Battlefield 4: Showdown Live

The official Battlefield Blog announced today that a head-to-head matchup between Europe and the USA will take place on November 1 at 10:00 AM PDT.  From the blog:

“Xbox Live’s Major Nelson and AceyBongos will each command their own team of 32 players on Xbox One. You’ll get the first look at the Battlefield 4 Second Assault expansion pack, which debuts at the Showdown and brings four re-imagined Battlefield 3 maps to Battlefield 4.”

Battlefield 4 releases October 29.  This means a mere three days after release, we will get our first glimpse at the second DLC pack of the game, by watching two teams play live on the re-imagined BF3 maps.

There is a chance to get to play in this match-up for Xbox players.  Again, from the blog:

“One lucky player from the USA will get the chance to be on Major Nelson’s team by entering Xbox’s “Play and Win” sweepstakes. Download the Battlefield 4 Gamer Pic and play the Battlefield 4 beta on Xbox Live this weekend for a chance to win a trip for two to London, two passes to the event, a seat on the USA team and a $500 gift card. Play while you can – the sweepstakes ends on October 6.
