Now that we’ve been able to get a decent glimpse into the multiplayer offerings of both Battlefield 4 and Killzone Shadow Fall, we’ve decided to place these two juggernauts side-by-side for your viewing pleasure. There should be no debate that these are two of the finest looking launch titles ushering in the next-generation of gaming as both DICE and Guerrilla Games seem to spare no expense in the eye-candy department. Please be aware that due to the video compression of youtube, the visual presentation of both games does take a dip.
Things to consider when looking at this footage for a seemingly fair assessment, the footage of Battlefield 4 is running on a more than capable PC while Killzone Shadow Fall is flexing the muscle of the PS4 hardware. Battlefield 4 is offering 32v32 running 60 FPS @ 1080p while Killzone Shadow Fall is set at 12v12 running 30 FPS @ 1080p (note Guerrilla Games is aiming for 60 FPS for multiplayer).
Based on what is depicted in the this footage, the sound effects and gunplay are stellar in both cases. While Battlefield 4 impresses with its dynamic destructibility and open scale warfare, Killzone Shadow Fall impresses with its dynamic lighting, volumetric smoke and PhysX particle effects.
From what’s being shown so far, which one are you more leaning towards? Be sure to leave a comment below.
