Don't get misled by the trailer.. it says [in-engine], which does not equal [in-game]. (too bad :( In-game will definetly look the same :D, just not at such a steady framerate.

Thx blim! Can't wait to see the DF version! n_n

Who's to say it will definitely look the same? Tech demos and videos showing new engines always look a lot better than the final game though there are some exceptions.

hmm, i bet EA used Photoshop on the images.

I saw it at On the Spot. It is the same just one swedish dude is talking about it like couple of minutes and done.

The video is in-engine and ran in realtime at ~25FPS. November build. The game will be released more than a year later. If anything it'll look BETTER. Crazy.

This looks really impressive, Kojima-san better watch out, MGS4 easily has a graphical contender here.

Flick between the static image and the HD capture from the trailer. Only difference is brightness.

This game comes out in 2008.

Getting better. The edge blurring of BF:MC is not present in these shots. A laudable decision as it can only improve the overall fidelity. So thumbs up and F*CK EA :).

I was never interested in this game until I watched that trailer...the trailer really surprised me; it was funny, entertaining and unique...it even makes fun of the narrator`s voice :D

"Do we look like brothers to you?!" – funny stuff!

Those characters actually have "character"
I am now looking forward to future videos/info on Battlefield: Bad Company :)

There seems to be some confusion surrounding "in-engine" and "in-game."

"In-engine" refers to anything rendered in real-time via the engine. It's what the gameplay will look like, usually. The noteworthy exception would be the cutscenes of Halo 2, where they were rendered in-engine, but with noticeably better lighting than the gameplay.

"In-game" is just that. Anything in the game is "in-game." Generally this term is used when showing actual gameplay, though, as the footage is taken directly in the game.


There are also people doubting whether this is real-time or not. I have not played the game, but considering 100% of the media released on this game has looked equal to the video provided, along with EA's and DICE's word that this is 100% in-engine, it's pretty safe to assume this is what the final game will look like.

Hopefully that clears some stuff up.

Wow, that was awesome.
"do you never stop talking? God, just shut up."

Very clever, if the game itself is anything like this, i'm interested.

Ahh, so the frostbite engine means, that we can finally destroy the "barrels of dooooooom" :D

    Tiz @amerakindesi: Staten along with Marty O'Donnell was a key figure at Bungie and is now Senior Creative Director at Microsoft, he joined too late to influence Halo 5, but just in time to start Halo 6. (3 Hours ago)
