Operation Firestorm 2014: Battlefield 4 Map Preview (Xbox One)

Firestorm has more fire, some levolution, and a skid loader.

Can you please stop using "levolution" for some shitty scripted set-piece on a MP map? It's embarrassing.

Xbox One: No antialiasing. Poor texture quality. Still no ambient acclusion? Wasn't that at least supposed to get patched in?

I don't condone the playing of FPS on console, but I am impressed by the visuals and framerate that the XONE is pushing. That said, KBM master race hoooooo!

I play BF4 on PC, ultra settings @ 1920*1080 blah blah blah.

I will admit that while this does look great for console/Xbone, something looks off. I can't tell if it is the lighting or what it is, but something is coming off strange to me. Not bad, just different. 

I know someone will say it is probably because it is medium-medium high settings compared to max sets on PC, but that isn't it as I have tried pretty much every PC setting available for benchmarking purposes, and it still didn't look like this. It is also not the video player.

Gotta say though, even though you can easily see how the gamepad controls limit accuracy and movement, the game does play damn smooth fps wise.

Glad to see that the consoles are finally getting good looking BF games. They really were missing out on visuals, map size and player amounts.

Too many F'n Commericals here now!! Every single video I watch i have to sit through 30 seconds of the same commercials.. Can we just have a skip option after 4 seconds? Comon man!

Wow, this looks really bad! I only have a HD6870 1GB and the game looks so much better on my shitty card......

Considering the X1 has a better graphics card than my PC i have no idea how EA could mess this one up so bad. Must be some truth behind the rumor that the X1 dev software is far from finished atm.

Why does the anti aliasing look so shitty? Yeah I get it's 60 fps but still.

NO ONE LIKES OPERATION SHITSTORM. Why the fk is there a remake of it? Also, nice blurry jaggied graphics we got going on Xbone, totally how blurry everything should be in year 2013

@001011000101101 

you're pretty clueless huh?  Nothing scripted about them if you had a clue you might know that.

Seriously. They need an antialiasing chip. How hard is it to smooth out neighbouring pixels with some intermediate colours without making the image blurry? Cripes!

@JimmyFrost How are you impressed when the graphical fidelity has been turned completely off? You know what's impressive? Running everything on ultra for around $700.

@danjammer69 For me the it seemed like the jagged edges were very distracting, even more so than on PS4 which is what I've been playing on now. The edges almost seem more noticeable in 60fps with greater draw distances and effects than it did on the last generation. I suppose its because neither are in 1080p.

@danjammer69 different game.  not the same as bf3.  it may look off to you because its revised for BF4.  so you cant compare the OFS of bf3 to this one.  IT has nothing to do with what console its on or computer, because if you compare the pc version to the OFS u remember, it will also look as you say...off.  

Check out Levelcap, he has some great hd vids of this on the xbox one.  actually its metro and caspian.  just dont judge until you play it..

@DIGN I hope there will be a choice for 1080p 60fps at some point

@DIGN This is why I go to Gamespot first before anybody else because I love seeing Battlefield @60 fps

Speak for yourself fool. Ain't nothing wrong with that map. Bf3 maps are better than the new ones anyway.

@thiagoamaro Hahah the excuses you peasants throw around because your games look like shit are amusing. "it's b3cause da clouuuuddd!!!"

LOL, ofc i know that, everyone with half a brain does. Just look at the awful textures and no AA everywhere. The IQ is so messy in general its not even funny and for the most part it is not because of the video compression - the game just looks bad.

@CptJohnnyRico Yep.

PS4 resolution 900p (1600x900) upscaled to 1080p

Xbox One resolution 720p upscaled to 1080p

Both look great but the higher resolution on the PS4 helps.

I do have to agree with that. It looks faded.

@astaroth1234 @xbox_owns_slavestation4 @silversix_ You guys both sound like sad sheep sticking up for a faceless company like MS or Sony who cares about nothing except getting your cash. Good luck with the "console war" though.
