Battlefield 3 is without a doubt an amazing looking game, but these new screenshots are just breathtaking.
4 more images were added.
Honestly, at first glance I though it was a photograph of a soldier superimposed onto screenshots of BF3. That's absolutely incredible.
So ... I do believe DICE has achieved PhotoRealism. L.A. Noire currently in second. http://lggaming.files.wordp... I mean, it LOOKS like an actual human being. They weren't kidding about starting the next generation.
The teeth look so real it kind of scares me lol Now if these type of visuals can be preformed on current consoles. I will be very impressed.
i cant wait for the beta, and when the beta comes, i cant wait for the game.
the screens looks so life like, however, when we see it in motion it wont look as real because it may have predetermined animations on the face rather than having more interactive looking animations for the face like L.A Noire. Anyways who cares about facial animations, the game will be awesome. I built a new PC just for this game :P.
Not really. Remember some of the Crysis screeshots back then? They were in-game and looked absolutely life-like. Remember the Crysis vs real-life screenshot comparisons? Undistinguishable. Seen it in motion? Yeah, not photorealistic. Battlefield 3 does take it to a whole new amazing level though, but it's still quite a bit from photorealism in motion. Still, the game looks incredible and nothing out there comes even remotely close.
The face is soo freakishly realistic ! The clothes still need a bit of work until photorealism but overall it looks fantastic considering the scale.
la noire, are you joking??? la noire>> http://www.lensoftruth.com/... la noire looks like a ps2 game
@yamzilla L.A. Noire looks like a PS2 game? Wow. I think I've heard it all now.
L.A. noire doesn't have great graphics it's the animation that makes it look good...it has the most realistic animation in anygame so far.
Not even close to photoreal. It looks way better than what we've had before but there's still so far to go.
There goes the hope of me running this game on MAX
Every time I shoot someone in a next gen game I am going to feel bad they look so freaking real!!!!
I'm building my first rig just for this game. Worth it.
Completely agree with the first photo. Just amazing.
I have a hard time believing that is real considering this is a multiplatform game and exclusive games dont look anywhere near this good. Maybe its CGI but if that is the case then that is pretty much cheating and misleading to gamers.
DICE has never used CGI since Battlefield 1942, that was back in 2002. Why start now? This is all in-game, stop hating.
This game was built for pc first consoles are the one who gets the ports this time.
All in game running in real time. No CGI footage here. These are not even in game engine pre rendered trailers. It's all IN GAME FOOTAGE.
"Honestly, at first glance I though it was a photograph of a soldier superimposed onto screenshots of BF3" That's because it basically is (though I'd wager he's not a real soldier...likely someone from DICE, like Remedy did with Max Payne 1). The in-game character model faces are nowhere near that realistic...look pretty much like they did in BF:BC2. This is just smoke-n-mirrors, to create buzz...and pretty misleading, if initiated by DICE or EA.
Do even know what smoke and mirrors means in terms of gaming graphics? This is not smoke and mirrors at all.
Oh, not a single agree. Looks like your're talking balls.
So hows the job at Activision
Wait, Panda, you mean it's not?
These are ridiculously amazing. So, my first question: have these been certified as genuine screenshots? Because the facial detail is stupid good. It almost looks like a hoax (or a cutscene). The stuff in the background of the "tank guy" pics also doesn't seem to quite match the other tank screens. Looks more detailed. Why do the guys in the gunfight pics look so much less detailed than the tank guy? I dunno. I'm skeptical that all of these are in-game. I hope they are...
yea the 2nd one is very nicely done
someone should report this because i see sex.
Im fucking getting this game
Where are the screenshots, I'm only seeing photographs. That is incredible.
Those graphics...Oh my God...Wow...MUST-OWN.
Choir of angels *AHHHHHHH*
are they pre rendered or something, because this making want to get a brand new pc gaming computer just for this game :) last time i did that was for Star Craft 2 :)
Holy crap. Those can't be real.
This could happen real-time with Dx11 but on a very high-end PC like the one EPIC used for their Samaritan demo. Frostbite 2 can obviously pull this off, however I dont think DICE will put this much graphical fidelity as an option in BF3.
