Battlefield Hardline Will Be Stable on PC

 

We can all agree that on Battlefield 4 did not provide gamers with a good gameplay experience on launch, but in a recent battlefield Blog post, a developer from Visceral Games called Mike Glosecki says that it is one of Visceral's largest area's of focus. He also promises that PC will have "higher graphical settings" and claim that they are "not just porting it over" to PC.

 

"Battlefield Hardline is being built on PC alongside the other platforms. We’re doing what we can to take advantage of people’s different system with the graphics, framerate, controls, etc. We’re not just porting it over. Battlefield started on the PC with 1942 and we know we have a passionate fan base on this platform. Fans can expect the huge 64-player battles with that rock, paper, scissor gameplay that they have come to love in Hardline as well."

 

 

EA have also recently released the hardware requirements of Battlefield Hardline as the beta is released. They are a little more demanding thatn Battlefield 4, but only a little, with the biggest difference being the inability to use a 32-bit OS anymore.

Battlefield Hardline Will Be Stable on PC  

In terms of game stability Glosecki promised that they have worked hard to ensure that Hardline is stable on PC at launch. 

 

"Stability has been one of the largest areas we’re focusing our attention at Visceral while developing Hardline. I think we can all agree that Battlefield 4’s stability at launch was less than stellar. In order to address stability for our game at launch, we’ve had the game up and running in the multiplayer environment for the last two years with both the development and quality assurance teams playing in daily matches. We’ve run two betas for the game as well, one at E3 and the pre-launch beta which just completed on Feb 9th. Both of these have not only helped us solidify the stability of our servers, but have also provided great feedback for us to address in the game. As a side note, we are also making changes to Battlelog to include a new pop-up on how to activate the plugin in your browser since this was an issue for some of our players."

 

One other thing that Gloseki promises for the PC version of the game is a large selection of Graphics options that will allow the PC version to look much better than it's console counterparts. 

 

"The PC allows you to customize the experience to your liking. You can play at much higher resolutions, 1920x1080 and beyond up to the capabilities of your video card. You can also use much higher graphic settings on PC – which you gives you the best texture filtering, texture quality, and anti-aliasing in addition to other benefits. You can adjust your field of view or run higher than 60 FPS if you choose. You can even play with a three monitor setup for an immersive experience. Lastly, you get to use a mouse and keyboard which gives you the best control setup for a first person shooter."

 

While it remains to be seen whether or not Battlefield Hardline will have a stable and bug free launch, we at least know that Visceral Games has been trying to address the issues made from battlefield fans.

I'll believe that when I see it. Sadly nowadays, not trying to sound like I'm 90, when someone says our game will be optimized I translate that to Yeah, we're not going to bother optimizing it.

But I'm not all pessimistic so hope they deliver .Quote

Don't think it's bold by any means tbh.

Look at previous promises, not just BF, but any title that didn't deliver what it promised or was broken plain and simple, be it pre-order, optimizing, gameplay etc. People will be mad and boycott the game/person for a short period of time and after that will forget about it and scream take my money at the next trailer released by the same company.Quote

I still can't understand those reccomended specs... 760 and 290? What? Perhaps they mean the 4GB 760, in which case it was a pretty dirty move not to mention that. If the game does require 4GB of VRAM, Ill be worried about it being a shoddy console port.Quote
