  • X-_-GENESIS 06.10.13 at 22:32

    Suggestion for battlefield 4:
    Multiplayer Mode: Day and night
    Maps go from dawn to dusk and then night, as the time goes on in the match the sun moves from one side of the map to the other. In the beginning the sun faces at team (b) and later in the match it does not favor anyone because its noon. Towards the end of the match, the sun will point towards team (a). At the end of the match, the map will be a night map. It creates an even balance between sides and complements to dynamic weather.
    Ps. Battlefield 4 nailed it on the head with delivering the ultimate fps experience.

  • SFAL 06.10.13 at 21:39

    So, what about those of us who have pre-ordered BF4 for the 360, what happens if and when we get an XB-One and need to switch over to that version of the game?

  • grandechat 06.10.13 at 17:10

    The multyplayer demo is already out?

  • heyheyezz 06.09.13 at 15:22

    can play multiplayer?

  • ALIKEY13 06.07.13 at 09:35

    Only one question,brothers:NO PS Move again?:

  • evankeanu 06.07.13 at 05:14

    Although BF4 will most likely be better on PC, I don’t think DICE or EA will optimize BF4 for PCs. I mean, PCs aren’t where everyone is buying anymore. I think DICE and EA will be focusing on next gen consoles because that’s where they’ll make all of their money.

  • evankeanu 06.07.13 at 05:11

    By the time next gen consoles are released, their parts will already be outdated. Unless Microsoft or Sony plan on putting Nvidia 660s or AMD 7000 series cards in consoles, I don’t think consoles will ever be up to par with PCs, ever.

  • JCR504 06.06.13 at 15:53

    Will there be Planetside 2 style gameplay?

  • Glenn37216 06.04.13 at 09:11

    Dear Dice. What your showing here doesn’t look as good as the Crytek 3 engine. Please photoshop some new tech in there so the kids here can get excited about it . Thanks !

  • SEVENOFONE1 05.29.13 at 23:35

    Those Riggs are something to behold I am in a state of shock seeing them just amazing and I must add jealous of them all. just amazing gys thankyou for showing them

  • NinjaApe101 05.28.13 at 17:35

    How about you put this on the Wii U? I can think of tons ways the touch screen would be helpful. It can be used to pick spawn points, show the entire map while playing, order squadmates, and seamlessly pick your kits. Other developers are finding the Wii U to be superior to Xbox 360 and PS3.

    • Shrapor 06.04.13 at 00:14

      Pick Spawn points on the map? They haven’t even re-introduced that in bf3 yet…

    • UND3AD SAMURAI 06.04.13 at 00:51

      You’re a special kind of stupid aren’t you?

    • JCR504 06.06.13 at 15:55

      No. Wii U can’t handle Frostbite 3.

    • Branbran64 06.08.13 at 23:18

      Yes, yes yes and yes

  • Indignant Yeti 05.27.13 at 20:00

    My question is: Can XBox 360 people play with XBox One people and can PS 3 and PS 4 play together?

  • KingVeezy415 05.27.13 at 11:22

    Im ready for Battlefield 4

  • Indignant Yeti 05.27.13 at 07:59

    For the love of god I hope the campaign isn’t some stupid “flashback” story. Why do game developers use this stupid type of storytelling on such a regular basis? BF3 had a ridiculous COD type story.

  • Bush_Killa-73 05.26.13 at 20:49

    If I’d a decent PC I’d likely play on that but it has to be PS4 (8 gigs of DDR5 WOO HOO!!!) for me & ALL my mates as well. Please don’t make BF4 more like COD again & go back to your PC roots as much as possible. Thank you & that is all :)

  • TROLTASTIC 05.24.13 at 22:28

    The explosions in Frostbite 3… AWESOME!!!

  • ZeplinWolf 05.24.13 at 07:01

    haha A lot of people are making the move to pc I believe. I’m one of them.

  • X_xMaMaMia 05.24.13 at 05:01

    Why the “China Rising” is DLC…. why more DLC….
    if you guys are already finish the game, why don’t just put it in BF4

    • TROLTASTIC 05.24.13 at 22:20

      Because they did so well with bf3 “Back To Karkand”.

