Battlefield 4 is due out next week, and I'm starting to get excited. I'm planning on skipping the campaign and jumping right into the multiplayer. Will the new single-player story trailer make me reconsider? Let's find out. Warning: there are a few F-bombs in the video.
That one dude is really intent on not leaving anyone behind. I like how he playfully tosses an apple to a little girl in one scene and, about 12 seconds later, punches a dog in the face. Only in the world of game trailers, folks.
The footage is all over the place, and I'm not getting much of a cohesive storyline. As far as I can tell, though, the single-player campaign has pretty graphics, over-the-top action, and a range of environments. There's also a dose of drama. I'm sure the blogosphere will have fun overanalyzing that dynamic.
So, yeah, I think I'll stick with the plan. Although I actually enjoyed Battlefield 3's single-player campaign, it was too formulaic, and the multiplayer was much better. I don't see anything in the latest BF4 trailer suggesting things will be different this time around.
