DICE Throws Down An Intercontinental Challenge: Who Takes Top Billing In Battlefield 4 – USA Or Europe?

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced Battlefield 4™: Showdown Live Europe vs. USA, where two teams of 32-players will compete in an event in London, UK. The event will be live streamed on Xbox Live online entertainment network from Microsoft on November 1 at 10:00AM PDT. The Showdown will mark the debut of Battlefield 4 Second Assault, an expansion pack available at launch first on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. Battlefield 4 Second Assault includes four fan-favorite Battlefield 3™ maps re-imagined with the power of Frostbite™ 3. Top-tier Battlefield players will be hand selected to represent their country as they battle it out on Xbox One.

Xbox Live’s Major Nelson and AceyBongos will command their respective squads to lead their teams to victory. Starting today and ending on Sunday, October 6, Xbox is offering one lucky gamer in the USA the chance to be on Major Nelson’s side by entering the Battlefield 4 “Play and Win” sweepstakes*. Players can download the Battlefield 4 Gamer Pic and play the Battlefield 4 beta** on Xbox Live this weekend for a chance to win a trip for two to London, two passes to the event, a seat on the USA team and a $500 gift card.

Starting today, the Battlefield 4 open beta is available for all gamers worldwide and will feature the Siege of Shanghai map on the popular Conquest mode. Players will experience the next level of all-out warfare with a new design concept called Levolution. This concept can alter the gameplay combat anytime during a multiplayer match as the environment reacts to the player’s every move. The Battlefield 4 open beta is available for the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PC.

Battlefield 4 will be available October 29 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 console and PC. Battlefield 4 will be in stores November 19 on Xbox One (November 22 in Europe) and November 12 on PlayStation®4 (November 29 in Europe).
