i highly doubt they will aim for 60 fps on consoles even if they didn't upgrade the visuals of BF 3 at all. Running the game on ultra at 1080p will require some pretty good hardware already.

One year dev cycle sounds strange as well, i would be surprised if they didn't start working on the game soon after BF3 was out.

I really hope the PC version is not a port of the next-gen console version.

I can't even be bothered to pick all the completely fucking retarded holes in this rumour. You'd have to have the mental age of a lobotomised 4 year old to think it contained a slither of truth.

Yeah, that's true - and if this leak is real would point to a Wii U version not being in development. Most likely just the writer of the list putting things down in a confusing manner. It's probably all bullshit, anyway ;)

This is highly likely.

- commander role in MP will return with new tools and abilities

Possible

- voice commands

I don't see this happening.

- battlelog will be tied to the game

Duh

- game will support video recording with internal replay system this might be in box or via dlc.. thats unclear or if its universal paltform inclusion

- currently there are three factions: USA, Russia, and China!!

- female charcaters (NPC's) and the ability to play as them in MP

- next gen systems and pc will support 64-player MP however current gen console releases wont

These would all be nice.

- frostbite 2.0

No shit

- next gen console versions run @ approx 60fps, current gen @ 30fps, PC will ahve an FPS lock of 100fps

This sounds reasonable until the 100fps locked on PC. No way to guarantee that and 100 is a weird number.

- exp system will be again present

Of course it will.

This whole list is bullshit anyway.

That's weird. Not even CoD has a 1 year development cycle, they normally change teams so they have about two years to work on the next game. I call this bullshit.

Major Battlefield sequels typically are known for extreme differences and change, not just a minor rehash of the previous game.

Call of Duty is notable for using the same game engine over and over and over again, with practically no changes. If EA wants to go for a "1 year dev cycle" they will be "Call of Duty'ing it".

First it was "Tony Hawk'ing it", then it was "Guitar Hero'ing it". Funny how all three are Activision franchises...

Pretty much confirms my thoughts about EA doing MoH one year and BF the other year. (although the latest MoH really sucks)

This is just Treyarch & Activision COD in a different form.

Biggest news to come from this is the fact that both the NextBox and the PS4 will be out by next October. (Assuming next-gen versions of BF4 launch day and date with current gen versions.)

By simply sticking with the modern warfare setting, thats what BF4 already sounds like to me. Doesn't sound like it should be a whole new numbered entry but a big expansion or something.


But it wouldn't surprise me in the least if it comes out next fall as a launch title or pretty close to nextgen launch. BF3 came out last October, so assuming at least some part of DICE got to work on BF4 not long after or even before BF3 came out it would be about 2 years between titles. That's EA's schtick- pump out a sequel two years later no matter what. Maybe they only need about one year of dev time if they're not really changing much (which that leaks more or less sounds like) and simply pushing something out the door so they can have a BF game at launch. It'll still be modern warfare so its not like they need totally new art assets or anything.

Hmm I think you miss the point of why CoD sells like it does 60fps is only one reason the entire way the MP is setup is enough to bring people back.

CoD and BF are despite being in the same genre very different experiences.

Some of my friends who aren't tech savy like COD because it's smooth.

They consider Battlefield "choppy" on consoles. I dunno. But that's them.

I'm fairly sure the implication is 100fps maximum. Which makes only slightly more sense than 100fps minimum. Which is to say, both make pretty much zero.

That isn't happening. Dice has had plenty of chances to go for 60fps and they were directly asked why they didn't do so in the past. This gen they wanted better textures this gen, next gen they'll still want better textures.

As for the rumor. The 1yr part alone makes it hard to swallow and the 100fps seems like such a goofy number. Is that a PAL thing or something?
