Battlefield 4 factions
Battlefield 4 factions will include at least two which have been featured in BF3: United States and Russia. In addition, Battlefield 4 features a brand new faction which was last seen in BF2: China. All three factions in the game feature their unique and authentic weapons and vehicles.
Some of the Battlefield 4 singleplayer campaign takes place in China, and promotional material has been focusing heavily on the Chinese. The addition to the Chinese faction means that for the first time in many years, there are more than 3 multiplayer factions to play as. Here’s the complete list of all the playable Battlefield 4 factions that are available in multiplayer. It’s likely that additional factions could be added in the future through expansion packs.
