February is Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month, “Netcode” Improvements and Platoons Incoming

Alongside a brand new patch expected within the coming days, Battlefield 4 developers DICE have some surprises in store for the Battlefield community this month.

“I’d like to announce the Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month,” writes DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson in a recent Battlefield Blog post. “Starting on Saturday, February 1, DICE is saying THANK YOU to all players by hosting a month filled with fun community missions and daily giveaways that you get just for jumping into a match.”

Next month, simply logging in each day will award all players with a new Bronze Battlepack while those logging in during Saturdays and Sundays will receive a Silver Battlepack. Gold Battlepacks can be achieved by participating in global DICE Community Missions where players will work together to complete Community-wide challenges.

In addition, DICE will also host a Double XP event for everyone while throwing in a few weapon shortcuts that unlock grenades and handguns from the base game. Premium members can look forward to exclusive weapon shortcuts for the Designated Marksman Rifle and Shotgun class.

Details on timing for Double XP and Community events are incoming.

Lastly, Troedsson also touched on a few important improvements coming to Battlefield 4 with more details to come.

“First, we are further improving a number of items commonly referred to as ‘netcode’. This will tighten the overall multiplayer experience, and we will be able to share these items with you in detail soon.”

Platoons will also be making a return, a fan-favorite feature in Battlefield 3. “In this added social layer, you can team up with your friends to create your own social space and accumulate stats together,” Troedsson says. “We’re also working on other feature additions that you’ve been asking for – stay tuned for more.”

Lots to look forward to next month! Be sure to keep your sights locked on MP1st for more details as they come.
