The Naval Strike DLC for Battlefield 4 launches today for Battlefield 4 Premium members ahead of its wide release on April 8, 2014. That was the plan, anyway. The new content (four maps, Titan mode, a hovercraft) will be late...
It's been months and months since I last touched Battlefield 4, for a number of reasons -- some of them the fault of the game, some of them not. I'm thinking the impending Naval Strike DLC, showcased rather excellently in th...
In a blog post about the current state of Battlefield 4's multiplayer, DICE wrote that fixing netcode issues with the game is "one of the top priorities." I'd sure hope so -- few things are more irritating in competitive game...
DICE is still in damage-control mode over Battlefield 4 and the latest attempt to curry favor is a month-long player appreciation event, starting February 1. There will be a double XP weekend (two for Premium members), daily ...
As part of an ongoing attempt to fix its game as much as possible before pumping out any more DLC, DICE has launched another update for Battlefield 4 on PC, as well as updates for PS3 and PS4 intended to improve general ...
If you see "Battlefield 4" or "DICE," it's likely the word "patch" is about to follow. I don't see that changing anytime soon, unfortunately. The latest patch for the PC version of the game, out now, addresses an issue with t...
Hey hey! This video was supposed to go up yesterday afternoon, but a series of unfortunate events resulted in it going up very late last night, and then internet witchcraft prevented me from putting up a post. So, if you don...
With this week's release of the China Rising expansion for Battlefield 4 Premium players amidst the game displaying varying degrees of brokenness depending on the platform, DICE is in something of a messy situation, to put it...
Battlefield 4, at launch, was a pretty hectic experience on the PC, but the same can't be said about the watered-down 360 and PS3 versions of the game. Simply put, the maps are built around the concept of huge 64 player battl...
Can DICE fix crashes in Battlefield 4 across all versions of the game before its "We're sorry!" double XP event rolls out on Thursday? While I wish them the best of luck, it's difficult to be optimistic. The studio has put ou...
DICE says that its number-one priority is to address Battlefield 4's launch issues. According to general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson, "...we are so serious that we have the entire team working to stabilize the game and we w...
It was reassuring to hear that some people within DICE were interesting in working on Battlefield: Bad Company again. I quite like straight-faced Battlefield games -- their multiplayer, anyway -- but the Bad Company titles ha...
You can go ahead and mute the audio before clicking play on this video for Second Assault, an upcoming Battlefield 4 map pack. The dramatic voice over just isn't doing it for me -- not when, really, all I needed was straight...
Battlefield 4 unloaded over 133,000 copies on the Japanese market in its debut, according to data obtained by tracking authority Media Create. The PlayStation 3 version of DICE's first-person shooter vanquished all challenger...
It's to be expected that if you're playing a Battlefield title at launch, you are more than likely going to encounter technical issues. Battlefield 4 is no exception, with a number of problems reported for both PC and console...
The most fun I've ever had in a Battlefield game was in 2010's Battlefield: Bad Company 2. That's not to say it's the best title in the series or anything like that, mind you -- just that it arrived at the right time for me a...
What, you didn't think this trailer was going to be all pleasantries, did you? That wouldn't be very Battlefield-like. Well, there's that nice bit where the guy gently tosses an apple to a little girl. Apple-tossin' asi...
I quite liked my time spent with the Battlefield 4 beta, even if I never got to witness that darn skyscraper falling down first-hand. (I did, however, participate in some absurd parachute gunfights after diving off the thing ...
There's a new post over on the Battlefield 4 blog describing the title's upcoming "Spectator" mode coming to PC and next generation consoles. I'm going to now accomplish in 15 words what took over 1,600 for the gang at DICE: ...
The second of five expansions for Battlefield 4, Second Assault, will be available first for Xbox One players. It's another one of those timed exclusives that Microsoft is so into, unfortunately. If you want to play the DLC a...
The open beta for Battlefield 4 starts today for the majority of players, and you can get your fill of reckless destruction one way or another. You could watch this trailer which showcases Siege of Shanghai on Xbox 360, or you could jump into the action and be the one that rains death upon anyone that stands in your way. One option is pretty alpha, the other a bit more beta.
