We have some great news for Battlefield 4 fans now and a piece of information that may have potentially slipped beneath your radar. After initially wowing the gaming world with their 17 minute Battlefield 4 single-player footage, DICE has now confirmed that they are ready to show off Battlefield 4 multiplayer for the first time.
By ready, they have confirmed that they will be bringing multiplayer to E3 2013 next month and will provide lucky attendees with the chance to participate in some live battles directly from the E3 showfloor. Perhaps even better though, DICE has also said that those who are unable to attend will not miss anything – because they will be streaming the entire thing.
Live streams will be available, showing the Battlefield 4 multiplayer action as it unfolds live from E3, with DICE also revealing that matches will take place with commentary. We had the chance to play some live Black Ops 2 multiplayer matches in London prior to the game’s release, and we have to say that the included commentary does really add to the whole experience.
The first Battlefield 4 multiplayer footage will be available for viewing on June 10, during EA’s pre-E3 event. EA has promised ‘hours’ of streaming footage for those looking to watch online, so it really is shaping up to be a special week if you are a fan of Battlefield.
Some BF fans are fearing that gameplay could end up the same as BF3, but hopefully EA will show enough of the game at E3 to ease some of these fears. It should also serve as an excellent appetizer as Battlefield 3 premium owners patiently await their chance to enter the BF4 beta as part of their subscription.
How excited are you about Battlefield 4 this year? Are you a little cautious this time, or still fully on board the Battlefield bandwagon?
