Happy Battlefield 4 Day one and all! Well, you lucky so and sos over the pond anyway, as Battlefield 4 launched in the good old US of A today, and to celebrate that DICE has released a launch trailer packed with explosions. Lots and lots of beautiful explosions.

If you like guns, explosions, mayhem and stunts, in that order of magnitude, then Battlefield 4 looks like the place to be right now. For those of us unlucky enough to not have the game yet, this is as good as it gets, but this video is truly a visual and aural assault on the senses…

In what makes a startling change from the recent trend of releasing a launch trailer before the idea has even been conceived in the creative director's mind, the Battlefield 4 launch trailer has arrived on, shock horror, its actual launch day!

The new trailer is a 'Levolution' showcase, and a few bits show you how to truly die in style. Quad bike + skyscraper = enough said. If you ever caught any of us here at Game-Debate squeezing a jet fighter through a narrow gap, it would most definitely look more Airplane than Top Gun.

Battlefield 4 is out today in the US, and launching two days later on November 1st in Europe.

Who's already picked up their copy and is on the battlefield?

Let us know what you think of the game so far below!

Epic moment in BF4 singleplayer (and a sour reminder that I've been playing too much other FPS games lately);
There's this mission fairly early in the game where you have to destroy a tank. I grabbed a couple of AT mines and spammed them all around the building the tank circles. Then the tank saw me and I ran inside the building for cover. Seconds later I died when the building collapsed on me...
My brain went "Stupid a$$, this is Frostbite!" :D

Anyone who has played the game yet, do you know if you can take out the power in a building?

Will we be able to do all those things in the trailer? Or will it be more like Crysis 3...?

Everything you see in the trailer is what you can do, more or less.
They can't promise that you will be an awesome pilot and be able to fly through a crack in the dams wall, but besides that, you can do everything you see :D

I guess I was misunderstood with my question. For example, there were some scenes where you were not actually the one who performed the action, they were more like cut-scenes. So the question was not about if we would literally be able to do those stunts. It will depend on each player's skill, of course. I hope my question is better understood now.

Yes. I belive all in there is actual gameplay if i'm not wrong. That's how BF series have done it in the past as far as i am concerned.

Looks a bit too much like BF3... A must-buy for me nonetheless :D
That theme song sounds awesome, reminds me of the BF1942 theme more than other BF themes ;)

Finished BF 1942 about 2 weeks ago. A good game for those days. And yes, there is a resemblance between the 2 theme songs.

There is more changes in bf3 to 4, than CoD have ever done in the latest past cods starting from MW1 - Ghost. They put a dog in the center, and got dynamic battlefield in multiplayer and some walls that could be blown. They already had all that in BF BC.. I try not to badtalk Cod, but these are fact

How well does your rig run it... Is the game well optimized...? My cousin wants this game (i5-2500 plus GTS 450)... I'm asking since the GTX 550 ti is essentially a renamed and overclocked GTS 450 with an extra memory channel...

Not to start up a fight, but you can't tell me the CoD:Ghosts trailer is better.

Probably the best trailer for BF4.
I'm sure that was the "Noob's" voice from Battlefield Friends when they jumped out the top of the Skyscraper on the quad bike shouting "LEVOLUTION!!!!"

Why do people ask if they can run it? Just go to battlefield 4's page and put in your rig details. It really confuses me that people find it hard to do that.

I dont't think so amd a10 6800k integrated also struggles at low settings and we all know that Intels intergrated grapichcards are'nt as good as those from amd so that he can run this game (playable) is very unlikely
