DICE: Bad Company 2 'reaching' Uncharted 2's graphics

Upcoming FPS Battlefield Bad Company 2 is "reaching" the graphical quality set by last year's stunning PS3-exclusive Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but it will not surpass it, developer DICE had admitted.

Speaking to, producer Gordon Van Dyke said no game can claim to better the graphics seen in Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2. (Battlefield: Bad Company 2, PC, PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Xbox 360)

That's not what I saw in the beta. Disregard Bad Company 2's quality, it is plagued on consoles by a bunch of aliasing that seriously drops down our appreciation of graphics. So unless they fix that until the release of the game or they are talking about the PC version in extremely high settings, I don't see how the game can be a graphical reference.
Pennywise  +   2226d ago
Completely agree. I did not enjoy the beta at all.

I know betas are not 100% on par with final release, but I have no clue how they think they will match UC2 on a multiplatform title. I hope they prove me wrong... but here is to wishful thinking!

The graphics are good but not Uncharted 2 worthy although they add in destruction so thats a plus
Mo0eY  +   2226d ago
I totally loved the beta, but I agree. The anti-aliasing does not help this game. When you can see blocky shadows, you might as well not even mention Uncharted 2 and BFBC2 in the same sentence.

Now, is it better than MW2? Totally.
Hellsvacancy  +   2226d ago
I loved the beta (played it daily) but thats 1 BOLD statement, BC2 will look good (better then MW2 anyway) but not that damn good

Graphics in multiplayer are almost always downsampled(as can be seen in Uncharted 2 as well). I think they are talking about the single player campaign.

Killzone 2 looks just as amazing online as it does in the single player.
DelbertGrady  +   2226d ago
Haven't had the chance to play it online but if that's the case then Killzone 2 is an exception.

Games like COD MW2, Uncharted 2, Gears 2, and a ton of other titles have downsampled graphics in the multiplayer modes.

Consoles yes but PC no - Crysis still reigns supreme
The Maxx  +   2226d ago
Agreed. However KZ2 has limited weapons, not nearly as much destructable environments and no vehicles. KZ2 wasn't really pushing the hardware other to have to make large scale calculations.

There is by far more things happening on screen with Battlefield Badcompany 2 for the hardware to calculate thus having the devs to downscale the AA and graphics. Especially in multiplayer. This also applies to Uncharted 2. With less going on, more resources can go towards graphics.

The beta was awsome but the graphics are nowhere near Uncharted 2. There was a lot of model switching to lower poly models which was far too obvious.

It makes sense for the game to use lower poly models for people who are far away but shouldn't really happen when you're viewing the guy who killed you.

edit: The PC version will obviously be better graphically so it could be that which they're talking about and we should probably wait for the final product first.

You dont know sh*t. KZ2 is heads and shoulders above BC2.

Read this, than you understand. Also KZ3 has 32 players online with no graphical and peformace restrictions.

The Maxx  +   2226d ago
Not sure what you're point is? We were talking about the graphics compared to BF and games like UC2 and KZ2 and WHY BF will not meet that of KZ2 or UC2.

Your comments are way off topic making you look like you don't know what you are talking about.

Also why are you talking about KZ3 in a discussion about what KZ2 offers?

You have been reported as Off topic.

For that comment i'm not buying this game no more. What a delusional statment to make? The game doesn't even look as good as MW2. So first you gotta beat MW2, then killzone 2, and then Uncharted 2.
Rainstorm81  +   2226d ago
BF:BC2 beta's graphics isnt on par with U2:AT (beta) so i doubt that the final product will reach U2's final product. The MP is a loss for BF at this point.

Far too much detail. (the character's mouth move when you talk through your mic for christ's sake)

But thats U2's advantage its a smaller MP game.
reneki  +   2226d ago
true that the beta graphics weren't that great, but when playing a game like this, i don't care how it looks so much as how it plays, and it plays well.
The Maxx  +   2226d ago
You're not going to buy the game becuase of their comment? because they are "reaching" to have the same graphics as UC2? They are not saying they have reached it or surpassed it. I think EVERY dev is trying to "reach" the graphic's of UC2.

I guess this means your game playing days are over...

I find it hard to believe that BFBC2 will look as good as Uncharted 2, HOWEVER all of you bi4ching about what the guy said - it's all of YOU who don't know what you're talking about, not him. None of you saw the game in it's current or final state, you've only seen the BETA version which was released 2 months ago, which was almost 5 months before the final release date. A BETA which aim was to test the multiplayer gameplay, not show you the graphics... Plus it was just a simple map, full of sand and some buildings, nothing to show off. You haven't seen anything else. Who knows, he might be right, let's just hope so.

