Battlefield 4: leaked screens show boat customisation – rumour

Sunday, 16th June 2013 23:36 GMT By Ewan Miller

You’ll be able to customise your vehicle’s weapons, optics and even paint colour in Battlefield 4, leaked screenshots suggest.

The screens have surfaced on NeoGAF and although they look pretty slick, we can’t verify them.

The screenshots show not only battle tanks and helicopters being sent in for an overhaul, but even the boat, warfare’s deadliest tool.

In addition to equipping your very own boat with lock-on anti-aircraft missiles and infrared defeating smoke, it can also be dressed up in 12 camouflage patterns, including “Starbust Desert” and my personal colours, “Turtle Autumn”. I just know a giant turtle coloured boat wouldn’t look out of place on the blue-orange battlefields of Battlefield.

Thanks, PC Gamer.

    Can you please not use “Rape attempt” in that scenario (or any), its very offending.

    @5 micro transaction is offending bro… it is like rape when you have payed 60 dollars for a game you should get all of the game. and you find out you don’t… it feels like you have been raped and robbed at the same time as a customer.. you sit there with the game disc in hand and looking at the screen, and you see you can’t get the stuff if you don’t pay more… it is shit bro.. its not acceptable. just saying it shouldnt be like that, period.

    No. This will be part of the game. Some things, like more skins/camouflage, weapons and stuff will be unlocked by playing the game. Its the same way it was in Battlefield 3 with the weapons, dogtags and new firemodes for vehicles. I guess there will be those so called “shortcuts”, but these are optional. So cut your “EA is the worst, blablabla” crap, please.

    Rape is a very serious and delicate topic which shouldn’t be compared to what you’re expectations of Micro-transactions are, it nots cool, its not acceptable and shouldn’t be used in that scenario, period.

    @7 Crussong, hey if people dont have to pay for it i am fine with it… no problem there. if i have payed 60 dollars for it and come home and start playing and see they try selling me shit like skins and crap. that should be as unlockable in the game… and it is blinking me in the face like some goddamn neon lights… i will get serious pissed off because that feels like i have been raped off, you know its not acceptable. if they put some god damn effort in some extra maps and shit, its ok… but micro rape fucking transaction is not acceptable at all. i dont bend over and put my ass in the air and let me be shit all over because of ea… no gamers should have to. fuck… it is us gamers that is paying for their pay check, give us the respect we deserve as customers is all i say.

    I saw a mention of “Battle Packs” in a BF4 thread that would contain random items ie weapon camo’s etc. Sounded very reminiscent of the different “packs” offered in Mass Effect 3′s co-op mode. I imagine this will be the means by which EA will implement microtransactions into BF4, and just like ME3, I am sure that said “Battle Packs” will also be earned via some other in-game currency.

    Just my two cents.

    @11 Well, to be fair, that’s strictly speculation on my part. So until something is actually announced, nothing is certain.

    VG247, Can you please higher resolution pictures? for example put this

    @13 Sorry, first day on the job! Blown them up to roughly 720p now, should be better. Sadly there’s no proper high res leak of the shots, it’s a shame for such a nice looking game to seem so blurry.

    #14 2 years ago

    First day?

    Are you in Australia?

    ps There is a typo in the title…

    These pictures are straight from the Alpha demo at E3, I was watching levelcaps youtube videos of BF4 last night and he has a whole video captured from E3 of him going through the available customisation for the vehicles and the pics above look like they have been screencapped straight out of that video. Whether it is going to be paid content in the final game or not will be seen on release but it is definately real

    @20 Planetside was doing 400 a decade ago.

    I agree though, it does add an awesome feel to a game.

    I dont care about the micro transactions..I do not buy anything extra other than the map packs…its all moot unless they let us have our own lobbies ala CoD or Halo. I refuse to buy the game based on that I have to pay for a private server to get all my buddies in the lobby….BC2 got it right with allowing lobbies to be hosted..then here comes BF3 and we have to pay for it..pfffttttt to it.
