Battlefield 2018: 8 Leaked Details You're Not Supposed To Know

2. Destruction Will Be Given A Larger Focus

While later Battlefield titles have featured destructible environments (and in many ways gone harder than ever, especially with the levolution mechanic in BF 4), they've never quite matched the joy of the unscripted demolitions found in the Bad Company series.

There, you could level entire maps, bring just about every building crumbling down (extra points if someone was inside at the time), carve out your own routes through choke points and fashion impromptu sniper positions. It wasn't as visually stunning as the destruction in the current titles, but it felt way more satisfying and unpredictable.

Thankfully, rumours about the next game suggest it's going to attempt to recapture that level of destruction, rather than keep it isolated to specific areas. There's no word yet on whether it will reach the anarchic heights of Bad Company, but making destruction a focus and a reliable tactic in combat will go a long way in continuing to distinguish Battlefield from the competition.
