EDIT: These screenshots are screencaps from youtube taken in 420p .. the image quality is NO-WHERE near the game's actual graphic quality. 

 
I'm... speechless. I am without speech. if you haven't seen the new video yet, it has cock blowing new footage and you should see it!
New video + Thread discussing video  
The thing i love the most about that video is the explosive grins rupturing through the devs' faces. It's the kinda ecstasy that says "You have no fucking idea what we're bringing to the table"
  
here are some screencaps for those interested :
(I didn't wanna hijack the discussion thread, nor did i wanna upload them to wiki since they're watermarked) 
  
  Enjoy! 
 
 

Edit : Here's a video of all the BF3 footage connected together, without the interviews :

My god... How do they get it to look like that?! I'm not a fan of military shooters, but this eye candy is really tempting me to pick this up.

Looks great.

I just got a new laptop, I really hope it can run it!

That is so beautiful. Look at that blue. That's the best looking atmosphere I've seen in a video game for a long time. It would be perfect for a Hitman game. Dark, moody, mellow.
 
Or a Mirror's Edge game! Oh man! Mirror's Edge with the new Frostbyte engine confirmed!? OH MY GOD!!

Looks real nice.  Looking forward to seeing how it looks at release on consoles and how well it runs.

Don't see whats impressive about those first few shots but the rest look awesome. Pumped as hell.

When I saw the Karkand parts in the video, I pretty much orgasmed. It looks stunning. I'm so excited for this game.

Posted by thornie_delete

Do you think they would do day/night transition in longer rush mode matches?  I think that would be awesome, if not a little over-the-top and impractical.

@thornie: Matches will not be long enough to make day night cycling look good. But I do believe the sun and moon will be map affecting light sources that slowly moves as the match goes on.

FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Rob Runeson was totally flirting with the chick in the video.

How the fuck is this going to run on a console when it's two 550s being used for the current footage?

Posted by GS_Dan

Ooh, is that Wake Island confirmed?

My guess is the consoles will play a version that looks like low/medium settings. So in other words a really watered down version.

Wake Island has been confirmed since they announced the Return to Karkand pack together with Gulf of Oman and Sharqi Peninsula. :)

Best looking game to date.

Man that is some good looking game right there.

Time to upgrade my PC.

How the hell did I miss that? Been following this game like crazy >_>

While he game footage is great, the chick in the video is incredibly annoying.

Posted by Kyreo

Looks real pretty.

Posted by MeierTheRed

Guess it would be pretty stupid to start upgrading my PC now. Might as well wait until we get closer to launch.

That isn't simply "eye candy".. sure it looks nice, but that's not why i'm excited. it's not because of how it looks, it's because of how all i've listed/shown above will contribute to an unprecedentedly stupendous multiplayer experience

The first few shots display how fluid the body animations are.. something you only notice in the heat of the battle

There are two theories so far: Either that maps will randomly pick a weather condition and/or a time of day for the map/server every new round, which will add yet another layer to the environment diversity, or that the server admins choose the time of day for their servers/maps (imagine this server name: GamerSpawn 24/7 Midnight Karkand - Snowy)

Now this on the other hand is fuckin poetry: 

Look at it! Look at it goddammit!

Looks similar to the old battlefield with a new layer of effects and stuff which would look better in motion.

You do realize those are youtube screenshots in 420p right ? watch the video in HD and you'll change your mind

@Ahmad_Metallic: I know, I also have some 1080p video of the game and pause it, it doesn't look that good when paused. It's true of games with too much effects, lots of ps3 games for example doesn't look good when paused and looks good in motion only. This happens when they lack high rez textures. Looks like it's all in the lighting effects or something.
Posted by AhmadMetallic
@HitmanAgent47:  I see... maybe it's the simple fact that it's a video ? when you pause a video, the image just freezes and sort of.. hibernates, if that makes any sense. it just goes dead and looks not so flashy 
 I'm sure if you stand still in BF3 the game won't lack high rez textures, would it? You should know not to judge graphics based on videos 
 
If you can provide a video of a game where you pause and it looks stunning still, i'd like to see!

@HitmanAgent47:  gimme a higher res screenshot then? just one, to compare.
Edited by HitmanAgent47
@Ahmad_Metallic: I just posted three, you want another battlefield 3 screenshot?
 
My opinion is that in motion this is one of the best looking game, but screenshotwise shows the smoke and mirrors, it's not as good as it really seems. It's enhanced by the great lighting effects and motion blur and stuff, but not textures.

No no.. you're saying that the BF3 high rez screens don't look high rez enough. so i'm asking for a screenshot of another game that is truly high rez by your definition, for comparison's sake.
Posted by Wuddel

Guys, thats quite a bit of nitpicking. Its a great looking game. Probably the best looking shooter ever. I do not know how it compares to other recent DX11 games (Witcher 2). For me it is all about the animations. These already have been good in BC2 but when they adding the FIFA stuf it will be truly awesome.

Posted by The_Grindilow

This shit needs to hurry up and get released.

@HitmanAgent47:  i'm asking for screenshots of OTHER games which you think look better than BF3, resolution wise !
Edited by HitmanAgent47

  @Ahmad_Metallic: I have screenshots that looks better screenshotwise, but not in motion. I don't want to be off topic though.
 
Also download that trailer above and pause it. It's 1080p. Alot of times ppl with a ps3 said that's not what the game looks like when it's paused, then you find out that's what it looks like and they aren't used to seeing a game paused. It's all DX11 effects, it seems like you don't understand me, so i'll let you think whatever you want. I just make the claim screenshotwise, the game doesn't look as good as in motion and there is no evidence to counter that. I also used a 1080p video to make my point.

Posted by AhmadMetallic
@HitmanAgent47:  dude, i'm hyping BF3 like a motherfucker.. that means i have all the videos and screens in the world right now. I watch that 1.8 GB video 3 times a day.
 
Basically what you're saying is that BF3 looks better in motion than any other game, but when we pause the videos, other games look better paused? so.. what's your point? Are we playing games here or watching and pausing videos of them?
Posted by Afroman269

I didn't see cocks explode in that video, I'm disappoint......oh wait, you meant mine.

Edited by HitmanAgent47
@Ahmad_Metallic: I heard that excuse before, I think a game should look good paused and also in motion. My point is if a game only looks good in motion, then it's too much effects, sort of like metro 2033 or ps3 excusives. However it can't maintain the textures detail of a nice looking paused game, its shader and lighting heavy and it's not as good looking as we are lead to believe. This is called smoke and mirrors. But I do think it looks fantastic in motion, about pausing screenshots, I have a hobby of taking screenshots so I would like to at least have the option of having a nice looking game to show off or to talk screenshots in. That's all i'm saying. I never said the game doesn't look good in motion, I think it looks excellent. I was just suprised it didn't look as good when it's paused. Look I have thousands of games that looks good when paused screenshotwise, so I think that's important. 
 
Then again maybe it's a directX 11 thing, it doesn't always look good unless it's in motion. 
 
Look you asked me to defend my position and I did exactly that, now you admit that it looks good in motion and could look better screenshotwise. So I made my point and also of how I myself take screenshots during all the pc games I play. I like strong texture work besides strong lighting.

Screenshots of games before they are released always look nicer then the game it seems, but this game will look pretty nice.
