Battlefield 4 teaser coming this week?

According to the latest rumor, EA will reveal a Battlefield 4 teaser page and a teaser video on the official Battlefield portal later this week. This will be ahead of the unveiling that’s supposed to happen on March 26 at GDC, for which EA sent out press invitations.

The teaser video will reportedly be released only to Battlefield Premium members. Each month Premium members get a special video or two, and this time, it’s rumored that the video will be the first Battlefield 4 teaser.

To make things even more interesting, BF3 players will reportedly get a special Dog Tag if they watch the teaser. The dog tag was found in the Battlelog database and simply reads “I was there”.

We’ll have to wait and see what happens later this week, or whether EA will wait until March 26th. If you’re a BF3 Premium member, keep your eyes open for new videos on Battlelog.

I have personally seen the cover art for Battlefield 4, which I cannot post, but I can say that it resembles that of the original Battlefield 3 cover. A man running, in the rain along with tanks, APC's, and a small teaser image of a jet just to the right of his body.

The buildings in the background also resemble that of the original Battlefield 3 artwork. He appears to be holding a suppressed EBR rifle with a support bipod, along with a 1911 pistol with a tac-light in his other hand. The character's face has evolved from Battlefield 3, sporting slicked back hair in an American military uniform.

The teaser stuff make sense, they did that with bf3 also.


Releasing the video to premium members only is pointless though since it will be out on the intrawebs anyway.

Uhm, how am i supposed to get a dog tog by watching a stream? In that case, you'll have to watch the stream through the battlelog website and be logged in with your PSN/XBL/Origin-account.

Premium videos are such a joke. A few of the extra camo things were cool, then they started sticking them on stupid ass assignments/locking them to specific guns. If they were at least class dependent rather than individual weapon dependent maybe those would have been cool.

Honestly week early DLC/cheaper DLC is the only reason for Premium, but hey! That was already worth it. Just sad that the other "bonuses" are worthless.

The black/gold color scheme for all regular dogtags would have been awesome though, I'd love to show off my MP7 dogtag like that, sooo sweet.

EDIT: I suppose this wasn't entirely on topic.
Uh.... Whee BF4! *gimmePCsquadvoip*

Dammit, I just bought BF3 for PC for $50.

I swear if there's a pricedrop...

Anyways, I am pretty excited. I am guessing PS4 version/Xbox 720 version will be equal to PC? I do hope this allows for a focus on bigger maps in general, though I do think BF3's variety is pretty interesting and well done all around. But the base maps need to be more varied, both in design, size, and terrain. Tired of brown (blue) buildings.

John Riccitiello spoke about that during an investment meeting or something like that. He talked about how players are so pumped up after playing for awhile that they would probably be willing to pay for reloads.

I've heard it briefly several times before, but I didn't realise how awesome it was. Was this actually made specifically for BF1942? The background theme sounds relatively standard (Sounds professional.), but the trumpet ontop is incredible.

Well the 'seemingly real' BF4 leak suggests that there will be female soldiers, yes, but I don't see how you got that from his cover description.

It will still probably be last-gen assets / up-port like BF3. We won't get a true next-gen BF till BF5 at the earliest.

I think it's pretty safe to say female soldiers won't feature on the cover regardless of if they're in the game given how box art normally is.

So are BF2's.
And Vietnam's.
And 2142's.
