Battlefield 4 multiplayer gameplay shows “epic” 720˚ combat knife kill
knife kills looks more buggy than epic...
Epic seizure knife kill.
Yeah, that's that whole "looking straight down then moving the mouse one degree in any direction" kind of thing.
this game is really looking like poop.. As things are going right now i think Killzone: SF is gonna be the king. First it looks next-gen and everyone knows how KZ multiplayer is. Now it's up to Guerrilla to make a great SP campain and support it post release with updates, maps, weapons...
@abzdine Just go away and play COD its a alpha. You know your a cod fanboy dont even bother commenting on BF videos. Your just trolling just to make yourself feel better about the yearly COD trash you buy.
Well, we know where the CoD kids went to...
Well that just doesn't look good at all to me and maybe it will change by launch, I don't know. Call me crazy, but the more gameplay I see from these kinds of games (which looks warmed over from what we've all grown accustom to), the more I can't wait for KZ:SF. I know, I'm aware of the hypocrisy w/i my own statement regarding shooters, but to my eyes, KZ:SF just oozes with graphic fidelity and the colors seem to burst right off the screen not to mention the lighting looks spectacular. That's all.
That isn't even close to final build though.
Killzone oozes with graphics fidelity?? Yea, when compared to PS3 games. Go watch on youtube "Battlefield 4: Best moments" and you'll see how blinded by sony love you truly are. Or do you consider bright flashy colors "fidelity"? If so, then I got a game right up your alley. It's Blood Dragon. It's got so much "fidelity" your brain will explode. lol.
That's this "quality" game. Oh wait, "it's not finished" is the excuse for the bugginess.
Excuse? It's PRE Alpha you fuckin moron. Nobody defend this retard. When you all say Killzone is going to beat Battlefield in multiplayer, you are lying to yourself and everyone else on the internet. Ive played Killzone. Guess what, boring ass gameplay I left it after two weeks. Battlefield has had me hooked for over two YEARS. Check my Battlelog, Gamertag is StoutBEER, and I have played over 600 hours in BF3. Battlefield has also overtaken Halo as my favorite online shooter, which is insane considering ive played Halo since Halo 2. And you're trying to tell me Killzone will dethrone Battlefield? It will not, this is not opinion its fact. You Playstation fanboys are looking even worse than Xbox fanboys at the moment. And I have seen some crazy Xbox fanboys.
@Stoutbeer Someone clearly has no life lol. Go outside once in a while. Never did I EVER say Killzone is a good game at all. Since when am I a fanboy when I have both systems? Someone is the idiot here clearly
Are people blind? I can't believe they can't see that this has a lot of missing textures/buggy. This is still the alpha beta that was shown before. Seriously, I don't know if people are trolling or are they just really stupid.
Just really stupid man. Welcome to n4g.
Just looks like screen tearing during the knife encounter. Until Dice locks that down it is what is a Beta.
That's some CoD type ish right there
COD doesn't have bugs like that. I mean they use a stable engine with minor upgrades each year.
That had better be a glitch, and it better be patched before release. If I wanted to play CoD I would go buy that instead.
He's just running and searching for people to kill and when he saw one he shot him then had an opportunity to knife someone. He's playing like many others. The game is not a sim to have the right way to play it. Call of duty didn't create attacking gameplay. It's just the only thing that call of duty do . When i attack i'm always the first in all games and when i follow my team mates i always kill less . Same can applied to the objectives in the way i play. Even the last of us that depend on team mates to survive i still attack a lone and always be the first . It's just a way to play the game and it's not forbidden Just my opinion hope you don't take it seriously :P ..
That has literally nothing to do with what I said. Like, at all.
Sorry. My fault XD . I thought you mean the way he play . I just realised what you mean which are bugs and glitichs..
Why wouldn't it be patched? It's PRE Alpha.
This is most definitely not pre-alpha stage. If it were, the game would NOT be coming out this year. I would hope it's in the beta stage at this point...
Yes it is Snookie... god I hate you for that username. Remember when BF3 Beta had come out with all those bugs and people were worried? That was already an old build they released to the public, the final game was already done and mostly bug free. The "beta" was more of a demo than beta.
Really? There's nothing like that in COD. Damn your BF fanboys really just blame everything on COD.
I know, it's a hell of alot worst in CoD. Damn you "CoD" fanboys think it's the best game ever created and keep buying the same rehash every year. That being said, I've only owned CoD4 and MW2 before I got sick of the franchise. I sold em' both.
ikr .. its COD fault , They caused that glitch.
Sir, I hate to tell you this, but CoD does have Bugs. It has Alpha and Beta versions and those are both filled with bugs. I am sorry to burst your bubble, but Call of Duty isn't perfect.
How does this remind you from cod?
Careful. If you use logic or reason you'll get a dozen disagrees.
All the CoD kiddies pulling off 720 knife kills and no scopes? Have you ever tried to watch CoD videos on YouTube?
