Battlefield 4 Campaign Details

The Battlefield Blog offers a couple of high-resolution renders of a couple of Battlefield 4 squad mates to accompany details about the campaign Tombstone squad will conduct as they fight for peace all around the globe. Here's the intro: "The world is on the brink of chaos, China is the tinderbox and you and your squad are the inadvertent spark that could ignite a global conflict. This is Battlefield 4. As Sergeant Daniel Recker, you play as a member of an elite group of unlikely heroes known as Tombstone squad, navigating the turmoil around you as you fight to save the final hope for peace."

It's funny, I remember when BF1942 came out everyone complained about how its lack of single player sucked and they didn't want to just play against bots...

Fast forward 10 years and everyone's bitching about how single player is a waste of resources and all the game is good for is multiplayer...


Also to the guy above me saying that BF is just a blatant CoD rip-off with terrible AI...

1) The AI has to contend with destructible environments, this is much different to code for than standard point-to-point AI with a static level.

2) I'd say that BF is a modern shooter, that's about it. It's a genre. Just because CoD is the only game you know of this genre only makes your ignorance more obvious. If anything i'd call both BF and CoD "blatently ripping off Action Quake" because to my knowledge that was the first true modern FPS.

....also funny that the AI most games have is all stemmed from the AI developed by a modder for either Quake or Quake 2, i can't remember which one. But long story short, almost all FPS AI is stemmed from this very old code, as it's perfect for point-to-point. Destruction just fucks that system up, and there's yet to be a giant leap forward with the AI contending with dynamic environments yet. Hope it happens soon though, hate dumb AI in otherwise smart games. And still all that being said, the BF AI does manage quite well considering the nightmare it must be to code.