Again, I don't think that it will turn out to be true, but please, don't compare a BETA to a final product.

And thats not anything special. lol. I expect PC games to be visually superior to anything on consoles....thats why i think a game should be fun, first and foremost.
Being Pretty doesnt mean its worth playing.

But if they are talking about the console versions, hopefully they can back up their claims.
Maddens Raiders  +   2226d ago
at the people downplaying the greatness of this game and the -----> beta visuals. This game already looked good in the beta and with a March release date there is no telling how good the final gfx will be. PS3 is the lead platform on this thing so I know the visuals on IT are going to be proper -- if they mean UC2 gfx on the PC, then more power to PC owners, but that still makes me anxious for my PS3 copy.

It actually sounds like some people are mad that it (((((could))))) achieve these visuals lol, what do you guys want them to say -- we have regressed? Hell, the gfx I see in Army of 2 40th Day don't look that bad AT ALL (and I'm not even in to the series), and doesn't EA publish (have their expertise behind) this game as well? Anyway, I hope it does look that good and I think people are still underestimating the console that can do everything. I don't know how it will look on other consoles but I do know that the PS3 is the lead.

I also think that some of you guys are taking this a bit too far, thinking that DICE is saying F Naughty Gods we're going to be better in a FPS -- and that's not what they're saying at all:

From the article:
But Van Dyke reckons Bad Company 2, which is our 37th most anticipated game of 2010, will surpass Uncharted 2 in one key area: vistas.

"The thing is though, we have much bigger environments. To even be close, to me is quite an honour as a developer. The one thing I did was, when I looked at their game I was like, damn them! What have they done to the rest of us? I was looking for something where I could say, okay, that we're doing better. I looked at their vistas, and I think that our vistas, because it's in game, this is actual in-game terrain you could theoretically take your soldier and walk up to, our vistas are better. Naughty Dog, if you hear this, I challenge you versus our vistas!"
He's talking about the vistas and giving mad props to Naughty Gods for turning the industry upside down with their jaw dropping visual effects.

I know I may get some disagrees for this, but I'm going to say that KILLZONE 3 are the visuals they should be looking to exceed, because to me that game has the most impressive graphics of any console based fps TO DATE.

How about actually reading the article children?

Here, I'll even post the important quotes so you don't have to strain your fingers by clicking the link. And to those comparing the beta (an admitted old build) to UC2 or even UC2's Beta, you're morons, basically. Wait for the final product, which is of what he's talking about.

Taken from article:

Speaking to, producer Gordon Van Dyke said no game can claim to better the graphics seen in Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2.

"I wouldn't make that kind of claim," he said. "Uncharted 2 is an amazing-looking game. But we're reaching that level of quality. It's going to be hard for any game to be able to make a claim that they look better. But we are getting to, I feel, that level, where it's looking very impressive. When you see it - and I've heard other people say it as well, so it's not just me - other people are saying it's getting there."

"The thing is though, we have much bigger environments. To even be close, to me is quite an honour as a developer. The one thing I did was, when I looked at their game I was like, damn them! What have they done to the rest of us? I was looking for something where I could say, okay, that we're doing better. I looked at their vistas, and I think that our vistas, BECAUSE IT'S IN-GAME, THIS IS ACTUAL IN-GAME TERRAIN YOU COULD THEORETICALLY TAKE YOUR SOLDIER AND WALK UP TO, our vistas are better. Naughty Dog, if you hear this, I challenge you versus our vistas!"

----------------------------- ------------------------------

Wow, what a jerk right, he's saying that he's proud to even be close to UC2, jerk. OH, and, apparently, the vistas are better, because you can actually go there, fücking jerk!!!

/end sarcasm

zeeshan  +   2226d ago
It's a multiplatform game which means it will also be on Xbox360. Uncharted 2's graphics are only possible because of the computing power combined with huge disk space available thanks to BD technology. However, it is great to see other developers showing respect. Naughty Dogs have really outdone everybody in almost every department.

Come on Dice, show how it's done to IW!
MNicholas  +   2226d ago
When they match Uncharted 1
any talk of coming remotely close to Uncharted 2's visuals can be considered plausible. Based on available videos they're not even close.

Perhaps his real goal was to avoid comparison with another shooter ... Killzone 2. That game is so advanced that it even applies lighting nd physics calculations to something as seemingly trivial as the little burning spark-like embers from an explosion. Dust clouds are affected by dynamic events in real time. Killzone 2 has set the technology standard higher than anyone could have predicted.

