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.

No, they followed the schedule they laid out for their DLC. Their last expansion was just put out earlier this month (End Game) and is now done. DICE told us their plan the whole time, it was no surprise. My only thing is that in the article it states that BF4 should be released in Fall of '13 when they originally said Q1 '14, I would be surprised if it was this year. I do wish that premium wasn't so expensive when it came out :(.

I would be really surprised if they released in Fall '13 since the PS4 is projected to release Dec '13 and the Xbox 720 sometime this year. I imagine they would want to try and take advantage of the advanced capabilities of those newer platforms before they finalize the game.

Not necessarily, they will make it for PS3 and Xbox 360, so they can release it for PC/PS3/Xbox360 and later on for the PS4/Xbox720... with a bit of chance people will even pay twice for the same game!
