We’ve had a few hints for a possible Battlefield 4 release date: Microsoft leaked that the game would be hitting the store shelves in North america on October 29, while EA’s own Origin platform leaked a October 31 release date in Europe. EA has since backtracked on that, saying the Battlefield 4 release date was just a placeholder.
But now it appears it’s more than just a placeholder date. According to an ad from GameStop (seen below), Battlefield 4 will indeed be released on October 29, 2013. The poster reveals GameStop’s pre-order bonus, which includes a set of real dog tags, and the first Battlefield 4 expansion, called “Drone Strike Expansion“.
Battlefield 4 has been available for pre-order for a few weeks now, and has already risen to the top of the pre-order charts. If you’re interested in upgrading your PC hardware for Battlefield 4, you might want to wait until launch, as AMD will offer you a free copy of the game with the purchase of a Radeon HD graphics card.
