Leaked Battlefield 4 Poster a Fake, Release Date Still Unconfirmed
It may have looked convincing, but the recent Battlefield 4 poster is not official.
Just two days ago, an internal promotional poster from EB Games Australia highlighted a few unannounced details for the upcoming FPS Battlefield 4, which is set to release later this year. On the image, there was promise of the return of Commander Mode, Battlefield 4 Premium, and the previously teased Battlelog 2.0. However, according to the official EB Games Australia Twitter account, that poster was an absolute fake.
After being Tweeted at about the potential leak, a moderator for the EB Games account quickly debunked the rumor.
@gamedynamo We can confirm this is not one of our posters. Sorry to let you down guys, the date is still to be confirmed!— EB Games Australia (@EBGamesAus) April 25, 2013
Now, that doesn’t mean that this information isn’t true. Maybe the release date is off, but the following features, which were all listed on the poster, could still make their way into the blockbuster shooter later this year:
Armchair general: Rank up into the seat of the brand new Commander mode and lead your team to victory.
Battlelog 2.0: The next version of the state of the art gaming portal. Track every shot, every opponent, every detail of your online Battlefield career.
Go Premium: Stand out on the battlefield with exclusive uniforms, weapons, and more. Get exclusive expansions, starting with Drone Strike (TBA).”
Thrill Ride: Thrilling singleplayer campaign takes you all over the world as part of an elite squad of soldiers.
For now, we’ll stick with what we actually know. EA and DICE’s Battlefield 4 will be making its way to both current and next-generation platforms this year. Whether that date’s in September, October, or even later cannot be confirmed at this time.
