Battlefield 4: DICE Answers Questions About Amphibious Vehicles
DICE and EA have released a new Q&A about vehicular combat in their upcoming FPS, Battlefield 4. It’s the first of (hopefully many) entries in a new series called “Ask DICE“, which features questions that the developers received from Battlefield players and answers straight from the development team.
To start the series, the studio is answering questions about vehicles. The ability to fly, drive, roll, crash, and splash your way into combat has long been a staple of the game. According to the developers, Battlefield 4 is taking this to the next level and extending the battle beyond the shores with new naval vehicles and amphibious combat.
Here’s what they wrote:
Q. What kinds of vehicles are in the game? Could you go into more detail about them?
A.With the new Chinese setting in the game we can confirm these all-new Chinese vehicles in Battlefield 4, including (but not limited to)…
Type 99 MBT
ZFB-05 Armored Car
Z-9 Haitun Transport Heli
Z-10W Attack Heli
DV15 Interceptor Attack Boat
Q.What kind of water vehicles will there be?
A.Amphibious Assault will play a big role in Battlefield 4 as we’ve added attack boats like the RCB-90 (U.S.) and jet-skis. Controlling the sea in addition to the land and air will play a crucial role in victory.
And, if you need to bail out of your jet-ski or attack boat, now you’ll be able to dive underwater or sprint-swim away to escape pursuers. If the situation gets desperate, you’ll also be able to use one-handed weapons and one-handed gadgets while in water for the first time.
