Battlefield: Bad Company 2 brings the award-winning Battlefield gameplay to the forefront of PC gaming with best-in-class vehicular combat and unexpected "Battlefield moments." New vehicles like the ATV and a transport helicopter allow for all-new multiplayer tactics on the Battlefield. With the Frostbite-enabled Destruction 2.0 system, you can take down entire buildings and create your own fire points by blasting holes through cover. You can also compete in four-player teams in two squad-only game modes, fighting together to unlock exclusive awards and achievements. Battles are set across expansive maps, each with a different tactical focus. The game also sees the return of the B Company squad in a more mature single-player campaign.
The roar of high-caliber guns, the shouted orders of your squad leader, and the dread of seeing a building fall apart beneath your feet. These are the experiences waiting for you in DICE's Battlefield 4. Participate in battles waged all over the world and secure the victory for your allies.Levolution of warfareStatic maps are a thing of the past. In Battlefield 4 maps have earth-shattering events. Whether occurring naturally or triggered by the player, once they happen they are game-changers. A skyscraper falls down on the city, a town is flooded by water, a monsoon hits while a massive ship crashes into a small island. When either of them happens, be ready to adjust your approach accordingly, or the enemy will have the advantage.Flexible classesPick a class and make it your own. Battlefield 4 (PC) doesn't lock you into a predefined loadout which limits your playstyle. Make your Recon into something other than a sniper. Get a shotgun or an SMG, changing you from a long-distance support to a CQC reconnaissance expert. Every class can be more than you expect of it, because now they are defined more by gadgets than weapons.Engaging singleplayer campaignWelcome to year 2020, when a new great war erupted between nations of the world. You are Sgt. Daniel "Reck" Recker, a member of a U.S. Marine Core Squad called Tombstone. You need to stop an overly ambitious admiral from a coup d’état, and that's just the setup.Listen to your squadmates' relaxed chatter during quieter times, and coordinate with them to take down your enemies. One way or another, your squad will have your back at all times.Exciting multiplayerBattlefield 4 gameplay shines the brightest in its multiplayer. Engage in battles with up to 32 players per side, and in different, carefully designed modes. Conquest takes the battles to the land, air, and sea in fights for flags and enemy extinction. Domination is just like Conquest, but focused on infantry combat. Obliteration will have you retrieve bombs and detonate them at your enemies' key strategic locations. These are but a handful of exciting modes waiting for you in the game.Rewarding teamworkBF4 for PCis as much about accuracy as it is about working with your team. Helping your squad nets all of you Field Upgrades which vastly improve your efficiency during the match. Squad leaders can coordinate with a Commander who oversees the tides of battle. Multiplayer rewards respecting the chain of command and contributing to war efforts, like few games do.Glorious destructionIn addition to levolution, game has a dynamic damage model allowing you to reshape the levels in many different, yet always destructive ways. Drive a tank through a house to see it crumble around you. Tear down a wall with grenades, or knock the supports from under a building with a rocket launcher. Create new avenues of approach and surprise your happily camping enemies.

Your squad leader shouts orders in your ear, because your unit still hasn't completed the assignment. Your FOB is far behind you, but this is the final push. This isn't scripted. This is the reality of playing Squad, an online multiplayer tactical first-person shooter by Offworld Industries.Class-based multiplayerYou can pick one of over a dozen class kits, each designed to fulfill a specific role on the battlefield. Grab a classic like medic or sniper, but there are more waiting for you. Be the one responsible for reconnaissance, have the tools to counter tanks and air vehicles, or dedicate yourself to handling said vehicles. It is up to you, but you will be expected to obey orders and have an exemplary service record either way.Chain of commandGone are the days when the battlefield is full of individuals. Squad, true to its name, puts emphasis on working as a unit to achieve things no individual soldier would be able to. Your squad (PC) leader is the only one who can communicate with other units, set up ad hoc respawn locations, and even coordinate construction of encampments.The difference between a good and bad SL is the difference between life and death on the battlefield and during Squad gameplay. Can you handle the responsibility, or you're prefer to see others take it upon themselves?VehiclesYou don't have to pound the ground all the time. Keep your strength for the fight. Your SL can request vehicles to speed up your journey from one rally point to the next. Armored trucks, motorbikes, APCs, there are even helicopters, if it is what your unit really needs to do your job.Just remember: they aren't infinite, the other squads may request them too, and you are all one team.Dynamic frontlinesYou never stay long in one place if you have to. Your squad leaders can set up rally points and forward operating bases to push the frontline ever closer to your ultimate goal.Rally points will be your ad hoc respawn points, while FOBs are fortified and give you a good positions should your enemy go on the offensive.Game modesSquad has several exciting game modes that will test you and your squad. In Advance and Secure your goal is to capture and hold Control Points in certain order. Insurgency will have you destroy enemy weapon caches thanks to intel gathered through killing foes. In Territory Control you have to reclaim land from the opposing team within time limit. Finally Conquest makes you capture flags, while your respawn tickets drain away.No handholdingSquad gameplay doesn't care for any of the visual aids other games give you. No minimap, no heads-up display cluttering the screen, no convenient enemy highlighting in any way. You don't even see your squad mates' name tags. It's just you, your wits, and the trust that your squad leader knows what needs to be done.
