Operation Metro returns in Battlefield 4: Second Assault

Remakes of any kind are a tricky thing, but trickier still when it comes as DLC. Battlefield 4: Second Assault is a prime case of this. On one hand, it's nice to revisit your favorite maps from previous games, with all the L...

Battlefield 4 AXE body spray commercial is ... uh huh ... photo
Battlefield 4 AXE body spray commercial is ... uh huh ...
by Jim Sterling

Hey kids, do you want to look at something stupid this morning? Look no further than this juicy slice of video idiocy, courtesy of Battlefield 4 and AXE's pore-closin' smell juice!

Together, AXE and BF4 celebrate men and women working together in the field of conflict the only way they know how -- implied boning! So much boning will be going on, while shells detonate and comrades bleed from massive wounds all around them. They'll bone so hard you'll think they were made completely out of bones -- like the bloodstained bones jutting from severed limbs three feet away from their bangin' patch. 

Are you shitting well turned on yet? You better be, you malingering tumors. It's AXE! The power of AXE! The sexual might and throbbing majesty of AXE! The slick, pulsating, quivering member of AXE! The engorged, gibbering, vomiting, stinking length of AXE! 

It is AXE.

This is Battlefield 4's chaotic multiplayer

I didn't pick Battlefield 3 up until well after its initial release, but after running into launch-week issues for more than a few of DICE's games now, I'm surprised. I was not expecting to be able to get into Battlefield 4 ...

What happens when you're in BF4's collapsing buildings

Remember that crazy Battlefield 4 E3 demo where the skyscraper came tumbling down and "leveloution" became a word? Yeah, that was great -- the collapsing building, not the buzzwords. But have you wondered what it looks like ...

EA makes Battlefield 3 Close Quarters DLC free during E3 photo
EA makes Battlefield 3 Close Quarters DLC free during E3
by Brett Makedonski

EA's pretty keen on its Battlefield franchise, and wants to make sure you're as geared-up as possible for Battlefield 4. The best way to do this is probably to ensure that players are still playing lots of Battlefield 3. And presto! Free DLC all up in your business!

For the week of E3 (now, for anyone that's reading this and somehow doesn't know that), Battlefield 3's "Close Quarters"  will be available for free on all platforms. There are a few other perks for Premium subscribers -- a weeklong double XP event and an exclusive dog tag.

This promotion comes as a "celebration" of the announcement of the revamped multiplayer system in Battlefield 4. 64 player multiplayer sounds good for later, but free DLC sounds good now.

Ugly photos from Battlefield 4's Alpha leak new features

'Who the f*ck gives a sh*t about f*cking Xbox 360?'

It's an innocuous enough little blog post -- an article on Battlelog aiming to help Xbox 360 users save space on their hard-drives by deleting obsolete Battlefield 3 update files. Fair enough, right? Wrong!  The otherwis...

Can Battlefield 4's narrative be relevant after Spec Ops? photo
Can Battlefield 4's narrative be relevant after Spec Ops?
by Alec Kubas-Meyer

In lieu of partying or whatever it is college kids are supposed to be doing, I decided that my number one priority this spring break would be to to replay Spec Ops: The Line. I joined the Spec Ops party a bit late, but the narrative really struck me in a way that few videogame stories have, and I have been slightly obsessed with it ever since.

So, with Brendan Keogh's 50,000 word analysis Killing is Harmless by my side, I went through it again. And it's even more interesting the second time, with its critique of the player, videogames, and military shooters in particular. If you haven't done that, I highly recommend it.

Ever since I first played Spec Ops, I've wondered whether or not it would influence future games and how it would do so. But since Spec Ops's release, there really haven't been any notable modern military games (Warfighter doesn't count). It turns out that Battlefield 4 will be the first. When I first saw that gameplay had been revealed, I was intrigued. When I read that DICE wanted "players to have a very emotional connection with the story and setting they're presenting," I was ecstatic. In my mind, this meant that the team had played Spec Ops, analyzed Spec Ops, and learned from Spec Ops. The game wouldn't be as soul-crushingly pessimistic (not a bad thing), but it would be a step ahead of the general military game narrative. So I went into the 17-minute long demo of Battlefield 4 excited, with Spec Ops's lessons fresh in my mind. 

Meh.

Battlefield 4 not coming to Wii U because it's too risky
