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.

Its reaching a point where the graphics are gettnig so detailed and real, that its getting in the way of gameplay.

All the crap on the screen, all the silly lighting effects. Sure, its fun to sit back and just watch, but when you are trying to play the game, all that stuff just gets in the way.

Funny how some of the older games that had the most fun gameplay, had much more simplistic visuals.

Looks good. But then so did the BF3 reveal videos until we found out that everything in the SP game was heavily scripted in such a way as to be nothing but a rail shooter. Unless DICE has magically found a way to counter hackers in the MP of this new installment (and the latest PB install isn't going to cut it, DICE), I'll be passing on this one.
This one looks the same in that regard. There isn't much freedom in the SP game. You gotta play the way they want you to play.

So, it's confirmed this is BF 3.5.

Guess BF has gone the way of CoD quite fast. Mass appeal over actual good gameplay. A shame, another series destroyed by EA.

EA's MO with Battlefield series: new shinies! Strip down features as much as possible to get the next new one out as quickly as possible for more $$.

Quantity over quality.

I'll pass, thanks.

I couldn't even get through half of the video. Super boring. Same marketing strategy as BF3. SP garbage. If they want SP, they should make it like 1942 SP where the SP was the same as MP except with bots.

Speak for yourself, I happen to like an actual single player experience for my 60 dollars even on titles like this that players are generally spending 95% of the time in mp.

Given that I am willing to bet always online is required, which is fine by me since it's a multiplayer game anyways.
For sure, unless EA releases BF4 in similar fashion as they did with SimCity.

Did anyone else notice the little score tracking thingy in the top right corner? I wonder if the single player portion of the game will be always online so you can see if you've beaten your friends highest score on a level or not.

BF4 now with social networking! Beat your friends high scores and win gold coins that unlock special vehicles and weapons! Log in to facebook using your BF account for super duper rewards! Your always online connection will allow our megacomputer servers to calculate your top scores in REAL TIME and rank you against your buddies! BF4! because EA knows, its in the game...

Correct my friend. IGN has article that states that the single player will have "social components." Given that I am willing to bet always online is required, which is fine by me since it's a multiplayer game anyways.

It's funny, never once have I given a shit about how my friends are doing in their game. I don't want to know either. I am sick and fucking tired of this social bullshit. The entire reason I play games is to escape from society.

For a video game it was an awesome movie..

And for noting, it looks like it was being played on a console rather than a PC. The turning of the character (and how they always travel in straight lines) are usually a dead giveaway of a controller being used rather than a mouse, which tends to be more jerky as players twitch around.

The helo crash was impressive though.

TIL Consoles have 'E' keys.

Game looks great, and I do play the SP campaigns (of all FPSers) so this was cool to see. I skipped BF3 MP because of BC2 burn-out, but i think I'll go back to the grind for this one. This, plus Arma3, means 2013 will be a good year for military shooters.

Trailers are just good marketing,
Same goes for the MP trailer. I bet you it will be edited in such a way that it will look absolutely amazing. Will the map design and actual gameplay be anything like that?
We'll see when the game ships.
BF3 MP trailers looked awesome too.
