While a single-player demo was revealed earlier at Microsoft's press conference, DICE has unveiled a new multiplayer demo featuring 64 DICE employees battling it out against an enemy team on the very expansive "Siege of Shanghai" map.
Featuring the iconic weaponry and vehicles of the Battlefield series, DICE were very big on pushing the notion that players will be able to fight in the air, on land and on the water. New water vehicles were also introduced including jet skis and boats.
Destruction was also showcased through the usual chipping back at walls, however a player was also able to destroy an underground pillar holding up a roof, which then collapsed said roof pulling the tank above it down. Another instance of destruction was when a squad of players were holed up inside a sky scraper, with the building being chipped at by explosives. Eventually the players had to jump out as the building collapsed in, deploying their parachutes and watching it crumble to the ground.
Alongside the gameplay reveal DICE also showcased the re-imagined Commander Mode, allowing a player to instruct teammates towards victory through air strike calls and more. Check it out below.

I said this already ages ago but I knew this was gonna feel and look the same as bf3. This whole unveiling has been quite underwhelming. My clan mate though will be jizzing himself silly over commander mode.

And? BF3 looked amazing graphics-wise and it still does, as does this.
It's complaints like these that have meant game companies focussing on graphics to the detriment of gameplay for the last 10+ years.

The building collapsing was epic though, I wonder if thats a scripted event or something dynamic
