[PC/Cons] BattleField 4

Postby Flare on Sat Oct 05, 2013 8:09 am

Battlefield 4 - Currently in Open Beta accessible via Origin . NOTE : 64 bit OS required for this beta

Beta uses BF 3 style Battlelog, seems efficient this time. I started the Origin client, downloaded the game and started the game in Origin and it started up Battlelog with my user details and Soldier set up ready, just needed to find a server.
I tried some 64 man server in Frankfurt , game failed to load... presumed the server crashed.
Tried a 64 man conquest on a London server , ping was claimed to be 11 , had a decent match with the default settings , fired bullets and targets took hits in a decent fashion otherwise a typical BF match (as usual snipers all over the show).
Game ran decently from what I could visually tell, didnt have a FPS meter up...hell I dont even know what the settings were as I didnt really fiddle, just gave the game a run quickly.... at the very least with a a full 64 man server it seemed stable enough and I didnt see any lag during the one full map I played.

Worth a download to see the Open Beta if you have a 64 bit OS in my opinion, not sure about actually picking up the game... initial impressions was positive though I guess.

(My system : 3.2 ghz AMD Phenon II x 6 1090T , 8 gigs DDR3 1333mhz RAM , 580 GTX vid card , Win 8 pro 64 bit OS )
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully

I've the same Processor as you've, 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz and a GTX570 and the game is running like crap. Getting crappy frame rates using the latest Beta drivers :scratch: .
I'm running Windows 7 x64 though, the DirectX 11.2 that's exclusive to Windows 8 is guaranteed to give a CPU performance boost.

I'm not upgrading to 8, bah. I hope the release of BF4 will have performance balanced for those that don't have or want to use Windows 8.

3770, GTX 660, 16GB Ram - Working perfectly fine here, but then I am running 8.

Game seems good so far, seems like a more BF2-ey BF3. Certainly nothing revolutionary, but then why change something which isn't broken?
There are 10 types of people in the world: those that know binary, those that don't, and those that didn't expect this joke to be in base 3.

16GB RAM @ 2133 Mhz, GTX 770 2GB and 4.0 Ghz AMD FX-8350 with nVidia's 331.40 beta driver and it runs fine! Enjoying it so far, although things are imbalanced due to it being a beta despite what in-game nutters seem to think. EDIT: Oh, and Win7 64bit.

Game is definitely more BF2-like which is a good thing imo. It runs pretty fine most of the time, need to check the fps though as it feels a little sluggish occasionally. 5850, 6GB RAM, i7 920 2.67ghz and Win7 64bit.

So, to come back on this. I installed the Windows 8.1 x64 preview next to my existing Windows 7 x64 and the difference is night and day. On Windows 8.1 Battlefield 4 runs at a frame rate of 60 and during fights and explosions and whatnot around 40 without stutter or sluggish controls.

Last update or 2 really sorted out the performance issues I was having on 64 player servers. Really is quite fun now.

It's a real shame that you can blow the wall off on many buildings but the roof/ceilings remain invincible. It would really but great to have the ability to C4 the floor from under some silly roof snipers feet. Also, the Support needs the C4 back.

I'm enjoying this! Some of the maps (Flooded Village, Parcal Storm) are fantastic! The MTB LAW rocket launcher is beyond annoying though.

I think I've unlocked the same scope about 10 times now due to crashes rolling back my stats. The game does need some fixing up, that's for sure, but it is fun when I'm not trying to find a server on the battlelog.
