DICE Explains How Battlefield 4 Will Take Over Your Life

“With Battlefield 4, we are introducing our deepest online career ever,” said DICE in a recent blog post.

“We are also tweaking it to make it rewarding for newcomers and challenging for returning veterans.”
“While sharing similar basics with Battlefield 3, we are now offering a cleaner upgrade path, clearer Ribbon and Medal progression, and an increased focus on richly rewarding great team play.
“We know our fans can spend literally hundreds of hours on the Battlefield. With Battlefield 4, we want to make sure players have goals to aspire to at the end game, while at the same time rewarding players at earlier ranks as well. Ribbons are the quick fixes, whether you’re a veteran or a newcomer to the series.
“You typically can get one or more of these in a single round if you perform well. They can be awarded for anything from repairing vehicles, capturing flags, or reviving team mates. There are 45 unique Ribbons in the game, and you can earn each of them an infinite number of times.”
The developer then spoke of how there are so many ranks that your life will disappear trying to reach the last one.
“Perhaps the biggest bragging right in Battlefield 4 is the Rank you achieve, from 0 (Recruit) to 100 (Colonel). Rank is strictly a number that shows your dedication to the game, and each Rank has five sub-ranks denoted by Roman numerals – similar to the system used by the U.S. Marines. So at Rank 16 you’ll hit “Sergeant”, with Rank 20 being “Sergeant V” and Rank 21 bringing a new title (“Staff Sergeant”).”
You can find more information on things like Ribbons and other rewards on the official blog.
EA has previously confirmed that Battlefield 4 will be out on November 1 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, while the PS4 and Xbox One versions will drop as next-gen launch titles later on in the month.
