Controversy Over New BF4 SP Trailer



The gaming world has been emitting mixed emotions about the latest trailer for DICE’s upcoming FPS title, Battlefield 4, as it seems to have taken an underhanded swipe about the new Call of Duty and one of its selling points, Riley the squad dog.

Riley has been one of the major marketing points for Activision and Infinity Ward for their upcoming title, Call of Duty: Ghosts, as has generally invoked quite a positive reaction from its audience and fans of the game.

This makes the latest trailer for Battlefield 4 leave a bit of a sour taste in your mouth by the end of it, as one of the cut scenes in the cinematic is a soldier clearly punching a German shepherd in the face.

Whether the slight was intended or just a mistake remains unclear, but the reaction from the public is definitely not a positive one.

What do you think of the situation? Do you feel advertising like this is perfectly okay, or was it done in bad taste? Watch the trailer and leave your thoughts below:
