DICE has confirmed that pre-ordering Medal of Honor: Warfighter won't be the only way to gain access to the Battlefield 4 beta.
Battlefield 3 community manager Ian Tornay stated that beta access to the shooter isn't exclusive to pre-ordering Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
"There will be other ways to get into the beta aside from MoH Warfighter. At this time, however, it is the only way to guarantee entry."
Adding to developer DICE's statement regarding its commitment to Battlefield 3 after its successor's confirmation, Tornay assured that the shooter will still be supported in the future.
"DICE and EA are dedicated to continuing our support for Battlefield 3. Just as we’ve continued to support and maintain Bad Company 2, we intend to continue providing the best Battlefield 3 experience we can well into the future and past the release of End Game and Battlefield 4.
"There are several teams at DICE. Starting work on Battlefield 4 does not mean that we will be abandoning Battlefield 3 or working any less hard to bring you the best expansions we can. We’ve been seeing a lot of concerns about the pacing of release (i.e. ‘only’ two years after BF3). I think it’s worth noting that DICE has released a Battlefield game every two years or sooner and Mirror’s Edge at least every two years.
"I truly believe that we’re in one of the best positions to be creating our next title – Frostbite 2 has matured, we’ve been gathering fan feedback like crazy, Battlefield 3 continues to expand with features which we can learn from, and we’ve got more data about how people play than ever."
Tornay also said DICE is listening to fan feedback stemming from Battlefield 3, with major issues to be addressed in Battlefield 4. Some of these include a more solid VOIP solution, a Spectator Mode and a Battle Recorder.
