DICE rolls out Battlefield 4 update for server crashes

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...

Review: Battlefield 4 photo
Review: Battlefield 4
by Jordan Devore

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 and offered a level of environmental destruction I found easy to fall in love with. If I'm allowed to blow open the side of a building and get the jump on an enemy, I'm going to do that. Over and over again. There doesn't even need to be an enemy.

Despite the fact that I'm not nearly as into military first-person shooters as I was even a couple of years ago -- repetitive sequels will do that to you -- Battlefield 4 has already, not even a full week after launch, surpassed my fondest memories of Bad Company 2.

This Battlefield 4 story trailer is too dangerous

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...

DICE details Battlefield 4 improvements from the beta

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 ...

This Battlefield 4 beta video won't calm your nerves

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.

This is what next month's Battlefield 4 beta looks like

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...

Ignorance was bliss: Official Battlefield 4 system specs
