Battlefield 4 will offer up 100 ranks, will various assignments available for high-ranking players, and all sorts of other rewards for skill, dedication and the like. This means ribbons, medals, and the franchise’s “deepest online career ever.” The team at DICE is also tweaking it to make it rewarding for newcomers and challenging for returning veterans thanks to a cleaner upgrade path, clearer Ribbon and Medal progression, and the ability to earn 900 unique rewards. It’s rather detailed so hit up the link for a read.

Battlefield 4 will be available October 29 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The game will also be made available on PS4 November 12 in North America and in Europe on November 29. The Xbox One version will be release in North America on November 19 and in Europe on November 21.

    ~ Remember when online FPS games didn’t need ranks and unlocks to keep players hooked? When they felt like social team games instead of like singleplayer games with more sophisticated AI?

    A lot of gamers won’t even bother looking for clans anymore ~ because they’ll get their competitive “fix” from the virtual carrots being tangled in front of them

    What I like about this game versus all other Battlefield games, is that you won’t be able to unlock weapon classes you don’t use. It was really annoying to be able to unlock all the recon gadgets while playing only medic in BF2142, and it was really inconvenient to have a small selection of common weapons to use with all classes while you tried to unlock the good stuff in BC2 and BF3. No more! Thanks DICE, that was really what everybody was waiting for.

    Another thing I’m really excited about is the return of Colonel 100. Clearly, the road from Colonel to Colonel 100 was amazing. So much rewards, so much incentive, so very much interesting. And it was really something unique and difficult to attain.

    I also remember the ribbons and medals of BF2/2142. Those were lame. Who wants to do those things, like capturing 1000 flags, defending 400, getting 5000 teamwork score and play for 150 hours for little more than a sense of achievement? Rewards should be easy to obtain and give plenty of points. Kill seven dudes with a weapon, that’s a challenge.

    And of course, scoring. That’s the thing to emphasize. Playing shouldn’t be about fun, and Battlefield shouldn’t be about teamwork and team victory. No. What is really important is your own KDR and score. Get points for everything, because that’s what matters. Don’t do it for the team, do it for yourself.

    Really, I like what they are doing to this franchise I loved so much.

    Or not.
