The lights are on
We know. It's the multiplayer portion of the Battlefield series that keeps you coming back for more. For those of you who do like diving into the scripted scenario, there's some new information that EA and DICE have revealed about Battlefield 4.
Players will step into the boots of Sergeant Daniel Recker. He and Tombstone squad are in China on the verge of coup. Should Admiral Cheng make his move, the Russian government will back him up, possibly sending the entire world into turmoil.
Accompanying Recker are Marine Combat Lifesaver Clayton "PAC" Pakowski and Staff Seargeant Kimble "Irish" Graves. As we saw in the E3 trailer, Battlefield is looking stunning, with the kind of destructible environments that fans of the series crave.
Battlefield 4 arrives on October 25, 2013, on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will be coming later.

This is new?
Man protagonist names get crazier and outrageous as time goes on lol, who's naming these guys....
Let me guess... there'll be some dude shooting at each other, uhh.. a few explosions... umm, many sequences of following someone. Yeesh, I hope the fps genre gets a refresher soon. Its so stale.
The plot makes the SP sound even more boring than it looks!
Always been a fan of the battlefield campaign.
i really just do not give a *** about the singleplayer, i will play it but the multiplayer for this game just looks too fun to care about the singleplayer portion
The BF campaigns have been hit and miss, so I'll remain hopeful. At least they acknowledge the flaws in BF3's campaign, I just hope it's as open and fun as they claim.
Excited about BF4, and I'm sure I'll get it at some point, but I've always disliked the fact that DICE has been wasting time, at EA's direction, in adding single player modes to their multiplayer games.
The only one that even had a tolerable campaign was the original Bad Company, and I don't think I made it more than 3 or 4 levels into the BF3 campaign, and that mainly because my internet was on the fritz those days, and I had absolutely nothing else to do not even a book to read or show to watch.
EA sucks for slowly making two of my favorite developers get worse and worse with time (DICE and Bioware).
It's definitely a weak main plot. I hope the character interactions will be worthwhile. The dialogue was the one thing that made BF3's campaign tolerable.
