There were s'plosions.

Uh, might want to mention that this is multiplayer in that description. Pretty big deal for some of us.

Also, it looks like Battlefield. Duh.

Things blow up!

That tank trap was neat. Also, HOLY SHIT THE SKYSCRAPER!

finally multiplayer gameplay. Looks solid. Probably gonna have to buy this.

Besides the cool displays of strategic environmental destruction and deeper commander roles, the fact that there will be skirmish maps in China (like Shanghai here) is enough to warrant me to blow $60 and deal with Origin. I really hope there will be a nighttime version of this map, since Shanghai is beautiful at night.

First ever functional lift in a multiplayer first person shooter?

The SP demo they showed during Microsoft's conference did nothing for me but man that MP looks pretty fucking fun.

Hah. I can see CCTV now - "American War Mongers training people to invade China!"

Yeah - CCTV is essentially China's version of Fox News, except 10 times worse. Unlike Fox News they don't even try to pretend their not completely biased.

EDIT: Also, as good as this game looks, this footage is totally staged. I'm not saying that you don't get stuff like this in Battlefield, you do, but this - this is staged stuff.

I am genuinely excited for Battlefield 4 now. The amount of destruction in this was enough to make me have to change underwear...twice.

I'm ready!

Damn every time I swear off EA and shooters, I see Battlefield and I jump right on the hype train.

Nightfire or something like that in Counter Strike had an elevator. It was really silly and unnecessary, but it works. Also it's a user made map.

Wait how do you capture the flag if there's no more building?

@kirkyx: I remember putting pipe bombs in an elevator to surprise people in Duke Nukem 3D multiplayer, so nope! :)

That BRAND NEW commander feature look awesome! And now the squad count is 5! Whoa! No other Battlefiend game had squads that big! I hope this doesn't have VOIP either, just like BF3! And that map looks really nice and small. Lovin it! Cant wait for the Back To Metro DLC.

God damn, I hope this runs well on Xbox One.

Leveloution.

I might as well call my PS4 my "Battlefield 4 box."

Hey, Dice -- until you fix your fragmentation with half a dozen "variations" of the game, the Premium bullshit, the completely unpleasant selection of almost all shitty servers and lack of "community" on the servers (you don't really offer a way to make each server feel unique and like it's own little home) and until I can find a ton of awesome games going on that are filled with players, but not full of stupid rules (why would I want to play CQ-only BF3 on tiny maps with half the weapons removed?) -- I don't really give a shit about any future iteration. Make it feel like a fun community again and less complicated and sterile. I spent hundreds on this game for myself and my brother and, combined, we have probably played it less than 100 hours. By this point in BF2, we'd each logged thousands of hours.

In Battlefield 6 they're just going to BLOW UP THE WORLD at this rate.

Commanders BETTER not be a tablet-only feature. If so, that's as dumb as tacked-on motion controls.

Also not enough insane sprinting and too much blindfiring at each other until someone falls over.

I dug it

Edited by chilipeppersman

awesome! I just wish it wasnt played on PC, and on an actual console.......

Having been to Shanghai many times, I say its about time someone really took advantage of the amazing (on the surface) environment/landscape/skyline of that city.

Posted by Jackel2072

So far this E3 has more then made up for the lackluster that was last year! also caution watch out for falling skyscrapers!

Posted by MeatSim

What happens to the control point that was in that Skyscraper the collapsed?

Edited by genpatton7

@meatsim: You can see in the video that it turns grey and then disappears after the building collapses. I'm curious exactly what it takes to trigger the collapse.

Posted by Schlookum

MAn This is the second thing that got me PSYCHED! This looks dope as fuck!

Posted by bslayer

looks pretty cool. especially if building leveling is in multiplayer.

Posted by masterfaculty

I have to say, that looks pretty nice. Hopefully they'll deliver the goods :)

Edited by sublime90

guys the building is going DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edited by sandworms

It'd be impressive if you could take down any and all buildings, but it looks like it's just that one. So, nbd right?

Posted by kittenmittns

My god, the amount of times I would of died... also my squad would of been spread to all corners of the map. It looks great though, glad to see commander back

Posted by HurricaneIvan29

Anyone catch the progressive perks above the squad list?

Edited by Spitznock

Have they said whether the console versions would have the full 64 player count? If not then nooooo thanks.

@csl316: Damn it why did I click that... now the whole game is ruined for me. -shakes fist at screen-

Edited by M0rblD

Give us back the original battlefield theme song :(

BF 1942

BF 1943 -- probably the best version

IGN said that the building collapse is triggered when players do enough damage to the building's load-bearing pillars on the ground level. You can read more here: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/06/12/e3-2013-battlefield-4-commanding-armies-and-toppling-skyscrapers

@spitznock: IGN confirmed in the link above that next gen consoles will support 64 players in multiplayer.

Thats was I was wondering ... Is this some kind of endgame thing that happens only when one team is close to winning? Or is killing a spawnpoint a valid strategy?

Why would you take an elevator?

True - nobody was randomly crashing jets and/or helicopters into buildings.

@kirkyx: Havana hotel map in blops 1 had an elevator. it was pretty cool.
