We recently had the chance to have a quick chat with DICE General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson regarding Battlefield 4 and one of the few pertinent things we thought of asking is: will BF4 have any free maps or modes just like what they did with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ?
Sure, it might have just been a map reworked to fit a specific mode, but it gave the game more legs and it being free was certainly a big help for adoption rates, too.
So, can we expect the same thing for Battlefield 4, then? We’ll just have to “wait and see” according to DICE.
Pixel Enemy:EA has announced that BF3 Premium now has over 4 million members, and needless to say, has been a huge success for DICE. Does this put an end to “free” maps and modes like in Bad Company 2 or is DICE open to dishing out more free content?
KM Troedsson:Battlefield 3 Premium was a huge success, and we’re excited about what we are delivering with Battlefield 4 Premium. Through Battlefield 4 Premium we will be delivering free content on a weekly basis in the form of assignments, challenges and more. Whether or not this may occasionally include a new map or mode you’ll just have to wait and see.
Hopefully, DICE will throw a bone to non-Premium members so they can play on a new map/mode or two for free, no?
Stay tuned to our full interview set to be published soon.
