64 Reasons to Play Battlefield 4


Recommended Posts

We here at DICE cannot wait until the launch of the next-generation of console gaming. The power of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 allows us to deliver the best Battlefield experience on a console ever.

As we prepare for battle on next-gen, over the coming week we will be sharing with you 64 reasons why Battlefield 4 will be the premiere shooter on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this holiday and beyond. Let’s kick off with the first 10 reasons. We look forward to seeing you on the next-gen Battlefield!

Part 2

An epic 64-player all-out warfare battle isn’t the only reason why Battlefield 4 is awesome. Here are six more reasons why you need to play Battlefield 4 this holiday.


Battlefield 4 Second Assault

The upcoming Battlefield 4 Second Assault expansion pack coming first to Xbox One includes four fan-favorite maps from Battlefield 3 pushed to their limits with the power of Frostbite 3. Return to post-nuclear Paris two years later in Operation Metro 2014, featuring flooded subway tunnels and destructible ceilings. The walls of Caspian Border 2014 have been fortified with new vantage points, and players can now bring down its central communications tower. Operation Firestorm 2014 truly lives up to its name – the refinery’s pipelines can be breached to create flammable hazards across the map. Stay sharp as a sand storm rolls through Gulf of Oman 2014. Second Assault also equips players with five new weapons, an all-new vehicle, ten assignments, and the Capture the Flag game mode.


Conquest is the signature Battlefield game mode that features all-out-warfare on land, air and sea and rewards players for solid team play, tactical skills and quick reflexes. In Conquest, you need to capture and hold bases on the maps. The more flags your team holds, the faster the enemies’ tickets will decrease. Win by reducing the enemy ticket count to zero.

This is intense urban warfare amongst the skyscrapers in downtown Shanghai. With a skyscraper that can be completely demolished to alter the map (LEVOLUTION!), Siege of Shanghai also adds a vertical element to the multiplayer experience. Be sure to lookout for falling glass!

Epic Parachute Sniping

Have you ever thrown yourself out of a building, defying gravity as you plummet to the ground below only to deploy your parachute moments before and pulling out your sniper rifle to land a million-in-one shot? If not, you need to play more Battlefield 4. 


The Engineer

A vehicle’s best friend – or worst enemy? Playing as an Engineer in Battlefield 4 means you’re taking down enemy choppers with RPGs or destroying tanks with land mines. But it also means you’re fixing up your team’s vehicles with the trusted repair tool. The Engineer also has access to gadgets like the EOD Bot and the M15 AT Mine.



Battlepacks are like birthday presents on the battlefield. These bundles of joy come in bronze, silver and gold and contain anything from Weapon Accessories to XP Boosts. Don’t worry: Battlepacks don’t give one player an advantage over another; instead they let you tailor your Battlefield 4 experience with more customization options.

Part 164-Player Action

For the first time on consoles, Battlefield 4 lets you jump into 64-player multiplayer mayhem on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Prepare for non-stop action as you’ll have to watch your six at all times.

You Can Point at Many Things

Test Range

Practice makes perfect. Newcomers to Battlefield, or pros who want to perfect their skills, can visit the non-hostile Test Range. Here, you can to test your wings in an attack helicopter or snipe wooden targets or barrels thrown in the air.



I’ve got the bomb! Quick, get to da choppa! DO IT, DO IT NOW! In the frantic Obliteration, you are likely to both shout and hear things like these often. This explosive game mode sees two teams fighting for control over a bomb that must be detonated in the opposing team’s targets.
