Battlefield 4 To See Return of Commander Mode and Three Factions?
Written Monday, April 15, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
According to a slightly dubious-looking Battlefield 4 poster spotted by YouTube user Luger700 at their local GameStop, DICE's next-gen sequel will apparently feature three playable factions and will herald the return of Battlefield 2's Commander Mode.
While the poster doesn't exactly look legit, the list of features certainly seems more than plausible, with Frosbite 3, destructible environments, vehicles and so on listed alongside the Commander Mode and factions. The three factions in question are Russia, China and the US, with you likely to be playing in single-player as a US soldier (it stands to reason, right?), while the others will probably serve as antagonists.
Battlefield 2's Commander Mode meanwhile, saw you managing the battle from the skies, dropping supplies, placing troops on the battlefield and sending in artillery strikes. It'd certainly be a welcome addition for Battlefield 4, so we'll remain cautiously optimistic on this.
Until EA offer confirmation, we'll tentatively serve this with the usual pinch of salt, but it all seems perfectly plausible. Take a look at the video below. Battlefield 4 is out in autumn 2013. You can read our first impressions here.