No, this is on 1/3 the graphics power that was in the Unreal Engine demo which used THREE nvidia 580s Many of the rigs running the game at E3 are reported to have a single 560 or 580 in them. Quite impressive
People talk about how Samaritan ran on 3 580's but as Epic stated they could probably get it running on a Ti 560 with good optimization. Some of the features in the samaritan demo are seen elsewhere, such as the bokeh depth of field. With battlefield we'll see displacement tesselation used on distant geometry as well, to create detail in hills and mountains.
@squidyj Oh yea definitely man, I know they said it was not optimized at all. I was just trying to explain that to run BF3 at max settings at 1080 and between 30 and 60FPS, I am almost certain a single 580 will do the job.
Wow! That's PS4 quality 1 - 2 years early! look at the scarf I love super high res quality! 64 of these realistic soldiers running around on screen will be amazing!
Thats pc quality today.
exactly...because the PC has multiple titles that look as good as this... you PC nuts are out of control lately...
Dude, that's leaps and bounds beyond any PC game currently available. The jury's still out on if these are in-game or pre-rendered. Obviously the bottom pics are in-game, but the "tank guy" pics? Why is he so much more detailed than the dudes in the gun-battle pics? And if those top pics ARE truly in-game, I guarantee that no PC you have currently will be capable of that. I'm pumped for both the PC and console versions of this game, but let's get real here...
@frostypants & Kleptic Try playing Crysis 1 (2007): http://img15.imageshack.us/... http://ui08.gamespot.com/19... http://ui22.gamespot.com/75... Even that old of a PC only game is very close.
Damn i hope the 580 drops in price before BF3 if not ill stick with a 570.
LOL Beastly. Either you're a PC fanboy or you're a PS fanboy, but you need to make up your damn mind. If you're not trolling the 360, you're praising the PS3. If you're not trolling the PS3, you're praising the PC. You're like a woman dude.
ps4 quality? Please tell me you're joking rig. This is ps8, jeez guys.
@frostypants Three things that Battlefield 3 and Frostbite 2.0 do that suggest that it'll be able to handle this without having to go to sli. I think that depending on resolution my 570 will be up to the task of rendering this monster all the way up to 1080p. 1. No Legacy Code - Frostbite 2 is built from the ground up to take advantage of the benefits of the DX11 pipeline including such small things as compute shaders which can drastically improve the performance of post process effects like blurs and even tone-mapping operations. 2. Modern Algorirthms - You might not know what it means but the Tile Based Deferred Rendering (TBDR) and excellent culling in Frostbite 2.0 allows the engine to get more done in less time by working smarter rather than working harder. This is th benefit of research and innovation and conferences like SIGGRAPH and GDC every year. 3. Modern Hardware - The directx API has changed and become more efficient, the techniques used by devs have changed and become more efficient. So to have the cards all of these operations run on, producing hardware that is capable of doing things in a cycle it might have taken 5 to do before. More than just raw horsepower these newer designs help improve performance by more efficiently meeting the needs of developers. Lastly, IF you're at all familiar with how Frostbite 2 calculates ambient bounce lighting data you'd know that the calculations are actually done on the cpu, producing a higher quality result without a similar cost to the rendering time. All of these combine to show us how That level of quality is perfectly reasonable to expect to be able to see on good quality machines when BF3 launches
note to self never mention consoles while PC gamers are around
AND DON'T YOU FORGET IT!
Boarder line photo-real. The holy grail of graphics. Of course that's all PC permitting.
"5 New Beautiful Battlefield 3 PC Screen" Fixed.
Well done lol
"5 New Beautiful Battlefield 3 CGI Screen" Double fixed
@paintsville Let me guess, your quest for more bubbles was in vain LMAO!!
...people actually think this is in-game. We've already seen 15 minutes of PC-only gameplay ; yes, it looks awesome...but not THIS awesome. The character models/faces are actually the weakest part of what was shown in the footage. There's no way this is an in-game character model. It's likely from a semi-live action cutscene or upcoming trailer, similar to what was done for Halo Reach. EDIT: Guys, I've got Crysis and Witcher 2 for my PC... the best PC exclusives available. NEITHER can come close to this. Yes, a computer can render a lifelike human face...it's done in movies, and CG demos all the time. But that processing power goes out the window, when it comes to enabling it, real-time , in-game. I have no doubt they could pull it off in an isolated, non-gameplay scenario...but that would basically be a cutscene. My point: that IS NOT what normal in-game character models will look like in BF3. If you think/believe that, you are simply fools.
