Does this look as good as Crysis or what?
Following on from Monday's dev trailer, EA has deployed several new screenshots of Battlefield: Bad Company - and it's looking flippin' great
this has just shot up my list, looks really good, if they can get the gameplay spot on this could be a sleeper hit of 2008
This game is looking very nice but this Screens aren't new
You think it will hit a smooth frame rate with that texture quality?
I sure hope so.
I hope so 2, this game is turning to be a must get on day one
Amazing screenshots :D I'm really looking forward to this game.
Btw I'm loving the smiley on the grenade, very nice touch :P
yes that was i nice touch, lets hope that makes it to the final version.
The framerate is terrible, devs should strive for good graphics and a smooth framerate like CoD4. The 360 has hit it's limits, why not make a smooth experience rather than what feels like walking through quicksand like Mass Effect does.
How do you know what the framerate is like?
from the videos ive seen the frame rates are shocking at best, but that will improve vastly (i hope) when they concentrate on optimizing the engine, this game still has a far time left in development so hopefully all this gets sorted before release, but with EA on the cover i guess we'll just have to wait and prey they dont balls up another very promising looking game.
EDIT: @ dhammalama: dude theres quite a few videos out there, even some on PSN, not sure about live. try http://www.gametrailers.com
EDIT: @ predator: yeah kind of right mate, optimizing the engine is generally one of the last things for a developer
i beleive but dont take my word that devs usally leave framerates till the end to smooth out, i think i read that somewhere.
but if EA f*ck up the PS3 version i wont be happy.
oh and no, i dont think its quite up with crysis, but it does look fantastic, id like to see some in their native res before i get to excited though.
hope its more than 24 players, bf needs to be at least 32 players.
i usually play with 64 on my pc, 24 players seems boring compared to this.
it dosent even come close to crysis but the smoke effects are out of this world plus crysis turned out to be a gr8 game so whether it'll be better overall we'll have to wait and see
Grass, fire and explosions look top notch..but that's where it ends. Roads, buildings, characters, vehicles, and any other surface for that matter, look meh.
If there's one thing I can't stand about a game is when a few areas look amazing and the rest doesn't measure up. That sort of inconsistency is horrendous, it's part of the reason why I'm a bit turned off towards Haze. Great looking characters and lighting...mediocre everything else. Uncharted got the consistent look right, why can't these guys?
That's a good point. I suppose the maps in these games have always been pretty huge, coupled with the massive amount of things you can do. I'll give them my nod in that case then, honestly didn't think of that. I doubt I'll like the game though. I bought modern combat a couple years back...sucked.
you want, online, you want 100% destructible environments, open level design, ranks/medals/achievements etc etc you have to drop some things.
but if you compare this to any of the previous BF games (on PC) this graphically blows them out of the water in ALL departments.
I understand what you're saying, but I don't see where the problems are. Everything looks awesome to me. I haven't played any high-end games in a while, but I can see that this game beats the hell out of BF2 on max settings.
Maybe I just have lower expectations.
Edit: Yeah. What mighty_douche said.
I'd rather have a stable 30fps frame rate and awesome graphics, then a 60fps rate with dumbed down graphics. Most of us won't notice a lower frame rate if it's rock-stable, only when it staggers.
After all, we all have seen movies, right? 24fps, but rock stable.
Edit: Sorry, I should say 24-30fps, but rock stable.
The smiley on grenade looks awesome but this is a game about enviroment destruction and only way to really see it is in motion (Though the explosion shot looks incredible).
theres quite a few videos out there. i urge you to go and watch a few, just dont pay much attention to frame rates, there are from EARLY builds.
these look better than uncharted.
if i see another topic post of "new screen shots" of old screen shots,i'm not going to go to a link ever again. er,i probably still will,who am i kidding. but you contributors got to stop that,at least say they're updated,what's so hard about that? anyways pics are kool :-)
the fun factor for me from 2142 is gonna be hard to beat. the new destructable envirnoments will def make me check it out.
Man I can't wait to get this game either for my 360 or PS3. The game is shaping up to be amazing and I think the devs said it would 24 players online and there would be deadicated servers.
Devs tend to optimize both the engines, levels etc towards the end after the Beta I think.
