Rumor: Battlefield 4 boxart, teaser video coming

Battlefield 4 is going to be revealed this month – possibly even right now – on Battlefield Premium, according to internet whisperers who’ve also got hold of what they claim may be the game’s cover art.

This follows a rumour that the game will go public on 26th March, at or alongside the annual Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. EA sent an invite to IGN as well as other web sites which carries the distinctive Battlefield 3 colour scheme.

The new artwork comes care of Battlefield Premium user 32bita and Battlefieldo, among the internet’s most prominent Battlefield fan sites. “I have personally observed the cover art for Battlefield four, which I can not post,” wrote “Jrb”, director of the latter. “But I can say that it resembles that on the original Battlefield three cover. A man operating, within the rain along with tanks, APC’s, plus a little teaser image of a jet just to the ideal of his body.

“The buildings in the background also resemble that from the original Battlefield three artwork. He appears to become holding a suppressed EBR rifle having a support bipod, in conjunction with a 1911 pistol using a tac-light in his other hand. The character’s face has evolved from Battlefield 3, sporting slicked back hair in an American military uniform.”

Subsequently, NeoGAF customers turned up a little, watermarked image that corresponds for the Battlefieldo description. Have a appear.

We would not commonly credit findings of this sort, but there’s additional supporting proof. For starters, we currently realize that the game is set within the present day thanks to DICE basic manager Karl Magnus Troedsson, who told GDC audiences final year that “we nevertheless wish to stay in this genre, the contemporary day as it is. We feel that is a spot we can be and continue with all the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be incredibly prosperous.”

As regards the trustworthiness of Battlefieldo – this is the web-site that verified the existence of Battlefield Premium last Might. Premium customers can expect a different exclusive video this month, incidentally. Given that Battlefield 3’s fifth and, as far as we know, final DLC pack Finish Game has already been released, it’s not clear what the topic is going to be. In fairness, End Game producer Craig Mcleod has recommended that DICE may possibly continue to support Battlefield 3 with new content material alongside Battlefield 4.

Battlefieldo also claims that people that watch the video will get a specific dog tag, reading “I was there” – image for the ideal. Final but not least, Jrb has hinted on Twitter that we’ll hear far more nowadays.

Plots are thickening. Remain tuned.
