BF4 Beta in Fall 2013: MoH Not Required

EA's BF3 Community Manager took to Reddit to clarify details about the just-confirmed Battlefield 4 beta (thanks VG247). Word is beta testing should commence in Fall 2013 and that there will be ways to get into the beta besides preordering Medal of War Warfighter, though they are not revealing what they are at this time. Here's word:

Hey Guys,
Seeing a lot of questions about the BF4 beta announce and thought that'd I make a thread where you can find official, definitive information and help to address some concerns that I'm seeing.

  • The beta will be in Fall of 2013. We don't have a BF4 release date yet but, of course, it will be after the beta.
  • We will continue to support BF3. DICE and EA are dedicated to continuing our support for Battlefield 3. Just as we've continued to support and maintain Bad Company 2, we intend to continue providing the best Battlefield 3 experience we can well into the future and past the release of End Game and Battlefield 4.
  • There are several teams at DICE. Starting work on Battlefield 4 does not mean that we will be abandoning Battlefield 3 or working any less hard to bring you the best expansions we can.
  • Your feedback absolutely matters. We will continue to use it to improve BF3 and to make Battlefield 4 even better from day one.
  • Official details regarding BF4 will always be on Battlefield.com/battlefield-4. We expect there to be a lot of rumours and speculation - don't fall for it! ;)

Let me know if you guys have other concerns. Obviously, at this point there are some things that we don't know or that we're keeping under wraps.

Today's a busy day so it may take me some time to get back to you - thanks for your patience!

  • Ian

EDIT: Additional points of clarification

  • There will be other ways to get into the beta aside from MoH Warfighter. At this time, however, it is the only way to guarantee entry.
    We've been seeing a lot of concerns about the pacing of release (i.e. "only" two years after BF3). I think it's worth noting that DICE has released a Battlefield game every two years or sooner AND Mirror's Edge at least every two years. I truly believe that we're in one of the best positions to be creating our next title - Frostbite 2 has matured, we've been gathering fan feedback like crazy, Battlefield 3 continues to expand with features which we can learn from, and we've got more data about how people play than ever.

EDIT: Additional clarification

Things that we recognize that there is a serious desire for, including but not exclusive to:

  • A better VOIP solution
  • Battle Recorder
  • Spectator Mode
  • More robust eSports support

with what Julio said, I wont bat an eye at BF4 after EA did nothing what so ever to stop the rampant cheating. Punkbuster is a waste of space as I wouldnt mind it caused more problems than BF3 did. U

Until they make a stand against cheaters, there is no point in bothering.

Rampant cheating? You're one of those guys who gets mad when he gets killed and doesn't know why?

Are you an idiot? Wait, you already answered positive with the reply above.

As a friend once said, only retards can't seem to see that BF3 is the game with the most rampant cheating ever or at least very close to ever.

I've seen plenty in BF3, tho I feel like when I was playing CoD:MW2 that I saw a FUCK of a lot more, and it wasn't just aimbots and wallhacks, but way more rude with altered EXP per kill, throwing your progression out the window.

Problem is, and people here who play it can attest it, that most of the hacks for BF3 are god damn subtle, they aren't the kind of hacks that make a player go 140-0 but rather make the cheater go 40-20. Hell, from what I've heard, the level of sophistication and subtlety of the cheats for BF3 is above anything ever made before.

Of course the total lack of battlerecorer, first person spectate or even a decent killcam worsens the cheating problem since catching them becomes even more hard.

From what I keep reading it appears BF3 is a cheater's playground where they can cheat knowing that nothing will ever happen to them. It's that bad.

Well geez, if the hacks are so subtle, I don't see the point of them. They sure as hell don't break my game. I'm almost always at the top of the leaderboard and it's never frustrating...

Also, normally, in other shooters, 95% of hacking claims are false. People just suck and don't understand that good players can do crazy things. If you've ever been really good at a FPS before, you'd be banned from everywhere. So, you see why I doubt you guys.

On non-PB BF3 servers tho, now THAT was hacking. My whole team constantly insta-dying at the spawn.
