Interview with Battlefield 4 producer Patrick Bach

An extensive video interview with BF4 executive producer Patrick Bach.

DICE’s Patrick Bach was interviewed extensively at E3 earlier this month, several times on camera. During the Battlefield 4 E3 showcase on the show floor, Bach was interviewed about Battlefield 4 and gave his thoughts on the game, its features, and more. He also talks about his job as “executive producer” and what that entails in a large game such as Battlefield 4. The video interview also features plenty of gameplay video from E3.

Sharing is caring!

      US is blue and Chinese is red. Squadmates are green. US shoots at red people and Chinese shoot at blue people.

        False. stupid teammates are blue, squadmates are green, and enemies are red, that’s how its always been and Patrick Bach himself says it during the interview, how can you be that stupid!

    Unless they changed how bf works, blue and green are always friendly regardless what team your on, red is enemy. In the video he clearly shoots at blue. Are you not getting what i am saying?

      This is only due to the game being presented in Spectator mode. It will play and display the same way as BF3.

      Blue = your team
      Red = opposing team
      Green = your squad

      Again, what is shown in the video is only because it is in spectator mode. While in spectator mode, you are on NO team.

        Even in spectator mode when you’re not on a team, aren’t you still spectating a person playing? If so, then red should be that person’s enemies and blue should be that person’s team members

          Yes, cuz then why wouldn’t every one be green? i mean their all on a squad… so if their are green people it must mean that you adopt the color code of the person you’re spectating.

      Look better at the footage, green = squad, blue = US, red = China.
      When they were talking about friendly fire, you actually see the guy firing at the blue target get hit marks.
      Last sequence you see several squad member down blue targets as well.

    I totally agree with the hit marks phobia, but Patrick seems to think they are teammates.

      You can just use the reply link 😛
      Though this isn’t representative for the end game, but it will likely get confusing if they’re going to lock marker colors to a faction instead of to friendly/enemy.

    There is a part where he says that the player is shooting at his teammate but he was mistaken. In spectator mode it the colors for the factions don’t change. The guy in charge of the spectating is switching between the different teams. That’s why it seems confusing. Just watch the other gameplay videos from E3 and they explain this every 2 minutes.
