EA and Dice have shared a few details of the story behind Battlefield 4′s single-player campaign. You are cast in the role of Sergeant Daniel Recker, a member of an elite group called Tombstone squad. Tombstone is on a mission to liaise with a defecting Russian general in Azerbaijan when they are caught and forced to fight their way out from a Russian assault.
The information so hard-fought confirms Russia has indicated support for a coup in China led by one General Chang, so Tombstone is dispatched to Shanghai to secure a couple of V.I.P.s. The situation is complicated by suspicion that the US was involved in a recent assassination, resulting in a declaration of martial law.
Having secured their targets in the midst of rioting and escalating tension, Tombstone rescues as many civilians as possible before setting off with dead comms to rendezvous in Singapore. There, they find the city in flames.
Along with this narrative premise, EA profiled Recker’s squadmates; see renders of Pac and Irish and check out their vital statistics.
