Battlefield 4 to have some sort of “integration” to BF3 and more details — Rumor
Authored by Alex Co
As we get nearer to Battlefield 4′s actual reveal, expect more and more rumors to crop up. Today is no different as BF4Central has an “exclusive scoop” on what they claim are details from DICE’s upcoming shooter.
Some of the highlights included are: there will be three factions (U.S., Russia and “an Eastern/Asian” one), the return of Commander and that somehow BF3 will be “integrated into BF4,” though most likely via through Battlelog only.
Here’s the complete list of rumors and you be the judge.
- Battlefield 4 will stick with 64 players. Maps are larger and more detailed.
- Three factions: US, Russia, and an unnamed “Eastern/Asian” faction.
- 4 classes with “additional features and tweaks” compared to BF3
- Shipping with same amount of maps as BF3, there are plans for lots of DLC.
- DLC is already in planning stages.
- Battlefield 4 Premium will be available on day one and include some perks.
- Most of the guns and vehicles from BF3 will return.
- More squad features.
- Commander feature returns, but won’t be the same as in BF2
- Battlefield 4 is coming out on both current and next gen systems, and PC as well.
- Game is more of an evolution rather than revolution of the series. Both technically and gameplay wise.
- Will ship with more game modes than BF3
- Will ship with more close quarter infantry maps than BF3
- Frostbite 2 engine is pushed further in BF4. Better effects, higher res textures, more detailed game worlds, etc.
- BF3 will still be supported after Battlefield 4 launches.
- There is plan of some sort of integration between BF3 and BF4. Could be Battlelog-only.
- Battlelog will be updated for Battlefield 4 with more social features and more detailed stats.
- Single-player and co-op will return, new writers involved this time.
Again, these are rumors so take them with a bag of salt. Interestingly enough, most of the details listed above are the same leak outed last year on NeoGAF. What makes this more believable is that on NeoGAF’s “rumor list,” it outed the return of Air Superiority in Battlefield 3′s End Game expansion before DICE announced it…which makes us believe that there might be some truth to some of it.
Based on the rumors above, which ones do you hope are true? Hopefully, we’ll know what the real deal is when EA unveils Battlefield 4 on March 26 at this year’s GDC.
