DICE announced that it will be unveiling Battlefield 4 multiplayer at this year’s E3 with a live demo at “The Download: EA 2013 Preview” press conference taking place at 9:00 pm GMT on Monday, June 10th. Fans attending E3 will have the chance to go hands-on with multiplayer in EA’s booth located at #1601 in the South Hall. DICE will also be live streaming their entire E3 booth experience including multiplayer matches complete with commentary.
In addition, DICE revealed that players that pre-order Battlefield 4 will receive the Battlefield 4 China Rising premium digital expansion pack at no additional cost. In this first expansion, players will fight for dominance across the vast and majestic Chinese mainland in four massive multiplayer maps, using all-new vehicles and high-tech military equipment.
In short, DICE and Electronic Arts are already milking this fourth part of the Battlefield series. Yes yes, we love hearing that the development for this expansion will start after the end of the main game’s development. So, and since this expansion is announced today, does this mean that the main game ready? And if so, why is EA delaying it until October?
