Battlefield 4 Summary
EA's Johan Andersson wants Windows 10 and DirectX 12 as "minspec for our holiday 2016 games" on Frostbite
Technical director Johan Andersson forFrostbite engine has said he would like to have summer-bound OS Windows 10 and the new shiny DirectX 12 API as "minspec" for future Frostbite games.
He'd like that as soon as late 2016, given the significant gains the two will afford game studios. Adoption among "core gamers will be really quite fast" thanks to Microsoft's upgrade program.
DICE has released Battlefield 4's, which adds a brand new game mode called Squad Obliteration alongside the usual laundry list of fixes, balance tweaks and alterations.
Squad Obliteration is slightly altered version of Obliteration, which had you trying to blow up the opposing team's base with a bomb. It's intended for competitive squad versus squad play, and removes parachute spawns, extends the bomb timer, and forces you to destroy the mode's three targets in order.
has thrown down a community challenge for Battlefield 4 and would-be crime fighters and criminals in Battlefield Hardline. If the community scores 2 billion points in Battlefield 4's Rush mode...
...then the beta for Battlefield Hardline will include the Heist mode. This scrambling for points begins today, January 21st @ 9 AM PST and will end January 24th @ 11:59 PM PST.
With the announcement last month that Final Stand is not actually the last DLC for Battlefield 4, it's believedwill be looking to put together releases of classic maps from the series.
To that end thefor the shooter has been extended right to the end of this new year of 2015. Surely any new such DLC would fall under the cost people have already paid for Premium?
Battlefield 4: Final Stand is certainly the last piece of DLC in the military shooter's Season Pass, but according to a post from developer DICE it's not the last piece for the game itself.
What form that new content will take is not yet clear, but one thing the studio is gauging interest in is remasters of classic Battlefield maps.