As a studio, DICE "love[s] the Bad Company series," but a new installment isn't a point of focus right now. Creative director Lars Gustavsson told Polygon that "My feeling is that I would love to do it. For me, when we starte...
Remember when Battlefield 3 came out and all everyone was doing was impotently running helicopters into the ground? DICE wasn't happy with the its flying learning curve, according to Battlefield 4 creative director Lars Gust...
Electronic Arts and DICE have rolled out the Battlefield 4 beta. Those that are Battlefield 3 Premium members, have pre-ordered Battlefield 4 Digital Delux Edition, or registered their copy of Medal of Honor: Warfighter (eit...
Battlefield 4 will start off with 10 multiplayer maps, each of which is playable across all seven modes. One of them, Zavod 311, takes place in and around an abandoned Soviet tank factory. It's playable at the Eurogamer Expo ...
Battlefield 4's multiplayer is something I'm really looking forward to, and now all the game modes have been revealed. Conquest – All-out vehicle warfare mixed with intense infantry action across land, air and sea Domi...
The way I see it, it wouldn't be Battlefield without a beta. In recent years, I've transitioned into becoming more of a casual player of the series and, like with Battlefield 3, my experience with the new game, at least earl...
Oh Battlefield 4 multiplayer, how I can't wait to be obsessed with you. Single-player? Hah, no thanks. Multiplayer though? Oh yes. Yes yes yes please. This promo video covers pretty much all the stuff we already know that mu...
After seeing the skyscraper destruction in the Battlefield 4 E3 demonstration, my first thought was a standard "Wow, that's impressive!" The folks at DICE know their stuff from a technical standpoint. Then it hit me. I'm goin...
We've all been there. The aircraft in the Battlefield games look so alluring and, after finally working up the courage, you're able to jump in one of 'em. Mere seconds later, a freak accident ensues and your team is left with...
Battlefield 4 executive producer Patrick Bach has gone on the record with VideoGamer to state that the differences in visual fidelity between the PlayStation 4 / Xbox One and PC versions of the game "won't be night and day," ...
Levolution. It sounds like someone with a lisp trying to say revolution. Well anyway, that's the marketing buzzword Electronic Arts is pushing like crazy, and while the name is stupid the tech behind it looks cool. The newes...
Concerns about where DICE will take Star Wars: Battlefront have been expressed before, and with little to go on outside of a vague "probably in summer 2015" launch window, I can absolutely see why. Even if the studio has a pr...
There are a fair few games that will be released on both current- and next-gen consoles, but Mirror's Edge 2 won't be among them. EA Games Label executive VP Patrick Söderlund tells Polygon that "It just happened to be a...
Lead multiplayer designer Thomas Andersson took to the Battlefield 4 blog and detailed what one of his main goals were when creating the game's multiplayer mode. "We want to build upon what makes Battlefield 3 great, and one...
Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen stated during a investor call today that they expect to release Star Wars: Battlefront “alongside the new Star Wars films, probably in summer 2015.” Not much, but at least we h...
DICE continues to upgrade its social service Battlelog in preparation for Battlefield 4's release later this year, and here's our look at what exactly is in the pipeline. For folks who literally can't get enough Battlefield ...
Going into E3, all I truly wanted to hear more about was Battlefield 4's multiplayer. Who didn't? The single-player campaign had, up until that point, been DICE's promotional focus. Perhaps the studio knew it'd have our atten...
DICE is as excited about Star Wars: Battlefront as you are, Ellen Page is pissed about Ellie in The Last Of Us looking like her, Saints Row IV is too explicit for Australia, and Suda51 gives his stance on sexuality in Killer Is Dead. Adam Sessler fills in for Tara, and we talk about his fun panel with Jim Sterling, and how I'm a suicidal Pikachu.
One of the smarter things EA has done in recent memory is set up its studios to build games using Frostbite 3 from the obvious Battlefield 4 to Mirror's Edge 2 to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. That's both in terms of b...
