In spite of the many highlights and wonders this year’s E3 exhibition has delivered so far, one of the things I’ve been hoping we’d see this week is live footage of Battlefield 4‘s multiplayer running on next generation hardware. My wish was granted – correction; my wish was blown out of my cranium with the force of a C4 detonation.
Want to see why I’ll be playing Battlefield 4 over Call of Duty: Ghosts on PlayStation 4 (for this reason, in case you’re wondering)? Then click play on the embedded video below. Presenting version 3 of DICE’s Frostbite engine, the return of Battlefield 2’s Commander role, and more destruction than a day out with John McClane, this… is Siege of Shanghai.
