Supposly there is a patch going to be released with it also:

BF2.se has the word that on the day of release for Battlefield 2: Special Forces (22nd November), there will be a patch for both the expansion-pack players, aswell as those who are still on vanilla Battlefield 2. Although there's not much information in English regarding what the v1.12 patch will affect, it seems that at first BF2 and BF2:SF players won't be able to be battle on the same server. However, after applying the patch this will be possible.

Meh, i was pretty hyped about this and have it on pre order but now I don't know. I'm sorta BF2 played out atm, especially since I have been spending most of my gaming time with WOW. Still though, I'll probably pick it up tomorow after work. I havent played Bf2 in like 2 weeks.

11-21-05, 03:42 PM
Got a lot of BF2 to play before I pick this up...

edit: oh yeah, and addicted to WoW. In fact, I'm getting the shakes right now! *logs in*

I'm interested in it, especially since I found out you should be able to play online with it with non-expansion pack owners. Now I'm wishing I jumped on the deal when Outpost.com had it on preorder for $20 with free shipping, but oh well, now I get to wait and see how it turns out before I get it.

11-21-05, 03:47 PM
Some people have it already. I am hearing pretty positive things about it :)

11-21-05, 04:25 PM
I just started playing BF2 again like last week, and I still get hard locks and CTD's. I HOPE this patch will help smooth out some problems this game has.

does the patch fix that "random shot" crap with the pee shooter sniper rifles?

Preloaded it through Ea's downloader a couple of days ago. I did however not get a cdkey, wouldn't this be needed or will I get it on release day? Anyone know how this works?

So what do you think? Is the gameplay vastly different from BF2?

11-22-05, 01:46 PM
Haven't found a multiplayer server yet, just toyed around in singleplayer.
Doesn't feel all that different, some new guns, some new vehicles. You can now use a gasmask because some maps have gas. Kind of cool, night vision is cool aswell. Final verdict when I find a multiserver :)

11-22-05, 03:48 PM
So are they ever going to fix the widescreen support in this game? You can set the resolution via command line ofcourse but the point of view is not set properly. The image is stretched, which sucks.

11-22-05, 09:53 PM
I just picked it up :D

11-22-05, 10:00 PM
I just picked it up :D

Bastard! Where?

Lol, I'm just getting over my second round of WOW addiction. X3 and Dragon Quest VIII have been helping me ween off. I think I'll kick up some BF2 right now and grab the expansion tommorow if I can find it.

To my guildies on Lightninghoof...you will be missed...slightly.

11-22-05, 10:00 PM
I got it at Best Buy, most of them have it in stock.

11-22-05, 11:06 PM
Yeah, just checked. My local BB has it in.
I'll see you on the Battlefield soldier! (or maybe not...it's dark out there!)

11-22-05, 11:07 PM
Yea its dark! I really love the grappling hook though! It puts a new twist on the gameplay :D

11-22-05, 11:41 PM
I havent played BF2 in over a month... I think I'll wait till this gets a bit cheaper. $30 for an expansion seems a tad CRAZY to me. The only expansion Ive purchased EVER was Road To Rome for BF1942, and thats only because it was $20 and I was totaly hooked on BF at the time.

I want to play this but meh... I just dont have time any more :(

11-23-05, 12:04 AM
Bah, I can't find any servers yet...

11-23-05, 09:21 AM
How vast is the SP part ? is it any evolving over the original ?

11-23-05, 11:25 AM
Nope, its basically the same thing. Only this time its only like 5 maps :)

11-23-05, 11:25 AM
more screens please - some night combat and some gas nade shots please!!!!

11-23-05, 12:45 PM
Just picked it up at BB. It's taking forever to download the damn patch though.
Gotta go to work now, but I will rock the special forces when I get home later.
So tempting to call in sick, but with a holiday tommorow, that would look bad. :(

played the single player for a second...the gas effect is crazy! Pretty cool.
