So, by now, our squad is in a bit of a mess. Having fallen through a building, Recker and his buddies are strewn across the floor. One man, Dunn, is trapped beneath a huge piece of rubble, his leg shattered by the stone. Yup--you guessed it--time to cut him loose before the leaking fuel from the downed helicopter ignites and cooks everyone. Battlefield 4 won’t shy away from forcing you to live out tough scenarios, so although Dunn insists that the bones in his leg are “just powder,” you still have to wield the knife and cut him free. Oh, and while we’re talking about knives, we saw a dog-tag-snagging knife kill executed in our demo, so that feature is back too.
With Dunn incapacitated, the squad climb into a nearby jeep and start to flee the Russian helicopter, which is still buzzing them. There’s a chase along a dirt road, with what appears to be several routes to take. No, it isn’t exactly open-world, but there does appear to be choice. It ends with Recker leaning out of the window, pointing a grenade launcher at the pursuing chopper and blowing it out of the sky. The wreck tumbles down in front of the jeep, breaking up into an obscene amount of pieces and forcing them to steer off the road and into the sea... The car starts to sink, and thus we're back with Bonnie Tyler and the beginning scene of our demo.
