This is followed by a title screen that directs you to watch a five-minute multiplayer demo on Battlefield’s official site, which is not yet available. The release date then flashes on-screen.This makes three Battlefields in a row to be released in late October, which–if patterns repeat–put them a week or two ahead of Call of Duty’s annual November release."

The intention is to keep moment-to-moment League of Legends the same while improving gameplay through additional clarity.”"
