    Im gonna guess we will see the first screens sometime after Endgame. Its gonna be set in a modern time again but I dunno how modern. I have a feeling its gonna take place a few years in the future. Not like 2143 or anything. More like 2043 kinda thing. I guess we will see how right or wrong I am in a few months.

    Can you say, "BF4 Config Utility"? I just hope they don't lock the config file like Treyarch did in COD:BO2.. :toast:

    I would like to fight in the US. Killing invaders in front of Walmart has a kinda "Not in my house" thing going for it.

    I doubt it. I think you will be ok.

    why are they releasing BF4 so soon after BF3 ? I have a feeling BF4 is going to simply be a large map pack...

    Yea man, I hope it's more than a Map pack.. They already said they are not creating a new engine for BF4... This will be the first time Dice has released a new BF series with out a new engine.. Well besides BF2 and BF2142 used the same engine.. But I don't consider BF2142 in the same series as BF1,2, and 3. I can see them using the same engine in BF2143, but I want a new engine for BF4.. Maybe we'll get a Frostbite 2.5 or something... I don't see how they can make that engine any better, but if anyone can do it Dice can and I hope will. :toast:

    They will improve thigns in the engine. BF4 should look a bit better then BF3. I just hope a lot of the netcode and server shit is servers side rather then client side. Also figure out something a little better so that 90% of the people that play the game aren't able to hack like BF3 is now.

    I would much rather them make a successor to BF2142. I wouldn't might BC3 either.

    i am thinking the same thing. BF2143 would be awesome with the newest frostbite engine.

    I hope for BF4, that the physics for destruction are real time, and not pre computed so that it doesnt all look the same every time something blows up and such.

    I really liked BF3 for a while. Now, it's old. I hope BF4 has many many changes to make it different from BF3. At this time I'm uninterested. No pre-order/release day buy for me, that's a promise. Oh, and it needs much, much bigger maps.

    i never got into BF3. it just seemed like you had to run around a lot to get to any real action. BC2 was a perfect mix of strategy and fun. we need BC3.

    For the posts I deleted... Stay on topic. :slap:

    I have zero reservations closing this thread down, since there is another clubhouse thread that can be used.

    BF3 has been out for a year and a half. Look how often COD spits shit out. I am ready for 4 ! Though I should finish the campaign on BF3 :)

    I'd like to buy BF4 on release day, but the way the whole "Premium Edition" thing went down I'm going to wait a little while. I don't feel like spending $60 for a product only to find that same product being $60 will ALL of the expansion content included a couple of months down the road.

    I'm posting just for the sake of making an appearance. As far as BF4 goes I'm pretty ambivalent about the whole thing. I still enjoy BF3, but I would rather they just stuck with it and improved upon it until it's fixed, or even until they release maps that are truly epic. I don't want a whole new game that stays broken the entire time with more mediocre environments.

    First of all, this is Clubhouse was of course inevitable but why was my first thought when I saw it "here we go again!"? :laugh:

    Oh yes and how about we give the poor overextended Ruskies a break this time around...say, against the PLA Ground Force and it's wave upon wave of sheer humanity with QBZ-95s? Ooo maybe there could even be a cyberwarfare mini-game somehow which takes out all the enemy assets? (the power grid is bush league stuff!)

    On second thought...maybe a little too prophetic.

    Try closer to 2 years. And BF4 most likely won't be out till 2014 for next gen console launch.

    Hopefully it's not two years but I will play it. Sadly I missed out on BF3 but will be able to play BF4 but I will play it on the playstation platform to avoid origin.
