During EA's E3 press conference, DICE rolled out the big guns with Battlefield 4 and revealed what Commander Mode means for the upcoming new shooter. They also showcased just how crazy destruction has got.

Battlefield 4 has something they call 'levelution' which means the map and player tactics can drastically alter after, say, collapsing a skyscraper. We're treated to such a spectacle.

For those who'd like some anonymous online Battlefield gaming, DICE actually plans an "invisible mode" to be patched into Battlelog, with their current "goal to introduce new privacy before BF4", but that could slip.

This should keep players hidden when they're logged in, and mask what servers they've picked, which would help cut down the online stalking and trolling. Battlelog is DICE's social stat-tracker.

Battlefield 4 developer DICE is, obviously, busy working on Battlefield 4 and so it's little surprise that it will be in attendance next week at E3 in Los Angeles. However DICE has "a couple of surprises up our sleeve."

VP Karl-Magnus Troedsson in a 'Surprises from DICE at E3' video promises there'll be more than just Battlefield. DICE do have a Star Wars title in the works, but then there's also Mirror's Edge 2?

Those misfits from Bad Company aren't getting a sequel anytime soon as EA confirms that they "don't have it in active development," but are instead all about Battlefield 4 this year. The last entry was in March 2010.

Bad Company offers a lighter toned Battlefield with plenty of comedic banter between the squad. Multiplayer from Bad Company 2 led the charge for a long-time before Battlefield 3 showed up.
