The Battlefield 4 beta will launch in autumn 2013, EA has announced.

As was previously leaked, access to the beta will be granted to those who pre-order the Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition prior to the game's release.

Additional details regarding Battlefield 4 will be revealed at a later date.

"Though Battlefield and Medal of Honor Warfighter each offer players a completely unique experience, they are united by their underlying technology base - Frostbite. These are two of the hottest shooters, coming together to deliver a one-two punch of action, intensity and shooter entertainment," said Frank Gibeau, president of EA Labels.

Medal of Honor Warfighter will launch in the UK on October 26 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
