DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson announced a special “Battlefield Appreciation” event for Battlefield 4 will be hosted November 28 through December 5. During that time, players will receive Double XP for every multiplayer match they complete. The event is in response to the turbulence players have experienced 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 end the event, players that log in to the game on December 5 will receive a M1911 pistol scope. This special sidearm scope, previously reserved for DICE developers, has a 3X zoom and is available for all classes in Battlefield 4.
