Next week, you’ll take a step back in time with Battlefield 4 Second Assault, featuring four fan-favorite maps from Battlefield 3 — Operation Metro, Caspian Border, Gulf of Oman, and Operation Firestorm — reimagined with Frostbite 3 graphics. Battlefield 4 Second Assault will be released on February 18th for Battlefield 4 Premium members on PS4 and PS3, and for all Battlefield 4 players two weeks later on March 4th.
Greatness awaits on the battlefield. Starting today, PS4 owners can experience Battlefield 4′s 64-player multiplayer battles, running at 60 frames per second. Powered by DICE’s Frostbite 3 engine and PS4, Battlefield 4 features stunning visuals, dynamic Levolution moments, and the return of Commander Mode.
It’s an exciting day for both Battlefield fans and the team at DICE. After years of hard work, we’re finally launching Battlefield 4 on PS3. Whether you’re bringing down the hotel of Hainan Resort, or flooding the streets by blowing up a dam in Flood Zone, it’s our hope that you thoroughly enjoy the all-out war of multiplayer, and the thrilling journey of the single-player campaign.
These are exciting times for Battlefield fans, and everyone at DICE! Today, we’re releasing the Battlefield 4 open beta on PS3, and we want you all to join. Simply by taking part in the beta, you’ll help us test the servers, online functionality, and gameplay to make sure the PS3 launch on October 29th goes as smoothly as possible.
DICE’s upcoming Battlefield 4 has captured the attention of military shooter enthusiasts for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the game’s promise of 64-player multiplayer warfare running at a smooth 60 frames per second on PS4. At Gamescom, I got some hands-on time with the first PS4 build of the game — we were among the first group to play the PS4 build outside of DICE. Here’s a quick after-action report.
On stage at E3, DICE Executive Producer Patrick Bach unveiled a whole year of great Battlefield 3 content. If you didn’t catch the press conference yourself, we’ve got the details for you right here!
Our biggest news is the launch of our massive content offer, Battlefield 3 Premium. If you buy Battlefield 3 Premium, you’ll also be able to download and play our latest expansion pack Close Quarters today. That’s two weeks earlier than non-Premium members on PlayStation 3, and one week earlier than Premium members on other platforms thanks to the early access that PlayStation 3 players are getting!
Hope you are excited to go Back to Karkand! With the PlayStation Store update later today, you will be able to buy, download and play Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand on PS3. To celebrate launch day, here is an all-new gameplay trailer showcasing Wake Island running on PlayStation 3 hardware. I hope you like what we have done to this classic Battlefield map, and that you enjoy your one-week PS3 exclusive head start on this expansion pack.
Once you have downloaded Back to Karkand, the four new maps (Wake Island, Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, and Sharqi Peninsula) will be available in the server browser and in the Quick Match filter settings just like the nine maps from the base game. There will be servers that mix and match maps from the base game and Back to Karkand, so you will never have to commit to playing either base game or Back to Karkand maps in your gaming session.
