Battlefield 4 is official, is likely next-gen

Publish date:

Yesterday's rumours were true – Battlefield 4 will be the next entry in the DICE's popular FPS series.

Furthermore, beta access to the game will be granted to those who pre-order fellow EA shooter Medal of Honor prior to its release on October 23rd.

Confusingly, the Medal of Honor site seems to suggest that beta access is only included in the Limited Edition version of Medal of Honor, contradicting the official press release.

The beta will go live in autumn 2013. Notably EA has not specified which formats the game will be released on – PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox 720, anyone?

"Though Battlefield and Medal of Honor Warfighter each offer players a completely unique experience, they are united by their underlying technology base — Frostbite,” EA Labels president Frank Gibeau stated.

These are two of the hottest shooters, coming together to deliver a one-two punch of action, intensity and shooter entertainment.”
