The Patrick Bach Interview – Part 2: ‘Campaign Battlefield.’ “I think people will be surprised.”

Sam Clay - "VG247 sat down with Executive Producer Patrick Bach to talk all things Battlefield 4. Here’s the second part of our massive video interview, “Campaign Battlefield”, where we discuss how the multiplayer values have influenced the single player campaign."

The story is too old to be commented.

I don't remember anything anout the story in 3, and seeing the lack of comments here I don't think anyone cares for it story.

The last campaign I finished on a game known heavily for multiplayer is Black Ops, I just could not fing time to complete the story when I was too bust trying to prestige up. Maybe IW or Tryarch could borrow from Guerilla on the XP scoring system from Killzone Mercineries and let you cash out while your playing single player, to use in multiplayer so your not consistently getting your a$$ handed to you with no unlocks. Just a thought

Good I hope so, cause Battlefield 3 campaign was not that good, especially the anticlimactic ending.

So you are saying breaking out of custody, chasing down the person who would nuke the city. Then beating him to death was anticlimactic? Especially since it tied in with the start of the campaign. You have got to be kidding me. The campaign wasn't the greatest thing ever but it was definitely a good campaign. You probably didn't even play it and or complete it.

Why the hell people are making such a big deal about my comment? LOL! Yes I did play the game that center around the interrogation scene especially at the end, when the main character marine buddy help him escape, and you pickup where you left off in the train! Then you had the whole car chase scene in the city, where you beatup the bad guy in front of a crowd. Then the scene went blank after the main character stop the bomb, without knowing what else happen to the main character, so it was very anticlimactic. There you go I not only gave better detail to the ending than you, I played it.

So you don't know what your talking about, and no I am not kidding you. Its all true.

Didn't they say the same thing about BF3's campaign? I play every campaign before hopping onto MP, I'm excited because what was shown so far looked pretty good. I liked the wide open map that I could explore instead of it being linear.

Just found this though from one of the devs "I hate to say this, but storytelling does not come naturally to Swedes," said Soderlund. "But we’re good at designing systems, and that’s what these games really are. Minecraft puts a box in front of you and says, ‘Do whatever you want with it.’ Battlefield is a system designed for entertainment rather than for telling you a story."

Storytelling is not natural to Swedish _technicians_...

Considering Swedens small poulation there are LOTS of authors. Most write crime stories - Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, Lisa Marklund, ...

The story isn't what makes BF so great, it's the MP. However, the campaign is a great way to relax and unwind by shooting a bunch of people in the face. It's what made CoD so addicting. That ping sound when you get a headshot. I haven't noticed if BF gives audio cues for headshots.
