The lights are on
When we were in Los Angeles for E3 2013, we got our first look at Battlefield 4's multiplayer action. Corny "levelution" nickname aside, Frostbite 3's power and the way it enables a new scope of environmental destruction caught our attention.
In the following video, you'll get a point-by-point look at all of the ways DICE is innovating with its next iteration of the Frostbite engine. From dynamic wind effects to server-side water movement that enables deeper gameplay on the high seas, the new engine (which will be powering all of EA's next-generation, non-sports titles) is something fascinating to see in action.
If you missed our coverage of Battlefield 4 from E3, be sure to catch up on it and learn all about how EA and DICE are smartly iterating and innovating on the series.

Looks like a big improvement.
Looks good and all but someone need to remind those engine creators that papers can be lifted by air…. Unless those are really heavy papers on the streets.
I'm going with B4 this time around. COD isn't delivering.
I'm a Call of Duty fan but I'm not buying the game this year. Battlefield 4 looks so much better.
The guys at DICE who made the Frostbite engine must be making so much bank on licensing fees.
I think it looks good and all, but I'm not buying. Maybe someday when they do that premium trick again. That was great, because I also got it on sale.
Battlefield 4, in my opinion, should be the call of duty killer
I did bring this up to my friends. As between us the game Halo is rather dead. Yet we just think if 343 was able to get their hands on the Frostbite Engine. We all agreed that Halo game would be rather different and be so much believable than it is now currently.
Still how much the Frostbite 3 engine. That is rather cool how far they have come with that engine. Next up. Nearly playing reality worlds....or are they reality? Hmmmmmm.
BOOM! Blue and Orange EXPLOSION!
Quite impressive. It seems next-gen is coming with great details improving immersion.
And it comes out on my birthday! Although I'll probably wait for the Complete/Premium Edition. I haven't yet gotten to the bottom of Battlefield 3.
Sooo Call of Duty who?