Here's a video showing just a few of Killzone 2's advances:
Maddens Raiders  +   2226d ago
However a bitt too extreme -
Milo Garrett ^^^, that's what I'm trying to say. I think people just saw the title and said to themselves, "oh hell no, no they didn't!" That's not what occurred at all -- these guys give props to ND over and over as they should; their just trying to match ND in certain -----> ((aspects)) of UC2 -- not topple UC2. 0_o

edit 1: MNicholas - I disagreed with you because they are not trying to be better than the entirety of UC1 & UC2. Did you guys read the article & what Van Dyke actually said and are you all aware that it's (BFBC2) not out for 3 months yet?

I do agree with you MNicholas about your comments regarding KILLZONE 2 though. That is spot on imo. KILLZONE 2 has set the physics and lighting bar to a level that still has not come close -- to being surpassed.

I wish I could give you an agree as well. :(

while the graphics may look good compared to a 3rd person shooter, it wont be graphically better then UC2.

while i dont like uncharted 1 or 2, i will admit the games do have the best back-drops in the console gaming world, atleast that ive seen so far.

The most impressive thing about BFBC2 is the sheer size of each map and the ammount of graphical i guess you could say polishing, they have managed to apply is pretty f***en fantastic.

Im trading MW2 in for BFBC2, since the game will supply a working and enjoyable multiplayer experience. Perks are just SO F***EN ANNOYING!

You guys need to read the article. The guy said it was "getting there", meaning he admits BF:BC2 doesn't look as good as Uncharted 2. Also, he mentions why BF would never look as good as Uncharted, the maps are WAY bigger. Also, full destructibility also hinders that possibility. Oh and remember, BF is a multi plat game so its not gonna have the same amount of polish that an exclusive would have. At least DICE is trying to push themselves and produce a better looking game, unlike others like MW2.

There's 80 to 90 percent of new releases that beat UC2 again as well, I mean Mass Effect 2, as well as ME1, Splinter Cell Conv., Alan Wake, get the picture.

Dude I have maxed out crysis on ultra high everything and kept a 50 fps framerate (if that tells you anything), and UC2 beats crysis. I can tell you for certain that the textures in UC2 look better at 720p than what crysis was even on the highest resolution, because resolution means squat, it is highly overated.

Yes the multiplats are better on the PC than the PS3 and 360 (not by much either), but to be bvtt hvrt because UC2 breaks you're mold of beating out almost every PC game? Cmon, stop hiding behind your powerfull PC and except the fact that UC2 is what every developer strives to beat. Too bad the developers have figured this and you haven't. Youd didn't hear Dice say we are trying to up our graphics to match crysis,shadow horizon or etc. They specifically said UC2 for a reason. I wonder what that reason could be?
Udidntlistenpunk  +   2225d ago
Uncharted 2 set the bar real high. And set new standard and universal praise.
Now everyone wants to break Uncharteds bar.

But in all actuallity, Killzone 2 deserves as much praise as Uncharted 2s technical prowess.

Killzone 2 did came out earlier. And despite the hate for the PS3 in 2006-2008 and the hate KZ2 received from thousands of these socalled "journalists" whom all said it was IMPOSSIBLE, KZ2 destroyed them.

And where are these phony journalists now? Fking asshats that they are.

Are you kidding me? Did you read the article? DICE was so light-hearted about it. All they could say that could possibly be better than UC2 in terms of graphics is the vistas, and that's because of the inherent difference in the type of game they're going for.

Don't embarrass a good dev like DICE by comparing them to the trash talking Turn 10.

Will have to wait and see on this one.
Uncharted had a colorful, comic-bookish look to it, but it was expertly done. The styles of these games would seem to be different, as I would assume BC would be going for more of a realistic approach?

Either way, I guess we'll have to wait and see what the single player will look like in order to see how accurate this claim will be.

after having played the beta on the PS3...i don't think they can make that statement....then again it was just a beta, so graphics might improve. Although, I kinda like a lot the sound effects in the game.

Did ^ fanboys
read the article?

"The one thing I did was, when I looked at their game I was like, damn them! What have they done to the rest of us? I was looking for something where I could say, okay, that we're doing better."

That's a pretty big compliment that you rarely hear publicly from one dev to another.

This only shows that MS doesn't have the first party support which Sony has!

But we clearly see, that the xbox360 is a Power Horse!

Crysis 2 running better on the PS3...

Crytek already said that PC and PS3 are the better platforms for Crysis 2, so I really don't understand why you are here posting messages.

