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.

Until they bring out multiplayer with bots, for a lot of people the game won't be about anything else.

Battlefield online is good (IMO), but what's much better is playing on the biggest maps with a few friends and a bunch of bots.

Agreed. I would even be happy with dumb bots that don't know how to operate the flying vehicles.

In addition to bots, I would like to see the dedicated server install released to the public. I would even be happy with a LAN-only non-ranked option. I've got a pretty capable server running in my garage and I think the newest game server I have on it is L4D2...

Nothing is better than bot bashing on a LAN with a few good friends and a few good beers. No lag, no stress, and you get to try things you could never try in busy public servers.
