Battlefest Is Back With Month-Long Battlefield Hardline And Battlefield 4 Events

Share this:

Updated with details on Battlefield 4 Battlefest and new Battlefield 4 Weapon and Game Mode DLC.

Battlefest is back, this time as a month-long celebration filled with special in-game events for Visceral Games’ Battlefield Hardline as well as DICE’s Battlefield 4.

The Hardline festivities kick off today with Double XP on all platforms and will conclude with special community mission taking place between May 4 to May 11. Meanwhile, Battlefield 4 will start things off with an Easter Battlepack and Shortcut Kit sale starting March 31 and ending with and Double XP event April 30 to May 4.

Interestingly, Battlefield’s Global Community Manager Vincent Vukovic confirmed in his Battlefest Battlelog update that new DLC weapons are on their way to Battlefield 4, arriving some time before the end of May in a new “Weapons Crate” along with the new Gun Master game mode. The Community Map Project is also still in the works.

As for what the new guns might be, we’re not 100% certain, but DICE Engineer Julien sure has been leaving a lot of hints on his twitter.

Finally, you can check out the full month-long Battlefest schedule for both games below, as outlined on Battlefield Hardline’s official website.
