Playing beta on the PC....works fine for me....defiantly getting it. Few glitches here and there but its still in beta so that's expected. Its defiantly a more polished beta then BF3 was, that's for sure. Im impressed...

PS
Check it out this glitch I recorded...lol

Im at 40 to 45FPS on ultra...but remember...this is still beta so the graphics really arent polished yet....which could me fewer fps when the actual game comes out. BUT when the correct video drivers for the game become available it should also boost a few frames back up.

Re: Battlefield 4

Played a few rounds of the beta last night. It was a tad bit stuttery, overall I still enjoyed it. Didn't seem like too much more of a strain on the hardware than BF3. Can't wait for the polished final game.

Yea I ended up sticking to medium since it wasn't very smooth yet anyways. But once I realized it was the game and not my machine I probably should have just put it back on high. Running on one 660ti. I may buy another one though since they are cheap... SLI ftw

Battlefield 4

Seems to me like its much more of a strain :/ I run bf3 on low with zero issues. Can't do the same for bf4 unfortunately. Just not playable. Was getting like 30fps on low, but when I get in a tank or a lot of people are around it drops to 14. Fml

It's probably more the beta than your PC at this point. If it's still an issue when the game is released, then you may need an upgrade

That's the thing....apparently there is a known bottlenecking issue with the beta where CPU is at 30% usage and GPU is maxed out. But if its not resolved before release I'm not going to spend money on the game if there's a possibility it won't run on my chomp. Ya no? I'm strapped for cash and rent/food/car is my priority :/

Meh. It's still pretty cheap. For some reason people think you need to get uber expensive rigs. I plan on eventually getting one for no more than 600 to max out bf4.

Also I hate when people are like "oh but pcs go out of date after a year or two, that's why I stick with my xbox 360 because its relevant for 9 years"

^ are you kidding me? My old ass pc still outperforms your xbox.... Also your xbox ages the same way a PC does. It's practically outdated the day you buy it. 360 specs are so damn old it's absurd, the consoles just have games dumbed down to work.

Battlefield 4

So bump!

Just downloaded the beta on PC yesterday it's fun...a bit of change though from playing on Xbox....hard to judge though seeing as it's only a beta and nothing is finalized.

Battlefield 4

Yeah I can actually run it on my comp with ~60fps on the lowest resolution. It's super fun. I dominate with the attack chopper. I've gotten used to the rpg lock and the fact that ammo runs out pretty quickly. Yesterday had a run where I (piloting the whole time) went 23-0 and my gunner went 41-0 lol. So much fun. But we were on comms so we could communicate efficiently

rpg lock is just to have something for the beta to kill vehicles, that B.S. is gone for the release build.

Battlefield 4

Been playing it for a few hours and I'm definitely liking it. Just bought Premium for it since I already did for BF3.

It's a lot cleaner, faster, and smoother than the beta they had before.

I'm tempted to get another GTX 680 now.

On PS3
I haven't played the MP yet, just SP at the moment and a little bit on the "test" section, it looks better than BF3 with the added atmospheric effects.

As of the latest build, BF4 on XBOne is running at 720p & on PS4 it's running at 900p

I wonder if I should just wait to play it on the ps4 since I have it on preorder right around the corner. Will the ps4 guys be able to play with the ps3 folks?
