The lights are on
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
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.
