A really cool multiplayer feature, Commander mode, has been added to Battlefield 4‘s repertoire, as confirmed today by DICE themselves during EA E3 press conference.
Commander Mode was previously used in Battlefield 2142, where one player would watch the battlefield from above and give their players certain strategic advantages, such as marking out intel or launching artillery fire.
By communicating with the players who continue to play on the ground as a normal FPS, you can form strategies and navigate throughout the map in ways that just a player on the ground by themselves could never do.
Commander Mode is a really cool feature that a lot of players would probably enjoy. It’s a nice and refreshing change of pace to sit back and organise things tactically from time to time, and helps to alleviate the boredom that you might feel after playing an FPS for too long.
