There is a rumour going around that a teaser for BF4 will release to BF3 premium members this week ahead of the full unveiling on the 26th at the EA press event. Apparently someone found a set of dog tags in a database that reads "I was there" that you supposedly get after watching the video

Also the little image beside the dudes head has a picture of a city and a tower, this is that tower 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_Pearl_Tower

The tower is in Shanghai further speculating that the game involves China which would fit into other previous rumours

Some of the other little images show a snowy mountain, some explosions and some water so nothing else much

That boxart looks like crap, mainly because it has the same exact theme as bf3. I was really hoping this new bf would be a sequel to 2143 or a new bad company. I think bf3 has enough content to last at least another year, like seriously why buy a new bf in similar setting with less maps and modes when bf3 has 29 maps and i think 13 game modes.The only way this would not be pointless is if it offers 64 player online on next gen consoles.

Why do people still insist the new BF game was gonna be 2143 or BC3? It's been confirmed for months that it's BF4, even when MOH:W launched they had access to the BF4 beta. 

Sure it will be very very similar to BF3 but that doesn't mean it can't be good. BF3 is good and this is likely gonna be a more refined and focused evrsion of those maps and games modes absed on what people play the most. And yes next gen consoles will likely have 64 players on them, it would be stupid not to have that

Depends on the bandwidth limits - it's not just a question of more memory, but also fitting within the maximum permitted bandwidth usage to pass certification.

Sorry I was not insisting anything, I was dreaming it would magically turn into one of those games.I am all for it if destroying things is as good as it was bc2 and if it had just as much content as battlefield 3 w/ premium, which I highly doubt. They will really have to blow my mind to buy this game.

Nice one. The DICE guys said they weren't gonna reveal the full boxart because someone else was gonna leak it anyway. Seems like it was true. Not sure what I make of the dude though, obviously he's important cos he actually has a face and not some helmet or anything like that. Probably their lame attempts at SP again

Yes sir, likely will involve China as a MP faction too instead of straight Russians vs. US. And China will likely be in the SP a lot too. There are also snowy mountians and a close up of someones face in the little orange images too.

Full reveal still set for the 26th.

Tho I wonder what they mean by a "new era" for Battlefield. Could be an indication of many significant things.

Set in China for some of it and coming to next gen. Here is some more info that apparently leaked in chinese and got translated. I have no idea what lasagna is lol Also these are likely fake as some of it sounds really dumb

Lasgana: BF4
Lasgana: Coming October 23rd, 2013
Lasgana: development just started, expected to be done in 1 yr [Nirolak's Note: Since this is the one likely to elicit the most "this is fake" notes, I feel I should elaborate. Given some later points (like already have an internal demo), this seems to refer to EA's normal two year development cycle of a one year pre-production cycle with ~30-40 people and then ballooning up to 150-300 people to make the game after most things are prototyped and planned out. Visceral, BioWare, and a fair number of publishers outside EA also operate this way since it allows you to have multiple projects without cyclical layoffs due to scaling down in pre-production and scaling up in production. For example, during the downtime between Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3, DICE's spare staff worked on making Medal of Honor's multiplayer and helping to build Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit. As to what the bulk of DICE's staff worked on prior to this going into production, it's probably either a second project or, once again, other EA games.]
Lasgana: will be on pc, ps3, xbox360 and next gen consoles
Lasgana: will be one of the first games for next gen consoles
Lasgana: commander system comes back
Lasgana: profile can be linked with other devices like ipad
Lasgana: auto login, need internet all time, support cloud saves
Lasgana: easier to pickup the game, to take care of players from CoD
Lasgana: support body and voice control for this commander system
Lasgana: better battlelog integration and better stats reporting
Lasgana: supports video playback and sharing
Lasgana: have gem store for dlc and other stuff like that
Lasgana: 3 factions: russia, usa and china
Lasgana: can deploy female soliders
Lasgana: frostbite 2.0 engine
Lasgana: pc, ps4 and xbox 720 supports 64 player maps
Lasgana: 360 and ps3 will be less
Lasgana: pc, ps4 and 720 will provide 60 fps
Lasgana: already have a demo video internally within EA,
Lasgana: matching the quality of BF3 already
Lasgana: bf4 will use 80% of power of frostbite 2, wheras bf3 only 30-40%
Lasgana: modern background
Lasgana: i mean story background

EA are running the risk of franchise fatigue, like for real. Sequels after sequels is just a no no, Battlefield is a well respected franchise but to go the COD route with it just aint cutting it. Also isnt it better to make a WWII or Futuristic themed battlefield game rather than this MW setting, cause looking at the info so far; i feel no sense of hype at all

I kind of liked BF3's SP *runs for cover*

 

It seems that I am the first to notice a big spoiler in this picture.

 

The picture towards the middle at the top, is a picture of Shanghai, with the under construction Shanghai tower, which will be completed in 2014

I'm glad too since it's been long overdue to fight the Chinese again, lol. I'm also glad they're putting snow maps from the start.

Not much we can do about it is there? At least BF4 will look better as it will be on a better running version of Frostbite 2 and will be visually impressive. CoDs problem is looking the exact same as well as playing the exact same every time. if it at least looked different people might attack it less. Doesn't affect the gameplay but that's never gonna change much if you have a good formula anyway. 

And yeah maybe older or newer settings would be cool but also changing location to China is a big thing in itself

Bad Company was easily the best they did last gen,BF3 is complete crap compared.

Setting the stage in China is not much different, a change in location that could be interesting is perhaps dealing with multiple settings.....Lets say event from WWII is cross mixed with events in the MW and then unto a future setting. While this does sound like BlackOps2, it really gives Battlefield room for flexibility in impressing its audience cause the contrast of battles waged in WWII-MW-Future War would feel very different enough from each other. Who even knows, they could bring it to multiplayer as well, where you have different Maps in different War settings, it would make multiplayer matches interesting because some elements of War types would require players adapt their skills to the different time frames.

Maybe im alone with my wishes, but game developers need to challenge the harder things rather than do a ctrl+C game alova again

Nice one dude

I designed part of Shanghai in CE3 a while back, aside from that, I am working towards a degree in engineering with a emphasis in architecture, so I know most major skylines pretty well.

 

______________

 

Back on topic: loved BF3, the game is probably the best looking game to date next to Crysis 3, and the gameplay is fantastic. So hopefully BF4 is just as good.

 

While some of these complaints are warranted, designing a game isn't easy. Sometimes you will make a completely different game, but a city setting suddenly makes it a crysis 2 or MW3 clone. Dice is a good dev, but EA seems to be holding them back. EA is probably the reason we didn't get to mod BF3

Bad Company 2's levels didn't have the level of detail that BF3 has. The enviroments in BF3 are bigger and more diverse, so it's harder to keep the same level of destruction.

Assuming Microsoft doesn't show off the Nextbox before than, this means they'll be showing PS4, PC, and if the stars align and everything possible works out perfectly, Wii U? Interesting. Also, why are they doing an entire event for it. O.o
