Two Signs That Battlefield 4 Might Seriously Have Dinosaurs

Whether or not you count yourself as a skeptic, rumors have been circulating that Battlefield 4 will include dinosaurs in some capacity. This would be a rather unprecedented move for the franchise, but not entirely out of left field believe it or not.

While it sounds like a pretty far fetched concept, when you take into account the massive success that Activision has had with the Treyarch-developed Zombies mode in Call of Duty, it seems logical that EA would try to emulate that success in the next Battlefield game.

Here are two pretty credible rumors that suggest DICE really might be including a dinosaur-mode of sorts in Battlefield 4. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

Will buy this if it has Dinosaur's.
Way to finally come up with something semi-original EA!
Blacktric  +   850d ago
I'll buy it when it drops to less than 30 bucks in price. If it turns out to have dinosaurs that is. People have been screaming in their forums for a Battlefield 3 DLC that had dinosaurs... We got 3+ generic DLCs that ended up destroying the game's balance and created a gap between people who had DLCs and people who didn't.

Screw EA and screw DICE.
vallencer  +   849d ago
So screw EA and DICE because they brought content to a multitude of fans who enjoyed it?? Screw them all because you didn't like it nor wanted to purchase them? It's a FPS the DLC isn't going to be super amazing its all multiplayer stuff. The multiplayer isn't that unbalanced as far as weapons go. As far as ranks in matches go then yes it is unbalanced there. It is a little frustrating going into a match as a lvl 5 admiral and playing against level 100.

"it's a FPS the DLC isn't going to be super amazing"

It's amazing that you're trying to justify and defend this.
Blacktric  +   849d ago
"So screw EA and DICE because they brought content to a multitude of fans who enjoyed it??"

A lot of people also enjoy Call Of Duty. A lot of people also enjoy watching Transformers or reading Twilight.

Too bad that doesn't make them any better.
ginsunuva  +   850d ago
But we gave them the idea. They came up with nothing.
SilentNegotiator  +   850d ago
Didn't the part with the dinosaur toy start the whole thing?
Septic  +   849d ago
@silent

No it was a result of 4Chan trolling an Infinity Ward Community Exec (or similar role) when the latter person asked for feedback on Modern Warfare 2.
SilentNegotiator  +   849d ago
...really? Well that's stupid.
Trunkz Jr  +   849d ago
BF3 was probably already being developed when the whole Dinosaurs thing came, would you really want to wait another year just for dinosaurs? At least now that their using an upgraded engine it could be possible to start off right away with Dino's.
Xandet  +   850d ago
Yes please and thank you.
Eyeco  +   849d ago
lol talk about jumping the shark
swishersweets20031  +   850d ago
god no...
Irishguy95  +   850d ago
Why not? I know...most dinosaur games are ****...but..maybe Dice can do an extra mode that does them justice. Zombies are infinitely easier to do well than Dinos...but...still. Dinos always have the potential for an amazing game
Snookies12  +   850d ago
I agree somewhat. I don't want it in the actual story or main multi-player modes. However, if there's a game mode with them? Sure thing!
Ser  +   849d ago
god yes

It would be their best-selling DLC. I would play the crap out of this. DICE + dinosaurs? Yeah, I'll pay for that.

Turok Battlefield Wars!
Jayjayff  +   849d ago
God no... indeed.
That would awfully take away from the battlefield feel. Especially since they're looking for a gritty look, it just doesn't work. I'm not denying they could make it fun, but the game as a whole, would lose its charm.
ahamling27  +   850d ago
I think it would be sweet if they had something like this. Maybe going even farther and making a TDM like Primal Carnage, but with the Frostbite engine.

It would be pretty awesome to slam around as a T-Rex, while the buildings and environment around you are crumbling. :D
Conzul  +   849d ago
Guarantied buy for me if they add dino mode.

I wanna be a pterodactyl and sweep snipers off of rooftops.

I wanna be a chameleon dinosaur with poison gland upgrades and stealth around biting enemy soldiers.

I wanna be a velociraptor with a pounce upgrade so I can ... um... pounce stuff.
rasputiny  +   850d ago
Adding dinosaurs might be exactly what this franchise needs.
LOL_WUT  +   850d ago
It'll be a fresh new take on the series I think it'll be a nice welcome. ;)
crazypenguin08  +   850d ago
Make it their horde mode, fight off waves of dinosaurs. 10/10 would buy
Vladplaya  +   850d ago
Well CoD has zombies, I guess Battlefield can have dinosaur mod.

Also if they really feel like they need to mix Battlefield with dinosaurs, I wish they would just create whole new franchise.

Well when a publisher owns your ass. Your in a sweatshop to make whatever they want you to make.
iRocket  +   850d ago
The singleplayer plot actually focuses on the Russians trying to clone dinosaurs to act as shock troopers for the invasion army. The Asians are helping, and the USA must intervene.

^totally the plot, 100% reliable source
Hufandpuf  +   850d ago
The twist is that you're a dinosaur the whole time.

GOTY. I don't care if it's a horribly buggy mess. The idea of a Frostbite-powered Dinosaur Survival mode has me moist.

