Battlefield 4 (also known as BF4) is a first-person shooter video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE, and published by Electronic Arts. The game is a sequel to 2011's Battlefield 3. Battlefield 4 features several changes compared to its predecessor. The game's heads-up display is much the same; composed of two compact rectangles. The lower left-hand corner features a mini-map and compass for navigation, and a simplified objective notice above it. The lower right includes a compact ammo counter, and health meter. The mini-map, as well as the main game screen, shows symbols marking three kinds of entities: blue for allies, green for squadmates, and red/orange for enemies.

Compared to the ASUS offering, we can see that the Battlefield 4 numbers for the PowerColor R9 270X PCS+ 2GB have dropped off a decent chunk, with 1680 x 1050 being the only playable resolution. We're not sure if it's the new driver, or just the latest patch from EA. You can never tell with the Battlefield Series, but we'd be leaning more towards this being a problem on the game's side, rather than the driver.
