Battlefield 3 character's legs will be visible at all times and there will be different controls for changing kits and arming and disarming objectives.
nice to see Mirror's Edge will be influencing the future of the FPS genre.
Many FPS games have feet visible all the time...whats the big deal..just to name one...Halo? Pretty dumb news though.
There was Halo, but what else? Not many others throughout the past decade. It's mostly because it can add a billion more animation complications. But I specifically mentioned Mirror's Edge because DICE also made that.
Dark Messiah: Might and Magic also has feet visible all the time.(2nd place in gametrailers best graphics of 2007 after oblivion, go check it out)
Call of Duty you can't look at your feet :P
Latest Alone in the Dark, Crysis 1 and 2, All Fear games. Im pretty sure even 1 or 2 ps2 games done this
Also Brothers In Arms Hell's Highway.
L4D... not L4D2 though...
thief 3 and tribes 2 did that a LONG time ago... but yeah, a announcement like that in 2011 is very strange...
@ MRHARDON - And you felt the need to bring up COD why?
you can see your feet in killzone as well
Not to mention DICE made Mirror's Edge....influencing themselves?
big difference with the way mirrors edge does it, was brilliant immersion, great game.
Mirrors Edge is a great innovative title just like portal. If the immersion of First person will be as good as Mirrors Edge and with BF3 graphics then this game will have one of the best immersion in a video game ever.
Look at the way he talks "t's mostly because it can add a billion more animation complications" talking like that just discredits yourself. Billion eh? lol...
Billion was an exaggeration. Hyperbole. I have the Mirror's Edge strategy guide, and in the back it has developer interviews. I'll go fetch it now. Directly from the book: "But there was still one big, big problem to overcome. [Owen] O'Brien wanted a game using the first-person perspective but, with some notable exceptions - Tresspasser, Breakdown, The Chronicles of Riddick - the view in such games is limited to a gun floating in the middle of the screen. Players can't look down and see their feet. "Technically, the genre known as first-person shooters should be renamed first-gun shooters," jokes Johannes Soderqvist. For DICE's first-person movement game, things would have to be very different. To orient themselves in the world, players would have to be able to see their feet and their hands would always be in the shot. Senior animator Tobias Dahl was unequivocal: It couldn't be done.[...] Dahl's attitude wasn't defeatist but based on experience. Creating an animation rig for the character of Faith would be difficult because, for the complex parkour moves to look cool from the player's perspective, her arms and feet would have to be very unrealistically proportioned. For example, her arms would need to be long and attached to narrow shoulders. But for the in-game shadows to look right, there would have to be another realist animation running simultaneously. That would double the amount of animations to be created, and there were going to be hundreds of animations to create." There's more but I won't bore you. Anyway, you should be able to detect everyday rhetoric devices like hyperbole. It seems most people here understood what I meant.
Thank god it wont be B to pick up kits and arm the bomb, that got annoying.
definately mate, I was just playing Rush about 10 minutes ago and went to arm the bomb and picked up an engineers kit instead lol
Guess Rush is confirmed for BF3 then >_>
so ? whats wrong with rush ?? i like it
I don't mind rush. I was just skeptical if they would bring rush from a sub franchise to the actually BF franchise. I'm glad they did tho, but not sure what old BF fans think of taking things from BC series.
Rush is a great game mode its tactical and requires team play + it utilizes alot of game mechanics in a great and fun way i dont remmeber any other games doing it before so its innovative its like capture that flag with a twist to it all of this means its a great mode and should be in all BF games from now on if Old BF fans dont like it then thats nothing but trying to be ""retro cool"" which sucks TBH they need to get with the times and realize how great rush is as a game mode if they dont its fine they can play other things its not like they are forced to they can chose other modes but saying that rush is running BF is just stupid
This is great. For some reason I always look down in game to see my feet. Im always wondering why im levitating
Cool cool cool, nice idea to separate controls for arming and switching kits.
I love seeing my feet, but no game except ArmA 2 (1) let's you view your whole body. That was dope. RUSH! Tasty stuff. It's all looking good on the BF front.
Arma3 will be amaing next summer! It look as good as BF3!!
Crysis lets you view your whole body as does the Fear series.
That's great. I hated that switching kits and arming/disarming used the same buttons. Got me killed several times and prevented me from disarming in time! And that's great that they're showing feet at all time. It will be perfect for the people that have one of those Foot Fetishes! Haha I kid I kid. Glad rush is making a return.
Tweets should be labeled as such before trying to sell it off as a real article.
Well it was from the devs, so I think it's okay. Also, if you notice, Demize99 is on the cover of the BFBC2 box art in the lower-left corner. :)
Hmmm...that could get a little confusing. 0_=
I agree. But I am assume he meant that you will be able to view your feet when ever you want to.
...I guess my "wink" 0_= wasn't enough of a clue that I was joking.
I was on the fence about Battlefield 3 but now......*runs to the nearest game store to preorder it* /s I really don't care, in Half-life, you were basically a floating gun but that doesn't take anything away from the experience.
Thats great actually...Its small but it matters.
Teabag while looking down will be funny.
Nice touch...but I really don't care.
