PCGamer : The Finals is a team-based shooter from ex-Battlefield devs, and you can definitely tell.
FINALLY!!! weird how hardware and software capabilities for destruction in games has continued to evolve greatly and yet no one has been doing it. Been wanting physics and destruction to come back to the spotlight for a LOOOONG time, especially with these new consoles as the leap in CPU power could easily pull off some amazing stuff. I hope this game is a success, i want to see more like this
The fact that Bad Company 2 had the destruction that it did on 360/PS3 yet that seems like it was the peak is insane to me. Seems like developers focused too much on graphics and forgot that physics plus environmental interaction are more important for gameplay.
Yeah, and Killzone 2 was pretty impressive in that area too, with damage to masonry, gas cammisters catching fire and dancing around, that sort of thing. Another game from the PS360 era.
BC2 was great, but Red Faction: Guerrilla had even better destruction. Can't believe all that tech was basically binned in their future games - Saints Row reboot :(
i think it has to do with the work they have to do they get it to work properly. All that rubble falling must not be easy to program especially without bugs or glitches
There really was that sweet spot near the beginning of the ps3/360 era where interactive physics and destruction were really being pushed. I feel like we're in a perfect time for that to come back with the new CPUs, just waiting for them to notice and do it, hopefully this game is the first step.
This looks freaking awesome. Looks like what Battlefield should have evolved into.
Another battle royal!! yay, we don't have enough of these! Cannot Wait...
I'm hoping it will have traditional team modes. I'm also sick of Battle Royale. I can play Battlefield, Cod, Halo,Gears, Killzone and know on my worst days playing with randos I have a 50 percent chance of winning. Playing Apex lately, just a bunch of sweaty pros even in silver ranks where just getting in the top 10 out of 20 in the match makes me feel like I accomplished something because my teammates are on the other side of the map or not trying to get inside the ring. A shame because I had a lot of fun the first two years.I don't have a consistent schedule so I can't find reliable teammates, just give me respawns so it doesn't feel like I wasted 10 minutes trying to get a weapon that doesn't feel useless without finding 10 different attachments for it.
It’s not a BR though
"Team-based shooter" Not Battle Royale... Also, even if it was a Battle Royale. It would be far more unique than 90% of what's out there currently.
Don't play it then, not everything is made for you selfish twit.
bad company 2 ARICA HARBOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!
Always loved the destruction in battlefield. Created an immersive experience. Not sure why devs abandoned it, maybe it's time consuming or something.
Looks amazing! Really hoping the game makes its way to consoles.
Awesome ive been looking for a new FPS after BF has been ruined, heres hoping it comes to consoles and is awesome
Wanted this since Mercenaries.
I remember when Mercenaries 2 was going to let us knock skyscrapers into skyscrapers to create a domino effect. Then the game got rebooted mid development and was worse than the first one.
EA is all over these games butchering them before launch
SERIOUSLY! i miss mercenaries so much, it could be amazing in current hardware. I feel like Avalanche could do a great job with that ip
Indeed avalanche would be perfect.
Seems really promising. It must be really challenging for devs to design a map when this level of destruction is possible. Games like COD and BF are very careful to have certain chockpoints and sight lines, this changes that a lot.
Ahhh reminds me of red faction games. Love it.
Can I have a real rainbow 6 game please where your ordering an AI squad to place shape charges on doors while I flank through an air duct?
in an alt. reality ...where ubisoft continues to be late-90s-early-2000s ubisoft ... yea you can not in this one. Ubi prefers to make "tom clancy punk rock mosh pit"-gibberish games now instead. ... basically, if they decide they'll remake the first R6 game faithfully without any live service injection - then yea, there's hope
Back when thought games like Red Faction, Killzone 2, Mercenaries, Black, etc would usher in a new age of interactive physics destruction. When we saw 8 days tech demos destruction and it was cancelled. Same with Killing Floor. Next gen games start with giving gamers what we see above in the gif. In flat games and in VR. The fun factor would be insane. Not pretty background objects that do nothing when interacting with it.
This tech was done with Red Faction Guerrilla on super duper last gen consoles like PS3 and 360! I wanted developers to focus on that so much back then man! The multiplayer for Red Faction at the time was really fun, especially with the hammer 🔨 for melee combat. They should reboot Red Faction Guerrilla for PS5 and Series X and build that game for the ground up for those consoles and PC. We should be seeing earthquakes destruction as well now in games. Time for a game like this to compete against COD and Battlefield. We need something different!
Control had pretty good environmental destruction too.
Looks good, unfortunately it's way too fast for my aging mind and hands lol.
Well it’s gonna be downgraded for the final release but still it look good
Bring it to consoles/ps5.
I feel like these sort of demos pop up every few years but never actually come to fruition. Hopefully this time is different.
Don’t worry it won’t look like this. Don’t know why people do this every single release, every single year. It’s like people have the memory of a fish.
