Confirmed from the screenshots. 5 man squads, C4 for recon again, tanks no longer have unlimited ammo, possible items for micro transactions and several UI changes.
So some positives.
Map does look awful. Usual linear, tight map with a whole bunch of un-playable areas and buildings for show instead of use and no confirmation yet we will have any vertical gameplay. Which is the most important thing as far as map design goes.
Yeah, the map doesn't look all that great (although, being early alpha, we have no idea what it will turn out like in the end) but DICE did a pretty good job in their expansions so I'm hoping we're going to see some maps of equal caliber in BF4. Aftermath had a lot of verticality and even Close Quarters had quite a bit of it so I don't think that will be a problem.

Frostbite 2.5. Same engine, with graphics cranked up and a couple minor tweaks.
Well no.. A lot of the changes are simply behind the scenes. Just because you don't notice many of the changes (although there are some very obvious improvements seen in the 17 minute demo) doesn't mean nothing has changed.Edited by moocowman - 6/9/13 at 5:48pm
