Ugly photos from Battlefield 4's Alpha leak new features

Unfinished preview reveals weapons, gameplay, squads

A massive 58 image gallery of an early, half-textured alpha build of Battlefield 4 was making the rounds last night, presumably leaked from a private multiplayer test on the Xbox 360 ("Xenon" Build).  They're pretty gross overall, featuring details of squads, micro-transactions, and what appear to be smallish maps. Browse at your own risk.

The images do give more information about the "Battlepacks" mentioned in the leaked survey from May, citing over 300 possible in-game booster packs containing over 1,200 items including character customizations and weapon attachments. A stupid amount of day 1 DLC is likely. A summary of confirmed maps, weapons, and features was compiled here.

These are a far cry from the polished video presentation we saw months ago, which likely was rendered on an top-of-the-line master race PC, water-cooled by the tears of last-gen's console gamers. We're sure this will look gorgeous on the floor this week at E3, when running on new hardware. 

Here's the notes from the Reddit thread:

  • 5 man squads[15]
  • Knife and grenade customization[23]
  • Variable zoom sights(14x)[53]
  • Battlepacks[20]
  • A redone squad spec system
  • Something which looks like limited ammo for the MBT.[17]
  • Looks like vehicle gadgets and weapons only need to be unlocked once, or the name for the vehicle could be missing in the alpha.[36]
  • HUD customization[47]
  • Two sights on the same weapon?[53,58]
  • The map is called Siege and takes place in Shanghai
  • Possibly an working elevator*
  • Pistol Customization
  • Barrel Customization

Confirmed Weapons

  • CZ805
  • M9 Sidearm
  • The Scout Elite Sniper

  • CZ3A1
  • Knife

Confirmed Sights

  • PKA-S Holographic Sight

At first I thought it would be fun. Then more ideas came, so I kept adding. More! More! But soon it just became stubbornness. Now, as I stare at 10000 words of meandering loon about a subject I'd almost rather be porn, I must question all my life choices.

Someone on Gamefaqs asking the real questions. How mad would you be if halfway through the Mad Max game he stumbles upon a tribe of kids and the rest of the game is a lighthearted romp?

R.I.P. Wes Craven. I'll always remember you for A Nightmare On Elm Street, Scream and Red Eye. I'll try not to remember you for Music of the Heart.

Anyone remember the cartoon "Freakazoid"? I'm doing artwork for a box for work to hold my supplies, but I cant remember some of the better characters. Freakazoid, Steph, Cosgrove, Candlejack, the Lobe, Caveguy... but who else?

Sorting out a bunch of university stuff and going through a bit of writers block. I'm also holding some of my best stuff back for freelancing purposes (uni ain't cheap!), so sorry if my blogs have been a bit lackluster lately. And will be for 4-ish weeks.
