DICE Confident That Battlefield 4 Will Outclass Other Shooters

If you hadn't noticed, there are a lot of shooters on the horizon.

But developer DICE believes their new effort, Battlefield 4, will stand apart. Producer Patrick Bach told GameSpot that despite the stiff competition, BF4 will prove itself as the "best game."

He also said that all this inter-genre competition is good for everyone involved:

"I think [competition is] beneficial for everyone. Consumers, first, of course, they get more choice. For us, we need to think about what is Battlefield really about so we don't dilute the franchise in any way. We need to focus down on what makes Battlefield awesome, and make it even more awesome.

And I think Battlefield 4 hopefully is a good testament that we're doing that. I can't really see any downside to having multiple games being great. I'm happy for the consumer, first, and I think we will step up our game to fight the competition even harder. We think we have the best game; we need to prove it."

Battlefield 4 will have to go toe-to-toe with Activision's Call of Duty: Ghosts, and 2014 will see the arrival of heavy hitters like Respawn's Titanfall and Bungie's Destiny. Battlefield has always managed to impress critics and gamers alike, though, arguably more so than CoD. It wouldn't be too surprising if BF4 pulled down some very high review scores when it launches later this year...

I don't know anyone that plays Battlefield for the SP story though.

I've really enjoyed the single-player stories of Killzone though, even in spite of the super annoying Rico character.

Battlefield 4 actually has me thinking about crossing over from CoD.

I am sick of CoD never updating the graphics. While Battlefield improves every year, and 4 looks beautiful!

Even CoD: Ghosts looks crap compared to it.

I made the switch a with BF3. No regrets. I played MWF3 and even bought BLOPSII, which validated my decision to switch

They've got to go for those elusive 10 scores to really make an impact against CoD. New generations mean anything could happen.

I find it funny that both battlefield AND call of duty are both going to xbox one with DLC first. Why would they want to team up to compete against each other? If anything pc gamers should get battlefield DLC first.

That should be pretty amusing especially after Battlefield tried to go the Sony route before. They'll probably get less love over there.

It's not about CoD and BF competing against one another it's that MS brought a bag of money to each of those meetings.

yea, sure, ill believe it when i see it!
BF3s campaign was such a disappointment, and funny he should mention the word dilute because thats exactly what BF3 did!
it diluted the lines between tactical squad based warfare that battlefield is famous for, and the mindless twitch shooting COD is famous for.
only reason why people are screaming for another BFBC game is because that is the only franchise left that still holds true to the battlefield name, and they want it back!
not diluted my a$$, BF3 was such a COD wannabee just like every military shooter has become, and BF4 will be NO different!

I think BF3 was more a MAG wannabe than a COD wannabe. I loved he hell out of MAG, so I really loved BF3.
What kind of annoys me about COD is that your guy can't RUN more than 50 feet before he's tired and has to walk. Very lame...

I'm going to have to wholeheartedly disagree. BF3 is by far the better game. As much as i enjoy COD, BF3 is what i prefer. COD is very much the same game that it was at the beginning of the generation, as for BF3... Well now that all of the expansions have come out its so much more of a fantastic game. Yes there are what, 4 maps that are for twitchers but the rest are phenomenal. Great layouts, huge, lots of variety, vehicle warfare is still amazing. How did they dilute the game considering the fact that BF3 has what like 28 different maps to play. I'm sorry but i fail to see how that is diluting the game. It stays true to the squad based warfare. I have no idea what game you played Blank but it wasn't BF3. Anyway, i'm a fan of both franchises but BF3 is the better game plain and simple. As far as shooters go... BF4 and Killzone have my vote. Can't wait for either.

Going to doubt it, but it would be pretty cool if PS4 owners could jump into PS3 BF4 MP matches. Obviously, I can't see it going the other way as it's pretty much been confirmed that PS4 will have 64-player MP. Only PC's did that with BF3. We haven't heard of anything for PS3 and 360 regarding the BF4, but it's probably safe to assume that they'll still be stuck at 24-player MP again.

battlefield 4 is a must for me and will take up most of my time spent online , as far as cod ghost goes the 2 are in no way any competition bf4 heck bf3 is way more advance in so many ways the only game that i see that will give some kind of com is titan fall as its a new and fresh game , killzone will be a game i will also get but still they wont take away from bf4 as for haveing to be able to play 64 players 32 vs 32 on bf4 on the ps4 that alone will be hard to beat ,kingdom hearts 3 will be the game that may take some time away but thats until i beat / complete it and even then i will be playing bf4 this will be a great xmas this year its great to be able to experience great times like this
