50w ago - DICE Community Manager Vincent Vukovic announced that the Battlefield 4 Open Beta starts today on PS3 with details below, as follows:

Help Us Make the Game Better

These are exciting times for Battlefield fans, and everyone at DICE! Today, we're releasing the Battlefield 4 open beta on PS3, and we want you all to join.

Simply by taking part in the beta, you'll help us test the servers, online functionality, and gameplay to make sure the PS3 launch on October 29th goes as smoothly as possible.

In the open beta, you'll be able to play both the classic Conquest mode and Domination, which you might recognize from Battlefield 3: Close Quarters (it's basically a faster and tighter version of Conquest, with more emphasis on infantry combat). The map on offer is Siege of Shanghai - you might recognize it from E3, when we first unveiled it and where the public got their very first hands-on with Battlefield 4.

Now, we want to bring that experience - complete with game-changing Levolution events like the big skyscraper collapsing or setting off car alarms - to all of our fans on PS3. It's you, the player, triggering these moments.

We're also looking to our fans to provide valuable feedback on the overall gaming experience. This is in every sense...
 

Sony Goes Hands on with Battlefield 4 Multiplayer on PS4

56w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Sid Shuman went hands on today with Battlefield 4 Multiplayer on PS4.

Below are the details, as follows: DICE's upcoming Battlefield 4 has captured the attention of military shooter enthusiasts for a host of reasons, not the least of which is the game's promise of 64-player multiplayer warfare running at a smooth 60 frames per second on PS4.

At Gamescom, I got some hands-on time with the first PS4 build of the game - we were among the first group to play the PS4 build outside of DICE. Here's a quick after-action report.

For starters, the game runs at fluid 60 fps and its benefits were instantly noticeable on PS4. This translates to a decidedly smoother, much more responsive feel compared to Battlefield 3 on PS3.

The speedy framerate means that the game simply controls better, whether you're quickly sweeping your aiming reticule to ward off a surprise close-range attack or making smaller aiming adjustments to nail a precise headshot. Sprinting and vaulting over low cover also feels much more responsive and gives you an edge in the game's sprawling battle zones, where death lurks around every corner and peers out of every window.

BF4 also benefits hugely from the many refinements of DualShock 4. The overhauled L2 and R2 triggers wrap...

57w ago - DICE Community Manager Vincent Vukovic revealed today that fans will be able to bring their PS3 stats to PlayStation 4 in Battlefield 4 on the upcoming PS4 video gaming and entertainment system.

To quote: This holiday, DICE will unwrap the next generation of all-out warfare with Battlefield 4. That means best-in-class multiplayer is coming to PS4 with huge 64-player battles, running at a smooth 60 frames-per-second.

Even if you start playing on PS3, we want to make your transition to PS4 easy. That's why we're notifying the devoted Battlefield and PlayStation communities that all of the time and effort you spend building up your Battlefield 4 stats will carry over when you upgrade to PS4.

That way, on October 29th, you can get in the game without any worries that you'll have to start ranking up all over again when PS4 launches. We got your back.

Today we also wanted to inform the community that DICE is promising to keep the action going all year long with the return of Premium membership for Battlefield 4.

With membership, players can expect themed digital expansion packs, new weekly content, and personalization options. And just as your stats, unlocks, and rank will be transferable from PS3 to PS4, so too will Battlefield 4 Premium membership.

Video: Wizarbox: Realms Of Ancient War Makes PSN Its Battlefield

50°
104w ago - Wizarbox Project Manager Julien Millet has posted up a video today announcing that Realms Of Ancient War is making PSN its Battlefield.

To quote: Hey there, it's Julien from [Register or Login to view links] here with word on our new game, Realms of Ancient War.

RAW has been in development for over two years, inspired by our deep love of hack 'n slash games. We've played practically every game in the genre (including some pretty obscure PS2 efforts) to seek out the best ideas from the past.

The rest of our inspiration comes from our designers, who came up with crazy ideas to give our title its own signature fast-and-furious style of action. Every decision was met with one simple question: "Is this a fun idea?"

• Do you want to spawn dozens of huge swords from the ground? Yes!

• Should the screen be covered with hordes of enemies, all hell-bent on the goal of killing you? Oh yes!

• What about taking mind-control of gigantic enemies, turning around and pounding the &@*% out of their minion buddies? Hell, YES!

• Maybe you could ride a flashy pink pony and battle your enemies with a giant toilet brush? Uh... let's forget that idea...
