CVG: DICE has warned its rivals in the military shooter space that it's "here to win" with Battlefield 3 - and accused some of its competitors of "treading water".
DICE is going to destroy CoD...
Going to destroy all Multiplayer shooters you mean
BC2 is the best online shooter I've ever played. Battlefield 3 will likely blow my mind. The only problem is that even a year after release, the majority of players I've gamed with are NOOBS at Bad Company 2's multiplayer. They STILL don't understand how to play as a team. EA needs to create some sort of tutorial for people who don't know how to play a SQUAD-BASED shooter properly. If so many players still can't handle the complexities of BC2(Battlefield lite)...I don't know how they will adapt to the gameplay of a full-fledged Battlefield game.
As good as this game looks I can understand some novice players sitting in a corner just staring at floor tiles for the first few weeks. haha
I hated squad mates who camp and snipe the entire game. It's impossible to find a BC2 game without these camping snipers on my squad. Nowadays its hard to even find a full game.
The only Battlefield game I ever played was 2142. I really dug that game. I played it all the time. These newer games almost require that you use a headset, and I hate talking into those things. But that's just me. I'm a quiet gamer.
Been playing battlefield since the start, 1942 all the way... cant wait for this iteration looks amazing! Hope i am amazed and jaw dropped as i was back when 1942 came out, it was a beast at the time, maybe not graphics but just shear size.
This is a good vid for the BC2 noobs.
@LOGICWINS Complexities? Since when was gaming complex? Its playing a game we're talking about. If you want complex, go write a game instead. BC2 is the best multiplayer game on consoles no doubt. It amazes me that more people didn't buy it. It sold well but that game deserved CoD numbers. Battlefield 3 is the multiplayer game to get this. CoD is going down town!
They already did with BF BC 2. Question is if the COD crowd will take note and dare to try something new, or just stick with re-buying a slightly more broken version of the same game from Activision. I'm thinking of rebuying BF BC 2 just to play the Vietnam pack. I've tried finding the same MP enjoyment in other FPS shooters this year but with zero luck.
Uncharted 3, Gears 3, Zelda, Mass 3, and ES:V Skyrim come out in November. All AAA material. Next COD comes out in Nov too. Which do you think will seell the most? Some sheep need redirecting.
@NukaCola Gears 3 is scheduled for September, Mass Effect 3 is in December (supposedly)
I wouldn't worry about the Vietnam pack. It's not as fun as it looks, regular battlefield play is a lot more fun.
Honestly though, I don't want the CoD crowd playing Battlefield 3. They don't know what they're doing.
Activision has just pissed their pants. BFBC2 was and still is the best online shooter. The DX11 PC version looks so better than COD not to mention that I prefer the BC2 game play versus that easy to use arcade COD style. Battlefield 3 and DICE are really pushing the tech and with a 30 second clip have just put the industry on notice....That The King is Back!!
Want now!!! Yeah I am a brat.
Destroy is an understatement.
let's see if they back it up! It's going to rock if they can.
It's hard to not beat an iterative update of a 4 year old game. Sales is a whole different story, but the quality in CoD has been surpassed by other shooters pretty well every year since CoD3.
They did that with 1942, and again with BF2. lol CoD was never better.
HOPE It sells more than COD!
10 sec footage set me on fire for the whole year. Just can't **** wait
BFBC2 had the best FPS MP last year (the worst SP though) and COD is getting really old fast. If anyone is primed to take the crown, it's Battlefield.
Personally, I'd like to see the new CoD be something different, but it is indeed getting old... I been thinking, Activision should release a CoD MP title solely just for that, instead of releasing a whole new game that has DLC content in its MP... That would be a better idea don't you think? EDIT: Then they're craves of charging us for online would be satisfied, but I think if it was like that then it'd be worth it because, that would include the costs of new maps and weapons they'd release from time to time and as long as the quality of the online play is as solid as an exclusive (meaning little to no lag, connection errors, servers etc.....)
I will laugh my ass off if Activision release Modern warfare 3 on the MW2 engine. It's going to look like a Gameboy game next to Battlefield 3. This game raises the bar for FPS. Killzone 3 is the last and best example of old school FPS.
Killzone 3 old school? Thanks for the laugh.
I'm pretty sure that there is no MW2 engine, every COD since COD4 has been on the same engine. I could be wrong.... highly unlikely though!
