This game looks great. Glad they showed "REAL" (or as "real" as E3 demos are) gameplay.

I wonder if last gen was holding it back before

Definitely. I watched and read a lot of interviews with developers, articles on the subject of why cross gen games were bad, etc. It's not say that this couldn't run on last gen consoles, only that it wouldn't have as many features.

Last gen's restrictions were more about design than hardware processing power itself. By this I mean that the hardware constrained game design decisions more significantly than visuals, physics, etc.

In a way, you can always lower resolution or reduce visual effects, remove certain physics, but what kills you as a game developer is having to can/remove an entire feature/gameplay system because of hardware and technology limitations.

Xbox 360 was released in 2005 and PlayStation 3 was released in 2006. From a technology standpoint, the hardware and the technologies implemented in designing said hardware are obsolete.

and yet we are currently at the dawn of a new age of consoles that are constantly limited by that due to forward and backward compatibility. basically that first year or so of cross gen but plaguing the entire life of a console.

Yes, I remember thinking of how much more great certain games would have been if they weren't cross gen, Grand Theft Auto 5, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Watch Dogs, Shadow of Mordor, Mad Max (last gen versions were dropped very late in development, so it affected it the same), etc.

PS. In GTA 5's case, it was already in development long before the PS4 and XB1 were announced, but when one thinks of all the things that Rockstar added to the current gen versions, it's easy to see that if the game was developed from scratch with PS4 and XB1 in mind, it would have been able to do much more.

Car handling looks poor like the first game. Very woody controlling of vehicles it would appear. Also AA much?

the gameplay trailer was recently re-released with a clean version of the song, do you guys have this version in high quality too?

About the game


What's up?

    MikeManiac61 @SplitTongue: that sounds funny though, but alas people would get their panties in a twist over it. (30 minutes ago)
  • SplitTongue
    SplitTongue Not long ago, I've seen a funny fake movie poster of Martin Luther King being played by a white actor "for the sake of diversity". Can you imagine the backlash this would be getting? (44 minutes ago)
  • SplitTongue
    SplitTongue Personally I would've reserved the "V" to BF V(ietnam) (53 minutes ago)
  • SplitTongue
    SplitTongue Tbh I think the backlash is deserved. Fans asked for a ww2 setting, not an alternative past ww2 setting. If they wanted their designers to get creative they should've sticked to 2143 maybe ? (55 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: No, that is my whole point. If they put women and minorities in there, and that becomes a controversy (Remember Sarkeesian), than I will care. No reverse sexism and racism bs. All equal. (1 Hour ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 Watched the Frags video again which shows it in slow motion and it does look nuts but kinda intrigues me tbh. (1 Hour ago)
  • aphex187
    aphex187 I bet a lot of BF fans are creaming over the fortifications as if it's a new feature when in fact it was in BF:PR nearly 13 years ago lol! (1 Hour ago)
