Battlefield 4: Official 17 Minutes "Fishing in Baku" Gameplay Reveal

EA: "Battlefield 4 will release Fall 2013. The "Fishing in Baku" video is shot entirely in-game and is the first glimpse of the human, dramatic, and believable single player campaign in Battlefield 4. Available for pre-order now."

The story is too old to be commented.

OMG...... I'm just speechless.

xPhearR3dx1607d ago

Not getting the OMG feeling like I did with BF3. It's just more of the same at this point. Not that that's a bad thing because BF3 was great (On PC at least). But I'd rather see Bad Company 3 at this point.

DeanSanchez1607d ago

I'm expecting a lot from this game, but as of right now...

... sweet Samuel L. Jackson! I want it now

thechosenone1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

That looked beyond amazing, now all I need to see is the PS4 version. If you people don't think that this is a significant step above BF3 then you need to learn how to analyze dem graphics cause that **** blew BF3 out the water. And people are already starting to compare Killzone against this but in my opinion KZ:SF looks so much better.

dat BF4 water

Bathyj1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

Yeah, it looks amazing but it seems to quick for a BF4. Id prefer BC3 as well by thats because I want a decent single player campaign.

Then again, this does look like SP gameplay so maybe theyre fleshing out the campaign with this game.

Irishguy951607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

****ing unbelievable...seriously almost looks real

Edit--But whats with the Ultra action route all FPS devs are turning towards?

Both Killzone:SF and BF4 have these mad action sequences you'd only see in the movies..and cod, both of them have ditched their semi realism by now it seems.

NatureOfLogic1607d ago

Seriously, If that did not hype you, I don't know what can. This is coming from someone who's getting sick of FPS. I didn't even buy BF3. the last BF game I bought was bc2. I'm really looking forward to this one though.

NewMonday1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

looks like BF3. but maybe improved water and lighting effects. the important thing is how MP looks and plays.

and I can see the complaints about grenade launcher spam already(not that I mind).

DeanSanchez1607d ago

When you look at this gif (

the water in the upper right is actually fluid, dynamic, and even see-through! amazing little details

CyberCam1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

Too me it's BF3 with better graphics.

There were no new gameplay elements that stood out at all. No lean, no free look separate from your crosshairs & I love the part were he magically clicks an invisible switch in his left hand & all the opfor's magically have an orange triangle over their heads, saying here shoot me first please!

I must say the lighting & particle effects look amazing but that will wow most only for about week, then everyone will finally start looking at gameplay!

ArmA 3 to me still has better controls & gameplay elements and it's not so hollywood action based, I'm really sick of that now. Best of all, no Origin!

gedapeleda1607d ago

When bf3 was revealed people said they're speechless but when it came out all hell broke loose in the forums.
It's just the way devs play these games, walking around,looking arounds,swaying,slowly progresing forward.In reality you just rush rush rush gota get there shooot shoot shoot,now run there,open the door shoot shoot shoot...

xPhearR3dx1607d ago

I think you guys are missing my point. I never mentioned graphics. The visuals are impressive, no doubt about that. It's the gameplay. It's just more of the same. Like I said, not a bad thing, but I really feel they should have held off on BF4 and went with Bad Company 3.

NewMonday1607d ago



was very hyped for the SP of BF3, after I actually got my hands on the game I couldn't get myself to play it for more than 40 minutes total.

I'm amazed at just how versatile that engine is. It does look more like an improvement on Frostbite 2 than a whole new engine but the effortless manner in which it handles the varying scale, damage, physics and weather whilst keeping the visual integrity intact and so free-flowing. Its incredible.

SolidStoner1606d ago

well this game looks polished BF3, its not a bad thing, since battlefield 3 was and still is exelent game..

BF4 seems to have insane amount of detail and destruction I never seen in games before! And Im sure multiplayer will be great as always... But I very dislike this Single player campain, I will never play it just like all latest COD's or BF, all the same.. just beautiful surroundings and full scripted events, with lots of pointless battles where you are a terminator from the future, since you kill everyone, but no one can kill you... that is soo boring.. and that pointless enemy invasion from all directions, its like they are adding more pointless gameplay time and saving playing space..

