Last night DICE announced Battlefest – a small token of their appreciation for our commitment to Battlefield 4.
To get Battlefest started, they’re giving everyone double XP this weekend. They also promise to end with one too.
Between Saturday and August 13th there will also be a daily contest, called Battleshots, where they’ll be asking you to send a screenshot in Battlefield 4 based on a different theme requirement. Each daily winning entry will receive an AMD graphics card, $50 gift card to the DICE Store, and a Battlefield 4 Premium membership on their platform of choice.
Other Battlefest initiatives include…
- Free Camo Unlocks. Each week they will be releasing a free camo in-game for all players.
- Community Missions. Each week they 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 15th, where you will have to collectively reach 15 million revives across all platforms, with the mission ending on the eve of July 20th.
- Stunt Video Competition. This a month long contest where DICE are asking you to send them your best stunt video that can only be done in Battlefield 4. The DICE team will pick the top 12 and then we, the fans, will vote on the top three winners to win a massive prize.
The whole thing is due to run for about a month (12th July – 13th August) and they also promise more surprises in the next couple of weeks.
