Digital Foundry: We grabbed some footage at EA's Star Wars Battlefront review event at the tail end of last week. This is it. PlayStation 4 final code. The game ran well in its beta phase - and this evidence seems to suggest it's now even smoother.
The people over at DICE are wizards. Battlefront's superb visuals alongside its flawless frame-rate is a remarkable feat in the industry.
people can hate on the content all they want but there is no doubting that what DICE have done visually and performance wise is nothing short of incredible.
I agree. It's a technical marvel.
I remember the scepticism at reveal. Good to see that they nailed this at least.
Bland open maps with little to no buildings minimal destruction and 40 player count just to start. Yes it runs great but the game is also a shadow of a map like shanghi in bf4 with the amount of stuff on the map and the chaos.
This is Battlefront, not Battlefield. You might be only person that actually wanted a Battlefield game with a Star Wars skin over it.
In my opinion, DICE is one of the best devs around, period and the Frostbite Engine, the best engine period! I've thought this ever since Battlefield. This game has some of the best graphics out there in my opinion.
very smooth, good job
So they shrunk the maps size from BF and lowered it to 20v20 with less vehicles etc, and the FPS increased? WHO-DA-THUNK-IT! They're not wizards, they freed up power by lowering what was on screen compared to the BF games. Wake up. This is no different to lowering detail and resolution to get a better FPS.
How would you have improved performance on consoles without removing any of that which does not affect the game in any way BTW this isn't battlefield, its battlefront. Please elaborate
Just compare with other recent games then, if you find one worthy... at least Battlefront map sizes 20v20 with vehicles running 900p @60 on PS4 and 720p @60 on XBox One materials and lighting that looks real Wake up!
def one of the prettiest games ever.
Good news for PS4 owners.
Good news for XBO owners too. The framerate is looking just as solid on this analysis video: http://www.gamersyde.com/hq... As far as engines are concerned, the Frostbite engine is the most mature across the widest array of platforms.
Very good performance on fps!
Lots of talk about the viauals, and yes they look fantastic, but lets not forget about the excellent sound design, something that very few devs make the extra effort for, but DICE is certainly one of them.
Dice was given access to StarWars assets so its no brainer that the sound would replicate the movies. I heard that in PS Blog.
Looks like it has pretty good performance on the PS4. It also looks great as well.
My favorite frosbite engine. Battlefront will be the game i play for a very long time just like bf4.
Nary a frame drop! This is incredible! And to me the best looking multiplatform game on any platform!
Why are people suddenly hating on Star Wars Battlefront...? It's got more content than Titanfall ever had, a rock solid 60fps, and it's not 720p! ...well, at least PS4 Gamer's are happy ;o)
