Re: Frostbite 2.0 - Official BattleField 3 Thread

Interesting video of quite a few people playing Caspian Border/PC in the beta. I dunno why DICE refuses to open this up to the public, because THIS is what the beta map should have been:

It'd probably be a little different if DICE fixed their effed up squad system/menus. They aren't working, as well as, the same thing that NEVER has worked properly since BFBC: voice chat. If DICE pulled their collective heads outta their asses and opened Caspian Border for all platforms in this beta (despite all the bugs/glitches), the media, fans, and newcomers would be singing DICE's praises.

Here's to waiting to find out what'll happen...as it's now 2:33AM PST, 29SEPT, my time. with now 10 days left of this 'beta'.

The latest #BF3Beta update:

Thank you for playing the Open Beta and making the final game better!

We are very excited to see so many gamers join our Battlefield 3 Open Beta. Here's an update on the Open Beta from DICE General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson.

I want to give you an overview of how the Open Beta is helping us shape a fantastic final game, what we are implementing based on your feedback, and how the Open Beta will help us deliver a robust gaming environment from day one.

The Open Beta is a true Beta

The Battlefield 3 Open Beta is based on software that is more than one month old. We need to test the new back end dedicated server structure we've built. Not only have we built a new game engine, but an entirely new back end system so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of dedicated servers on all platforms.

Just like normal procedure when releasing a game, the Open Beta has had long lead times due to testing, certification, and setting up. This means that the code you are now playing is actually quite early and not representative of the final game.

We had to do this in order to have as many people testing as possible, in order to ensure a top quality experience when the game is released. However, we're confident in the Battlefield formula and confident that our fans will support us in order to make Battlefield 3 better.

Dedicated servers require dedicated testing

The biggest reason for running the Open Beta is to stress test our servers and back end. Already, we are seeing 6 times the number of simultaneous players in the Battlefield 3 Open Beta compared to the Beta for Battlefield: Bad Company 2! The fact that Battlefield 3 is clearly our biggest game launch ever by a magnitude of 6 makes it doubly important to test everything.

We are constantly updating the News section on Battlelog with information on what we are fixing from Open Beta to final. We appreciate your time and your feedback. The data and feedback from the Open Beta will not only directly affect the final game of Battlefield 3, but its future development and support.

We're heading out on the road this week to let journalists experience all aspects of Battlefield 3. Stay tuned for their previews, and stay tuned for the final game on October 25th. The final game will look, play and sound better than the Open Beta. You have helped making sure of that.

Karl Magnus Troedsson

General Manager, DICE

I do believe the video with Patrick Bach shows the PS3 using the high-res optional install. I'm assuming so:

So far, I'm NOT impressed w/Frostbite 2.0... There was NO destruction in the beta & these new videos aren't that great. The textures still looks bland & there is NO destruction in them, lol... There is NO anti-aliasing in those videos & it looks like pre-alpha graphics.

At some point, DICE has to stop talking & show the actual amazing graphics.... right?

They toned down all(?; I know they did Destruction) the prettiness in the Beta; it was mostly for server stressing and debugging.

If that's all you care about, then you really need to wait til the game hits retail, and then keeping hitting the refresh button on YouTube for anyone uploading 'maximum settings' PC footage. No one should be making final judgements on beta video gameplay, or pre-release content, ect.

The console videos I've seen so far (taking into account any compression to any video uploaders) are excellent looking. Nothing like a maxed-out PC rig, but still---one of the best looking shooters to date for consoles, if not the best expecially for MP, with everything that's going on (FrostBite2, destruction, audio, ect) DICE didn't include the high-resolution optional install for nothing.
