Destructible environments are only one way soldiers can interact with levels in Battlefield 4. This new video from DICE shows a few of the other options awaiting players.

DICE has dubbed its interactive level design "levolution," and as stupid as the term may be, the environments offer players a number of enticing opportunities to get the drop on their opponents. These include blasting open new pathways, raising security posts to block incoming vehicles, closing shutter gates to block off invading forces, and throwing grenades inside enemy-occupied boxcars and locking the door behind them. Some levels feature more large-scale changes, such as collapsing skyscrapers (which stunned E3 goers), ambient weather, and a city-wide flood. The video also shows a sneak peek at the China Rising expansion pack, which will be available to players who preorder the game or purchase Battlefield 4 Premium.

Battlefield 4 is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 29. It will be a launch title for PlayStation 4 (November 15) and Xbox One (TBA). For gameplay impressions, read Mike Futter's Gamescom preview.

  • Call of duty- can now make hanging objects fall from the ceiling Battlefield- can now make Skyscrapers collapse
  • I can't wait!!!
  • Battlefield wins again. Not that it ever lost.
  • Breaking a dam to flood an entire city. Ramming a US Navy Destroyer into a small island destroying buildings and players in its path. Leveling a massive skyscraper that dusts up the entire map and creates a new area of the map.

    I love you DICE.
  • Nothing like leveling a building to make your weekend better. For the record, the graphics were extremely impressive in this video. Dice just gave me #2 Spruce wood after watching this.
  • There will be lots to destroy on top of our enemies in combat. I'm going to try to level everything I can when I play. :)

    EDIT: I think some misunderstood my intentions, when I originally posted this. It's not something I intend to do the whole time playing, but if I can at certain points, I'd like to utilize the function. Not abuse the heck out of it. Just see how far one can actually take it. Sorry, if my post gave that impression.
  • Mod
    Not gonna lie, when he locked the guy in the train compartment after tossing in a grenade, I laughed so hard I spilled my drink.

    The game looks gorgeous by the way.

    I think as far as the FPS genre goes, I'll be picking up Killzone: Shadow Fall, BF4, and Destiny.
  • this game looks amazing. i remember being similarly wowed by BFBC1, and BF3. DICE just keeps making these games better and better.

  • I might actually get the season pass for this game. It looks great! I can't wait to spam that stupid door on that train car. Although I guess they could probably blow themselves out.
  • I don't usually (actually, the only fps I own is obviously I rarely touch shooters) play fps games, but I'm thoroughly impressed.
  • Thinking about Battlefield 5 (not to mention Battlefront 3) gives me the shivers. If they can do this now, what will DICE be able to do with a few years of experience on next-gen hardware?
  • Ghosts changing maps divided by levolution = pwnd

    Hehe, pwnd.

  • OH MY GOD...
  • Whoa. I have a feeling my first few games will just be me seeing what I can change in the environment with my grenades & guns.
  • Again, this game is why you just gotta get a next gen console. :D
  • Thank god for Battlefield 4!
  • The thing that excites me the most is that like 3~4 games using the Frostbite 3 engine are in production. Say what you will about EA, this is some damn impressive tech.
  • This game is looking sweeter and sweeter with every trailer. buying it on ps4.
  • Looks awesome. Can't wait to play it.

  • Hmm.. ok.. 2-3 months back,i was not sure to buy this game,it did not seem to deliver any thing really new... after this trailer,i thought ok,there is actually alot of new stuff in the game,i think im gonna buy this.

    I just hope that Punkbuster is made better this time around,i cant stand bad loosers/cheaters that destroys legit players experience.
