Battlefield 4 set to launch in just a few weeks, latest video talks customization

 
If you haven’t pre-ordered Battlefield 4 yet, you are running out of time to cash in on all the free DLC, and beta chances that await you. The latest video released from EA and DICE show off the new customization options that players can take advantage of in the new Battlefield 4 installment.
 
The video features Matt Cuttle at DICE in Stockholm to meet Battlefield 4 Lead Core Game Designer Alan Kertz and they talk about weapon customisation in the game. The system has been revamped in the new installment, there are canted sights and a variety of grips. A variety of paint jobs can be applied to make weapons blend in or stand out.
 
“When customising, players are presented with a 3D model of their weapon which allows them to view every detail,” explains the video. “In addition, information is given to show how much each add-on affects the ability of each weapon. Even secondary weapons can be altered and crafted for a specific game mode or map.”
 
Vehicles are also more customisable than ever before. Weapons can be swapped out depending on requirements such as anti-infantry of anti-air, whilst also having access to their own custom paint jobs. There is even an adaptive camouflage system which blends vehicles such as the helicopter automatically to match the surroundings.
 
Tiered reloading means you now don’t have to play entire reload animations if you switch weapons halfway through a reload sequence. Once the clip has been removed and you switch to another weapon, switching back means you have to put the new clip in and fire.
 
If you pre-order from Amazon you get free credit and free DLC, “Pre-order Battlefield 4 for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 and receive a $10 promotional credit,” plus you will get a bonus Battlepack code. “Battlepacks contain a combination of new weapon accessories, dog tags, knives, XP boosts, and character customization ites.”
