Really enjoyed the world being fleshed out, outside of purely the battles.
I always used to enjoy the little map descriptors in the early games, for the historical settings in BF1942 and BFVietnam, to the fictional ones in BF2 and BF2142, so this kind of thing is really cool.
Will need to listen to it again to really give feedback, but I really liked someone elses comment regarding news reports. Maybe the same stories regarding events that cause, or result from, the players to be on a map, but from different sources with their own bias (not outright propaganda, but leaning toward their nation) where the truth is hidden within.
Especially if you then split up who could access them so the community would have to come together to work out the truth. For example, those in the EU get a source in that area, NA would of course be the USA etc while everyone gets to hear the message from the Big Bad.
What you described is what we have in the game at launch.
