Pre-orders have already started

When it comes to first person shooters, one of the most popular franchises comes from DICE and EA in the form of Battlefield. The next game in the franchise will be Battlefield 4, and DICE has revealed that the fourth game in the franchise will be a new benchmark in game design and multiple player engagement.

Battlefield 4 will launch in the fall of 2013 using the proprietary Frostbite 3 game engine. The developers promise the game will give players a glimpse into the future of interactive entertainment.

In the single player mode, players will be able to experience huge environments filled with all sorts of destruction along with an arsenal of different vehicles, weapons, and more. In the single player missions, players will be able to direct squad mates and the single player mode will track the player's progress. The game will require players to work with their squad mates in both the single player campaign and multiplayer modes.

"We are so humbled and proud to debut Battlefield 4 on a global stage with simultaneous events in San Francisco and Stockholm. To be this early in development, and to already be so polished is a huge achievement for the DICE team and reflection of their passion and commitment to driving the franchise forward. Today's demo was just the beginning -- we have so much more in store," said Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President, EA Games Label.

Players can pre-order Battlefield 4 at participating retail outlets and will perceive the Premium expansion pack at no additional cost with their pre-order. The Digital Deluxe Edition will be available exclusively as a download via Origin.

Ya, but this is from DICE and I have faith in DICE. Ya EA got their hands in there and will probably try to poison it (like they already have with Origin) but it seems like DICE is really trying for the customer, their games are awesome so far and I love BF3 and BF:BC2. Unlike a lot of the console kiddie games (CoD and MoH) this actually has substance, not just running around really fast and spamming. BF series is more tactical, waiting, and actually working as a team. I also love my 64-man servers.

Check the evolution of the franchise, Battlefield is going the COD way, Metro and a few other maps on BF3 are screaming COD, BF4 will probably look like COD with the exception of vehicles (that weren't even shown on the video) and bigger maps.
