Well technically you wouldn't call it a Jet Ski because that's the trademarked brand name of a particular model of Kawasaki watercraft.  So unless that's exactly what they are riding on then it would be the generic personal watercraft.  The in game watercraft look more like Sea-Doos or WaveRunners anyway.

I never post comments, but I would like to play with you guys. If you're on PSN, my name is SKULL_DUGGERY. I'm waiting until PS4 launches though. 

Also, please tell me they fixed the helicopter controls in the review tonight.

Thats how you change gameplay not like COD with new game Modes. Battlefield 3 had no things like this.

I think the world you guys were looking for was "levolve" not "levelolute".

It's funny how all the gaming website and magazines are playing together in one match. DICE must have given them a reviewer server. Machinima, PC gamer, Official Xbox magazine, GameInformer, Rooster Teeth, Polygon, Gamelab, etc.

I've not been following BF4 closely (I like to leave myself some surprises), but I would like to know a little bit about destruction. For example, When they released some of the early footage I saw a skyscraper collapse. Was that a triggered event, or was it dynamic and physics based? Also I saw those pillars with the road above it (in this video). Could those be destroyed to collapse it, thereby disabling that route?

I like the idea of a dynamic map where things can be levelled to create a tactical advantage. However if the events are triggered and always happen the same way, as impressive as it appears they have overstated how big an impact it will have on gameplay. People will be expecting it to happen and it will be a case of the map being in state A and state B, rather than being truly dynamic.

Regardless of which it is the game looks great. Just wondering if my PC will be up to the task. Planning on building/buying a new one next year so if my current one can't I may buy it on console instead/as well.

this map will become landmines OP. As in infantry once that wall breaks, this map will become very annoying. So much swimming!

cant wait to play the f*!k out of this game! only question i have,  being that i pre ordered the PS3 version. I wonder how much of the Nex gen did they try to fit into the current gen versions. I'm noticing the pure beauty of the next gen, is making me second guess my current gen purchase and making me just want to wait to get a PS4.

Those water physics were actually rather impressive.

So they are making vehicles a necessity and hindering infantry when they said they weren't going to do that. Great. *Sarcasm*

The beta was awful too. 

BF has really fallen since BF3. These maps look tight as hell too.  Yeah definitely not a day one purchase wait for the Walmart Bargin Bin.

You almost did the best Chris, nicely done! I notice that Rooster Teeth didn't do so well, I hope they put up a video too!

Nice video, helped show some of the gameplay aspects nicely (great for someone like me who didn't play the beta).

As for gaming, I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I'm up for gaming (and knifing) you guys, Berkut4796 on origin and battlelog.

Hey guys, My current setup looks a bit like this ATM: Intel i7 2600K, 8 Gb DDR3 Ram & GTX 570. Now, I'mplanning of buying a new GFX card for running this baby at 1920 x 1200 in ultra settings. I was looking at a GTX 770 or maybe a GTX 770 lightning (which is 40 euros more expensive). Will this suffice or should I wait for a more 'next gen card' ? Plz, feel free to comment <3

I played BF4 on the Xbox One today and had a good time even though I couldn't quite get the hang immediately of some of the changes like how to organize what your load out is. Have it pre-ordered on the PS4

@Psycold The best part about made-up words is that you can make up whatever conjugations you want! Levolve is good, though.

@themc_7 No there was a review event at DICE HQ in Stockholm where they all went and played together over direct connection. No servers.

@StokeMeAClipper In the Beta the skyscraper was triggered by blowing out four of the supporting pillars - always the same four pillars. Anyone with a rocket launcher or tank could do this, so if you wanted to you could level the skyscraper right at the start of the game. The dam looks like it works the same way.

While that sounds like it would get boring after a while, trust me, when that skyscraper started falling the best thing was to see everyone on both teams stop what they were doing and watch it fall - really was great fun and didn't get old.

@mjs55 The game is looking pretty ugly on current gen im afraid, + the maps are smaller with less flags (conquest) to fit the 24 player count. If I were you id just get it on PS3 as your pre-order is already in place then upgrade to the PS4 version. Then you can bask in the glorious 64 player HD chaos!

@mjs55 I just chose to wait. Less than 1 month and I can play the next gen version. I'll survive

@mjs55 Next-gen or PC will have 64 player servers. I highly recommend you play BF the way it was intended and either go PC or at least next-gen, it is like playing a whole different game when you up the scale to what DICE designed the game for....

@mjs55 Don't know exactly how it works but I know there is a upgrade system where you can upgrade several games like Ghosts AC Black Flag Battlefield and several others from current gen to next gen for a small amount of money.

@lorider25 Battlefield 3 was bloody awful, the Beta was a great return to form, and the use of vehicles alongside infantry combat is the whole point of Battlefield...

@Bexorcist Do a comparison with the AMD 7970 ghz edition  before you buy...but the 770 is is pretty solid..if you want 3D vison  got with the 770...but if you can save a bit more get a gtx780

@Bexorcist  GTX 770 would do the trick i'd imagine. I remember when BF3 was coming out and everyone was flipping out about upgrading their system. I had a Radeon 5770 at the time and I was able to run the game on Ultra with around 30fps average. Just remember with this game, the more GPU memory the better. I have a GTX 560 2gb from EVGA and I ran the Beta just fine..

@Bexorcist I run the game at ultra settings using a GTX 670 FTW and I get 60 fps. A GTX 770 will be fine, as it's about 5-10% faster than a GTX 670 FTW. I actually have 2 x GTX 670 FTW's in SLI, and if I'm running them both I easily hit 100 fps.

Bexorcist

@Marsh87 @Bexorcist So, what about the upcoming R9 290x then? It seems to be outperforming the 780 in every way and sometimes even the titan:(

Bexorcist

@malificus1 @Bexorcist That, I don't believe. I wasnt able to run it smoothly on my 570 so it would be kinda unbelievable to be able to run the beta on ultra with your 560.

@HapiJoel @StokeMeAClipper I did read a statement saying they were upping the anti for BF5 in terms of destruction, so that will be interesting to see. Mind you BF4 isn't out yet so no sense in getting too far ahead of myself.

HapiJoel
HapiJoel

@StokeMeAClipper @HapiJoel Haha I do, though perhaps I didn't really answer your question!

From what I saw on the beta, they were triggered events. The skyscraper fell the same way every time, the only other bit of destruction was a section of car park roof you could collapse to trap tanks, but its the same section every time. Otherwise, its the usual amount of destruction (some sections of walls etc) that can be destroyed, you couldn't completely level any other buildings.

I agree it would be great if you could - there was a building with a lift to the roof that snipers always camped on, and it would have been great to just destroy the whole building.

@Marsh87 @Bexorcist But I want to play in Ultra :'( :'( :'( The 780 dropped 100 dollars yesterday which makes it rather interesting. I ain't using 3D vision so that ain't the problem. The R9 290x will be priced around 600 euros while the 780 is 499 now. Would that be a future proof card?

Marsh87

@Bexorcist @Marsh87 it all comes back to if you going to use a 3D vision set up;if so the nvidia is your choice..if you want value for money go for AMD..your gtx 570 should  be good until march next year, which we might see those "never settle" amd bundles arriving..
