Battlefield 4 Paracel

EA and DICE have just revealed the brand new Battlefield 4 map called “Paracel Storm”, which we first saw glimpses of yesterday. The new map features an island setting with naval warfare, and as expected, it’ll will also include Levolution. Paracel Storm is based on the Paracel Islands in the South China Sea — a hotly contested piece of land that has been the center of a lot of conflict between China, Vietnam, and Taiwan. The new map reminds us a lot of Wake Island.

The new map was unveiled during EA’s GamesCom press conference, where DICE also revealed a brand new Battlefield 4 game mode. The new game mode, called “Obliteration”, where teams compete to destroy each other’s objectives.

Battlefield 4 will be playable on the show floor during GamesCom, where players will be able to check out the new map and game mode.

Stay tuned for more BF4 news and updates from GamesCom!

    Is there any word whether there will be more naval vehicles other than the jetski, rhib boat and patrol boat? DICE said something about amphibious tanks, haven’t seen any in the trailer.

      They have not, but I would ASSUME so…. Either way though I would not care too much because I am not much of a vehicle guy. But if there is, there is. If there isn’t, there isn’t.

      I think they used “tank” as a generic term here describing the LAV, which was also in Battlefield 3. Based on previous artwork, I am 100% confident it will make an appearance in BF4 as well (along with its Chinese and Russian counterparts).

    To writer
    Paracel is too far from Taiwan. It should be “Vietnam”, according to all the news around the net.

    Paracel island is Vietnam’s property. EA made a mistake. Just a little research, we will know that. Is this some sort of marketing for Chinese players? Against the history.

    @Huy, @Korona : So ? By a little search, I know Paracel islands that administered by China, China has built an airstrip on one of the islands. And China has occupied the Paracel Islands since 1974, when its troops seized a South Vietnamese garrison occupying the western islands, after of approval of North Vietnamese.

    Hoang Sa is belong to Vietnam. China tried to take over it at war time in Vietnam. It was wrong and against the International rules and UN Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982. It’s still belong to Vietnam. EA must fix it. “So?” you said, yeah wait when your country’s property has other country’s name on it. And let’s see how you react

    EA just think about money. They only want profit and dont want the true because EA come from a rich country, they always use their streng of mitality and money to get land of other country.
    and like that, EA use game for China take land of Viet Nam. Viet Nam is a small country, very small and the profit of Vietnamese use product of EA just like a cake in a store so they dont care about us. THey use game and money for the thief, the stealer.
    China steal our Paracel island (Hoàng Sa) in 1974. After that they sigh in UN Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982 but they dont give back our insland. A small country like us cant do anything because China have money and strong mitality but in the truth UN Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982 make China like a joke of World. They sigh in a law and they dont follow the law.
    so i have only one question:

    WHY THEY SIGH IN “UN Convention on the Law of the Sea 1982” ?
    and with China other country LIKE WHAT ?
