How am I not surprised...

allformats1390d ago

For me, Battlefield = Multiplayer.

ZBlacktt1390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

This and that is why 90% of the dev focus in on that. The life of a game is multiplayer. More so in FPS games.

Back at you iamnsuperman

Countless hours in a very well supported online "mainly" game.

Meanwhile look at the single player trophies compared to online.... looks 95/5 ratio going to the single player. Anyone can rush a game....

Now, pull up this ONE person word on the game ( yet millions will be sold ) and see just how much he did trophy/achievement wise in his well spent 4 hours.

SanMarco1390d ago

I may play it then. Fps sp should always be short and sweet.

"The life of a game is multiplayer"

I completely disagree. Its community is the social aspects but that isn't the full package. I have far more respect for those developers who make a brilliant story and tell it so well because it is so difficult to achieve. The experience some developers create out of nothing is remarkable. That is a huge part to a game and multiplayer can never create those experiences that only occur in single player campaigns (some big experiences to have). Multiplayer does its thing but don't knock the single player campaign

Blastoise1390d ago

They should have either focused 100% on multiplayer like Titanfall or put some effort into a worth-while campaign like Killzone Shadowfall

Kran1390d ago

And this is what is wrong with gaming.

It's like people who buy CoD for Zombies.


TopDudeMan1390d ago

Because they know 70% of the players are gonna just skip the single player.

Septic1390d ago

Battlefield 2 was a pure multiplayer game. I couldn't care less if BF4 had a single player portion to the game. The core of the game is MP.

Army_of_Darkness1390d ago

I'm definitely not buying this crap then.. . Bf3 campaign was fun but I found it to be to short and this is even shorter? ! F#uck that. Killzone shadow fall all the way.

joab7771390d ago

Exactly. Most wouldn't even care if they replaced sp with 3-4 new maps. But, 4 hrs is about 8-10 with higher difficulty and a little more for trophies. But, for $60 to get what should b a gorgeous high octane sp campaign in addition to the mp...definitely worth it. The trailers look pretty good.

Ju1390d ago

$60 + tax and a 4 hour campaign? Hmm....

Enemy1390d ago

Meanwhile, Guerrilla says Killzone: Shadow Fall's campaign is well over 10 hours. Some developers really don't care much for telling a story. But Battlefield 4 has always been about the MP.

minimur121390d ago

im not really a fan of FPS shooters tbh, but i thought id give one a go at the start of a new gen, why not? and i can tell you that im pretty happy ididntopt for BF4, went woth KZ SF instead,im more of a single player guy anyway, and this completely turned me off it.

Bzone241390d ago

It's a really good deal for people that don't have internet. $60 for 4 hours. $15 an hour. Should be marketed as an online only game.

Christopher1390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

So, I might pick it up a few years down the road. Good to know.

Until then, everyone enjoy the MP. Truly. Just, not for me.

LOL_WUT1390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

The single player is just the icing on the cake everyone knows that BF's multiplayer is where its at ;)

Sevir1390d ago

LOL DICE's Producer on BF4 said that their main focus was story and that this was about making players feel emotionally connected to the game and that shooters these days struggle and that BF4 would put more emphasis on making a stronger, lengthy campaign!... LOL and here we find out that it has a 4 hour story campaign!

Not that I had any doubt in my mind but Killzone is looking to be the FPS to own this Fall, with everything surrounding BF4 and COD I'm really glad that Ive got my head focused on that ONE shooter, built from the ground up for NEXT GEN.

ohiostatesman1390d ago

I shall be playing BF4 on Xbox One. Should be fantastic.

MysticStrummer1390d ago

If this is true, then I'll be buying it on deep discount if I buy it at all.

Zeniix1390d ago

It's the first time I actually got interested in the campaign of a bf game and now to hear it's only 4hours long made me a bit sad :/

This trailer especially got me hyped up for the story

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1390d ago

Of course Battlefield is all about the MP it always has been.

paranoid19711390d ago

@Ju and hundreds of hours multiplayer

AliTheSnake11390d ago

It's a cinematic experience with high production, that's why it's 4-5 hours long.

BattleAxe1390d ago

The best single player DICE ever made was Battlefield: Bad Company. If they could make another game like that, and have a fully featured multiplayer suite, they would have an absolute gem of a game.

Brix901390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )


No you I would have never guessed /

Irishguy951390d ago

Thinking back for myself...I have never played a Single player of Battlefield. Its a Multiplayer game to me.

NewMonday1390d ago

never cared before, but BF4 with a short campaign may actually get me to play it this time, this should mean it's not bloated.

badz1491390d ago

4 hours on NORMAL? LOL looks like they put the SP to justify the $60 price! looks like BF4 is gonna win the shorter campaign competition over CoD this time around!

QuickdrawMcgraw1389d ago

Games like this should be $40.00.

Sono4211389d ago

I'm telling you Battlefield 4 is going the way of cod! After playing the beta i'm convinced..

The whole beta felt like batttlefield 3.5 and i'm not the only one who felt like this.. alooot of Youtubers did as well.

Just seemed like Battlefield 3 with upgrades here and there.. don't get me wrong it was fun.. I was just a bit dissapointed..

Now the same people on here that bash cod for doing the same thing (very short campaign and very little changes to multiplayer) are here defending battlefield for doing it? Really guys?... I mean i'm still getting it because I paid it off before the beta came out and i'm hoping the final version will be great but seriously the double standard on here is ridiculous... and now all a sudden it's good to buy a game just for multiplayer? What is going on here?

ZodTheRipper1389d ago

- 4 hour campaign
- Purchaseable Private Servers
- Tons of DLC
- Cross-Platform game (releases on 6 platforms?)
- and not even a big difference to BF3
Have fun with that, guys :D

R6ex1389d ago

Short campaign?

I'll pass.
