Battlefield 4: Chinese vehicles, shoot-while-swimming confirmed


Battlefield 4 developer DICE has answered some burning questions regarding Battlefield 4's vehicles and marine combat.


The studio has confirmed that the game will feature a whole new selection of Chinese vehicles thanks to the addition of that faction.


It revealed one new vehicle - the Chinese Z-10W Attack Heli - in a new screenshot pictured above. Some of the other Chinese vehicles in the game include:


Type 99 MBT

ZFB-05 Armored Car

Z-9 Haitun Transport Heli

DV15 Interceptor Attack Boat

The studio also discussed one of the game's biggest new gameplay mechanics - naval combat.


"Amphibious Assault will play a big role in Battlefield 4 as we've added attack boats like the RCB-90 (U.S.) and jet-skis. Controlling the sea in addition to the land and air will play a crucial role in victory," it explained.


DICE confirmed that, for the first time in the BF series, infantry will be able to use one-handed weapons and gadgets while swimming - useful in the case of a pre-explosion bail-out.


The PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 Battlefield 4 release date is set for October 29 in the US and November 1 in the UK . Next-gen versions will be out "this holiday" alongside the new consoles.



Tomb Raider Next-Gen Sequel Confirmed


Square Enix has confirmed it is working on a Tomb Raider sequel for the next generation of consoles.


In an open letter, the company's Western CEO Phil Rogers confirmed that a sequel has been in development for some time.


"I am also excited to reveal that we are well into development on a next-generation Tomb Raider sequel – something you may have heard about recently," he wrote.


A sequel was pretty much guaranteed considering the game's success. We heard at Comic-Con this year that Dark Horse comics were producing a series set after the conclusion of the first game and designed to lead into the eventual follow-up.


Still, it's good to know for certain that the game is in development, that it's making good progress, and that it'll be on next-gen consoles everywhere.
