Next-gen needs to be more than just more polygons – DICE
The Battlefield 4 footage wasn’t all that innovative.
DICE’s Patrick Bach has revealed that next-gen needs to be more than just polygons and about improving the gameplay and narrative.
There’s no doubt that Battlefield 4 looks amazing but DICE are planning to do a lot more with the game than just push the graphics. They haven’t revealed a lot of details on the multiplayer but they did show some single player gameplay.
“Next-gen needs to be more than just more polygons. To us, it’s like, how do we evolve the gameplay? How do we evolve the narrative? How do we evolve the things around the technology? How do we make it more Battlefield?
“So, moving elements from multiplayer into single-player is one way of evolving it. How do you get people to care about the characters, is also lifting the bar, rather than just doing the stereotypical stupid shooter, where you don’t care about the missions or why you’re doing what you’re doing, and why do these guys around you even exist?”
He has a point but the initial Battlefield 4 reveal does nothing to justify his point that they are targeting more than graphics.
