It might be good to know that producer of Battlefield Hardline Mike Glosecki implied that Battlefield is a PC game first and a console game second thankfully. Battlefield grew up on the PC battlefield and fights on the PC battlefield as it always has in it’s entire franchise. This is what Mike had to say:
“You can play at much higher resolutions, 1920×1080 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 immersed experience. Lastly, you get to use a mouse and keyboard which gives you the best control setup for a first person shooter.” – Mike Glosecki
Many console gamers have lost touch with what is quality. Many large game developers take the easy road and develop for the systems first to lower their budget in production. Why make a graphical superior game when you can just make a mediocre product and cut spending? Exactly the thoughts of companies like Ubisoft
with their downgraded Watch Dogs or lately Square Enix with their awful Final Fantasy XIII ports
. Seems a lot of the big boys are not taking PC gaming seriously. But at the same time these companies don’t mind all the revenue it brings in for them. Though that is slowly changing within the industry and will continue to.
PC gamers have learned to trust certain companies when it comes to developing for the PC even with a potato box in the mix of development. I personally can’t help but think of CD Projekt Red
when I mention these words. CD Projekt Red is the company that delivers The Witcher series. But to clarify the subject matter before I get too off topic. We can at least be thankful Battlefield hasn’t turned it’s back on his main user base. What do you think about Battlefield Hardline? Do you think it’s just another Payday or is it something special? You of course leave your thoughts in the comment section below. Take care. – Craig of GTN
