“We’re in daily playtesting mode right now: polishing, balancing and making the best Battlefield game we can,” Gabrielson said. “I can tell you it’s a bold move. It has everything we love about Battlefield – and takes everything to the next level. Epic scale. All-out military warfare. Crazy, unexpected moments. Game-changing destruction. Massive battles, packed with more players and chaos than ever before. Everything brought to life with the power of the next generation of consoles and PCs. ”
