Electronic Arts has confirmed that Battlefield 4 is officially on the way, and those who pick up Medal of Honor: Warfighter on October 23rd will have first access to the upcoming online beta when it launches in fall 2013. It’s clearly a pre-order incentive, but a cool one for fans who enjoy the series.


But despite this announcement, DICE isn’t ready to close the door on Battlefield 3 just yet. There are still several expansions coming to the released shooter, including Armored Kill, End Game and Aftermath, along with other content.


“We are extremely proud of Battlefield 3, and with millions of fans out there, we’re happy you’re enjoying it too,” DICE stated on their official page. “When we launched the game, we introduced unparalleled levels of in-game destruction, all-out vehicle warfare and redefined online gameplay.”


They continued, “Even with billions of bullets fired and millions of games played, we know the Battlefield 3 story is still just the beginning. As ever, we are humbled by the community’s response to the game, and couldn’t be happier with the feedback we have received to Battlefield 3 Premium. With the Back To Karkand and Close Quarters expansion packs already out, Armored Kill around the corner, and End Game and Aftermath still on the horizon, we’re still looking forward to many more hours of gameplay with you, and can’t wait to see the stories you will tell through Battlelog and player created videos.”


So, here’s to more shooting!
