Battlefield 4 multiplayer demo at E3 2013 to have 64 players
Bye bye COD! https://www.youtube.com/wat... I just had too LOL
Nah, CoD will still sell crazy amounts just because of the name alone. Which is unfortunate, because Battlefield 4 is looking SO much better in just about every way possible.
I have a feeling CoD is STILL going to outsell BF.
"Battlefield 4 multiplayer demo at E3 2013 to have 64 players" So did Battlefield 3. I do hope they have 64 players for next gen systems however, they have no reason not to do it this time around.
If it's on running 64 players on PS4 (especially PS4 since that's going to be my new main console) or X1, then they'll have my cash.
Well, Planetside 2 is running over 2000 and is coming to the PS4...sooo...I think 64 is a given for both consoles. DICE did say they could do it on the PS3 and Xbox 360, but the graphics would have taken a hit and they didn't want that. I would love to see some huge maps in Battlefield 4 with 256 players like MAG. One can dream right?
Normally I'd play the devil's advocate against the ps4 but ya... After putting in a few months of planetside 2. 64 players is a joke.
Hopefully it'll be longer than the bf3 one, the trailer was really shot, and this year I hope to see a proper demo.
People will have hands on with it,not sure if multiplayer or single tho
Isn't bf4 coming out on current and next gen consoles? I thought it was confirmed that it would be 24 on current gen and 64 on next gen. Could be wrong tho.
Bf3 on ps3 had 24 players That wasn't an issue though The biggest issue onmps3 is hit detection lag, is so annoying Hopefully next gen they fix this on ps4 and on xbone or I'm not purchasing
Ps4 is made for mmo so 64 player death matches should be a breeze.
What are you smoking? You can't compare both because the graphics and some other complexities of BF4 are WAY better than MMO's. *Not saying MMO are bad, but it's completely different*. It's the opposite of a breeze. But I have to say, as a PC gamer, if PS4 runs with 64 players, I will be quite impressed with the system.
Well, it's not that hard honestly. The current consoles could do it, it would just make them have to turn the GFX down.
The amount of players has little to do with the console and more to do with the game.
Cod better bring something to the table other than a dog and an old gen engine which they unsuccessfully claim is actually next gen. That, or I'm willing to predict a shift in what title claims the most sales next gen.
people will still ride the COD train, the people the buy the same game every year don't know any better
Sounds good. But if I were getting a PS4 I would be more interested in Planetside 2, which is a better Battlefield game than Battlefield itself! Plus it's F2P.
I like Planetside 2 and Battlefield, while they are similar they both have qualities which set them apart, for those not wanting to buy Battlefield 4 however Plantside 2 is the closest experience you will get and yes it's free. I'll be getting Battlefield 4 as well as continuing to play Planetside 2 however
Next gen fish is not looking so next gen. Bf4 FTW.
now just give me a theater mode and ill sell my soul like ghostrider did to DICE!
Hopefully the share feature sony have will reduce any need for a theater mode, however we need to know more information before that call can be made.
wait, WAIT, did they confirm 64 players on Ps4!? or... then again Ps4 is up first on monday so i may have answered my own question!
Looks like lower rez, lower player count, lower quality shadows on XBOXONE version. From the lastest news, having massive problems with ESRam yields and it'll be underclocked.
For PC and next gen consoles? If so, yay :D
Pc might be more this time round
If it isn't more than 64 players on PC then I'm skipping it. No point in buying BF3.5 when I already have BF3.
It's about the optimal number of players for the map size really. Too many and it's a cluster floor, too few and you running around to much with no action. I'm sure Dice could put 300 players on PC but then the game would suffer.
They ought to double the player count on PC by now. I remember when I was playing 128 players on Battlefield 2142 more than half a decade ago, and they were some of the most epic battles I can remember.
PS4 is going to be 720p but 64 players right? i heard 1080p and like 32 but idk whats the deal here?
There's no official word yet. Old rumours indicated that they were targeting 720p with 64 players on PS4 and One.
The old rumor also said it was running Frostbite 2. It's Frostbite 3 now. So I could be possible.
I was a Cod fan back in 07,but i´m a gamer first,i can see when a game is bad and other choises are available in the market,quantity is not the same as quality... The new batllefield looks really good and other franshises are appering,Destiny looks amazing,free-for-play games are being devoloped as we speak,the time to give a chance to other studios is past due and i belive Cod will die in the next gen as it should died in the end of the last.
Hope they show it on PC.
i hope they show the ps4 version without telling people then say you liked that ah well this is the pc 4k version running on a beast.
