The lights are on
Battlefield 4 will contain three playable factions and the return of Commander Mode, if video evidence is to be believed. A YouTube user visited their local GameStop and caught footage of some rough-looking signage that makes those claims.
Luger700 posted the footage of the signs, which includes stuff we knew (Frostbite 3 destruction, vehicles) and a few other details, including three factions (Russia, China, the U.S.), and the return of Battlefield 2's Commander mode. In that mode, one player managed the battle from above – dropping supplies, ordering troop placement, and controlling artillery strikes. According to the video, one of the clerks secured the info "direct from EA."
It would be cool to see the mode return, but keep your expectations low for the time being. The purported signage is about as low-rent as it gets, with noticeably poor print quality, and cropped and missing logos. If EA or GameStop (our parent company) are going to be distributing these to a few thousand locations, odds are they'll be enlisting the help of a professional printer and not pushing an employee's deskjet to the limits.

I feel like Gamestop made these posters themselves. Which doesn't necessarily make the information unreliable, but the poor quality of the material makes it less believable.
Funny how this info wasn't immediately confirmed by Gamestop to GI despite GI being owned by the same company that owns Gamestop. Just an observation.
Sounds like fun.
Haha, maybe I should work for GameStop and just make video game advertisements all day. I'm pretty sure I could do better than that. Besides the poor quality, I think a company like GameStop would know better than to attempt to sell a game to people based on information they weren't 100% sure about. I'm willing to bet that this is true.
Why is the poster cut off at the right of it? Also I have never seen a yellow GameStop before.
A I hate mondays kind of work on that sign.
Commander mode returns, and so do frag rounds! In every gun!!!!
Haven't played a BF game. This one definitely has caught my eye. Hoping it lives up to the hype that other shooter games garner.
Is that Commander mode part of online multiplayer? Cause if so, that's pretty awesome.
Commander Mode is coming back? YEEEEAAAAAH!
Thats a custom made printed out item. not a legit thing...someone might be trolling...
fake. besides the things that the author mentioned, look at the wording. "RESERVE" instead of "PRE-ORDER". "FIRST EXPANSION PACK FOR FREE WITH RESERVATION" instead of "Pre-Order Battlefield 4 and receive the Battlefield 4 Premium Expansion Pack!" Little things besides the poor quality let it be known it's fake. What it's talking about may be real, but this post is a bust.
Battlefield 4, you I love most.
They really gotta wrap up this game
