Battlefield 4 has seen an avalanche of issues, some would say failures, since its rocky launch. Plagued with CE-34878-0 errors on the Playstation 4, numerous patches across all platforms, and a class action lawsuit, EA and DICE are in a struggle to make things right.
Their first attempt was a double XP event from November 28th to December 5 dubbed a “player appreciation” event in which DICE hoped that it would “get back the XP that you may have lost” due to the current issues with Battlefield 4. This news appeared to have backfired on EA/DICE since those that were already Premium members and were promised an exclusive Premium Double XP event that was slated to start on November 30. Adding to that frustration, DICE gave participating players a M1911 pistol scope which most of the BF community saw as a smack in the face.
Rumor has it that EA/DICE is gearing up for a free Battlefield 4 DLC as an apology to gamers. It is still unclear as to which DLC will be offered.
Plenty of people on Reddit are expressing their anger already, “What was the point of buying Premium? Why did I spend $50 on the 4 DLCs when one of them may be given away for free?!“.
