Battlefield 4 Announced [UPDATE]

7/18/12 4:00pm

[UPDATE] - Battlefield 3 community manager Ian Tornay says that there will be other ways to get into the beta, but pre-ordering Warfighter is the only way available at this time.

He also clarifies that DICE will continue to support BF3 as intended, with all map packs through 2013. They assure that because a new game was announced, they're not removing all resources from their current games.

"DICE and EA are dedicated to continuing our support for Battlefield 3. Just as we've continued to support and maintain Bad Company 2, we intend to continue providing the best Battlefield 3 experience we can well into the future and past the release of End Game and Battlefield 4."

On Electronic Arts' Origin service last weekend, a teaser image popped up for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, saying that pre-ordering it will get you a beta code for Battlefield 4. The image was quickly removed, so it wasn't sure at the time if it was a leak or even a possibility.

I guess it caused EA to force their hand though, as they officially announced Battlefield 4 this morning. And yes, pre-ordering Medal of Honor will get you a beta code for the new game's multiplayer. 

A lot of the details are still lacking at the moment. For example, it's unknown if a beta code is only available through Origin, or if you get it for the 360 and PS3 versions of Warfighter as well. It's also unclear if this is just for the first run copies, or if it's only for pre-orders. There is no release date for Battlefield 4, but EA does state that its multiplayer beta begins sometime in the fall of 2013. 

As much as I enjoyed Battlefield 3 (when it actually worked), I can't see myself buying a completely unrelated game to maybe play the next one's multiplayer a little bit early. I'm okay with waiting.
