Battlefield 4 Rumor – the Return of Commander Mode and Three Playable Factions


Another promotional Battlefield 4 poster spotted at GameStop suggests the return of Commander Mode, and the ability to play as up to three different factions in Battlefield 4′s multiplayer.

Commander Mode was last featured in Battlefield 2 and was a highly requested feature for Battlefield 3, though it did not include it. It let players direct others from a top-down point of view, allowing for a more tactical view of the battlefield. It’s already been confirmed that Battlefield 4′ single player campaign will follow the story of only one soldier, meaning the inclusion of multiple factions would most likely apply to the multiplayer.

YouTuber luger700 spotted the poster in a local GameStop – a company who’s been at the center of a number of Battlefield 4 rumors as of late, the last being a reveal of the game’s release date – which lists these four key highlights:

  • Frostbite 3: Destructible environments and buildings!
  • 3 playable factions – Russia, China and United States
  • All out war! Vehicle combat and “Commander Mode” returns
  • Get access to the first expansion for FREE with reservation. $10 dollar value!
