EA’s Patrick Soderlund promises to deliver ‘something special’ with Battlefield 4

VB - Electronic Arts unveiled Battlefield 4 at a special event this week during the Game Developers Conference. EA has a lot riding on the game, and Patrick Soderlund, executive vice president, is the one responsible for executing on the game’s development and launch this fall. The title depicts modern combat in an intensely dramatic and realistic way. (Battlefield 4, Patrick Soderlund, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Promises, Promises.
Fair enough, make the single player better than BF3. But whatever you do make sure the multipleyer EPIC!!!

Seriously though, just don't over hype and then under deliver.
Yi-Long  +   479d ago
I don't even want anything 'special'.....
... I just want an amazing BATTLEFIELD experience.

Something I felt that Battlefield 3 lacked (DLC extensions not counting).

I loved Battlefield 2 and 1943, and the freedom of play you got with those games.

In BF3,I felt too many levels were too small, too lineair, too much focussed on close-action. There were just a few levels in Battlefield 3 (again, not including the DLC) which very very good, and had that old-skool Battlefield freedom, but levels like Operation Metro and Crossing the Seine just weren't 'Battlefield'.

@Derek
... Yeah, I think I agree with that. I might like Kharg Island even better.

Operation Firestorm COULD have been much bettter that it currently is, if they would have added 2 flags on the other side of the road. Now it's too lineair, sadly.

Not to be a smartass or the typical PC gamer, but they did have 2 more flags on the other side of the road on Operation firestorm

EA has given us a target if all goes bad we can blame this guy!! They must be trying to innovate again! Run for the Hills!!! haha

To me Battlefield 4 looks to pick up everything Battlefield 3 had and execute it 100 times better. Basically the way Battlefield 3 should have done it will be done in Battlefield 4.

If the game is action packed and has a good story with intense moments like the 17 minute video they showed, then they are on the right direction. I'm not even worried about the multiplayer, I know it will be good.

Game developers need to stop making promises they can't keep. Just reassure us you will do your best to deliver a memorable and enjoyable experience beyond your last efforts.

As a gamer that's all i could wish for. If my expectations are exceeded that is fantastic and i will be loyal to your company but if you fail, well we all know why.

I agree developers need to quit over promising and just do what they can to make good games instead of just giving us ear candy.

And what Dice really needs to do is stay focused. Danger Closes latest MOH game was a critical and commercial failure due to there obsession with Cod and its sales. So they made a game they "thought" would capture the COD fans.

I even remember EA playing damage control by holding off reviews for the game.

Anyway, It'll be COD VS BF once again. Lol I definitely won't be partaking in that argument. I'll be to distracted with brand new game announcements.

It doesn't bother me because it's mostly marketing talk. The part that bothers me is they want to convey human emotion, but it's hard to do that when you're mowing down hundreds and hundreds of guys. That's what made the Bad Company series great. The main characters (and the writers) did not take the action seriously. It was almost like a spoof.

Dice you are putting our hopes WAY too high here.........
.....it'll be a real shame if we we're to get disappointed.
Wenis  +   479d ago
The trailer showed the fugly high-contrast/Brown & grey art style they decided to go with, so I'm already disappointed

something special like unfinished game and microtransaction.
IK IR Y IP T  +   479d ago
Grow up ! That's why i love BattleField and D.I.C.E they are humble they know there's room for improvement and they will never ship a game until they fill it's ready, Im glad bf does not have a yearly release and dice knows E.A is fucking up but what can they do ? keep there mouth shut and go to work everyday and please spare me the microtransaction bs im tired of hearing about it 75% of games have them it's 2013 and they ain't going nowhere so ....
andreasx  +   479d ago
I am sure they will deliver.

As long as it releases on PS4 I don't care. As battlefield has always been a favourite with 2142 being the top one. Hope they do a remake of it.
leogets  +   479d ago
wow is this room full of cod players cos I can see only one fella that likes battlefield,the rest of u either still mopeing about bf2 which I'm sorry to burst ya bubble but isn't that great anymore or think u can do a better job
