Brilliant game and a brilliant price! Cop it if you dont already have it!
Does progress sync across formats? I'd like a PC copy to go with my new gaming PC, but I've been playing on Xbox.

Dont think so, you have to make a seperate blizzard account on PC
You can link your console account and your Battlenet account, but the only things that are shared between the linked accounts are the Nexus items, ie the Officer D.Va and Oni Genji skins, and the sprays and icons that came with them.
Wow, I literally just bought this from Amazon for £23 - now cancelled :). Thanks
Can anyone clarify differences between standard, origins and GOTY editions. Which should be bought?
No excuse not to jump in now! Getting this when i get home!

Origins edition has a few extra skins but that edition is being replaced by the GOTY edition which includes those skins, plus 10 loot boxes. The extra skins aren't really worth it unless cosmetics is what you're buying into rather than the game itself.
Good price id grab it at this now if your not 100% as it is never on offer.
Thanks, purchased
Is it safe to assume this price is valid until after the free weekend?

Well, it's hard to describe. But today I was feeling really tired at work, so I made myself a hot drink, walked around for a few minutes after which not only did I feel better but I also managed to waste 5 minutes of my otherwise mundane day. Tomorrow, hopefully I'll feel more energised.

Was also tempted by the Amazon deal earlier!

If the free weekend is on then I can actually double check how well this runs on my laptop before paying too...

completely different.
the main competitive mode of the game relies heavily on team work, it is not a run and gun/team death match game. characters are grouped as healers, tanks, dps and support, your team usually needs a balance. it best to get used to at least one character from each group so you can balance with the team you get grouped with.
there are other game modes, but they are very casual and a lot of people use them as a training ground to get used to different characters. don't go in to competitive mode to mess about, you'll get abused, blocked and reported lol.
Heh, I thought this would happen. Great price - bought!
Great price, great game.

Cheapskates... if £16.99 is too much then try Paladins

If you're bored of BF1 because it's not complex or demanding enough, have a look at Rising Storm 2 for a more tactical, tense and demanding game with upto 64 players. If you like the idea of a 5 v 5 game then Rainbow 6 Siege is excellent. My gaming group stopped playing BF1 some months ago, and R6S has become our favourite game, but it is best played with friends. Overwatch is good too, but the total lack of map destruction and emphasis on charging and timing the use of your ultimate ability wasn't really our cup of tea.

Yes should be fine. Well optimised game. Low or ultra settings don't have too much difference between them.

At the same skill level, a mouse player will always be faster than a controller player and so carry a speed/reaction advantage. But unless you're playing competitively you'd probably be just fine.

I want to chill with a controller and if you use a controller on pc you'll get trashed. There isn't even aim assist to help like you get on console.

Aim assist is disabled in the pc version if you use a controller so it would be a lot more difficult.
Will there be additional cost i will have to pay to get the best experience out of the game? Ie addons like map pack
