No co-op in Battlefield 4
So far we’ve only seen the singleplayer portion of Battlefield 4 — all 17 minutes of it. DICE and EA are opting to start with the singleplayer unveiling, just as they did with BF3. While the player assumes the role of a soldier in a squad in Battlefield 4, there won’t be a any co-op feature, DICE confirmed.
In a recent interview (via Shacknews), DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson said that they cut co-op from Battlefield 4 so that they can focus more on the singleplayer and multiplayer.
DICE showcased the Battlefield 4 singleplayer campaign in new screenshots and a long, 17-minute gameplay video taking the player through the first missions in the game. The singleplayer showcased the new visuals in the game, powered by Frostbite 3, and showed a much more open-ended kind of gameplay compared to the campaign in BF3. Hopefully DICE will showcase the Battlefield 4 multiplayer portion before E3.
As for co-op, we’re sure most gamers won’t be too disappointed by the lack of co-op in Battlefield 4. BF3 featured co-op, which was, just as the whole singleplayer campaign, not that good. Most played the co-op because it allowed them to unlock a few weapons for use in multiplayer.
