Guarantee Your Access to the Battlefield 4 Beta

Battlefield fans –

The team at DICE is hard at work on the next entry in the Battlefield series, and to ensure access to the exclusive Battlefield 4 beta, shooter fans can pre-order Medal of Honor Warfighter today. While there is no further Battlefield 4 news at this point – remember, if you don’t see it published here, it’s just rumor and speculation – we did want to take this opportunity to share a few thoughts on the state of the Battlefield franchise.

We are extremely proud of Battlefield 3, and with millions of fans out there, we’re happy you’re enjoying it too. When we launched the game, we introduced unparalleled levels of in-game destruction, all-out vehicle warfare and redefined online gameplay. Even with billions of bullets fired and millions of games played, we know the Battlefield 3 story is still just the beginning. As ever, we are humbled by the community’s response to the game, and couldn’t be happier with the feedback we have received to Battlefield 3 Premium. With the Back to Karkand and Close Quarters expansion packs already out, Armored Kill around the corner, and End Game and Aftermath still on the horizon, we’re looking forward to many more hours of gameplay with you, and can’t wait to see the stories you will tell through Battlelog and player created videos.

But we’re not ready to talk about Battlefield 4 yet – in the meantime, we hope you will continue to enjoy Battlefield 3 and all the Battlefield 3 Premium content still to come. We invite you to check out Danger Close Studio’s Medal of Honor Warfighter, which is also powered by the Frostbite 2 engine and the free social network, Battlelog. Don’t forget that pre-ordering Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition (at no extra cost) guarantees access to the exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta.

See you on the battlefield!

    I have a question can you help me I looked for how to open the beta of bf4 it said to look for on my origin but i cant find the expansion when I right click on bf4 digital deluxe edition? >:O

  • xXSUGAR_WAFFLEZX 02.15.13 at 03:04

    Battlefield 4 should be another futuristic battlefield. I’m not just talking about Battlefield 2142, I’m talking about the worlds largest armies ( Russians, Americans, Chinese etc.) with futuristic-modern guns like m4a1 with lasers that shoot out, with all new attachments. and it should be for console or PC. the vehicles would be futuristic and the classic titan mode will be there.

  • LSA55 11.06.12 at 08:38

    For an upcoming Battlefield game can we revisit the Revolutionary War era?

  • perryjay 08.12.12 at 15:32

    I hope Battlefield 4 is going to be compatible with the Sharp Shooter Move controller. It is more fun to play a shooting game with a gun controller. I have never understood why anyone would want to use anything different. It shouldn’t be very hard to update BF3 to work with PS Move. Just fix it already!

  • THE-115-KILLER 08.11.12 at 14:17

    THIS is unfair.
    we paid 4 premium… that would be better if we; premium players could get bf4 beta too!

  • spartan5012 08.10.12 at 01:55

    So with this BF4 beta you are telling us that BF:BC 3 will probably be in the next generation platforms like PS4 and Xbox 720? if so, that would be awesome!

    • InorganicFiber7 08.10.12 at 14:37

      Bf4 will be maybe on the xbox720 and ps4

      • THE-115-KILLER 08.11.12 at 14:18

        there won’t be a ps4 until a unknown date, or more, and rummors say that the name of the next xbox is gonna be called Xbox 8.

  • Vola00 08.09.12 at 21:25

    I won’t preorder MoH, i did it with the previous and never got the key for the bf3 beta and diden’t really wanted the game itself

  • K1LLERHAWK 08.07.12 at 02:27

    Keep up the good work. I’d rather play Bad Company 3 but BF4 is definitely not a bad idea. Battlefield for life.

  • Harry_Bast4rd 08.03.12 at 01:04

    I’m shocked they are talking about this before BF3 is even finished! I’m wondering if this might be the last BF game I play……

  • MR_SKRILLA 08.02.12 at 09:56

    I think you folks are doing a great job. Keep up the good work and attention to detail!

  • ininjasniper 07.30.12 at 08:41

    Wow DICE lost you at beta when I heard it

  • [ZoO][Pig] 07.30.12 at 03:51

    I don’t think it coming toooooo soon !!!

  • firejust 07.28.12 at 21:24

    Im a little bit suprised that battlefield team DICE an EA come out with bf4 instead of bf 2143. Battlefield was at the point were players need to play at a all new gameplay fps and this problem was eliminated while they bring bf 2143 a futuristic game with exceptionnals graphics.

  • Pl2awn 07.28.12 at 16:08

    Dice and EA fails yet again. Not to surprising really, I am not a fan of Medal of Honor. Played the latest one and wasn’t to impressed with it. Sure this one will be the same. But to force people to pre-order MoH just to get BF4 beta access is a bit lame if you ask me. Give that option to all the people that bought the premium for BF3. Look at the bigger picture at hand Dice and EA you made a killing with the premium then you’ll ever make with the MoH that is coming out. Coprate really has no clue what the hell is going on these days all they are after is money in their personal bank accounts.

