DICE Sets the Mark for Quality on Next-Gen Consoles

We’re only seven days away from all-out warfare on Xbox One. Battlefield 4, which launched on current generation consoles and PCs last week, will hit shelves on Friday for Xbox One and is coming to Playstation 4 just a week later on November 29. Grab your 63 closest friends because Battlefield 4 is the only place where you can have 64 people on the battlefield at 60 frames per second.

“I could give you 64 reasons why Battlefield 4 is the can’t-miss game of this year, but here’s the one you need: critics are saying Battlefield 4 is the first great first-person shooter of the next-generation,” said Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer of Electronic Arts. “With the superior technology of Frostbite 3, vast environments for online team play, and the only game with 64-player multiplayer all-out warfare, Battlefield 4 is ready to bring the next-generation to life.”
