E3: Images of Battlefield 1943

We forgot to post these images from the EA press pack, so enjoy these of Battlefield 1943. It seems still on track for a console release this summer, with PC version arriving in September.

It's 24 players actually, still a bit to few for my tastes but bf:bc was really intense with the same amount of players.

Oh well you are kind of right but there are so many things to do (ships,airplanes,tanks etc.) how olny 24 players can handle this?
Well thats smart from ea to make it less then 64 cause it was total chaos but its how the war look like and i really enjoyed 35-40+ matches ;)

64 player wake isn't total chaos with commanders and squads.

64 player wake games still work on Battlefield 1942. Sometimes when the admins aren't around you get assclowns ramming the destroyer using the carrier or driving em off map but usually the games are tight fun and if the Japanese team has good players they can easily dominate the allies and take over in under 20 minutes.

BF1942 still roxx

About the game

    KORNdog so it retained the photorealism of filmed footage, but you could still lean in and around and everything would shift with perspective. (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: I saw a few recent 360 cameras being advertised as VR cameras and they're 2D. I think 360 video is pretty cool in general though. (46 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog sony did quite a cool thing with a violin solo guy where they filmed it all with 3D cameras. but then converted all the elements into a 3D scene running in unity. (47 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I can kinda imagine VR in something like Battlefield being pretty incredible too but I'm not sure how well that would work with most people's stomachs. (47 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: yeah, i can't say i've seen any though. even the stuff on youtube is stereoscopic. it just requires a fixed head position. no leaning forward etc. (48 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog it can even stay third person, seeing as bound and the playroom VR platformer work really well. apparently FROM are making something for VR now though. i'm hoping for a new kings field. (49 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Getting annoyed at people marketing 2D 360 video as "VR" though.. that's not good enough. It's cool, but it's not good enough. (50 minutes ago)
