Karl Magnus Troedsson chats about the first next gen Battlefield

Battlefield 4 is an interesting prospect, not entirely for good reasons. DICE's latest is pretty to the point of absurdity, with unbelievable detail lavished on every square inch of freshly exploded terrain, but it's hard to get terribly excited about the new features, which include mysterious "elements of social persistence" and a lightweight squad command system. What we've seen so far suggests a clean-up operation, dedicated in the first instance to restoring the breadth Battlefield 3 traded away, rather than an assault on new territory.... read more

Battlefield 4: DICE talks beating clich�s, connected gaming

must be said, I find it ironic he claims they're beating gaming cliches when the only footage as yet unveiled begins with multiple minutes worth of unskippable cutscene and a grey corridor.

I don't care about "meaningful characters", I want large scale naval combat!

Is what I want to know is whether my premium will roll over to beef 4??? Oh wait its EA that means another £80 game. And what about if i get it on 360 will my premium roll over to the Durango or am i going to be spending £160 in total on beef 3 with new guns and maps aka beef 4. I counted 21 bits of scenery from beef 3 in the beef 4 trailer. I get the feeling were all about to get ripped a new hole in our wallets.

I think your main concern should be why you're playing a cow rather than a game. Of course premium won't run from 3 to 4, why should it?
