Ok, so I was at Gamestop tonight and I saw some Battlefield 4 promotional material and it was the same stuff we've seen a million times already. Then on the counter I saw this laminated promo-poster.

As you can see it clearly states "3 Playable Factions- Russia, China, and United States" "All Out War! Vehicle Combat and "Commander Mode" Returns

It also mentions the "first expansion" which is "Drone Strike" to be valued at 10$, which is new because all the Battlefield 3 expansion were priced at 15$.


Before you scream FAKE! I did'nt think this was legit at first either, but I asked the GameStop employee where those facts came from and he said EA. So either this GameStop is lying to its customers or this info is indeed real. I was really happy to hear that all three factions are in fact playable, and I know many people want the Commander Mode to return. So big news here guys. Can we get confirmation from EA/DICE if its legit or not?



UPDATE!

Went to a different GameStop and saw the same image! I compiled a video showcasing the images.

I don't see the name "Drone Strike" there, but w/e. . .
The font and syntax of the description do seem falsified, or at least dissimilar to what DICE has used for advertisements in the past. It's still entirely possible that a third-party retailer put this together using sem-leaked info.

Really? they bring nothing unique to the game except VO, and Middle Eastern characters, they use Russian weapons and Russian vehicles. China brings a ton of fresh contnent to the multiplayer sandox, like: unique VO, jets, tanks, helicopters, weapons.

Whoa, that one does look legit. Could be onto something here.
We should keep bumping this thread and try to get some confirmations.

On that note, in BF3 the russian team can play with american m16 and the other way around. new characters and voices adds another deeper dimension to a great game (don't know if you played Bf2 but these guys was great to have in!!!). HADDUR!

Same thing for the british soldiers (in an expension pack) saying "for queen and country!"... and oh, they were also using west weapons.. nothing unique in that... I say bring in a lot of fractions!

That one is legit as far as I know, some people have already posted it before.

Well I know that Americans can use the AK and the Russians vice-versa, but the MEC used other countries weapons and vehicles, unlike China, which is the new faction for Battlefield 4, they bring unique vehicles like the J-20 jet and the WZ-10 attack chopper.

So do we know if China is going to be our ally or enemy? :)

I don't mind Chinese troops at all. Same for Russian, MEC, Euroforces and US (to be honest a bit bored of having them in all the games but okay.. they have a lot of firepower :-)... but I would love to see even more fractions and countries represented (even though they don't have own helicopters)... the more the better!

Enemally

Euroforces should also be in, with they own EU weapons and different ethnic accents speaking french or english or whatever the main language is there.

Probably an enemy, at the end of the 17 minute reveal this is said:



Caller #1: Yep, Tombstone retrieved the intel. And, the Russians would be loyal to a pro-regime. That confirms our report from an asset in China. So, Staff Sergeant Dunn was KIA for... something we already knew. You have your orders, Captain.

Caller #2: Affirmative. Going east coast to China.



Hanna (the asian female) seems to be a defector as an ally to the United States.

Hm... I didn't quite get a good look at Hanna, so I was wondering what she really is. I was hoping for China to be an ally. Otherwise, the story would just be like "AMERICA NO.1 VS RUSSIA + CHINA - YEAH BOI!!!!" Oh well, I can't wait for more infos. :D

Commander in campaign? No.


DICE has already confirmed you play as ONE person through the campaign. So no for the three factions being playable in campaign.
