A fresh batch of details has hit the net for the next installment of EA's major first-person shooter franchise Battlefield.
A plethora of features that were featured in Battlefield 3 will make a reappearance in Battlefield 4, including most guns, single-player and co-op, and 64-player multiplayer. EA looks to be expanding extensively on what made Battlefield 3 successful and extend their vision into further advancing the series. The complete list of details is:
-Battlefield 4 will stick with 64 players. Maps are larger and more detailed.
-Three factions: US, Russia, and an unnamed “Eastern/Asian” faction.
-4 classes with “additional features and tweaks” compared to BF3
-Shipping with same amount of maps as BF3, there are plans for lots of DLC.
-DLC is already in planning stages.
-Battlefield 4 Premium will be available on day one and include some perks.
Most of the guns and vehicles from BF3 will return.
--More squad features.
-Commander feature returns, but won’t be the same as in BF2
-Battlefield 4 is coming out on both current and next gen systems, and PC as well.
-Game is more of an evolution rather than revolution of the series. Both technically and gameplay wise.
-Will ship with more game modes than BF3
-Will ship with more close quarter infantry maps than BF3
-Frostbite 2 engine is pushed further in BF4. Better effects, higher res textures, more detailed game worlds, etc.
-BF3 will still be supported after Battlefield 4 launches.
-There is plan of some sort of integration between BF3 and BF4. Could be Battlelog-only.
-Battlelog will be updated for Battlefield 4 with more social features and more detailed stats.
-Single-player and co-op will return, new writers involved this time.
Until we know for certain that Battlefield 4 will release for the PlayStation 4, we can only, almost safely, assume so at this point. Until EA officially declares it as such at the official unveiling on March 26, we can only speculate.

I wonder if the 64-player aspect will truely hit the consoles.
Either way, for me, since it's an EA game, I'll be expecting bugs (I couldn't even finish the solo campaign in BF3) and tons of ways for them to get more money out of me.
I might not even get it until Premium hits it or a Goty version.
my faith in EA=0

@2 - remember EA just publishes it and Dice develops the game. All games have bugs these days, not just ones published by EA.
also I would be really surprised if PS3 and 360 versions of the game have 64 players. I know people like to throw in Resistance 2 and MAGs player count into the arguement but, that doesnt work. All three games have different engines powering different, visuals, map size and other computation crunches. the visuals alone compared to Battlefield 3 is almost a generation gap. Just get Battlefield 4 on PS4.

i agree with cheetor - bf4 on ps4
lets hope dice don't make bf4 dx11 only like what crytek did with crysis 3
alot of people can't play crysis 3, im sure dice won't let us down! :)

I almost want them to tell me 64 players can only be done on the PS4/PC version. It's details like that that really get me heated for new console releases. And I can't imagine BF4 on current gen systems will look much better AT ALL..

I am alot more hesitant about bethseda games and dice's when considering bugs. skyrim was completely broken after 140 hours of play I couldnt finish the main quest, i was disappointed to say the least
