DAMN! That was my first reaction to this game when I played the beta. This will be one of those games that I fell will be an epic game-changing game (see what I did there)! The gameplay and physics of this are just incredible! The technology behind the scenes also just blows me away. Finally a game that leverages the “cloud” ad hoc to handle so many issues with console gaming today; most importantly the readily availability of server side computing power on the fly. It’s pretty much the concept of thousands of dedicated servers, yet it’s delivering that computing power as a service to the game versus millions of dollars being invested into solely physical dedicated servers. Match making is supposed to be the best that console gaming will ever see.
Here’s a great article I found written by Jon Shiring, one of the software engineers from Respawn.
I can’t wait for this game to drop on March 11th, 2014.
Lastly, here’s a video I quickly recorded from my Xbox One during the open beta for the game.