    • Phantom0288 08.01.12 at 10:53

      Have you even been keeping up with trailers and news about MOH Warfighter it looks amazing and will be well worth the purchase for it. MOH is the Grandfather to all modern fps so give it a chance before you go bashing a game that hasn’t even come out yet.

    what if i dont want medal of honer warfighter do i still get battlefield 4 beta at some point????

  • bgaboys 07.26.12 at 22:54

    The beta should be available to all BF3 Premium members!

  • etytgarcia4 07.26.12 at 07:04

    Great, I have to comment now. I pre-ordered BF3 for my PS3 and it was great. I leveled up to Colonel (50) in exactly two months (Oct. 25-Dec. 25). Multiplayer was lovely and so were the players. The game was good, until I noticed more CoD players were ditching MW3 for BF3. BF3 had a great small community, but EA just had to be money-hogs. I was going to buy the new Close Quarters Map Pack, until it some-what resembled MW3. The guns, the maps, everything was the same. Even the Gun Master mode was a total rip-off of CoD Black Ops’ Gun Game mode. I was really disappointed. Now, don’t go on and say I’m a fanboy, ’cause I just casually play video games. There’s a reason I bought BF3, because MW3 was just a giant Map Pack to MW2. But it’s not the games I’m aiming at, it’s the game publishers. EA has screwed with BF3 for too long. I was expecting a game for me to own, not to pay $15 for Map Packs, $1.50/$7.00/$25.00/$65.00 for Servers, or even $60 for Premium which doesn’t even do anything for the console. I might as well buy the game three times! It’s un-ethical. Even Cod Black Ops has more features that allow me to own the game. Just think, BF3 wouldn’t be BF3 if it weren’t for the Players. In the next 10 years, I will only be able to play Story Mode on BF3, no Split-Screen, no Co-Op, no custom matches on servers because there will be no servers for the matches. Back then, people could buy games and actually own them. Now we have to pay for things we won’t even own in the future. It’s all a giant scam for money. Thank God I just pre-ordered BF3 and got Back-to-Karkand for free. Also, BF1943 was going to be released with BF3, but EA pull it out last minute. It was around late Spring time I received a code that allowed me to purchase the BF1943 game for free, but it was because I joined the EA Community. think about all the other BF3 players who have to buy more stuff because they aren’t part of EA’s “Community”. Just more money being spent. Well I’m done. Thanks EA. But I still like DICE ’cause they’re only the Developers. EA just keeps pushing them like slaves for more money, which takes away the quality of their product. My friend was right, I should Boycott EA. I will now step off my Soap-Box.

    • Bed_Cat 08.04.12 at 05:31

      Dfuq premium doesnt do anything for the console? Cmon dude think before you say something, premium has the same features for all the platforms dfuq

  • MUT3xFamousx13 07.26.12 at 04:49

    i would defentily pefer bfbc3 first

  • Justpassingbye89 07.25.12 at 23:32

    It would be better by buying the premium and get the exclusive BF4. But MoH I don’t even want that game. Another question if DICE can answer it or PSN, Is it true about ps4? B/c it will be totally gay if BF4 is only for ps4 if that comes out.

  • m4n3mk 07.25.12 at 20:43

    MoW sucks. Keep the beta in your shelf, no problem at all here :)

  • willbo1234 07.24.12 at 17:16

    Wtf, that’s just not right what if we don’t like medal of honor

  • ninjaboom 07.24.12 at 14:35

    i hope that DICE will also release another way to get the Battlefield 4 beta other than pre-ordering MoH, as i don’t want to waste my money on a game i won’t play and won’t like just for a beta

  • chekua1 07.24.12 at 04:54

    A map with lakes and swamps where we can dip into the water at least by 30 seconds and also use camouflage, will be good for this game.

  • Kidbuu51 07.24.12 at 04:14

    im not taking part in another beta where everything in it has already been resolved, if your going to release a beta make it so we can actually playtest something for you, if not then just call it a fucking demo

  • Noob Dude 408 07.23.12 at 23:04

    Aside from pc, no way in hell im buying BF4 if it’s only going to be released on the current consoles. Dice had to dumb down a shit load just to make BF3 work on ps3/xbox.

  • Scorched_Earth33 07.23.12 at 20:55

    I am getting the strange feeling that Battlefield 4 is gonna be a huge flop just like Battlefield 3. What happened to the devs? They turned into complete shit. I am not a fan of this game any more

  • Hisgramma 07.23.12 at 20:42

    DICE, EA, you are going to be hit hard if you continue this money-grubbing attitude. And by “hit”, I mean /b/. They are not my personal army. But they are my brothers. And there is bound to be at least 1 thousand that will be willing to do something against this.
    You better not release BF4 before you release everything and fix everything in Battlefield 3.
    I hope you will not have to expect us.

