EA holding Battlefield 4 event March 26

Publisher to "celebrate a new era of Battlefield" later this month at San Francisco presentation coinciding with Game Developers Conference.

Electronic Arts will hold a Battlefield 4 event March 26, the publisher announced today. The event will "celebrate a new era of Battlefield," the publisher said in an invitation sent to media.

The presentation will take place during the 2013 Game Developers Conference, slated for March 25-29 in San Francisco, California. No further information was made available.

EA announced Battlefield 4 last July, revealing a beta for the game will launch during fall 2013. Those who purchased the underperforming Medal of Honor: Warfighter are guaranteed access to the beta.

Battlefield 4 may not be the only new franchise entry in the works. A report from May suggested series developer DICE was at work on a new entry in the spinoff series, Battlefield: Bad Company 3.

Forget Battlefield 4, bring on Bad Company 3... for a spin off series I liked it better that Battlefield 3.   I thought Bad Company 2 had better Multi-player than Battlefield 3, but that's just me.

Battlefield 3 is so great! Let's hope 4 isn't just another upsetting sequel.

TBH I think if EA were to release BF3/BF4 on Steam as staggered releases, they would see a lot of BF hate melting away in no time.

I still play BFBC2 as it's the best BF on Steam and so do a lot of people.

Don't get the BF3 hate. You have so much more freedom in that game than you do in Call of Duty. And it feels like a real battle. And everybody knows what to do. You don't even need a headset. But COD is just run & gunners ragging on eachother non-f*cking-stop.

I've been tired of online shooters for a while now, so hopefully BF4 can do something to get me back into them since 3 took up a lot of my time, maybe I'll check out its DLC before nobody plays the game anymore.

I bet it will be sick on next gen consoles. Its a way better game than COD. How people like spawning in 10 feet from a guy in a map the size of a shed on one of battlefields maps......  is way beyond me.

BF3 was released at October 2011, when BF4 will probably come out at early or even middle 2014. It is space of almost 3 years. Deal with that and stop moaning "why already". They make games for money, not to fulfill your wishes. Hope to see Bad Company 3 as soon as possible.

Seriously, why does everyone hate Battlefield 3 so much? It's a great game, and a rick-rolling franchise. Why doesn't everyone egg on the other games that come out every year, like sports games and Assassin's Creed...? Seriously, if you don't like the game, Don't play it! Done deal!

i'll pass....bf3 last only 6 months. then everyone abandoned it. not enough servers, hackers, glitchers, and everything just doesn't make sense for them to continue for 4.

Bring back the modding, this would make BF4 an instant hit (it's what made 1942 and 2 great).

But I don't think it will happen :(

Fuck you EA.


Yeah, I know it's childish to say that. But it makes me feel better.

I hope people don't get suckered into buying MoH:Warfighter just for the beta.

Why does every damn game have to come out every year? I don't want this bullshit CoD model. I want games that have been worked on and actually CHANGE and IMPROVE. Gaming sucks now. I miss the ps2 era more and more.

It took 6 years for BF3 to come out after BF2. What is this travesty, EA?

All this Bad Company 2 love.  I liked Bad Company 2 well enough, but I didn't put anywhere near the hours into that game as I have into BF3.  I really don't see the need to have Bad Company 3 and Battlefield 4.  One or the other in my opinion.  What I'd really like to see is a follow up to 2142.

Hoping this is next-gen exclusive; if so it'll give us a good indication of what PS4 will be able to push graphically in its early years.

If it's being released on current-gen systems, I immediately assume it's a milking attempt from developers. (confession bear)

I am really hoping that BF4 ends up being just as good if not better then its predecessor BF3 with all the gameplay mechanics we BF fans have come to love left intact. That EA don't insist on BF4 being more like a CoD clown. That said, absolutely loving BF3!

Origin only? EA servers? March 26th is Fucks Not Given Day.

Never was a fan of BF, always preferred CoD, but since that BOII was crap (imo) I'm going to watch this to see if it's worth playing.

I would come to the event, but I  just realised that I simply hate your company to much to bother. Have a nice day.

carbon copy of bf3 coming right up. Go to hell EA

Actually, the amount of time released between BF3 and BF4 is longer than the time between BC2 and BF3. BCF came a year and 5 months later, and it's already been that since BF3 came out. Basically, Battlefield 4 will have about 2 years between it, which is longer than the time between Bad Company 2.

Did EA recently hired people from Activision/Infinityward? I think two years should be ok, it all depends how many hours you give playing the game.

Idk, I really want a BC3, but two Battlefield games in quick succession?  Thats just not how battlefield works.  These games need a lifespan of 2-3 years in my opinion because they community and content need to grow imo

but Im still playing BF3 :P

its actually one of those rare good EA game (they happen, see dead space 1 for example)

Do not buy Battlefield 4 if it only having 24 players on consoles. I bought Battlefield 3 for xbox 360 and nowhere near as enjoyable as Bad Company 2.  Maps were just too big for just 24 max players.  Half the time playing BF3 i was just driving/running to a battle. IMO

A lot of people seemed pissed cause they're releasing a new bf game already, but we gotta know that this is next-gen, way better graphics, physics, animations etc. in fact we wouldn't mind if they showed us a new cod game, especially since they milked $1 billion from the franchise, it'd better be darn revolutionary..

TheBatFreak777
TheBatFreak777

And by "new era" they simply mean that the game will have the number 4 on it.  Revolutionary!  Innovative!  And, er, more of the same.  Can't wait...
