First-person shooter Battlefield 4 hits the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this week.
The game will feature missions that take place across the world in destinations such as Azerbaijan, Shanghai, and Singapore. In one chapter, players will rescue VIPs, among them a CIA field operative known as Laszlo W Kovic.
Kovic is the focus of an upcoming Battlefield novel that provides the backstory for the CIA operative and the larger Battlefield 4 fiction.
Developer DICE revealed the minimum and recommended specifications for the PC version of the game last month. Battlefield 4 is also coming to next-generation consoles the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as launch titles for those platforms in November.
