      For the folks wondering "Early access to game launch" is one week early (October 15th)

      Cross-gen upgrade as a "premium incentive" in special editions of games is my absolute least favorite marketing ploy of this latest console transition. Either wait to buy the game on next gen, pay extra to upgrade to it, or buy the game twice. Gross.

      Want to play. Hyped to play. But the whole release and pre-order scheme seems so slimy. I really feel like I should wait a bit because this game has great potential to be a hot mess upon release.

      Would love to get in on the ground floor and be pArt of that exclusive club but I think ima wait a few months before going all in.

        IIRC Battlefield has always been like this as far as early access for pre-orders go. I'm in, don't think it'll be that bad but I guess we'll see. After Cyberpunk my definition of 'buggy' has changed quite a bit.

        its EA, so of course its sleazy and risky.... but my hype lvl may be too much to counter my reason. In anycase, even if i do end up pre ordering, it will at the last possible moment...

        EA/DICE need to prove to me that they have a good fun game before I spend a penny. I'm not pre-ordering anything until I get some actual playtime and can judge for myself, it's on them to win me back as a customer.

          Yep same here. Pretty positive we will get an open beta of some kind like we did on BF1. Was enough for me to know I didn't want to pre-order/buy.
