official Battlefield 4

I have a EVGA GTX 560 ti, and i think even i need to upgrade. I can pretty much max out Bf3 at full res though ,so maybe i'll be okay.

Maybe just looking for an excuse to upgrade. A good  680 is about $600+ , but i'll probably need to get a new psu to power that one as well.

 

I wan't all those effects they show in the video.

 

I just hope its nothing like Bad Company 2, where having a higher end pc put you in a disadvantage due to you seeing all the smoke and debris while lower end machines had all that turned off, allowing them to see more.

 

Couple more weeks to beta :p That'll at least give us a chance to see if our current set ups are up to task. Then we have a month to upgrade :D

 

 

Even a 760 sc would be a big step up from your card. And shouldn't require a new PSU.  

Still, even a 760 wont hold a consyant 60fps at 1080p ultra.  Im running 760's sli at 1440p and have to play on med/high to get at least 60 fps.

 

edit: im talking about bf3 of course

I don't know why they'd do one and not the other.  The Battlefield series has had very strong audio support in the past (I only own Bad Company 2 and BF3 along with the two newest Medal of Honors, but still.)

 

Maybe not right away, but I'd still expect it.

Because EA and DICE were talking only about Mantle and didn't say a word about TrueAudio support. That's why I don't have much hope.

And compared to Bad Company 2, the surround in BF3 is terrible. Explosions/shots in the distance sound way too close to you and it's just impossible to pinpoint the footsteps of the enemy, no matter if you use high quality surround speakers or headphones.

I haven't had that experience at all.  Using Realtek or what?

I am running a GTX 770 4 GB on a 500 watt power supply fine. Played Left 4 Dead 2 and Simcity 5 for a little bit. Plus Battlefield 3 all on Ultra quality for around 3 hours. No problems.

Battlefield 4 will use 8 cores which was said from the AMD event! So glad!

No, a dedicated card from Asus which provides me clear results in other games. And why are you saying that like Realtek is bad?

Are we back in 2008, where on-board sound cards were a bad choice because the lack of features like EAX?

You realize how many channels they have?  It's incredibly easy to use 128 voices, nevermind the 31 most Realtek cards have.

 

It's not about quality, it's about functionality.  They don't have it.

Probably the people I've been talking about, even going so far as to use their company name in the same post.

All maps and game modes have been "revealed."

Defuse is going to be a delight unfortunately it wasn't deemed fit to appear in the Beta! But unless something is horribly wrong it'll be a certain preorder for me. Defuse made the difference.

Reckon it'll likely do ultra but high is often actually better performing. Even on epic rigs ultra can introduce more frame lags so while average FPS is still good it'll actually appear more jittery that it ought to.

 

High is probably a good bet.

 

System I'm looking at purchasing comes with a quad core AMD processor and a 2GB GTX 760 and I'm fairly confident it'll comfortably do high settings with decent FPS.

 

The min specs are laughable though...BF3 wouldn't even run on those...I should know - i tried. Needs a quad core from my experience to be anywhere near acceptable.

 

Thanks that's what I was thinking.

Dang, I was all set to buy a new machine decked out and what not, but with the AMD graphics they just released i want to wait....i never liked ATI/AMD but this new Mantle API sounds interesting. dont wanna fork over 1300 for dual 780's and then have to turn around and sell em to get the new AMD's. I hate having too many choices >.<

Multiplayer trailer and some dates were released:

How to Join: - Join the Beta on:

Pre-order the Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition - October 1*

Battlefield 3 Premium member - October 1*

Registered owner of Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition - October 1*

Open to all Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC players. Download from Xbox Live, PSN and Origin.com. - October 4*

http://pixelenemy.com/battlefield-4-open-early-access-beta-dates-officially-clarified-by-dice-new-maps-shown-in-latest-trailer/

Pre-ordered the deluxe edition just for the "exclusive" beta access. If I knew there would be an open beta for all, I'd just get the regular version.

But never mind, it's almost here :D

I did NOT pre-order, so I'll be coming in 4 October with all the regulars.

 

The PC beta is x64-only - in other words, don't even think about it if your OS is x32.

 

Fortunately I have the right OS (Windows 8.1 RTM Pro x64), albeit driven by the "wrong" CPU (Intel Q6600) and GPU (nVidia GTX550 Ti - the first non-AMD GPU I bought for my own use in ever).

 

And with the betas for Titanfall AND NFS Rivals as the followups, I'm going to have a VERY interesting fall beta season.

Titanfall gets a beta? I thought nothing was certain yet, and that anything regarding a Titanfall Beta was a scam? Didn't they have a problem with scam mails and sites?

Notice that both games will release after BF4  (Titanfall may not release until 2014), and the first announcement of the beta for Rivals was at Gamescom.

 

I tend to wait for announcement from either developer OR publisher, and this is especially true for games with a large hype quotient - that way, I am not as vulnerable to scams.

 

Of the three games, NFS Rivals is the game I am most excited for - with BF4 and Titanfall roughly a draw..

The chances for a Titanfall Beta is there, but it's still a new IP, and they might not want to risk cancelled pre-orders and that kind of thing. But that's just a gut feelng.

I know I'd love to see a beta of it, just to test it without having to buy it, to me it just seems like COD with Mechs and thrusters, and just getting to test the gunplay would be wonderful for me.

Just confirming...I own BF3 premium so i do not need to buy BF4 in advance to try the beta right? Do quite like a try before I buy. Have the x64 bit covered and the game is in my Origin seemingly waiting.
