We are ready to start talking about Battlefield 4: Final Stand, and we have a lot to talk about. In the Battlefield 4 Premium video we released a few months ago, we gave players their first glimpse at the high-tech action that awaits. In the weeks ahead we’ll also show you a lot more of that monstrous little drone and the other exciting new toys that will be in Final Stand.

With Final Stand, we knew from the start that we wanted to evolve the Battlefield experience and offer weapons and vehicles that behave differently than anything else on the battlefield. Taking place on the artic landscape of Russia, where the scientists of today are experimenting with technology that will define the battlefields of tomorrow (Battlefield 2142, anyone?), Final Stand will deliver four maps that are unique and distinct. With its military installations set against a wintry landscape, expect intense, infantry-focused combat.

Players will also discover secret prototype weapons and vehicles that further tie into the fiction around Final Stand, and to some extent the Battlefield series. This includes a Battle pick-up rail gun that fires a single round of powerful kinetic energy, and the hover tank prototype, which uses eight experimental jet propulsion engines to nimbly move around the battlefield. We have a few more surprises up our sleeves that we’ll share with you in the weeks ahead.

We definitely had a lot of fun designing these maps and the future-tech weapons and vehicles of Final Stand and hope you guys have as much fun with them as we do. That’s why we want you to start playing them now. Starting today we are going to be testing pre-release versions of the Final Stand maps on the CTE (Community Test Environment).

The amount of feedback we’ve been getting via the CTE has been incredible, and is a tremendous asset to the team here at DICE LA. That’s why we have decided to bring the community into the process even earlier as we reach the finish line of Final Stand.

Starting this week we will run servers with one of the four maps available to play per day – starting Tuesday September 9th.
The number of player slots and servers will be limited – so not everyone with access will get a chance to play this time around.

This is the first time we have ever done something like this at this early stage – and we hope it will mean a more stable and higher quality release in the end!


Taking part in the CTE



We know a lot of players out there want to take part in the CTE, so we have opened up the number of available slots on the CTE.

As previously, you will need a PC Premium account to sign up, visit http://cte.battlelog.com [cte.battlelog.com] for more information about what is happening on a daily basis during this week.

See you on the Battlefield!

Are you kidding?!? Are you seriously kidding right now?

After DICE LA working so hard at fixing BF4 to the good place it's on CTE now,
this is going to be your legacy?

The game that in my book seemed to be the game to be played for the next decade if not longer,
due to every competition going to futuristic/police theme whatever, this was graphically updated BF2, finally.
Every single other dev has gone to futuristic shooters and even so futuristic military shooters,
this was the one game that didn't, which was the thing keeping this game together, until enter Final Stand.

Rail guns, hover tanks, who knows what imaginary gadgets..
The maps look great, they look exactly something Battlefield has been missing.
BUT implementing a vehicle (hover tank), battle pickup (railgun) and gadgets that cannot even be removed via plugins by server admins, to actually get to play these maps in BF4 not BF2142 mode.

After slowly rebuilding the trust to this franchise from the disaster of a launch it finally seemed BF franchise can be again trusted and a lot of thanks for that go specifically to DICE LA. One announcement and all the hard work is now gone. Could just wait to put those things in BF2142 sequel that the regular non futuristic Battlefielders could just avoid, no these gadgets are now usable in all the maps. Thin silver lining is that the battlepickups and hover tanks won't be, but that's a very thin lining.

I'm done.

Since DICE is adding loads of futuristic crap i'll also want them to add a cloak. Futuristic mechanic attack dogs. Plasma gun. Exoskeleton. Jump suits. Pleaseeeeee!
Vehicles aren't OP, the player is OP. Noobs are just underpowered. DICE stop screwing balance because of people that don't know how to play.

Why is the inclusion of a a few minor futuristic elements such an offence?

I actually thought it paid off buying premium. But apparently not since I don't own a pc. Will they be doing this with other cosoles later?
