Finally some Battlefield 4 gameplay, and this time we shouldn’t have to worry about too much of a disparity between the console and PC versions, emphasize the “too”.
Check out the 17min gameplay clip of BF4 set to release on both current and next gen consoles as well as the PC.
From watching the video, it may not come as a big surprise that a lot of people are pointing out the similarities this seems to have with its predecessor Battlefield 3. It definitely has the same feel, even if just in terms of the time period, weapons, etc. But is that really a bad thing?
Dice showed they can stretch out a quality gaming experience through DLC with BF3, so I am sure they have enough motivation to breathe some more life into this current model. Thanks to an interview from the Official Playstation Magazine we now know Dice is adding emphasis on the single player campaigns by allowing a less linear approach and focusing on character development. ”It’s about getting into the story between the characters,” said Karl-Magnus Troedsson, Dice General Manager.
Their goal is to make the single player experience more on par with their widely successful online play. Unnecessary in my opinion, but if they pull it off, great. You won’t see me complaining.
In the long run this may be the bridge they need to bring us a sequel to their futuristic series Battlefield 2142. As they love to hint at with various “easter eggs” and exec comments.
Either way, if you want to think of this as the next DLC pack I think a lot of people will be more than happy to shell out $60 for what BF4 has too offer. Because when it comes down to it, if physics, variety, environmental interaction, and some pretty graphics to boot are your thing, then the Battlefield series is for you.
