Trailer looked insane, amazing visuals to go along with it.
This jungle/beach level was my favorite setpiece they showed, and when that ship came in, crazy!

Now i hope 60fps removes the clunkyness of the controls on consoles for next gen which I am sure it will.

Holy-Hell that engine enables those Artists to make some great looking stuff!

(see what I did there? It's not "the engine" only... real people have to have real talent to make pix like that).

Game looks great, by far one of my most anticipated launch titles. I'm really curious to see how the higher player count effects console gamers.

"Battlefield 4 will also be available for Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation®4 at a later date."

That extra long description is kind of overkill though even with the marketing deal.

    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (55 minutes ago)

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (2 Hours ago)
