We love a good gameplay trailer around here, and the latest one from EA showing off Battlefield 4’s multiplayer play looks fantastic. We already saw a lengthy (17 minutes) demo earlier this year that gave us a look at the fluid and detailed visuals as well as the storyline with a mix of scripted scenes and actual gameplay, and this latest video just adds to the fun.
Judging from the clip, you’ll be able to fight with automatic weapons, perform hand-to-hand combat, and use a variety of land, sea, and air vehicles to take on your opponents.
You can go solo in multiplayer mode, or you run with up to a 5-man squad. There’s also a commander mode lets you take command of multiple squads and “deploy powerful war assets” (read: bombs, etc.), which is an interesting wrinkle.
Multiplayer mode will also include EA’s “levolution”, or destructive environments, so you can actually interact with everything you see--walls, buildings, water, and so on--to gain a competitive advantage.
BF4 includes 10 maps and 7 game modes, and in multiplayer mode you can run custom missions and track stats and wins. The game will be available for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. The open beta starts on October 1st, with a full release on October 29th.
