Gamers are torn between the announcement of Battlefield 4, with some excited and others concerned about the fate of Battlefield 3; either way, EA have confirmed that the beta for the upcoming sequel will arrive next year.
With the abundance of rumours swirling around, EA emphasised that they want to set the record straight on what to expect from the publisher, Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4.
Here’s what was said on the official Battlefield blog:
- The Beta will be in Fall of 2013.
- We are committed to providing an excellent Battlefield 3 experience well into the future, past the releases of Aftermath, End Game, and Battlefield 4. DICE is continuing its work on Battlefield 3 alongside Battlefield 4.
- Most importantly, official details regarding Battlefield 4 will always be made available on Battlefield.com and here on the Battlefield Blog. We expect that the level of interest in Battlefield 4 will lead to a lot of speculation and rumour – don’t fall for it!
EA also revealed some titbits about the “Armored Kill” expansion pack, such as players being able to spawn from gunships, 20 new vehicle unlocks, a new tank-centric game mode, and five new vehicles (mobile artillery, tank destroyers, ATVs) to commandeer. BF3’s player cap will also be staying at 24 on consoles.
