DICE has announced that it will be holding Battlefest in Battlefield 4 as a small token of its appreciation for the fans and to show commitment to the game.
“As we head into the thick of summer, we wanted to do something for our fans and are kicking off a special event called Battlefest,” the developer wrote. “This is a festival built for gamers, specifically Battlefield 4, 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. Not to mention, there will be tons of prizes, including graphics cards and three gaming PCs, provided by AMD.”
Battlefest will begin on July 12 with a double XP weekend for all players that will run until July 13. The 12th also marks the beginning of a new contest called Battleshots, which tasks players with submitting a Battlefield 4 screenshot based on a specific theme. Each day a chosen winner will receive an AMD graphics card, $50 gift card to the DICE Store, and a Battlefield 4 Premium membership on their platform of choice. The contest will run every day until August 13.
As well as this contest, there will also be the following:
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.
“And there it is, a month filled with fun activities and prizes to be given that we hope you’ll enjoy,” the developer added. “But that’s not all, we have more surprises in store that we’re excited to share in the next couple weeks. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled. Happy Summer Gaming!”
