Battlefield 4 launching October 29; confirmed for Xbox One and PS4

With the next generation of consoles now revealed, EA has announced that Battlefield 4 will, surprise surprise, hit both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It also confirmed a release date for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 of October 29 but, as neither new system has a launch date yet, merely said it'll be on them this holiday season. The pre-order bonus will be BF4's first multiplayer DLC pack, named 'China Rising.'

"In this sprawling expansion, players fight for dominance across the vast and majestic Chinese mainland in four massive multiplayer maps, using all-new vehicles and high-tech military equipment," EA said of China Rising in today's announcement.

Pre-ordering the PC's Digital Deluxe edition, which costs $10 extra, from Origin also gets you unspecified extra in-game items and access to the multiplayer beta.

However, Battlefield 4 is not coming to Wii U. In fact, EA has no Wii U games in development.
