Battlefield developer DICE will be bringing a new in-game event, Battlefest, to the battlegrounds of Battlefield 4 that they describe as a "festival built for gamers."
"Battlefest is just a small token of our appreciation and commitment to Battlefield 4," write DICE. "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."
DICE will be launching the event this weekend, starting with a round of double-XP before moving onto a series of community missions. "Each week we will be hosting a global community challenge to reach a specific goal in-game," they explain on the official post
. The first is to collectively reach 15 million revives across all platforms, and, if successful, participants will be given a gold Battlepack the following week.
If that doesn't sound community-themed enough, the Battlefest will also introduce Battleshot (have you figured out the theme yet?) competitions. Players will be tasked with taking a Battlefield 4 screenshot showcasing the day's criteria, with the chance to win big. Prizes include an AMD graphics card, $50 gift card to the DICE Store and a Battlefield 4 Premium membership. There's also a month-long stunt video competition that promises "a massive prize", and free in-game camo unlocks for all players each week.
