• "Battlefield 4's" playerbase is currently more active than ever
  • The game has aged extremely well in terms of gameplay and graphics
  • There are new players who are jumping into the battlefield for the first time 

Players are storming their way back into “Battlefield 4,” filling the once-empty servers back up to the brim and reigniting the community’s love for the game’s large, mayhem-fueled matches following the reveal for “Battlefield 2042.”

The sudden wave of players didn’t just bring back veterans, however. An increasing number of new players are also joining “Battlefield 4” for the first time, kicking off what might just be a full-blown revival of the game just months before “2042’s” release.

Some gamers might be wondering if “Battlefield 4” is still worth getting in 2021, but with the recent influx of new players and the game’s presence on Steam with a massive discount, now is probably the best time to try it out.

When EA revealed “Battlefield 2042” back in E3, “Battlefield 4” saw a large surge in its player count, prompting the developers to host new servers based on the west coast to cater to the needs of the players. In the following weeks, interest in the game across all regions spiked, revitalizing “Battlefield 4” servers worldwide.

Server population is no longer an issue for “Battlefield 4” ever since the E3 showcase. Players won’t have any problems finding a match during peak hours, and depending on the region, some players may even find a number of servers that are bustling with activity even during odd or irregular times.

“Battlefield 4” has also aged very well. Despite being a 2014 title, the game looks as gorgeous as ever, and the overall gameplay design still holds up even after all these years.

Gunplay and vehicular combat in “Battlefield 4” are extremely satisfying, with thundering cannon barrages and choruses of guns singing to the tune of DICE’s expertly crafted soundscape and audio design.

Balance-wise, new players will have nothing to fear from veterans as the equipment provided at the beginning of the game can compete very well against the ones unlocked at the later stages of the game.

The premium edition of “Battlefield 4” is currently available on Steam right now for a huge discount thanks to the annual Steam Summer Sale. This will grant players access to all of the game’s DLCs, including a number of premium perks like extra cosmetics and the ability to cut server queues with premium priority.

“Battlefield 4” is a must-try for lovers of FPS games, and it’s likely that the game will continue to enjoy plenty of activity until the eventual release of “Battlefield 2042.”
