Battlefield 4 to be set in Shanghai

The Battlefield 4 teaser site has seemingly confirmed that the upcoming FPS will be set in the Chinese city of Shanghai.

An image of the Shanghai skyline appeared on the Battlefield 4 teaser site, which launched last week, in a flurry of new shots released when a user signs in.

Alongside the Shanghai tipster, EA also added pictures of could be a female Asian soldier and a burning naval aircraft carrier. Both of these images add to the allure of the upcoming Battlefield 4 game, potentially hinting to features of the soon to be unveiled FPS.

A new Battlefield 4 video was posted on the Battlefield YouTube channel recently, which showed a large rotating propeller. This, coupled with the latest released images, should mean Battlefield 4 will feature naval battles.

EA will be revealing more about Battlefield 4 at a dedicated event on March 26 at 7pm in San Francisco, timed to coincide with the Game Developers Conference. With the teaser site telling users to “Come back March 27 for a first look at gameplay” and EA confirming it will announce the Battlefield 4 release date at the event, we are sure to get much more of an idea of the series’ latest instalment soon.

What we do know is that Battlefield 4 will launch on the next-generation consoles, the yet to be confirmed Xbox 720 and the recently launched PS4. Despite the lack of game footage at the PS4 launch, EA has confirmed that Battlefield 4 will not be an Xbox 720 exclusive.

The eagerly-awaited follow up to the popular Battlefield 3 game, full details of the game still remain scarce, but with the launch event happening tomorrow, fans don’t have long to wait.
