(USATODAY.com) - Electronic Arts and studio DICE have released an eye-popping, 17-minute video featuring action from the first-person shooter Battlefield 4.
The video titled "Fishing in Baku" focuses on the single-player campaign, starting out with a squad of soldiers trapped inside a sinking car before flashing back to kick off combat near a factory.
"As artists and craftspeople, we are focused on creating a dynamic, open design that brings people together with amazing, surprising unscripted moments that they'll talk about for days," says Patrick Soderlund, executive vice president of EA Games Label, in a statement. "That's the beauty of Battlefield."
Of course, the big question is how will DICE upgrade multiplayer, hands down the best element of the Battlefield experience, particularly in 2011's Battlefield 3.
Judging on the images shown by DICE, the game looks absolutely gorgeous. Players will spot touches such as paint chipping off doors or finely-detailed debris strewn across buildings and streets.
The game is slated to launch this fall, but no platforms were announced. PredecessorBattlefield 3 launched on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Battlefield 3 became a massive hit for publisher Electronic Arts, topping 10 million sold four months after launching October 2011.
