'Battlefield 4' DLC news: Game expansions free to download for a week


The three-year-old war-themed title from EA DICE that is “Battlefield 4” will be giving sweet deals to all their fans as it is said that all downloadable content (DLC) for the game will be given away for free to all major consoles.

Reports suggest that the game developer decided to dish out this treat to “Battlefield” fans as a way of celebrating the upcoming release of the highly anticipated installment in the game franchise which is, of course, “Battlefield 1.”

Moreover, it is said that the offer will be a week-long affair and as per Larry Hryb, director of programming for Microsoft’s Xbox who is also known online as Major Nelson, all of the previously released expansions of “Battlefield 4” will be made free for the given time period for Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox One S. Other consoles like Sony’s PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, and Windows PC will be having the said offer at a later date.

The expansions that are currently free to download includes “Naval Strike,” “Second Assault,” “China Rising,” “Dragon’s Teeth,” and the most recent one is “Final Stand.” The mentioned game segments normally cost $15 apiece but it was deemed free since the 13th of this month. It is also stated that the game expansions can be acquired even if the player is not under Xbox’s Games with Gold program. Another notable thing to mention about the said offer is that once the DLC has been downloaded, the game will be on the console even if the offer has already ended and as long as the gamer wants it.

Meanwhile, the game series’ forthcoming title, “Battlefield 1” has just released an open beta version and the final render of the game will be hitting the shelves this Oct. 21 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC gaming platforms.
