DICE's upcoming shooter Battlefield 4 will run at 60 frames per second on the Xbox One, the developer said today during Microsoft's 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo briefing.

No Caption Provided

In addition, a new trailer for the game was shown, displaying a seaside level where the player had to fight on a wrecked ship.

DICE also announced an expansion for Battlefield 4 today called Second Assault. The downloadable content will arrive first on the Xbox One, though no pricing information was divulged.

All gamers who preorder Battlefield 4 will receive the previously announced China Rising expansion.

@rabih55555 You do know that the link you have is 4 months old? Older than anyone even knew anything BF4? Get back to the drawing board.

No surprise. The trailer was done on their monster PC with AMD's top of the line graphic card. That hardware alone would cost more than both consoles combined

There should be no reason for any next gen games to run at 720p as their max res.

@ahmed74 There's no reason it shouldn't. Thankfully, that's due to the same microarchitecture shared by the consoles and computers. If anything they may add a bit more for the PS4/PC, but I doubt that's likely.

now we can bash on cod knowing that bf4 runs 60 fps on consoles is enough proof to show that activision is being lazy if bf4 can do this good on next gen than cod can definitely improve their graphics

@Aria1368 Did they actually confirm 64 players on consoles? That demo was definitely on PC. But maybe they confirmed it after, i'm not sure.

What's sad is that a game running at 60FPS on a brand new "next gen" console is considered news.

Geez, as usual, Microsoft wasting money on timed DLC, as if they think that gives them some sort of major advantage.

@GamersKing84 @blackace I'm actually curious of 64 player counts will come to the consoles. Since a lot of MP games are locally hosted, that is a lot of stress on a local network, and the system too.

@vacguardian @GamersKing84 @blackace It is 64 players on the next-gen consoles. Go to the Battlefield website and check the platform pre-order options and it will tell you in the features section.

So they announce fps count, but not player count? Lame! They didnt even mentioned a word if 64 players will be on next gen or not!

Whats the point of playing this game on a console?

switch to the Master Race known as the PC and play on a 64 player server.

I think the bigger question everyone wants to know is how many players the console version will support? Its nice the game will run at 60 fps on the console, but it doesn't mean much if the game still only supports 24 players vs the 64 player PC.

REASONS WHY WE SHOULD ALL BUY THE XBOX ONE
DRM policies to take away all rights to all gamers. CHECK!

"FREE" Kinect to keep an eye on what you're doing. CHECK!

Required 24 Hour check in or your game won't play. CHECK!

Disable any and all sharing, trading, and selling of your games without MS permission. CHECK!

Charge $500.00 (Not including the required $60.00 for live) for a system and it's game that will be useless once their servers are shut down and the next best thing comes out. CHECK!

XBOX ONE IS THE BEST SYSTEM EVER MADE PERIOD!!!

@Nexrad @COPMAN221ISBACK keep bending over and taking it in the ass by your master MICROSCAM. It's dumb asses like you that they want buying their POS system. I won't be crying because I'm not stupid enough to buy one. However I will be laughing at dumb asses like yourself who buy it. Enjoy while those check in servers are still running. Then good look trying to sell your paper weight and coasters. What should you care anyway since it will be your parents money and not yours.

@leandrro its called optimization. You tweak the settings until you get the perfect sweet spot for that specific hardware. Consoles let you do that. Also DICE know black magic when it comes to optimization. BF3 looked amazing even on crappy PC hardware.

If it runs at 60fps then it should run at 80 or more on the PS4.

@JasPlun keep dreaming.... sony dont know how to run their game systems right. look at how much power the ps3 had over 360 and ps3 games were buggy slugish and the same games on 360 looked and played better. i really doubt this game will run even 60fps on the ps4

@monson21502 @JasPlun the games playing worse on the ps3 wasn't sonys fault and the only games that played worse were the multi plat ones the exclusives play way better than any xbox exclusive look at uncharted that is a great example of what the ps3 can do and 360 can't and now that's its easier to make games for the ps4 i'm pretty sure sony has the advantage

@monson21502 @JasPlun

Was do to the architecture of the ps3.

The ps4 is built more like a pc. Also is more powerful than the xboxone.

So that shouldn't be an issue this time. I wouldn't be surprised to see them looking, and running better on the ps4.

this is so funny that 60 FPS on consoles is now considered a "feature" lmao CoD4 runs at 90-120 FPS unlocked on a mid range PC and that game is back from 2007

@AlabamaFan92 For idTech3 it does. As someone who played CoD so much back in the day, we all did what we could to get the advantage. Can you visually see a difference between 125 and 250 frames per second? No, one doesn't look more pretty than the other. You will however be able to jump farther, and have smoother reactions, as well as more leeway to prevent dips resulting in an overall smoother gameplay experience. idTech3 is also designed to run at 85 frames or above, which I imagine still exists for CoD Ghosts (Haven't bought it since BO so don't know if they modified that...doubting it).

@CincoToes @AlabamaFan92 not sure if serious :| well the point is you can play the same game like CoD4 for example on a much better machiene with better performance also another good example is BF3 which was dumbed down a lot for consoles because of hardware limitations, fewer players, smaller locked off maps etc. I played DmC for example on the Xbox 360 and on the PC and I swear to god its way faster on the PC and it runs above 90 FPS you will see the difference when you compare the Xbox version with the PC version, the PC version looks sharper and runs faster.
