DICE has announced that Battlefield 4 players can now purchase Battlepacks “as a shortcut to catch up with their friends on the Battlefield.”
Originally Battlepacks could only be earned by playing the game, but now a second, much quicker, method has been added. These packs contain a variety of in-game items such as accessories, emblem shapes, profile pictures, dog tags, XP boosts, and more.
“Starting today, we are introducing a new way to acquire Battlepacks, the bundles of content that provide a mix of in-game items including accessories, emblem shapes, profile pictures, dog tags, XP boosts, knives, and paints,” the developer said. “Battlepacks can still be earned through normal gameplay progressions, but we are now giving players the option to purchase Battlepacks as a shortcut to catch up with their friends on the Battlefield.”
Bronze, Silver, and Gold Battlepacks are available to purchase for for $1, $2, and $3, respectively, on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
