Battlefield 4 Campaign Will Offer More Options, Less Linearity
Battlefield 3 had a lot going for it—exciting multiplayer modes, large maps, an active community—but its single-player elements were less than spectacular. Though the game’s single-player campaign was by no means bad, the fact that it was exceedingly linear felt like a wasted opportunity to deliver open-ended gameplay, especially given how it boasted some of the largest multiplayer maps to ever grace a first person shooter.
Battlefield 4 will not be anywhere was confined as its predecessor. Speaking to the Official Playstation Magazine, DICE General Manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson admitted that the campaign in BF3 had problems, and promises to fix that in the upcoming game.
“There are signature multiplayer elements that we want to bring into single-player,” Troedsson said (via PC Gamer). “We want to give the player a choice. Do they want to go for the sneaky approach with a sniper rifle and a silenced pistol, or do they want to take a jeep and have the entire squad shoot at everything they see?”
Troedsson added that the campaign will offer players more spacious maps to play around in. In other words, the single-player campaign will be a lot closer to what you might want to experience from a Battlefield game.
