The lights are on
Earlier today, we showed you the new Battlefield 4 map, Paracel Storm. At Gamescom 2013, I played a match on the tropical island on the PlayStation 4.Battlefield 4 feels familiar, but with the advent of next-generation hardware, it looks better than ever before. The game is running at 60 frames per second, which complements the new dynamic aspects of the map.At the start of a match on Paracel, the sun is shining and the wind is calm. As the battle progresses, the skies darken and a storm rolls in. The changes are subtle while playing, but looking at before and after pictures reveal a stunning change.Battlefield 4 also encourages a new level of player agency. New actions that are as simple as closing a metal container door (preferably to protect yourself from enemy gunfire) or as significant as crashing a large ship into the island provide arenas that are constantly in flux. In combination with the traditional Battlefield environmental deformation, these new opportunities to interact with the landscape offer new options when combating the enemy.

Suck on them eggs COD. No excuse now.
Good stuff. So many good games coming soon.
It would be epic if they let you have the ability to nuke the map, but only half of it. Make it near impossible to accomplish unless with a well coordinated team
Feel the power. Can't wait, another thing that is new is your Platoon emblem, it appears on the jet, tank, jeep or... That you in.
I love the addition of a melee counter! Sounds like a little thing to some people, but it will be a great balancing addition in some cases.
You had me at 60FPS.
I really I want to experience BF4 on next gen but I won't be able to buy a console near launch.
BF4 is the reason i'm buying a PS4, and The Witcher 3, though that will not come out till later on next year.
Truly amazing!!! The face to face knife kill mechanic is also at play in Killzone Mercenary! It is an amazing addition. I have had many close calls and turn the tables. BF4 PS4 is a D1P for me.
