After months of anticipation the official reveal for Battlefield 4 arrived at GDC 2013 and with it came a lot of information. Instead of a simple reveal trailer DICE had over 17 minutes of gorgeous gameplay to show off and you can watch it below. Battlefield will release sometime in Fall 2013 on PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, and next generation systems (the next Xbox).

This does not include the Nintendo Wii U however and this was due to it being to much of a risk for the company. News of the game not coming too the Wii U came from Lars Gustavsson, creative director at DICE spoke with Videogamer and said the following:

[[quote]]Sometimes, at least for us, it's focusing on what you do well and what you know well, and ensuring that you deliver something good than trying a bit too much, stretching yourself too thin and risking it,[[/quote]]

However you feel about Battlefield or shooters in general, this is easily the best game we have seen in action in a long time. This comes via DICE's new Frostbite 3 engine. The demo was played on a high end PC in the video below. There was only talk of single-player at the event and DICE want to deliver in an emotional story that you will care about this time around. In the 17 minutes so far they have already done a better job than Battlefield 3 so that s a good sign.

A big change this time to the overall gameplay is a new system called Battlelog. It takes the Autolog system from the Need For Speed series made by the team over at Criterion has been spreading to every big title for EA in different ways.

You can pre-order your copy already for $59.99 and will get the Premium expansion pack for free. Origin will also have a digital deluxe edition for $69.99 with bonus in game items to have.