  • Ragnvald83 07.23.12 at 16:59

    Well I can’t wait to play MOH 2 it’s a great game, I also enjoy BF3 very much especially with the upcomming armored kill. Great job guy’s. keep up the good work!!!

  • acajoom 07.23.12 at 13:17

    While reading your post ‘Guarantee Your Access to the Battlefield 4 Beta’ and the how proudly and happily it is written, I notice some things that are even not true at all, that I would like to underline and criticize, not hoping that you – the company – are going to read or consider, but mostly for the people here that gave their money to you – to the company. You will excuse my English, I would be more of a proud man if more were talking/understanding my native language ‘Greek’.

    ‘we’re happy you’re enjoying it too‘

    You are already aware of how many ‘millions’ of players are facing extremely serious in-game problems – reminding you, not only the number of bugs and the so called ‘glitches’, but the level of the problem those are causing, not only to the in-game experience of us players – which results in ‘.. being unhappy and not enjoying it’, which also results in turning it off more or less, but also to the actual level of the game itself, if one always includes, not only the overall graphics and sparkles in order to approve, but also the ‘how the game plays’. If you think your ‘hard work’ on Battlefield 3 is over and that the amazing graphics and shines are enough for you to sit back and say ‘well done’, then there is only one thought coming to my mind: Your target group is the ages between 8 and 16 years old, which do not care much and are happy and exited already with your result, they are making the most sales most possibly – daddy pays – actually they never worked or got tired in their life yet right ?

    ‘As ever, we are humbled by the community’s response to the game ..‘

    Turning reality upside down is a ‘must’ marketing trick. But all I see around the official Battlefield 3 forums, as well as the unofficial ones, is a huge number of problems with this release by a huge number of users/people. I am not going to forget what one friend said in the game chat in bf3: ‘..what’s up with this buggy game..’. I am reminding you that people can raise you or drop you if they decide.

    ‘With the Back to Karkand and Close Quarters expansion packs already out, Armored Kill around the corner, and End Game and Aftermath still on the horizon ..’

    You haven’t only taken it too far already, but you are pushing it even further. I have personally read too many posts from users criticizing the fact that you left the bugs behind and you are releasing exp packs instead. As if you are spraying us to forget what we face in from of our expensive system and screen. Also, having in mind Blizzard and WOW or NcSoft and Linage 2 – or similar – paying to play in such an absolutely ridiculous way, is maybe something you are looking forward to as well. Or you have found a different way that brings cash faster. In any case, if you continue this attitude, I really wish from the depths of my heart, to have a huge fall in the industry and no more future. And that, from the one day to the other, like a slap in the face. And not only to you, but to all those companies that are doing this. I really – really – really wish this.

    ‘Don’t forget that pre-ordering Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition (at no extra cost) guarantees access to the exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta.’

    Does ‘at no extra cost’ mean something there in the parenthesis ? Looks like some wrong copy/paste by your editor. And of course you wish us all to buy your next release – after all – is that right ?

    When I was very young, I heard the word ‘respect’ for the first time, I didn’t know what it means, but I asked. Then I understood what it means, but I didn’t really know exactly who to respect and for what reasons. Then I was told about it in detail too. Took me some years, but now I know. Do you ?

    I watched a very nice Battlefield 3 video on youtube from a very young person, with commentary – as it is a trend, that was criticizing the bf3 cheaters and glitchers. He said: ‘If one person is doing this, then he is like that as a person even outside of the game, in the real life and because of that, I automatically don’t like this guy …’. Well, same goes for a company. Stop cheating and glitching, clean it from your company and by extension from the game.

    If you really want to make the difference in the scene – you or whatever other company out there in this – finally – dirty industry – you already know what you have to do. A good start will be, making some .. ahh, you know, .. ‘changes’.

    I don’t consider a game the most important thing to worry about, but some ‘attitudes‘. All that, from an old gamer and person that loved this game so much, that I was talking about it before it’s release to everybody. You caused both feeling to me. Last taste stays.

    Have a nice day.

  • Gunner_1st 07.23.12 at 10:48

    That’s right, forget the true BF Fans, its all about Greed, and EA making the $$. That’s one of the big reasons we no longer get Mod Tools, its because EA wants to “cash-in”, and sell us the next BF title before the last one is done. They don’t want mods adding longevity to any new BF titles.
    All I know is this…
    since the last patch, there are a lot of servers with lag problems and rubber-banding issues. Its becoming very hard to find a good server anymore that doesn’t suffer some kind of lag or playability issue.

