Battlefield 4 To See DICE Adopting Multiplayer Elements for Single-Player
Written Friday, June 28, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
DICE is apparently bringing multiplayer elements into Battlefield 4's single-player campaign, presumably to make it less linear like Battlefield 3's set-piece laden single-player story, while adopting a more open, Bad Company-style approach with loads of vehicles.
"There are signature multiplayer elements that we want to bring into single-player," said DICE General Manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson. "We want to give the player a choice. Do they want to go for the sneaky approach with a sniper rifle and a silenced pistol, or do they want to take a jeep and have the entire squad shoot at everything they see?”
Decisions, decisions. In Battlefield 4, you'll also be able to issue commands to your AI buddies, meaning they can provide covering fire while you flank the enemy, for instance. Environments will also be wide-open spaces that'll feature plenty of vehicles like jetskis, jeeps, helicopters and attack boats to utilise.
You can find out more about Battlefield 4 in the new EA YouTube videos below. The first offers a single-player and multiplayer overview, while the second talks about Levolution, Commander Mode and Battlelog. Battlefield 4 is out on October 29th in North America and November 1st in Europe. Keep your eyes peeled for a hands-on preview this evening.
