Battlefield 4 is being offered for free to Amazon Prime subscribers this beautiful month of June (the offer has just ended) and has seen a significant increase in players since E3. So much so that it saw significant spikes on Steam and some American gamers complained about the waiting time between games. For an 8 year old game that’s strong.
Electronic Arts a vu, Electronic Arts a ragi, Electronic Arts a crit :
We were absolutely overwhelmed by your enthusiasm and reaction to the recent reveal of Battlefield 2042. Many of you have since returned to Battlefield 4 for a taste of the return to all-out war. We watched your experience and found that waiting times were much longer in the western region of the United States than in other regions. Good news, we’ve increased server capacity for this region – you can expect less waiting and more games.
We will continue to monitor waiting times and make other adjustments if necessary.
A fun anecdote before the arrival of Battlefield 2042, a multiplayer episode that promises to have 128-player clashes with extreme random weather conditions in real time that will blow your mind. DICE’s futuristic FPS will be available on October 22nd for PS5, Xbox Series X | S, PC, PS4 and Xbox One will be available. A new preview is scheduled during EA Play Live on July 22nd.