  • Saintz Assasin 07.23.12 at 08:17

    you should really rethink what your doin here . just who do you think is goin to buy your games MOH or BF4 when you wont even take the time to fix the problems we currently have dont get me wrong i love the BF franchise i’ve played most of them but the fact that you would be trying to cram MOH an the BF4 beta/game down our throat right after most true BF3 fans bought Premium with out fixing almost any glitches doesnt make sense. i know the business is about makeing money but if you dont fix the problems you have now you wont have to worry about the ones in the future because no one will be playing the bug infested game. SINCERELY SOMEONE WHO CARES

  • sj_ami 07.23.12 at 03:24

    Unparalleled levels of in-game Destruction, lol

  • Regional_Emperor 07.22.12 at 19:29

    How about you clowns fix the issues in the game you just got us to get premium for instead of doing work on a fucking beta. What the fuck. This is a blatant slap to the face. You have two more expansions comming out, and scores of glitches (some of which have been present SINCE THE BETA COUGH SOUND GLITCH COUGH) and you have the audacity to work on the beta to the fucking sequel? If BF4 comes out within the next 2 years I’m not buying it. In fact, if it comes out in the next two years I will never buy another EA game for the rest of my fucking life.

  • CG_recon 07.22.12 at 19:21

    dear DICE,
    you have my word, if you will cut away normal ingame voip from BF4 – I will collect all my friends and friends of my friends and we will fly to your headoffice and strike there so long as it will be needed to show you – you HAVE to implement normal ingame voip to game which you called “teamplay focused”.

  • xAndrej 07.22.12 at 15:33

    Big idea of the day – to DICE crew: Relax, sit down and think about what you’re doing right now. BF3 isn’t done yet, you’ve still got 3 expansions to finish. Battlefield 4 won’t be around for over a year and already EA is trying to push MoH:W sales higher with promises of exclusive access to something non-existent. Listen, the community has plenty of ideas to make BF4 a better game, but what we’re seeing now is CoDism (release a game on a regular schedule, profit from fame of the first). How about you make a few mailboxes for ideas (I’m not sure if my idea will ever be read if I post it on the forum). I’ve got a whole word document of ideas for BF3.5 (a few changes to make it a bit better – push the tank disable to around 30-35%, some gun tweaks and some other ideas) BF2143 (I’d love to see that), perhaps BFBC3, some campaign cutscene ideas. So, personally, I’d LOVE to see those mailboxes for tapping into the amazing community creativity. PS: BF3 sucked the first 2 months, but now that it’s stable and balanced I LOVE IT.

  • Sting1279 07.22.12 at 06:50

    Couldn’t agree with you more, CG_recon. It appears they’ve adopted the COD model of development … pushing towards the next title release so fast it damages the quality of the current title. I made the mistake of pre-ordering BF3 out of the sheer joy that the next true Battlefield title was coming out. Little did I know I was getting a game that needed significant patches just to maintain basic gameplay. If I’d waited til now to buy it, I’d have paid half as much and not had to go through the frustration of all the bugs that needed repair in the first 6 months.

    I started playing Battlefield BF1942 because it was the anti-COD. It focused on team play, not just “pwnzoring the newbz with dual wield and 1337 skillz” like COD. I know, I know, it’s not possible to duplicate the two best FPS of all time, BF1942 and BF2. But for God’s sake stick to what worked. Teamwork towards objectives is what separated the other Battlefield titles from all the other mishmash of deathmatch spray n pray hell that defines other FPS games. Pandering to the COD crowd who must see a new unlocked flashed on their screen every other round to build their self-esteem is in the process of destroying what made Battlefield great. Pouring hundreds of guns into the game doesn’t make it better, it reduces it to a grind for the next weapon instead of fun team-focused play.

  • CG_recon 07.22.12 at 02:29

    Lags with animation (jump across something and fly 10m from it) – is still there.
    PC still don’t have ingame VOIP – just why?
    Guns are bugged – just SPAS-12 reload glitch, are you “aware” of this and “working hard” to fix it?
    Tonns of cheaters playing every day and PB shows that just 48 cheats were banned in the last 24 hours.

    What do you mean by talking about Battlefield 4 when you didn’t got all problems cleared with BF3 by now, 6 months after release of the game?

    As user and buyer – I’m depressed \ as a Fan of BF serie – I just can’t understand you guys, why are you doing this to this game serie.

  • Saldan113 07.21.12 at 23:26

    Where’s BattleRecorder? No one believes that I gunned down 8 other players within 5 seconds on Operation Metro…

  • MCP-511 07.21.12 at 22:38

    Maybe when BF4 hits the $20 bin at Walmart I’ll be on-board.
    BF3 was the worst pre-order I ever made, and the last.

