The fact they have to explain how it's not an expansion is a complete fail. Look at Advanced Warfare the developers clearly do not have to say how this isn't an expansion to Ghosts, but with this year Battlefield Visceral does. Just a complete fail EA.

I watched some beta or whatever it is footage on twitch and it looked like just that a expansion

Yup, looks like a cops and robbers mod/expansion.

I suppose the SP could be a totally different experience, but the MP just looks totally BF4... Minus tanks.

Activision doesn't explain that new CODs aren't expansions because it's been known for a few years now that every game after MW1 was an expansion.

So yeah, new maps, new weapons, new characters, new game modes, new SP campaign... Expansion--right.

The reason they are saying it's not an expansion is because the name kind of would imply that it is, versus having the game named battlefield 5, which implies it's a new entry to the series.

Either way, I've heard a lot of people saying the beta is really fun. That's what really matters here.

Played some of the "beta". It was fun but literally 90% or more of the assets are from BF4. This better not be a $60 product.

Because CoD sequels are never expansions - they're clip art

It's a reskinned BF4 that they forced the Dead Space team to work on. EA can eat my scrotum for that glitchy unplayable mess that came from the sweat of my culo that they have the audacity to call a game.

While I agree with everything you said, it probably will be :(
