New Battlefield 4 rumors suggest “BattlePacks”, “dynamic battlefields”
The latest round of Battlefield 4 rumors suggest brand new features in the game. According to an EA survey description of Battlefield 4 (a survey which has been taken down), the game will be featuring more weapons, vehicles, and classes compared to BF3. A few weeks ago, another Battlefield 4 survey hinted at BF3 map remakes for the new game, and even a Dino mode.
In addition, there will be something called “BattlePacks”, which are awarded to players as they play. BattlePacks include new weapons, accessories, player skins, and more. If true, we imagine EA will be selling these BattlePacks as DLC as well.
The survey also mentions more destructible environments and “dynamic battlefields”. An example describes how players can “destroy a dam and flood an entire area”, or “cut the power to a building for a surprise attack on the enemy”. Of course, these features could be part of the singleplayer campaign.
There’s also mention how the new Frostbite 3 game engine will make Battlefield 4 “the most detailed and realistic” game in the series.
Finally, the survey mentions Battlefield 4 naval warfare, which we have heard a lot about ever since the first teaser was revealed. According to the description, there will be jet skis, RHIB boats, amphibious vehicles, and more.
The EA survey has since been taken down — we’re trying to verify this information.
