DICE introduces month-long 'Battlefest' for Battlefield 4
DICE announced today the impending start of Battlefest, a month-long Battlefield 4 festival filled with weekly rewards, contests and in-game content.
"It's a fun way to give back to our community and say thanks, while doing some cool things in the game," DICE said of the event. "Not to mention, there will be tons of prizes, including graphics cards and three gaming PCs, provided by AMD."
"Battlefest is just a small token of our appreciation and commitment to Battlefield 4," DICE continued. "In addition to this, we have DICE teams in Stockholm and LA continually working on improving the gameplay experience, adding new initiatives like the CTE environment, and also developing the next two expansions packs, with Battlefield 4 Dragon’s Teeth releasing next week for Battlefield 4 Premium members."
The Battlefest festivities will start on July 12 with a weekend of double XP from July 12-13. The 12th also marks the first day of the daily contest (called Battleshots). For this, DICE asks that you send a screenshot in Battlefield 4 based on a different theme requirement. Each daily winning entry will receive an AMD graphics card, $50 gift card to the DICE store, and a Battlefield 4 Premium membership on the platform of choice.
In addition to Battleshots, here are other planned events for Battlefest:
Free Camo Unlocks
"Each week we will be releasing a free camo in-game for all players. This will give you more ways to standout on the battlefield."
"As noted above, we’re kicking Battlefest off with a double XP weekend and we’re definitely going to end with one too for all players to reap the benefits."
"Each week we will be hosting a global community challenge to reach a specific goal in-game. If you reach the goal, everyone who logs in will receive a free gold Battlepack the following week. The first mission starts on July 15, 2014, where you will have to collectively reach 15 million revives across all platforms, with the mission ending on the eve of July 20, 2014."
Stunt Video Competition
"This a month long contest where we are asking you to send us your best stunt video that can only be done in Battlefield 4. Once we receive the submissions, the DICE team will pick the top 12 and then you, the fans, will vote on the top three winners to win a massive prize."
