The video above is apparently running in Ultra Mode, and showcases the highest graphics mode you can set the game to run at. So far, the Ultra Mode footage looks about the same in Battlefield 4 as it did in Battlefield 3.
Is it just me or is youtube just completely not capable of showing this game in ultra, even on original. I downloaded the BF4 17 minute singleplayer gameplay, 4gb 1080p direct capture. It looks 1000x better than any gameplay video on youtube. youtube sucks for anything over 720p, it's just not good enough.
Youtube requires transcoding and that messes up the original source. It does that to make every video be 30 frames and to compress it for faster buffer, that's why even at 1080p you can still see macroblocking. This is why I always thought that putting video comparisons of games on Youtube it's pointless.
Thanks...I've never known why they don't put out links to direct feed so we really get a good look. @Cooguy1212 I'll look into creatoscast too.
At first I thought it looked like Team Fortress 2.
Where'd you get that video from? I'd like to download it...
There ya go. 60 fps as well. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... You'll notice the difference is so big. It's so annoying that all these developers make these great games, and spend alot of time crafting a trailer to have all the quality sucked out of it by YouTube. Why don't they offer better quality downloads on all trailers? What could be the harm.
People need to start learning about Creatorscast. It only goes up to 1080p I believe but it supports 60fps and looks miles better than Youtube's quality.
Yes I just shot a rpg in your face but you are still in tact even more so you are still a live and has just knifed me and killed me. The realism in this game is phenomenal.
Youtube sucks for every fast paced gameplay video.
Yea they need to be putting 1080p videos of direct feed on the net via their own website. I'm probably in the 1% but we lost HD cables for Xbox 360 back in 2008 and never bought new ones ( lazy I know), so I've been gaming this whole gen NOT in HD. Meaning I've been playing BF3 Not in HD, Fifa...NOT in HD, COD NOT in HD. Next gen is going to be amazing for me considering the huge upgrade I'm looking at vs most everyone else. I've never been a graphics snob. Still love N64/SNES/GBA graphics and also old pc game iso style graphics. HD is awesome, but I don't NEED it to have fun in a game.
well thank god both next gen consoles will bring an HDMI cable.
I feel like I need to tell you that if you live in the UK, they sell HDMI cables in Poundland =p Got one for a student house, looks the same as any other HDMI cable. No excuse not to get one now! =P
Just get an HDMI cable man, they sell them on overstock for like $3 each. It is good to have fun playing a game, but so much better when it looks infinitely better running on a cable that can be found for as little as $3.
I will be playing it on ultra you console guys can enjoy low/medium happy gaming.
Thanks! You too!
Lighting effects look good in in beta form. Since there's no HUD, I know there's a lot of friendly fire
LOL... the console fanboys disagreed with you in droves because they don't have an argument. Sorry guys but it's the truth... unless you get the next-gen versions, which will probably be med-high.
You can choose the file type/quality.
yeah it's pointless to show graphical quality on YouTube. I mean it doesn't even do over 30fps. Direct feed is the only way to go.
Well firstly that's single player..which is always better looking..
If you look close, you can see the quality. It shows, you just need to train your eye to see what's been degraded due to the video source.
Yeah, you just need to look at the ground to prove that. So grainy. edit: mind you, the grass looks good.
I can tell a game looks good on youtube, but yeah, it's really hard to tell how good. I think the only way to tell if it actually looks better than bf3 is a side by side comparison on youtube, and that might not even work.
This setting really shows how the BF4 is lacking textures and still the same with old BF maps, not detailed enough.
This is Alpha test footage not indicative of the final product. That's why there are limited textures. Perhaps you missed this... (which is from the E3 Beta build) http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Game looks better here than that last article showcasing like 10 secs of "exclusive" gameplay. Game looks like it will have excellent graphics but doesnt look up and beyond bf3 on Ultra. I am sure though the scale of the maps are probably much better and more dynamic things like huge building collapsing is what will be the main difference from 3 to bf4.
The scale will definitely be more impressive. But I'm willing to bet we won't see the difference between it and BF3 until we can *feel* it. Playing the game and being immersed in the world is the only surefire way to judge the game's visual quality.
That's the Alpha version and it looks like they haven't even added most of the textures to the map
This gen/next gen, is all about the small things getting better. All the amazing graphics will be in the small details we may not have noticed before and may not notice right away initially. Over time ( 2-4 years) we will look back on what we have now and be able to notice the difference pretty clearly.
Is it just me or does this look just like BF3? I am a huge battlefield fan and support it 100% over COD but it doesn't look to me like a graphical leap like Killzone is taking. Maybe I will just wait till it releases to hold judgement. Either way, my pre order is paid in full and waiting till the day I can pick it up.
If anyone wants to share some true hi res/fps vids you're more than welcome, lol. 60fps is a BIG difference. The animations in this game are nearly flawless - at least in the single-player.
When does the PS3 beta for BF 4 start? it has to be soon..
video is pointless because the full game will look way different then the alpha/beta versions.
this looks like alpha gameplay, many textures are missing, I 100% guarantee the game will look much much better than this!
you said basically the same thing i did be for you.
great minds my friend, great minds
Still not as fun as Unreal Tournament was in 1999 alternate fire rocket launcher FTW!
Shame no more sci-fi shooters exist anymore. Just boring military ones with the same exact weapons across every game.
"no more sci-fi shooters exist" Lol, that's not remotely true.
Boring military shooters? Like Mass Effect?
UT99, Quake 3, Counter-Strike, Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, etc. Those classic FPS's are the best.
Too bad they're also making it for current-gen which will ruin everything. Hopefully they go all out with the pc version like they did for bf3: no cares about the console players.
If a building collapsed, wouldn't there be more rubble and less sand/dirt like it is on that map??
Have you seen the videos from 9/11, layers and layers of dust was on the ground most of the people that were on the streets were all grey because of all that dirt
Games always look better after Youtubedowloader on HD, on an actual TV.
looks sooooo coollll. Best video game graphic i've evr seen
Not impressed... Since it's "Ultra Settings" I expected a whole new level of quality, In a technical level, I expected something like Crysis 3 by now... The key word is "technical" guys.
Hit my disagree button guys. This game looks boring as hell and I DO NOT HATE BF. I'm just saying there's just not a lot going on here that we haven't already seen from this engine and the game design. I may be preaching to the choir here, but what is so enthralling about these types of games? All I see is red dot, muzzle fire, white, brown, tan, white, brown, tan, gray, green!, white, gray, brown, tan, red dot, muzzle fire, white, gray, brown, etc... kill me but this is just not appealing to me. I will wait until I see the finished product before laying out me cash. There's just too many other good games competing for my hard earned cash these days. @greedbear and HardcoreGamer - I did not disagree w/ you guys just for the record.
I kinda agree. I do like BF but these AAA big budget games are getting really bland. Also as far as graphics go it looks nice but I'm really not a fan of ambient occlusion. To me it doesn't look good it looks like there's just black fuzz around everything.
Do you need little kids, rainbows, imaginary creatures and boys that look like girls to enjoy it?
