Likely a detached camera.

Not even that. Looking at the animations of the soldiers in this little teaser, they look nowhere near something of actual gameplay, too much natural movement.

Enlarged by 150% using Nearest Neighbor filter.


They maybe use in-game assets for this, but it is gonna be the same as any other cinematic trailer.

Holy shitbucket! I'm glad you like my idea of a hype star!

Last one boarding it for now is Yoday (Post #494). I'm continuing to sell tickets for one more hour, as I'm having an exam tomorrow (dunno why I'm even doing this Hype Star right now LOL). It would be cool if someone could take the next shift then.


GIVE ME A SEAT, STAT!

May the fluff be with you.

nah i will wait for the retail version.
tomorrow they will release an amazing trailer than they will "watch dog"

They're not Ubisoft.
It's DICE. They don't really have an history of graphical downgrades.

And it's friggin CURRENT GEN ONLY. 3 Platforms to focus on.

I want to believe these guys, but I can't until I see direct-link, in-game, unedited, unscripted, non-CGI, non-super sampled, LIVE GAMEPLAY and the hardware specs of the PC running that game sequence.

Why is it so "off-limits" to show that to people?

Rockstar is the only company that actually delivered what they showed off a few months ago for the PC version of GTA5.

...and DICE has not had a good history with this stuff.

Still, I'm a hopeless Star Wars geek and this will still be DAY 1 for me because I have no willpower.

But it sure would be nice to put all fears to rest!

Please don't have Battlelog. Please in begging you DICE.

Battlelog is a glitchy mess that doesn't work the Majority of time in BF4 on PS4.

And a squad up system too is a must.

Please.

you know, with Disney overseeing all star wars stuff now. I honestly cannot see them allowing EA to release anything below their high standards. While it may not look as astronomically amazing as we are being lead. I have very high hopes for it. If the game releases broken/unplayable, EA will not be spending much time with the star wars property. All star wars released content under Disney has been very good so far, from books, comics, and tv shows

do people think thats gameplay? that would be like a whole gen ahead of everything else with all the subtleties in the animation, heads looking slightly towards explosions and like you mention incredibly natural walking and running, nah thats not gameplay.

Congrats dude, you're the last one boarding the star on my shift! Lord Vader ordered me to take a nap so I can concentrate on my exam tomorrow.

It'd be great if anyone could take over the counter. Just drop me a PM and an update with the current version as well as the post number of the last person that entered.


(last one in: SargerusBR #655 )



mind changing mine to a cleaner version?

Are you saying that you don't want battlelog or battlelog won't be in it? Because previous news has said otherwise.

You should analyze news stories a bit more carefully ;)

That article is based on the fact that the Uprise website mentions that Uprise is working on Star Wars Battlefront. While Uprise has been doing Battlelog, does that automatically mean that we will do Battlelog for Star Wars Battlefront?

No, it won't. That can only be an assumption, and I can tell you, no, there won't be Battlelog for Star Wars Battlefront.

yeah, its like Disney is too good at everything
Too good at everything? More like people put way too much trust in the cinema division and think Star Wars will end up like the Avengers, but seem to forget Disney had a lot of duds too... like the Lone Ranger.

If I had billions of dollars, I could throw endless sums of money at my problems too.

But I am not just looking at the rocks. On the whole it looks like there is no way that actual gameplay will look like that on consoles.

Maybe not being forced to use a version of an engine built with being limited to less than 512mb of RAM in mind can actually do something amazing? We will see!

And this is The Witcher 3, an open world game.



I honestly think people have been conditioned to last generation restrictions for so long they have no idea what modern engines can do with significantly faster graphics processors and more than 512mb of RAM.

Honestly, in my case, it's that I've been conditioned to know that publishers will hype graphics to hell and back and then downgrade. Regardless of engine.

I mean, could a current-day PC with enough horse power run a game that looks that like? Sure. Will a multiplayer-focused game look like that? I have my doubts.

Pretty sure all of Battlefield 3/4's trailers were shot in-engine. Maybe a minor amount of post-processing was added.

All of Battlefield 3 and 4's first trailer stuff were basically just in-game demos.

For example:

Battlefield 3 Faultline: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekDutunw1mk
Battlefield 3 Operation Metro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPu7-LtLKmU

Battlefield 4 Fishing in Baku: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8HVQXkeU8U
Battlefield 4 Siege of Shanghai: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nJY7n8KaOY

DICE doing something pre-rendered would actually be against what they normally do.

I'm not doubting they use in-engine material. I'm doubting that this will be gameplay in any sense.

Oh, sorry--my mistake. Yeah, it'll probably be as representative of the gameplay as BF's cinematic trailers were, i.e., not very.

No doubt there are some cinematic BF moments that actually DO happen to players, but any of the staged coordinated action almost never happens on pub servers, haha.

If they made it true to the gameplay, there will probably be one ATAT spamming fire at the Hoth shield generator that was left unprotected by all rebel players trying to flip their own snow speeders with thermal detonators.
