Battlefield 4 singleplayer campaign details revealed

Singleplayer campaign takes place in China, Singapore, Azerbaijan, and features the usual B-move plot.

DICE has revealed a bunch of details concerning the Battlefield 4 singleplayer campaign. As we expected, the story concerns mainly China, Russians, rogue Generals, a potential world war, and many other Hollywood B-movie plot lines.

According to a new blog post from DICE, the Battlefield 4 singleplayer campaign centers around a squad of elite soldiers known as the “Tombstone squad”. Players assume the role of Sergeant Daniel Recker. One of the first missions, which we’ve seen in the footage before, follows the squad as they attempt to collect intelligence, only to be ambushed by the Chinese.

After the squad narrowly escapes to a US carrier ship, it’s attacked by the Russians (which we saw during the E3 presentation). The team is then sent out to Shanghai to extract a group of VIPs, but, surprise surprise, the Chinese are waiting in an ambush. We’re sure there are plenty of cut scenes to connect all these plot points.

The singleplayer campaign takes place mostly in the far east, as players will visit Azerbaijan, China, and Singapore. We’re sure there are even more locations, which will be revealed at a later date. Check out some of the recent screenshots from the campaign as well.

A few months ago, DICE said that they weren’t satisfied with the previous campaign found in BF3, and that they are looking to improve that with Battlefield 4. So far it’s looking good, although we think few hardcore Battlefield fans will ever touch the campaign.

DICE also released some character renders, showing the incredible details. We’re not sure if this is in-game or pre-rendered, either way, it looks impressive:

    There are quite a few mistakes made in this article, I’ll list them out in order from top to bottom:

    – A B-movie is a low-budget Hollywood film, this is not low-budget in any way.
    – The squad is ambushed by *Russians* while collecting intelligence in “Fishing in Baku”, not the Chinese, as stated above incorrectly.
    – During the E3 presentation, the carrier was attacked by the *Chinese*, not the Russians. It seems you have confused these two groups of people. Seriously, just listen for the language or even just the character models. The Russian and Chinese languages are PRETTY DISTINCT.
    – Who said anything about an ambush during the extracting VIPs portion? Sure there will be enemies to engage, that’s what composes 100% of the game (engaging enemy combatants), but there is no need for assumptions that almost seem to show a hint of negligence.

    That’s about it, but on a side note:
    – “Hardcore” players are those who play every aspect of the game, and respect it, INCLUDING the campaign portion.

    This article was poorly written, as were others in the past. It is almost like it takes a stance. That is not what BF4Central should be about, or its former BF3Blog. Please, just give us the information without sugarcoating it with your personal opinions on matters such as campaign or what deems a player “hardcore” or not. Thank you.

      You’re correct. Since they made the article comparing Battlefield fans to COD fans, they’ve lacked interesting and correct articles.

      Very well said, I was going to point these errors out but you beat me to it.

      So “Fishing in Baku” takes place at the beginning; “While on a mission to collect intelligence from a defecting Russian General in Baku, Azerbaijan, your squad is discovered and you must fight your way through waves of Russian troops in order to escape”.

      “Angry Sea” takes place at the end of the synopsis; “With communications dead, the Valkyrie sets course for Singapore to rendezvous with the USS Titan and the 7th US carrier group at their last known position. As you reach Singapore you are shocked to find a horrific scene of fire and mayhem. The flagship is sunk and its fleet is eradicated, and from this point on nothing is certain.”

      PS: does anyone know why the vehicle, weapons, etc. sections are all false on this site? It simply lists the content from Battlefield 3. For example they list the 5 jets from Battlefield 3 saying they are in Battlefield 4. We have no clue as to what jets are pilotable in Battlefield 4 at the moment.

        @BlindSpider11: I suppose the sections with the false/speculated info are just placeholders until real info is released.

      Couldn’t agree more, especially the part about Hardcore players playing every aspect of the game.

      I’ve played every Battlefield game and expansion on both PC and console (I’d say that makes me a “hardcore fan” and I always play the campaign first (when there is one available) before playing multiplayer.

      False. It will be USA vs. China and Russia. In the synopsis it says; and I quote “The Chinese Admiral Chang is planning a coup in China, and if this happens, the Russians would back him up.”
