The lights are on
EA released new footage of the Battlefield 4 beta, which goes live to the public tomorrow.
The level seen is called Siege of Shanghai, and it's the stage that was chosen to best showcase the game in the beta. Looks pretty impressive. This is Xbox 360 footage, but tomorrow, October 4, the beta will also be open on PS3 and PC.

I loved BF3. It was the first FPS game I felt extremely good online at. Playing the beta, BF4 improves on many things and it's really awesome to see a beta play so well for me at least.
Legit gameplay should just be a failed loading screen, or battlelog not being able to connect you. This is pre alpha more like it. Before i rant about lack of communication, a warning not to get ur hopes up too much, this build is poorly optimized.
Well I' ll have he beta tommorrow so we'll see about that, with what people are saying about the game. And the problems that supposedly plaguing the game.
Coming from the PC closed beta, it's decent at best. Every tactic in each mode ends up being the same each round, so it's extremely repetitive. The "next gen" destruction is simply a few pre-baked destruction scenes ie. the skyscraper. Other than that, the destruction is almost the exact same. To me, it's either what BF3 should have been, or it's more like BF3.5. That's just my two cents though. I'm still on the edge about buying the full version. It's just too similar to BF3 :/
Is there an exact time when we can start this thing up because I want to play this ASAP?
Played for a bit the last couple of days on PC, and I gotta say, I'm loving it a lot more than I loved BF3.
The beta is pretty hip so far. I just wish they picked a map with more small buildings to blow up.
Looks the exact same as BF3. Not impressed. I would love to see it on high-res on the PC or PS4
Has anyone downloaded it onto XBOX 360 today and can get on the servers? I mean it finds the the game, then spend like a minute saying "joining game". Then it can't connect to the server. Anyone having the same problem?
