Battlefield 4 will help noobs, offers up a vehicle test range to test our your helicopter flight skills (NASDAQ:EA)

We've all played Battlefield 3 (or previous titles in the franchise) with novice gamers hopping into a helicopter, taking it into the air, and flying you and your teammates into a building, killing you all.




But, it looks like DICE is trying to get out of this issue by training up potential Battlefield 4 soldiers. Creative director Lars Gustavsson said during an interview with IGN: "We've definitely heard that people are afraid of getting in there [and using vehicles like helicopters] and that's not our intent. We've added a test range, which allows you to try out all the hardware ahead of time so that if you want to learn to fly a helicopter you can get in there and you can find the settings that work best for you."


This means that gamers can test our their flying chops before getting into a real battle, which is a nice touch from DICE. The developer is also working on the Battlefield 4 server system, with the new setup offering "pre-defined scales" with gradual levels of rule sets separating official servers (normal settings), ranked servers (some tweaked settings) and unranked servers (completely customized settings).
