BattleField4 beta confirmed for Medal of Honor Pre-order bonus. Seems a little early to announce this since they only released one expansion for BF3.

#2 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

Surprised it wasn't BF:BC3...I wonder if that might be dead now?0

#3 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7052 posts) -

At first I thought this was just a photoshop or something but The Verge confirms it's legit. What the fuck, EA. Come on.

#4 Posted by wemibelec90 (1557 posts) -

I too thought this was fake at first. Guess it still could be some kind of mistake? Very strange.

Also, there have been two expansions for Battlefield 3.

#5 Posted by composite (132 posts) -

Yeah, seriously. I thought Bf 3 was going to be supported a long time and be the anti COD as far as yearly release cycles go. This kind of nonsense makes MoH and BF look like just black ops and modern warfare equivalents.

Crackdown sales tactics.

Buy the next BF3 DLC to get into the BF5 beta while you play Warfucker to guarantee a BF4 beta code which grants you BF6 sex

is the $69.99 real? i hope that it's not real, i don't want to spend 70 for a new game in the future.

i don't know if i would get the game. 3 was different than 2.

I came into this thread thinking "Are we seriously going to start talking about BF4 already?"... you can imagine how I feel after seeing that pic. :/

Also: : Wow. Way to be the worst thing about the gaming community.

#10 Posted by Vinny_Says (5690 posts) -

who the hell is sitting around bored because he wants to play battlefield 4?

Seriously, someone at DICE better be working on Bad Company. I don't care when it is set....WW2, Vietnam, Cold War special ops or in the damn future....I just want my rag tag team of burnouts getting up to no good driving trucks and stealing gold. Or you know, finish that whole "Russians are invading" thing from BC2 if you want....

Remember when people thought that Battlefield 3 was the second coming of Christ and would save us from the shitty COD games?

No.

No, no, no, please DICE, no...

No!

NO!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Why is the game 69.99?

Edit: Digital Deluxe edition.

#14 Posted by Grissefar (2842 posts) -

BF 4 aka BF 1942 11.

That's funny, given the fact that those games are pretty fucking similar.

#15 Posted by spartanlolz92 (511 posts) -

its probably gonna be futuristic considering that they had easter eggs in bf3 saying 2143.

they may just not want to announce a specific title yet or changed their mind about the title.

So "Battlefield 4 Beta" suddenly means "Everything is done. Battlefield 4 will come out in 2012" 
You guys do know that Betas can last for a long long time, right? I mean, right now I'm even in Closed Beta for a game that's been in development for a long ass time. So far the beta has been going on for 2 years and the game is looking good. 
That's really all I can say about that game though. But yeah, /out-of-a-bunch-panties

#17 Posted by HellBound (1046 posts) -

@spartanlolz92:

I honestly wouldn't mind a sequel to 2142. I really loved the game and concept of it.

#18 Posted by NTM (7269 posts) -

Well, I hope it's not just some entirely new story and it at least adds to what BF3 did. I was a bit surprised by BF3 campaign 'cause I enjoyed it a lot more than I was expecting, that's probably only due to the sound and visuals that helped the game along though. It was fun. I just imagine this being a different story since what happened in three was pretty closed up.

Oh yeah, I'm talking about this like someone actually cares. Maybe the game won't even have a campaign! I probably wouldn't buy it then though... Anyways, I hope it continues and expands on the same characters from the first, although I totally forgot all of their names because they're not that memorable other than voice is visual, and the campaign's a little bit longer.

Whatever, just make another Battlefield with a campaign and make it good.

#19 Posted by SpawnMan (748 posts) -

I really hope DICE isn't turning Battlefield into Modern Warfare. AKA, release a game every six months with less than a couple of changes. I like my Battlefield because it's well planned and isn't spammed! Gears of War has sold out, don't let BF do it too... :..(

Did you know, betas are actually often used for commercial purposes rather than testing purposes? This is especially true when it comes to EA and Ubisoft.

Also, I love how people actually thought BF3 would be some kind of miracle and yet today nobody it playing it. Every time I log into MW3 on PS3, I see the same amount of players or more, as on all BF3 platforms combined. I mean, what happened? There is a real disconnect between the amount of praise and the amount of players, although to be fair, I haven't seen a lot of praise of the game lately. Perhaps people figured it wasn't as fun after all.

