Community Created Battlefield 4 Map Deployed

Posted on October 28, 2015 by Rae Michelle Richards

I’m sure of one thing – that the Battlefield community certainly is passionate about one of their favorite games, Battlefield 4. Developers at DICE LA have been working with the community for the past six months on a brand new map called Operation Outbreak which has now been released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC for free!

How did the developers work with the community? By collecting feedback through various community forums, official polls, social media and other outlets to help shape every aspect of this map. Through what EA calls the Community Test Environment players were able to preview the map while in development.

The end result is the final infantry focused jungle map which EA has made the focus of a brand new trailer released through YouTube.

Battlefield 4 Takes To The ‘Angry Sea’ At E3

Posted on June 10, 2013 by Les Major

I’ve been impressed already with how the Frostbyte 3 engine handled the Fishing In Baku video DICE and EA released which could in itself be a short movie. At E3, they’ve created another featurette called Angry Sea which features gameplay footage of a naval level of the game.

After aquiring the intel they needed, the team is forced out into rough seas to head towards their escape. This happens after the ship they are in splits in two, revealing the hallway before them breaking away as the ship separates. It could seemingly have been an aircraft carrier, as you soon find yourself avoiding jets that slide down the deck before your team. The physics involved in the destruction alone are amazing. I still love the character models themselves too. Check it out after the break!Read More


Screenshots From Private Battlefield 4 Alpha Surface

Posted on June 9, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Electronic Art’s latest Battlefield game isn’t exactly a secret, in fact when the game was unveiled a few months ago they treated us all to over ten minutes of in-game footage taken from the single player campaign.  What is concerning is that someone has leaked almost a dozen screenshots from an internal Alpha build right before E3. While none of the details presented are confirmed, these screenshots hint at some exciting new features for this military franchise.

As others have pointed out, a few screenshots in the gallery make allusions to enhanced knife, gun and character customization. BF4 may also include changes to the squad re-spawning system as well, raising the amount of players in a Squad to five. Only one new map is featured in the Alpha multiplayer trial – titled “Siege”, appears to take place in Shanghai.

Obviously these screenshots come from an unfinished internal alpha build, several areas like vehicles and environment lack finished texts and post-processing. Are you excited for Battlefield 4? Let us know in the comments, and check out a partial gallery after the jump.

Dragon Age 3 And Next Mass Effect Using Frostbite 3

Posted on March 31, 2013 by Les Major

Remember that absolutely beautiful Battlefield 4 video we saw just last week? Well the general manager for Bioware Edmonton and Montreal Aaryn Flynn has confirmed Dragon Age 3 and the next Mass Effect will use the same engine!

This is definitely amazing news! The characters, details and realisim level in the Battlefield 4 video are stunning. Even the video itself was produced more like a short movie told from a first person perspective. Of course that doesn’t mean the other games will be first person, just that they’ll be potentially as beautiful. Hopefully this means other EA titles will be adding this wonderful engine to their games as well.

Previous reports revealed that Dragon Age 3 would be using Frostbite 2 by DICE, and it’s great to see this upgrade. Artists on DA3 were already impressed with switching to the earlier Frostbite, seeing what they come up with now should truly be amazing!


Battlefield 4 Looks Visually Stunning

Posted on March 27, 2013 by Les Major

EA’s big contender in the FPS genre has released an incredible preview of the latest Battlefield installment. Playing out more as a movie than a video game (through gameplay, not cut scenes mind you) this guided in game tour is filled with so much visual candy it’s hard at times to remember this isn’t real. From the suns glare to many of the videos other small details that really boost the immersion it’s a absolute treat to behold.

It’s definitely worth checking out the video. As lengthy as it is I found myself quite eagerly watching the whole presentation. Battlefield 4 is due out in the fall of this year. Read on the for the trailer!Read More


Battlefield 4 Confirmed In New MOH: Warfighter Trailer

Posted on July 17, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Battlefield 4 is indeed a real game, as the end of the most recent Medal of Honor: Warfighter trailer confirms speculation from this weekend The trailer is a developer diary covering all of the basics including the multiplayer, weapons and more straight from the guys behind the game.

At the end of the trailer is the above image stating “Pre-order Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition for Access To The Battlefield 4 Beta”

Presumably Battlefield 4 would be slotted for a 2014 release. Considering the inclusion of the Beta in the MOH: Warfighter Limited Edition we can infer that some version of BF 4 will be coming to current consoles, although such a game would certainly shine on next-gen hardware.

Check out the trailer below.
