Posted on July 28, 2013, Ian Miles Cheong DICE Looking into Next-Gen Stat Transfers for Battlefield 4
Battlefield 4 developer DICE says they are looking into the possibility of stat transfers from current- to next-gen platforms in the upcoming game. Such a possibility would allow for players to transfer their soldier stats from one version to the other without losing their progress in the transition, giving them reason to play the game on more than one platform.
“We’ve heard reports that players would like their stats and progression to transfer from current to next-gen in #BF4,” wrote DICE on Twitter. “We’re investigating.”
At the present, soldier stats are locked to the platform you play the game on in Battlefield 3, meaning that a soldier created on the PC, for example, cannot be loaded onto the Xbox 360 or PS3 despite the stats being stored on EA servers. In essence, this means players will have to slog through the multiplayer mode multiple times to earn their unlocks and progression levels.
The PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 Battlefield 4 release date is set for October 29 in the US. Next-gen versions will be out alongside next-gen consoles.
