Preliminary Battlefield 4 tech report

, | Games

So far, I can report that the doo-dad physics in Battlefield 4 are top notch. As you’ll see in the above screenshot, the van that opens the second of seven single-player missions that constitute the campaign — basically, an extended tech demo for the Frostbite engine’s latest ooh-la-la incarnation — has a tiny T-Rex dangling from the rearview mirror. In the PC version, on an Nvidia GTX 770 using the just-released 331.65 drivers in Windows 7, the little T-Rex bounces and twirls exactly as you’d expect while the cutscene drives you through Shanghai. We haven’t yet run our T-Rex dangling diagnostics on the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3, but we’ll keep you updated.