  • SniperMaikey 07.21.12 at 18:52

    SO DICE, Please LAUNCH BF4 WHEN IT’S READY!!!!! Thanks

  • SniperMaikey 07.21.12 at 18:50

    Haha when I heard this news, I immediately bought Medal Of Honor: Warfighter. and i don’t have to wait because I am still enjoying Battlefield 3 with Armored Kill around the corner. I am very happy that i will get access to The Betá in 2013. I think and I hope thet Battlefield 4 will launch in 2014 in march. then I can ensure DICE that BF4 will sell more then BF3 if they do that because then in march everyone is already done with the new COD. SO PLEASE LAUNCH BF4 IN MARCH AND LAUNCH IT WHEN THE GAME IS FINISHED>>>Loves from The Netherlands

  • DogTagsUk 07.21.12 at 18:46

    I cant say that i am happy to hear about BF4 ,Whys that because i feel that BF3 still needs more loving care and way more patch’s to fix problems that have been in the game from beta .It would seem that DICE/EA are more interested now in just the money and not the fans ,If you was interested in Your fans then you would be micro patching BF3 fixing the smaller bugs like you said you would REMEMBER ! .There was EA back when BF3 was still in Beta making promises we are bringing BF3 to battle log and origin so that we can micro manage patching easier so that the fans wont need to wait for fix’s. Not wait SIX months for the next DLC before getting more patch’s .So for me i feel little let down ,OK BF4 is not going to be out just like that maybe another year or so ,But common get one game fixed first .You guys at DICE must be running round like chicken with out heads ,What should i do next make a patch or work on BF4 .Its clear that you’re going to work on BF4 not BF3 because to you guys BF3 is old news .And for that reason i wont be BUYING BF4 .Fix BF3 then i may buy it .

  • SaarimSHAHID 07.21.12 at 15:38

    BF4 should have split screen in Multiplayer!!

  • namvn 07.21.12 at 06:42

    IMHO, Premium players deserve to have access to BF4 too. Because we are real fans, and support the BF game, the BF franchise, the BF development team tangibly. Hope the team consider my voice. Thx

  • Nirvana43 07.21.12 at 01:39

    it’s too soon to be releasing another battlefield beta. seems like yesterday i was playing the bf3 beta with people flying in the floor and getting the M98B in 5 sessions.

  • mrdrfayce 07.20.12 at 21:41

    Guys chill the hell out… There is nothing wrong with the game other than cheaters, they will be banned and they have no skill anyways. All you people say that this game is a copy of CoD???? how is that even close if anything they are making it more like CounterStrike and imho what is wrong with that, its a best selling game and people still continue to play it after 10+ years. No game I have ever played (I’m 26) has been as realistic and as visually appealing as bf3. My point is if you do not like the game anymore go away and play CoD.

  • UnderToker 07.20.12 at 15:46

    MOH WF
    No prone (again) and a 20 player max on ALL platforms.

    Crap frankly, I wouldn’t pay a quid for it.

  • NaDeR-_BaD_-KsA 07.20.12 at 12:03

    when does bf4 comes out ??

  • m0unty1 07.20.12 at 05:16

    hey just had a flash of friggin genius. let us repel in bf4. maybe have it like parachute feature or instead of a pistol u can get a grapel gun. that would be epic. well maybe not the gun but to repel would be nice theres just some heights that u cant pop a parachute at but still take heavy damage.

  • Ragnvald83 07.19.12 at 18:19

    OMG just saw the new premiere trialer of Armored kill, on youtube. Great video can’t wait to play it!!!

  • TacticalMicrowav 07.19.12 at 15:39

    At least Premium users should get the beta for free

    • Ragnvald83 07.19.12 at 18:21

      I was lucky to play a bit of MOH2 (singleplayer mission) and it’s a very good game so make sure you own it.

  • Adrian07z 07.19.12 at 13:36

    So paying 110 Euro on BF3 and giving you feedback on the BF4 Beta is not enough? We also have to do a preorder of a stupid game to play the beta?

    • TacticalMicrowav 07.19.12 at 15:17

      What you say is absolutely true,

    • brunoq 07.19.12 at 20:19

      I must agree with your question/affirmation… we chose and pay to be premium players so we expect to have privileges like playing the BF4 beta without extra cost. I think we all understand the marketing and the business but there are some expectations on players that should be full field. So the premium community are expecting these “extra” free of cost, and is still possible :)

  • Bush_Killa-73 07.19.12 at 13:23

    So spending £40 on a game after I’ve bought it full price (& it still has input-lag) & you want me to buy another game in advance just to play BF4 BETA?

    This was the least you could do to say thanks to Premium subscribers & all you guys can just f**k right off at this stage. Battlefield franchise has sold-out & become a complete joke.

  • --cLAsic-- 07.19.12 at 06:47

    What i dont understand is why are they coming out with another Medal of Honor before battle bad company 3 . The last medal of honor sucked I really regret buying it, played it for several hours then went back to BBC2, still like BBC2 over all .As for the topic like MR.NICos said below me why dont they give it to all premium members. I sure it will be full of Hack users. I wont be buying it not till they make some attempt to fix the hack problem

  • Mr.NiCoS 07.18.12 at 22:59

    lol why do you have to get moh for it ?why dont give it to al premium members of bf3 ?

    • Chocolate--God 07.19.12 at 13:30

      i think they will give it to us but after moh release.

  • MCP-511 07.18.12 at 22:47

    Regret buying BF3, won’t be buying anything else. Do as you wish DICE, you peaked at BC2 in my opinion and that’s all I bother to play anymore.

