Battlefield 4 and Call of Duty: Ghosts will go head-to-head later this year on next-gen consoles. At this point, I think we can all agree that Battlefield 4 will take the visuals crown, but gameplay is king no matter how you slice it. It's with that in mind that both EA and Activision are starting to sell their respective shooter's multiplayer modes to the public.
In the latest trailer for Battlefield 4, DICE shows off what kind of multiplayer mayhem players can expect from its latest title. Everything on display here has already been shown before, but that doesn't make it any less impressive. In fact, it makes it even harder to wait for the full transition to next-generation consoles so the talented developers at DICE won't be held back by the aging hardware of the PS3 and Xbox 360.
The end of the trailer also serves to remind gamers that EA is taking part in a transition program where those players who buy a physical copy of Battlefield 4 for the Xbox 360 or PS3 can upgrade to the digital version of the same game on the Xbox One or PS4. You can find more details about that here.
If you're more of a Call of Duty fan, you'll want to check out the new Call of Duty: Ghosts trailer. It may look as pretty as Battlefield 4, but it has space battles and dogs jumping into helicopters. Remember folks - visuals aren't everything. Sometimes all it takes is a dog to make the entire gaming world fall in your lap.
