EA published a fact sheet about DICE’s next-gen shooter Battlefield 4 in a press release on Wednesday, March 6, detailing the game’s key features. Since the game has been out since late October last year, these facts are already known to the portion of players who already play the game or are well-versed in the the game. However, for those who don’t know what Battlefield 4’s key features, this fact sheet will fill you in on what you need to know.

Battlefield 4 is a next-gen shooter that runs at 60 frames per second on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, a first for consoles. It features 64-player multiplayer and touts an all-out war setting, where players can experience a dynamic battlefield that physically changes and evolves in real-time based on player-made action, like leveling an entire skyscraper or cutting the power to a building. This has been coined as “Levolution”.

What’s more, Battlefield 4 also has a mobile counterpart: Commander Mode, which allows the “commander” to see the battlefield with a birds-eye view and deliver information, manage support activities and deploy war assets during a multiplayer match.

These are all some of the key features of Battlefield 4 . The full list from the press release is bullet-pointed below.

An unmatched level of visual and audio fidelity, superior character animations, and dynamic environments. Featuring Michael K. Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire) as “Irish”, Battlefield 4 employs unprecedented facial-rendering, to deliver dramatic and believable performances previously unseen in gaming.

  • Levolution – Experience a dynamic battlefield where no two games will ever be the same. Player’s actions physically change the battlefield in real-time, providing interactive game environments that react to their every move.
