The lights are on
EA and DICE have released a new trailer showcasing some of the features of Battlefield 4's multiplayer modes. The video serves to show the breadth of experiences, from close-quarters combat to the more open theaters for which the series is known.
The ten maps and seven modes offer a variety of encounters and the landscape deformation made possible by Frostbite 3. Bringing down large structures or simply cutting the power to get the jump on enemies are both elements that DICE expects players to factor into their strategies.
You'll get an early chance to try out some of the new offerings when the Battlefield 4 beta launches early next month. If you've pre-ordered the Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe edition, are currently a Battlefield 3 Premium member, or have registered Medal of Honor: Warfighter's Limited Edition or Digital Deluxe edition, you'll be able to get into the beta on October 1. Everyone else can jump on October 4.
During the beta, players can experience the Siege of Shanghai map. Two modes will be available: Conquest and Domination. You'll be able to play the full version on October 29, 2013, on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. For discounted upgrade offers for both next-generation consoles, visit the Battlefield website.
