Publisher EA previously confirmed that those who pre-ordered the Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition would be granted access to the Battlefield 4 beta in autumn 2013, while a DICE community manager later said the studio would be announcing other ways to gain entry.
Ahead of a Battlefield 4 reveal event at GDC tomorrow and the release of the first Battlefield 4 trailer, reports claim (via MP1st) that the Russian version of EA Origin lists "exclusive access to the beta version of Battlefield 4″ as a perk to being a BF3 Premium member.
We're likely to find out it that's the case or not later this week, but we've approached EA for comment anyway and will update this story if we hear back.
Battlefield 4 will continue the series' focus on modern warfare, according to DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson, who said last August. "We feel this is a place we can be and continue with the series. Battlefield 4 can live in this space and be very successful."
The Battlefield 4 release date is expected to fall in the fourth quarter of 2013.
