There is a lot to unpack in this trailer, as EA Dice has put a lot of effort into the trailer, and it shows as the fan perception thus far has been stellar.

Grappling Hook, Environmental Changes and more

We got a closer look at some of the weapons and vehicles that will be useable within the game, as they are going after a modern look, it seems they closely resemble some of the weapons from Battlefield 3/4.


One of the more notable weapons has to be the Grappling Hook that appeared on screen for a bit, as this looks to offer a new form of mobility around the map for players to use.
