64 Reasons to Play Battlefield 4

We here at DICE cannot wait until the launch of the next-generation of console gaming. The power of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 allows us to deliver the best Battlefield experience on a console ever.

As we prepare for battle on next-gen, over the coming week we will be sharing with you 64 reasons why Battlefield 4 will be the premiere shooter on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this holiday and beyond. Check back here daily for more reasons on this list. We look forward to seeing you on the next-gen Battlefield!

Part 9

So here we are, the final installment in our 64 Reasons to Play Battlefield 4 blog series. As you choke back the tears remember one thing, when one door closes, another opens. That door is the next-generation of console gaming.  Today, Sony’s PlayStation 4 launched in North America, and next week Microsoft’s Xbox One will be available in 13 countries worldwide. Both of these platforms will deliver amazing entertainment experiences for years to come, and though there are differences between them they both share at least one thing: the all-out-chaos of Battlefield 4 multiplayer complete with 64 players and running at 60 fps. So sit back, enjoy the final 64 Reasons blog post (#64 is our favorite by the way) and we’ll see you on the next-generation battlefield!


Zavod 311

Codenamed “Abandoned” during development, Zavod 311 is set at a deserted Russian tank factory. When you’re not busy admiring the map’s autumn foliage, you’ll be fighting at key areas such as a Bunker, the Living Quarters, Train Tracks and the Radar Tower. Any Levolution in this one? You bet! Initiate the timer in the Manufacturing building to blow up a warhead, which sends a big chimney crashing to the ground, opening up new paths. More BF4 maps. 

play your strenghts

Play Your Strengths

No, you don’t have to be a trigger-happy killing machine to enjoy Battlefield 4 – although that is a perfectly valid option. Maybe you prefer playing as Commander, fixing up your team mates’ vehicles as Engineer, or spotting enemies from a distance. No matter what kind of player you are, there is a place for you on the Battlefield.

squad deathmatch

Squad Deathmatch

See yourself as a good team player? Have a stab at Squad Deathmatch, where four squads hunt a preset number of kills. Team work, knowledge of the map, and having a well-balanced, skilled squad is essential to be victorious in this mode. More on BF4 game modes.

We can’t blame you: the music of Battlefield 4 is a big part of the experience. Stay tuned for a meaty post here on the Battlefield Blog where our composers tell you about their creative work.

Part 8


The Support

The Support class is in many ways the backbone of the Battlefield, laying down suppressive fire with mighty LMGs and supplying team mates with ammo. Playing as Support, you can access devastating hi-tech hardware like Claymores and Mortars. Keep those experience points ticking in – and you’ll also get access to the coveted C4 Explosives.

Commander Mode

Commander Mode

Ready to take command? Commander Mode gives you a top-down perspective of the Battlefield, allowing you to deliver critical intelligence, manage support activity, and deploy powerful war assets during the matches.

You can take Battlefield 4 with you wherever you go. Try out the Commander Mode App for your tablet! More on Commander Mode here.

Rogue Transmission

Rogue Transmission

Based around a humongous observatory dish, Rogue Transmission features both vehicle and infantry combat areas with plenty of jet and helicopter action, to boot. Awesome tip #1: Try speeding around in mad circles with a quad bike on the dish, capturing the control point in the cockiest way possible. Awesome tip #2: Do this before Levolution is triggered and the massive radio telescope crashes down on you. More BF4 maps. 

Take to the Skies

Master the Skies

They look like ants from up there, don’t they! With all the varieties of jets and helicopters, Battlefield 4 lets you realize your life-long dreams of air superiority. Use your miniguns and missiles against enemy targets or give team members a ride in the roomy transport helis. If you find yourself constantly crashing your attack jets into perfectly innocent pine trees, go practice your flying skills in the all-new Test Range.

Lancang Dam

Lancang Dam

The multifaceted Lancang Dam lets you battle it out on land, air, and sea, granting you many different tactical approaches. Overlooking the riverside lies the map’s iconic dam, and if you keep pounding it with missiles and rockets you will trigger the Levolution moment where the dam collapses, causing a deadly concrete rain and altered battle conditions. Make sure to master the nooks and crannies of key areas like the research building and power station. More BF4 maps.

