Battlefield 4 Is Coming This October

Battlefield 4, the latest in the Battlefield series, is set to be released on October 29th of this year. This news comes to us from the game’s official Facebook page, and confirms that it will be released for the PC, the Xbox 360, and the PS3. It’s also been confirmed that it’s going to be released for the PS4 and the Xbox One, Microsoft’s latest console, though at this time there’s no official release date for those consoles, and subsequently, those versions of BF4. I’d expect to see the PS4 and Xbox One to come out sometime in November, though I’ll admit it’d be a nice change of pace to see them come out a little earlier than that.

Activision has also announced the first expansion pack that will be available for the game. Called China Rising, it’ll pack in 4 extra maps, as well as extra vehicles and weapons. It’ll be available for purchase at launch (begging the question “why don’t they just put it in the game in the first place?”) though if you pre-order BF4 you’ll get it for free as a bonus.

It might just be worth picking up this year, especially if I get one of the next gen consoles. After all, it looks absolutely gorgeous, even if it’s just your standard shooter. And hey, who knows, maybe it’ll actually be something more than “just” a shooter?
