EA has confirmed the European release date for the next-gen versions of Battlefield 4, FIFA 14 and Madden NFL 25 and they’ll be available before the Xbox One launches.

As confirmed by EA CEO Peter Moore, the three games will be available on November 19th in North America and November 21st in Europe, while the console itself launches on November 22nd.

All three games will launch on current-gen systems first, however. “These games on PS3 and Xbox 360 are the pinnacle of this console generation,” says Moore.

Battlefield 4 players will be able to transfer their multiplayer progression and Premium membership DLC from current-gen consoles to next-gen consoles. FIFA 14 Ultimate Teams and Madden NFL 25 content can also carry over.

Moore adds, “Offers from many of our retail partners will help you buy Battlefield 4, FIFA 14 or Madden NFL 25 on the Xbox 360 or PS3, and then upgrade to an Xbox One or PS4 version for as little as $10.”

Doesn't really matter. Though it seems a bit... pointless.

This is handy for me; I have BF4 pre-ordered with Amazon, but will be picking my One up from the GAME midnight launch. Now I won't have to wait for the next days post to play it, it'll already be there when I get home.

This is know different then the xbox 360 launch as I remember already having my extra controller, charge kit, and 3 games.

The reason for it is some stores that do a midnight launch can only get the system not any games (its strange but my local store does this)

At this point, I'm not buying any "new" games for the 360. Just going to clear my back catalogue and save for the next ten weeks or so we have before the next gen.

It's hurting me now, with GTA about to drop and all, but I'm saving money in the end.

i dont care about the next gen as much.. 360 have been my joy for the time and im not takeing PS4 or One into my most wanted list becouse i dont know how they will run. we have had some great years with the 360 like Moden Warfare series and Eternal Sonata and all other goodies that GTA V will come to 360 i see as a boost for me atleast becouse Xbox one might be a win or fail, as so gose to the PS4 one major thing i see is that i need to throw away all my 150+ games for the xbox 360 for a new one. no one is made of money. i dont like it that ppl are like "just take my money JUST TAKE IT!" some ppl dont have that luxery :P

Yeah, its kind of a good thing. I may pick it up (even if its only 2 days early) just so I have it available for when I get my X1.

(Ordered it off Amazon)

It's cool that you can transfer your progression and Premium membership, but does anybody know if you you can transfer from 360 to PS4? My brother is getting a PS4 and would like to know.

This is like buying a new car and getting £20 worth of full to put in it 2 days before you get it. Only an EA employee (The CEO no less) would see this as a benefit to his customers, file under more evidence that when it comes to marketing EA haven't got a clue.

@3 Yep. And if further proof was needed if the picture scrolled down you would see several slaughtered Afghan women and children.

I'm buying multiple games for my Xbox One Day One Console, just so I know I will have something to play.

So far I have bought BF4, Assassins Creed: Black Flag, CoD, Dead Rising. and Ryse.

nice lineup for launch day.

Lol "These games on PS3 and Xbox 360 are the pinnacle of this console generation,”

We already know from several different sources... FIFA 14 on 360 is just FIFA 13 with new kits and teams... But the Xbox one version looks, plays and feels better.

Why lie EA? Why?

I asked Game whether they were doing this "Upgrade Offer" to receive the not-very-surprising reply of "We have no plans to offer any such promotion at this time." Nothing like enticing gamers around a console launch to build some brand loyalty Game... well done.
