With recent news and leaks of Battlefield 4 I as a fan have been very impressed with the amount of community requests that were fulfilled. I admit that they many were expected evolutions. Such as what the Dice team dubbed “leveloution”. Nice to see, was the increase in camouflages for all weapons. Although on this aspect we were completely cheated of variety in Battlefield 3. With the leaks of alternate vehicle camouflages. Many vehicle whores have to be very excited. I know I cannot wait to have slightly customized look on my tank.
So far what I have seen from Battlefield 4’s multiplayer, I cannot help be excited. Here are some features that various sources have outed from E3 game play and also BF4’s alpha testing (all are subject to change)
- ability to defend yourself while in water
- changes to suppression mechanics
How Dice could surprise the hell out of me as a fan of Battlefield, and blow away the competition are the simple/complex suggestions below.
While browsing the internet for a photographic technique I have yet to see. I ran across this awesome little modder gem. When you see the amazing pieces modders create. You almost sense they love the product more than some developers. Of course modders build off of existing code but they take on thankless job. Developers can learn a lot from these guys.

The maps that I expect to make a comeback on the Second Assault map pack.
My best guess:
Siene Crossing: This map has a lot of buildings and map elements that could be shown off in Frostbite 3. To me this combat zone has some of the better more balanced game play due to the various routes. Maybe with increased destruction we could see some better routes created through “leveloution”.
Norshal Canals: Console players missed out on the fighter jet combat on this map. So revisiting this for the console side will introduce an extra layer of combat missed by both systems. Along with increased destruction we could see the toppling of those damn snipers on the dry dock. In addition the combat boat could spice this map up seeing that there are two water routes that stretch through this Canal. Also perhaps some moving trains in the trainyard.
Operation Metro: While this map gives the thrills other fps players enjoy. If it does make a return, I hope they can add on to this map. The choke point on this map makes it a little too easy for one team to dominate the other. If this does make a return (which it will) I am pushing for a revamp and not just a rehash.
Armored Shield: Hardly ever used in this maps vast spaces is the river point. With water assault craft available we may see this map return. Also with the decreased player count on consoles and that f*cking gunship. Console player got shafted on this map and missed its beauty. Come on, Rush mode on this map the attackers beat the shit out of the defenders every time. With the addition of this map we could also see the return of Tank Superiority gamemode. (Which I hope is in the game day one)
Sabalan Pipeline: Sticking with the theme of keeping all existing game modes. This map can provide the landscape for capture the flag and air superiority modes. Also the snowy theme can show off Frostbite 3’s ability to simulate snow fall. After all if you name the game engine frostbite and it can’t deliver some good blizzard graphics then you are doing it all wrong.
