NowGamer: DICE has detailed the three main types of destruction in Battlefield 3, confirming that set-pieces - like MW3 - will be largely scripted...
only major set pieces in campaign e.g the earthquake.
OH I see. It's not only MW3 eh? Haha. Show me console footage dice.
unlike MW3 BF3 has destruction which isn't scripted obviously... don't try and compare the two.
Well if you want something to happen consistently in a SP mission its going to have to be scripted isn't it? If you want a plane to crash into the ground, so that the player has to go and rescue him as part of a mission - that is scripted. If things weren't scripted, there would be no consistency - I mean, come on. Use your brain here. The difference between MW3 and BF3 is that the majority of destruction in the BF3 is unscripted, whereas with MW3 it will be all scripted (unless you count 'shooting glass' - anyone else remember how Robert Bowling said "we have great glass in MW2" f**king lol)
i don't care if some is scripted, if that is what will work best, go ahead dice, i want this game to work the best it can
play bf bc2 and see what destruction really is . judging by bc2 i have full faith in dice to deliver destruction in bf3
@Caleb_141 Bingo. Major story events will always be scripted, no matter what. However, how you get from Point A to Point B is where the game really shines. Battlefield you can drive through the narrow roads in town and try to shoot your way through. Or you can level a few buildings and take a short cut. The possibilities are endless. No such freedom exists in any shooters today.
BF3 has almost all destruction non-scripted. It's the large scale set pieces that get scripted destructibility, which is understandable. COD games only have scripted destructibility, on a second thought... i'm not even sure those games have any destructibility.
haha now compared to CoD how many pepole are going to support this haha :)
Finally people can stop using the unscripted vrs scripted argument for comparing COD and BF3. @Movements I agree I want to see console footage too to make a judgement. To everyone already saying BF3 will be better than COD please wait for gameplay footage because at the moment for consoles imo they are neck and neck because we haven't seen console footage for BF3 and for COD e have seen one console (could be engine driven) trailer. This fanboy war is the most stupid war. At the moment I am not going to get either until I get more information edit: I know BF will use non scripted destruction for small buildings but people saying we can blow down skyscrapers was so stupid. Do not believe everything you see in a trailer
So stop hating, unless you're that oddball PC gamer.
I just hope BF3's single player will be entertaining. Bad Company 1 and 2 single player campaigns were average at best, even though their online multiplayer were fun.
Wait so r u gonna buy a game based on destruction!!..What happened to the fun factor???? We all know BF3 will b better than COD MW3 but COD MW3 is where the fun factor will b...Hate it or love it COD has the best Online Fun factor for an FPS this gen. I enjoyed killzone 3 wen it came out but it did not last long and i went back to playing COD black ops.
Yes but Destruction is what battlefield is known for since Bad Campany 2, and I dont want anything less.
More like "piss me off because the game is so unbalanced" factor.
@tmoss Dont blame the game cuz u suck :) Also Red Faction has better Destruction so :O yeh :)
@ Blackboijones I'm just curious what this fun factor is in Black Ops you're talking about. You run around, shooting stuff. Not much different than other shooters. Only you are doing it in a bland world of mediocre graphics and poorly executed death animations. For some reason kills don't have much of an impact; as opposed to KZ for instance where a kill is much more satisfying. And more fun in my book.
U mad? http://img861.imageshack.us... LOL haters gotta love em ;)
Still a little worried about how this might look on consoles...
I'm sure it will be fine BC2 was fine so it shows DICE can work with consoles, obviously it won't be as amazing as the PC counterpart but I think it will still look amazing.
I hope they fix the screen tearing and pop in BFBC2 had.
Seing how Crysis 2 look on consoles I have no doubt DICE will be able to compare themselves with that Crytek did.
I'd be happy with graphics on-par with BFBC2 on consoles, although I'm pretty sure BF3 will look better.
The graphics will probably look better than compared to BC2. I really want to see what MW3 environmental destruction is going to look like for MP. We already know BF3 will have great unscripted destruction for MP.
@MWong Boxes, glass and scattered papers.....Id be shocked to see any structural damage in the MP
. CRAP DOUBLE POST!!!
I agree. BC2 was alright graphically, certain parts did look really good. But overall it was the awesome gameplay that won me over over the sub-par(imo) graphics. But after seeing the BF3 footage for the pc I have to say my hopes are really high. I will get it and love it no matter what, I'm sure. But I would like some awesome graphics.
Things like this is why I want next-gen consoles! They will be able to have much more of non-scripted destruction and other features that takes a lot of power :) Destructibility is an "expensive" feature.
hopefully with next gen console we can see the next BF go up to 64 players the same as PC, if not higher without having to lower other settings i.e graphics. either way PC will always be ahead, if I had the money I would build a PC and keep it up to date as much as I could, sadly I'm not that rich.
You don't have to be rich to build a gaming rig that will play all games out now in high detail. http://www.ibuypower.com/St...
It's scripted in the game for storyline purposes. No matter if its 5 years ago or 5 years from now, all games will need to have scripted events at some points in order to tell a story. Either way, after watching the trailer, it's pretty convincing how it was scripted. Unlike games such as Homefront with invisible walls, christ what a terrible design decision.
wow this dumb idiot took out a small snippet from that PAWN episode and uses it as a bait. The only parts that will be scripted are cut-scenes THAT'S IT! Everything else is on the fly real-time destruction.
Yeah explain the debris warping from space time middle top of the screen. http://h5.abload.de/img/bf3... Could be the gif software cut some frames so yeah.
That looks like a glitch, glitches only occur when everything happening in REAL-TIME! And how does that prove it's all scripted when the player is clearly blasting a random building?
