YouTube user JackFrags might just be on the trail of another hidden beast in Battlefield 4, and whatever it is, it sounds far scarier than a giant monster shark. Listen for yourself at 0:20. "I did a little snooping around i...

Not-so-final stand: There's more Battlefield 4 DLC on the way


DICE wants to know which classic maps you want to see again
Dec 09

It looked like Battlefield 4 was going to go out on a relative high note with the Final Stand DLC, but when it comes to naming in this industry, "final" doesn't have to mean the end. "With [Final Stand] released, we hope and ...

DICE: Battlefield 4's bad launch 'absolutely' damaged trust


But, you know, promises not to do that again
Oct 08

I think it's nice that we've finally managed to hold EA accountable to something. Can its ripoff sports game releases be next? Well, I guess it's been DICE falling on the sword and profusely apologizing more than EA.&nbs...

Good, good: Battlefield Hardline delayed to 2015


More time for multiplayer, single-player, and stability
Jul 22

Visceral Games is pushing Battlefield Hardline from October 2014 to early 2015 in order to better meet player feedback from the beta it ran this year. After Battlefield 4's troubled launch, I doubt any of us need to be convin...

They're pretty bad at feigning humility
EA has garnered quite a reputation for being jerks over the past couple of years, with the rough launch of Battlefield 4 being one of the many reasons people are upset with them. CEO Andrew Wilson offered his apologies, sort of.

DICE isn't sure why fans like Battlefield: Bad Company so much

DICE knows there's a demand for another Battlefield: Bad Company -- but it doesn't know why that demand exists, exactly. Maybe we can help break it down for the studio. "Some people say they found the multiplayer controls fas...

EA: Battlefield 4 was a victim of its own ambition


'The situation we had was unacceptable'

To put it bluntly, Battlefield 4 was broken when it came out. Everyone's accepted that fact, including EA itself. EA CEO Andrew Wilson recently chimed in to candidly say that Battlefield 4's shortcomings had to do with i...

This is one impressive Battlefield 4 fan movie


'Through My Eyes'
Apr 29
// Hamza CTZ Aziz
YouTube channel The Two Scotsmen released the first part of a cinematic series depicting a third-person view of Battlefield 4's combat. There's not much in terms of action yet, but I'm really impressed by how all the scenes were captured and put together. Remember when machinima films were going to be the next big thing? The Internet sure was naive back in 2006.

Battlefield 4 has a ton of easter eggs. Such as the case with the Megalodon, which can be discovered in the Naval Strike DLC on the Nansha Strike map. And yes, you will die if you get caught underneath its jump.
