Advertisement on Origin briefly mentions Battlefield 4 beta

By on

It’s no secret that Battlefield 4 is already in the works as it’s one of the most popular franchises in recent memory. EA president Frank Gibeau even confirmed its existence during a speech at the University of Southern California late last year but nothing else solid has materialized until this past weekend when a NeoGAF member spotted an advertisement mentioning the game.

The advertisement in question was for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, the upcoming sequel to 2010’s Medal of Honor series reboot. As seen in the screenshot below, anyone that pre-orders Warfighter will receive exclusive access to the Battlefield 4 beta. The offer is similar to one that EA ran in 2010 to promote MoH Limited Edition where early buyers could gain access to the Battlefield 3 beta.

The ad was promptly yanked from Origin but it seems the cat may have already been let out of the bag. According to VG24/7, the official Battlefield Twitter account responded by saying that if it wasn’t on Battlefield.com then it isn’t official. That post was later deleted.

As for the $69.99 price tag, we understand that this is for the Digital Deluxe Edition and there will still be a regular version priced at $59.99. It remains unclear if the BF4 beta access will only be available to those pre-ordering the more expensive title or when we might see an official announcement from EA or the Battlefield team.
