Holy sh t. If these are all actually from gameplay, this may be the "Cleanest" looking game I have ever seen. I mean just look at the textures. Motion blur would only ruin this game.

Not really a traditional BF game, this one focuses much more on SP.

Looks really really great.

Based on the trailer of the game found in the forums at this link... I think these look more like target renders, rather than what the game will actually look like. Something fishy is going on here.

PS3 or 360 screenshots here being shown here or what?

Snoopers said this on NeoGAF "Looked exactly like this during the realtime demo."

Sounds like it's not bullshots, besides AA

It will have MP--but we need to stop pretending that it's not just Modern Combat 2. Not that there is anything wrong with that, as a lot of people really enjoyed MC.. but the game isn't the BF that many people know/love.

This is a LOT more than Modern Combat 2. This will be a REAL SP mode, not just playing against bots. Plus this adds a lot more features, like fully destructible environs...

But the gameplay will feel bland like Modern Combat... And that doesn't come close to the quality of BF2

why wouldnt these be real? they dont look unbelivable, quite normal screenshots, touched up in photoshop in the electronic arts manner, should be good.

The class design resembles MC, and that's what makes it MC2. Destructible environments aren't exactly a proven gameplay mechanic either.. nice idea, but how it actually impacts the game has yet to be seen.

The class design is what concerns me most, not single player, or destructible walls and foliage.. and that is what essentially makes it the sequel to MC. There are stories and characters now? Okay, even less like the BF I love :P

I'm not saying it will be a bad game--or even that MC was a bad game. But as a fan of BF2, it's a little disappointing that they're taking the franchise in this direction instead of focusing on its core. DICE has let me down big time in post game support, and with 2142.. which also isn't a bad game but could have been so much more. I hope they're working on winning me back over with the inevitable BF3.

Don't know if anyone has checked out the newest trailer, but it was hilarious. Graphics were nice, could use some polish, but it was explicitly stated to be early gameplay footage.

Sorry, but Shaka is right, but that's because BF has it's own feeling and way of playing it. I'm so gonna play this with my buddy, he's crazy about BFMC2.

Please say it isn't so! :(
I'm really looking forward to this. I hope to get a deep multiplayer. As much as i am enjoying CoD4 Beta, it's still too run and frag, not much teamwork and strategy as good old BF2 (and 2142 of course).
If its not this one, hell then it will be TF2 (i already scrapped QW:ET from my list after playing the beta...)

How can you know what the gameplay will be like yet? The game is coming in 08 right? MC felt like a quick and dirty way to profit with the Battlefield IP on consoles, this feels like they're making more effort...

What aspect of the class design are you talking about?

Anyways, the 'main' Battlefield IP is one of multiplayer only, class based, with vehicles, crappy bots and horrible single player. MC was a 'real' Battlefield game, just not a very good one.

If anything, you should be upset that this is yet another game that takes an IP in a completely different direction, for the sake of sales alone (put a big name on a game). I think this one has lots of potential, but it will be very different from the 'real' Battlefield games.
