Powered by the advanced technology of DICE’s proprietary Frostbite 3 engine, Battlefield 4 promises to deliver great visuals and an SP experience similar to COD (hooray). Battlefield 4 multiplayer, on the other hand, introduces key innovations including Levolution, where a dynamic environment reacts to the player’s every move to ensure no two games will ever be the same.
Players will also see the return of Commander Mode, a tug-of-war between two opposing players with a birds-eye view of the battlefield as they provide critical intelligence and powerful assets to their troops below. Battlefield 4 multiplayer will also feature epic 64-player battles running at a smooth 60 frames-per-second on Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®4 and PC.
Battlefield 4 will be available November 1st on PC, X360 and PS3. The game will also be available for Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 at a later date.