Ranking Up

Climbing the Ranks

As you know, a journey of a thousand miles (to rank 100!) begins with a single step (playing as Private First Class!) All your various efforts on the Battlefield generate experience points, which in turn lets you rank up. The feeling of ranking up is addictive and before you know it, you’ll find yourself high up on the Battlefield 4 ladder – with a lot of unlocks to boast.

More BF4 maps. 


The Assault

When it comes to the Assault class, there are two sides of the same coin. On one hand, you will see the Assault dishing out deadly firepower on the frontlines. On the other hand, the Assault will show its gentler side when reviving team mates with its defibrillator and handing out medpacks.

Tons of Customizable Weapons

Battlefield 4 features more weapons than ever before, and there is a whole world of assault rifles, PDWs, LMGs, sniper rifles, carbines, DMRs, shotguns, and pistols out there waiting for you to unlock and customize. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself spending hours on browsing for the most fitting weapon – and on customizing them with various attachments and paints. More on weapon customization. 


Dog Tag Hunt

It really is a special feeling, that blend of smugness and excitement. Sneaking up on an unsuspecting enemy, stealing his or her dog tags with a melee attack, and then riding off into the sunset, is one of those small-but-still-great reasons to play Battlefield 4. (The feeling when someone does this to you is actually also great – in its own, interesting way.)

Team Deathmatch

Team Deathmatch

The simple joy of throwing yourself into a game of Team Deathmatch is hard to top. The setup is simple and the action is intense: two teams face off in combat, with the first team to reach a preset number of kills emerging victorious. Team up with a friend and let people know you’re in town. More on BF4 game modes. 

Part 5

Hundreds of Rewards

Hundreds of Rewards

Dedicated Battlefield 4 players will be handsomely rewarded. That’s why there are hundreds of different ribbons and medals to earn for those who excel in different fields – anything from delivering bombs in Obliteration to being an excellent spotter of enemies. If you show extra dedication, you might even receive one of the sought-after Service Stars. More on awards.

Levolution: Small and Big

From the tropical storm of Paracel Storm to Zavod 311’s collapsing chimney, Battlefield 4’s Levolution moments are visually stunning game-changers. As epic as devastating floods and collapsing skyscrapers are though, they are not the only example of Levolution in Battlefield 4. Raise bollards and enjoy the road rage of enemy tank drivers. Close shutters in a mall for extra protection. Or cause mischief by locking up your foe with a hand grenade in a train cart.



Strong nerves. Sharp reflexes. And a firm grip on your controller. Have you got what it takes for Defuse? In this highly competitive game mode, each player is given one single life per round, and the objective is to eliminate the enemy squad or detonate the other team’s military installation. More on BF4 game modes. 



You are battling at the break of dawn, and there is action around every corner. Snipers will sneak around the rooftops, the streets will be crawling with enemy artillery, as hostile jets are roaring by, lit by the neon skyline. The atmospheric Dawnbreaker map features both indoor and outdoor battles in an urban environment, and there’s always a new route to explore. More BF4 maps. 

64-man Base Jump



The new and improved Battlelog is your online Battlefield 4 home. Here, you can launch the game, tinker with your loadout, track your progression, design emblems, see what rank your friends have reached (they’re not higher than you, right?)  If you’ve received a yummy Gold Battlepack or made a new friend, Battlelog lets you share your activity on your Battle Feed.

Part 4

operation locker

Operation Locker

With Operation Locker you can expect intense, close-quarter infantry combat in a mountain prison environment. Make sure to experiment with the prison doors to trap enemies – an extra devious action if you also blow up the nearby tower. Operation Locker features both indoor and outdoor environments, with the snowstorm outside dynamically intensify as the battle rages on. More BF4 maps. 

