The trailer for DICE's Star Wars: Battlefront finally premièred, both for Star Wars Celebration attendees and internet viewers.
Depends on the gameplay graphics.
It's Star Wars day on May the 4th, so maybe Dice or EA will have an event to show off some actual gameplay for the game. Failing that I guess this would be EA's big title to focus on at E3 this year. I can believe that what we saw was an in-engine, real time render from a decent rig PC, but consoles should be able to get pretty close to that if DICE optimizes the game enough. Building this game with only current gen consoles and PC in mind will help. When you bare in mind that BF4 was a cross gen release that had to have many negative effects on development up to current gen, Battlefront doesn't seem to have that problem.
the footage is from in game real time ps4 gameplay
it will be on demo at e3 and we will see how good it actually looks with the hud and someone holding s controller actually playing it. then we will hear the cries of how it got downgraded because the early footage was being run on a high end computer.
Yes, it's pretty obvious many WILL be disappointed once actual gameplay is shown near release.
Leave it to Gamingbolt to confuse "Game Engine Footage" with actual gameplay graphics in 2015.
The gameplay graphics will be similar, only less cinematic and less refined. All the major techniques in use in the trailer will be present in the gameplay as well. This is the next evolution of the Frostbite engine with the shackles of last gen taken off. They're now using physically based rendering and photogrametry. I have no doubt that the final results will be stunning.
Generally for cut-scene type footage in engine better textures and lighting effects are used. More often than not, environmental and character models are upgraded a bit depending on what the engine is capable of. They can do this due to the fact that these scenes have no additional game processing happen, so the only thing happening is the animations being processed and the GPU doing the rendering. Game play won't be quite as good, but it's not so significant that people should worry. Looking at TLOU, UC, GeOW, or other high profile games that did this the difference is noticeable, but not significant enough to make it terrible.
@aceitman: No it is not. At the end of the trailer it even says: not actual gameplay.
People are just trying to feed the hype train, I will hold any judgement until actual gameplay is shown let alone actually get hyped over it. The press is just about as full of crap as developers overselling their work
It feels like the N4G comments section for a few articles have been overrun with EA shills. It's also bizarre seeing so many "articles" from gaming sites that read like PR blurbs and advertisements, all telling us how amazing this game looks while we all wonder when we'll actually see this mythical gameplay footage for ourselves. Of course, preorders have gone live... How convenient.
Yeah it looks amazing but no part of recent history suggests that the footage will be indicative of the final product in any way. DICE does have a penchant for delivering some amazing graphics so I guess it'll be a looker but I somehow doubt that this won't be downgraded. Honestly more than anything its a no go for me because of the lack of a single player component. I'd love to play the game & expansion of lore, but I don't do online mp so what was once highly anticipated has now completely dropped off of my radar. I'm beginning to wonder if there will be any worthwhile SP experiences out in time for the holidays or if I'll just have to replay Arkham Knight about a thousand times…I may be good with that though.
Or their just excited for the game. I know, crazy idea
Same thing with Mass Effect and Dragon Age. I swear these folks get a nice fat goodie basket for praising EA.
I'm sceptical about that.
Maybe not the big leap in graphics but there really shouldn't be any doubt that the actually game won't look good.
Am not getting my hopes up on this game just yet its ea at the end of the day.
With all the awful multiplayer experiences that plague modern games, I'll settle for "see enemy, fire laser, enemy down". If that works, we have a winner.
Yeah, it's published by EA. And? That didn't stop games like Dead Space 3 or Battlefield 4 from looking amazing.
They are more to games than visuals or u one of those who just want a crap game and Good graphics
It's also a rushed product. When this game releases, it will have a production time of less than 2 years, which is highly uncommon for a AAA game nowadays....and by highly uncommon I mean not enough time to make a AAA game. I was interested in the game until hearing it had no SP campaign(don't care for MP), and I can certainly understand why people are excited, but can't for the life of me figure out why people think this is going to be the most amazing game ever....it is EA after all.
So, you're both a fortune teller and a developer?
Nope. Just a realist. I want the game to be good. I enjoyed the first one, but never got around to the 2nd. I know what EA is like through a mountain of evidence, and I know that when a AAA game is under a tight deadline, no matter the developer, things don't always work properly. I also know that you can make anything look good in a trailer, in-engine or not. People are understandably excited for this game. Given the game itself, and DICE developing it, it has all the makings of being awesome. But with a development cycle of less than 2 years, it makes me wonder why people ignore history of EA and current development in general and get their hopes up to the point where it is highly unlikely they'll be satisfied. One doesn't need to be a developer to recognize that.
Well, as someone above said, and is quite obvious....... When we see the actual game, we can discuss then what kind of graphical what-have-u it is.
The tech they use for photogrammetry might become more common in the videogame industry.
well its just all those camera angles and captured animations..,but its not about the graphics it how the game actualy feels,you can make raytraced graphics and if the game is shit its shit..i want starwars with great story great singleplayer,and dice is not realy good at that ..on mp side they are realy good
its going to be interesting to hear about the tech used for pc and xb1 , all the lasers being individual lighting sources it seems like this is something dx12 will really help with .
Battlefront will not be a true dx12 game just support with the api changes. EA and Dice they are thinking holidays 2016 if Windows 10 is widely adopted. Bleed@ Yes the top guy who helped build the Frostbite engine said late 2016 They have to be sure gaming folk will change OS before they can slap a minimum spec down for their engine. Worst case scenario too many gamer's stayed with Windows 7 and 8 and that means they can't use dx12 because its a Window 10 exclusive. They want as many gamer's as possible using Windows 10 and dx12 by end of 2016. If you are gamer be crazy not to realistically.
have they said that ? this games seems like it could be the poster child to move people to win 10
After of watch dogs,unity and battlefield hardline you need to go back of living under a rock to believe what the game gonna look like the trailer.
AC Unity wasn't downgraded. The final game on my PC looks just as good as, or better than, any of the trailers for the game. Yeah, yeah, yeah Watch Dogs was downgraded, but it still looked quite good. Are some of you going to harp on about that game for forever? That Watch Dogs demo was shown off before the new consoles were even announced, and long before the game came out. Star Wars Battlefront, on the other hand, comes out in about 7 months. If you think the basic structure of the game's graphical design hasn't been locked down by this point it's only because you don't know how game development works. The reality is, only a small minority of games have been downgraded, but some of you want to act like nearly every game is downgraded and we should be negative and cynical about everything.
I am speaking about consoles,they tell what the trailer was how ps4 can look like,in a 3000k pc you for sure can move this game maybe not at 60fps locked.
Dx12 baby! That is why I have a PC rig for situation like this. Dx12 is the future. Will be interesting to see how this game turns out on XB1 though as I think it will be one of the first third party games to support DX12 on the console.
This isn't a DX12 game. Windows 10 doesn't release until near the end of the year, and there is no way EA would support Win10 only so soon after release. There is also nothing yet to say that DX12 will be finalized come Win10's release, or even soon after. Even if Win10 is a free upgrade, there are still going to be a lot of people that wait it out. On the plus side for the X1 though, DX11.2 for the Xbox actually does have some DX12 features built into it to take advantage of the hardware.
