Battlefield 4's beta window has been set for "fall 2013."
In a new example of cross-pollination between EA's biggest FPS franchises, EA has officially announced the existence of Battlefield 4 in a trailer for upcoming spec-ops outing Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The trailer, in addition to dropping details regarding Warfighter's multiplayer, invites players to note that a pre-purchase of the "Limited Edition" version of that game will grant them access to Battlefield 4's beta, set for launch in "fall 2013."
Details on the exact nature of Battlefield 4 are scarce, though safe bets would probably involve the inclusion of tanks, guns, and maybe the occaisional chest-high wall. Announcing the beta, EA promised that more details on the game will be "revealed at a later date."
Frank Gibeau, President of EA Labels, sounds pretty pleased with the whole thing. "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," he said in a statement.
Medal of Honor: Warfighter (and its charitable side) will be released for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and in the US on October 23, and on October 26 in the UK. If you'd like to get a better idea of its multiplayer right this minute, check out our hands-on multiplayer coverage from E3.
