Battlefield 4 launches Fall 2013 — 17 minute gameplay reveal live

At a massive event held in Stockholm on March 26, DICE unveiled Battlefield 4™ with a staggering 17-minute live demo in front of 500 journalists and community members. Read on for the first details on the game that will usher in a new era for the Battlefield series.

We are very proud and excited to have finally unveiled Battlefield 4. At two events – one held in DICE’s home town Stockholm, one in San Francisco – we played the Battlefield 4 “Fishing in Baku” single player demo live in front of hundreds of journalists and community members. Their impressions from the gameplay reveal will start to hit the Internet as you are reading this.

Bringing the best of multiplayer into single player
Battlefield 4 is a seminal moment for the series and for us at DICE. We have long been known for our award-winning multiplayer. This time around, we are bringing the best elements of our multiplayer into the single player campaign.

This means that gamers will experience huge environments, a playground of destruction, access to an arsenal of vehicles, and the ability to direct squad mates – all within the single player campaign. Battlefield 4 is our most human, dramatic, and believable game yet, powered with our proprietary Frostbite™ 3 engine. This is the engine that will let you own land, sea and air.

Watch the 17-minute gameplay reveal
You can view the staggering 17-minute “Fishing in Baku” demo above. The demo begins as the player – Recker – opens his eyes to discover that he is trapped in a rapidly sinking car with three of his squad mates. Shooting the window is the only way out. Panic and fear are pushed aside as Recker makes a difficult decision – take the shot and recover the intel but risk that not everyone will survive.

Join the exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta
We are also happy to announce the upcoming exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta. There are a number of ways to get into this Beta: By pre-ordering the Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition on, by being a Battlefield 3: Premium member, and by being a registered owner of Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition. We will have more information on the exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta at a later date.

From now until release, we will have much more to share with you, and we are looking forward to every step of the way. Here’s hoping that you will join us on our biggest adventure.

Rip Battlefield
Looks like Battlefield 3 full version
BF4 = BF3 DLC!
This will kill cod for sure. I went to black ops 2 for a bit and my word what a stupid game. just run and f*kn gun the whole time. no team work. There is also no variety in COD. in BF3 I feel like yeah I killed someone and in COD it's just like meh I killed that dude. and not to mention it's 100000000 times easier than BF3. Battlefield I feel you need to learn your guns. I'm looking forward to the game. I'm not worried about the bugs cause as with any game there will be bugs. I also like the frostbite engine. One of the best engines to date.
YES !!!!! BF3 + MOH 2012 = BF4
99% same as BF3 XD
I am not amazed. Dissapointed.
hell yeah. hey dice i kno u dont get this a lot, but thanks
Battlefield 4, where is the time to enjoy Battlefield 3 ?! Clearly it's all about the money now, not the Battlefield players.
USAS Frags will rise again!
DICE, I'm disappointed, its like you didn't learn anything. More pointless scripted singleplayer nobody will remember 1 week after, 3D spotting because using your eyes is challenge for normal human beings right? Well I guess it makes sense with all that lens flare and other crap limiting your vision, last time I checked my eyes aren't cameras. Some how I doubt you won't have anything actually new in MP either, maybe commander and ingame VOIP which should have been part of BF3 to begin with but nothing actually new, you will probably force PC to wait months for patches due to consoles again too. No Buy.
yeaaa buddy same knife takedowns!!!!!!!!
That grenade launcher is really going to piss me off in multiplayer
SIngleplayer... Seriously? Compared to the time people will spend in the Multiplayer, SIngleplayer is nearly unimportant...
Anyone else decided not to buy it until the "Premium" version comes out? I don't want to throw away 30 bucks!
So maybe they'll make a meaningful campaign this time?
Now that's a call of duty killer ha can't wait
no blue tint? disappointed
look closely bf3 premium members are getting the BF4 BETA thats awesome !
why cant you just show multiplayer!
So the BETA is sooner then we think <3
2 weeks early on playstation XD
lol nice !!!! if i should of known that BF4 beta didnt need me to buy MOH i wouldnt of bought it :D ty for putting a middle finger rite in my face :)
OMG !! Adeus Vida Social !
Jesus Christ of f**cking grafix video gaems!!!
Disappointed by the copy/paste in this video. DICE could do better. chEAp way to treat customers and fans. Fix it with an MP video before it`s too late.
