Possible Battlefield 4 details leaked Discussion in 'News & Updates' started by Pancake, Yesterday at 5:38 PM. A very interesting read showed up on WCCFtech today, regarding many rumored details of DICE's upcoming Battlefield 4. The information was leaked on the Chiphell Forums, a Chinese technology site. According to the person who leaked this information these details would be scheduled to be revealed in the April issue of Edge magazine, while Battlefield 4 itself would be officially unveiled on the 26th/27th of March at the GDC 2013. According to the leaker the Frostbite 2.5 engine would be a full improvement of its predecessor, the Frostbite 2 engine. Frostbite 2.5 is rumored to only feature compatibility for DirectX 11 on the PC, and that the PC is the lead platform. Frostbite 2.5 is said to crank up the visuals and will feature tessellation technology and a dynamic weather system with dynamic weather effects that range from rain and sandstorms to haze and fog, which all depend on different factors and flexibly adjust to the variable conditions. It is said that Battlefield 4 will utilize the new tessellation technology implemented in the engine which would affect all of the environment including the water, terrain, NPC's and characters in the game. The widely appreciated and upgraded Destruction 4.0 will make a re entrance to the Battlefield, which will enable destruction on the scale that we saw in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The PC version of Battlefield 4 is expected to benefit more from their raw power and would offer the ability to render dynamic destruction effects much more realistically. On the PS4 and the Xbox 720 the game is expected to run at a steady 60 FPS on a 720P resolution. This might come as a disappointment to some, since it was rumored before that it would support 60 FPS at a 1080p resolution on both next-gen consoles. Although both the next-gen consoles and the PC will support 64 players on a server whereas the consoles are still stuck at a 24 player count. The game will be set around the year 2020 and will keep loyal to the modern day setting. This time China and the USA will be the main opposing forces, with the maps based in the continent of Asia. Battlefield 4 is expected to bring back Bad Company effects at the end of the maps. For example, there is a map based in Shanghai and near the end of the round the Oriental Pearl Tower will collapse, just as the radio tower does in Caspian Border at the end of a match. The single player experience will be roughly 5 to 6 hours long, and will feature two campaigns from the PLA perspective. There is not much more information about the singleplayer section of the game, but there are a lot of multiplayer details leaked. A few names of maps were dropped too, which are: Tiananmen Diaoyu Island Shanghai Bund Xizhimen These are only a few of the base maps that will be featured in Battlefield 4. Battlefield 4 will feature aircrafts such as the renowned Chinese Xian Y-20, the Chengdu J-20 and the Xianglong(UAV). Two of the supposedly confirmed MBT's include the Type 99 for the PLA and the M1A2 TUSK for the U.S. Forces, both having their own customization options. It is rumored that the Air Combat Zone is drastically increased, giving more space to dog fights and aerial chases. The skill system has also received an overhaul. The Commander position is rumored to return to the battlefield, with the abilities to provide fire, recharges and UAV detection to aid his team with. According to the leak micro-transactions are available for the game, but it is claimed that these micro-transactions will not disturb the balance of the game and are just optional. After a while the game will get a DLC with the following classic Battlefield 2 maps: Dalian Plant Daqing Oilfields Great Wall of China Wake Island Keep in mind that this information is from a leaked source and is yet to be confirmed.
