Battlefield 4 Trailer

A new Road to Battlefield 4 feature on The Battlefield Blog is called "Levolutionizing the Battle," as they continue to work their new addition to the lexicon (we all want to change the world). What do they mean by "levolution?" Well they offer a new trailer where DICE multiplayer producer Aleksander Grøndal helpfully explains: "It could be anything," though backs up that vagueness with lots of examples of elements that can change the outcome of a battle in progress in the upcoming military shooter sequel. Here's word from the blog post:

Ending up with the game-changing concept that is Levolution was a long and iterative design process for us. Going into Battlefield 4 two years or so ago, we first explored a concept that we internally dubbed "Timeline". The thought back then was that a background timer would alter the multiplayer levels and take it into different stages automatically. Basically, map-changing events would trigger automatically no matter what the players did in the match.

But we soon realized that players much prefer manual control to as great an extent as possible – so we steered down the path of maximizing player interaction with our dynamic content instead. The clearest feedback came from all of the players who tried to blow up the tower in Caspian Border that we talked about in the first blog post.

The name was then changed to Levolution. This is a good opportunity for me to assume full responsibility for the name. Although people think it’s a marketing buzz word, it was created as an internal communication tool during development to – in a very simple way – explain the vision of changing the level as you played. It's served us well.

We'll thanks for planning BF4 before BF3 was even released.

In a way it's nothing new; DICE has been doing a new Battlefield game about every 2 years for the last decade.

I was disappointed that they stuck with the main series and didn't try something more experimental, like 2142. But, this does look a lot more ambitious than I imagined at first.

Don't worry, 2143 with mechs is next, Titanfall is owned by Respawn and while EA Partners is publishing it they still will want their own answer to it.

That is actually quite revolutionary and amazing for a mp game.

It's more evolutionary, but still fucking cool. The guy throwing the grenade in the train car and then locking the other guy in was funny.

To bad nothing popped on screen that said he killed him.....nades are nerfed as hell since BF3. You can throw a nade in a bottle neck on that underground train map in a group of 10 people, and you kill 1 or 2 of them. WTF. Same with rockets. Zero splash damage.

This is neat and all, but I like how this guy "took responsibility" for the name, basically acknowledging it as a terrorist attack on our beloved language.

If that was a terrorist attack on the English language, then the US is wage a long term war of total annihilation on it... X D

Back to the game, it does look cool. Not sure if it's "fall for our premium/DLC trap" cool. Kinda reminds me of the cool shit you could do in Red Faction.

One of the levolutions is that users experience a blue tinged screen filter upon loading any map, innovation!
