Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 receive another supply drop of giveaway DLC

Ever since EA announced that season passes were on the way out, they've been showering the (still very active) Battlefield 1 & Battlefield 4 communities with giveaways of premium-priced DLC, for those who haven't taken the plunge yet. Accompanying Battlefield 1's Summer Update (mostly balance tweaks and quality-of-life improvements, according to the patch notes) comes a triple giveaway. BF1 players can pick up the game's…

Battlefield 1 & 4 get another wave of free DLC giveaways

EA are retiring season passes for the Battlefield series starting with Battlefield V, and it seems that they're gradually making that change retroactive, at least in part. Today, owners of Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 4 who only have the base games can pick up the Turning Tides and Second Assault expansions respectively for the always-reasonable price of free, although you'll need to grab them via…

Battlefield 1 & 4 serve up free Russian winter DLC today

Battlefield V is practically upon us already, but its two immediate predecessors are still very well populated games. Still, thanks to their old focus on season passes, many players just stuck with the base games, a problem which EA have been rectifying lately with giveaways. Today, owners of Battlefield 1 can snag the In The Name Of The Tsar expansion for the game, while Battlefield…

Players Tackle Battlefield 1 Morse Code Mystery

Some soldiers of Battlefield 1 [official site] have stopped chucking grenades and sniping each other from across the map long enough to discover some pairs of mysterious headphones scattered around, which can be picked up by a single person during the fight. They then found that a jumbled morse code message would play if that person stood close to a radio station hidden somewhere on…

Battlefield 1 Announced, Set In World War One

Battlefield 1 [official site] will be this year's new game in EA's FPS series, set in World War One, earlier than ever before. I suppose this means that all the hilarious jokes people have made about "not playing Battlefield 2142 until they've played the previous 2141 games" were actually eerie predictions. All Battlefield games until this have been part of an incredibly ambitious plan to…

Battleface: New Battlefield Game Teaser-Trailed

At 9PM BTS/4PM ET, we'll find out whether the new Battlefield game is Battlefield 5, Battlefield: More Uncomfortable Police Brutality Allusions, or something else entirely. I'm wondering if it could be something a little science-fictional, in order to go toe-to-toe with what COD is up to. Also, wild speculation funtimes: the seconds-long teaser trailer below suggests that its Big Face Man is looking up at…

Battlefield 4 And Battlefield Hardline Giving DLC For Free

Electronic Arts plan to announce this year's new Battlefield game on Friday, but before then are shaking hands with Battlefield players, kissing their babies, and blasting free DLC at them out of air cannons. The old Battlefield 4 multiplayer Dragon's Tooth DLC and cops & robbers spin-off Battlefield Hardline's multiplayer Robbery DLC are both free to keep forever if you grab 'em by next Tuesday,…

If you like a lot of big-budget on your biscuit, join this club. Enormo-publisher EA just announced that its previously console-only Access service is now available on PC, as a bolt-on for its Origin game store.

Battlefield 4 ‘Dragon Valley’ Remake Coming Free Soon

The temple, meandering river, and destructible bridges of Battlefield 2's Dragon Valley are returning in Battlefield 4 [official site] for free later this year, all gussied-up and reworked for BF4. The map's no secret - it hit the Community Test Environment months ago - but DICE have now announced it'll arrive as part of the free 'Legacy Operations' DLC alongside the game's holiday season update.…

To Your Left A Bit: Battlefield 4’s Community Map Today

What sort of level would you most like to see in a video game? DICE asked the whole Battlefield 4 [official site] community, and design by committee has produced a spooky jungle map where monkey virus research has gone wrong. That... sounds about what I'd expect. Hardline may be the shiniest Battlefield around, but 2013's BF4 is still kicking. For folks more into army men…

Battlefield 4 Spring Patch Will Add Guns, Guns, Guns

It’s no surprise to see DICE continue to support Battlefield 4[official site]. If you compare its stats with those of the more recently released Battlefield Hardline, it’s clear BF4 is the PC owner’s Battlefield of choice. With the upgrades made in the upcoming Spring Patch, releasing “late May”, those players will probably be sticking around a while longer.  With rebalanced weapons across the board, this…

Invade China in Battlefield 4: Dragon’s Teeth

Prepare for extreme explosiabangs! It's the fourth (of five) Battlefield 4 map packs, Dragon's Teeth. Continuing the narrative of a China-America conflict, the fighting has now reached the south of mainland Asia, putting the focus squarely on infantry combat in urban environments. Furthering the series mainstay of having everything best about C&C Generals present, there's a map where trains will destroy tanks that have been…

Despite Hardline, EA Says Battlefield Not Being Annualized

Upon hearing EA claim that Battlefield will not succumb to annual sequelitis like Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, and their ilk, I was immediately reminded of that time it snapped up the domains for Battlefields 13-20. I'm not saying it's indicative of anything, just that I can't help but think of it, given the context. But yes, despite the fact that we're now on our…

Lagolution: Battlefield 4 Patches Netcode

"Lag!" you cry as the bullet zooops down your scope and through your virtual face. "Laaaaaag!" You're awful and everyone wants you to be quiet, but last week you might have elicited a modicum of sympathy in Battlefield 4 by grumbling about netcode, or at least recognition. Now you'll get only contempt. Maybe. Assuming a new fix actually works. Developers DICE yesterday rolled out a…

Blood Money: Battlefield 4 Adds Microtransactions

Somewhere beneath all of Battlefield 4's glitches, server woes, and ceaseless controversy lies a very good game. Even back when it first launched, I jumped into a few matches that went off without a hitch, and I thought to myself, "Wow, there is a preposterous amount going on here and also I just murdered a man with a defibrillator." But it's like a "levolutionary" building…

War(ts) And All: Battlefield 4 Servers Get Anti-Lag Uprade

Battlefield 4 is kind of like Humpty Dumpty. It launched, pretty much immediately face-planted off its precarious perch, and all the king's horses and all the king's men still haven't managed to fully put poor ol' Humpty back together again. There's a good game in there somewhere, but lag and a smattering of related (and unrelated) issues threaten to drown it beneath the Megalodon-infested seas. So…

You’re Going To Need A Bigger Aircraft Carrier, Battlefield 4

Many a cold night they spent together on the hunt for the beast, scanning the seas from watchtowers, wading in the surf, riding the waves, and diving down to the dark ocean's wrecks. Days turned to weeks, and weeks to months. They'd never seen it, but they know it was there. Each secret uncovered brought them closer to the beast. They felt it in their…
