If you haven’t seen the amazing 17 minute gameplay footage of Battlefield 4 yet, you don’t know what you are missing. The good news is that the same video just got even better. Previously, the video was only available in a heavily compressed format on YouTube but now we have a full 1080p video at 60 frames per second for you to drool over.
This new video now gives you the opportunity to view the 17 minute gameplay in its true form – uncompressed and in high-bitrate format, courtesy of the technical experts over at Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry. The difference in quality may not be too apparent for the casual gamer, but PC enthusiasts who pride themselves on the latest hardware should definitely appreciate this video.
The trailer is taken from the PC version of the game if you hadn’t already guessed and utilizes DICE’s new Frostebite 3 engine – technology that won’t be available on the Wii U unfortunately. We’ve heard a lot of criticism already on how Battlefield 4 just looks like an updated version of Battlefield 3, but we have to disagree.
We have only seen the single-player campaign don’t forget and the big talking point will come when DICE finally shows off multiplayer. The game is launching before the end of the year with a beta planned, and we can’t wait to see what is now possible on next-generation consoles like the PS4 and Microsoft’s next Xbox console.
If DICE manage to produce the same real-time gameplay and lighting effects as what we see here in this 60FPS single-player gameplay, then we are definitely in for an amazing treat nevertheless – especially since it’s now looking likely that Battlefield 4 will end up as a PS4 launch title.
You can stream the 60FPS gameplay here, or download it to play on your HDTV over at Eurogamer as well. Take another look at the gameplay and let us know if you notice the level of added quality or not. Are you impressed with Battlefield 4 so far, or do you need to see more?
