Battlefield 4 singleplayer campaign details revealed
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:
