In honour of the long-serving Battlefield 4 fans DICE are throwing a Battlefest event this Summer will freebies and giveaways aplenty.
“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,” DICE wrote online. “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. The 12th also marks the beginning of a new competition called Battleshots, where players are given a theme and asked to submit a Battlefield 4 screenshot. Each day a lucky winner will be chosen to receive an AMD graphics card, a $50 gift card to the DICE Store, and a Battlefield 4 Premium membership on their desired platform. The contest will continue every day up until August 13th.
Also running during Battlefest will be:
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.
DICE also said, “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!”
