Battlefield 4 being shown to retailers

EA shows Battlefield 4 to select retailers; could a public unveiling be far behind?

by

EA has been showing off Battlefield 4 to retailers, according to a tweet from US retailer GameStop.

Could Battlefield 4 be making an appearance soon?

"Got to see Battlefield 4 today and all I can say is WOW! Thanks @EA for the sneak peek. Can't wait for you all to see it," wrote GameStop CEO Paul Raines on the social media service.

EA said at the end of January that Battlefield 4 would be shown off within the next three months,

A beta for Battlefield 4 has been scheduled for later this year, with buyers of Medal of Honor: Warfighter getting early access.

Sony is expected to announce the PlayStation 4 at an event in New York tonight.

Doesn't it suck a person had to by Metal of Honor Warfighter... (spunkgargleweewee at its finest) in order to get access to more spunkgargleweewee. When will it ever end

Need way more destruction. Bad Company 2 had better destruction (and better maps) ---but maybe that is because it had better destruction.

Where's the leaked video? There's always a leaked video.

Unless it's BF1944, count me out. No reason to make another game with the exact same theme.

While BF3 had its annoyances and missteps, I've still enjoyed the game enough to fire it up on an almost daily basis, which is more than I can say for any other game save maybe Forza and TF2, so if BF4 is at least as good I'll be looking forward to it.

Can't wait! BF3 is the best and haven't got bored of it like other shooters in the past. Premium was woth the buy compared to most other DLCs. Only haters complain.

You can offer all the DLC you like companies but I am not paying $100+ for a game.  Overall price of the games and DLC need to be cheaper and if we go to no used games I hope that will happen.  It should definitely happen then.

I guess I should fire up BF3 pretty soon. Been sitting on my hard drive a while now without a decent play session...

Probably going to only get this on PC. PS3 was fine but having only 24 players i think it was total on such huge maps meant people in vehicles usually had a huge advantage, especially if they were good in the helo after they nerfed anti air weapons.

why? why? why not Battlefield: Bad Company 3?! You don't make an awesome spin-off and then just leave it. My opinion Bad Company 2 is a much better game than Battlefield 3. It have interesting characters, good story, and of course humor! Not that i'm not excited with BF4, but should it be Bad Company 3, it will guarantee a buy for me.

BF3 was awesome before they came out with premium...  I really don't feel like buying a map pack labeled "BF4".

Never been let down by a single BF game yet, so definitely looking forward to this one. I could still play BF3 all day but I stopped playing it because of other games. 

I agree that the rented servers suck, but the majority of the community sucks even more because nobody would use their mics in the official servers, and this is a team-based game..very frustrating to just be playing with COD minded people in a BF game...they are completely different,....at least with the rented servers you could easily find games where everyone uses their mics.

Not a fan, but love the effort put into the games. We just might see it for ourselves in less than in hour .......

BF3 was ruined by pay-2-win rented servers. Why play that game anymore when there are only like 5 full dice servers with 25 minutes wait, and the rest are either 1- get kicked by admin for killing him or 2- stupid game mode on Op Metro with 10000 tickets that will take 3 hours to play. BF3 was one of the funnest games I've played... up until they decided to go the EA milking route and ruin it with micros and rented servers. 

Also- BF4 is confirmed to be a modern shooter with the same meta. So be prepared for a COD style re-skin and map pack of BF3 with maybe some mix-ups in the classes, all for only $60 more (not including underwhelming dlc). NO THANKS!!

Is it only me who thought that BC2 was beautiful? The graphics seemed so much smoother and nicer, gameplay was good, i guess, but the destruction was simply awesome. Was quite dissapointed of BF3 really.

As much as I love the Battlefield series, my boycott of EA will continue.

I'll spend my money on games with publishers that want to improve the game industry, not destroy it with ignorance and stupidity.

Still too soon. With the BF4 budget, they could fix the memory leak, fix some maps etc... even bring some dlc with some of cool maps from BF2 even a cross over of BF 2142 leveraging plot features for a possible story link for a BF 2143. SO MUCH could be done with BF3, but nope....full retail price and same era, 'gimme da moneyz' newcomers!!!

