The game is expected to be released in the Fall of 2013 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Battlefield 4 has also been confirmed as a next-gen console title and unofficially confirmed for the PlayStation 4.
Battlefield 4 features several improvements on its predecessor. The game's heads-up display is composed of two sections. The lower left-hand corner features a mini-map and compass for navigation, and a simplified objective notice above it; the lower right includes a compact ammo counter and health meter. New gameplay elements include dual-scoped weapons, target tagging[clarification needed], and use of vehicles.
Battlefield 4 multiplayer has been confirmed to contain 3 playable factions; U.S., China and Russia. Also confirmed are a new game mode known as "All Out War! Vehicle Combat" and the return of the "Commander Mode" last seen in Battlefield 2142, which gives select players an RTS-like tactical map and the ability to give orders to teammates.
In March 2013 DICE denied rumours that female soldiers would be playable in the game.
Setting and characters
In Battlefield 4's single-player campaign, the player controls "Recker", a member of a US Special Forces squad callsigned "Tombstone" in the year 2020. His teammates include squad leader SSgt. Dunn, second-in-command "Irish", and combat medic "Pac". The Battlefield 4 gameplay reveal trailer features footage from the prologue mission "Fishing in Baku", wherein Tombstone Squad, carrying vital intelligence, escapes from Baku, Azerbaijan with Russian special forces in pursuit. It has been hinted that the campaign will also occur in China, with tension rising between the Russians, Chinese, Iranians and Americans leading into a war.

Electronic Arts president Frank Gibeau confirmed the company's intention to release a sequel during a keynote at the University of California where he said "There is going to be a Battlefield 4". Afterwards, an EA spokesperson told IGN: "Frank was speaking broadly about the Battlefield brand – a brand that EA is deeply passionate about and a fan community that EA is committed to." On the eve of Battlefield 3's launch, DICE told Eurogamer it was the Swedish studio's hope that it would one day get the opportunity to make Battlefield 4. "This feels like day one now," executive producer Patrick Bach said. "It's exciting. The whole Frostbite 2 thing has opened up a big landscape ahead of us so we can do whatever we want."
After being poorly received in Battlefield 3, co-op mode has been omitted for Battlefield 4 in order to allow the team to focus on perfecting both the campaign and multiplayer components instead.
In March 2013, Electronic Arts opened the Battlefield 4 website with three official teasers, entitled "Prepare 4 Battle". Each hints at three kinds of battlespace: air, land and sea. EA then continued to release teaser trailers leading up to the unveiling of Battlefield 4 at the Game Developers Conference on March 26, 2013. The following day, Battlefield 4's first gameplay trailer, which doubled as a showcase for the Frostbite 3 engine was released. Shortly thereafter, EA listed the game for pre-order on Origin for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360; however, EA excluded any mention of the next generation consoles.
In July 2012, Battlefield 4 was announced when EA advertised on their Origin client that those who pre-ordered Medal of Honor: Warfighter would receive early access to the Battlefield 4 beta, this has since been expanded to include any Battlefield 3 Premium owners and Origin users who pre purchase Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe Edition.
