Double XP will kick in for all platforms November 28-December 5; players will also receive DICE-exclusive pistol scope.

The Battlefield 4 worldwide rollout was not without technical difficulties, so players may be happy to learn DICE is attempting to make good on those issues by offering double XP. From November 28-December 5, players across all platforms will earn double XP in every multiplayer match they complete, DICE announced today.

"We understand that the launch issues may have impacted your progression, and we want to do everything we can to help you get back the XP that you may have lost," DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson said.

In addition, when the double XP week ends on December 5, DICE will give all players who have logged into the game a M1911 pistol scope. This special sidearm scope was previously reserved for DICE developers only. It has 3X zoom and is available for all classes in Battlefield 4.

"You are the heart and soul of Battlefield," Magnus Troedsson said. "We thank you for your support in these early days of the launch, and will continue to show our appreciation as time goes on."

shot a guy with a tank, direct hit! i saw the shell explode on him, there was no hitmarker! so he jumped on me with C4 and suicide bombed me... and the game crashed.... now i play with a very crappy microsoft mouse because i threw my G-500 so hard on the wall it exploded to pieces.

thank you EA for making me destroy things in a fit of rage, i thought those days are behind me, but i guess only you can one up my Prozac!

Give us the Premium members a nice incentive. All I have to say is, all hell will break loose on November 28th.

Thumbs up DICE. Thanks for not forgetting about us. Not only do they update their games constantly, but they provide an outstanding online experience. The crashing was getting on my nerves but I never abandoned the game because it's such a quality product

Double xp just makes the game in some ways get over quicker and as for an exclusive pistol scope uh ... yeah ... uhmmmm an item that will not be very exclusive.

This is all so stupid. How about Dice/EA give coupons to save money on other games or just credit on Origin? I think that is better and more meaningful.

<< LINK REMOVED >> You wont rank up fast with double XP. It takes a lot to rank up especially if you turn on boosters. You might unlock a lot of stuff but ranking up is something else.

Guess I'll have to skip the single player initially and play MP first just for the double XP. They better not fuk up the Star Wars Battlefront game like they have done with this one.

Bought it this week on pc. Played 2 hours single player and 1 hour multiplayer, No issues so far but the game is not very good, i play on ultra settings but arma 3 looks way better then this, much much better campaign also. Will give it another try sometime but right now regretting my purchase. Supported Dice since 1942 but this is prolly last time i buy Battlefield.

As a heads up, I found BF to be significantly better today on PS4. Conquest is up and running, as is Commander mode. Still got a few crashes, but no corrupted saves. Plenty of crap left to sort out, but I believe after the patch they promised in a few days, Battlefield should be getting to top form.

To those of us with limited spare time: double xp is more of a slap to the face than an apology.

I'd much rather a finished product when I purchase it - but I guess that is getting increasingly difficult to ask for.

That is how you treat your customers....Well kinda. Ok, not really. Instead treat your customers to a superior experience from the get-go.

But at least they acknowledge that the game has had its share of issues. But it is sad that I am even saying that. But good start Dice, good start.

I think a better bit of compensation would be Free China Rising! Amirite?

@LS-Chaos

Forgot about that.

Like a total schmuck, I didn't preorder. Oh well, I am saving for Premium so i will get it then.

I made a mistake with BF3. I never bought Premium and then wound up buying almost every single DLC anyway, paying much more than I should have if I wasn't an idiot.

I am not making that mistake again.

@danjammer69 Well. I hope that EA CAN FINALLY OPEN THEIR EYES. Rushing a good studio to create a game that is broken. What a pity...

But... TBH, I'm planning to get premium too, but after they fix their bugs

Really man? Damn that sucks. Sorry to hear that. I know just how frustrting that is, as I had the same issue with BF3.

I guess I have been lucky with BF4. It has been hands down a much better experience than BF3 ever was. That goes for technical the and gameplay side of things.

Game is fun, but it still needs some work, those intermittent lag spikes every half minute or so have got to go.

a (what was a dev exclusive) attachment for my favorite sidearm? yes please :)

I just hope the patch hits PC before the event and fixes most of the crashing, otherwise the double xp wont matter much if I cant finish 4/5 games.

I suppose that's nice of them. I literally didn't play the game on my PC for the first two weeks because it was so unstable that it was simply a waste of my time. I got no enjoyment or progression out of it whatsoever, so just left it in the hopes that patches (client and server side) would eventually improve things.

STILL regularly drop out of matches for no apparent reason every now and then, but at least I can actually play the game now....

Sounds good, double XP at launch was useless.
