Battlefield 4 – DICE talk shooter fatigue & PS4 touchpad grenade "flicking"

OPM: Bigger doesn’t always mean better. So while it may not do the numbers of Activision’s mega-franchise, DICE’s take on multiplayer warfare, Battlefield 4, is often thought of as the critic’s choice. One for the purist, it values teamwork and tactics over twitch shooting and teabagging. Such an approach has garnered it a justifiably large and passionate community – and a reputation to uphold as we move to PS4. So who better to explain how to win the online war than multiplayer producer Aleksander Grondal. (Battlefield 4, PS4)

Really looking forward to getting a go of this on my PS4.

Me too.But why Dice don't show any gameplay on next gen consoles.I've seen some in youtube but the quality is terrible.

I agree why is there very few videos on bf4 for ps4? Also where are the call of duty ps4 version videos? Someone needs to find out.

I play BF4 on Ultra on PC with 60 fps and I wouldn't describe the PS4's footage as terrible.. it was an off screen video of a game in an early beta stage.. and it still looked great.. I'd say somewhere between medium and high settings on PC.. I'll take that in a second on console.

Touchpad ftw.
Gamesgbkiller  +   658d ago
Can't wait to try 64 players and 60 FPS.

That's going to be epic.

I am doing it, I'm breaking down and getting it on ps3, and the 10$ upgrade to Ps4.

Nice to see devs using the touchpad. Edit: if they actually implement it. Nice idea.

The problem with touchpad grenades is you must remove your thumb from the RS button meaning you temporarily lose the ability to aim (not good if the target is moving). I think selecting inventory is the best thing for it on an FPS
DigitalRaptor  +   658d ago
I completely see your point there. However, isn't that what happens when you use a grenade? It's a sidearm that requires you to temporarily dispose of your primary weapon.

No, he means that aiming the throw will be difficult because you will not be able to control the tregectory.

I think mapping knife to the touch pad would be better personally :/
EastBayPunk  +   658d ago
I don't think they've implemented the touchscreen as a way to flick grenades.. it seemed like he threw it out there as an idea.

touchpad should be used for switching weapons
DigitalRaptor  +   658d ago
Devs already trying nice things with the touchpad. A little experimentation didn't hurt anybody, and it look like Steambox controller will be attempting a few things of its own with the touch interface.

why the hell is DICE always the one asked about "SHOOTER FATIGUE" and not that garbage franchise that spits out a game YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR???? that's what people are getting "fatigued" from...

"flicking" to throw a grenade... No, just no.
joeymp  +   658d ago
please DICE do not use it to do this. How about clicking the touchpad to bring up the scoreboard. Or how about mapping Commo Rose to the touchpad
