DICE Announces Battlefield 4 Battlefest

/ 2 years ago


EA Studio, DICE, has announced a month long “festival” of gaming on Battlefield 4. It involves free camos, double XP events, daily screenshot contests and an overall stunt video challenge. The prize for the winner of the daily screenshot challenge will win an AMD graphics card, $50 gift card to the DICE Store, and a Battlefield 4 Premium membership on their platform of choice. That’s pretty generous of EA to be dishing out hardware daily for a month and the fact that the winner win all 3 prizes makes it that extra bit special.

There will be a opening double XP weekend for all Battlefield 4 players to celebrate the launch of Battlefest from July 12th to 13th. After this the other initiatives will start to be dished out.

Check out what initiatives DICE will be rolling out during Battlefest.

– Free Camo Unlocks
Each week we will be releasing a free camo in-game for all players.  This will give you more ways to standout on the battlefield.

– Double XP
As noted above, we’re kicking Battlefest off with a double XP weekend and we’re definitely going to end with one too for all players to reap the benefits.

– Community Missions
Each week we will be hosting a global community challenge to reach a specific goal in-game.  If you reach the goal, everyone who logs in will receive a free gold Battlepack the following week.  The first mission starts on July 15, 2014, where you will have to collectively reach 15 million revives across all platforms, with the mission ending on the eve of July 20, 2014.

– Stunt Video Competition
This a month long contest where we are asking you to send us your best stunt video that can only be done in Battlefield 4. Once we receive the submissions, the DICE team will pick the top 12 and then you, the fans, will vote on the top three winners to win a massive prize.

The sole purpose of this event is to thank the community for their constant support for the title and their patience, their many months of patience whilst DICE worked tirelessly to fix the huge problems the game had at launch. Throughout the Battlefest there will also be fixes from both DICE studios, Stockholm and LA,  to enhance gameplay and give better overall performance.

Can’t wait for this to start myself, anyone else excited?

Thanks to Battlefield for providing us with this information.
