Electronic Arts and DICE lifted the lid on Battlefield 4 at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The Frostbite 3 engine-powered, “genre-defining action blockbuster” sequel, said to be “more human, dramatic and believable than anything before it,” will launch for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC this fall.
A 17-minute gameplay demo of Battlefield 4 shows the player, a soldier named Recker, open his eyes to discover he is trapped in a fast sinking car with three of his squad mates. Shooting the window is the only way out, but there’s a chance not everyone will survive.
“Players will learn how to work together in both the Campaign and Multiplayer, issuing squad orders and comparing achievements in both experiences,” reads the press release. “Adventure and Competition will unfold through a series of beautifully crafted locations constructed with some of the best art and sound design in modern shooters.”
Consumers who pre-order Battlefield 4 at participating retailers will receive a Premium expansion pack at no additional cost. On Origin, a Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe edition including the game, bonus digital items, Premium expansion pack, and exclusive access to the multiplayer beta, is also available.
