People need to remember that those are the achievements "for now".

There is a very good chance they will issue more achievements with each new expansion to the game.

So, 5 for MP for now. More to come later most likely. :-)

Well... that's odd? there will be multiple endings? sounds cool

And I REALLY hope that this mission won't be a flop like in BF3. It's too damn short

@Thanatos2k Glad to see it's not just me. Of course, in game achievements and collectibles are about as dopey and pointless as it gets.................so why NOT write a story about them. Hey! Turned your gaming system on WITHOUT electrocuting yourself, or any family pets? That's an achievement! w00t!! The multiple endings may be plus though.

@Thanatos2k The internet is more about quantity than quality though, we should all know that by now. We live in the information age, yet we were both too stupid to navigate away from this page. For what it's worth it's not like I wasn't interested to see what the achievements were. I now know there are three endings for BF4, which is pretty cool.

@Thanatos2k i see your point, hence the the like. Still though, there are a lot of people who look at these things and help them decide if the game's hunting will be worth it or help steer them towards a purchase ...

@deafwing @Thanatos2k The ACHIEVEMENTS help them decide whether to purchase a game? What the ****?!?

14 missions? not bad...just hope the campaign is actually better than BF3!

@Agent_Vincent87 it's virtually impossible for DICE to create a campaign worse than BF3.

Oh shit, do you need that multiplayer unlock code like the last two installments? Or do I have to pay ten bucks again when I rent the damn game?

I'm surprised one of the MP achievements wasn't "Rent your own server". That's sounds like something EA would do.

@Whiskey3romeo I don't see the fuss about having to pay for your own server. PC gaming has been doing that for ages.

@SergioMX @Whiskey3romeo And its a really good thing kind of like a fail safe if something goes wrong with a server its not the end of the world because they're thousands of other independent one's out there.

When I play game, it's for the actual gameplay, the journey, the story. I couldn't care less about what appears on my trophy or achievement list. In fact, caring about such pedestrian things remove you from the game, making it feel like a chore.

@banana23man Yes, and some people live for them and are still chained to old games because of it.

New games without achievements are rare because games that last more than a day or are not shit are rare these days. All the lame devs married to big publishers have to include them to artificially increase playtime for the demographic dumb enough to think they have value (even though you can't return games...)

Players boosting or hunting for achievements are ruining multiplayer matches.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS!

This is good for me I don't like on-line achievements they can be a huge hassle some times.

Where did achievements come from anyway? aren't these games supposed to be for adults?

Developers should focus on creativity rather than appealing to the lowest denominator. Sorry if I've offended anyone.

@shreddyz I see your point, but I like getting my achievements and I am 30 and I have no shame in saying that it gives a sense of accomplishment when playing some games.

@shreddyz What about achievements is inherently juvenile? I like getting them, personally. It's fun watching your gamerscore climb as you invest more and more time into your games.

Avatar image for shreddyz
shreddyz

@malokevi @shreddyz well aren't achievements sort of meaningless and after thought of a video game. Ok at the end of a game, let's say you can look at how many people you killed. ok so what? I think developers are spending too much of their resources on meaningless nonsense like these achievements/ imaginary trophies. just my thoughts.

Avatar image for shreddyz

@malokevi well aren't those discounts rewarded to those who spend more and more time on a given game. Seems to me that devs try to lure players in by adverting these artificial rewards and bonuses instead of creating content that actually has merit.

Avatar image for malokevi

@shreddyz @malokevi It probably takes no time at all to implement, and it's fun for people. And on top of that, next gen there will be a rewards program attached to achievements which leads to discounts. So, not only do they quantify your gameplay efforts and are fun to collect, it also has practical rewards.

Nothing but positives. I'm happy with my 21,000GS. It's a matter of opinion of course, but I see no reason to dismiss them.

wait wait wait, that has to be a typo. Only 5 for multi? Why would they put so few toward the mode the vast majority of people are buying it for, and so many toward single player? I liked the balance of achievements in BF 3, because I never touched the single player. To me, Battlefield has always been about the multiplayer, and there have been a fair amount of multiplayer achievements in the previous games, so why change it now?

@Fryboy101 There wasn't a lot of them for BF3 either, not until the DLC came out, certainly more than 5. Look on the bright side though, won't have people boosting and cheating to get trophies! Least not till DLC comes out.

@LS-Chaos @Fryboy101 yeah that's true. Plus, I never really focused on getting the achievements because I was just having too much fun to worry about using certain weapons in one life

5 online achievements? I played a total of about 15 minutes of the BF3 campaign, just to get my graphics settings tweaked before hopping online. What a waste of achievements.

Avatar image for sephsplace
sephsplace

@MusclesJAM My graphics are so-so (bout 60fps, very slightly micro stutter every 5 mins or so, but bearable) my friends can run bf3 60fps+ on high/ultra but bf4 for them is unplayable, micro stutters every minute, poor fps, on low or ultra.... i cant stand playing with random people in my squad, so im waiting for the game to be optimised in the beta to play again with my friends...

@sephsplace @MusclesJAM I would try out the beta drivers from Nvidia or AMD. I was having terrible framerates, even with an overclocked 670, but after installing the beta drivers things stabilized quite a bit.

@CommanderShiro Multiplayer achievements can be a huge pain in the ass. They can either be a huge grind or be completely luck based. Or even worse, achievements that cause people to ignore the objectives.

@PCISCOOL Usually, but not when it comes to multiplayer focused games. Battlefield 3's campaign was pretty much a waste of space and 4 hours.
