It took six years for DICE to release Battlefield 3 after the previous iteration, so a gap of just two years before the release of Battlefield 4 caused some skepticism – but the company has sworn at GDC it made big leaps during that time.
During a talk on Friday morning, the last day of the conference, DICE lead artist Linnea Harrison said the company wanted to add a heightened sense of realism to the series in order to differentiate itself among the flooded FPS market.
I’ve been playing Battlefield 4 a lot, see, and even months after it came out it’s still pretty messy. The number of times I have somehow dominated everyone completely and utterly with my best m8 Crappy Hand Gun and then suffered a sudden crash is still a lot. The history books will never know my bumbling triumphs.
A few days ago I was haunting the internet looking for gullible people to take my anger out on, as you do. It backfired, ‘cos I found this instead, and I got even angrier. According to a boy and his screenshot, EA are now putting ads in your Battlefield 4 when they should be, I dunno, fixing this thing.

I have many bullets to spare. At the risk of sounding insensitive, that is my gamer’s impression of the Chinese military, care of Electronic Arts. Which I guess is why China’s Ministry of Culture recently banned Battlefield 4 –clueless westerners might think the game is actually real. But here’s the specific reason given by China:
“Battlefield 4 is an illegal video game, with content that endangers national security. It is an aggressive attack on our culture.”
Now, the idea that a video game could endanger national security is laughable. Clearly, this statement needs fleshing out.
