15w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went hands on today with Battlefield 4 Multiplayer on PS4.
Below are the details, as follows: DICE's upcoming Battlefield 4 has captured the attention of military shooter enthusiasts for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the game's promise of 64-player multiplayer warfare running at a smooth 60 frames per second on PS4.
At Gamescom, I got some hands-on time with the first PS4 build of the game - we were among the first group to play the PS4 build outside of DICE. Here's a quick after-action report.
For starters, the game runs at fluid 60 fps and its benefits were instantly noticeable on PS4. This translates to a decidedly smoother, much more responsive feel compared to Battlefield 3 on PS3.

Before getting into some details about the demo the team at DICE wanted to thank SCEA for helping us get the demo out a week early for North America. So, thank you to all those at SCEA that helped make this happen, you guys seriously rock!

The video doesn't show anything on the 12-on-12 multiplayer that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is supposed to have, but it does point to multiplayer features, based on those green player labels that pop up towards the end of the vid.
Rumor has is that it could even have as much as 40 players online...
