Transfer to Next-gen consoles & Battlefield 4 Premium confirmed

NextGen

DICE has confirmed that Battlefield 4 players will be able to transfer their stats from Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 to Xbox One and Playstation 4, respectively.

That is why today we are informing the devoted Battlefield community that all the time and effort you spend building up your Battlefield 4 stats will carry over when you upgrade from the Xbox 360 to Xbox One and from the PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4.”

This seemed to be a point of interest for many fans, and it seems DICE was listening, and worked on it quickly, as they were talking about checking it out only weeks ago. But there is a caveat, these transfers are one-way, so you can’t hop back and forth.

Also, in the same post, they confirm that Premium membership will be returning for purchase, much like BF3, and it will also be able to transfer to next-gen.

Today we also wanted to inform the community that DICE is promising to keep the action going all year long with the return of Premium membership for Battlefield 4. With membership, players can expect themed digital expansion packs, new weekly content and personalization options. And just as your stats, unlocks and rank will be transferrable from current-gen to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so too will Battlefield 4 Premium membership.”

    Did the blog mention at all whether you can transfer from Xbox 360 to PS4, as I’m sure alot of people like myself will be doing? In theory it shouldn’t be too difficult as the stats will presumably be linked to the Origin account…

      I don’t know if it means that specifically, but if I had to guess I would think you cannot do it cross-platform. I would assume that this has to do with the way that the systems are set up, not how DICE or your stats has done it.

        Shame, I’m now undecided whether to fork out for two copies or to just wait for the PS4 to come out.

    So if you have premium on ps3 for bf3 you can get it over bf4 right?

    • Thomas Deisinger

      No, I believe it means that if you buy BF4 premium on PS3 or X360, you can then transfer it to PS4 or Xbox1. Owning BF3 Premium does not give you BF4 Premium

        Ow… ok :)
