For once good news for Battlefield fans, amongst much bemoaning of suboptimal server performance and numerous other woes, the Megalodon has landed. Certainly enough to put a smile on my face again. DICE is awesomesauce, even if there's a bitter aftertaste of late. Anyways, here it goes...

Battlefield 4 Players Have Finally Found The Megalodon

It landed on a boat.

For once good news for Battlefield fans? The game had its problems, but come on now. And that is, one giant freaking shark. I wanna see it in person.

That's a big ass shark. I assume that's the type of stuff you'll see in SOMA.

Its troubles depend on platform. For the longest time I had no problems on PS4, except for the occasional, and frankly rather rare rubberbanding lag, while the game was riddled with bugs on PC. Currently rubberbanding lag is very widespread on PS4, even extending into the wee hours of the night, which is unusual. Dunno how it is on other platforms right now, but when I'm getting rubberbanding lag at 2 AM on a weeknight, playing on what's supposed to be local servers, something's not quite right. EA/DICE definitely got their work cut out for them.

I really wish more games would have massive sea monsters in them. Even though I'm absolutely terrified of them.You better not disappoint me again with ES VI, Bethesda! (And yes, I know sharks aren't monsters :P)

Anyway, that was awesome. Really cool how giant he is. I love easter eggs like this. I hope someone posts a video of it from in the boat.

So good, but what exactly triggers it? I didn't see an answer in the video. I'm guessing its just being in a boat at that location or something, but that makes me wonder what took so long in finding it.

Something tells me that the size of this Megalodon has been greatly exaggerated. Still god damn cool, though.

I feel like Futurama Professor walking in saying "GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!"

It looked like it said ten people have to be around that buoy.

Last time I tried to play the tanks could no longer shoot their mini guns. Till basic gameplay like that is fixed this isn't going to get me to boot the game up.

#23 Posted by Random45 (1119 posts) -

Hah! I was wondering if they would add this easter egg in ever since that whole 'hunt' a while back. I'm glad DICE went ahead and did this.

Kind of sad it's just in new DLC and not a months-buried secret that has only now been found.
