Last week at E3, DICE took the wraps of Battlefield 4 with a series of new gameplay videos showing off the shooter's campaign and multiplayer components.


The videos revealed new and returning features, including a "game-changer called Levolution" and the return of the fan-favourite Commander Mode.

The former creates a "dynamic and emergent battlefield" in which players can interact with the environment to their advantage, performing actions such as cutting the power to a building or toppling a skyscraper.

Commander Mode provides two opponents with a birds-eye view of the battlefield and enables them to turn the tide of the battle by delivering intelligence and assets to their squad on the ground.

Publisher EA has confirmed a Battlefield 4 release date of October 29 in US and November 1 in the UK on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Next-gen versions will be out "this holiday".
