The lights are on
On Battlefield 4's release day, EA and DICE dropped an exhilarating trailer for the game's multiplayer component. Although the video demonstrate features that were in the last entry, many new changes are flaunted as well.
In the trailer, multiple buildings, a dam, and a skyscraper can be seen collapsing to show that destruction has been given an upgrade. Boats play a greater role this time around, as many maps have more open water areas. Commander mode can be seen briefly as well, with the player controlling an AC-130. Other features include counter-knifing, using weapons while in the water, and taking an ATV into an elevator then driving it off a toppling building.
Battlefield 4 is already out on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. It will release on the PlayStation 4 on November 12 and the Xbox One on November 19. Check out our review of the game.
Our TakeI put hundreds of hours into Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3 multiplayer, but I honestly did not really consider getting this game until I saw this trailer. When I see all of the new features together, it seems like enough has changed to warrant a return to the battlefield. What do you think?

This video makes me want to jump out of an airplane with a pack of C4 while riding a dirtbike while simultaneously calling in an air strike.
That looked AWESOME!
Played the *** out of the Beta! Loved it and can't wait to get it! All the new maps, spectator mode & ofc driving a ATV off the top of the building screaming oooh my god, crashing into a moving helicopter! just amazing! Only i Battlefield my friends!
Now THIS is what Battlefield 3 should have been! Man, I can't play this until I get a next-gen console, which will take a while, but now I'm kind of anxious to play it..
I have never played Battlefield before. I cannot wait to pick this up. It looks pretty fun. Although I am terrible at FPS's...
Now that's a trailer to get people to buy this game. Holy crap that was amazing.
The part with the two guys on top of the tower in the ATV...I laughed so hard! I totally lost track of time today playing this game from 11am to 7 pm lol...so good!
This is going to be my first multiplatformer title for my PS4.
bwaaa explosions^_^ I'm actually unsure of getting it. the story is crap and im tired of fps, but my friends are gonna be there and it is basically a preview for starwars battlefront with the freedom and the vehicles.
cant wait to ride a tauntaun again^_^
The GI review, among others, did not lie. There are a lot of graphical issues on the 360 and PS3 versions of the game. Probably the most texture pop-in I've seen on either console this gen.
