Battlefield 4 is all about "levolution," EA's gimmicky marketing term used to describe the nonetheless impressive amount of destruction you can cause in the environment. And Activision is saying "hey, we can do the same thing" with its newest pre-order incentive.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will launch with a special multiplayer map for gamers that pre-order. "Free Fall" is a bonus downloadable map that features what Activision calls "dynamic map events."

Oddly, "Free Fall" also features a collapsing skyscraper. Here's how Activision describes it:

Free Fall drops players into a shattered skyscraper on the brink of collapse. Sideways staircases climb into the night sky, elevator shafts run along the ground, and what were once windows now form a terrifying glass floor, hundreds of feet above the city streets.

Unfortunately, there's no video accompanying this release, so we can't quite see how Call of Duty compares with Battlefield. One thing is clear: buildings are not safe in FPS games this holiday.

      I'm not sure I'd really classify BF games and CoD games as direct competitiors anymore.

      The gameplay is exceptionally different and they offer two very distinct experiences. I'm sure they'll both be good in their own right and any comparisons between the two will be superfluous at best.

        Well, they both have stupid pre-order bonuses at least.

        Pretty much. Beyond the "Shoot people with guns" aspect, they are completely different.

          I get what you guys are saying but at the same time they are probably the two most similar big franchises out there.

      Awesome I just changed my gamestop preorder from xbox 360 to Xbox ONe. I can't wait to see the new graphical enhancement with 60fps, oh and the new rumble triggers.

      Yay. Both games have collapsing buildings. But isn't Battlefield 4 the only one that allows YOU to bring it down, with tanks, and also allows you to jump off of it with a parachute and keep on fighting? That's a pretty big difference. I'm not a fan of either franchise, but it's BF4 on next-gen that has me the most intrigued, due to the many transportation options available to players.
