Battlefield 4 Preview
A Look At Battlefield 4’s Mad, Magical Multiplayer
This time next week we’ll be blowing up our friends, family, and anybody else that thinks they’re hard enough on Battlefield 4’s incredible multiplayer.
How do we know it’s so good? Multiplayer is the series’ speciality. Battlefield 4 is set to continue the series’ tradition of providing engrossing, intense, and phenomenal in-depth multiplayer campaigns that can’t be found anywhere else.
But Battlefield 4 isn’t a one-trick pony. The game’s single player has been much improved and additional features to gameplay promise to satisfy even the most fanatical Battlefield fan.
Available from 1 November for Xbox 360, PC, and PS3, Battlefield 4 is also due to arrive on PS4 and Xbox One as a launch title.

Satisfying solo play
EA is promising a stellar single player story for Battlefield 4 with a stricken and lost Tombstone Squad struggling to find its way home from a bloody international conflict.
Gritty realism? Well, there’s dog punching and swearing aplenty in the official trailer. What can’t be denied are the game’s visuals – Battlefield has always been beautiful to look at and looks better than ever from what we’ve seen so far.
Players will now also be able to wield dual-scoped weapons and mark targets’ positions out to other members of their platoon. A variety of vehicles will also be available for players to control in certain levels.
Magnificent multiplayer madness
Developer DICE has confirmed players will be able to choose between the U.S., China, and Russia as playable factions. The PC version and next-generation consoles will also be able to host games containing up to 64 players.
The biggest tweak from Battlefield 3 is the reintroduction of Battlefield 2’s Commander Mode which gives multiplayer matches a real-time strategy feel for some, and lets players issue commands to others, deploy weapons, order missile strikes and more.
Spectator Mode has long been on fans’ wish lists and finally makes an appearance, allowing people to watch large-scale battles instead of fighting them. Spectators can choose from a variety of views, see soldiers’ Player Cards, toggle display layers and other features.
Ten maps will be available alongside new game modes Obliteration and Defuse while kits have various enhancements.
And, of course, there are a huge variety of new vehicles for players to mow down enemies with including armoured cars, attack helicopters, jets, and more.
Battlefield’s a series where it’s easy to get carried away with your stats in only the most obsessive way possible. Battlefield 4’s new Battlelog app lets gamers connect with their friends at any time through smartphones, tablets and more.
Battlelog can also be used as an in-game aide to launch matches, create custom challenges for friends, scrutinise local community leaderboards, statistics and much more to enhance and complement the full Battlefield experience.
