DICE announced yesterday on Battlelog that they are partnering up with Dimitri Vangelis, Wyman X, and Steve Angello to create a "Payback" Collaboration Trailer in which Battlefield 4 players can actually submit their BF4 gameplay footage to be included. The trio is providing their latest hit song entitled "Payback" as the soundtrack for the trailer.
I think this is a pretty neat idea for a few different reasons. Not only does it give Battlefield fans a chance to be in a Battlefield trailer, which would obviously be pretty cool. If put together right (which has never been a problem for DICE), it will be a trailer completely comprised of actual gameplay footage, which will give the Battlefield 4 trailer more of a raw feel than we've seen in the past. Plus the track just has a completely different vibe then any Battlefield trailer we've ever seen.
