EA Reveals Battlefield 4 With A 17-Minute Trailer
Battlefield 4 will land on PCs this autumn following EA’s reveal of the upcoming shooter within a 17-minute gameplay trailer.
Powered by the Frostbite 3 game engine, EA touted a more open world single player than previous entries to the Battlefield series, and stated that users would “experience huge environments”, although the 17-minute trailer, which you can view below appears to show the title’s more linear elements.
“We are so humbled and proud to debut Battlefield 4 on a global stage with simultaneous events in San Francisco and Stockholm,” said EA executive Patrick Soderlund.
The 17-minute video is jam packed with amazing graphics, intricate story lines, and plenty of action.
Small details like facial animation and ridiculously realistic lighting effects are definitely very apparent. Maybe a new graphical coat of paint is all it’s going to take for us to get excited about the first-person video game genre again. It’s expected that Battlefield 4 will go head-to-head against Activision’s still un-announced, but very expected, next-generation Call of Duty title later this year.
The YouTube video is titled “Fishing in Baku” and was released on Battlefield’s website as well as the “Battlefield 4” YouTube page.
“These 17 minutes of ‘Battlefield 4’ gameplay provide an exclusive look atBF4‘s single-player campaign. With dynamic destructible environments, epic vehicular combat and the chaos of all-out war, ‘Battlefield 4’ gives you the freedom to do more and be more for an unrivaled entertainment experience,” says a statement on the video game’s website.
The game will be released on the PlayStation 4 and next-generation Xbox but it will also, surprisingly, receive a pared down PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release.
Players can pre-order Battlefield 4 now, which will entitle them for a Premium expansion pack. Meanwhile, PC gamers can order the Digital Deluxe edition currently on Origin, which includes the title and additional in-game items.
Those who pre-order will also be granted access to Battlefield 4’s multiplayer beta once it launches.