    • --cLAsic-- 07.19.12 at 06:33

      I agree with you on everything you said, wish I could of said it first

  • {SA}StayAlive 07.18.12 at 22:45

    What you all need to understand is that it’s all about money, not PC or consoles!

    If you are a PC player who like to play tactical look at ARMA 3:

    This is how you make a game for PC, huge maps, CONFIRMED MOD SUPPORT and over all, a more realistic gameplay, not the arcade style gameplay of BF3.

    Cheers suckers!

  • Zloteusz 07.18.12 at 22:21

    The Beata access should be added to the Premium form Bf3 not the MoH’a. WTF EA/DICE? We bought the Premium.

  • erickt123 07.18.12 at 22:13

    It should be for consoles plus PC.

  • Ace_of_Arms 07.18.12 at 19:44

    SternLX:”BF4 should be a PC only title.”
    Go ahead. see what happens. Their upcoming games depend on the previous games’ income, so since consoles bought more by like triple, and you took that out, PC games would have less since the income would be less, therefore your game would downgrade.

    • Zelectro 07.18.12 at 20:33

      I’ll still be happy, knowing that consoles gets one less game.

  • SternLX 07.18.12 at 15:53

    BF4 should be a PC only title. One platform = less coding paths to support = better overall product. Besides, you still owe us PC Gamers. You never did give us the first Bad Company.

    • SGT_STEPH077 07.18.12 at 17:04

      shut tha fuk bro its a game…and should be played on gaming consoles u idiot

      • stoepsmurf 07.18.12 at 19:08

        did i say only on pc? i said next gen consoles, we got a -16 here… grow up before buying a game boy.

      • Zelectro 07.18.12 at 20:28

        Its a game, that was made on the PC, it should be played on a gaming PC, not a 200 toy.

    • stoepsmurf 07.18.12 at 19:09

      and yes Battlefield must be on consoles 2, because you or your parents can pay a pc doesn’t mean it has to be pc only because you like it on pc.

  • stoepsmurf 07.18.12 at 14:56

    Can’t wait for the Battlefield 4 game. I don’t care if it’s not on the next gen consoles, i will still buy it because Battlefield is #1 in shooters, imo.

  • kaboomderp 07.18.12 at 14:45

    I really dont know who BF4 is going to turn out but my hopes are for frostbite 3 on BF 2143

  • QuasiBoys 07.18.12 at 14:36

    EA is a fraud!!

  • ribnick 07.18.12 at 12:32 – I wrote here an article about this annoncment (in russian)

  • J_A_S_O_N_123 07.18.12 at 12:07

    Fuck you DICE and EA, I actually respected you guys until BF3 happened, looks like it’s all downhill from here, fucking money whores. P.s. we want BFBC3 not BF4

  • SzakiGeri 07.18.12 at 12:03

    BF4 will be available on the recent consoles (PS3 and X360), because the game will use the Frostbite 2 too…

    • Zelectro 07.18.12 at 20:35

      That will mean that the graphics will not change very much, if it comes out for recent consoles with almost a decade old hardware. I think it should be a PC exclusive.

  • JI85AW 07.18.12 at 09:48


  • l Frothy Chimp 07.18.12 at 07:42

    I don’t know about you guys, but this is pretty dissapointing. Yeah I’m sure it will still be a fun game. But really? Are we going to turn this into a yearly thing like cod where the next game is barely better, if not worse because not nearly enough time was put into it? Fuck you EA. Always looking for the fastest way to make money.

  • TheAppleFreak 07.18.12 at 06:39

    Will people who order BF3 Premium receive the BF4 beta? If it’s restricted only to MoH, I think that it would be a very annoying move to players of BF3 right now. Premium players invested $110 in the game, not including weapon packs from Origin, so having to shell out another $60-$70 to play the next BF entry seems a little ludicrous to me.

  • FalseCracMedEvac 07.18.12 at 04:17

    After thinking about it. BF4 better come out on next gen consoles my poor PS3 will blow up!.. Which means the Beta might be PC only

  • FalseCracMedEvac 07.18.12 at 04:14

    BF3 > He
    BF4 > Everything!!!… With that said I still don’t think I’ll be getting MoH just for the BF4 beta… MoH isn’t looking so hot :( lol

  • PARAMVEER 07.18.12 at 04:09

    If anybody buys this 70$ digital pre-order, know that you are killing gaming.

    I feel bad for buying premium now :|

  • sostopher 07.18.12 at 02:44

    So when you say exclusive access, does this mean actually exclusive (as in only people who buy the limited edition get in)? Or just like BF3 where LE owners of MoH and pre-orders of BF3 got early “exclusive access” to the beta (a measly 2 days).

  • alive2009 07.18.12 at 00:56

    just EA ruled up BF franchise so fucked up.

  • CommandoCoyote 07.17.12 at 23:53

    HA, what a joke!!

