I'm not a big fan of FPS, but this game has me salivating. Seems like it's going to be unmatched in the immersive department. Can't wait to get my hands on it.
Good god that gave me goosebumps. :D! At least we know we'll be getting an excellent port from DICE.
They just had to end it as the upgraded destruction engine goes into work. D: Still, it looks damn good!
When I saw the impact the RPG had on that building I was like ohhhhh shiiiitt!!! lol
I can already see the MW3 trailer sucking, compared to this anyway.
My social life and brand new marriage will end when this game gets released!!
Well I suggest you thank DICE personally because Marriage and Social Life are overrated.
Fuck Call of Duty. Im gettin this shit. Infinity Ward isnt even the same company anymore. Cant wait till March 30th
agree it does look incredible.i just hope dice makes a good port for the ps3 and hopefully looks indentical.I wanna see console gameplay
Same here I'm gettin the ps3 version and would love to see what it'll look like.
Damn Thrillhouse beat me too it, I had a load of open internet tabs on certain pages ready for when the trailer was released. Already had half the story written and ready to get approved but I wake up 5 minutes late and its all gone to shit.
:P When I got on the EA website it said there was only 1 View. I got lucky.
DICE...What have you done!? *faints*
awesome dose not cover this game
I...... am just ..........speechless. What can I say? This is an awesome B-Day GIFT -End statement
A thing of beauty.
I don't understand why is everyone jizzing in their pants for this,.. I mean I am a huge Battlefield fan for years and years,.. Hell I even got BC series,.. It looks great, but people are so overreacting to it,.. it is unbelievable ,... cannot wait to get it,.. but I for one do see kinda low polygon count on certain things,..I thought the tessalation would do more,..
You understand the term "pre-alpha" correct?
Where are the low polygon areas? Characters? weapons? buildings? AC Units????
Dont bother he was looking at COD BO video ;)
Sorry macky, any true BF fan plays for MP gameplay. Graphics are just bonus. Precision bombing on enemy armor using an F-15E with the rest of your squad 20 feet away waiting to cap the flag. THAT is what it's all about. The fact that BF3 will even have a campaign at all is gravy on my bacon cheesburger cake.
I second this. One hell of an accurate description here.
This game looks damn good.
Too bad the frostbite 2 engine can be recreated so easily by Trearch LOL. Its nice to see such attention to detail going into a quality product rather than rehashed COD game play.
This is what I've been waiting for. This will probably be the first REAL fps this gen.
i love the bullet destruction from the 50 i dont think that building was built to with very high standards. lol prone was kinda cool hopefully snipers will stop bitching. does this game have custom soundtrack?
Soundtrack? You're fighting in the midst of a war. The battle is your soundtrack! When playing online, sound is VERY important in BF (to hear sniper rounds passing by, approaching tanks, etc.). Music would just distract you and get you killed.
fuck that shit i wanna go in get shit done and jam out to invaders must die. lol
"i love the bullet destruction from the 50 i dont think that building was built to with very high standards." not to rain on your parade, but no matter how high the standards on a building are, that 50. cal is gonna destroy that building. it would make more sense if you got to shoot a 50 .cal at a scrapped L.M.T.V (light military transport vehicle) yourself.
Ohh "LMTV" military term...cool dude.
i ment the RPG round to the stone building.
@rioking hey well now you learned something. thats what they call it in the army, but its actually this little thing called abbreviations.
Modern Warfare 3 - D.O.A.
Battlefield 3 - Day One Buy.
As amazing as this is, and coming from a visual addict like me it's looking amazing. I'd love to see a console example. You can make anything look good when you have unlimited power (ala a 3k pc rig) but how they optimize resources using their new engine and on limited hardware such as consoles and still manage to blow our minds will be a real treat in my opinion.
Yeah, I'd also like to know the specs of the rig they ran this gameplay trailer on. My guess is it'll look real good on consoles. It will just be less than native 720P to make it happen (and likely won't have the extra-large map variants). I'll be tempted to buy both. The PC version so I can have the big maps and extra player count, and the console version to play with my buddies (most of them only game on consoles).
You won't need a 3k PC to run this. By the time BF3 hits, a mid range PC should be capable of maxing it out. That's a 500 quid machine. It's already known that this demo is being run on a single GTX 580. I dare say that a 560ti will get similar results seen in this demo.
