EA rumored to offer free DLC as compensation for BF4 issues

Last Updated: December 22, 2013


If you play Battlefield 4, or have been keeping up with recent news, then you’ll know that until recently it’s pretty much been an absolute shambles on both the Xbox One and Playstation 4, as well as the PC.

While the problems appear to be fixed now (several patches later…), the only compensation that affected gamers have received is a week long period of double XP rewards as well as a pistol scope. There was also reports of Microsoft allowing people to return the Xbox One version of the game for a refund, but we were unable to confirm those directly ourselves.

Both Electronic Arts and DICE have been facing some pretty heated gamer wrath over the last few weeks and EA is even being sued over the matter (something to do with it being a publicly traded company and apparently making false financial representations based on Battlefield 4 sales). There are at least two lawsuits that we’re aware of.

The latest twist in this ongoing saga is a rumor that EA is about to offer some free downloadable content (DLC) as a kind of apology to gamers. In terms of what DLC is could be, there is the China Rising DLC – but everyone who pre-ordered the game will have access to that anyway. Then there is the Second Assault DLC – it could very well be that, or otherwise EA might even let you select which DLC you wish to receive free.

While this is strictly a rumor only at this stage, given the limited compensation that EA has given to gamers in relation to the problems so far, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a further peace offering announced at some stage soon. Stay tuned to Cheats.co and we’ll bring you any updates as soon as they’re announced!
