing games didn't have any of this crazy shit and are still played today (h1/2,cs,bf2,cod4). Same shit with the newest COD's and Crysis. More explosions do not equal a better game. Just my 2 cents.



Of course I could be completely wrong and this game might be amazing.

Don't really care about how they're marketing it but I'm a sucker for interactive enviroments.

But yeah, Micheal Bay is directing all of those trailers, huehuehue.

So it's not like they're the only ones producing games with sub-par campaigns.

That said, I don't really play for the campaign, I have fun with it. But blowing holes in everything > campaign.
You mean like battlefield, Medal of Honor, cod? Or any game period?

Never been too much of a battlefield person and probably won't pick it up at launch. But if they end up doing something like that Close Quarters map pack/playlist thing like they did in BF3 then I might consider picking it up (unless they already are, haven't kept up on it at all).