I want BF single player campain to be more mature, not just pointless Hollywood style running and shooting with special effects, helicopters flying around, all that looks like bullshit and childish.. all that we already have in COD games, Dice must make it more realistic and show us true war like it is in Online MP BF games... and even there they now are adding arcade elements...

TRU3_GAM3R1606d ago

i expect more from bf4 still looks good though but crysis 3 looks better.heres proof

JC_Denton1606d ago

I agree. This doesn't look anywhere near as impressive as Battlefield 3 did back when it was first shown off. By the way, does anyone know if they were trying to be funny during that final slo-mo scene? I thought it was hysterical. If they were trying, then bravo. If not, then I fear for this game. . .

silenius1606d ago (Edited 1606d ago )

But I will never buy again a game that supports USA nor any other Pro war country.

I'm so sick and tiered to see such a massive recruiting propaganda for the military forces...
Fuck that... you want to be fair EA and Activision?! Then Make a game that you are actually fighting the real terrorists from USA.
Now THAT would be a twist and turn thing.


Just make a FPS war game that DOES NOT HAVE REAL COUNTRIES. But that won't happen cause it kills the real purpose of this game.

Axecution1606d ago

Guys i agree this is was too similar to BF3. They should have made it an over-the-shoulder puzzle game this is just bs.

MaxXAttaxX1606d ago

It looked pretty good. Hopefully the single-player campaign will be better than the on BF3.
If so, I'm sold.

GuyThatPlaysGames1606d ago

Why change something that is already so great? BF3 was the most fun that I've had with a FPS since CoD4!

Absolutely stunning. And listen to that Sound Design.

Absolutely Breathtaking.

CyberCam1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

How long will "Absolutely Breathtaking" visuals wow you... what week at most?

I'm more interested in gameplay elements, that's what will last the entire time you're playing!

Omegasyde1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

It has a black hawk down feeling to it. I do agree the dialogue between the marines(? I think but the flag on the arm might mean these guys are delta).

I like how the call the black guy "Irish". We had a guy in our unit who's last name was McLeod. We also called him Irish hahaha.

EDIT: Yep, this time you play as delta tier 1 operators (call-sign wolf pack)...

I am not a big fan of playing as special forces and I would prefer they kept it like BF3 where you are part of a bigger unit advancing. Usually tier-1(SF etc.) go ahead or behind enemy lines. I rather be in the front lines with 100+ vs 100+ instead of small unit operations. (think Cod4:modern warfare when you assault that desert city before the helicopter/nuke scene. That was epic)

Reverent1607d ago

@CyberCam, call me easily impressed, but I still think Battlefield 3's graphics and sound are unbelievably beautiful.

I think BF4's "Absolutely Breathtaking" visuals will last a tad longer than a week... -_-

Cupid_Viper_31607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

That black dude reminds of Omar from "The Wire". He looks and sounds like him....

The voice acting is pretty good actually. I just hope the single playing is as engaging as this video.

EDIT: I just looked it up and it is Michael K. Williams "Omar" from the Wire. Lol....

That video was intense... Seems like I'm all in when this hit store shelves.

DeanSanchez1607d ago

I'm studying at Gnomon School of visual effects in Hollywood, and I just noticed how there's just so many technical aspects of this game that just blew me away, that most people wont even realize.

Amazing presentation.

pody1607d ago

It might be Omar's face, but it's damn sure not his voice.

Cupid_Viper_31607d ago

@ Pody

It's been officially confirmed that it's Michael Williams AKA "Omar"

"DICE is using real world actors to play the roles of its soldiers. Pac is played by The Wire's Michael K Williams. The soldier's facial animations are exquisite."

Dirtnapstor1607d ago (Edited 1607d ago )

Agreed wholeheartedly! This is going to be epic...holding out for the PS4 version!
