Battlefield 4 Beta Gameplay and Performance Preview

Final Thoughts


DICE has done quite the job with Battlefield 4, and even though this is just a Beta, it should continue to get better from here on out. I'd like to see some improvements from NVIDIA and its drivers, which I'm sure it's working on as we speak.


The game itself looks good, but I think we're seeing DICE hold back until the final release - which I'm happy with. It's not like DICE want to show BF4 off in all its glory now, a few weeks from release. DICE really should've called this the Battlefield 4 Beta Tease, which would've made more sense.


The destruction needs to be amplified, definitely, which is something I was truly disappointed to see. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 had far superior destruction, and while an entire building comes crashing down, the procedural destruction around the map, like shooting a wall and nothing happening, but some little chips coming out of it, is poor for the Frostbite 3 engine.


We will have some more results between now and the full launch, where we hope to test out some Radeon HD 7970s as well as the new R7 and R9 series GPUs from AMD.
