Battlefield 4 made an appearance at this year's gamescom press conference from EA, naturally. No groundbreaking revelations about the game, unfortunately, but a couple of interesting tidbits. First, we'll be getting a Battlefield 4 beta in October prior to the game's October 29 release date. Lastly, several small details about how multiplayer maps will feature dynamic events, both small and large, some interactable and some not.
To show off what EA meant regarding dynamic events in multiplayer, they unveiled a couple of trailers during the show. Unfortunately, I don't think the trailer we have is what they showed, but it does do the same job. This is "Paracel Storm," which is a tropical island map that can switch between standard weather and stormy weather. As you'll see, it also includes several smaller dynamic events, like bridges and buildings being destroyed. Bigger changes include huge waves, wind turbine destruction, and a giant battleship running ashore.
For a map designed to hold 64 people all running at 60FPS, Battlefield 4's Paracel Storm map doesn't look half bad. Expect more information on the Battlefield 4 beta as we approach October, along with platform details. And hopefully we'll have another trailer or two to add into this post later today. Battlefield 4 launches on October 29 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, with next-gen platforms coming afterwards.