  • skslayer7 05.24.13 at 04:41

    Very excited 4 this! And i will most likely be getting the Playstation 4 for this amazing game!

  • CrushRx 05.24.13 at 03:03

    Clearly, the people saying that pc gaming is dead- you’re off the mark by just a bit there…

    • TROLTASTIC 05.24.13 at 22:26

      That confuses me too, look at the facts people. -Major PC gamer.

  • wardindon 05.23.13 at 23:32

    I hope this time the game will be controled in the server side. Bf3 use to much important things in the client side and thats explain the huge amount of hack or weird lag.

    Btw please take the time to think about some playable map for jet. A montagne or a place to hide is important again stigla or heatseaker

  • psycotroop 05.23.13 at 21:50

    Although I believe PC is where its at, None of my friends or family have a PC good enough to play Battlefield 3, so 4 is out of the question. So I guess I will get it for the 360 primarily, and get the PC version later on, Though I don’t really like playing on my own….

  • dmceneaney 05.23.13 at 21:12

    I will not be forking out for a new ps4 or Xbox one until I find out if Sony or Microsoft have any sneaky tricks up their sleeves such as preventing you from reselling games or swapping with your friends. If they start this crap I am switching to PC. Also if Sony are wise they will keep the play station network free….I’ll also wait and see if bf4 gets some good reviews before buying. Most of the bf3 DLC’s were not great so there is not a strong incentive to throw your hard earned money at EA for a pre-order. Once the net gen arrives, let the raping of consumers pockets begin!

  • Ry_mann88 05.23.13 at 21:12

    I plan on getting it for PC primarily but if the majority of my friends get it on PS4 then that’s where I’ll be spending most of my time.

  • Jesse165 05.23.13 at 20:29

    I will probably wait a year or two to get the Xbox One so sticking with the 360 and/or PC version.

  • CSharp-vS 05.23.13 at 19:43

    I need play it…. *-*

  • Ranmza_Beoulve 05.23.13 at 19:19

    I hope you guys at DICE are looking to the pool and never again do what was done with BF3 and release the expansions and other stuff first to consoles. The core fans of the game plays it on the PC.

    • Ry_mann88 05.23.13 at 21:13

      While I do agree they should prioritize PC gamers, sales point out that the ‘core’ fans are actually on consoles now.

  • Cpt_Khattab 05.23.13 at 19:05

    WHEN The Beta will release ?????????????? PLEASE!!!!!

    • TROLTASTIC 05.24.13 at 22:24

      Speculated to be around late August or early September.

  • kkn_ 05.23.13 at 19:05

    code for PC’s and THEN downgrade to consoles, just watch the poll.
    the consoles cant outperform a pc no matter what they say.
    and implemate the spec mode so one can dodge out the hackers…

    • narutouzimaki444 05.23.13 at 21:20

      If you payed attention to the console, you would know that the new consoles will be on par with an average gaming PC. Yes, some people will have better PC’s and I agree that they should downscale for the consoles but the consoles will at least be able to keep up, if not surpass some PC’s.

      • evankeanu 06.07.13 at 05:10

        By the time next gen consoles are released, their parts will already be outdated. Unless Microsoft or Sony plan on putting Nvidia 660s or AMD 7000 series cards in consoles, I don’t think consoles will ever be up to par with PCs, ever.

  • Valkyrie-73 05.23.13 at 18:59

    so EA are you gonna just do your publicity for XBOX One and fight against PC users see the result above yourself and decide :D

    • interpolpirate 05.23.13 at 19:03

      This guy knows. PC is the way to battlefield! PLEASE remember us when you’re mapping out controls! We have >100 keys so REALLY don’t need bipod and ironsights on the same button. Number of times I’ve been shot because of nonchalantly deploying the bipod on some random object instead of aiming at the enemy is beyond count.
      Other than the odd little gripe like that, I do love the game so keep up the good work :)

  • tehKD 05.23.13 at 18:45

    meh, old news is old
