I am just going to say what I always say whenever Dino Mode for Battlefield is brought up (and please read my post thoroughly);According to a GamersSpot article, the dinosaur at the beginning of the E3 demo and Thunder Run trailer was placed in response to a 4chan thread in which a supposed Activision sales manager wondered why their Call of Duty game didn't sell as well on PC as it did on consoles, with several responses saying it was due to a lack of dinosaurs. Gustav Halling, a gameplay designer for Back to Karkand, tweeted about it.Let me list some things.-Millers' son's Dino toy in Thunder Run-5 hidden Dinosaur figures hidden on Wake Island-Hidden Dino on Epicenter-On Gulf of Oman there is a strange blue flashing light behind the tarp of the building under construction. It might be just a person welding something, because, as stated above, it's under construction. There is an object inside the tarp that appears to be in the shape of a dinosaur. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDElUbEBHF8 [youtube.com]-On Sabalan Pipeline near a collections of silos are two toppled fences, the fences are not destroyed by the player but has been previously knocked over. Near the fences, in the snow is a trail of dinoasur footsteps leading up the mountain and out of bounds, as one nears the out of bounds mark a dinosaur roar is heard.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quOobmCgS7M [youtube.com]On Nebandan Flats there are three dinosaur skulls. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4iaGI4DvQE [youtube.com]-Pterodactyl on Nebandan Flats. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwJfapjaTJY [youtube.com]-Plus there is a Dinosaur dog tag for use in multiplayer.I'm sure I even missed one or two.Ok I didnt want to bring it up, but... Look at CoD: WaW and how it introduced the Zombies mode, it was one simple level that was a bonus unlock if you beat the game. Now look at CoD: BO2, the once small and lackluster mode is now a HUGE selling point and most of the games players love the fact that Zombies is included, the main reason the game's DLC sells so well is due to it having a new Zombies map.And when I say "complete creative freedom" I mean DICE wouldent be confined to the realism of the modern day military, the mode could take place on another planet, have all kinds of "un-realistic" content and it wouldent matter, why? It's in a bonus mode that's only correlation to the base game is Frostbite 3, and killing enemies.Watch if DICE includes a Dino Mode at any point for Battlefield 4 (hopfully included at launch) it will drive even more sales of the game, as long as they take some time doing it and don't piece it together.I understand everyone wants Battlefield 4's multiplayer to be the best yet in the series and I have no doubt in my mind that DICE has done an amazing job on the multiplayer component. Nonetheless, a Dino Mode would and could be a viable addition to the Battlefield IP.Look what Ubisoft (Montreal · Shanghai) did with the standalone Far Cry 3 expansion, Blood Dragon. It's themed as a 80's VHS movie with robots and space commandos. And keep in mind that vanilla Far Cry 3 was a "realistic" open world game. The expansion was well received and was downloaded over 500,000 times.I love the Battlefield IP for it's realism, but I would love for a bonus mode (not an entire game) to allow DICE to go "un-realistic" and really put Frostbite 3 and the teams creative power to it's limits.Don't be simple minded, just imagine what DICE could do with creative freedom in a bonus Dinosaur mode in Battlefield 4. They are no longer confined to realism like they are in campaign and multiplayer. They could really do some awesome stuff. And I bet the majority of players would try it and enjoy it.Campaign is for a cinematic story, multiplayer is for team based operations and can be rather stressful. Battlefield doesn't have a mode where you can just play for fun with some friends, and it could really benefit from a mode like that.-Blindspider11

Battlefield 4 Dinosaur Mode
There has been a lot of speculation about a dinosaur mode in the Battlefield series after a number of dinosaur-themed easter eggs in the campaign and on multiplayer maps of Battlefield 3. Whether or not DICE will include such a mode is purely speculation at this point, though they certainly enjoy teasing us. Nonetheless, there is a very good discussion on the topic taking place over on reddit. I felt it good to share possibly the best post I have seen on the topic.