Checked right now.

BF3 online, across all platforms: 104k

MW3 online just on PS3: 340k.

In spite of the fact that they sold around the same. And on Xbox there's probably twice as many online. So what happened? Did the tanks get boring or what? Perhaps going 11-8 in a 30 minute match was boring? I don't know, but something doesn't add up.

You have some serious issues, man. 
Why are you so mad that a lot of people, despite all your efforts to say otherwise(good effort though! you get an F for that :D) are still playing BF3? 
Can't you just, you know, play the game you seem to enjoy more?

#27 Posted by Trav (241 posts) -

Pricing the sequel to the failed MW3 competitor at higher than any full-priced "premium" game is a terrible strategy. I already wait for price drops on all but one or two games a year, this is really pushing it.

Wow good point there, man. I guess I just prefer numbers when comparing two things, as they tend to lie less often. My rant was more directed at BF3 elitists than you but I guess it didn't look that way. Ha ! Ha ! As for MW3, I don't love everything about it, but I still managed to put a good couple hundred hours into it so I guess that says something.

So have the five guys at my work who buys 3 games a year. FIFA, Need for speed and CoD. They were also obsessed with Angry Birds and Farmville when those games came. CoD have become so mainstream that you should know that many, many people playing that game are people like these guys. They`re not really interested in games like you and I. The ones I`m talking about here don’t even know what BF3 is, except “it’s probably a shitty CoD copy” (their words).

If you subtract all these “semi casuals”, I wouldn’t be surprised if we, the core gamers, are split pretty much equally between the two. After all, they`re both great games but offer very different experiences:)

#33 Posted by SASnake (312 posts) -

just because it has beta access, dosent mean the beta will even be this year.

#34 Posted by Village_Guy (2498 posts) -

So Battlefield 4 will probably be late 2013 or early 2014, which isn't a horrible timeframe from BF3 to BF4. If people expected the time from BF3 to BF4 to be similar to BF2 to BF3 then it's their own damn fault for being upset about this.

Personally I'm fairly interested in MOH:Warfighter and would like to see a Bad Company 3 instead... OR Mirror's Edge 2 PLEASE!

I could be interested in BF4, but right now, BF3 didn't make me interested in any sequels - especially not so soon - maybe if they go all future, with flying bases and mechs and all that shit.

I want crazy future weapons and vehicles, more interesting / dynamic maps/gamemodes, and I would like people to be more resilient, taking more hits before going down.

#36 Posted by Humanity (8829 posts) -

I got bored with BF3 pretty quick and I played the hell out of both BF2 and Bad Company 2. I think the maps just weren't very good, for me anyway.

you should of know it wasn't that when they started that premium stuff.

Besides at that rate they support it but at those prices you might aswell have a new full priced game every year.

Then that's not a beta. The use of the word "beta" has been twisted beyond recognition, it is supposed to be the final testing phase where you do acceptance testing with people outside the team, right before you go live with your product...not some kind of demo or like you describe a 2 year fiddle-with-the-knobs-fest.

#40 Edited by GS_Dan (1402 posts) -

BF3 is getting DLC support until next March. I see no problem with this.

The beta for BF4, if like last time, won't be until about 2/3 through 2013 with the game itself launching in autumn/ winter. That's 2 years since the last game. That is fine.

BF3 was really fun for me the first two or so months then just go very stale. I had way more fun on the PC and Console release of BC2.

#46 Posted by composite (132 posts) -

@CheapPoison: Good point. Still, I think its the ridiculousness to even mention BF4 when there is still TWO expansions scheduled for BF3. How 'bout let a game breathe a while! Greedy publishers, getting greedier.

#47 Edited by Chojin (107 posts) -

@Grissefar:

I really wasn’t trying to be ignorant about anything:) But since CoD is one of the biggest pop culture phenomenons in recent memory, it also means that it has a huuuge fan base among people who doesn’t play or even care about other games.

As I said before, where I work, I`m outnumbered 1 to 5 against people who has no interest whatsoever to even try anything else. And it’s the same thing at all my friends’ workplaces as well. I`m really not trying to be ignorant about your favorite game here, but this could be a reason why that statistic looks the way it does. Of course I also could be way off, but it’s as good a theory as any:P