Spectator Mode

When you just want to kick back and watch the glory of all-out war without participating, Spectator Mode is the ticket. Spectator Mode enables you to view the multiplayer mayhem in many different views and toggling between players is as easy as pie. If you’re in to making your own Battlefield videos, this feature is ideal for getting an overview and setting up dramatic camera angles. Learn more in this post.


The fast-paced sibling of Conquest, Domination is an intense game mode where it’s all about the infantry. Make sure to be on your toes while capturing flags as your enemies are never too far away. More on BF4 game modes.

Field Upgrades

Field Upgrades

Battlefield is all out team play and we want to make sure you’re rewarded accordingly. Helping your squad means your Field Upgrade meter will go up, granting you a number of different gameplay advantages. For example, with the fan-conceived Field Upgrade “Shadow”, your sprint speed, and height you can fall without damage, can be increased – among other things.

Flood Zone

We all know it: When the levee breaks, you got to move. Set in a Chinese town in the direct vicinity of a large levee, Flood Zone is a versatile Battlefield 4 map that supports a variety of multiplayer tactics. If the levee is destroyed, the map will get flooded and the fight continues on the rooftops above. More BF4 maps. 

Only in Battlefield 4 Moments

Thanks to the unscripted nature of Battlefield 4, every player will experience moments that are truly unique. At various gaming events, we’ve grabbed players after their first taste of Battlefield 4, and asked for their all-out war impressions. The results speak for themselves. Real players, real gameplay. 

Part 3

paracel storm

Paracel Storm

Already a Battlefield classic, Paracel Storm throws you into battle on a series of seemingly idyllic islands on the South China Sea. Dynamic weather soon turns the tide of battle, and huge waves will provide new challenges for your naval units. Adapt to the changing Battlefield, watch out for a Destroyer on the loose – and don’t forget to bring a beach towel.

Competitive Gaming

When you’re ready to show the world who’s the Battlefield top dog, you’ll be glad to find that Battlefield 4 is built with competitive gaming in mind. Game modes like Defuse and Domination require you to constantly be on your toes, and the new and powerful Spectator Mode is ideal for elite competitions and live streams. More on competitive gaming.

The Recon

Sizing up your enemy from a thousand yards away and delivering that single kill shot that helps lead your team to victory- that’s what the Recon class is all about. Excel in spotting and taking out enemies from a distance. Recon can also provide crucial intel to the team by deploying motion sensors and other hi-tech gadgets.


Whether you’re Attacking or Defending, the asymmetrical game mode Rush is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. The attacking team must arm and destroy MCOM stations in each zone of the map, and the defending team must stop this from happening before they run out of respawns. Different environments require you to reconsider your tactics and your loadout. More on BF4 game modes.


All the Gadgets

Mastering the many types of hi-tech hardware Battlefield 4 has to offer is a great way to ensure success on the Battlefield. Use the defibrillator to revive fallen comrades, throw a flashbang to confuse your enemies, or secure information on enemy movement thanks to the motion sensor. There are tons of other gadgets to tinker with, so make sure to explore them all.

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike

Experience even more epic naval combat as the Chinese Armada take the fight to the high seas in Battlefield 4 Naval Strike digital expansion pack coming Spring 2014.

Part 2

Second Assault Key Art

Battlefield 4 Second Assault

The upcoming Battlefield 4 Second Assault expansion pack coming first to Xbox One includes four fan-favorite maps from Battlefield 3 pushed to their limits with the power of Frostbite 3. Return to post-nuclear Paris two years later in Operation Metro 2014, featuring flooded subway tunnels and destructible ceilings. The walls of Caspian Border 2014 have been fortified with new vantage points, and players can now bring down its central communications tower. Operation Firestorm 2014 truly lives up to its name – the refinery’s pipelines can be breached to create flammable hazards across the map. Stay sharp as a sand storm rolls through Gulf of Oman 2014. Second Assault also equips players with five new weapons, an all-new vehicle, ten assignments, and the Capture the Flag game mode.


Conquest is the signature Battlefield game mode that features all-out-warfare on land, air and sea and rewards players for solid team play, tactical skills and quick reflexes. In Conquest, you need to capture and hold bases on the maps. The more flags your team holds, the faster the enemies’ tickets will decrease. Win by reducing the enemy ticket count to zero. More on BF4 game modes.

