As we previously reported, a number of Battlefield Youtubers have received clips of exclusive Battlefield 4 footage from a recent build. While most of these have been around 30 seconds, Threatty somehow received over two minutes, which is the video above. While it still isn’t providing much, if any, new info, it does provide us a continuation of they hype, as well as a chance to have fun and enjoy some of the things we get to see while we wait to get into Beta. After the jump, I’ll share some thoughts and show a few screens I took from the video.
The first few seconds are a bit of a WTF for me. The player fires a rocket at an opponent, apparently misses because they don’t die, and then somehow survives being knifed without countering (my best guess is that the rocket did enough splash damage that the opponent was quickly taken down during the knifing animation by a teammate, thus saving the player being spectated). However, we get from this a nice shot of the stumbling animation on the opponent when the rocket explodes nearby.
Around the 1:00 mark, we see the player walk under some falling water, at which point we see a nice little detail DICE has added: water on the camera lens/player’s glasses (not sure which of those it is meant to be).
Around the 1:37 mark is another look at a nice little detail: look at dat grass! …and the spent casing; nice little details I don’t recall from BF3 (though I am often wrong).
1:42 – This one’s just for fun: trying to land a chopper on its tail always ends badly.
At 2:00, the player faces off with a couple opponents wielding green laser attachments on their weapons. We can see, as DICE stated, that the green laser is distracting, but certainly not blinding.
And finally, I just wanted to finish with a fun one, as this video ends with a couple knifings: dat watch!
Let us know in the comments; what have you seen in these videos that makes you excited for BF4?
