Visceral is making the next Battlefield game. We knew that EA would be wanting to compete with the annual CoD diarrhea flow, but it wasn’t until this leak that we knew exactly what their plans were. Formerly named “Omaha”, which you will hear throughout the video below, Battlefield:Hardline is Payday with massive destructible environments, “Levolution”, and vehicles. I was almost hopeful until I saw that they are not scaling things back. As I mentioned in a previous comment, I am convinced that it is indeed tickrate that is causing the “netcode” problems for BF4, and that the current national and international Internet infrastructure cannot support the data transfer required to make these games “playable”. I suppose I have probably been wrong more than I have been right, so because I love BF, I am hoping that I am dead wrong on this. (And even that BF4 gets the server love it needs – for graphics, animations, and sheer scale, it is undoubtedly “next gen”.)