Ever since CoD2 http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... @ below: That was a funny read +bubbles
Really? Damn, I could have sworn that COD 4 was a totally new engine! So I was wrong... but in being wrong I was actually more right then I was then when I thought I was right..... lol
Killzone is very new school and the cover mechanic is the best I've seen in a FPS, they should all have it.
I agree with the first part of your comment but...Prrf...what...? Killzone is not "old school" by any means, it has sci-fi cinematic custom controls, like resistance, at least that's my opinion.
I actually enjoyed the SP of BFBC2. Mp was good, but needed larger maps. This game fits the bill.
I never even finished the SP campaign. The multiplayer maps were awesome, but we needed more of them.
I enjoyed the Mp tho it could be better but hell i don't play battlefield for the single player MP is really really fun with friends more so then cod. I agree larger maps and more players i would like to see 20 vs 20 for console that would be awesome.
I liked the SP alot actually. The characters in your squad are great. Listening to their conversations is funny and sometimes was even somewhat deep. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I liked the plane level of the SP. That was so fun just to tear into everything.
This game is the exact reason why I hope the current console generation is not dragged out to much longer...
They can do it. All they have to do is find a way to mix large scale warfare with exciting and frenetic close quarters action. If they can do this, they'll manage to satisfy both the FPS gamers who prefer strategic gameplay and those who enjoy fast-paced twitch shooters. They came close in Bad Company 2. Now they have to take it all the way.
Sounds like a threat..
Wrong. They're drowning.
Roll the DICE baby!
Fatality DICE wins
Must buy. Day one, looking awesome. Going to be some crazy mp action with this at the end of the year thats for sure.
Philoctetes Only trouble is some of the maps felt filtered. not all. Did you ever play BF2. Love the openess of it, go whereever you want, could sit by yourselve and have a smoke and not see anyone,lol. I think both series compliment eachother well, but BF3 looks to mold the two together, which is what was needed. I want to see this maxed on PC,DX11 and really want to see it running on PS3/360.
Sounds to me like Call of Duty isn't just treading water its wearing cement shoes in the roughest river in the world. Let's see how they fight something better in every way with the same game they released in 2007 with minimal change and the same issues that still have yet to be fixed after four games going on five.
*Clizzz is still too shocked by the Battlefield 3 Gameplay Teaser to comment, He is now watching the trailer a 6th time*
R.I.P COD, you just got bitch slapped to death.
everything must die!! ha ha ha ha ha
Battlefield is one of my favorite series to play on PC. Hope it does not disappoint.
im gonna end up getting both mw3 and bf3 but im pretty sure mw3 could be my last cod if its anything like bo...if its like mw2 i could get into it...
Might be worse since its with a new dev(sledgehammer). I always wait at least a month after cod games come out before I even look into buying(haven't bought in a while). Usually the hype train dies down by then and the real colors show.
BF3 is looking good. But are they using dedicated servers for consoles too? I'm so fed up with the happy go lucky CoD type host system. We need dedicated servers for console FPSs too...
Getting a bit cocky. Since the priority is PC, it will likely be as enjoyable as BF2, but I hope it won't be as buggy as it was as well. Still, gettin' cocky. Will probably be greater than the latest Call of Duty games when it comes to fun and variety of experience.
k chill it aint looking all that spectacular chill out. dont hype it up
Oi, Go back to your office desk in Crytek.
Battlefield 2 rocked the shooter world when it came out just because it had in-depth squad, commander, ranking, unlock system and vehicles; having 64 players and looking good for the time was a bonus. Bad Company 2 with the destructible environments changed gameplay a lot. (We can all tell that someone is a CoD nüb when they camp in a building's corner and we expose them with a grenade launcher). I think BF3 will be the next chapter for PC gaming. DX11 support, better physics, next generation graphics running on older hardware, and a fresh look on what BF2 established could make BF3 the next Quake II or Doom 3.
EA says its a Next Gen Game and I think their right. I cant see these graphics being plausable on the current consoles not even the PS3, and especially being multiplat!The video shows graphics far better than anything on ps3 to date even KZ3! These graphics have to be for PC on steriods! I would love too be wrong because this video gives me a boner :0! Battlefield > COD (With the exception of COD4)
Its interesting how Battlefield has kept at it regardless of COD's success. And it will pay off for DICE. For now though, its bout wiping those ISA scums off of Helghan, praise Visari!
