The wait is over. DICE has launched Battlefield 4 today and the game is now available in retail stores for the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 and PC, as well as a digital download on Origin. Powered by the advanced technology of DICE’s proprietary Frostbite 3 engine, you will get to experience the all-out-war and epic moments possible only in Battlefield 4. The game lets you wage war across land, air and sea with unparalleled vehicular combat, dynamic environments and a new level of destruction.
If you’re planning to play on your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, you can start the battle today and upgrade to next-gen for as low as $9.99 (see details here) when those systems launch in November. You will also be able to transfer your multiplayer stats so you can hit the ground running.
Battlefield 4 puts you in the boots of U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Daniel Recker, member of the Tombstone squad. The world is on the brink of chaos, China is the tinderbox and the player is the inadvertent spark that could ignite a global conflict. Navigating the turmoil around them as they fight to save the final hope for peace between U.S., Russia and China, players will engage in combat on foot and by operating land, sea and air units.
In multiplayer, you’ll get a wide range of unique experiences. The varied and distinct maps, thrilling game modes and dynamic destruction ensure that no two games will be the same. Whether in a jet dogfighting the opposing team or onboard an attack boat in a joint strike with squad mates, the freedom of choice is always present in multiplayer. You can lead your team to victory by running and gunning at the frontlines, locating the perfect sniping position, or repairing critically damaged vehicles.
