Storm warning: Battlefield 4’s Paracel Storm map gets trailer20 Aug 2013
So yes, it’s fast and frenetic and features lots of guns and explosions and collapsing buildings. Paracel Storm appears to be set on a tropical island of sorts, with lots of palm trees and beautiful skies, and… oh. Everything’s gone a bit dark, and the water’s gone a bit choppy. I suppose that’s why it has “Storm” in the map name.
It’s worth watching if you’re curious about how Battlefield 4‘s multiplayer will look, mind you, and the bit where a battleship crashes onto the island is genuinely impressive. It’ll be less impressive when it happens within 30 seconds of the match starting and is immediately followed by a stream of “lol” “LOL” “LOOOOOOL” “omg fkn noob” “haha loser”, though.
Battlefield 4 is due out on 29 October, and you can read about the pre-release beta and the please-give-us-more-money Battlefield 4 Premium subscriptions here.
