Battlefield 4

Embedded above is your very first look at Battlefield 4 ahead of its full reveal at GDC next week. The image – uncovered by seasoned snoops All Games Beta – looks remarkably similar to Battlefield 3 artwork, but the big four in the centre of the shot suggests that this is definitely for the game’s sequel. We’re glad that’s cleared up.

Battlefield 4 is set to deploy on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 later this year, though exact dates are still unclear. EA executive Blake Jorgensen recently described the game as “stunning” on Sony’s next generation machine. “I've seen the new Battlefield [on PS4] and it is stunning,” he said. “It’s just amazing what the imagination of the game developers are allowed to do with that much power."
