Battlefield: game test

As much as expected by many is the game Battlefield3, the past beta test turned out to be just as ambiguous. In the event of a beta version, I decided to try the game on all possible platforms: in addition to the default gaming platform, for me it is Playstation3, I took two laptops with different components. The platform from AMD was represented by the Acer Aspire 7560G, the Intel processor + video card from NVIDIA was the Dell Inspiron N7110.

Even on Playstation3, it was not possible to enter the beta test without a fight. The story goes like this: Medal of Honor Collector's Edition owners were promised early access to a trial version of the game. I waited and waited for a key to the mail or the appearance of a beta version in the PS Store, but this did not happen. The beta version appeared a little later and already, together with all the users, I began to fight.

Fight from installation start

A significant number of bugs have been discovered in the game itself. Failing textures, intermittent freezes while loading levels. Of the benefits: more than the usual control scheme, in fact, the mechanics of the game have not changed in any way.

The computer version "distinguished itself" even more. For the game it was necessary to download a branded client from EA - Origin. Through it, the game is loaded and launched. After pressing the start button, the browser was launched, where the battlelog was activated. A dedicated client site showed all the information about your achievements.

All accounts from both the console and the computer are displayed here. Accordingly, you can look at all the successes, view statistics, track your development, find out what will be open to you with a further successful game.

The next step: either just click Quick Match, or start searching for a server where we can activate some filters.

However, no matter how hard you try, the game won't start. The process of searching for a server is just going on and this process was endless. The solution is this: go to the registry, edit the path to the directory with the game. The problem was the presence of Russian letters in the name of the directory. This is how it is, the fate of a computer player: it’s good if there was no glass and only a tambourine was needed.

Play test

Ahead of the launch of the beta test, both AMD and NVIDIA issued a press release showing that both companies have released the latest driver versions. You can read what we were promised:

GeForce 285.38 Key Features:

  • Up to 38% performance increase in Battlefield 3
  • General improvement in stability and visual quality in Battlefield 3.
  • Adding and updating SLI profiles for Battlefield 3, Dead Island, Diablo III, Dragon Age 2, Need for Speed: The Run, andSaints Row: The Third.
  • Improved performance and compatibility for id Software's upcoming RAGE game.

Catalyst 11.10 preview improves the performance of DirectX 11-class graphics cards (Radeon HD 5000 and 6000 series) in DICE's upcoming action movie with and without FSAA and CrossFireX modes.

In addition to increasing the number of frames per second, the driver also brings:

  • Support for Eyefinity 5x1 configurations (landscape and portrait) with AMD Radeon HD 6000 and AMD Radeon HD 5000 series graphics cards;
  • Vision Engine Control Center UI improvements on CrossfireX, GPU Overdrive, and Information Center pages.

In order to try out the latest achievements of laptop manufacturers, I took two machines from the dealerships: an Acer Aspire 7560G and a Dell Inspiron 7110.

Approximately the same in terms of capabilities, similar in characteristics and almost equal in price devices. Let's take a quick look at the features, and then immediately about the impressions of the direct game.

The laptop from Acer is based on a very fresh AMD A8-3500M processor. The graphics system is hybrid, built both on integrated graphics and discrete, in our case, the Radeon HD 6620, the system can combine power in operation. Read more here.

The amount of RAM is 8 GB, the resolution of the 17-inch screen is 1600 by 900 pixels.

The situation is exactly the same as with laptops from Acer, Battlefield3 determined the optimal settings for the Inspiron N7110. According to the results of the comparative game, I can see that I liked playing on a Dell machine and a system from Intel and NVIDIA more. It was just more comfortable, and the game itself, as it seemed to me, worked more smoothly. You can compare the game on both machines using the recorded video above. The system did not crash either there or there. Of course, we must take into account that the multiplayer mode, by tradition, is constantly slower, so the game should show its best side in a single company.

Finally, from technical matters, let's move on to the game itself. When the beta test ended, it became sad. That is, if we limit ourselves to two words - the game was a success. If you start up in the details, it turns out that everything is not so simple. If we talk about a large number of lags, bugs and glitches, then their number is unpleasantly surprising, especially considering that there is only a month before the release. However, the developers spoke about this: it turns out the version that we were shown about a month ago. That is, for another month, certain work was carried out, plus, based on the results of numerous reviews received during the beta test, certain changes will be made, their number, according to the developers, is very large.

So, in Battlefield3, both significant and not very significant changes have been added. The new engine, Frostbite2, did not particularly show its destructive capabilities in the beta test. On the Metro map, it was possible to get rid of some columns and fences, thereby forming defensive and defensive tactics. During the stages of street fighting, you can bring down several balconies. But this is certainly a drop in the ocean. After Bad Company2, many moments in the game were directly tied to the possibility of completely collapsing the house, thereby burying the enemies inside. There are no folding boxes here. It's a shame.

I consider the game with light and various effects, one way or another related to lighting, to be a significant innovation. I'm not talking about the beautiful effect of a grenade launcher flying through the tunnel. Although it looks spectacular, but it's all ruffles. But the ability to blind enemies with built-in flashlights or scope lights is another story. It is clear that in the dark corridors of the subway you give out your location with flashlights, but when you fire and shine in the eyes of the enemy, this gives a significant advantage, it prevents the enemies from competently shooting back.

Another new element in the game, the ability to not only squat, but lie down completely. In addition to the fact that fans of fighting with a sniper rifle got an additional opportunity to competently hide and move, Battlefield3 also added the ability to equip many types of weapons with a special rack, thanks to which you can significantly increase shooting accuracy.

