Battlefield 4: People will have to “wait and see” if there will be free modes or maps claims DICE

Battlefield 4: People will have to “wait and see” if there will be free modes or maps claims DICE (Battlefield 4, Dice, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

BF3's replay value for me easily exceeded the invested ~$110 after premium and the retail game...$110 over 18 months worth of releases is completely acceptable for me...

but...there was plenty of ridiculous gimmicks with BF3...the only stuff of any real value were the expansions (one of which, annoyingly, was already included with my launch edition copy)...but 'exclusive' videos, freakin' exclusive images, strategy guides, etc...were as worthless as the 100 megs of space they took up in the first place...

so i hope premium with bf4 approaches the entire value aspect with a more appropriate view of what we actually want...challenges, goofy mix ups of game modes, and assignments are great...a video that will be leaked within minutes on youtube...is insulting...

my only other complaint...was game updates...which took WAY longer than what i would call remotely acceptable...but from what i understand, thats a console specific thing related to the psn/xbl...and PC never suffered the same issue...I'm on PC this time around, so hopefully the update process is less than a 1/10th as bad...

Imo, the images were to worst.

Yes, I'm paying an additional $50, cause I was dying to get a few more screenshots :/

simplygames is currently selling a bf4 + premium bundle for 60 euros, go go go

I completely agree with everything you just said. The "concept art" that was downloadable as our Bonus Content Drop that only happened once every three months was really a slap in the face. I loved BF3, but yeah, the new maps were the ONLY good part of the premium membership.

BF3 doesn't get old for me. I've only played it since June, but I've put more time into it than my past 3 COD games.

BF4 looks like the best bits of BF3, new ideas that couldn't be realized this gen, + good ideas from BF2

^agreed...

especially after the change list was posted for release...plenty of little balance changes that were all needed imo...no more lock on rpg's, m320's are no longer nearly as effective against tanks, etc...

i too enjoyed bf3 a lot, even on ps3...while i'm not buying the 'levelution' stuff just yet, i'm excited to see what its like in other maps...the skyscraper falling is cool, but we all know its something to make some impressive trailers...not so much a huge change from a gameplay perspective...

Aka 'if we make enough money initially, then maybe...'

That is enough for me.

I personally played the beta and im keeping bf3 until i got next gen.

This is the nice way of saying no. I'm glad that all maps for Killzone:SF will be free and I'm gladly supporting such a decision by buying more expansive DLC.

They will probably have to ask EA but knowing EA they will say no.

The maps that they're re-releasing that were on BF3 should be free. Sure they're free for people who pre-order, but they'll charge them for them. Not really fair to charge people for the maps if they were previously in another game. Just like it pissed me off that BlackOps 2 would actually be 3 new maps, and 1 remake. Hell, the last DLC pack was 2 remakes and 2 new maps.

Well I want to see how they look since DICE said that they were reimagining the maps. If they are as good as the Back to Karkand maps then I will pay.

With op metro, they need to make it more destructive and have alternate routes because once B is capped it's almost impossible to do anything (on PC anyways) because it's always just rambo reviving and nade spam lol. On console it wasn't as bad though unless you're playing a well coordinated team.

Well then we're going to have to "wait and see" if I care about BF4 enough to get it. At this rate I probably won't, which is a shock because I usually love the BF series. I'm just not liking the direction EA/DICE is going these days.
Shakes  +   180d ago
LOL. His answer if he drank truth serum before would have been "well I actually had never even thought about that until you asked me just now. I really want to just be upfront and say no, but I feel bad saying that because you know were going to make millions off of this. So instead of saying that, I'll just do what everyone here at Dice does when asked a question not pertaining to levolution, dodge it."

im gonna go on a limb and guess that any free maps will be from older battlefield titles and anything new will be lumped into a expensive DLC.
esemce  +   180d ago
Nothing will be free this is EA people, we get the china rising pre order sh1t that probably should of been in the game to begin with.
ginsunuva  +   180d ago
It comes with the Xbone version at launch, so yeah, it was ready beforehand.
