Battlefield 4 developers DICE have some surprises in store for anyone currently enjoying the military-inspired first-person shooter on either the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 or PC.
In a letter addressed to all Battlefield fans, DICE executive producer Karl Magnus Troedsson writes that while the team is more than proud to have launched Battlefield 4 across five different platforms, they are “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,” Troedsson continued. “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.”
In order to help smooth things over while the studio works tirelessly on updates, fixes, and patches, and to also show a measure of gratitude for your patience, DICE comes bearing gifts in the form of double XP and a unique weapon attachment.
“To show our appreciation for your patience as we work through these issues, we are announcing that from November 28 through December 5, we will reward all players with Double XP for every multiplayer match they complete,” Troedsson writes. “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 5 we will give all players that log in to Battlefield 4 multiplayer 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.”
So, are you stoked about some bonus XP and a new weapon attachment? Is it enough?