It is better for yourself and the pride of your family if you just went missing for a few decades.

tsk tsk tsk
Where-in lies the proof Rocco? Show me a game which is not multiplat which supports this theory because anything I have seen on the 360 has been done better on the PS3 by a huge margin.
champ21  +   2226d ago
lol any multiplat on the pc will beat uncharted 2, no contest.
RedDragan  +   2226d ago
Well my new PC which is twice the price of a PS3 doesn't play multiplatform games as well as the PS3....

Sure, if you take out a loan it will be better but I don't want a loan.

I suppose I could spend even more again to upgrade my PC but then if we are talking about spending more on the same system then I might as well talk Xbox.

Come to think of it, I doubt I have any friends who's PC can match the PS3.

I have NOT seen it in the BETA..
Show me or it is NOT true.

btw...BC2 is not that good anyway...Mag is just slightly less meh than BC2..both are letdowns to me

I'm looking forward to the second game. I loved the beta, and the game does have pretty great visuals. Not Uncharted great but still great.
bnaked  +   2226d ago
dreamers ^^. But the beta has shown the best multiplayer i've ever played. The atmosphere is great.

BAHAHA...literally if u want to compare beta's mag has better graphics
more colors, more vibrant, better animation, alot of the ground textures destroy BC2 which were mostly flat mapping...more complex geometry...seriously whoever said this is smoking something STRONG

I wouldn't say better graphics, since it was only 1 map that was shown(Africa). We still have to see the other maps in BFBC2, especially the jungle one.
cwir  +   2226d ago
Actually it was in South America (Chile). It's Arica Harbour, not Africa :)
Citroen  +   2226d ago
it will on the PC, that's for sure. especially with DX11 tessellation, running at a higher resolution than U2 can, Uncharted 2 is only 720p max(1280x720), BFBC2 on the PC can be played at up to but not limited to 2500x1600, that's 4x more pixels on screen at any given moment. better texture quality, more with most PC games, it will have better graphics than Uncharted 2. Anyone who disagrees doesn't know what graphics means, and doesn't know how games are made either.

Having said that, Uncharted 2 reigns supreme on consoles.
bumnut  +   2226d ago
Of course it will be better on pc! but i would need to remortgage my house to max it at 2560x1600!
Citroen  +   2226d ago
You actually wouldn't..
It doesn't cost that much to get a Radeon 4870 or 4890 and that should do the trick. As long as you're not planning on using AA.

Also who plays at that res anyway, you'll easily do 1920x1080(1080p) on a 4870, with everything on except AA and get good fps.

And it'll still have better graphics than Uncharted 2.

Only a noob thinks that buying a better graphics card magically makes games prettier.

You gotta have all the good supporting hardware to go with and support your graphics card.
hoops  +   2226d ago
A midrange GPU costing $120-$150 will run quite a few games at 2560x1600 minus the AA on.

The DICE comment is NOT TRUE
I played the beta and the graphics are NOWHERE NEAR the quality of Uncharted 2.......NOT EVEN CLOSE....nice try DICE but what a load of crap that comment is.
bjornbear  +   2226d ago
dude...use your brain.
1st: ITS A BETA - not representative of the final product.


3rd: they say "reaching" as in CLOSE, and if you consider destructable enviroments, its probably not impossible - how do you know ND haven't helped them dev. for PS3? or something of that sort.

don't be so ignorant, read the article and use your head =/

He was being sincere...
He said on the BF forums:

"My interview with them was cherry picked with comments that made to make for an exciting article for their website. When being quoted without hearing everything that was said on the tone in which it was said can come off many different ways, but at least Naughty Dog knew what I was saying. :-)

I just say what's on my mind. I have complimented them before and would do it again!"

Gordon is the coolest dev I know, trust me, he was being sincere.

Bad Company 2 'reaching' Uncharted 2's graphics

RBdrift  +   2226d ago
Anyways does anyone know whats the lead development platform being used for Bad Company 2?
bjornbear  +   2226d ago
considering PS3 got the BETA
I think they are doing it on both plats. seperately, which is the best. =)

+ no one's going to get anything matching U2 on 360, so they MUST be using PS3 to achieve anything comparable =)
Eternally33  +   2226d ago
Smoking crack
Christ this this funny Bad Company 2 surpassing Uncharted 2 quality, there not even surpassing Uncharted 1 and how the hell can they surpass Uncharted 2 then. Try surpassing Uncharted 1 first, then we can maybe start talking about how close bad company 2 is to Uncharted 2. Not even Crysis surpasses Uncharted 2. Blueray wasn't made to let games surpass it, it was made to beat all. Not even Cryengine 3 touches the quality of Uncharted 2.
