 The recaptcha thing is really annoying, isn't it? I might have a word with the web guys about it.

We did try to call out all the important functionality in the game's tutorials but it's abundantly clear that they're too easy to miss and once they're dismissed you can't see them again. 


I should clarify that I can't speak for the game as a whole, or indeed Rebellion - I'm just a programmer on the project - but we really are reading all of the feedback and have plans to act upon it. We want everyone to be able to enjoy Battlezone, not just the hardcore fans.

Enuebis, believe me, we understand where you're coming from. I'm sorry that you're finding the game frustrating but we've had plenty of positive feedback too so we can't make sweeping changes that may spoil the game for those folks that are enjoying it.


All I can say right now is that we have changes in the works for a future patch that will make things easier on the lower difficulties and smooth out the spikes. We hope this will be available very soon.

 Don't worry, zelorian74, we won't be making any major changes across the board but we would like to smooth out some of the wrinkles for players who'd like to play on Easy.

I can't really comment on what other titles do but we already use higher-than-native resolution on the standard PS4 version to provide supersampling-based anti-aliasing.

 If you stand up/move away/closer to the camera, and then press-and-hold options, does the view position shift? It should 're-centre' back onto the chair in the default position?

We're on the case, believe me. Difficulty is one of those very tricky things. The last thing we want to do is to make it too easy and spoil the longevity of the game so we're loathe to rush in and make any sweeping changes, but we are monitoring things closely.

 Yeah, having someone with the ammo replenish special ability is extremely useful. Using the Blaster (the backup gun you always have) to kill things should always give you some ammo so sometimes it's useful to switch to it to finish things off even if you don't need to, to replenish your stocks.

 Team composition is definitely important in Battlezone. Having a dedicated healer is a nice thing to have but you can be at risk of putting all your eggs in one basket. Personally, I prefer playing as a light tank, zipping off to hack the weapons factories, etc. That's a risky proposition (I like to dump my rear shield modulator into the front too, for extra riskiness) but lowering the AI power level by hacking their support structures can make things a -lot- easier.
