Battlefield 4 Prattle Feed For All The New News

By John Walker on March 27th, 2013.

Look, you can see the big dipper!

Tonight EA lured us in to a darkened cinema, on the promise of news about the only-just-announced-even-though-everyone-knew-about-it-for-ages Battlefield 4. But while we knew it existed, we didn’t know what it might contain. Um. Yeah, about that…

Teased: Battlefield 4 Will Have Boats, Awful Slogan

By Nathan Grayson on March 22nd, 2013.

And/or rusty desk fans that have been thrown into the sea for some reason, which is another thing I've always felt was missing from Battlefield.

On principle, I despise blink-and-you’ll-miss-it brief, nearly information-free teasers. Unfortunately, they’re also almost exclusively the chosen language of triple-A publishers these days – at least until they open the floodgates on enough footage to spoil the entire game a month before it comes out. I would, however, be remiss if I didn’t mention that a) Battlefield 4 very clearly exists and b) year of the boat (the previously discussed year of the bow successor) sails ever onward, major franchises crashing against its monolithic hull like brittle kiddie pool waves. Watch both of the thus-far released (ugh, argh, grr, bleh) teasers after the break and pluck delicious, delicious proof from the pudding.

Battlefield Battle: BF3 To Be Supported After BF4’s Launch

By Nathan Grayson on July 28th, 2012.

Come on, Soldier! You've got a giant multi-million dollar gaming corporation waiting for you back home.

EA’s policy with sequelized franchises tends to mirror that of an over-excited puppy or me when I’m talking to anyone and an over-excited puppy prances into view: out of sight, out of mind. Servers quietly disappear, DLC dries up entirely, and empires (mostly of the sporting variety) crumble. DICE, however, swears the same fate won’t befall Battlefield 3. It’s going strong right now with Armored Kill, Aftermath, and Endgame still on the way, but apparently, their end won’t signal the endgame of this game’s endgame. Endgame!

Battlefield 4 Is Really Real, Beta Next Year

By Alec Meer on July 18th, 2012.

INCENTIVSE INCENTIVISE INCENTIVISE INCENTIVISE INCENTIVISE

Just in case you thought I was pulling your leg/was a gullible tool when we posted about the apparent leak of Battlefield 4, EA have stopped pretending it didn’t happen and officially ‘fessed up. They’ve confirmed that, yes, people who pre-order Medal of Honor: Man Who Fights Wars will get priority access to the beta of the next Battlefield, and that’s scheduled for ‘Fall 2013.’ Which I’d be willing to guess suggests a release date of October or November 2013, as has been EA and Activision manshoot tradition for many years now. But I might be wrong. I often am. Why, I was wrong about something only yesterday.

Honour The Call of Battlefield 4

By Alec Meer on July 16th, 2012.

I know what you're thinking, so no, please don't photoshop this

That is a picture of my face at the precise moment I first read that there was probably going to be a sequel to a first-person shooter that sold millions of copies.
