It's real, but it could be an accident, I sure hope so. There's so much content in Battlefield 3 now, that it would take me ages to unlock it all. And with all the DLC planned, I sure hope it's a mistake somewhere in EA's parts.

EDIT: I am looking at it now, I think it may have been taken down. I looked at both the regular and Deluxe editions of Medal of Honor 2, and I don't see it anywhere. Perhaps it was an accident.

Yea i'm doing that, I still don't see it.

Nevermind, I see it now. For some reason the banner wasn't popping up, I had to reload Origin and it popped up. It can still be an accident though, I won't jump to conclusions yet until I hear something from DICE or EA.

This is kind of fast. Only problem is EA just wants money, and if it involves cranking out more games sacrificing quality, they'll do it.

I was hoping for something like a return to one of the Bad Company series, before another major title like Battlefield 4. Maybe Bad Company 3? I really enjoyed the Bad Company series so far.
zeeshan  +   832d ago
I remember that DICE said that BF4 will not come on current consoles. This could be pointing towards either a PC only demo or perhaps a demo for all next-gen platforms plus PC. Either case, I am done with BF3 at the moment as a number of glitches, unbalanced gameplay and idiots who run their server ruined BF3 for good.
hakis86  +   831d ago
Well Battlefield 4 surely won't be out until (fall?) 2013, still I think it's a bit early...
And yes, they have a ton of DLC planned for BF3 so this is a bit confusing... it better be radically improved then, not just BF3 with different textures..

So, lanuchtitle for X720/PS4?
Blastoise  +   831d ago
I love how they went with the whole "Better than Call of duty campaign" thing with the whole "Above and beyond the Call". Now they're planning on releasing a game every other year, you've got the "Premium service" along with terribly overpriced map packs.
Oh dear, I love Battlefield 3 but there's definitely some shenanigans going on here.

Oh snap! I am very worried about the direction dice is taking, seems more and more like they are trying to become cod everyday. Not saying cod is a bad game, it has its place and its not for me these days. But I don't want to see bf become that.

That said, they said they would be releasing the first 64 bit game for pcs in 2013, so maybe it will be bf4?? I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

they did something like this another one of there games (can't remember the name) but the beta its self came out like over a year later...?
MAJ0R  +   831d ago
Well EA, good riddance. You guys have killed so many of your good franchises, first Dragon Age, then Mass Effect, now Battlefield.

I will never buy another new release from EA again (unless heavy discounts are involved.)
Azmatik  +   831d ago
im i the only smart one that realises the games not releasing for a long time theyre just gona beta test a sh*t load durrrrr. is there something wrong with beta testing now? lol OMG must mean BF4 is comin in 4 months LMAO wow ur all so sad

@Azmatik

I agree...BF3 wont be released until fall 2013 at the earliest,So now releasing a game every other year is a bad thing?

Yet MANY of you love games like Uncharted, AC, Gears, Forza, etc and all of those games get released Bi-yearly.

The hate on EA gets beyond ridiculous at times.... What boggles the mind even further is that if it was BF Bad Company 3 , some of you complainers would be fine with it.
StanSmith  +   832d ago
Agreed. Looks like Battlefield is about to become EA's Call of Duty. Medal of Honor one year, Battlefield the next. Just like Blackops one year, Modern Warfare the next.

I can't wait for these Military Shooters go the way of Guitar Hero! Maybe then, we'll get the diversity of genres back into gaming again.
SeekDev  +   832d ago
FPS games can go the route of Bioshock and innovate the genre, but so far, other than a few gems and rarities, that isn't happening. Absolutely cannot wait for Bioshock Infinite though.
StanSmith  +   832d ago
Exactly!

I've got no issues with first person shooters. Just Military Shooters. I mean they always have the same story, same setting etc. It's past the point of being fresh and is one of the genres that I feel have become stale quicker than any genre in gaming.

Games like Bioshock, Dead Island (Zombies are becoming overused, but Dead Island didn't resort to being just like your usual Zombie games) and Mirror's Edge are all great First Person Games that didn't have to resort to "wow look at CODs sales, Let's copy".
torchic  +   832d ago
@StanSmith

who plays CoD/Battlefield for the story?

it's all about the online multiplayer/gameplay mechanics bro.

I'm sorry but if you're still playing those games expecting a nice story then you deserve to be disappointed.
Azmatik  +   831d ago
@torchic ur absolutely right doesnt matter how many disslikes u got online is where its at! and since when is BF the same game with no innovation? last i recall every BF had new amazing stuff
Rainstorm81  +   831d ago
The problem is COD made military shooters stale, IMO Battlefield is a better game (vehicles, destruction, sound to name a few).

But as you said the main problem is the "Me Too" devs that attempt to copy COD's formula, EA is going that route with this new MOH & BF alternate cycle and BF Premium.

I long for the days when more devs were willing to take chances, regardless of the success of another franchise or company
AzaziL  +   831d ago
Just remember how good EA is compared to Activision when it comes to rehashed sequels.... *looks at list* Madden, NCAA Football, NBA Live/Elite/Dead, NHL series, Need For Speed, Command & Conquer, Mass Effect, Dragon Age....

nevermind....
tee_bag242  +   831d ago
I like the battlefield series. I've playing them since 1942. I was annoyed they didn't include a bot mode to practice flying and weapons with. I hope the next installment includes it.
For the people spouting out EA please remember DICE are the DEVS. EA publish it.
StanSmith  +   830d ago
@teebag

Dice are the devs but EA is funding it. EA have more control over the game than DICE do.
DeadlyFire  +   832d ago
This very well could be Battlefield 2143 or something like that. Well I hope anyway. Unless they feel like they flopped Battlefield 3. In many ways they did fail the PC audience.