    I will not be buying MoH nor BF4. Go fuck yourselves

  • TwiztedMannix 07.17.12 at 22:33

    Battlefield 4 should be on next gen consoles! Not buying if it’s not 64 players on console. Bad Company 3 should come out during that time instead of BF4 and hopefully 32 players on console. Also Battlefield 4 should be patiently made and bug free and not an early release like BF3, if in denial at least admit the patches made it look like it was.

    • sostopher 07.18.12 at 02:41

      Your console can’t take it. That’s why BF3 on consoles is so bad, 7 year old hardware has a hard time running the game. Upgrade to a PC if you want to play a PC game.

      • Zelectro 07.18.12 at 20:33

        Agreed, Console gaming is for casual gaming, and should not be given graphically intense games like BF3

  • drumscarinbr 07.17.12 at 22:14

    Medal of Honor came out on 10.12.2010, BF3 beta came out almost exactly one year later (9.29.2011) and the full game was released on 10.25.2011

    Medal of Honor Warfighter comes out on 10.29.2012. By that same standard, BF4 beta will be available @9.15.2013, with game release @10.15.2013. That will set the BF franchise at a 2-year cycle between games. IMO, that’s perfect. Releasing one every year is too much (like COD).

    I’m hoping that next gen consoles will be out by then, I’m sure Sony and MS will be aiming for the holiday season 2013. I just hope DICE is coding BF4 for that new hardware, because the current gens already seemed tapped out as far as their capabilities. I don’t see DICE being able to push the series forward because we’re going to be limited to smaller maps and lower player counts, as in BF3.

  • elcmoura 07.17.12 at 22:04

    well, I love BF3 and spend a lot of time playing it, but I have to agree with the comments that the game still has a lot of room for improvement before launching a new game in the franchise. I have never seen a performance so unpredictable in any FPS game as in BF3. This time I’ll also wait until I get the lower priced game in the stores. I found totally unfair the way you treated players that pre-ordered BF3. Should I have waited a bit longer and I could have gotten the same content for much cheaper. BF Premium is a better deal, but I’d love to see more exclusive content for Premium members. In short, not only the game experience has been poor with BF3, the customer experience for big fans who invest more in the game has not been too different from those occasional gamers who also buy the game. Last but not least, I couldn’t agree more with the comments that a BF4 will have to wait for a PS4.

  • JustDenDimi 07.17.12 at 21:16

    I don’t know what to say, you have a game full of bugs, tons of content to come, another game in the make, and no one wants to see BF4, only BC3… This is just disappointing.

  • SamRock 07.17.12 at 21:11

    I loved every moment of waiting for BF3 after playing Bf2! It was a wonderful to imagine how beautiful BF3 is going to be after having such amazing experience on 2. But I too like many other was disapointed. Limited Faction, no variety in maps, too many bugs, glitches, crashes. No multiple solider (my brothers are hardcore BF fan too, but cant play because of single solider limitation!) and much more! I loved every moment of BC2 and expected BF3 will be atlest like it.. But no.

    And now without address some of the basic issues in BF3 you are already announcing a new game?
    I havent even seen or know about the remaining DLCs! Dont you want us to enjoy BF3 as much as we enjoyed Bf2 before we long for something new?

    Atleast make a BC3… make us “long” for BF4.. not BORE us with an immediate sequel!

  • growking 07.17.12 at 20:48

    wow this is sad. if this game comes out before june 2013 i will not be playing any more dice games you guys still havent even fixed bf3 to be at the expectation level of the people who play it. SHAME ON YOU DICE

  • pourang 07.17.12 at 20:27

    Hi DiCe
    1.” if you don’t see it published here, it’s just rumor and speculation…” We didn’t here it from you first and it was true now because somebody really couldn’t keep his mouth shut.
    2. “We are extremely proud of Battlefield 3…” well, As a hardcore BF fan I’ll be embarrassed on your behalf.

    3. Make a BC3, we’re dying here. Many of us stopped playing BF3 and many of those who play this game are as serious as when you say “We are extremely proud of Battlefield 3…” !


  • drumscarinbr 07.17.12 at 20:24

    DICE, I really hope you guys are working on BF4 for the next gen consoles and that you hold off on releasing it until that time comes. The current gen is too limited and the game suffers because of it. I think that is why the game has so many bugs/inconsistencies.

    We want a true Battlefield game, with higher player counts and maps that are not only 2-3 times bigger than BF3, but that far more intricate. Consoles also need 1080p res. What I mean by ‘intricate’, is that is would be cool to have a HUGE map that contains ALL distinct styles of game play. For example, 3 small cities or towns spread out across a large expanse and each of those cities/towns would contain a close quarters map/type of area, like an entire ‘Scrap Yard’, amongst other buildings as well. In between those close quarter areas, you would have large, more open sections, with varying elevation and terrain, like a Kubra Dam, or Kharg, etc. Conquest flags would exist in both the CQ areas as well as the more open areas.

