    Why Star Wars Battlefront looks so amazing on PS4

    Star Wars Battlefront has been wowing folks with its visuals, particularly on PS4, and DICE has jumped up to explain how they've managed to achieve this:

    With Uncharted 4 shoved into next year, could this be a good contender for best-looking PS4 game of the year?

    Mike, I'm gonna mention two things and these things are fairly rehashed.

    1) getting max out of a system means nothing. it's relative. it just means they did their best with the tools and situation provided. it could still be using 50-60% of the system's actual potential. and i would not be surprised if this game is using about that much (rough guess) considering it's a multiplat game (and who knows, might even be a cross-gen game...i haven't looked into it)

    2) until they show us "gameplay" pics at least, I don't care what the engine can do. i mean, yes, it's still a good sign that they're able to get the engine to display these graphics in realtime but all of this means little until we see actual gameplay and or actual gameplay pics.

    that's all.

    Couldn't have said it better. They probably mean they've maxed out the game engine rather than the hardware itself.

    oh that's what they always mean. they do it on purpose :P

    only time i've seen someone actually talking about how much of the console's potential has been used...is ND and well, they kinda can because they make exclusives that are created to take advantage of the hardware. no corner cutting due to multiple systems.

    EDIT: one other point i wanted to add, every time someone shows "engine footage", you can bet your bottom the actual gameplay won't look the same. or they'd just show gameplay.

    i guess, it could also be that the game is still in early stages so all they could come up with was engine footage as it's easier to fill in places that are still in concept and aren't done yet (engine footage can be anything they want it to be within the limits, it's almost like a full motion video, just realtime and within the larger limits of the engine) but i would wager that the game ain't gonna look like this.

    hopefully gameplay doesn't look too far off but i'm afraid it might. now, could ND come up with graphics like this or in other words, is PS4 capable of these graphics? YES and probably more! (but we don't know the true power yet so i'm guessing) but considering it's a multiplat game...i highly highly doubt it's going to look like that.

    i'm not expecting those graphics even on the PC version. i'd love to be proven wrong and be surprised but nah...

    I'm just stoked to hear about the game. It's about time a game for Star Wars is actually happening. There are some older videos on Star Wars Battlefront 3 on youtube and if they are even semi accurate it will be a fun game.

    I thought the game was only 1/4 of the previous game on the PS2 or is that just a rumor?

    If the graphics are anything like the preview, this could be quite the treat. Perfect setup before being letdown by the movie

    We likely see more footage at E3 so we'll find out then. They always say they max out this console and that console but somehow as the generation goes by they manage to do more.

    I'm reserving judgement & keeping expectations low because listed reasons
    No space battle,Galactic conquest, unique class systems, Campaign & offline conquest like the past games
    AT-AT are on rails similar to the C-130 of Battlefield
    Pre-order Nonsense

    exactly, and yet they have maxed it out. maxing something out is very vague, it's easy to max out a console if things are also not optimized for it. in which case the resources are used horribly if anything. Because this is coming from EA/DICE, I really don't believe a thing they have to say about anything at all.

    Crysis 3 was maxed out on the PS3 yet had garbage framerate & sub HD resolution
    While the older Killzone 3 was locked to 720p at 30 FPS with optional Splitscreen that too "maxed out" the PS3

    Maxed out can mean anything
