IGN released footage of two new Battlefield 3 Multiplayer maps. One is a large open desert and the other a tight close infantry map.
These maps look absolutely mind blowing!
The firestorm one ... looks effin amazing ... money well spent towards pre-order. It also shows that it doesn't have any nasty bugs that beta is having.
See now that's the battlefield maps we love. Can't wait gonna be amazing game
This is some nice, well needed damage control after they lost a ton of preorders and gave us that awful Operation Metro Rush map. Great stuff though, this is what Battlefield is about, they look gorgeous. I don't mind infantry focused maps, but man, Operation Metro was just bad IMO.
these maps look stunning! but i find it amazing how much people's opinions can differ. i love operation metro i think its a superb infantry only map. my fav part is the top of the subway, ticket booth area.
I don't know, I found the map to be a very poor representation of Battlefield. Even the worst infantry based maps in Bad Company 2's Rush mode were open enough to feel as if you had a sense of freedom, Metro was very funnelled, predictable, and there are some huge issues with camping, especially spawn camping at the last set of MCOM stations. Like you said, it's an opinion, but it didn't leave a good impression on a lot of people and seeing these maps is a bit of a reassurance
Yeah, i dont mind Metro either, although i am sick of playing it at this stage. I dont like the start though if you're an attacker, the approach is too narrow and its pretty easy for the defenders, or at least should be. I like the tunnel but the last part, out on the street, definitely my favorite. @-Alpha. Agree about it being a very poor representation of what Battlefield is all about.
This is what Dice should have showed off in the Beta...
hey had to give us they awful beta, due to certification process by sony and ms that took too long.
Omg jizz jizz all over my screen:P.
AMAZING MAPS!!! even the Rush version of these will be awesome!! CoD is about to get smashed in the mouth...
I read ps3 for some reason.
i dont know. it looks like it says press B to enter the vehicles> and W and 9 when he is in the jet
you can play with 360 controller on pc maybe some find it it easier to have their 360 controller connected once they get into a vehicle thats when they use the controller
Nice. I really like the second one. Hate watching guys playing with high sensitivity, gives me a bad dose of motion sickness.
Grand Bazaar footage is from the PS3 version!!! Thank God it looks a LOT better than the beta version available!!! No one fell below the map and not any noticeable screen tearing! 28th October in Europe... Come on...
Wow after seeing baazar I am no longer worried as much for the console versions. It looked incredible!
Notice how there is no screen-tearing or frame rate issues in this footage of the new build? unlike the PS3 version of the Open Beta. Very good work, Dice :)
but still, they showed good preview at the e3 demo but still managed to get screen tearing. lets see what happens when the game actually comes out. should be all sorted i guess.
I am really impressed by the PS3 gameplay as well. See, that's what I was promised by DICE all those months ago. I can admit I had a knee jerk reaction to the beta, but a lot of people did. I was wrong. I'm sure some people won't let me forget it but, but I was wrong.
Even though the website link is ps3.ign.com, the footage is undeniably from the PC version. It's too smooth and too high res for the PS3 (I have a PS3, played BC2 and the BF3 demo on it). The last map looks more like traditional BF2, but the play area is REALLY really small. Want to see epic BF maps from BF2? See the link below: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The comments on that link say hes playing on PS3..not sure if that actually true though.
Firestorm(conquest) map is PC. Grand Bazaar (Rush) is on PS3. Look at when he is switching guns or C4ing the tank, ps3 buttons.
Of course Bazaar is PS3. Just look at how the player aims down his sights! He taps a little left, then he taps a little right, just like in real life.
Yep, I agree, I was referring to the video posted in this article. Go to the website, and the 2nd video is PS3. Difference in quality is noticable. Still havent seen jets gameplay in any console version yet.
Way to come around man, now you know what a beta is Chuk5.
See people, patience is a virtue. I knew DICE would pull through.
