We value the feedback from our fans and are constantly looking for ways to improve our games. We conduct annual surveys that include topics that range from random ideas to specific themes to see what resonates. These are just some of the ideas included in our survey and not indicative of anything we have in the works.
Not sure its worth a new thread, but a couple days ago I took an online survey regarding Battlefield 4. It was mostly just highlighting what you liked or disliked regarding certain paragraphs laden with marketing speak ("visceral combat") and so forth. Nothing really new from that part of it- mentioned Battlelog 2.0 and being able to schedule matches with friends, mentioned increased dynamic environments (one example being blowing out the foundations of a dam to flood the battlefield), naval combat (mentioned jet skis and gun boats), asked me how unique a possible boxart was (it was the guy in the rain with the BF4 logo dead center across the box) and how interested I'd be in purchasing BF4 if I could transfer over my unlocks and rank from BF3.
What I found most interesting were the 3 DLC package descriptions:
The first one was described as taking Operation Metro and Caspian Border and remaking them in Frostbite 3, with new weapons and classes. Then they had you rank possible names for the DLC pack. I don't recall all of them but some were: Battlefield 4 Recommisioned, BF4 Reenlisted, BF4 War Torn, and BF4 Reconstructed.
Second one was a DLC that would focus on naval combat with more naval vehicles and coastal batteries. It wasn't super specific, just that it would focus on naval combat. Possible names (that I remember now) were: BF4 Naval Warfare (or maybe it was Naval combat?), BF4 Steel Titans and some other ones that I'm forgetting.
The third DLC description was the most interesting: DINOSAURS! From what I recall, it was described as a coop mode where you and other players would fight against dinosaurs with primitive weapons, specifically mentioning a bow and arrow. Possible names were: BF4: BC, BF4: Primal Combat (or maybe it was Primal Warfare?), BF4: 21942 BC and some other one that was something like BF4: Dino... something. Can't recall.
Take that for what its worth since I don't have any screens or anything, but FWIW, it was almost exactly like other EA surveys I've seen in the past in terms of format, like that Dragon Age 3 one from last year.