One of the most pointless posts today.
The day is still young...
The campaign for BF4 looks awesome, but the multiplayer looks like BF3.5, which isn't necessarily bad, but just like CoD, it doesn't really warrant a day one purchase. Personally, I'm more interested in Titanfall.
Are you Socom fan? Heard of H-Hour?
I'm a backer!
@BattleAxe Niice :) Me too!
Same here. The 3rd person view reminded me of Socom if for just a small bit.
Super screen tear attack
That made me think of the old pokemon for some reason.
It's called Pre-Alpha......
pre-alpha? lol. I've been playing Battlefield for a decade. If you know anything about it. There has never been a dramatic increase in performance or visuals from alphas/betas to final release. In fact they've been using betas as glorified demos since 2142.
@papashango Yup. BF3 was pretty much an early beta when it was released, filled with bugs upon bugs. Dice is horrible when it comes to polish. They did the same thing with BC2, the bugs, performance issues, and hit reg weren't fixed until over a year after release.
Hence the PRE Alpha... I agree about the beta part, but the graphics in this video are obviously not final...
Game comes out in October. Unless the footage is old it shouldn't be pre alpha. Also the game will be awesome anyway.
They're not gonna release the game with missing textures and those kind of bugs. Seriously, this footage looks very much like the Alpha from before. It's the alpha.
doesn't even look anywhere near as good or as smooth as bf3 on pc this better be crappy ps4 or xbox 1 gameplay the pc version of bf3 STOMPS on this in every possible way
It's alpha gameplay. Why are you comparing it to a released product.
All I can say is that you are very stupid person.
Pc version knife script confirmed :D.
Watch people mess with the settings of that lol.
Awesome, so I can pullz off a duper 720 quick spin complete with laser attachment knife ultramanz camo 360 quick dope da scope melee kill n get ur noobzesesz tags muwhuhauwhuhwuwhuaha. In all seriousness though, just keep releasing more gameplay videos. The more exposure of actual in game content with fan feedback, etc. and all that jazz will only help the game to play better upon release for all systems.
There's nothing epic about melee kills in shooters anyway. The mechanic is either gimmicky, or abused. The only time it tends to "work" is when the knife is either not a one hit kill weapon, or is restricted to a certain class. More developers should really start taking note of the phrase, "never bring a knife to a gun fight."
Melee from behind is important for stealth but if someone has noticed you then you should not be able to grab your knife and swing before they can shoot. I think that a knife should be an equipable weapon and no knife button should be present.
If stealth is a prevalent feature of the game, then perhaps the knife could work, but even then, it would need restrictions, like 1) only works from behind, and 2) only works if you are playing as a stealth class. Every player in the game, regardless of class/load-out, should not be granted a one-hit kill weapon that uses no ammo, is guaranteed to kill as long as you land the attack, and makes virtually no noise.
2 hits from the front, one long one from the back, leaving room to get shoot -while doing the take down. CoD is the one hit horse.
BFBC is one hit melee, so is BFBC2 and BF3 is one hit from behind. Something to note is that when I was talking about the restrictions, I was implying that the knife was a specific-use item, rather than a weapon that can be used whenever. You would have to be behind the enemy, and either an on-screen indicator or positioning yourself correctly, (or spamming the button when behind the enemy) would allow you to use it all, so no other attacks allowed. This way the knife has a much more defined role, adds a higher skill ceiling, and helps to eliminate abuse and/or griefing.
i was proper hyped for this game but the more i see the shitter it looks and now plays
Not sure if confirmed or not but does anyone else wish that they use the actual sights the real gun uses in Battlefield 4? For example the L85 uses the SUSAT sight.
It looks a lot better than the "stretchy neck" bug that was in the bf3 beta lol
Screening tearing - 720 combat knife kill right there
Are we not 2 months away from release and this is what they got to show still? They better step up their game. Dont send me a message saying oh its a alpha. I obviously can see its the same footage we saw from E3. Its the point of look how close we are now to having the product and this is what we get to look at. As far as my opinion goes if EA/Dice release a bugged out/glitch heavy game again on release like they did on bf3 im taking it back to the store and sending them a merry tweet of take the game and shove it where it belongs. As a consumer no way in hell am i going to sit back and get another buggy game on release that takes over a year of patching to even get it half way decent. I swear that last patch they put out has made the game worse on ps3 as far as the games stability, servers, hit detection(especially on snipers with bolts-get suppressed and a guy 10m in front of you wont take a single hit marker) Hd textures not loading(cant count how many times i joined a server and a hour later the game still looks like im playing ps1), map glitches, bug exploits and so on.. Try telling dice about it now or give them video proof of whats going wrong and they will send EA knocking on your youtube account telling you to shut down. I guess they dont want you to remind them they still have unfinished business to attend to. This is just my opinion, if you dont like it dont message me i dont care what you have to say. I'm not getting in some nerdy keyboard war over words.
