Battlefield 4: DICE bringing signature multiplayer elements to campaign

Battlefield 4 developer DICE is looking to address the disparity between the series’ campaign and multiplayer modes, by bringing key elements of online play into the single-player component. The studio has shed light on what this means in a new interview.

Speaking with OPM, DICE’s general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson, said “There are signature multiplayer elements that we want to bring into single-player. 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?”

To emulate multiplayer strategies, players will also be able order their AI squad-mates to provide suppressing or covering fire, and you’ll also be faced with wide open terrain littered with vehicles – similar to the Bad Company campaigns.

Does this openness appeal to you? Are you happy to see the studio taking a Bad Company approach to the single-player environments? Let us know below.

Meanwhile, rumour has it Battlefield 4′s second DLC pack ‘Second Assault’ – in which four classic Battlefield maps are remade in Frostbite 3 – will include Caspian Border and Operation Metro. Get the details here.
