Battlefield 4: Everything We Know Post-Reveal

GamerZines writes:

Last night we attended DICE's official reveal of the next entry of Battlefield 4 in their home city of Stockholm. The event featured lengthy presentations, interview opportunities and most promisingly a live seventeen minute long gameplay demo.

Now we could hide all this information in a delicately constructed preview offering up opinion the seventeen-minute long live demo we saw of the game in action, but we're guessing our musings aren't the main reason you clicked on this article. Instead we think you probably just want the cold, hard facts about DICE's FPS sequel or more appropriately the ones the developer is ready to reveal and funnily enough that's exactly what we're looking to offer. Take a knee and read carefully, as there's a lot of information to get through.

I know I wont bother with the SP campaign.
Cutscene --> linear scripted gameplay --> cutscene --> linear scripted gameplay etc. etc.

Honestly they shouldn't have done a single player. BF1942 was one of the greatest games ever because they were able to focus on their MP formula and they ended up creating something magical. BF2 didn't need single player either and it did just as well. I feel like the SP is "tacked" on in battlefield games, funny, it's normally the opposite with other games.

I found the Bad Company SPs entertaining.

They should offer the SP and MP separately, besides the full package. Most games should. I see a lot of people who don't care for the SP, and if they could just buy the MP for $20 less, they may increase sales overall. I actually like the campaigns... I consider them a warm-up before MP.

I haven't played the single player in any Battlefield games, more than 5 minutes. I don't think this will change for BF4. I don't care how big explosions they can show me in the SP. All I care about is the MP. I think they better focus on MP and sell it for 45bucks instead of 60. Anyone who wants the single player can pay, let's say 30 usd, or 20usd if they already own the MP. :=)

Uh oh-Guitarded pretty much said the same :)

I will have to play it just to say I did, but no one goes into Bf for the god damn campaign. Even if Bad company was pretty good. *Bf3's campaign was a mistake*

"Cutscene --> linear scripted gameplay --> cutscene --> linear scripted gameplay etc. etc."

It's called story telling and it needs to work like that. Some of us enjoy that movie like experience.

BF3's campaign really did feel like it was tacked on, but this looks like a far better effort. I'm really looking forward to it.

I understand your point, that said, this trailer showed too much of that scripted play. In Uncharted for example, you play a good deal before you get into a cut-scene or scripted event. This is like, shoot two guys, go into script, shoot 5 guys, go into script.

Worst input you can give during a scripted scene causes you to die and start over the same scripted scene, the gameplay wants you to behave in a very specific manner. It's not like "This time I will use the left flank and use the cars as cover". And every time you re-play that scripted scene if you continue to not behave in that specific manner, the scene loses more of its excitement.

I dont know what u people expect from a military campaign i think the simplistic campaign of the last battlefield was nice because it was more realistic then other fps campaigns the story is a everyday story that a member of one of our armed services would really carry out and if u play BF for singleplayer your here for the wrong reasons in the first place

spaceg0st1186d ago

if ANYTHING else, co op. Especially when rolling in a squad of at least 4 anyway. Otherwise copy and paste formula. It's old

"if u play BF for singleplayer your here for the wrong reasons in the first place"

No, that's why you are here. The developers obviously don't agree. The campaign will be a particularly labour intensive affair for an already well established multiplayer mechanic. Why would they bother and if so, then do it half heartedly?

Simply put, they wouldn't.

Looks like BF 3.5 to me.
