In an interview with Adam Sessler from Rev3 Games at E3 2013, Battlefield executive producer Patrick Back announced that Battlefield 4 will be released for PC and current-generation consoles on October 29th in North America. The DICE FPS will be released in Europe on 1st November and in Australia on 31st October.
Battlefield 4 has already been introduced as one of the launch games for both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 upon their anticipated releases towards the end of this year; ready for the holiday season. However, the game will be available on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 at the end of October 2013, allowing gamers to enjoy the game before the release of the next-gen consoles.
Battlefield 4 will expand its online multiplayer experience as gamers can now play as three different nationalities: U.S, Russian and Chinese; a huge development on the two-sided American/Russian games in Battlefield 3. Any Battlefield fans who played Battlefield 2142 may be excited to welcome back the ‘Commander Mode’ that requires tactical orders and strategies; setting the FPS game apart from others available on the market. The online games will also be expanded to allow 64 player games, which shows us just how big we can expect Battlefield 4 to become.
The campaign takes place in both Russia and China, and is the first Battlefield game to be set in the future: the year 2020. Trailers of gameplay are available that show immersive story lines to come, as you control US Special Operations soldier Recker who is part of a 4-man squad nicknamed ‘Tombstone.’
The most recent instalment of the Battlefield series – Battlefield 3 – was released in late October 2011 and was generally well received as a follow-up to Battlefield Bad Company 2. I sincerely hope Battlefield 4 keeps the improvements going while maintaining the fundamental features that have made the series so successful.
The question is, will you buy Battlefield 4 in October, or wait for the release on the PS4/Xbox One?
