EA Launches Battlefield 4 Site, Game Footage Coming Soon

Time to hype Battlefield 4.

Though EA announced that it had no plans to put the Battlefield series on a yearly release cycle and pit it in direct competition against Activision's Call of Duty, it's already unveiled a Battlefield 4 teaser page via the official Battlefield website. There's no harm in a little bit of really, really early pre-release hype.

For now, the Battlefield 4 page is empty beyond an interactive image that features a rain soaked window. Users can "wipe away" the rain to reveal a tank in the background.

The page also encourages users to sign up to unlock Battlefield 4 art. "The more fans who log in," reads the page, "the more we'll reveal."

The site also promises that a first look into gameplay will come on March 27th, smack in the middle of GDC. While the gameplay will likely be standard FPS mechanics—but who knows, maybe we'll be surprised—and won't be blowing anybody's mind, it'll also be a glimpse into just how good Battlefield will look for next-gen.

    I bet the medic still doesn't come with defibrillators by default and that this time they'll let you unlock them early by paying a microtransaction fee. It is the EA way.

    why do i feel like the article writer is a retard ? it has been more than a year since BF3 release and they are just showing a teaser. the game could well be on 2 year release cycle which is PERFECT. (you can not possibly want a game to have over 2 years cycle, because that means you do not keep with the time and upgrade your game, it is like saying you want WoW without expansions)

    I don't think it's going to differ much from BF3 sure, the next Microsoft and Sony console are coming out soon but for us PC gamers we actually for once got a far superior game with BF3.
    It's just not going to improve that much for us PC gamers not because it can't but rather they aren't going to focus on that. What I foresee is BF4 on the consoles are going to come close to looking like and with the larger maps that the PC version already has. Add in a new terrible single player campaign with it. Leaving little reason for PC gamers to make the switch.

    I dont really feel the need for BF4 yet.
    Last expansion was released last week I believe and even so, there are lots of new players coming by and servers being started. They can easily keep up 1 year from now.

    On the other hand, as long as they keep improving the Frostbite and releasing a new Battlefield featuring such improvements, I will prefer always to wait instead of replaying with the same graphics.

    Larger squads, no micro-transactions, commander, bigger maps, no pay to earn all gear, more players on map, PC development is priority, more vehicles, future setting(2143).

    These are some of the things I desire.

    please please let there be more than just the F-18, F-35 and SU-35 fighter jets...would like a little more that....say F-15, J-10, F-16, Su-27, mig-29....Certainly don't want it to be like HAWX but it would be nice to have a little bit more variety. Maybe make a skill class system where you earn not just weapons upgrades but unlocks to better jets?

    You're right, my apologies. I forgot that BF3 came out in 2011 and not 2012. For some reason, I felt like BF3 only came out last year... where have all the years gone?!

    Awfully nice for someone calling you a retard. Anywho, I would prefer that the next BF3 bring back the integrated VOIP and game lobby. Despite delivering solid team-based gameplay, the whole experience suffered from the lack of squad and team-based voice coms, and having to launch via browser, which was an intensely frustrating experience. I had constant voice chat problems, and the group of people I played with eventually gave up and switched to TS. Switching servers was also needlessly difficult, and having to launch the actual game executable every time was poor design.

    Bringing those two features back to the franchise would be a great way to get my money.

    I play BF3 a lot and noticed a whole slew of new players at low ranks joining in the fighting probably due to the products sale at Origin this past week and the offer of a free game (one option was BF3 standard ed.) to appease the wrath of disgruntles SimCity (or should that be 'SimShi**y'?) players and so people will continue to play the current release for a good while yet. As others have mentioned the last expansion 'End-Game' was released just last week so there is plenty of new playability left it the 2011 title.

    It is worth mentioning that people still actively play the whole Battlefield franchise of games even though some are a decade old

    as much as i like bf3, i hope they teach the soldiers to step over a few inches of bricks (like the side of the stairs) without the need to press jump..

    but yeah, looking forward to this game, like it better than COD, dedicated servers yeah we need them. hope my rig can handle it

    I'm watching with anticipation how a large part of the sales will go missing when they realize that moste Battlefield vets have learnt not to listen to EAs lies.

    I agree, minus future setting. Making the maps bigger won't really improve things. The problems with the maps were that there seemed to be very limited destruction, a narrow selection of vehicles, and the flags were all in close proximity, so all of that space was wasted. And the maps were all uninteresting with little variation.

    And don't forget the UI was terrible. That needs to be fixed too.

    I want the future setting,mostly because I loved BF 2142 (even more than BF2)
