DICE: Bad Company 2 'reaching' Uncharted 2's graphics

01-21-2010, 06:36 PM
Upcoming FPS Battlefield Bad Company 2 is "reaching" the graphical quality set by last year's stunning PS3-exclusive Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but it will not surpass it, developer DICE had admitted.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com, producer Gordon Van Dyke said no game can claim to better the graphics seen in Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2.

"I wouldn't make that kind of claim," he said. "Uncharted 2 is an amazing-looking game. But we're reaching that level of quality. It's going to be hard for any game to be able to make a claim that they look better. But we are getting to, I feel, that level, where it's looking very impressive. When you see it - and I've heard other people say it as well, so it's not just me - other people are saying it's getting there."

Uncharted 2, released last year, raised the bar for video game graphics, with incredible animations and detailed environments wowing PS3 owners.

But Van Dyke reckons Bad Company 2, which is our 37th most anticipated game of 2010, will surpass Uncharted 2 in one key area: vistas.

"The thing is though, we have much bigger environments. To even be close, to me is quite an honour as a developer. The one thing I did was, when I looked at their game I was like, damn them! What have they done to the rest of us? I was looking for something where I could say, okay, that we're doing better. I looked at their vistas, and I think that our vistas, because it's in game, this is actual in-game terrain you could theoretically take your soldier and walk up to, our vistas are better. Naughty Dog, if you hear this, I challenge you versus our vistas!"

Hell of claim but gametrailers on spike new season premier is tonight with a focus on BFBC2 and watching the commercial all I can say is HOLY SHIT. I think the BETA with one level by itself was better than MW2 I really hope this game gets the attention it deserves. Single player info will be shown tonight also. For those who didnt get in the beta check this out and be amazed this game is looking like its taking FPS to a whole new level.

I will be getting this game. Did not play the first one, but will check this out for sure. Was going to get Army of Two 40th Day, but after seeing this, I'll pass and just wait for March.

as always im on board for the next one. this is my new favorite shooter franchise and cant wait to start playing it. i enjoyed the beta but just like the Demo for BFBC1 they picked a stupid desert map again and it doesnt show off what this game engine can really do.

All over this game when it comes out. HUGE fan of the BF series since 1942 on PC 8 or so years ago.