    I think the PC crowd kind of got screwed this time around too because I believe you guys didn’t want to make a game that was drastically different from console to PC. So while the PC hardware was there to power a bigger game, they got pretty much the same scale as the console.

    I am looking forward to BF4, but only if I hear that it’s going to be “BF4….for PS4″.

  • denjoga 07.17.12 at 20:24

    When does BF3 beta end?

    • drumscarinbr 07.17.12 at 20:26

      Haha……nice. This game does have more bugs than that old dude’s apartment on the movie ‘Creepshow’.

    • x_KOR_x 07.18.12 at 12:15

      THIS ^

  • {SA}StayAlive 07.17.12 at 20:17

    $60 for MOH?…and we get free access to BF4 beta…wow! that’s so awesome!
    So when it’s all said and done, after we pay $180+, we’ll own MOH beta, BF4 beta and BF3 beta(still plays like it). You guys are the best at what you do…collecting full price for 1/2 the game!

  • njrn22 07.17.12 at 20:08

    Dice wait for the ps4 arrived so we can have 32 versus 32 i don t want to buy it on ps3 im tired of the ps3 i want battlefield 4 for ps4 for the frostbite 3 too many problems with the console please dice ps4

    • JustDenDimi 07.17.12 at 21:18

      The game will come out around the time of the next gen consoles, so it will probably come out on those, it would be just stupid to only release it on what we have now (not including PC ofc :p)

    • Ragnvald83 07.23.12 at 17:17

      I agree Dice wait for the PS4 12vs12 sucks and with the upcomming armored kill it will suck even more for console players. Just bought a PC for this game because console is terrible

    • Evil Supremacy 07.17.12 at 20:53

      Really like your idea for regarding the maps and sounds partly like what Dice are going to do with Bandar Desert but taking it to a whole new level, it would be truly epic if they did this.

    • AJBOOMER1 07.17.12 at 21:14

      You could not be more right my friend i would love to see this on PS4 and the new Xbox.

  • XxSnowman_185xX 07.17.12 at 20:00

    thanks dice for every thing! been playing since 1942…all of the games in the series had their flaws but the franchise has been grade A gaming the entire time.

  • {SA}StayAlive 07.17.12 at 19:59

    No money for you…at least not from most of the mature PC community. We were looking for realistic gameplay(or at least the setting to make it “real hardcore” on our servers). We gave BF3 a fair chance but it plays more like an arcade with players running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Instead of Medal of Honor or BF4 we will be looking at ARMA 3, looks like they got it right when it comes to “realistic” tactical gameplay. cya!

  • moodii_77 07.17.12 at 19:23

    come on DICE, u should fix lot of things before this or view more details about Armored Kill at least, and why battlefield 4 beta through medal of honor, where is connection??
    Battlefield 4 should be 4 the next gen. of consoles.

    • treetop_35 07.19.12 at 00:16

      the connection is that the new medal of honor was build by the producer of battlefield 3 frostbite 2 so now there the connection

  • JanEric 07.17.12 at 19:21

    it comes in autumn 2013 likely => 2 years after bf3 so where is the problem ?

  • Baggwell 07.17.12 at 19:01

    You rock Dice!

  • AJBOOMER1 07.17.12 at 18:36

    why BF4 and not Bad Company 3???????

    • HyperBIGBOY199 07.17.12 at 19:31

      Bad Company is a Spin Off and is not part of the main Battlefield series.

      • J_A_S_O_N_123 07.18.12 at 12:08

        What’s your pint?

      • GRAFX21 07.20.12 at 19:01

        and BBC2 was DICE/EA best game to date still. I am hoping for a BBC3 release!

  • Mercenary Nox 07.17.12 at 18:27

    Really DICE? Quickly, adopt Call of Duty’s every other year releases as quickly as possible! Fuck quality, change a couple skins and resell that shit for 60 bucks again.

    • {SA}StayAlive 07.17.12 at 20:02

      Just don’t buy it. After realizing this game becomes more and more like COD I decided not to spend another penny on it and did not purchase expansions.

      • GRAFX21 07.20.12 at 19:04

        exactly. I will not purchase no more untill they make a BBC3 and fix there bugs. To many cheaters/bugs/and still sloppy of a game. (mic issues, squad respawn issues, etc)

        Arma 3 is looking niceeee!

  • XXXX__RICH__XXXX 07.17.12 at 18:19

    See thats the way to do it. :0)
    Feedback, even if you don’t got that much new stuff to talk about. It is just nice to know that you are working on an “issue”…instead of a wall of silence, witch just frustrates the hell out of people..:0/

  • LOLGotYerTags 07.17.12 at 18:18

    Wow.. talk about milking a franchise, We haven’t even got 1/2 of the expansions for BF3 yet or bugfixes or performance fixes or missing features ( Battlerecorder/Spectate ) And DICE is already hard at work on the next game? Come on guys, Don’t turn BF into another COD.
