Let's bring an update for the ps3/360 version.

I doubt there will be one. It takes like 2 weeks to get a patch through MS and Sony's certification process.

Yaaaay Finally!!! Cant wait to see if it fixes my game.

Bring TITAN MODE Damn it!!!

This would be the perfect time to bring it back too. With the Ocean Warfare they keep blabbing about.

Two Aircraft Carriers as TITANS=EPICNESS

I think they will throw it in Premium DLC pack at some point.
RadioActiveTwinky  +   410d ago
I hope so. It was the most fun I had in 2042 back in the day.

Its funny we are only 29 years away from that year lol. Hopefully the mechs are coming soon lol.

playing this game made me realize that i need to get rid of my gtx470 and upgrade
Buljo  +   413d ago
I'd hold off to see if more games require that upgrade.

Upgrading for Battlefield only is a big, BIG mistake, one I've unfortunately done. I upgraded my entire freaking platform and the game didn't get any more enjoyable, I only could say "Hey, I get 60+ fps and you don't!" to my friends, and that's not a reason to upgrade.
bumnut  +   413d ago
You serious? My SLI 570's struggled with lots of games, a 470 doesn't cut it these days.

I couldn't even max Medal Of Honor with SLI 570's @ 2560 x 1440 because they don't have enough VRAM.
KwietStorm  +   413d ago
It's not gonna hurt to upgrade from a gtx470 regardless.
MidnytRain  +   413d ago
What? You play at 60fps because it's more responsive and more realistic. Not for the stupid bragging reason you just gave. You don't buy something better to brag. You buy something better because it's BETTER.

Buljo  +   413d ago
Nope, runs the same. Major CPU hog, stuttering, still there.
RadioActiveTwinky  +   413d ago
What CPU and what OS are you using?
Buljo  +   413d ago
i5 3570k @ 4GHz, Windows 8 x64. HD7850 2GB OC.
Coach_McGuirk  +   413d ago
yuck

I've got a nice rig, which ran it on ultra bar the MSAA but i think mines got worse now after the patch. Typical...
bumnut  +   413d ago
really? I am downloading it now and was excited until I read your comment!
bumnut  +   413d ago
Runs better for me, I get the same framerate in ultra as I got on high before the patch.

Still a CPU hog though.

i7 950@3.6
12GB RAM
GTX 780
2560 x 1440

Win 7 or 8 ??
bumnut  +   412d ago
Windows 7
RadioActiveTwinky  +   410d ago
Interesting... that sucks though. The patch really helped my set up a bit. I am thinking of getting a new gpu but not sure yet.

Currently i am rocking dual 570's. I am thinking of either getting an R9-280 or wait for the R9-290 or just go all out and get a 780.

My cpu is fine at 4.0 fx-8350.

You should be running the game fine. Even when you dropped down to High settings was it still acting up on you?

Have you tried using previous drivers? When I downgraded drivers it actually helped with the patch.
Buljo  +   410d ago
Meh, it doesn't even matter anymore. The problem is probably RAM since I only have 4GB. The CPU usage is a different matter though, it's definitely not something that should happen.

I'm hoping they tone it down for the final release. That will determine whether I will get the game or not.
SoCalledMe  +   413d ago
LIES ! It's still over using CPU ( 100% usage ) and underusing GPU ( laughable % ) and if that wasn't enough there is a battlelog thread about Loading Screen issue , and crush aftherwards , that has 400+ pages and over 8100 responds ( almost over 9000 ! xD ) , and problem exist since OCT 1st , they still havent fixed it so majority of people can't even start the game up on PC O_o th rage curently going o nabttlelog forums is unbelivable
DeadlyFire  +   412d ago
First week launch patch should clear up most of the issues.

I haven't had any problems and I'm using a hd 7750 runs everything smoothly
Faztkiller  +   413d ago
PC beta is such a mess I get from 5-30fps no matter what the settings are ultra or low unplayable for me right now. Disabling 2 core on my CPU helped a little but im gonna wait for a real fix before I play anymore.
sovietsoldier  +   413d ago
runs better then it did but still has some shutter.
Bdxxacjkfs  +   413d ago
If this Beta is sh!t(and it is) I will not buy it. Period!
bumnut  +   413d ago
Don't you understand what a beta is? its a test version, not a demo.
Feralkitsune  +   413d ago
Good, less people spamming the in-game chat with meaningless dribble.
bondsmx  +   413d ago
I have that loading screen crash. Haven't even made it into a game yet? Doesnanyone that has had this issue, does this patch fix it? Been playing on ps3 but I plan on getting it for ps3 then upgrade to ps4 on day 1. Want to check it out on pc to get a better idea of what ps4 is gonna be like..
Dandrydog  +   413d ago
Looking at all the raging PC comments it's no wonder console gamers avoid PC gaming and their twatty super "rig" $2000 computers still suffer numerous issues.
Coach_McGuirk  +   413d ago
Not much better for me, if any at all. Stutters like crazy.

i5 2500k @ 4.5 85-90% usage
gtx 780 1080p 60-65% usage
win 7

All I can say is - don't expect much to change. Battlefield is WAY too CPU intensive ever since Bad Company 2.
LAWSON72  +   412d ago
I am actually enjoying the beta. At first I thought it was kind of disappointing, but the improvements from 3 have really help make it a better experience. I will say though the visuals are not really to impressive and I seriously do not think it is a new engine and just a slightly upgraded frostbite 2, at least it looks like it