Although the idea that in 2013/2014 we might see a Next-Gen Battlefield 4 game on new consoles. Is pretty bad ass idea, but I was hoping for something in-between like Bad Company 3 or 2143 like game. Could be a typo. Let DICE/EA announce it before drawing to many fingers. DICE had just stated something about moving towards putting games in the future. I was hoping it meant 2143 was coming.

No. It's how they keep up with cod and keep momentum going. I still trust Dice, even though EA calls the shots. What would b very smart in this economy in which many still play B3 is to make a move into the future and give ppl a reason to buy it by joining one to the other in some way, by allowing ppl to keep what they have earned or reward them for what they have accomplished. If it's in this Gen, it could b a great way to sell alot of copies. Eventually, it will money in this direction.

"I still trust Dice, even though EA calls the shots."
Thats like saying you trust Bioware, Treyarch, Infinity Ward, Blizzard or any of the other development houses owened by EA or Activision, or any other mega-publisher for that matter. Developers may have ideas, but they are forced to follow a single agenda, and whoever holds the purse strings sets it. Don't fool yourself. Look at Bioware's latest blunders, and its not just ME3. Blizzard as well.

well there has been a "battlefield" or huge expansion every year... I don't know why people are acting like this is new from dice.

the point is dice make "a game" every year, nothing new here...
BF4? This is really a console game now.. BF2 had much support for years. Time for EA to shut down servers and sell a new BF game. Console industry ruins basic long term support for games. But then again I get console gamers never knew what that was.

I will stick with planetside 2. BF game battles are tiny.

TheObserver  +   831d ago
You should be because BF3 is missing a lot. BF2 had multiple factions, EU, US, PLR, MEC. Each with different tactics due to their different vehicles and weapons. Each had a memorable battle theme. Now, it is just US VS Russia. How freaking generic. Everyone is a headless chicken in BF3 without a freaking Commander. The Commander is also removed from BF3. Instead of expanding what they have, all the things that set BF2 above and beyond the standard FPS is removed from BF3.

If you don't know what is missing, don't bother calling yourself a fan. Expect BF4 to be further CoD'erized.
Stay-Toasty  +   831d ago
Who the hell are you to tell someone if they are a fan of something or not TheObserver. Lose the self entitlement dude, you don't deserve it. You just sound like a douchebag. I personally think it's a great game. Don't get me wrong, it's not without it issues and the whole rent a server thing needs to just be cut from the game. But Dice are amazing developers and even with all the restraints EA puts on them, I'm sure they will still put out the best possible game they can.

I would rather have Bad Company 3 and let BF4 wait for next gen.
_-EDMIX-_  +   831d ago
Maybe it is. This is on Origin, so its on PC. This was not announced or talked about for PS3 or 360 gamers. Thus the beta is on PC cause the game is only on PC.

BF4 could be on a upgraded version of Frostbite 2, based on how well it looks (DICE has said it themselves that its pretty much there Next Gen engine)

Thus, BF4 is next gen and to some extent the PC version of BF3.

Also, it was probably made fast due to it being made on the same engine. I'm really hoping for BF 2143!
Evolve  +   832d ago
:( I was hoping for Bad Company 3, anyways is good to see what DICE will do with Frostbite 3.0.
TronEOL  +   832d ago
I think everyone pretty much has this down. And my thoughts are exactly the same. "Really? That soon?" I expect a pre-order bonus for BF4 to be a beta for the next Medal of Honor too.

Anyhow, I'm not sure how to take this cycle. The positive side is that both the games are different. So it can't exactly get fatigued the same as Call of Duty, since it isn't the same game being released every year. But, I can definitely see the FPS genre as a whole getting fatigued after this whole thing.
Moby-Royale  +   832d ago
I would really like BC3 please. I was really disappointed with Battlefield 3.*

Bad Company 2 was/is a masterpiece. Easily the best multiplayer game that I have ever played. Also one of my favorite games in the last two generations.

So please, Bad Company 3 instead.

Next time I hope that they keep the destruction instead of adding particle effects and flashlights.

In my opinion, Bad Company 2 was the worst Battlefield game I've ever played, though still good. I had more fun with Bad Company 1, Battlefield 1943 and of course, Battefield 3.

That said, I would like more destruction physics in the next game, but aside from that, in my opinion, Battlefield 3 beats BC2 in every way (controls, fluidity of gameplay, features, the amount of customization and depth to the weaponry and squad perks, map design, re-playability, and just overall fun factor).

But I do hope the next game changes the feel of the gameplay/controls, because as much as I love BF3, I don't want to get worn out on with rehash after rehash as I have with some other games. I hope it feels completely different and new from all the other Battlefield games, specifically I hope it doesn't feel like BC2.
leogets  +   831d ago
it definately wont feel like bfbc2. dice never go back or stay the same. itll be different again and alot better.its what they do. bfbc4 or bc3 im down for whatever.still abit early thoe imo.but theres no date confirmed so probably be 2 years away which is what theyve done with bc series.

Why is everyone acting so shocked? EA wants to be like Activision and have games releasing on a yearly schedule. COD takes 2 years to develop and so does Battlefield and MOH.

Yes, Battlefield 3 still has a ton of content, but so does MW3, they are still getting content drops, but it doesn't mean BO2 isn't coming out in November.

EA has always been the worst company in gaming in my opinion, Origin, Online Passes, Premium, Yearly releases, ruining franchises, ruining developers ect....