I agree.
Also, taste the meat, not the heat.
GABRIEL1030  +   850d ago
I like more if Dice is focusing in more vehicles and weapons, animations and multiplayer...but....maybe could be a great mode.
Zombies sucks!
Dinos Rocks!

KillrateOmega  +   850d ago
So basically Primal Carnage with Frostbite-powered dinosaurs in a destructible, large environment?

So. Hype.
KillrateOmega  +   850d ago
Apparently there's like 2-3 dudes going through all the comments and disliking any comments that support dinosaurs...
Lockon  +   850d ago
Thats probably CoD fanboys stealth disliking everything.
Fergusonxplainsall  +   850d ago
BF should have a dinosaur mode to counter COD's zombies.

I can think of us battling little raptors, dilopasaurus and then the boss T.Rex. Hope it happens.
T3MPL3TON  +   850d ago
It's about fruckin' time. We had that toy in BF3 after we asked if there was dinosaurs.. I want actual dinosaurs that I can shoot and knife kill. Make it happen DICE. Make it happen.
pandehz  +   850d ago
Make it a multiplayer mode with a story.

Battle rages on when Dinosaurs invade.

Jets+Heli+Tanks+M16A3 vs T-REX

Have Terodactyls too, give pilots and engineers a challenge.

Vladplaya  +   850d ago
T-REX gets killed in just couple seconds. As cool as big dinosaurs look and sound in movies, they are really not very suitable against modern weapon systems.
iHEARTboobs  +   850d ago
It's a game, they can make anything work if they work hard enough.
jocomat9  +   850d ago
but how can dinosaurs take out a tank?

Anything but more zombies in games.Dinosaurs are a good replacement.Something new to fight, at least.
hellzsupernova  +   850d ago
And this is coming from a user with the name dayz!
_-EDMIX-_  +   849d ago
of course it is that man knows a thing or two about zombies!
CapsLocke  +   850d ago
Lol, you will get NOTHING! No dinosaurs, just keep freaming and begging. The only thing you'll get is BF4 crafted with the Same old s*it development tool.
C-Thunder  +   850d ago
I want to see some genetically engineered bio weapon style dinosaurs with mounted canons, and laser beams on their frikin heads... Pilotable of course.
It's just BF3.5 so the only thing that is really any different is slightly better graphics. You won't be fighting Dinosaurs in this either. If they were going to let you fight Dinosaurs and such then it would take them much longer to create the next Battlefield rather than just rushing out another about a year later.
Hufandpuf  +   850d ago
BF4 is going to be released 2 years after BF3. COD Ghosts is the one that is rushed out a year later after BLOPS2. Or do you just love being a troll and sounding like an idiot?
iHEARTboobs  +   850d ago
COD Ghosts and Black Ops have different developers, so they both have 2 years of development.
fsfsxii  +   850d ago
You tell the truth sometimes.
Dirtnapstor  +   850d ago
A Jurassic Park meets Battlefield! That'd be sweet! Hoping it comes to fruition, they've been dropping hints.
Quit teasing us DICE and make it official please!
ssj27  +   850d ago
I will like FC4 with a Jurassic park mode.. know that's what's up!
denawayne  +   850d ago
And to think it'll be on next gen systems
Wizziokid  +   849d ago
Dino mode > Zombies for me personally since I'm a huge Dino fan!

They need to do something like this
sackboyhappy  +   849d ago
this would be a great laugh, running from or hunting dinosaurs in a dlc

i was hoping they would add this to bf3 but i don't think it will ever happen because of the amount of work and time it would take, it would be a huge change to the game.
RedDeadLB  +   849d ago
But why with a bow and arrow? Why not have the full arsenal you have in Battlefield? Wouldn't that be much more epic?
leogets  +   849d ago
oh please. we don't want dinosaurs in battlefield surely? what a way to turn a mature game into a kid fest. cmon dice,back to reality please!
Silly gameAr  +   849d ago
What's more awesome then zombies and a little less played out? Dinosaurs. Do it.
Kidmyst  +   849d ago
would be fund if I can strap C4 to a TRex and ride it into battle and blow it up destroying a tank in the process, or Air battles on Pterodactyls and swooping in to pick up enemies and drop them from above.
*Trophy/achievement idea* Flying Dead - Kill 10 enemies by dropping a body from above
Sparticus_1  +   849d ago
I have played battlefield since the original release on pc....and moved up to ps2 then ps3 accordlingly as they were released for different platforms...I play BF because its more realistic...if they put dinosaurs Ill move onto something else...thats almost as bad as zombies in the cod series....this is EA..not Dice I can assure you.
RavageX  +   849d ago
Ok.

This is the most ridiculous $#@! I've heard as of late. No wonder gaming has gone downhill with requests of bs like this.

I think part of the problem is that I expect most current gamers to be around my era(NES,SNES,and up), and I forget that new gamers are appearing.

Gamers now I suspect are the ones who wanna see bs like dinosaurs in top hats with jet packs and other silly nonsense.

I don't MIND that sort of stuff, but keep it somewhere else...like in games that were made for it specifically.
Relientk77  +   849d ago
This would be to counter Zombies for Call of Duty, so yeah they probably will do this
