DICE has launched the official Battlefield 4 teaser site, which you can find here. The teaser site doesn’t reveal much besides a BF4 background, obscured by a very nice rain effect. We’ve spared you the trouble to figure out the image in the background — you can check it out above.
The teaser site confirms that Battlefield 4 will be unveiled on March 27 with the very first gameplay video. Members of the press will get a sneak peak the day before at GDC, and surely something will leak from that. Yesterday, EA revealed the first teaser video, a few seconds that basically confirm the date once again. You can find the video after the break.
Judging by the teaser above and what we’ve seen so far, it looks like rain will be a big factor in Battlefield 4. Of course, it could be that DICE just like the look of it, kind of like the “glowing soldier” effect. The latest rumors suggest a dynamic weather feature in the game, so this might be the first indication of that. We’ll have to wait and see.
If you login to Battlelog and check out the teaser site, you’ll unlock a special Battlefield 4 dog tag, which basically states “ENLISTED”. If you don’t see the dog tag immediately, don’t worry, we hear it can take a few hours before it’s unlocked.

Back when the very first Battlefield 3 DLC launched, Back To Karkand, DICE hid a sweet little Easter Egg. It wasn’t much, just one of the boxes on Wake Island with “2143″ stamped on it. Now however, we get a much cooler Easter Egg with End Game.
The Easter Egg is nothing short of a tiny flying space ship, resembling of the fighter jets and drop ships found in BF 2142. Is DICE teasing Battlefield 2143 here? Probably not, as they’ve already stated that the upcoming Battlefield 4 will be set in modern times. But we can always hope that BF4 turns out to be Battlefield 2143.
How to find the Easter Egg: The Easter Egg in End Game can be found on the map Operation Riverside. However, it’s only found during the Capture The Flag mode. Go to the top western corner of the map (top left), and at the top of the little hill is where you’ll find the drop ship. Now arm yourself with a silenced weapon and every time someone comes to check out the attraction, take ‘em out!
The final Battlefield 3 DLC, End Game, is now out for Premium members on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. End Game includes 4 new maps, new vehicles, and new game modes as well. If you’re not a Premium member, you’ll have to wait another week for the DLC. In the meantime, you can check out some gameplay videos here.

DICE has released a bunch of new details about the last Battlefield 3 DLC: End Game. The new video shows off the new bikes in the game, the new screenshots show the new maps and environments, and finally, we’ve got some more details about the DLC itself.
First of all, the End Game will feature 4 new maps. They are called Operation Riverside, Kiasar Railroad, Nebandan Flats, and Sabalan Pipeline. Two of the maps will be heavily focused on motorcycles, with several spots where players can use to make huge jumps, according to DICE.

So far Battlefield 3 has sold millions of copies on PC, PlayStation 3, and the Xbox 360. And according to a recent job posting, EA and DICE might just bring the shooter franchise to the Mac OS X as well.
The job listing at DICE looks for a Mac OS X engineer to work on their Frostbite 2 engine, which powers Battlefield 3. If DICE is working on a Mac OS X version of Frostbite 2, it could mean that not only Battlefield 3 would be coming to Mac, but other games powered by Frostbite, such as Need For Speed The Run, and the highly disappointing Medal of Honor Warfighter.
