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. 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 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, adding new initiatives like the CTE environment, and also developing the next two expansions packs, with Battlefield 4 Dragon’s Teeth releasing next week for Battlefield 4 Premium members.

To get Battlefest started, we’re giving everyone a weekend of double XP from July 12-13, so if you need to level up your game, now is a good time to start or get back into the game. The 12th also marks the first day of our daily contest (called Battleshots), where we’re asking you to send us a screenshot in Battlefield 4 based on a different theme requirement. Each daily winning entry will receive an AMD graphics card, $50 gift card to the DICE Store, and a Battlefield 4 Premium membership on their platform of choice. We’re excited to see what you send in and will be altering the screenshot theme request daily until August 13 for more chances to win. Official announcement to come; official rules can be found here.

Beyond the daily Battleshots contest, check out these other initiatives we’ll be doing during Battlefest.

- Free Camo UnlocksEach 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 XPAs 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 MissionsEach 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 CompetitionThis 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 announcement to come; official rules can be found here.

And there it is, a month filled with fun activities and prizes to be given that we hope you’ll enjoy. 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!

I am assuming the 1.5GB patc h update I downloaded last night was just to change the spalsh screen in the menu. Or has there been more CTE updates?

There have been more updates, possibly from CTE. I haven't seen patch notes yet, but I'll look for them now.

There's a lot of minor fixes

But the new splash screen is nice

The server browser seems really screwy now! Gone are all my favs bar 1, the filter zips across the screen literally making you feel sick! You can't select all the player number options as you could before!

Annoyingly Double XP has not started yet. They are looking into it apparently. Arses, as I have nothing better to do this afternoon. They've ruined my entire weekend.
