I gotta say the graphics in this version look great. I decided to give the beta a pass simply because it was one map and I didn't want to spoil it. I plan on getting it oh release and ever since BF1 I've done the beta and by the time release was here I was kind of burned out on the maps included in the beta. One thing I've noticed watching the beta play and in these videos BF4 does ground deformation much better. Using C4 to create a "foxhole" or a depressed sniper position has always been great in BF4. I hope they can tweak the deformation some in 2042 as that is a definite plus.
All that said anyone who runs with the graphics turned up like that is gonna get decimated by the average FPS player with the graphics turned way down for performance gains.
