Now that it has been confirmed, why does it seem like bittersweet news?
Battlefield 4 is coming out at some point and the Beta will be open to people that Pre-Order Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
All of this seems rather questionable considering there are plenty of people subscribed to Battlefield 3’s Premium service. It almost puts people into a position where they have to plan on buying a new game while they are in the middle of enjoying one they are already preemptively paying extra for through DLC.
Medal of Honor Warfighter is the unfortunate ‘vessel’ that will be looked at by many people as a $40 game with a Beta they would pay $20 for rather than the $60 they will actually pay for it.
Many Battlefield fans are still wondering where the Bad Company sequel is. That happens to be a good question if you consider the fact that Battlefield 3 is pretty much designed to be a multiplayer game rather than some sort of story mode that you anxiously await to see what happens in the next chapter.
Bad Company has a cast of characters that you actually develop an interest in, but Battlefield 3 is a game that lacks any sort of draw in the story mode. The terrorists are bad and they want to destroy everything… yeah… got it. What happens in Battlefield 4? Do the terrorists come back as zombies?…
Sorry, that is more of a Call of Duty thing.
