Check out some footage of Battlefield 3.
I'm super excited for BF3, but this footage isn't that great. I'm not too sure, but the BF series really hasn't had any indoor maps, so this is kind of new. I sure hope they stick to the outdoor, large scale maps that made BF2 sooooo good.
The map is called Metro, and there's only a section of it that's indoors/underground.
All I can say is OUCH..looks like Dice went from Super Human quality to human..not saying it looks bad..but if you swapped the name with MW3.it wouldve taken some HUGE hits from it's haters..
No wonder EA_dice are running around trying to hide this...lol...watch it in 1080p...WHY, it looks bad enough at 720p. :/
Seriously, is this the next gen engine in the current gen or is this the " it's the same as everybody else's game ".
Lock at those textures...no doubt Dx11. :o
I really REALLY hope that's the amazing PC footage. It's not bad but far from what was promised. The hindenburg comes to mind...Ohhh the humanity.
It's a closed alpha with the purpose of testing server loads. Supposedly, you can't change the graphic settings.
You lot are obviously mucho retardo, happen to notice the "ALPHA" part of that title? CLEARLY older code than what was shown at E3....
PPL relax ... this is a client version game ... much like remote desktop connection game.
Game is not physically present on any of the computers who are participating in the game ... they are accessin it through internet ... much like streamin video.
You can say its kindof of line onlive service.
And next thing ... either you guys are trollin or serious lack common sense ... this is a huge scale maps games ... not like corridor shooting and second this is ALPHA ... what part of it you dont get it.
Anyone who is gonna judge graphics of this game based on ALPHA code ... are bunch of retards.
Wanna proof this game is being streamed to clients ...
check this footage out and artefacts coming up, much like justin.tv when video streamin is having problems.
Some really ignorant people in here.. (Inside_out)
Yeah allycat I'm getting the same vibe. last thing I need is another corridor twitch shooter. I wanna like this game but this vid makes it look like a call of duty mod for bad company 2.. they even use the same voice actors if you listen closely. need some 'outdoor map' footage real bad...
Real bad indeed. Have we seen any vehicle footage other than the tank stuff DICE showed off at E3? I'd LOVE to see what the helicopters and jets look like.
How about being patient? Since release date is end of October, I guess they will wait till release day gets close to reveal more info. Remember Gran Turismo 5? Everything was silent until a day or so before release day. And finally, there WILL be huge maps. If you actually done some research you would know. I pre-ordered BF3 and I should be getting 'Back to Karkand' expansion. Karkand is a rather big map. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Just some footage of Karkand from BF2, and Pre alpha BF3.
The Sound design is incredible.
thats what I noticed! the sound is some of the best ive heard!
defiantly not your typical Battlefield map. my fear that while this might be part of the map...most of the battles will take place down here. If there are enough battlefield vets, im sure that wont be a problem...but the noobies to the series who have spent there time playing COD will flock to this area, disagree if you want but you know it will happen. also, gotta love campers eh.
This is bound to be taken down very soon.
Who knows, it might have been leaked by EA.
nothing to be blown away about.. even for alpha
why has the quality dropped so drastically? i don't get it...
someone disagreed with a question? seriously I would like to know if I'm getting these graphics. how can you disagree with a question? that's logically impossible. N4G is a fanboy haven.
Considering it is alpha and it appears all the have to control graphics is a single preset that doesn't work a lot of the time, that is why. From what I hear, this alpha is about testing servers mostly, not so much for the users to talk about graphics bugs and so on, they don't need testers for that.
Thanks for the intelligent reply. It's rare here.
Red2tango, google tampon and find yourself a nice deal for a pack of hundred because clearly it's your time of the month.
^ mate ur not funny, ur a dick. red2tango: you are right man. They should IMO get rid of the disagree button on this site because most of its users are complete dicks!
I think the game engine will drop to whatever your hw can handle. See the attached video, run on an Athlon X4 @2.9GHz, HD 5850 I think it is much better, but video card is not top of the line http://www.tomshardware.com...
dont even know the setup this was running on. i dont have to be blown away by visuals. cause once you get used to the eye candy, then the gameplay becomes more important. thats what keeps me coming back. looks solid i guess
The sound effects are beautiful!
