Full 17-minute Battlefield 4 gameplay video released
EA has released the very first Battlefield 4 gameplay video. It’s 17 minutes long and showcases the first mission of the singleplayer campaign. The player assumes the role of one the squadmembers, and the missions seem to have been stacked in such order to showcase the game visually, rather than have it make sense plot-wise.
Nevertheless, Battlefield 4 is looking very good at this point. We’re not seeing the huge leap in visual style or ability, so it looks more like Battlefield 3.5. Which isn’t a bad thing — BF3 is an awesome looking game.
Judging by the 17 minutes of singleplayer gameplay, we can’t say we’re that impressed. But maybe that’s because you have to play it rather than watch it in a video. The campaign looks and feels very similar to the BF3 singleplayer campaign, in a sense that it’s bits of actual gameplay sandwiched between quicktime events.
One of the biggest criticisms of the BF3 campaign was that it was too distant from the player and relied heavily on scripted events. It doesn’t look like Battlefield 4 is moving away from that formula. Check out the full video below and let us know what you think:
