Battlefield 4 Story

Featuring some stunning visuals, plenty of shouting, loads of explosions, and a large man punching a dog in the face, it's probably safe to say that Battlefield 4's newest trailer is going to be remembered for one thing.

But let's not let that single talking point get in the way of an otherwise enjoyable video. While it's clear that EA's latest entry in the series is striving for something more emotional in terms of the narrative, we can't help but think that this clip lacks the tension and intrigue that competitor Killzone: Shadow Fall's story trailer portrays. Which title will end up with the better campaign? We reckon it'll be whichever game strays furthest from generic plot points and awful characters – but at least they'll both look extremely pretty on Sony's next generation console.
