We're not sure on the original source of the leak, or if it even was one, but a trio of images that appear to be the first stills from Battlefield 4 have found their way online ahead of EA's official reveal event, which is taking place soon at GDC 2013 in San Francisco (thanks NeoGAF).

The legitimacy of the images seems to be confirmed by the fact that they can be found hosted on the official battlefield blog's webserver, although a post by the blog has yet to be published. Hit the thumbs below for a closer look, and marvel at a next-generation flock of birds.

Much more details, and some manner of gameplay footage are expected following the official unveiling. So stay tuned.

Guess it's still using Frostbite 2 engine since the scope on the 3rd picture still uses a baked reflection instead of showing what's actually in front of the scope.

is that joey from friends in the second screenshot?

^ was about to ask the same thing ... lol

also third screenshot appears to be painted/skybox beyond the dirt in front of them?

Bad Company 3?
Posted 12:18pm 27/3/13

I can't remember the last time I saw actual gameplay footage/screenshots from EA that hadn't been touched up to a ridiculous degree. Of course, these are even further removed.

So I guess the "big reveal" is tomorrow our time?
Posted 12:46pm 27/3/13
Sigh, I guess this means the reveal will just be single player stuff. Which I'm sure will look cool but like BF3, it'll ultimately be pointless.

Basically looks no different to BF3, which I don't really think is that bad and it's unrealistic to expect a big leap. I also actually think the first BF3 screen shots looked better.

I just hope this is a fuller featured version of BF3, where they really expand and do more with the maps and game play. Just build more into the game, and properly use destruction. I've been playing some BC2 again recently. Some of those maps, the destruction is awesome and it's actually part of game play and alters it. I so miss that.

So yeah basically, like everyone else, I want this to be what I wanted BF3 to be. Which is essentially what modders could have turned BF3 into if there were mod tools.

nope, in 4 hours

It'll be interesting to see the 17 minutes of game play. I just hope it's not all SP. It shows MP. It actually shows off some of the features. Not just watching a movie of someone playing a scripted game.

Anyway here's the first vid in low quality.

SP stuff.

Apparently there will be 17 minutes of gameplay revealed later today as well so hopefully not just the singleplayer.

nope, it's using frostbite 3
Posted 03:30pm 27/3/13
Apparently that 17 minutes is just SP.

So it'll be basically like watching an animated movie. Which is essentially all the SP will be.

No one will buy this for the SP, so why do this. Unless... they haven't made the MP yet!

The screenshots look cartoonie? Perhaps the Battlefield franchise is following the CoD model a release every year.

Graphics don't look that good because the leap from BF2 -> BF3 was huge, the leap from BF3 to BF4 isn't as huge.

Battlefield series has had (more or less) a biennial release since 1942.

Why do gamers always jump to such hugely ridiculous conclusions? Literally millions of people will buy this for single player and barely touch multi, as is the case with BF3. BF3 was a pretty huge success, and whether longtime multiplayer PC gamers like it or not, a part of that was SP... of course they are going to advertise the s*** out of the single player campaign again, it worked last time.

I liked BF3's SP portion better than BC2's to be honest

BF3 SP was just one giant cut scene :(

Lol @ pythons screenshot. Hated the massive sunlight glare of BF3. Dont care if its realistic or not, just let me see what im f*****g looking at. Didnt mind the suppression element though - at least that served a purpose.