I was noticing that as well. BC2 is probably one of the best sounding games I have ever heard and this sounded even better.
I agree, when you hear weapons firing next to you in BC2 they sound like beasts. I played COD recently and the guns sound like crackles
That's all I can agree with also, it reminded me more of a Call of Duty game than Battlefield.
since when call of duty had good sounds?? u need a new set of ears
sfx are fkn crazy good
The lighting looks amazing. It looks like the damage has increased a little bit from BC2. The sound effects are great as well. CAN'T F!#!ING WAIT.
GET IT WHILE IT'S HOT. RE-UPPED http://www.gamefront.com/fi...
video is private. :( edit: didnt see you posted that it was gone.
looks amazing, cant wait for the beta!!
looks pretty good for alpha
Superb sound design!
EA is only showing PC because they know the console versions wont look much better than Call of Duty BO.
You think this is EA showing us footage? This is leaks from the PC alpha to test the servers...
The console version will be better than MW3 and I am sure of it. However if you say Uncharted 3 then no. And Black Ops looked terrible, game lasted me a week before i traded it back in. Waste of money.
@irepbtown Lol the tiny linear areas in UC being compared to the unbelievably huge levels of BF? Really?
Looks great and it's going to look great on my brand new PC as well. I'm SO excited for this game!
I don't understand why people are trying to compare CoD from the video I just saw that is nothing like CoD. Everyone has their own preference. Arcade or more realism. Just because they are both first shooters does not mean they are going to be in the same family. They are more like distance cousins that are a completely different race.
Are there any CoD MW3 _multiplayer_ videos out there?
No sir I don't believe so.
I disagree, this could have been posted as MW3 alpha footage and most people here would have been fooled... To say two first person shooters set in modern times are not in the same family is absurd. Looking very generic BF3 just now, hope they pull something out of the hat to excite me.
I disagree with that, I highly doubt people would have mistaken that for the IW 4.0 Game engine. It looks alot better than that. Battlefield 3 is using a whole new game engine so of course alot of testing will come with this. As well as visual restrictions until the game goes into beta build. I am not biased on any series. I play my CoD of the Xbox and Battlefield 3 on my PC. And I can with most certainty and no regret say that I do not believe they are in the same family. If they were both trying to say be arcade shooters then I would greatly understand all the competitiveness between battelfield fanboys and CoD fanboys. Its like comparing Halo and Crysis. They are the same genre but play differently.
To me it looks like it will play just like CoD games and most other modern shooters. Should withhold judgment until closer to release but the amount of love for BF and hate for CoD around here is extremely disproportionate which is why I am questioning whether the two games are wildly different. I'm also getting pretty bored of the fps genre recently, which will probably only be cured by bioshock infinite.
For anyone who thinks those are the final graphics... come on, that was quite obviously not the finished product. The gun, and some of the scenery was quite obviously not the retail quality textures.... it doesn't take the usual idiotic fan-boy exchanges to work that out!
If you ask me it looks like console alpha footage to me, anyone else agree? if thats the case as long as it looks better than bfbc2 i dont care. looks good.
Wow that was freaking beautiful.If that was only tha Alpha stage then WoooooW.After playing UC3 beta I have been looking for a new shooter.And Im about to buy BC2:Ultimate Edition.So I can get ready for BattleField 3 release. Hopefully BC2 will stay in my PS3 until UC3 n BF3 are released ;) Yes I will be a noob so work with me ;)
one word of advice.....practice flying on your own time on an empty server.
Don't ruin everybody's fun by killing team mates with your lack of flying skills.
Anyone who has downloaded and watched the the BF3 multiplayer trailer on PSN can see that the graphics are going to suck. It looks grainy and not much different than Bad Company 2.
looked and sounded good to me could use some more polishing i guess.
I'm on my iPhone ATM, and the vid won't load. Will have to check it out later.
This guy is such a conservative player and really just not fun to watch. Sucks that we didn't see somebody else's perspective :(
Thats the first thing I was thinking. We get some guy hiding and crouching every 5 seconds.
*yawns* Oh well, that was... something.
I really got the Mirror's Edge vibe from watching this, remember the subway level?
