If you think you’ve seen all there is to the modern war first-person shooter genre, think again. EA just unveiled 17 minutes of gameplay from Battlefield 4, which will come out this fall on PS3, PS4, PC and Xbox 360.
There is more emphasis on squad combat this time, with the ability to have players working together in campaign and multiplayer, and issue squad orders.
Now, I’ve only seen a few mainstream FPS games that had players working together as teams, but this is changing quickly. Planetside 2 has helped build this, and if all goes well, we’ll hopefully start seeing players working as teams, instead of just playing next to each other while on the same teams (and on that note, if you’re looking for a great FPS with solid squad combat, check out Project Reality).