Oh I'm very aware of that Dom. I was just saying that how they optimize limited hardware such as consoles and how nice it looks on those consoles should theoretically be a bigger "wow" factor than on something the community knows will be amazing since pcs can be tweeked.
One 580 gtx!? Awesome, mind providing a link Big_Dom? I'd love to read that if you don't mind!!!
For Pc users the optimization of code to run on systems has come down to video card optimization, us pc users have not seen a cpu limited game in ages. whats good about that is the fact the gpu manufacturers Nvidia Ati (intel sucks) have been releasing more and more supportive systems to help take advantage of the gpu in a few languages. OpenCL(ATI) CUDA(Nvidia) Physx(Nvidia) Stream(ATI) and dx11 pipelines. although the hardware is different, the SDKs are very supportive and heading in the same direction. all of this means the pc is becoming a much easier platform to optimize your code to get 100 percent of the performance available. making it easier to game on a low-midrange pc
I wouldn't be so sure if that was PC footage. Most of Frostbite 3 runs a deferred renderer (on the CPU, this includes the lightning system - see http://publications.dice.se... In some respects, some parts beat the i7 in the PS3 version (e.g. culling)). I also think, the res in that video is not too high - maybe intentionally to give it a softer look. It will look awesome on a PC, but I am sure the console version(s?) won't be far behind if at all. The lightning is what makes this game outstanding.
What's a "Call of Duty"?
A cow that is skin and bones.
I see what you did there.
Looks good but its looking like the most scripted game in history.Not jumping on this hype train yet,been bit too many times.
IMHO scripted is good, advances the story with drama, action, etc. E.g. the COD formula (played the hell out of the sniper mission in COD4). I didn't really enjoy BC2 single player because it was too....open? We'll leave the open sandbox business to the multiplayer. As they've said in interviews before, the single player game is more of a training wheel exercise for the multiplayer where the big boys play.
BC2 SP was too open? Oh my, what am I reading those days. It was a corridor, except that part in atacama.
chak_ -- its been awhile back since i've played it -- too open compared to COD anyway.
BF:BC was far from too open, it has the the same liniarity as god, but the edges are about 2meters wider.
Scripting is essential for story telling. Not sure what your beef with it is...
I remember the BFBC2 videos which were al PC related. When I got my PS3 copy, I was really dissapointed by the visuals and the campaign. I'm not jumping on that hype train again, only because of some short snippets of PC videos.
Oh nom nom nom My hard drive is waiting for you my beloved BF
Pure awesomeness! Can't wait
all i can say is WWWWOOOWWWW..who else wants to go out there and steal some demos discs...i kid kid
I am the 100% Uncharted fan. But I must say Uncharted 3 has some serious challenge here. Nice work DICE! Let's see how Naughty Dog can make Uncharted 2 as "Child Play", according to their PAX comment. And see how they can compete this crazy Frostbite 2 engine. We are the winner anyway!
I'd hope so. I throw R3 and KZ3 in here, too. This looks as good as those games. I hope Dice delivers - they use the same tech and seem to be willing to challenge those titles. At least someone tries! Go Dice!
im 100% too..lol still play multiplayer everynite
I can't stand the hype over this game, the graphics are good and has some amazing lighting and blur effects but nothing revolutionary here, its still just a military fps game been done hundreds of times, not hating or anything but honestly, this looks like another CoD-wannabe game.
COD wanna be? What in the hell are you smoking and have you played BFBC2 bcuz the game is nothing like it. So what makes you think this will also.
@j-blaze "Chewy? Have you even seen Star Wars? -Armageddon. Meaning "are you serious?" Have you ever played a Battlefield game before?!? I will not harp on you if you are ignorant to the series because that wouldn't be fair, but just because it's a modern day military FPS please do not think this is COD....even COD fans would agree... Yes, the game looks scripted like COD single-player but most of us, don't speak for all, are excited about the fact that this is a TRUE Battlefield game (thinking multi-player) on one badass "new and destructible" engine....something COD does not have....yes revolutionary... It's like saying "Oh, Skyrim is just like Ultima, just another fantasy RPG" There is a huge technical difference between the two. Were you expecting lightning bolts shooting out of Soldier's asses? I ask this in fun humor.
BF is waaay more complex than CoD, they aren't even in same genre. I'm not saying CoD is bad, but BF is way in it's own league.
I guess that COD was your first FPS?
