Battlefield 4

Recommended Posts

EDIT: Additional clarification

Things that we recognize that there is a serious desire for, including but not exclusive to:

  • A better VOIP solution
  • Battle Recorder
  • Spectator Mode
  • More robust eSports support


correct me if i am wrong, but it seems to me that most of that was said about BC2 as well

They still owe me for that last turd that they disgracefully titled "Medal of Honor". This latest one is an automatic pass on. Or an automatic "go to hell", if you prefer.

Your not wrong.


What they did was reneg post launch, and told us Bc2 was not a true "Battlefield" title (except for the "battlefield" part that was in the title), therfore we were in error to expect a battle recorder feature we came to expect from our favorite franchise.


Bc2 had VOIP but it did not work 95% of the time.


They'll probably fire all the CM's and bring in new ppl to blow smoke up our collective asses, just long enough to get the pre-orders secured.

DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson took the stage today at GDC Europe where he shed some light details on Battlefield 4 and the Bad Company series.


For those who were hoping that Battlefield 4 would be taking place during a different time era, you’ll be disappointed to know that DICE will be sticking with the Modern Day setting.


“We still want to stay in this genre, the modern day as it is. We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful.” Karl said, “There’s a lot of things inspiring us as to how the franchise will move on. Everything from fans’ feedback, to market research and, of course, what we want to build ourselves. It’s not just one single thing.”


And speaking of the Bad Company franchise, Karl did touch upon this, however it wasn’t anything really new from what was said in mid July of this year. He explained, “that doesn’t mean there might not be a Bad Company game again in the future.”

Rumour mill


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

Whoever was playing that character in the SP was a moronic idiot. Couldn't shoot for shit. And I didn't find it particularly interesting to be honest. I only care about MP, I haven't even played SP in BF3.


Wake me up when they show some MP footage.


And I'd hang fire on the pre-order. I managed to pre-order BF3: LE for £19.99. It'll happen this time round too or I'll just take a trip to India :D