Battlefield 4...'cmon... pff.

i hope this game will be awesome, cause i have doubts about BF4

I'd like to see Battlefield 2143, even though I loved Bad Company, I feel it would be unnecessary to have yet another modern war conflict. How would it differ from Battlefield 3 aside from a different locale. It would very much feel like an expansion pack. Sci-fi setting with Bad Company's destruction, creative weaponry, and Titan mode=joygasm.

I did purchase this game recenty and it wasn't all its cracked up to be. While I did enjoy the voice acting; dialogue and what-not, the gameplay itself was a bit weak as well as the storyline. But Im a nut for first-person shooter war games, so no doubt I will purchase this one. However I will wait and check out some gameplay on Youtube, curtesy of the Radbrad.

@gmromero There are many that are not that. Not all users are butthurt idiots who don't understand balancing tickets.

@SergioMX BF2142 blew a lot but I would like to see BF2143 honestly developed into a real game. That game was so incredibly lacking in content and gameplay and servers and anything worth a damn, it deserves another chance.

@SergioMX Your idea is too good for EA or Dice to ever consider it 

SergioMX

@dswyaed24 ...you bought BF for singleplayer? Gotta give you a standing ovation for that one, though not very smart.

gmromero

@GreggD @gmromero Why should I spend 20 minutes looking for a game and swimming through servers just to play a single match? There are other FPS games out there that are just as fun as BF3 but without the hassle, and are more worth my $60. The only way I'll get BF4 is if there are no rented servers and no microtransactions... but this is EA we're talking about here.

@ChiefReaver @Landsharkk I liked Battlefield 3, so I bought it.  So I understand the concept quite clearly, but I think you missed my point entirely.

From that point on I started learning more and more about EA and how they are a viral drain on the game industry.  I no longer support them, there are plenty of other games to spend money on that are not published by EA.

bf 2142 imo was amazing. to say it blew a lot is assinine

@SergioMX @dswyaed24 It wasnt sooo bad. Nah Im joking, it was pretty bad. I did regret it and said to myself, "Bad move on this purchase." Something like the ending of your comment. But maybe they will imrpove on thier mistakes. And atleast i did wait for awhile to get it for 14.99 so not to shabby.

@Fastnova00007 @duron2 @gmromero @GreggD  Oh my! I've upset a bunch of basement dwelling neckbeards who are such retarded fanboys that theyll just throw their hard-earned golds at EA when EA pulls down its pants and lays a huge load on a beloved franchise! Yeah, go back to defending rented servers and unwanted balance patches and boosting on private servers on Battlelog where people might pretend to care. The rest of us have moved on. lol, yeah defend EA and see how many agree with you

@duron2 @gmromero @GreggD As someone who has played Bf3 over 600 hours I can confirm gmromero has hardly played or is not smart enough to figure out the excellent built in server browser.

@gmromero @GreggD What hassle, and what microtransactions?? Have you played BF3 or did we play a different game....

@Fastnova00007 @gmromero @Landsharkk @ChiefReaver Did you just start playing games in 2011? EA has long since ruined the games industry, from mandatory unskippable, annoying EA Challenge your Patience intro screens to their feat of owning the rights to Sports. Flat out owning sports as far as video games are concerned. EA ruins everything it touches, it's amazing Dead Space and the other few good games actually  manage to sell.

@Fastnova00007 @gmromero @Landsharkk @ChiefReaver Do you work for EA? Or just too illiterate to understand the concept of milking in games? Or maybe you just use mom's purse money to spend even more money on games than the $60 you already spent for rented servers, disk locked content, micros, and paid fast tracks. 

gmromero

@Landsharkk @ChiefReaver I agree with the op. BF3 was a wonderful game but EA ruined it with the direction they took it. Yet another beloved franchise torn apart by EA's milking and greed.

@djpetitte Then you didn't play it. Without the expansion it had very few maps, very few vehicles, very few weapons, and barely any game modes, and very few servers to play on. With the expansion, it was still lackluster. I didn't say it wasn't fun, but it definitely blew. If they would put forth the effort to make the game again and take it seriously, with the kind of map variety in BF3, and vehicle/weapon variety, it would be an awesome game.

@SergioMX @dswyaed24 Alright relax. hahaha. Think maybe your taking it waaaay to far my man. Its not terrible and Im glad they did make it for single player. Whats done is done and they may make up for the lack luster of BF3.

@dswyaed24 Battlefield has never been about singleplayer, in fact, it's better if they don't even waste time on it.
