Holy **** BF4 looks good.

Ok new map which will be playable at Gamescon is called Paracel Storm and contains heavy naval warfare on a small Chinese island and JETS!

Release date is the 29th of October in the US and the 31st in the EU. They said next gen will follow shortly after that (I really hope November).

Wow. DICE is making the CoD paintball-in-the-backyard series look like even more of a joke than it already is. Amazing! smile.gif

There is so much amazingness going on in that video I can't even comprehend it all...gotta get back to work.
Levolution on a water map means windmills falling and boats colliding causing massive waves...wild.

That's looks more than 134 meters to me, but what do I know. He gets the kill while the guy is still coming into the shore, leading the target before firing.

But like a good soldier, got to confirm the kill.

biggrin.gif haha. yeah, guys on the xbox thread talking about 900m...geez, glad I'm in the smarter group with in the Playstation area. 134m is enormously different than 900m. 134m isn't even sniping in bf3, that's G3A3 distance.

I am just so slap-happy right now with that screen cap showing blackhawk down style range finding & setting, it will make sniping much more effective, even if people are not happy about snipers sitting in the back, at least they'll be getting hits/kills this time around, so that's something right?wink.gif
Plus, there is a 20x scope I saw on a weapon unlock screencap. There's just no way 20x would even be usable without getting far enough back and having a range finder.

I also jumped the gun about the levolution comment. I rewatched the video where at the end a huge carrier crashes into the ground, it's scripted SP. Not tasteful of them to mix footage like that.

I was wondering if it wasn't a storm that popped up mid battle but SP was my guess to.

You know now that I think about it. That ship crashing into the island could be a scripted action that happens on a Rush map. Creating a whole another level and disfiguring that map all in part due to "levolution".

Eh? Am I onto something?

It was explained in one of the vids that you could use all the weapons on the ship, both before and after the crash.

That's what I thought/hoped. They showed the island sunny then transitioned to rainy.

I may have to get the PS3 version just for that early jump, but at the same time I don't want to get burned out... Though, the PS4 version would probably reinvigorate the experience that much sooner.

Got an email from Gamestop about "Second Assault" which is 4 beloved BF3 maps for PS4 preorders...then the link takes me to a page where it only says China Rising. ???

Any news on this? I have preorders at both Amazon and GS.

Second Assault is 4 Metro maps, over and over and over again. mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

Truthfully, it's Metro, Oman, Firestorm, and Caspian. 2 out of 4 isn't bad, I guess.

Just remember your going from 24 to 64 players and all the extra flags that gains. Except for Metro, the others are going to be a lot different next time around.

I do hope they take the chance to fix Metro this time around.

No reason they couldn’t put in some extra platforms for alternative routes and turn the destructibility up to levolution (collapse routes, open surface routes, decimate the low rises at the end instead of just punching out walls). The only bad thing of the map IMO was the spawns were much too easy to camp and trap a team in. Make the playable map more hourglass shape with the traditional metro in the center and it would work better IMO.

You guys going digital?

I figure It’ll get so much playtime out of it, and won’t be looking to trade it in anytime soon, that it’s resale will be nil; so why not. There zero chance the SP will be some unforgettable, game changing experience I’ll want to always hold on to… plus the servers will eventually be pulled down.

Hopefully EA knows what Yoshida, Cerney, and GG has been doing with that instant join from the OS and streaming gameplay we saw yesterday. Booting directly into your friends squad from the OS in under 7 seconds needs to happen!

Ive been old school and always got the disc.

Is the instant join from OS a digital download game thing or just something you're hoping Dice will implement?

Since I got BF3 digitally free on PS+ its awesome being able to just fire it off anytime. Adding premium was just another download. I'd do digital but don't think its an option with Gamestop. I know BF4 won't be traded off so its no concern either way. Secondly with as much f2p as PS4 has I doubt the disc exits much in the first several months anyway.

As to instant join, it shouldn't be an issue if you have your disc in.

Good question, we don’t know yet but I think it’s system wide. Every PS4 game installed 100% to the HDD anyways, so the only difference would be needing to get up and switch discs first before jumping into the game instantly if it wasn’t in the drive. Still I like the idea of keeping my SP games in the drive and my heavily played MP ones digital to jump right into if I want.

You can see what I’m talking about during the OS presentation at the very start of the Sony conference yesterday. Yoshida goes to something called “Live on Playstation” in the new OS and it appears to pull up thumbnails of live streams of all the games his friends are currently playing. He clicks on a KZ:SF one and it shows live gameplay streaming from that friend with options to join, comment, or interact. He picks join and it drops him into the same MP match in 7-10 seconds! Guerrilla Games confirmed it was a live match and Yoshida took a screenshot that posted to his PS4 linked twitter account in real time.

Just not sure if it's supported by default now through the API and how the OS handles MP instances, or if it's a developer required implementation.