Siege of Shanghai

Siege of Shanghai

This is intense urban warfare amongst the skyscrapers in downtown Shanghai. With a skyscraper that can be completely demolished to alter the map (LEVOLUTION!), Siege of Shanghai also adds a vertical element to the multiplayer experience. Be sure to lookout for falling glass!

Epic Parachute Sniping

Have you ever thrown yourself out of a building, defying gravity as you plummet to the ground below only to deploy your parachute moments before and pulling out your sniper rifle to land a million-in-one shot? If not, you need to play more Battlefield 4. 

The Engineer

A vehicle’s best friend – or worst enemy? Playing as an Engineer in Battlefield 4 means you’re taking down enemy choppers with RPGs or destroying tanks with land mines. But it also means you’re fixing up your team’s vehicles with the trusted repair tool. The Engineer also has access to gadgets like the EOD Bot and the M15 AT Mine.

hold all these battlepacks


Battlepacks are like birthday presents on the battlefield. These bundles of joy come in bronze, silver and gold and contain anything from Weapon Accessories to XP Boosts.

You Can Point at Many Things

There is a lot to point at in Battlefield 4. Actually, this is called spotting and is a vital teamplay tactic, but JackFrags, one of many Battlefield YouTubers, got inspired to write a song about all the things he’s pointed at in-game. You should listen to it.

Test Range

Practice makes perfect. Newcomers to Battlefield, or pros who want to perfect their skills, can visit the non-hostile Test Range. Here, you can to test your wings in an attack helicopter or snipe wooden targets or barrels thrown in the air.



I’ve got the bomb! Quick, get to da choppa! DO IT, DO IT NOW! In the frantic Obliteration, you are likely to both shout and hear things like these often. This explosive game mode sees two teams fighting for control over a bomb that must be detonated in the opposing team’s targets.

Remember to pimp your ride through Battlefield 4’s vast customization possibilities.

  • AL2RIDE 12.15.13 at 14:08

    Ah, now I know where they came up with the number 64. It’s the crash to play ratio. You get to play an entire match for every 64 crashes. Now things are starting to make sense.

  • Neoluddite 12.01.13 at 22:57

    Can we think of 64 reasons to fix this game so it doesn’t crash every 10 minutes or drop you from servers?

  • CHIK CHACK 11.21.13 at 13:12

    Love Battlefield, been playing BF3 every night for well over a year. I had hoped the BF4 Beta fixed a lot of the gripes I had with it but I have to say I think releasing on XboxOne and PS4 stretched resources at DICE because the quality and functionality are extremely disappointing. Would love to see soldier customization brought back to main screen but above all the game needs fixing on current gen. Don’t turn your back on the biggest demographic you have for the minority of next gen.

  • JIMMYHARDWOOD 11.20.13 at 15:23

    I love battlefield but Please help , every time I download the update and click on install, it will repeat saying install , help us oout with an update, if anyone knows how to fix it please let me know

  • Z71Silverado 11.19.13 at 03:11

    Two reasons to not play BF4: I can’t view or customize load outs outside of battlelog. Bring it back to the main screen. Remember BF3? Please make it possible to create squads BEFORE joining a game. The point of Battlefield is team play. Don’t make it harder for that to happen.

    Ending on a happy note, it’s a great game.

