This isn't the best map to show off the graphics imo it's such a bland setting, not much going on but it still looks amazing.

snipab8t1004d ago

I'd like them to show off some more destruction, I'm not talking about that scripted building falling down, I'm talking about walls being blown up and stuff like BBC2

skept3k1004d ago

I'd like to see more scenarios like with the underground pillars taking out a section of the road above to bring down a tank. That shit is badass.

jayswolo1003d ago

that wasn't scripted :)

narked1003d ago

Agreed, somehow I prefer the destruction on bad company 2, even to bf3. You could easily level buildings in a whole map.

RegorL1003d ago

Buildings were smaller in Bad Company 2
- could you really take down ALL large buildings?

SideShort1003d ago

It's really give or take. BC2 maps were more like flat, wide fields with makeshift neighborhoods you could destroy. BF3 really conquered the natural feel of an urban landscape. I kind of preferred it over the destructible houses sprinkled here and there.

GuyThatPlaysGames1003d ago

All of Battlefield's destruction has always been scripted. None of it is real-time damage. The pieces are already predetermined on how each single piece will break everytime the exact same way.

abzdine1003d ago

i didn't know they made a N64 version of BF4!! looks aweful!!!
Killzone is the definite monster FPS

Definitely looks amazing. The partical effects in particular, the water, fire, explosions, and smoke all look crazy good. The physics as well... the way that tank bounced on the suspension as it was rolling... really cool.

The textures themselves look a little bland and colorless, but that's being displayed on my crappy Dell monitor... so it will undoubtedly look 10x better on the HDTV...

Filling my cryogenic chamber, I'm sick of the present.

StoutBEER1003d ago

Hhaha awesome malokevi. Count me in on the cryo!

SignifiedSix911003d ago

it looks bland, because there are no textures on the map. They didn't include them in the alpha beta, because they wanted people to focus on the gameplay and bugs, not the graphics lol.

So yeah, its not your monitor :P

malokevi1003d ago

Whats the point of showing Hyper-settings, then? I mean, if this really is the highest visual setting... they might wanna add some textures? lol.

If what your saying is true, than that's reassuring.

FantasticBoss1003d ago (Edited 1003d ago )

Actually guys the textures are so bland up top because the world is covered in ash. If you look closer you can see a few spots where color peeks through,like the signs up on the building as he comes up the stairs. Basically everything is caked in a layer of ash and concrete dust.

Plus the level kind of looks weirdly sparse and unfinished for a modern Battlefield map. Probably due to being early footage.

this is a pre alpha mode that was leaked few weeks back... this is the same map DICE showed at e3 for its multiplayer reveal.

Ashunderfire861004d ago (Edited 1004d ago )

Yep and its playable... 64 players playable in the EA booth with the big Battlefield 40 sign. I was there too! If you wanted to play the game, you have to be first come first served; or the developers will give you a ticket and the time for the next set of 64 players. You have the choice to play with the X1 controller(Yes I confirmed that yes you will be playing X1 controller on PC) or PC keyboard.

Lior1004d ago

It's not the alpha, the alpha was a blank canvas alpha

Mrmagnumman3571003d ago

I can't believe how long it took for someone to notice the lack of textures... this is completely unfinished. This really shouldn't be an article, because this isn't really ultra settings.

JsonHenry1004d ago

Wow. What a horrible video. The compression on it even at a 1080p stream made it look worse than BF3 on utlra settings. :/

Just take uncompressed screenshots and post those please.

oof461004d ago

Youtube videos will always have compression problems no matter what the source.

Unfortunately, uncompressed screenshots and videos are HUGE.

Salooh1003d ago

Do you know any site that give us uncompressed videos ?. :D

I would love to see the difference.

papashango1003d ago

back in the day sites like file front or fileplanet would have just hosted the video for download.

Sometimes I miss that.

aim4dabushiz1004d ago

well it's bland because the building fell, leaving everything under that dusty smog... that being said, i agree that those brighter color pallets are a plus and it pains me the say thats that's the one thing COD does right!

RAYMEISTER1003d ago

Looks like the brown stuff that comes out of my butt

andrewsqual1003d ago

Lol "Exclusive Battlefield 4 multiplayer gameplay shows how the game looks in “Ultra” settings, releases footage on Youtube at 2000kbps." Lol.
Give the damn video to Gamersyde and they will let us download and stream it at its true quality :)

3-4-51003d ago (Edited 1003d ago )

Correct. I think they probably chose that clip because of the particle effects and amount of things on screen whilst also being in ultra graphics setting.

Can't believe I just typed whilst.

JunioRS1011003d ago

it's alpha anyways, no polish at all yet

bayport1003d ago

It's hard to show off anything on youtube. Games always look so much better outside of youtube recordings. Youtube compresses too much, even on 1080p

Syntax-Error1003d ago

I wanna see a map with some foliage

sak5001003d ago

Didn't show much in terms of ultraness. Also what's with no HUD? Looked pretty bland.

ovnipc1003d ago

This its old. And its un finish. This its like 8 months old video. Its clear that its un finish.

nutcrackr1003d ago

The skyscraper fell, so there is ash on the ground.

AuToFiRE1003d ago

What if.. There isnt anything better to show?

YouTube is so bad, it makes every game look like games to me. I downloaded the Singleplayer 17minute demo from eurogamer 1080p 60fps, that looks like gameplay. YouTube just never looks as good as the real thing.

CRAIG6671004d ago

should have gone to specsavers...

MidnytRain1003d ago

Lol, how are you gonna give a biased opinion then say "No according to you" when someone else gives you theirs...

_LarZen_1004d ago

The color palette wants me to tear my eyes out.

Neixus1004d ago

It's gray because a building fell down, thus creating lots of dust around the city

DeadlyFire1004d ago

It will look better in the final builds. I expect heavy marketing at Gamescom up until release.
