Battlefield is one of those gaming franchises that has seemed to get it right with every single new release, and Battlefield 4 is no exception. Sure, the game has had its fair share of EA launch bugs, but the game is actually one of the best FPS titles ever made. The core game is loads of fun, and I am really digging the attack boats on maps like Paracel Storm and Hainan Resort. The China Rising DLC is fun, but I have yet to really get into any of the maps, and I often find myself defaulting back to the core set.


That brings us to Second Assault, the latest Battlefield 4 DLC for PC. Xbox One players have had access to Second Assault since December, but the low-resolution textures really do not do the game justice. A PC is really needed to show off the beauty that is Second Assault 2014. When I first logged into Battlelog yesterday and loaded up my first round of Metro 2014 I was, for lack of better words, blown away. Frostbite 3 and the new high-resolution textures really give Metro a whole new look and feel while retaining that familiar feel.


With each of the re-released maps containing new elements, Levolution features, and better textures while remaining quite similar to their predecessors, I decided to write up this article and post some side by side comparisons to show our readers just how much better the 2014 edition levels look, as well as showing off how much each has changed in the years since that have passed between Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4. In the upcoming pages, you will see several screenshots from each game side by side. I tried to position them as close to each other as possible, which was no simple task, by the way.


All images captured for this comparison were taken on my main gaming rig. The PC, while a bit dated, managed to run BF3 and BF4 almost flawlessly at Ultra settings. Specs have been listed below.


PC Specs:


  • AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE clocked to 4.1GHz
  • 16GB Avixxer RAM
  • Sapphire Radeon R9 270X


Battlefield 4 Specs:


  • Graphics set to Ultra
  • AMD Mantle
  • 1080p Resolution
  • Average Frame Rate 68


Battlefield 3 Specs:


  • Graphics set to Ultra
  • DirectX 11
  • 1080p Resolution
  • Average Frame Rate 103
