Although battles and wars are won by those who plan ahead, there is always a possibility that it will go astray despite all your best-laid plans. Battlefield 4 reflects that notion, as it introduces its new concept of “Levolution”. For example, one minute you are taking potshots at enemies on the ground from your comfortable sniping spot in an office skyscraper, the next minute you find yourself sliding down the floor of the crumbling building you thought was safe. What was once thought to be an impenetrable fortress of defense quickly turns on its head as a veritable death trap.
The idea that no two gaming sessions will ever be the same isn’t new to video games, but for an online multiplayer first-person shooter, the concept is an intriguing one. Unlike standard FPS multiplayer maps where its environments are static, Battlefield 4’s promise of dynamic arenas may well be the fresh breath of air that multiplayer games need. This month, we take a closer look at how the new Battlefield 4 will change the way we play FPS multiplayer games.
