EA Announces Battlefield 4 “Battlefest” for Fans, to Include Contests, Prizes and More

In time for Battlefield 4’s Dragon’s Teeth expansion next week, EA has announced the “Battlefest” for Battlefield 4. According to the publisher, Battlefest “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.”

First thing out of the gate is a Double XP event for all players this July 12-13. On the 12th, not only will you be able to rank up faster, but a new daily contest called “Battleshots” will also be unleashed, where players can take screenshots in BF4 based on different theme requirements. Each 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.” 

Here are the rest of the planned roll out of missions and in-game items for the event.

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.

Double XP

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.

Community Missions

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.  Official rules can be found here.

EA adds that Battlefest is just a “small token of our appreciation and commitment to Battlefield 4.  In addition to this, we have DICE teams in Stockholm and LA continually working on improving the gameplay experience.” 

Anyone looking forward to this or have you moved on to another game for your shooter needs?
