A Closer Look at Battlefield 4

1 min read

Its next generation shooting doing its thing. EA showcase a 64 player multiplayer game, showing us what we can expect.

First up, we are told about a new Commander View. A commander is tasked with providing the team with valuable assets and having an overview of the playing field. Good communication will most definitely give a team the edge.

MORE DESTRUCTION! Battlefield players love their destructible environments, and it can definitely aid in certain battles. Part of the demonstration was one  team running into an underground tunnel. After a short fire fight, a tank is spotted. Instead of taking the tank head on, they instead opt to take out the supporting pillar in the underground area, forcing the tank to fall through the floor below it. This is only one scenario, but one can only imagine just how many other unique advantages arise from such destructible environments.

Speaking of destructible environments, the team climb a skyscraper to get a tactical advantage. Something goes wrong and they are forced to jump out of the building. Now I’m thinking “oh that’s quite cool”. Up until the point where the commentator says that the building is coming down. THE FREAKING BUILDING FALLS OVER!

Battlefield 4 is set to improve on the fantastic gameplay that 3 offered. If you’re a fan, you will definitely want to get hold of this game.

  1. That building falling over……I was in shock. Look incredible. If entire cities are destructible like that……no sure CoD dogs can fight that.

        Also it was the recon who did it. Which is makes the recon useful again.

      At first I was thinking “I’m not going to get this, it’s just BF3 with better graphics,” and then I was proved very wrong indeed.

    The players playing the game all knew what they were suppose to do. Scripted like a boss. The gameplay footage was the real deal and it looks pretty.

      Yeah. I don’t find the scripting bad though. They trying to show epic moments!

      We get 3 days of live streaming of the multiplayer now. So it’s all good!

    It’s so soon after BF3… Do I dare get this?

      You do know BF3 was released almost 2 years ago? Premium was keeping it fresh for us monkeys. DICE did DLC right imo and I hope they do the same with BF4.

        Yeah, but with all the DLCs it feels like it is still new 😉

    One Question i pose is , Seeing as though Battlefield 4 multiplayer was shown on PC last night and that some of us will only get a Xbox one next year *exchange rate permitting* How would the actual graphics look like on the current Xbox 360 and PS 3.Im sure not in detail as it looks for PC and new generation consoles

          I’m guessing that Boeing and Sikorsky do not like EA.