  • IsEdeDPeoPLE12 11.13.13 at 01:40

    graphic rendering,”leveloutin”,lag,invisible weapons,glitching,my solider customization…as its being said…just fix or patch or whatever…just bring out the potential of the game as it should…the 360 and ps3 are superb consoles…im sure there will be set backs but im also sure that bf4 can perform better than 3

  • IsEdeDPeoPLE12 11.13.13 at 01:32

    i agree with everyone else…#xbox360…too many issues and problems. snipers are the most used and preferred class now. why have you not started work on an update. i know from playing bf3 for a while that it had like 6 multiplayer updates whereas there isn’t one for bf4. i understand that its a new game and that DICE (in my opinion) is focusing every effort on the xbox one but come on…just because a new console is coming out doesn’t mean you have to make a shitty version on a different console. yeah the xbox one and ps4 is gonna be awesome and amazing and all that jazz but people have been waiting for the next bf for a while and expect it to be similar as is its predecessor(s). please update bf4…any and all issues please fix…

  • AmatorDeNex 11.12.13 at 17:25

    Will somebody PLEASE tell me why I can’t customize my loadout in the main menu of Battlefield 4?…. I can only do it while I’m in a game or in a test range…it’s really stupid and time consuming…. As a Battlefield fan, I’m really disappointed… Especially when you unlock a bunch of new weapons

  • jamieson898 11.12.13 at 16:57

    OMFG BEST GAME EVER, the best (and also worst) thing about it, is that it has attracted LOADS of CoD fans which I find to be a bunch of faggots that cry about controls and are scared of big maps. CoD fans have never seen a tank, a Z-W11, an Attack Heli, a jeep, a dirt bike, a stealth jet, a quad bike, a fighter jet, a rush jet, a gunship, even the diggers from BF3. Tell CoD fans to go away or just kill them easily cause they have never seen anything called RECOIL before so they then complain about that. Seriously ‘do….BEAST GAME

    • Stalin03 11.12.13 at 19:08

      Definitely a very valid point.

  • Tonyukukk 11.12.13 at 16:17

    Quite difficult to get used to huge open spaces in multiplayer after having played MOH Warfighter (just comparing the spaces). But BF4 is a total different experience requires therefore a different approach to playing style. Although there are some bugs I believe that Dice will solve it. Momentarily I am trying to get used to this whole new concept of hugeness, change of environments, use of different tactical approaches to accomplish tasks. I must admit that I get killed quite often during this process…..

    • Stalin03 11.12.13 at 16:23

      You speak of a learning curve many will face especially if they are used to other games where its not the same. I’ve been used to this play style since BF 1942 So luckily I’m used to it, and I love it, I wouldn’t wan’t my BF any other way, this is why I had a slight issues with BF3, the maps were too small, its nice to see BF4 becoming more true to its BF name. It’s a good thing. GL learning, and I assure you it will be worth it.

  • Stalin03 11.12.13 at 16:07

    Hi, I’ve played BF games since 1942. I can assure you everyone here who is bitching about “FIX THE GAME!” “NET CODE!!!!!” or the worst ” Controls suck for my Console!” This is what DICE gets for making a game that unfortunately has attracted A LOT of Call of Duty fans, they think its okay to act like a neanderthal here and its NOT. Period.

    The game is absolutely mind blowing, I’ve never seen anything like it. The gaming world is entering the future and this game is the first to place us there. It runs AMAZING on my mid-range card, enough to get steady 90 FPS on high with ultra textures, on just a 7850. So there is no argument about optimization, it its perfectly optimized, game runs better than BF3 on low compared to its high setting ffs. Bugs, Lets include server crashes, that was the worst, and guess what. ITS FIXED, as of R5 servers have stopped crashing, so the “worst” that they all complained about ( even me ) has been fixed. the ONLY bug now, is the sound bug which I suspect will be fixed in a few days as DICE has acknowledged it and has a client update being made. After that’s fixed, the game will be perfectly playable, you will have no sound issue, won’t crash, free to play as you like. Besides unknown bugs possible still in the game, after sound is fixed, BF4 is “Bug free”

    Time for the zombies, they don’t understand what a “netcode” is, if they did they would be in owe of how much better it is in BF4 than 3, 3 from BC2. etc etc. A Network code is not something in a game that can just be “fixed” even if there was something wrong. They Comment and fantasize about an instance where they lagged and claim they had “10” ping the whole time, and that their internet is perfect etc, they get shot in the face, when they leave cover and fantasize they were “10 ft behind it” My response, If they actually did experience anything close to what they claim, then they MUST have gotten a serious lag spike or more likely, made up the entire scenario and feel justified because a bunch of other fools do the same eventually these people believe their own lies..

