Battlefield 4 Gameplay Trailer; Preorder Bonus DLC

This "Fishing in Baku" trailer (NSFW) offers the promised full reveal for Battlefield 4, saying the next installment in DICE's military first-person shooter series is due this fall. Starting with a cinematic which seems to have a "no Russian" Kobayashi Maru quality, the 17+ minute clip then shows how this scenario came to be, segueing to gameplay footage showing hyper-realistic indoor and outdoor environments, stealth, sniping, destructible environments, vehicles, lots of flanking (by the player, if not the enemies), lots of seagulls, lots of puddles, the ability to shake off being shot by a few rounds from a mini-gun and having an entire factory collapse on you, a little field surgery, the Battlefield version of the G-Man, and more. It's apparent this is shot using the PC edition of the game, seemingly confirmed by screen prompts absent of references to those colorful little buttons that don't appear on your keyboard. The game is now being offered for preorder, which entitles purchasers to a free premium expansion pack. The preorder page also offers a few details:

Battlefield 4™ is the genre-defining action blockbuster made from moments that blur the line between game and glory. Fueled by the next-generation power and fidelity of Frostbite™ 3, Battlefield 4™ provides a visceral, dramatic experience unlike any other.

Only in Battlefield can you demolish the buildings shielding your enemy. Only in Battlefield will you lead an assault from the back of a gun boat. Battlefield grants you the freedom to do more and be more while playing to your strengths and carving your own path to victory.

In addition to its hallmark multiplayer, Battlefield 4™ features an intense, dramatic character-driven campaign that starts with the evacuation of American VIPs from Shanghai and follows your squad's struggle to find its way home.

There is no comparison. Immerse yourself in the glorious chaos of all-out war, found only in Battlefield.

The graphics! Oh, the graphics!

Too bad Battlefield singleplayer has been "meh" since 1942. That's 71 years of crappy singleplayer!

The engine is just great. There's that face rendering tech that's been in the news! The epic PRT lighting looks fantastic, and the post process effect spam is more eye candy than ever. The artists are extremely talented. Also, the sound is killer! Although I'm sure there are a lot of "HDR sound" haters out there, but I think it's brilliant and really brings games to life. It makes the loud sounds overtake the quiet sounds, just like our ears do in real life. The reverb setups they use are spot-on. It all sounds very believable.

So, it looks great. I'm sure the singleplayer game is gonna be Battlefield: Rail Shooter 4, and the multiplayer will delivered in $15 doses. SP is one for YouTube, MP will have to wait for beta/demo/reviews.
