Stocks in this article: EA

In just five days, all-out warfare begins on the PlayStation® 4. Battlefield 4™, the latest in the global blockbuster series from DICE, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) studio, hits shelves for the PlayStation 4 on November 12 and a week later (Nov. 19) for Xbox One, all in anticipation of the launch of a new era in console gaming. Never before have console players been able to experience best-in-class multiplayer shooter action with 64 people on the battlefield at 60 frames per second.

“I could give you 64 reasons why Battlefield 4 is the can’t-miss game of this year, but here’s the one you need: critics are saying Battlefield 4 is the first great first-person shooter of the next-generation,” said Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer of Electronic Arts. “With the superior technology of Frostbite 3, vast environments for online team play, and the only game with 64-player multiplayer all-out warfare, Battlefield 4 is ready to bring the next-generation to life.”

In preparation for the only title that will bring 64-player online multiplayer to next-gen this year, DICE today unveiled the first in a blog series of “ 64 Reasons to Play Battlefield 4 on Next-Gen – the definitive guide to why Battlefield 4 is the biggest, most immersive, most technologically-advanced action title for the new consoles.

“Every day in our stores, we’re seeing the excitement build for the upcoming launch of the next-generation of video gaming,” said Bob Puzon, Senior Vice President of Merchandising at GameStop. “EA has the most cumulative launch-title pre-orders of any publisher, driven by a great lineup that truly reveals the power of the new gaming consoles.”

The long wait is just about over. Battlefield 4, along with Madden NFL 25 and FIFA 14 and will be available for the PlayStation®4 starting November 12 in North America and November 29 in Europe, and for Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, starting November 19 in North America and November 22 in Europe. Need for Speed™ Rivals will be coming to PlayStation 4 on November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe, and to Xbox One on November 22 in North America and Europe. NBA LIVE 14 will also be available starting on November 19 for both platforms.
