Battlefield 4 will be releasing this fall for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, EA announced at an event in San Francisco.

The game, developed by DICE, will run on the Frostbite 3 engine.

Players who pre-order the game at retail outlets will receive the Premium expansion pack. Origin, EA’s online distribution service for PC games, will have a Battlefield 4 Digital Deluxe version of the game that includes a digital download of Battlefield 4, the Premium expansion, early access to the game’s multiplayer beta and bonus in-game content.

EA released a 17-minute long gameplay trailer for Battlefield 4. The trailer, made up entirely of in-game footage, follows a group of four soldiers, including the playable character. The soldiers start in a submerged vehicle facing the difficult decision to leave one behind. It then flashes back to a series of events that led the group of four to be submerged under water.

Battlefield 4′s first gameplay trailer includes plenty of drama, vehicles and explosions. Environments are fully destructible, with the playable character shown in the trailer shooting his way through walls and entire buildings disintegrating. The trailer also shows multiple vehicles being used in action. It is definitely not for the faint of heart, as the playable character must amputate part of the leg off of his fellow soldier at one point during the trailer.

The game was confirmed to exist last month via a post on the official EA company blog. Release plans for PlayStation 4 and a future unannounced Microsoft console have not been detailed, although it is safe to assume Battlefield 4 will also release on next-gen consoles.

The 17-minute long gameplay trailer for Battlefield 4 can be viewed below.
