Battlefield 4 Themed Merchandise

Battlefield 4′s beta is almost over and we’ll soon have 2 weeks (3 weeks for non USA folk) to wait for the release of the retail version and all its glory. EA and other manufactures hope to make Battlefield a pop culture brand by releasing multiple branded accessories. iPhone cases, headsets, mouse mats, books, T-shirts, posters and more are already available for those that can’t get enough BF4.

This will be our biggest and best planned campaign to date,” EA’s senior brand licensing manager Stephen Wanigesekera stated. “This range will help the specialists diversify their offerings, whilst more mass market retailers will be interested in items that can enlarge their established categories, such as peripherals, books and apparel. There is a great opportunity to position the merchandise alongside the software itself.