    To the people on Consoles, I really, Really, want to go on about how stupid you are, but I’ll be simple.
    Reconfigure your own settings!!!!!!!!!! ( seriously, your lucky I didn’t go on a ranting tirade )

    So for anyone who doesn’t have the game or to the foolish who claim ” They are returning it and getting COD ” Look, If you Don’t get/play this game because you fool your self about “bugs” than I honestly feel bad for your brain, you are making an incredibly foolish mistake, the game is a serious mind blowing experience. I would pay 200$ for the thing ( DON’T GET ANY IDEAS EA! )

    As a BF fan, I can’t understand how the majority of comments here are from zombie sheep complaining about nothing, I know the people in game are very, very happy with the game. Its just the “new” people from COD I guess, its best to ignore them. seriously.

  • Kill_II_This 11.12.13 at 14:18

    As a customer I have the right, the obligation to inform every futur client that the game is now really in a bad state. Collision bug, crashes, bad synchronisation between players and so one.
    I have experienced 20 years of pc gaming and have played all pc battlefield games except 2142. Battlefield 3 was a shame and battelfield 4 is more than that.

    Electronic Arts is insulting customers and this is the least I can say.


    • Stalin03 11.12.13 at 16:18

      coming from a guy who devoted his profile picture to “FIX BF3”..

    1 reason to not play bf4. The game has so many bugs that you can make a long book

    I wish the Commander mode would be a little bit more enhanced. Instead of just promoting squads Commander should also have the possibility to reprimand squads. Also, I’ve been playing Commander a few times, and squads asked me to drop certain vehicles on vehicle drop. Maybe there should be the option to select a boat or tank.

    I really wish I could turn off the battlelog/select button. Also, having the mark target button on R1 makes me take my finger off the trigger to mark a target (not good). Changing the enter/exit button from B to X was dumb. Either way the biggest problem I see also is that you can’t knife while in the air. No more jumping through a window while breaking it in the air*** Come on… One more thing, You can’t jump sideways over even a door threshold or small rock. This causes you to get hung up and is really annoying. Pressing right while against a small object and hitting jump should jump you over that object, but nope you have to be facing it… Also is this game even HD? It looks bad next to BF3. I guess I will go back to playing BF3 until you fix these major issues… I would hope it would have been smooth out of the box, but its not. Also, If I set the game save to cloud, it freezes up my system every time. Being as I have done every update and am using a brand new Xbox from Best Buy, I wouldn’t have thought this would have happened…

    Bf4 is a let down, it’s not a horrible game. It’s freaking battlefield. It still rocks. Just on the current gens we all feel it’s a step back on several fronts. Some of these guys are a little rude but hey, this is a battlefield. Listen to these guys. We love this franchise.

    • Stalin03 11.12.13 at 16:16

      “BF4 is a let down” That’s BS, its better than 3 in every way and makes a big leap for the entire Battlefield name. I just don’t see the value in the first part of your comment, because it has no legitimate foundation. Its an AMAZING fucking game.. WAYY better than BF3, I might add. BF4 is more of BF2 mixed with BC2, its what us BF fans always wanted.

    Haven’t been in the Forums in a while.
    I have posted in the other thread, but need to restate it here.
    DICE has Pissed-Off the PS3 community with their idiotic console controller layouts.

    Please get rid of the UN-needed Command Console
    Please bring back the default BF3 controller layouts.

    What DICE claims to have a layout that is similar to the BF3 layout, is like saying a Volkswagen is similar to a BMW. They are nothing like each other.

    I might get banned, but hell, I am not playing the game anyways in its current form, so here it goes; Every single PS3 layout for BF4 SUCKS!!
    I can not express enough the amount of Suckage that these layouts sucks. There is yet to be invented an accurate unit of measure that can numerate the amount of vacuum created by the suckage of the PS3 controller layouts.

    Come on! Do your fans a favor and do something about the controller layouts.

