EA has spilled details on the hotly-anticipated Battlefield 4, promising guaranteed access to the beta of the new game to those who pre-order Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition ahead of its October 23 debut. Battlefield 4 isn't set to arrive until fall 2013, but EA is already hoping to drum up interest – and spur sales of the latest Medal of Honor installment – by restricting early access to those who slap down some cash ahead of time.

Each game occupies different universes, but both use the same underlying Frostbite 2 engine. "Though Battlefield and Medal of Honor Warfighter each offer players a completely unique experience, they are united by their underlying technology base – Frostbite" Frank Gibeau, EA president insists. "These are two of the hottest shooters, coming together to deliver a one-two punch of action, intensity and shooter entertainment."

The Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition also includes access to the U.S. Navy SEAL sniper and McMillan TAC-300 sniper rifles, though you'll need to play for about 40hrs in multiplayer mode before you get your hands on them. The game is available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Medal of Honor Warfighter Limited Edition is priced at $60 and will be released on October 23.
