EA and DICE have revealed Battlefield 4 to the press tonight during an event in San Francisco, CALIF.
So far, the graphics look stunning, and with a full 17-minute gameplay trailer expected tomorrow, we can only imagine what else Battlefield 4 will have in store. For the time being, the official Battlefield 4 website is now live, and a few screenshots of the upcoming shooter were leaked before the site was taken down.
“We are so humbled and proud to debut Battlefield 4 on a global stage with simultaneous events in San Francisco and Stockholm. To be this early in development, and to already be so polished is a huge achievement for the DICE team and reflection of their passion and commitment to driving the franchise forward. Today’s demo was just the beginning — we have so much more in store,” said Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President, EA Games Label. “It is thrilling to witness peoples’ reaction when seeing the game for the first time. It really makes you realize that we are at the beginning of a whole new era for gaming. As artists and craftspeople, we are focused on creating a dynamic, open design that brings people together with amazing, surprising unscripted moments that they’ll talk about for days. That’s the beauty of Battlefield.”
There is no date for the game, but rumors suggest that a fall 2013 release date is possible. Sources also said that pre-ordering the game at specific locations will net you some goodies including a set of dog tags from GameStop, as well as special DLC codes for the game. Even though we do not know what the codes are for, we can confirm that they are for use with Battlefield 4 when it ships.
Be sure to check back with us when the full 17-minute trailer goes live March 27.
