Battlefield 4 Beta Out Today and My Impressions

Hey Guys, the Battlefield 4 beta is out today. Most of you are hopefully at least are currently downloading the beta. I downloaded the beta about an hour ago and finally got a chance to play it. However, this beta is about 1.54 GB big on Xbox Live (I'm doing this off the top of my head, but this beta takes over 1 GB).

Remember that this is only the beta and may not reflect on the final product. I first went into the customization options. I wasn't able to customize my character; however, I was able to customize my weapon. Even though this is only the beta, the weapon customization looks promising. Frostbite 3 should really be the main point of this article. This is my opinion, Frostbite Engine 3 looks great during cinematic moments (the only one being the intro of the game), but the game does not look great in the gameplay. Frostbite Engine 3 looks, if not, exactly like Frostbite Engine 2. However, I must praise Frostbite Engine 3 due to its superior physics compared to Frostbite 2. If you are a veteran of the Battlefield series, the controls will make you angry. The control layout is now the same as any ordinary first person shooters. Really DICE? Anyways, there are only a few new mechanics that were added. One being that your are now able to lean out of cover. This only comes in handy on rare occasion. The kill-cam or whatever you call want to call it also changed and so did the spawning options. The new spawning mechanic is not too bad. You're now able to see the entire map and choose where you want to spawn, but only at points your team has.

The beta is not terrible. However, it is buggy which may irritate you. I enjoyed my experience with the beta, but I was really hoping for more out of Battlefield 4. However, this beta will not stop me from not buying the game. Battlefield 4 released on October 29th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Till Next Time!!