The number of classes is four.

The discovery of new types of weapons, as before, occurs both as the rank increases, and as the same weapon is used. As a result, you will be able to equip various weapons with a variety of gadgets, ranging from different types of sights, handles and stands, ending with devices for extinguishing smoke from shooting.

The division into weapons is somewhat different from that of Bad Company2. However, you can still choose from trunks that are available to all classes. Depending on your specialization, you are able to provide medical assistance, or throw additional ammo for your colleagues.

The sniper can set up a mobile rally point. When respawning in battle, in addition to the location of the group partners, you can choose this very point.

The scoring system has changed somewhat. For a kill, they give 100 points, for wounding an enemy, points are also awarded, depending on how much damage you inflicted. In addition to points for healing or ammo support, additional points are awarded for various achievements during the game. For example, if you killed a soldier who played out and hit a significant number of your teammates in a row. Interactions with friends in your squad are still rewarded with additional points.

At the end of the round, awards and chevrons are issued.

Despite the differences and similarities of the game on different platforms, it was still more convenient for me to fight on PS3, and so I would have played on the console, if not for a surprise from DICE. The last two days on the PC, the Conquest mode was also opened with the Caspian Boarder card and a huge amount of equipment. Jeeps and tanks, helicopters and, of course, planes - the novelty of Battlefield3 - awaited fans of iron cars here. I myself do not like to fly in the games of the series, so I will not undertake to evaluate the quality of the implemented control. But running and cutting through the ground, on the map you constantly feel air battles above your head. This not only adds insane energy to everything that happens, but also adds epicness. An example of gameplay can be seen in the second video.

For a detailed study of the impact of various configurations on the game, you can read the article of our colleagues.

Summary

When you read this article, most likely the first battles in the full version will already begin. At least three of our guys have been really looking forward to the release of Battlefield 3, so see you on the battlefield.

Extremely active battles await us in the multiplayer mode, and, according to the reviews of the gaming press, a very high-quality and beautiful plot of the single-player campaign.

At launch, the game automatically set the recommended settings for the current configuration. I recorded a short video from which you can evaluate the speed of work.

On the recommended settings - many parameters were set to medium values ​​- it was quite comfortable to play. If you only play on such a machine and you have no way to compare, then you can quite comfortably enjoy this amount of power.

But we had the opportunity to compare. We take a second laptop, with graphics from NVIDIA. The processor in this case is Intel Core i5-2410M (detailed information), graphics adapter NVIDIA GeForce GT525M (detailed information). 4 GB RAM, 1600 resolution 17-inch screen /clk by 900 dots.

That is, for another month, certain work was carried out, plus, based on the results of numerous reviews received during the beta test, certain changes will be made, their number, according to the developers, is very large.

So, in Battlefield3, both significant and not very significant changes have been added. The new engine, Frostbite2, did not particularly show its destructive capabilities in the beta test. On the Metro map, it was possible to get rid of some columns and fences, thereby forming defensive and defensive tactics. In the stages of street fighting, you can bring down several balconies. But this is certainly a drop in the ocean. After Bad Company2, many moments in the game were directly tied to the possibility of completely collapsing the house, thereby burying the enemies inside. There are no folding boxes here. It's a shame.

I consider the game with light and various effects, one way or another related to lighting, to be a significant innovation. I'm not talking about the beautiful effect of a grenade launcher flying through the tunnel. Although it looks spectacular, but it's all ruffles. But the ability to blind enemies with built-in flashlights or scope lights is another story. It is clear that in the dark corridors of the subway you give out your location with flashlights, but when you fire and shine in the eyes of the enemy, this gives a significant advantage, it prevents the enemies from competently shooting back.

Another new element in the game, the ability to not only squat, but lie down completely. In addition to the fact that fans of fighting with a sniper rifle got an additional opportunity to competently hide and move, Battlefield3 also added the ability to equip many types of weapons with a special rack, thanks to which you can significantly increase shooting accuracy.

The number of classes is four.

The discovery of new types of weapons, as before, occurs both as the rank increases, and as the same weapon is used. As a result, you will be able to equip various weapons with a variety of gadgets, ranging from different types of sights, handles and stands, ending with devices for extinguishing smoke from shooting.

The division into weapons is somewhat different from that of Bad Company2. However, you can still choose from trunks that are available to all classes. Depending on your specialization, you are able to provide medical assistance, or throw additional ammo for your colleagues.

The sniper can set up a mobile rally point. When respawning in battle, in addition to the location of the group partners, you can choose this very point.

The scoring system has changed somewhat. For a kill, they give 100 points, for wounding an enemy, points are also awarded, depending on how much damage you inflicted. In addition to points for healing or ammo support, additional points are awarded for various achievements during the game. For example, if you killed a soldier who played out and hit a significant number of your teammates in a row. Interactions with friends in your squad are still rewarded with additional points.

At the end of the round, awards and chevrons are issued.

Despite the differences and similarities of the game on different platforms, it was still more convenient for me to fight on PS3, and so I would have played on the console, if not for a surprise from DICE. The last two days on the PC, the Conquest mode was also opened with the Caspian Boarder card and a huge amount of equipment. Jeeps and tanks, helicopters and, of course, planes - the novelty of Battlefield3 - awaited fans of iron cars here. I myself do not like to fly in the games of the series, so I will not undertake to evaluate the quality of the implemented control. But running and cutting through the ground, on the map you constantly feel air battles above your head. This not only adds insane energy to everything that happens, but also adds epicness. An example of gameplay can be seen in the second video.
