Get ready to level up your soldiers!
by Jayden Perry
Battlefield 4 fans rejoice! In DICE's latest press release, company VP and GM, Karl Magnus Troedsson, addresses the success and issues surrounding the recent release of the title on five platforms. He also gives us some good news, that all these issues are being worked on as a priority for the whole team to make the game as stable and bug free as it can be.
He also lets us know that beginning on November 28th we will get a week's worth of double XP, up until December 5th on all platforms. They are also unlocking a pistol scope, the 3x zoom scope for the M1911, for the general public, previously only available to the internal developers.
The press release is as follows;
“Last Friday we launched Battlefield 4 on Xbox One. With that console, we will have brought Battlefield 4 to no less than five platforms. It is amazing to see such a complex universe come to life across so many advanced hardware systems. Millions of people around the world are playing the game and seeing the tip of the iceberg of what the next generation has to offer. At DICE, we are committed to you, the fans, and view the game as a live service. I am extremely proud of the people at DICE and everyone across EA that contributed to the development of Battlefield 4. However, I am less proud to see that the game has experienced some turbulence during the launch period. While some platforms have had only minor problems, others have had more than their fair share of issues. Resolving the launch issues is our #1 priority. In fact, we are so serious that we have the entire team working to stabilize the game and we will not move on to other projects until we are sure that Battlefield 4 meets – and exceeds – your expectations. It is the right thing to do.
To show our appreciation for your patience as we work through these issues, we are announcing that from November 28 through December 5, we will reward all players with Double XP for every multiplayer match they complete. We understand that the launch issues may have impacted your progression, and we want to do everything we can to help you get back the XP that you may have lost. Also, to cap off the week, on December 5 we will give all players that log in to Battlefield 4 multiplayer a M1911 pistol scope. This special sidearm scope, previously reserved for our DICE developers, has a 3X zoom and is available for all classes in Battlefield 4.
You are the heart and soul of Battlefield. We thank you for your support in these early days of the launch, and will continue to show our appreciation as time goes on. To stay informed about the latest game updates, please visit us at Battlefield 4 Control Room or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.”
Be sure to let all your fellow Battlefield players know that this is the time to play Battlefield 4 and power through the levels a little faster than usual. I will certainly be online to take advantage of DICE’s generosity, and its great to see that the company is addressing it’s issues and looking out for its players and fan base.
Battlefield is out now for all platforms except the Playstation 4, which it will release alongside on Friday 29th November. If you haven’t checked it out yet, this weekend is a great time to pick it up and play!
See you on the Battlefield, soldiers.
