Battlefield 4 “Fishing in Baku” Gameplay Reveal. All 17 Minutes.

Ladies and gentlemen, Battlefield 4 has been officially revealed. Our Game Front team on the scene will have a full accounting of tonight’s unveiling event tomorrow, but for now DICE has released a staggeringly long 17 minute gameplay video, “Fishing in Baku”. We won’t overthink this, instead, just sit tight and watch.

By the way, the word from the scene is that it looks beautiful, but we’re not seeing anything new. As one observer put it, “Frostbite 3 is cool, but… so?” Obviously, let us know what you think in comments, and stay tuned for our full-length coverage of the Battlefield 4 event tomorrow.

Why on consoles, why? It was painful to watch this.

Because there’s lots of people out there who can’t afford to spend the amount of cash necessary to build a decent PC. Was that too much of a real world answer for you PC elitist?

I meant the video, smart guy. Why not release a proper gameplay footage instead of showing some retard miss every shot by six metres?

This video was played from a PC. Not a console. The textures are very high resolution, there’s Horizon Based Ambient Occlusion present, anti-aliasing, and the native resolution is clearly not an upscaled sub-720p that most AAA 360 games (and some PS3 games) display at. So where the “Why on consoles?” comment is coming from, I don’t know.

@Mike – Shut up. PC’s are not that expensive. The only people who make comments like that are those who don’t have a decent gaming PC.

My mistake. I meant that played with a controller. For me, it takes away all the reality when I see the weapon move in straight lines, like if I was controlling a robot or something.
It was pre-recorded, so I don’t see why they couldn’t let a guy with at least a little bit of skill play it.

@SweetPea – Ohh, Ok, now I understand. Yeah you can play the game with a controller on PC, but the thought has never crossed my mind to be honest.. To nice of a mouse & keyboard to bother I guess. (:

These game play demo’s/reveals are rarely ever played by someone who has a lot of technical proficiency with the game. They slow down the look sensitivity, take it slow, and try to showcase the environment and whatever else they’re advertising at the moment. What I took from this was: Better graphics, more emotional acting/storytelling, but with a CoD style over-the-top action set pieces… Only much more open. I couldn’t care less about squad commands personally, A.I. is (generally speaking) pretty awful in these games. Sole exception in my personal experience is Halo.
