Take a peek at the Siege of Shanghai as a team of online B4 players take it to the enemy and capture some control points.
Choppers, attack boats, jetskis… and one big falling building. Battlefield 4 looks like it has everything you could possibly imagine in its multiplayer mode and then some. With up to 64 players working together and against one another in massive multiplayer battles, B4 should have some barn-burners.
Two big things that developer DICE is talking up are the addition of something brand new called Levolution and the return of Commander Mode.
Levolution is basically a constantly evolution map system where you can readily use the environment against your enemies. Want to cut the power to a building, or even knock the whole thing to the ground? You can probably do it in B4.
As for Commander Mode, that’s for the armchair brass in the room. Commanders will square off against one another as they struggle to deliver “critical intelligence and powerful assets to their troops below to the turn the tide of the battle”. Commander Mode also makes use of smartglass integration, or something like it, to call in artillery strikes and the like. This’ll work with both Android and iOS devices.
Battlefield 4 will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on October 29. The next generation will get a shot at the game soon after that as it’s also slated to appear on the Xbox One and PS4. As for right now though, if you’re still playing Battlefield 3 (and plenty of folks are), then you’re in for a treat.
Publisher EA and DICE have announced that the Battlefield 3: Close Quarters expansion pack is being given away to all B3 players right now. For more info on that, and to dig into a little CQC in your game, click here for the info on how to redeem your pack.
