"We'll definitely do Premium for Battlefield 4," he told Digital Spy. "It was so well received and we got good feedback from the community, so it's definitely something we're going to continue with."

Gustavsson also confirmed a report earlier this week that existing Battlefield 3 Premium subscribers would gain access to the beta.

Access will also be available via the Digital Deluxe edition through Origin and owners of Medal of Honor: Warfighters's Limited Edition.

It was added that the beta will launch in late 2013, and that a "clearer message" on more precise timings will be delivered in the coming months.

Announced today (March 27), Battlefield 4 will be powered by the next-generation Frostbite 3 engine.

The single player will offer more open, sandbox gameplay moments following feedback from Battlefield 3's campaign.

It also aims to deliver a more emotionally impactful story, closely following your fellow soldiers against the backdrop of an impending world war.

The campaign is teased to also offer elements of social persistence, while multiplayer introduces new water vehicles and will add innovations to the franchise.

Battlefield 4 will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in late 2013.
