In terms of gameplay, the title will feature a single player campaign, which is a slight departure from the previous Battlefield games, which were multiplayer only. Other additions come in the form of fighter jets, the prone position and 64-player battles on PC that were absent from Battlefield Bad Company.
Most of the combat will take place in familiar locations like Paris, Tehran, Sarajevo, Sulaymaniyah (Iraq), New York, Wake Island and Oman, and it will mainly involve urban warfare in streets and back alleys, while some open maps will lend themselves to vehicle battles.
In multiplayer combat, gamers can take control of a class-based soldier, namely Assault, Support, Engineer or Recon. A few changes have been made with the Frostbite 2 engine, which will now allow players to blind others with the engineer’s flashlight, while LMG fire will blur the vision of suppressed players.
