Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month Kicks Off in February
EA and DICE’s Battlefield 4 has been plagued with issues since it launched on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Bugs, crashes, connection issues, corrupted save data; Battlefield 4 has enraged players with them all. Of course, DICE has been hard at work attempting to resolve these issues, and to show players how much they appreciate their patience – not the word I’d use, personally; have you seen some of the discussion going on in Internet forums? – DICE has announced that Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month will officially get underway on 1st February.
From that date and throughout the entire month, Battlefield 4 players will receive a bronze Battlepack on every weekday they log into the game, and a silver Battlepack on Saturdays and Sundays. DICE estimates that to earn that many Battlepacks through regular play would take approximately thirty hours, so it’s well worth logging on to receive those extra weapon mods, soldier camos and XP boosts.
Next up, there’s the weapon shortcut packs. To make up for all the time you spent rebooting the game or sitting around waiting for matches to load, all Battlefield 4 players will be able to download two weapon shortcut packs that automatically unlock every grenade and pistol in the base game (DLC weapons aren’t included). Battlefield 4 Premium members will also find two additional weapon shortcut packs available; one for shotguns and one for DMR’s. All weapon shortcut packs will be available free of charge throughout February.
During Player Appreciation Month, DICE will also be running a Double XP weekend for all players, while Premium members will also be able to participate in an additional Double XP weekend on top of that. Furthermore, DICE will also be setting up global community challenges – the first of which will task players with obtaining a cumulative amount of dog tags – and hosting DICE Developer Talks. More details on these will be made available in the coming weeks.