I believe you have underestimated the power of PC graphic.
Quasi, name a single existing game that leads you to believe that the tank-guy images are likely actual in-game pics. Who on this planet has a PC that could render that in real time in a dynamic gameplay environment? C'mon. The tank-guy ones I mean...the bottom pics are clearly in-game. But those with the tank dude are beyond anything we saw in the alleged uber-quality tank gameplay footage we've been shown, and blow away the in game character assets we saw (or even see in the non-tank images). It doesn't add up, unless we're saying that not only was DICE sandbagging at E3, but they also are making a game that no PC will be able to max out upon release. @qwertyz below: SHOW US an existing example of a high-end PC running something that looks this good. You fanboys keep going on about PCs being powerful enough to do this, but unless you can back that up with some evidence, just stop...
How they conserved polygons on clothes and helmets are what make me believe the screenshots are in-games, becasue if its pre-rendered, why leave the clothes and other parts blocky except the face? They are down sized screenshots, things look more detailed when they are smaller, and I am pretty sure DICE would use a high end PC to take screenshots. Check out the screenshots below, although they are no close ups, but you can get a sense how detailed the faces are. http://cdn.gamerant.com/wp-... http://cdn.gamerant.com/wp-... http://cdn.gamerant.com/wp-... http://cdn.gamerant.com/wp-... Also, let's not forget, games can be released without being able to run on current hardware. Crysis was an example. With todays hardware, screenshots from Crysis with modded textures are photo realistic, especially when the images are down sized.
its in game you don't know what a high end pc is capable of do you ? technology didn't stand still for the past 5-6 years because of consoles please understand that and stop being in denial.
graphics on the PC is amazing i have a gaming PC but only thing i find about PC gaming is that theres a few really great game's but unless you're really into mmo's (which im not) theres really nothing that intresting to play steam is awesome tho i love steam! so smany good deals i'm playing Shogun 2 atm :P http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I cant believe people are disagreeing with you. This is CGI period. EDIT:CGI in this case means its not a part of the gameplay. These are probably from cutscenes and you just watch them like you would a movie. Avatar is basically one big CGI. Final fantasy does the same thing. Compare FF13 CGI cutscenes with real gameplay and you will see a huge difference. Its a cheap way to make your graphics seem better than they actually are. We have seen gameplay footage of this already and it DOES NOT look like this. Therefore it is pre rendered non playable CGI.
Do you understand what CGI means? Both in-game and pre-rendered graphics are Computer Generated Imagery.
None of this is CGI. You must be mistaken with console games and how hey use CGI to mimick in game action. Ala KZ2 http://twitter.com/#!/Chris... Read what she says...Its all in game
Before you calling other fools, pay more attention to the details like the clothes and and the helmet, notice how they are kind of blocky, and the helmet is not completed rounded? That's usually a sign of lower polygons, which makes me believe its an in game screen shot, not pre-rendered. If the screenshot is from a pre-rendered footage, they wouldn't have to limited the polygon like that. I say DICE are very smart on their in game models with hi-res textures and lighting. Just 2 cents from a guy who has been playing PC games since DOS.
Yeah man pga tour on old dos macs ftw lol one of my old favorite games lol.
The witcher 2 is a good looking game but I was underwhelmed by it, particularly the stiff facial animations and models. Oh and its not a PC exclusive as its coming out for 360 too. These screen shots may be from cutscenes or they may be in game, hard to tell at the moment, but to say its impossible is also foolish.
At E3, PRE-Alpha footage, you really think the visuals won't improve from that, let me quote yourself: "If you think/believe that, you are simply fool"^^
Man, I can't believe you think this is CGI, meaning it is pre-rendered... Look at the damn scarf-like piece of clothing on the solider, that is way too blocky to be wasting time with CGI. The whole POINT of CGI is unlimited resources besides creativity and artistic skill. You think they would keep the poly count that low for CGI!? This is PC screenshots, and direct feed, not screenshots of the video of the E3 Tank demonstration.
One of the programmers from DICE has confirmed the screenshot from the Tank Demo at High setting: http://twitter.com/#!/Chris... Who is the fool now?
