After official artwork for Battlefield 4 was teased by DICE, the company has now put out two separate teaser videos – ahead of the main reveal next week. With excitement and anticipation building up for Battlefield 4, despite limited information pouring out, it seems the time is almost right to open the proverbial floodgates.
The Swedish-based developer made the two videos only twenty-seconds in length, and offer a mere hint of action. Those waiting for a bigger video, though, haven’t long to wait – DICE is set to pull the curtains back with a full gameplay trailer on March 27th.
That date is two days into GDC 2013 – meaning press will get an early look at the product. But for now, gamers will have to make due with the two ‘Prepare 4 Battle’ teasers, and try and forget that play-on-words was attempted.
Without further ado, here’s the first two ‘Prepare 4 Battle’ teasers:
The game engine certainly looks great, and the notion that DICE revamped sea-based combat will have peaked curiosity from those interested in the oft-overlooked type of warfare. The game takes place in the modern timeline, which means there will be no shortage of high-tech weaponry and espionage tools for gamers to utilize during combat. Of course, we’re expecting the actual gameplay to contain about 100% less bokeh than the end of those trailers.
The series has always come highly regarded as an entertaining and team-oriented game, offering plenty of strategy to counter the usual madness of rival games like Call of Duty. With up to 64 players on consoles, Battlefield 4 will certainly be giving the Call of Duty world a run for their money. Until March 27th, however, we’ll have to wait to see what the combat actually looks like.
What do you think about the videos, Ranters?
Battlefield 4 is expected to hit shelves later this year for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, and Microsoft’s next-gen console (but maybe not the Wii U).
