BF4 Closed Alpha
BF4 news is a little slow right now, as people await Gamescom in late August, speculating that to be the time for more reveals, such as the timing of Beta. Recently, there was a closed Alpha, into which I was not invited, sadly. However, there is some footage posted on Youtube (though there is no guarantee it will be left up because of the NDA). However, I am going to link to a video I watched today, which is a nice compilation of trying out various parts of the game (different classes, vehicles, weapons, etc.). There is not too much revealing, though I did find it neat that, around the 5:00 mark, the player is in a transport heli as a passenger, and is able to look inside the helicopter. I wonder if this will make it easier to drop ammo and med kits mid-flight.
