There has been a lot of talk about Star Wars: Battlefront, especially about graphics and about the direction DICE has chosen for the game, and Producer Jesper Nielsen had more information to give about that on Reddit.
Good interview. I like his honesty. Sorry, hateboys, you'll just have to wait till it's ready.
Haha, it's not exactly an interview, but yeah, Nielsen is often bluntly honest on reddit and neogaf, and I like that. It probably comes from the fact that he used to be a game journo before. He wrote for Gamereactor if I'm not mistaken.
So are you saying that game journos are honest people? You're kidding right?
No. I'm saying that a lot of people that work in the game industry coming from the press tend to be less filtered than the usual producer that was PR-trained from the ground up.
I'm sure it will look ok. But like all other games it will be the worst looking one.
Did you run that analysis by Neil deGrasse Tyson before you commented? Lol..
It's funny that people think this isn't going to look absolutely amazing. a) It's the first time Frostbite 3 has been used without being tied to last gen. b) The game has way less destruction than Battlefield games. c) Dice is not Ubisoft.
"Gameplay will come in due time" = E3.
good news for xbox one owners, im tired of you guys getting the short end of the stick all of the time from us ps4 users.
Explain to me why wouldn't it be if it looks good on the ps4 it should look good on the X1 just might look sharper on the ps4 that's all
Don't get your hopes up the gap will continue to grow. You can't help a weaker GPU. It will go beyond just a sharper image I guarantee it. Just enjoy the X1 for its exclusive's give up on parity.
You must have the X1 confused with the Xbox 360
That's funny. It dosent matter which one I talk about they both have weaker GPU's than the PS4. Facts sometimes hurt.
wtf are you talking about? it hasnt grown at all, its shrunk.. and 360 had the stronger gpu if im not mistaken..
They'll be 2 extra blades of grass... wow that gap! ;)
it is rumored that sony is offering help to dice to make it the best experience on ps4
Just asking but does Dice really need any help from anybody heard they have some of the best graphics designers in the business
where did you here this rumor?
Brotard, His inner fanboy demon said it to him in his sleep. LOL
Regardless of what people might say on the internet I for one am amped for this game. I'm glad it's not like Battlefield or Battlefront 2. Honestly, from the trailer I expect it to be more of a hybrid between the two. The people that didn't think DICE would reiterate and change things about a game that released over a decade ago were kidding themselves. Some things that made sense ten years ago just wouldn't fit in the multiplayer space anymore. The only thing I find ridiculous is charging ten more dollars for two cosmetic items that they call a "deluxe edition". Give me a collectors edition with an AT-AT STATUE then maybe I'll bump my preorder up from the standard edition.
I'm still on the fence about this game.BF2 Was the only game I have ever put over 2000+ hours in cuz of its MP.I'm just gonna wait till I see everything before I start cursing at EA.
footage looked insane. Wonder if it will be 1080p on both. Day one for my PS4 - hope they make a custom console.
If history is any indication 900p on ps4, 720p on Xbox one...book mark this comment so I can say "told u so" lol...this is frostbite we are talking about and this time it's not cross-gen so the game will be even more demanding.
i expect 1080 on ps4 and 900p on xb1 thsi time round just because they are gonna be the weaker of the releases and there is no last gen.
Might not be 1080p on either. They seemed to focus on lighting, textures and frame rate, which them already claimed will be 60fps. But they also modified the engine, so who knows. Just have to wait until more info is uncovered. This game though is the best lit game I have seen so far, if they can deliver what was shown in the trailer.
I only have xbox one for now but I must say if this game is 720p like BF4 and BFH it will force me to buy a ps4 due to DICE not optimizing their engine. I think it's safe to say PS4 should do 1080p and X1 900p which is fine for me
As long as it plays well... I couldn't care less if it pulls a BF4 and it launches at 720p... This game will be my go to shooter this year if it works well and plays well :)
This is one I'll be playing on PC. I'm sure the GFX on my Xone will be fantastic, but you need a mouse and keyboard for online MP IMO.
I am the opposite i am getting this for x box 1 and witcher 3 for PC I'm hoping with Windows 10 and dx12 though EA (Dice) will give me two copies if i buy 1 copy for x box 1 (Pc version free by the x box 1 app?) Microsoft have given them the tools to do it now and have crossplay as well!
Take the time to make it support DX12 and it could POTENTIALLY look better on X1...esp for a game like this if they use DX12 to help with multiple light sources. Imagine lightsabers, blasters, explosions, shields and all that stuff going on under the canopy of the Endor forest.
seems like SWBF would be a highly intense lighting source game , it will be interesting to see if whatever parts of dx12 dice uses has any effect on the visuals .
Wow that's great for Sony. Im sure they're very proud.
Will try it early on EA access,oh the luxury of xbox one :D
so much damage control from dice
of course it will look the same as ps4, the only difference that might happen is they will have possibly a lower resolution
