On the surface, it doesn't look far off from its 2011 predecessor, Battlefield 3, but just wait until you get into the game.
The Commander role, first made popular in Battlefield 2, has been revived. The commander sports a top-down view of the map and is able to coordinate attacks as well as support teammates with supplies or a Tomahawk missile—whatever he feels is more fitting for the situation.
Along with the Commander mode, we look forward to new environmental tricks, such as Levolution, a feature that allows destructible objects to change the map layout. Example: A whole skyscraper toppled over in the E3 demo, changing the capture point for the rest of the game.
