DICE on building games with soul

CVG - Is the military FPS genre showing some early signs of decline? The YouTube views of the first Battlefield 4 trailer suggest the skies aren't so cloudy: nearly four million people have viewed the video in under three days. (Battlefield 4, Dice, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

BF4 is kind of a bad example.

I love the bf series but it's the last thing they should attribute to having any soul. DICE shoulda maybe used Mirrors Edge as an example of a game they made instead.

It is huh, good im not the only one, game just feels and looks like bf3...

I guess I'm the only one who thought the characterisation in that 17min demo was awesome, and I don't even play FPS's.

Of Course it is a Bad Example...

In a world financial crisis, as it is possible to create a game so powerful that we have to buy a computer quite expensive to get in running conditions ....!! better to make a game like COD same engine 10 Years ago (most of gamers do not have to spent money) ... and we earn millions ... ehehehe

Give me a break ........... :)

I think BF4 can have a soul.

So far looks like DICE has put a lot of effort into a great depth of player immersion for BF4.

If your playing a game and you have emotions for the NPC's and feel as if your really apart of something then yeh that game has soul.

Games with soul and EA go together like night and day.
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   920d ago
BF3 single player didn't have soul.
Detoxx  +   920d ago
It has like 8 million views atm.
Donnieboi  +   920d ago
Views gives it "soul"?
Sparticus_1  +   920d ago
if DICE wants soul they need to go back to their roots of BF....worse move they ever made was getting bought out by EA....EA sucks the life out of anything..

"I think there's a weird dialogue in the games community where linear means bad and non-linear means good"

Expect a quick time event for submarines. Mash X/A to propel torpedo, press R1/RT to detonate.

They need to release a game with soul before they comment on making one.

Mirrors edge had soul.
Bf3 definitely did not.
But bf4 looks like a good improvement.... Let's hope.
