Battlefield 4 stats will carry over to next-gen

DICE confirms Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 player statistics will carry over to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the military shooter.

DICE today announced that Battlefield 4 player statistics will carry over from Xbox 360 to Xbox One and PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4.

"We got your back," DICE said in a statement.

The announcement comes on the same day that Activision revealed that Call of Duty: Ghosts player statistics, as well as downloadable content, will be transferable between console generations.

DICE also announced today that it will offer a Battlefield Premium subscription for Battlefield 4. With a membership, players will receive digital expansion packs, as well as weekly content and personalization options. The Battlefield 4 Premium subscription will also be transferable between console generations.

No price was specified for a Battlefield 4 Premium membership, though the Battlefield 3 Premium subscription is available for $50.

DICE owner Electronic Arts will give a first look at Battlefield 4 Premium content during the company's Gamescom briefing on August 20 beginning at 10 a.m. EDT. This presentation will also highlight Need for Speed Rivals, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, FIFA 14, EA Sports UFC, Command & Conquer, and The Sims 4.

Battlefield 4 launches for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 29. The Xbox One and PS4 versions do not have release dates yet.

Good news for console Battlefield brothers, but i'll stick to PC for this game. I loved the 64 players map on BF3.

Really looking forward to BF4 but I am not buying 2 of the same game, one on the 360 and again not that long after on the One. Not happening. I will get my fix of BF4 playing the BETA and then get the Xbox One version.

There were more "competitive" players for BF3 on Ps3 than PC.

It is stupid that the stats carry over to next gen considering this is a whole different game.  Yes some will argue it is the same as all BFs before in many ways but the bottom line is there will be new objectives and new maps and it will require the player playing a bit different and thus no way stats from previous gen should carry over.

That's very good info to know. My question is, will my premium be carried over from console to console if I buy it? I don't want to buy premium for the PS4 & the Xbox One, I only want to buy it once!

I'm just going to wait for the PS4 version anyway, don't get what's the rush. Pointless buying on one console then to the other ;p

Would you still have to buy two separate copies though? Cause that kinda seems like a plot to get you to buy copies for both consoles. Infinity Ward is doing the same thing.

Humble bundle started an EA thing today. I got battlefield 3 finally for 5 bucks, along with several other games I didn't have. I mean, I hate EA and origin, but I found that I"m willing to buy EA games on origin if it's about 5 AAA games for 5 bucks and none of the proceed's go to EA. Perhaps EA is turning around now that wankzilla has left the company. Now if they just fix origin(killing it springs to mind), and stay with better business practices and stop screwing up their games, I might consider becoming an EA fanboy again.

Good move on CoD and BF4's part. Many people will want the "Day One" feel of the games, being that they are usually the best times to play. Especially in Call of Duty. So they will want to buy it the day it comes out on the first consoles, then upgrade when they buy their next console.

EB Games in Canada is running a promotion where if you trade in BF4 or Ghosts for the 360/PS3 for a X1/PS4 version you get a 50$ trade credit. So it's only 10$ to upgrade, which is a decent enough deal. Beats the hell out of spending 120$ in my opinion.

If your BF4 premium service transfers over from current gen to next gen and from what people have been saying it seems like BF4 premium will come out within months of release.

wouldn't it make more sense to carry battlefield 3 stats over?? why would I get the same game for both gen consoles?

@Matthew Orlandini you should rephrase that 360 to ps3 the xbox community online is much more competitive

@RedLegZeff I know all consider EA and Origin is bad but i see no "REASON".

People just say Origin is bad , EA is bad. Thats all.

I want to know why people say these things. Maybe you can give me the answer ?

I really wanna know because im using Origin since beta and i cant find many differences with Steam.

@bizuit Thats why I deactivated my account years back. Most of it's garbage to begin with.

@Monsterkillah  I doubt that a lot of people will buy both current gen and next versions. But for those who do, this is a nice service.

@obsequies Why would stats from a completely different game carry over..?

RedLegZeff

@arqe @RedLegZeff Seriously? Origin freezes up my computer for 30 seconds every time I launch it. They hardly ever offer sales of any value. All they advertise are their games for the most part. The money goes to EA, who contine to ruin the good game franchises they have, and they're trying to add free to play charging to pay games.  Steam generally runs flawlessly(at least it has for me), they offer great steam sales. They show tons of games, including massive amounts of indie titles. The money goes to valve, who respect their fans and usually update their games for free. 

I've had to use origin for the few EA games I have, though I've slowed to almost a boycott in recent years. I've always found origin just horrible when compared with steam. With this humble bundle it's a sign things are turning around at EA. I used to love EA. I mean mass effect and dragon age origins are still some of the best games of this last generation. Their business actions, their habit of turning every games series into action games, they've just turned into one of the worst companies in the industry. Hopefully they are changing.

Waste of money IMO

Rather buy different games that not comin next gen like GTAV or Batman Arkham Origins

@kerrman @obsequies its not a completely different game. Gran turismo stats and cars would transfer over, its not difficult,  makes more sense and would be more useful than what they are doing but whatever. If they are going to continue to re release games like this maybe they should link them with account for stats.

@RedLegZeff @arqe What you mentioned are something common among these day's game companies. For instance, UBI turned R6 and GW into action games either, and they nevertheless brazenly claim GW as the gauging rod of tactical games. Reversely, it is some indie games or games made by relative smaller studios which often surprise me.

@Monsterkillah Why you thinking only yourself and say its bad thing ?

Most of the people will not be able to see the console itself before New Year if they didnt pre-ordered.

So buying game you like for 60$ to your current console and buying it again for next console after half a year later with their current stats.Its a good thing.
