E4G: It is a good day for the PC owners.
It damn well better.
I should have known that this would be good news for you :P, always a PC gamer.
"Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PC Beta Info Will Come Soon" So why is this news, wait for the news to come then make an article. Everyday n4g sinks deeper and deeper no longer becoming relevant.
is teh shyt. believe the hype.
After PS3 beta cant wait to try out the PC version, can only be better
Ya dark murder would be nice if it started today. Yo know once you start playing the pc version it will be hard on eyes on the consoles. But i will get a console version and maybe a pc version depending on my mood of game playing.
This isn't really news, we already sorta knew that the PC beta was coming early 2010. On the bright side it's good knowing that it hasn't been delayed, I can't wait to get my freaking hands on it. The PS3 beta was an option, but the PC version is how it's meant to be played :) And the only time for me when N4G is irrelevant is when HHG or Michael Pachter are featured on here lol.
Who cares if it's news or not, by your standards? It's one link out of pages of links, and you aren't forced to click it and read the article. You can just see this, then keep your eyes peeled for "Bad Company 2 PC Beta Sign Ups Today" in the near future. No need to thank me for my wisdom here, pals.
in later news, a breaking discovery reveals socomnick's origin to his profile pic. http://i88.photobucket.com/... didn't know you liked guidos ;)
Can't wait :D
Oooo can't wait! should keep me at bay till the game comes out.
Yep, along with everyone else :D
All I need to see is a PC screenshot on max settings and a gameplay video to keep me from going nuts :(
You PC gamers fantasize too much :P
Most of the screenshots they've released are basically PC screenshots.
The HD(pc) version will be great cant wait.
#1 it's always a good day for PC owners. #2 As much as EA sucks as of late, they have DICE working on this project and Dice understands PC gamers and they will release a superior product. #3 All those millions of PC gamers who didn't buy that crap Modern Warfare 2 will buy Battlefield Bad Company 2. #4 DEDICATED PC SERVERS and SERVER ADMINISTRATORS also the ability to lean #5 I Can't wait
All of the official screenshots on the Battlefield website are renders of the 360 version. I asked Repi (one of the rendering architects at DICE) about which version of the game the screenshot were taken from and he told me that they were taken from the 360 build (rendered at an extremely high resolution, and high quality anti-aliasing), but it's actual game graphics, just not running in real time. He also said the PC version would support higher resolution textures, better shadows, actual in-game anti-aliasing (console versions don't use it) and tessalation with DX11 - meaning the PC version, in reality, will look better than these glorious screenshots. http://www.battlefieldbadco... http://www.battlefieldbadco... And that's pretty incredible. @Below The Frostbite was designed for PC as well as the consoles and the PC version was built from the ground up as a PC version. Battlefield has a huge history on PC and DICE knows that they would severely damage their reputation as a top PC game producer by throwing together a shoddy 360 to PC port.
Good info Console = Directx 9 PC = Directx 11 I feel Dice made a 360 version then ported it over to PC then added in the PC features instead of building a PC game from ground up then porting over to console. But Dice and the Battlefield series are top notch so I expect good things from them unlike that Infinity Ward crap.
noooo Panda the console gamers....they won't be able to handle the truth.
but but.. the ps3 and the 360 are so powerful, how could they not out do the pc?
Hey good info im glad the pc is getting graphics it deserves. We need the pc to push forward.
actually Divx9 would be related to the 360 since the ps3 uses openGL. also bone thugs for life
i thought it the beta was exclusive to ps3...does that mean 360 may get one, cause i really want to play it. havent really been much of a pc fps gamer, but i guess if im really desperate, i could try to get in on that march cant come soon enough :( and reach beta should be coming out around that time too
There's no 360 beta.
ps3 got the beta, but PC and 360 will get a demo soon. Idk if it'll include the same things as the ps3 beta or if will be a new map, mode, etc... Anyone know?
COME ONNNNNNNNNNNNNNN (fry) !! can't wait
looking frwd to trying this out (especially after upgrading my pc at xmas). I enjoyed the ps3 beta but i haven't played a pc bf since bf2 (didn't play 2142 and discounting heroes cus it's crap lol) also i really hope they make it a conquest beta for the pc, sick of this 'rush' gamemode tbh
Did they put the ability to go prone back in the PC version, or is it only crouch like consoles? I know i read something about it months ago, but I don't remember.
I heard prone in pc version (I don't have a link) and other additions the consoles wont have.
There's no prone in any of the versions of the game (which saddens me). But DICE claims they're making the PC version more like the real Battlefield games, and less like the console Battlefield games.
I'm sure a couple of modders will be able to hack prone into the game. :)
I remember in a past issue of PC gamer they said the PC version would have prone. They said they didn't include it in the console version because the lack of AA allowed snipers to be almost invisible while prone. So, since the PC version will obviously have higher resolutions and AA, they were able to include it.
i think everyone should watch this new BFBC2 video. this new squad deathmatch mode looks intense! http://badcompany2.ea.com/#...
