Battlefield 4 Xbox One version and October release date confirmed

Update: EA says that October 29 launch date does not cover Battlefield 4 Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions.

Update: EA has contacted GameSpot to clarify that its October 29 release date for Battlefield 4 does not cover the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. The PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PC versions of Battlefield 4 will be released on October 29 in North America, and on November 1 in Europe.

Battlefield 4 will be released on October 29, EA and DICE have confirmed.

EA also confirmed that the game will be released for Xbox One, hours after Microsoft finished announcing the next-gen Xbox at its Redmond campus in Washington. EA announced a partnership with Microsoft at the unveiling.

The publisher also confirmed that DICE would be bringing Battlefield 4's multiplayer mode to E3 2013. A Battlefield 4 multiplayer beta will be available later this year.

DICE also confirmed that customers who preorder Battlefield 4 will gain access to Battlefield 4's China Rising DLC, which is set in the Chinese mainland and offers four additional maps and new vehicles. The developer offered a similar inventive with its Back to Karkand DLC for Battlefield 3, which was later offered for sale individually and as part of Battlefield Premium.

Battlefield 4 will also be released for PlayStation 4, PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. The game will not be coming to Wii U.

This is one of those things were you really wanna play the game on day one, but also want it for the next gen console. But I really don't wanna buy 2 copies of this game -_-

I'd remove the singleplayer completely from BF4, never played it in the last game and went straight to the multiplayer, if they concentrate 100% on the multiplayer, it will be much better and officiant.

I wish that it was 2143 instead.  They should have not done two of the same game in a row (Bad Company was OK, however).

I dunno. BF4 kinda looks like more of the same. If they add anything of value to the multiplayer, and don't totally fuck up the singleplayer (I seriously thought that BF2's SP was better than BF3's, at least the SP in BF2 let you practice), then it might turn out to be a decent game, but so far I'm not very impressed. I hope they at least try to do something unique.

Ok so this wont be for the next gen consoles. Why would they do that, console gamers are just gonna get screwed again by having to play Battlefield with 24 player matches and smaller maps again. Or they could wait a few more months and everybody would be happy.

"October 29 release date for Battlefield 4 does not cover the Xbox One and PlayStation 4" - "The PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PC versions of Battlefield 4 will be released on October 29" So, which is it? is it coming out on October 29 or not?

They only say this in an attempt to keep the new consoles release date a secret...even though its no secret.

Error. On the Battlefield 4 Gamespot page it says that Battlefield 4 will be on WII U when EA aren't making it for the WII U.

BF4 I think is something to be really excited for, since the fact that Dice are releasing content in comparison to BF2's multiplayer. China Rising DLC, Commander mode; there's a lot to be had here.

I keep imagining ONE disc.with Multiple system compatibility..  IE put that BF PC version (with a ps4 and x1 logo of compatibility) into either console and voila .. it runs, given console specific hardware patches

why not since they both have pc architecture :/

I wonder what major differences there'll be between the next gen and current gen versions of the game. If the only difference is player cap and better graphics, I think I might as well get the PS3 version.

Well I'm not going to get it on the Xbox 360 and then also get it on the PS4...I hope the release gap isn't too large.

How does this make any f-ckin' sense?! They first say it doesnt cover the PS4 version and then they say it does? Either EA is talking out their ass or the author is damn idiot

yah all they have to do is just change the box of the game disk, from PC to PS4 to X1, since thy are all THE SAME F*CKING CONSOLE.

Will the new PS or Xbox have more than 24 players this time round though? I'd much like to see 64 players like on PC.

@toshineon"kinda looks like more of the same" is a strong statement when the most important part of the game, the multiplayer, hasn't been revealed yet.

@netter99 Battlefield 4 is coming to both the Xbox one and PS4, only they may come out until November. My guess is both consoles will probably be released in November.

Hackerrei, learn to proof read before you post. Your sentence doesn't make sense.

@mediaraysNothing to be confused about. REMEMBER when PS2 came out  and they still made the same games for PS1? Its the same thing. There will be a version for the next gen and also current gen consoles at the same time. Class over.

@Huskypaw Thanks for sharing with all the strangers on Gamespot. I decided not to go to 5 Guys for lunch today, no need to announce it. We're supposed to take notice because???????????

player cap makes a huge difference in Battlefield, just look at BF3 on ps3 compared to PC.

@icepop4who why is that?
in 3 years the PC versions of games will look better than the consoles versions and the PC will be the top platform again, though im pretty sure that until that happens the PC versions will run worse and be less optimized. 
however i am playing the PC version of games for the mods. there isnt going to be anything as amazing as what GTA and The elder scrolls have on the PC, not to mention other nicely modded games like Red faction: guerilla, just cause 2, FC3 and many other modded games.

@Spartan_418 @toshineon True, of course, I can only state something based on what I've seen so far. But as far as screenshots goes, it really looks a lot like BF3. But, like I also said, if they add something to the game of value, then it could very well be a good game.

@GrayF0X786 That's true, but I think the game plays well enough on PS3 with 12 vs 12. By the way, I'm probably not gonna get the PS4 right away, but I do wanna play BF4 as soon as I can, so my best option probably is to get it for PS3.
