New Battlefield 4 game mode, map to be revealed at Gamescom

DICE to highlight upcoming military shooter during German show later this month; presentation slated for August 21.

DICE will show off an all-new Battlefield 4 map and game mode during Gamescom later this month, the developer announced today on Twitter.

"See an all-new #BF4 map and game mode in action during the Gamescom live stream," the developer wrote.

The live stream will take place Wednesday, August 21 beginning at 8:15 a.m. EDT. GameSpot will be on-hand at Gamescom all week. The show runs through August 25.

DICE recently revealed new details about the multiplayer component for Battlefield 4 and reiterated that the studio's hope for the mode is for it to be open-ended and player-driven.

Battlefield 4 launches for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 29. Versions for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are also in development.

If no bots for multiplayer maps to play as single player i wont buy it. The cheaters always ruin online games.

Here is hoping it is BOT mode, Dino mode is also welcomed... games are meant to be fun after all.

most likely all the details about the new "Playground" mode. If it's not about including BOT support, dont care.....

Well, if in a year they release BF4 platinum DVD, like they did for BF3 I'll buy it, otherwise...no.

I Heard My place(Singapore) is being used in the Single player. 

I Really Really Want a Marina Bay Area Multiplayer map :) Google it. It will be perfect

What new mode is this? Capture the flag? Domination? Search and Destroy? *giggles*

BF4 looks great and all, but it seems every FPS game is so hyped up that they preview new maps before the damn game is even out yet. Talk about overkill

Do anything you want DICE, just don't do Zombies.

So, if I buy this game for my 360, will it look or even run like on the XONE? DO I have to buy the game twice? for my 360 and XONE, when ever I buy one?!

@EDFXNights Imagine if the giant building is able to fall into that bottom arena thing with the Frostbite 3 engine. That is true LEVOLUTION.

@19James89 I wouldn't mind playing Search and Destroy in Battlefield. In next gen it will have 64 players.

@GrayF0X786 if you want bots, play singleplayer, or they could add co-op mode but no to bots in mp maps pls

@LonelyHippie27 FPS has been in overkill since MW2 and yet despite this, they just keep on doing well because people secretly enjoy playing them. 

I slate FPS's and then secretly play them at mid-night when nobody is around. I like hiding behind walls with a shotty and blasting away at people who run through a doorway. 

I am the ultimate camper, King CAMPER.

@adders99 I'd rather they had just made 2143.  We've done the "modern" thing a bit too much during the current generation.

@danielcliment maybe in your dreams it could lol, other than looking like pure shit, it should barely run on the 360 or ps3 smh

@CorkeyFord @vackillers We dont know yet... no details on this have been mentioned yet. This is most likely what EA/Dice are talking about when they mention new gamemode at gamescon

@KemistiOMg If you play Singleplayer, you get story mode. what he's obviously asking for is a mode that acts like online, only has bots instead of real players like the classic BF games had.

And i'm up for it aswell

@AMD655 @danielcliment 

thanks for reporting that!, i couldn't figure out how to do that also...

Maybe I didn't explained my self very good, Im not an avid gamer, just wanted to know if BF4 on 360 will run on XONE.

@danielcliment @AMD655 If you don't mind keeping 24 players, REALLY cut down maps, VERY down scaled graphics, and a few things removed, then by all means go for 360. XBONE is worth way more than 360. It's worth waiting for.
