Though EA has already announced that the other lawsuit would be deemed "meritless" in the end, this new one seems to be targeting an even bigger scale. According to GameSpot, the new lawsuit is aiming to seek out EA shareholders that would participate, particularly because senior EA executives were claimed to have withheld information on the shareholders and the public about the condition of "Battlefield 4" when it releases to consumers.
This still boils down to how, because of the mentioned incident, shares of EA not only declined, but there was also talk of how higher execs in EA sold their shaers before the release of "Battlefield 4."

It doesn't help that there are other issues that seem to just be fueling the fire even more, the latest involving the Chinese media in relation to the China Rising DLC. Forbes reports that the add-on pack is seen as a way of putting a negative spin to China's image abroad.
For the critics, the main problem seems to lie with how China is now being seen as the main villain in war games, particularly those that are populated by American soldiers and heroes.
At least for now, "Battlefield 4" has not yet seen a release in China, though given all the problems with the game, it might be best to examine the financial repercussions and rewards of a release in the region, considering the reception of the Chinese media of the China Rising DLC.
On the other side of shooter games, Activision has just announced what gamers can look forward to with the season pass of "Call of Duty: Ghosts," which will be made available for £34.99.
Eurogamer reports that there will be four map packs, namely Onslaught, Nemesis, Devastation and Invasion, all of which are scheduled for release on 2014; a revamped Extinction mode; and access to Free Fall (the multiplayer map) and the Team Leader digital content pack. The last freebie will reel in camp, weapons, character heads, player and background, reticle and a player patch to create a character's own personal style.
Upgrading for a next-gen console is also available for the season pass, if players get it before May 31, 2014.
