Battlefield 3 Unveiling at GDC 2011
mmmm more battlefield goodness, I hope it's everything BC2 is and more. also crysis 2... drool... hope that ships this year too.
I can't wait! Once I get to Level 50 in BC2 the impatience will begin!
Hopefully they ditch Punkbuster and go with the Steam cheating prevention. I doubt it though, they are probably using the save engine as BC2.
They're using Frostbite 2.0 this time around, as opposed to the FB 1.5 BC2 is based on. Hopefully they'll revise some issues in 1.5 and make BF3 much more enjoyable.
PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.......ah man....this game better not let me down
I wish to dolphin dive, I want to have epic diving battles.
BTW, for all of you XP users out there, DICE has said they will drop XP support with BF3.
I hope BF3 is something that will finally push PCs back where they need to be: the bleeding edge of the gaming industry. I don't care about having to support consoles, if you really want to show the world what you can do, develop a PC version separate. Otherwise, we'll be stuck with 5+ year old shit because of the console crowd devs cater to.
The BF3 Beta will finally make my MOH Limited Edition worth something
Oh thank god. pc.ign.com. No offense but the genius who linked to the XBox article instead in the BC2 clubhouse really started my day off wrong!
that would be me and she is a genius. the XBOX 360 article is the exact same word for word so relax.
First of all that was kinda tongue-in-cheek though had you been following this (or played a Battlefield game before Bad Company) then you would know that we PC gamers are already nervous as hell that another potentially great game and one of the best FPS franchises ever will be ruined by the watered-down console masses and almighty dollar. And if the PC article is word for word same then you had even less good reason to post the Xbox one. No it's not a huge deal but my points are valid. This isn't XboxPowerUp.
I have been playing Battlefield since the 1942 wake island demo over 8 years ago. the PC doesn't need to be defended. I posted it because it was the link it sent me to. god forbid the same article is posted in the XBOX 360 section we don't want to disrupt the space time continuum.
True. It'll be primarily based on A Dx11 Engine (FrostBite 2.0). Check it out here.
Does that mean we have to have a card that supports DX11? Cause I know that few have cards that can run it!
I doubt it. I have Win 7 x64, and therefore run DX11, but my video card is an 8800GT that pre-dates the existance of DX11. DX11 must have fall-back rendering schemes for older cards?
it probably will since DX9 isnt just an windows XP thing lol DX11 has support for a DX9 render path built in so by extention this new BF3 will still support ancient DX9 otherwise how could it run on console just cause there dropping XP support dosent mean its magically gonna be super tastic fabulous awesomely badass
barely got into BAD company 2 now a new one!
Cool, i missed out first 2 but this one i will get for sure.Because cople last moths somehow i started to like multiplayer shooters.
I sure hope they don't bring that bullshit back. And don't pardon my language, because that crap is stupid.
I wouldn't be surprised if prone is completely omitted from BF3.
I say keep the dolphin dive but make it that you have a 50/50 chance of breaking your neck and dying.
Most liekly will be the same setup as BC2, which is fine, theres tons of cover.
I like this idea, like playing russian roulette, 1st dive "oh shit I made it, hhmmm roll the dice again?"
