New Battlefield 4 features revealed: VOIP, emblems, and more
With a third day of Battlefield 4 gameplay at GamesCom, DICE stopped by to reveal even more features in the game. For one, PC players will be happy to know that VOIP will be available at launch, but DICE says that they’ll be focusing on VOIP for squads first, then later on for the rest of the team.
A second cool feature is a confirmation of the rumor about emblems on weapons and vehicles. DICE has confirmed that players will be able to create their own emblems and place them on weapons and vehicles. Previously it was believed that the emblems would be from the Platoons, but now it appears that each player will be able to make their own individual emblems.
DICE also revealed that the list of Battlefield 4 grenades will be greatly expanded. Besides the usual frag, smoke, and incendiary grenades, the game will include “V-40 Mini” grenades, flashbangs, Hand flares, and Impact grenades. Overall, there will be 7 different types of grenades. BF3 only had one.
Finally, while we saw plenty of new weapons during GamesCom, DICE was quick to point out that there are even more weapons that haven’t been shown yet. Be sure to check out some gameplay videos from GamesCom as well.
