Glock, Stockholm and Two Smoking Barrels

Tired of the incessant cold weather here in the UK, we jumped at the chance to hop on a flight and travel to distant shores. All in the name of gaming of course! Ok, so the distance was two and half hours, and the shores were actually the chilly city centre of Stockholm, but games enthusiasts are not to be deterred by minus temperatures; particularly when there are rumours of the premiere for one of the EA Games’ biggest launches of 2013.

Renowned for some beautiful scenery and its effortless cool, Stockholm is home to DICE, the developer behind the acclaimed Battlefield series. Following the huge success of Battlefield 3 in 2011, lucky media from across the globe were invited to get the first glimpse of the highly anticipated Battlefield 4 before anyone else, and get some exclusive insights from the worryingly slick Swedish team behind the game’s creation. Free drinks at the bar, and the world’s largest buffet all helped to launch Battlefield 4 to some its most hardcore fans, and of course there’s nothing like a dark cinema and surround sound to heighten the excitement!
