For those thinking this is just BF3 with new maps.. Well it might be, but for your answer to waiting for the next big BF change.. Star Wars Battlefront, should take it to the next gen level :)

I'm just upset that it runs so weird on my system. BF3 was a near constant 60fps at maxed out settings.

I can be at all medium on this one and still get these weird moments where I drop to 40fps and it's usually after the center building collapses.

I understand the graphics are improved over BF3 but to such a degree that even at medium settings I get awkward, hard drops for no apparent reason? I'm tempted to get this for the PS4. x_X

I have days where I can have a near constant 60fps experience and then the next, with zero changes, that 40-60 I was talking about.

It IS Battlefield 3 with different UI, different character models, some different weapons, and different maps. Just like COD games. It's what you come to expect from a bi-annualized franchise.

Anyone that thinks this is BF3.1 or BF3.5 is really retarded.

This is a lie. First improve properly bf3 and then try some bf3.1 after that.

I'm sorry but from that video this is Battlefield 3 with different maps.

I'm definitely getting the next-gen version. Graphics aren't everything, but there are other good reasons to wait.

@BulletSpeak It's beta many people are experiencing problems with different setups on pc.  I have 2 gaming pc's of similar specs...one runs very well the other is eretic up/down spikes. Just wait to see what happens imo.

@tyzone_matrix Well I would start by making some changes first. Then I would see what works. That is how progress is generally made.

@Dannystaples14 @nyran125tk  I agree with you. The game is still pretty similar to BF3. I haven't played the beta to know but what we're getting from the video like the same classes, and the same modes are still enough to show that not much changes are made for this game to feel like it's BF4. But then again I also seen changes from BF3 like the maps, and battlelog, and that new support system thing for it to look like it is BF4 too. Really it just feel like the gameplay doesn't present much overall. So yeah I get what you mean.

@nyran125tk If EA has anything to do with it, they will force as much money out of their customers as physically possible, even if it means they kill Battlefield essentially in the process and then they will scrap it and move onto their next money sucking game.

I mean even the front cover of 4 looks pretty much the same as 3 but with a different guy and a 4.

@Dannystaples14 I have more fun in COD than bF. Im hoping DICE doesnt just do a Battlefield game for Battlefront. It better feel like Battlefront, not battlefield 3

@jlevin860 @tyzone_matrix Naa screw betas. 

One of the things that annoyed me in Battlefield was the fact that it was all so slow. Like mantling over a wall just seemed to take an age. Long enough that if you timed it wrong and someone spotted you, you were a defenceless sitting duck. If not changing the mechanics of mantling at least put a lightweight class into the game. One that can run around really fast and leap over walls like they weren't there. And give them lighter weapons and less health.

The weapon select system was terrible as well. That wasn't in the video naturally but that would get changed. Also not being able to change your loadouts in the 30-40 seconds after a match was simply stupid. That is the prime time to switch to your new unlocks from the previous round so you don't have to waste time in game or leave the match. Which is double for the PC version since you have to leave and go to the stupid web browser matchmaker.

I personally would also remove vehicles but that is my own preference.

Other than that I would have to go to the game and look at every mechanic of it from developer level stuff to in your face features of the game that everyone sees and look at them individually. I mean I'm not a developer this is what they should be doing yet they don't seem to be doing it all that much. Won't be long before they are bad as COD, bringing out yearly releases, so they can compete with them better.

COD is hated by many and still rakes in more sales every year.
