Developer DICE has announced that players will get Double XP for every multiplayer match they play from the 28th of the month through December 5th as a ‘thank you’ for your patience while they sort out some issues.
Keeping a popular multiplayer game gong on one platform can be enough of a challenge, but keeping it going on five? Yeah, that’s not all that simple by any means. As a result of all the different versions of Battlefield 4 out there, DICE and publisher EA have been having some issues with the millions ps players engaging in the multiplay for the game. To varying degrees, this has been pretty much affecting all platforms and now that the game is out on the Xbox One, DICE wants to say ‘thanks’ for your patience.
Today 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 ofBattlefield 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 fromNovember 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 5we will give all players that log in to Battlefield 4multiplayer 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 Twitterand Facebook.
