EA confirms Battlefield 4; beta begins Fall 2013
EA has confirmed the existence of Battlefield 4.
Following yesterday's rumor, EA announced today that access to the exclusive beta for Battlefield 4, the next entry in DICE's critically-acclaimed shooter series, will be available to players who pre-order Medal of Honor: Warfighter Limited Edition prior to the game's launch on October 23.
The exclusive Battlefield 4 beta will be available in Fall 2013. Additional details regarding Battlefield 4 will be revealed "at a later date".
“Though Battlefield and Medal of Honor Warfighter each offer players a completely unique experience, they are united by their underlying technology base – Frostbite. These are two of the hottest shooters, coming together to deliver a one-two punch of action, intensity and shooter entertainment,” said President of EA Labels Frank Gibeau.
While Frostbite 2 made its grand debut with Battlefield 3, early Warfighter gameplay footage shows developer Danger Close Games have expanded on the groundbreaking gameplay experience that the engine allows. Written by U.S. Tier 1 Operators while deployed overseas, Medal of Honor Warfighter is set to deliver this year’s most authentic military shooter experience inspired by real warriors, real operations and real places.
“Frostbite 2 is an amazingly powerful technology that challenges us to break the multiplayer mold. The unique premise of global warfighters in Medal of Honor Warfighter has inspired us to pioneer new multiplayer concepts such as Fire Teams and the idea of having Tier 1 Operators from around the world go head-to-head in online competition,” said MoH Executive Producer Greg Goodrich.
