Battlefield 4 will be the only game to support 64 players on next-generation consoles this year
EA announced a while back that it would be offering its new FPS title Battlefield 4 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on launch day. The PlayStation 4 is set to launch on November 12 with the Xbox One coming November 19. EA is now bragging that Battlefield 4 will be the first next-generation console shooter to support 64 players on a multiplayer map.
Not only will the game support that many players on a single map, it will also do it at 60 frames per second. EA says that Battlefield 4 will be the only game for next-generation consoles this year allowing 64 players on a single map. I can only imagine the carnage that will take place on small maps with 64 players battling it out.
“I could give you 64 reasons why Battlefield 4 is the can’t-miss game of this year, but here’s the one you need: critics are saying Battlefield 4 is the first great first-person shooter of the next-generation,” said Peter Moore, Chief Operating Officer of Electronic Arts. “With the superior technology of Frostbite 3, vast environments for online team play, and the only game with 64-player multiplayer all-out warfare,Battlefield 4 is ready to bring the next-generation to life.”
