Ask DICE: Battlefield 4
We’ve been seeing questions pouring in from fans who are excited for the launch of Battlefield 4 – now just months away!
In the spirit of keeping you informed and Prepared 4 Battle we’re starting a new series called “Ask DICE,” featuring questions that we’ve received from Battlefield players and answers straight from the development team. Check back here at the Battlefield blog every other Friday for answers, exclusive info, and more.
Battlefield 4 Vehicle Q&A
To kick the series off, we’re answering your questions about vehicles. The ability to fly, drive, roll, crash, and splash your way into combat has long been a staple of Battlefield. Battlefield 4 is taking this to the next level and extending the battle beyond the shores with new naval vehicles and amphibious combat.
What kinds of vehicles are in the game? Could you go into more detail about them?
With the new Chinese setting in the game we can confirm these all-new Chinese vehicles in Battlefield 4, including (but not limited to)…
-Type 99 MBT
-ZFB-05 Armored Car
-Z-9 Haitun Transport Heli
-Z-10W Attack Heli
-DV15 Interceptor Attack Boat
What kind of water vehicles will there be?
Amphibious Assault will play a big role in Battlefield 4 as we’ve added attack boats like the RCB-90 (U.S.) and jet-skis. Controlling the sea in addition to the land and air will play a crucial role in victory.
And, if you need to bail out of your jet-ski or attack boat, now you’ll be able to dive underwater or sprint-swim away to escape pursuers. If the situation gets desperate, you’ll also be able to use one-handed weapons and one-handed gadgets while in water for the first time.
When are we going to see videos or screenshots of more vehicles?
Right now! To commemorate the first “Ask DICE: Battlefield 4” we have this exclusive shot of the Chinese Z-10W Attack Heli. Check it out!
