Last weekend, we reported on a leaked Battlefield 4 beta banner, which was removed by EA after a few hours. Today, EA and Danger Close released a brand developer commentary about the latest Medal of Honor: Warfighter multiplayer trailer. Ten seconds into the video, the following statement appears “Pre-Order Medal of Honor: Warfighter Limited Edition for Access to the Exclusive Battlefield 4 Beta,” which once again confirms pre-order access to the Battlefield 4 Beta.
“The exclusive Battlefield 4 beta will be available in Fall 2013,” EA has added. Although, “additional details regarding Battlefield 4 will be revealed at a later date.” Frank Gibeau, President of EA Labels, stated, “Though Battlefield and Medal of Honor Warfighter each offer players a completely unique experience, they are united by their underlying technology base — Frostbite. These are two of the hottest shooters, coming together to deliver a one-two punch of action, intensity and shooter entertainment.”
Update: Beta has been confirmed to hit all three platforms, according to Warfighter’s Pre-Order Page. PS3 and Xbox 360 users will have access through the Limited Edition, which is Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s first print. PC users, however, will be able to have access through either the Origin-exclusive Deluxe Edition or the Limited Edition.
DICE’s next Battlefield game is now confirmed to be Battlefield 4, putting all the Bad Company 3 rumors to bed. Battlefield 4 is expected to release next year, which could also see the launch of next-gen consoles. Regardless of next-gen plans, Battlefield 4 should release on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 by the end of next year.