    After all my complaints I do want to say thank you for cleaning up your mess DICE. Please, please, please, don’t release something like that again. I will never buy another product from you all again if you do… Not that my single sale will make a dent in your million dollar industry lol.

  • Indignant Yeti 11.10.13 at 03:03

    Here’s a couple of things I’d like to see: 1) don’t let people parachute off a two story building to prevent fall damage, It’s stupid and one of the most unrealistic things in the game. 2) Make helicopters vulnerable to small arms fire. Real helicopters are delicate machines. 3) A fix to the sniper and shotgun with slugs sound. If someone is two feet away shooting at you with a .50 or shotty with slugs you should here more than a zing.

  • xXJimi08Xx 11.10.13 at 01:44

    Game works great for me,and i can run it on medium only,the biggest problem is my stupid internet and origin crash sometimes,but thats not game problem.

  • ShaneSkyz 11.08.13 at 16:33

    For Battlefield players, a lot of you are some whining ass kids.
    Just because a good player kills you numerous times with something doesn’t make it OP
    Just because you have personal issues doesn’t make the game broken.
    Just because a game doesn’t come out perfect at launch doesn’t make it a horrible game.
    For christ sake people. Grow up and realize DICE is working to fix you petty problems.

      Thanks for posting this!

    • HenTyH 11.08.13 at 19:06

      You just a kid. You even didn’t have a job, so you can’t adequately understand what it costs. Some of us have only hour or less to play in a game and of course we not pretend on PRO section of a game. Playing just for fun with friends.

    • Cookface00 11.10.13 at 05:32

      The game is broken and it was far from perfect at launch. A few bugs, I can deal with that but when you cant even play a match without the game crashing, that’s another story. And the fact that you are saying people are having personal problems because they say the game is broken makes no sense. And before you say “well you shouldn’t bought the game I say to you that when DICE fixes the crashes I will be happy but until then I must say I’m dissapointed.

    • Usanity 11.10.13 at 07:34

      A game that crashes 5 times in 15 minutes is broken. My “petty” problem is that i spent 50€ on a game that makes me go fucking crazy when i think about it.


    • MoH3AD 11.10.13 at 21:13

      Wtf are you rambling about? The game is amazingly fun and I love BF franchise period. But the game is messed up and shouldnt have been released like it was, period. You have to admit that at least.

  • HenTyH 11.08.13 at 10:57

    It will be reason to play…in new year, but now BF4 is like a mirrored shiny skyscraper built on a swamp instead of a solid foundation. Preordered BF4 in march, premium in august. Participated in alfa and beta testings. And as a result I get disappointment only for 110$ :(
    Understanding fight vs CoD:Dogs and leak of QA. Ohhh…that netcode again, gained from me a lot of nerves.
    I need a cookies for patience. Only hope AN-94 in Second Assault and something tasty can make me happy back.
    Nevertheless, go on DICE, work hard, I beleive in your team.

  • bexonmx 11.08.13 at 06:36

    This is the worst experience ever. Snipers are so dominant, even comparing to grenade. Errors in game everywhere, more errors in game comparing to entire Microsoft Corporation.
    Wasted 60$, never again EA Games. Thanks.

    • MoH3AD 11.10.13 at 21:18

      I think sniping is better. Though a lot of people are doing it. They should maybe make it a littler harder to snipe with some more weapon sway looking down sites? Only thing that bugs me is my hits not counting when I know damn well I am hitting people dead on…

  • Thytty 11.08.13 at 02:19

    Simplesmente fantástico 10/10 :)

  • Nat4991 11.08.13 at 00:46

    Well my copy for the 360 still hasn’t come, if you’re in the UK, stay WELL away from Game.co.uk!!!!!!

    • icecreamguy 11.08.13 at 01:01

      Had no issue picking up 360 and PC version from the store.

  • TheDustfinger 11.07.13 at 23:38

    One of the reasons will be kinect head tracking for me, finally you can have freelook while maintaining control over your aircraft.

  • DHG Chronis 11.07.13 at 23:13

    Buggy game, but it is so much fun i can forgive it for now.
