Here's 28 minutes of Battlefield's 4 alpha multiplayer gameplay with Russian commentary.
Hmm new mode Siege Conquest or just the new name of conquest. I am still waiting to see what the Russian forces will look like. I see the kill cam is back. Can't wait to throw incendiary grenades and finally got to see the revive mechanic. Sadly looks like a wall glitch around 15 minutes in the video.
Lots of comments about graphics. This is an ALPHA video of the game. If you don't understand that, don't comment about graphics, it just makes you look incredibly ill-informed.
Were you saying I mentioned graphics? I understand what an alpha is. They are testing the stability of the games software which is the alpha build. That's why there aren't any textures on most of the environments, because it's pretty much raw source code. The thing is I don't think a lot of console gamers are used to seeing alpha gameplay compared to pre-alpha gameplay. I can't wait for the beta!!!
lol please there won't be any difference between this and the final version.
@MWong No. I know you didn't mention graphics. I just replied at the top so people wouldn't be inclined to continue that train of thought later. It is easier than replying to each and every one.
Absolutely no point uploading it when the graphics are set that low.
Graphics aren't everything!!! I would much prefer fun gameplay then a game thats just nice on the eyes
Gameplay? It looks like more of the same. Graphics will alway be important, meaning they are everything. Infinite would not have as immersive if it were for the graphics.
@ilive & Billy Bones Graphics? "Watch 28 Minutes of Battlefield 4 Alpha Gameplay" ALPHA... A L P H A... do you not know what that means?
what is the deal? This looks like crap.
At alpha stage in development a game is "playable", and not feature complete. The foundation and most of the assets are in place but there is no polish and may have entire features missing like MP, AI, or in this case textures. In beta, the game should be feature complete. Meaning the entire game, features and assets, are complete and present, but its not optimized and will have bugs and glitches. Why does it look like crap? Because it in alpha and not finished yet.
Because gameplay doesn't matter all of the sudden? What do you think they are doing for 1-3 years on the dev kits? Painting ! ?? N4G needs an Alpha article to inform people that dev's don't just snap their fingers and a pretty game appears. There are steps. EX: How do you build a house from scratch ? Would you live in the house that has just a frame and basement and no dry walls or electric ? No. And why? Because it's not finished? Why aren't you making fun of the unfinished house for not having beautiful bricks and siding and wall paper and paint? Because it takes time.
Is this gameplay being run on a toaster?
someone lend this dude a strategy guide!
Looks like more of the same.
Even in alpha, it still looks better than Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Lol @ people who think graphics are everything. Shameful to call yourself a real gamer if you think graphics are everything. I still go back and play games like house of the dead 2,shenmue, legend of dragoon, xenogears, powerstone etc that kick the ish out of games this gen still because they still have amazing aspects to them that made them great to begin with.
FYI it's ok to want amazing graphics on a game like this. The gameplay is going to be solid so it's fine to want it to look amazing. Did u watch the video? The graphics are completely dumbed down yet the framerate is awful. You wouldn't want to go back to play shenmue and find that the graphics were suddenly half as good
Actually I wouldn't care. If the frame rate don't suffer and the gameplay is still what got me hooked in the first place then honestly graphics don't mean junk. I'd rather take a game that has a Good story Good gameplay Good frame rate Good replay value Good writing/scripting Anyday over a game that just looks amazing but is stale and boring.
Did you read the headline? This is the game in the Alpha phase of development. If you don't know, that means this is before Beta testing. Which in turn means they are working on things that are not related to finished, polished graphics. You'd think on a site for GAMERS you'd know this.
@thorstein You'd think they would know what "alpha" means, I certainly thought most gamers did, but we were wrong.
Most fun i had with a video game this summer was playing majoras mask. My n64 still gets plenty of use, dont understand the obsession with amazing graphics myself.
I can't wait for this game! To me I already know the mechanics are basically the same so to me it's all about the graphics. If it wasn't then I would buy the Xbox 360 version
Really? Only reason Im holding out for next gen is for the higher player count.
Lol that's how I know you guys dont pay attention this is alpha gameplay so there's no textures on most of the things in this video. The graphics will improve much more in the final build.
@thorstien do you realize I wasent talking about battlefield but in general because of all the graphics this and that in this topic alone. I honestly don't care what the end graphics of the game are as long as it performs well and does everything else that I care about. I consider graphics like a bonus you would receive on ur paycheck, not nessasarily needed but its great to have it.
This is about testing gameplay and mechanics. Not a graphics test. Seriously people, what do you think alpha means?
There are the 360/Ps3 versions....I'll buy for PS4.
i think it's set to the lowest settings that's why it looks crap !!!
Pretty sure that's not the reason.
Basically bf4 will feel like bf3 and run roughly the same but abit better, soooooo for me graphics are my main thing not because im not a gamer but because the game play will be awesome and sp will have a good story, ooo forgot the 64 maybe 72 online players.
