Gamers brace yourselves for the demise of multiplayer options for Battlefield 3, 4, and Hardline on Xbox 360, set for November 7th. On a positive note, Xbox One versions of Battlefield 4 and Hardline will continue to feed your gaming addictions.

In a move that is bittersweet to many, Electronic Arts (EA) has announced the planned shutdown of servers for some of its popular gaming titles - Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, and Battlefield Hardline - all on the Xbox 360 platform. This change is slated to occur on the 7th of November.

Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline aficionados can continue their battle-scarred adventures without any interruption, provided they switch over to the Xbox One platform. It is interesting to note that both these games have standalone versions specifically for Xbox One, where multiplayer gaming will remain accessible.

However, fans of Battlefield 3 may need to brace themselves for disappointment. While the game is playable on contemporary consoles via backward compatibility, it does appear that its multiplayer functionality will be a casualty of this server shutdown on Xbox 360 consoles.

If you're an Xbox 360 gamer and looking to continue your multiplayer adventures, now might be a good time for the console upgrade you've been pondering.
