EA releases Battlefield 4 gameplay video

Highly anticipated shooter gets revealed in a comprehensive gameplay video

EA has a released a comprehensive video showcasing the gameplay of its latest war shooter, Battlefield 4.

The 17 minute gameplay demo depicts the player, Recker, opening his eyes to discover that he is trapped in a rapidly sinking car with three of his squad mates.

Shooting the window is the only way to escape and recover the intel, but if Recker does there is the risk that not everyone will survive.

EA Games Label executive vice president, Patrick Soderlund, said the demo was “just the beginning” and the publisher has “so much more in store.”

“To be this early in development, and to already be so polished is a huge achievement for the DICE team and reflection of their passion and commitment to driving the franchise forward,” he said.

Soderlund adds it was “thrilling” to see peoples’ reaction when they came into contact with the game for the first time.

“It really makes you realize that we are at the beginning of a whole new era for gaming,” he said.

“As artists and craftspeople, we are focused on creating a dynamic, open design that brings people together with amazing, surprising unscripted moments that they’ll talk about for days.”

Pegged for a spring 2013, Battlefield 4 is developed by DICE using the proprietary Frostbite 3 engine.

The single player aspect of the game will allow players to experience large environments, access to numerous vehicles and the ability to direct squad mates.

Borrowing from the social aspect of multiplayer gaming, the single player mode will now also track players’ progress.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
