It's looks such a great idea, and interesting too. I hope it's good!!

People who say they won't use they features probably have never played as commander or squad leader before where you are constantly in the mini map setting goals, routes, dropping supplies, scouting snipers, tanks, etc.

Well what do you expect when they release a game every year even COD with 2 designs teams doesn't make gigantic leaps in a FPS evolution. Building on HALO APP.

It looks like the same game with upgraded skins, and you can now actually see the mini map if you own a smart phone.  Definitely worth the 60 dollars.

Swedish nation sells more bombs, mines and weapons per capita than any other nation in the world. You can shove that BF4 war propaganda game up your war loving arses.

am I the only one who will wait for this to come out on PS4? its like u will buy BF4 on PS3/Xbox360 and about a couple of months(?) later the next genconsoles happen , and most likely BF4 will be part of their repertory... are u going  to buy the game again for the next gen or is there something Im missing? like u all guys happening to be filthy rich maybe?

I use Battlelog regularly to track my progress and to know the weapon damage and to customize it.

IF EA actually has the nerve to Charge 80 freaking dollars for their next gen console. I am going to give them my middle finger and never buy a single thing from them ever again. I suggest you all do the same thing...Why should we pay 80 dollars for crap filled with day one DLC and more rehashed content. BF4 will prolly be one of the last EA products I buy if stays at a 60 dollar price tag.

Battlefield 5 is probably already in the making.

Personally im liking the feel of ARMA 3 right now. ARMA 3 is like going back to BF1942 but with better graphics, massive maps and realism that surpasses Battlefield by a million miles. You can design a Battlefield game mode in 10 minutes. But actually have territorys, not just little flags players hover around, actual territories.

some nice features there but can you substitute a laptop for a tablet and view the minimap there?

All these are nice extra features but I wish we could have conventional in-game menus and server browser back! ;)

So, what if I don't want to be bothered trying to mess with my phone in the middle of a battle? Can I use my normally completely open second monitor to do the same thing? Please?

The ability to change server without quiting looks pretty useful and cool

DICE is going all out for BF4 i love it. Thats called innovation and creating things for everyone instead of copy and pasting and making it Battlelog 2.0 with a new UI. 

it is looking great i cant wait for BF4

How about we stop making BF a crappy modern shooter so it doesn't get driven into the ground like MoH. Take a look back at 1942 or 2142 and implement some of the great aspects from those games into your new games. No easy insta kill knifing, larger maps with more vehicles that are actually fun to use and useful, no more overpriced DLC, let me play with bots, and take away all of the pointless customization such as camo and just let me have fun.

*wakes up second GPU* hey.. it's time to crossfire soon.. this is what i paid your ransom for, remember?

I just really hope they keep up with patches and updates, unlike what they did with BF3. Waiting a few months for patches is just unacceptable, especially with the numerous glitches/op-ness of guns in BF3. (USAS frag, smoke railgun, glitching into walls, etc.)

@phoenix5352: Oh, your wafer-thin smartphone's graphics processing power is way more than a GeForce GTX TITAN on the desktop PC, isn't it? ghost recon future soldier app eh?

@deadpen That'd be weird if you see some elderly person down the street plays BF4 and is actually a lot better than you are.

@nyran125tk some other features of ARMA 3 includes night mode and underwater. Also if you get one kill then you are a pro

@nyran125tk The game may be less arcadey and less of an arcade shooter than say COD, but battlefield was never meant to be realistic. While ARMA is.  Infact correct me if im Wrong but soldiers have used games like Arma for certain training.

@nyran125tk One is a sim, the other is not. They're completely different games.

@fakharakhtar362 oh yeah, like that was never a feature in previous games >_> .......WHY DO YOU NEED TABLETS FOR IT ?? so easy to overlay the battlelog ingame just like steam and origin does......stupid EA

@t3ero2zero Sadly the Wii U can't run the Frostbite 3 engine. It would have been great though.

@NoahRoalson WWII is very limited.  Maps aren't large enough for you? The new expansions added 4 huge maps to the game. Even with 64 players. Knifing isn't something you can do so easily. Overpriced DLC? The expansions added so much to the game, you get a good value. More than can be said for most games.   Who has ever complained about customization...?!

@NoahRoalson Modern FPS games are growing quite old at this point. Then again, I think I am just more into the older Battlefields. I miss BF 1942, 2, and 2142.

@NoahRoalson i think better option will be to take battlefield (DICE) from EA and give it to some other publisher that is not money hoggers.. wait.. that's a myth..

@dirtdog10304 @Nexrad lol... innovation. Another war propaganda game KILL KILL KILL EXPLOSION KILL KILL KILL, innovation my ass.

@varuchi @Armyboy5 it's not regular, he's probably either already had it or just recently upgrading from a single gpu that he's had for quite some time.

What people don't understand about building a rig is that you aren't supposed to have the most advanced up to date gpu + cpu when you first build your rig unless you have that kind of money. You're supposed to moderately upgrade every few years or when you have the money to. 

Heck I'm still doing fine with my Radeon HD 6670 that I got on sale for only $60((that's the price of a new game :D) a few years ago and I haven't come across a game I can't run on at least medium at 60+ fps yet. Soon I'm going to drop some money down on a shiny new Radeon HD 7970 or mabie two 7770 GHz editions with the money I saved from skipping some titles. I can't wait to turn on crossfire and finally use my tripple monitors :D.

Long story short if you really wanted to badly save up for a while and grab a new card or two I recommend AMD/ATi Radeon HDs since they are cheaper and give you more bang for your buck. Nvidia is basically for people with high power PSUs and lots of money that want the latest and most powerful cards.

It's a one time purchase that'll last you all the way into the next gen consoles.

@t3ero2zero EA has said they tried the frostbite engine on the Wii-U and weren't happy with the results saying it didn't run that great. EA have also said that it's not impossible, right now the install base isn't there for them to optimize the engine for the platform.

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2013/07/ea_frostbite_3_on_wii_u_not_impossible

That being said, this is how it goes for console makes that choose to use their own system architecture. The PS3 did the same thing last gen with their system architecture and it was a pain to develop for. Unless you have a large install base it's not worth it to the developer, you need a separate team just for that platforms version of the game.

@DIGN @varuchi @Armyboy5 i almost assembled my dual 7820 pc last month coz after my ps3 broke down i started playing skyrim on my laptop(with 1gb 6670) and remembered those good ole pc gaming days .. but it was too heavy on the pocket..and those missing dll errors are just plain annoying
