Battlefield 4 Rumors - Female characters, platforms, release date, commander role, voice commands

DSOGaming writes: "Okay Battlefield fans, time for some rumors about the fourth part of this acclaimed series. ChipHell‘s member ‘Archangel’ has shared some new details about DICE’s upcoming FPS title, details that are said to be coming straight from EA’s chinese team that participated in an internal Battlefield 4 conference. During that conference, the alpha version of Battlefield 4 was showcased and according to the American employees of the chinese department, Battlefield 4 is powered by Frostbite 2 and will stress this engine at 80% (it was said that Battlefield 3 pushed only 30-40% of what the engine is capable of)."

I figured that it would be next-gen. I just hope it isn't Battlefield 3 running on more powerful hardware with a 4 after it, change it up a bit DICE!

Yi-Long1390d ago

... not 'Battlefield of Duty', which the last one was.

I really love the proper Battlefield gameplay, but Battlefield 3 had too few REAL Battlefield maps where you had that great Battlefield 'freedom'.

christheredhead1390d ago

I agree. That was my one main complaint. Far to many maps were essentially a hallway by design. You had a straight line to move forward or backward on and that's about it.

This is the problem with EA. Even when they have something that's awesome, for some reason they feel the need to streamline it towards their main competitor's product.

GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD EA!!!

If your product is similar to your competitor that already owns a majority market share, you're not going to win any new customers over. This is marketing 101, do something unique that sets your product apart from your main competitor!

so according to this rumor battlefield 4 is going to be like the battlefield that came out in 2005 minus mod tools....

joy

That's what people started asking when BF3 was first announced. Look what we got.

But, I hope this time they learn their lessons.

@papashango

The way it should have been all along. An actual sequel to that game that came out in 2005.

I might actually want to buy this new one and kick ass on it.

JasonXS121390d ago

Yea, the maps had a lot of useless places that only campers would ever go to. Also putting the game into environments with large buildings or enclosed structures really ruined the destruction aspect compared to BFBC2 where the whole map was destructible. It didn't have the feel of BF2. Frostbite looks alright but not great as everyone says. The movement aspect of BF3 was the worst part to me. The legs jumping over stuff just limited the efficiency of quickly jumping about.

interesting. it seems if true, the console war would really heat up with both the ps4 and xbox720 launching in the same year.

john21390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

the interesting thing here is that if the tentative release date is true, PS4 and X720 will hit streets on October 2013 (and that BF4 will be a launch title). However, this seems unlikely IMO as these consoles will most likely be revealed in E3. An E3 reveal means that both MS and Sony will need 6 months at least to prepare for a launch (and that's an optimistic scenario). Perhaps EA will release the current-generation version on October and delay the next-generation version? Or they might delay all versions of BF4.

blue_cheese1390d ago (Edited 1390d ago )

there are a few articles about how microsoft has already started production on the xbox720.

I predict Fall 2013-Spring 2014 for launch of both consoles.

Production numbers will be key to keeping it from selling out. Microsoft knows this and they are preping early. Not a bad idea.

dazzrazz1390d ago

Also game will require year after the release date patching due to the fact EA had to ship to fit into holidays window and battle call of doody modern warfare 4. Up to %80 engine efficiency wow.... does that mean we will be missing audio in vehicles even more ? lol :D Current battlefield was nothing more than a $90 entry beta if you got into whole premium thing :>

ninjahunter1390d ago

Gotta compete with da cod.

LPH241390d ago

How can current-gen handle BF4 if its using more then twice of the power of BF3? I can't wait to see this...
