Battlefield 4 double xp week incoming as outage compensation


DICE are to give Battlefield 4 players a week of double XP and other goodies as compensation for the various outages since launch. From November 28th until December 5th, anyone who completes a multiplayer match will be rewarded with twice the bounty of XP. Additionally, players will also receive an exclusive M1911 pistol scope, which was previously a DICE developer-only attachment.

In a statement, DICE boss Karl Mangus Troedsson explained the details.

“Players will also receive a special weapon upgrade as an additional treat: “On December 5 we will give all players that log in to Battlefield 4 multiplayer a M1911 pistol scope,” said Troedsson. “This special sidearm scope, previously reserved for our DICE developers, has a 3X zoom and is available for all classes in Battlefield 4.”

Battlefield 4 has been a haven for game breaking bugs: crashes, server instability and loss of progress. Troedsson maintains that fixing these issues is DICE’s only priority.

“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.”

A full title update is due to be released on Monday, November 25th to address some of the most serious issues.
