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.

Will wait for all DLC. Stupid Premium.

I think I would be apprehensive about buying BF4 right away because of what they did with BF3. I bought BF3 midnight, the day of launch, at Gamestop for PC $60. I got the Limited Edition that came with the Back to Karkand DLC when released. However, I found out later there is an entirely new "Premium" DLC that includes all current and new DLC expansions for $60 (at the time they announced this). I was a bit upset that a game would consume $120 of my money to get all content. I did pick it up last week for $24.99 on an Origin deal finally and am having a lot of fun with it. The entire Premium game was $30 for what was $120 total cost if you bought each at launch. If they do this same model for BF4 I might opt to wait until the entire game is released so I can get all content at the normal $60 new game price point, or wait longer and get it for even less. If I knew they would have done what they did, I would have waited until the "full premium edition" was released. There are plenty of other games for me to occupy my time. I actually put Battlefield 3 down for a year and didn't play once, while I played other games.
I miss the days of when you bought a PC game you got all subsequent DLC for free in the form of an Update or Patch. I guess they are trying to squeeze every dime out of us they can. I will not be one of those people. I feel BF3 has a lot of good play in it left and there are tons of games I have on my "to play" list for both PC and PS3. I am an economical gamer and don't usually buy a game until it's $20 or less. Steam and Origin sales are my friend.
