DICE Will Show Battlefield 4 Multiplayer and Discuss Star Wars Games June 10

With the Xbox One cat finally out of the bag, so to speak, Battlefield developers DICE have taken to the media to make a few special announcements.

Earlier, DICE officially confirmed Battlefield 4‘s presence on the next-generation consoles – the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 – and revealed that the game would ship on October 29 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation3 and PC. They also announced and lightly detailed Battlefield 4′s first expansion pack, China Rising. You can read all about it here.

More recently, we’ve learned of a couple items that the studio will be showing off during this year’s E3.

For starters, DICE has confirmed that they “will be revealing even more information about Battlefield 4 at E3 2013 with a live multiplayer demo at 1 PM PDT on Monday, June 10.”

In addition, we’ll also be learning more about their plans for their Star Wars-licensed games around the same time. EA labels president Frank Giebeau wrote in a recent update, “our E3 briefing ‘The Download: EA 2013 Preview’ will be a showcase of next-generation games like Battlefield 4, Need For Speed, a full range of EA SPORTS games and a first look at our plans for the Star Wars partnership with Disney. Tune in on Monday, June 10 at 1pm PT on Spike TV or at www.ea.com/e3 to experience it all.”

Update

DICE has updated their Facebook page with the following, indicating that multiplayer matches will be streamed during the E3 event, including commentary:

Of course, we’ll be covering all the latest on Battlefield 4 and DICE’s Star Wars games during E3, so make sure to keep your sights locked right here.

    “Looks at calender”

    D’OH!

  • PewPewTank

    They say they have big plans, then they torture us by giving us the date of June 10th

    • Nick Loner

      Only 20 days from now. Could’ve been worse – months. :/

    • warthunder

      Then amidst all this waiting, the MP is basically the same as battlefield 3 with commander mode.

      • Arty

        lol.. so it will be almost as good as BF2..

      • Asmitty56

        Except with 64 players, which in turn will be an entirely different experience. BF3 pushed the consoles to the limit, the new gen-consoles will allow BF4 to thrive.

        • WarBro

          Except its not coming out for next gen until Next Year

          • Asmitty56

            Uhh.. The next gen consoles will be released some time before Christmas, safe to say next-gen BF4 will release at the same time if not packaged together. Besides 64 players, more vehicles, more bases, bigger maps, and better game play is worth the wait. Anyone who buys BF4 for PS3 or the 360 are morons because it’s not going to run well at all on it.

    I cannot wait until E3! It will be epic

  • SovietStorm

    ah , Star Wars and Battlefield 4 , EA and DICE need to work on Battlefront 3 , Better for the company in sales , and better for the community with a Frostbite 3.0 Engine in Battlefront 3 and the fun of Battlefront :)

    1PM pacific? That’s Ubi Soft’s conference. EA’s conference starts at 3PM pacific.

    I’m confused. That’s either a major dick move or somebody got a time wrong somewhere.

    -
    Based on everything I’ve gathered, another source had mixed up Ubi Soft and EA. Disregard.

      Unless you’re going to be there then why are you hyperventilating? Everything will be blogged and recorded to death.

      Stop sweating the unimportant

  • MegaMan3k

    This is their opportunity to prove that they haven’t lost sight of Battlefield’s identity. If they FUBAR this as much as they did the BF4 reveal, then ooph.

  • T-51B

    What the fuck happened to the drone strike expansion pack DICE?

    Anyway Battlepacks similar to Mass Effects 3s Multiplayer Packs and Commander mode are enough for me to say BF4 > Ghosts

    • WarBro

      Drone strike was just a made-up name. China Rising is the first DLC

      • Crushedminiegg121

        The Drone Strike Expansion was replaced with China Rising.

  • cannot wait

    When DICE unveils multiplayer gameplay on June 10 on PC and Next Gen jaws will be dropping everywhere. Let me say to those people calling this BF 3.1 or what ever. For BF3 they had a new engine from the ground up. BF4 will be that engine plus a ton of little upgrades that will smooth a lot of the stuff out. But the biggest point is now they can focus on 3 platforms that will have the power to play BF4 in all of its glory. I am gonna go out on a limb here and say that this BF will be DICE best game to date. Reason i say this is because they have got the new engine out of the way with BF3. Now all they are doing is making sure the game play and everything runs smooth. Plus with this game coming out on Next Gen console gamers will get the BF we deserve now. Bring on June 10. Call me a fan boy I do not care i love gaming and I love BF. I have taste.

    • WarBro

      Sorry to burst your mountain dew but they’re not going to show it running on next gen consoles. It’ll be a PC gameplay presentation just like BF3 was. Next gen console version of BF4 won’t be out until next year

    • The Dude

      I will also burst your bubble BF4 will be using Frostbite 3 not 2, and the demo will be running on a PC. That and PS4 and Xbox One have a measly 7600 series card in them, no Ultra settings.

      • thetrepicz

        7800 series* and also the operating system will be more lightweight than windows leading to a 25-50% performance increase over a computer with the same specs
