It's been less than a week since Battlefield 4 was officially announced and revealed in spectacular fashion, with 17 minutes of gameplay footage that knocked us off our feet. Now that everyone's in agreement that the game looks great, EA's stepped in phase 2. That's right, let's talk what it's going to take to get you to preorder this bad boy. How about... DLC!
A leaked promotional image for Battlefield 4 has been sighted teasing a "Drone Strike Expansion Pack" piece of DLC that will come with pre-orders. Fans can expect both the game and this special DLC bonus to be available this fall. Also, I mean, that dude on the box looks totally rad and you'd hate to miss out and not be that guy.
Official word from EA is that "Drone Strike" is still unofficial, though we've got to wonder why promotional material is out in the wild for an unofficial DLC pack. Here's the Twitter message backing up on the DLC's title:
@gsamr Drone Strike was a working title. The title and contents of this Premium expansion pack are still being designed.— Battlefield (@Battlefield) March 29, 2013
Battlefield 4 is currently planned for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and next-gen consoles, to be released this fall. Preorders for the PC version of the game are currently running at $60, with a $70 option that includes some smaller DLC items for dedicated players. The price point for the game on next-gen systems has yet to be determined.
