Battlefield 4: Bring Your PS3 Stats to PS4

Vincent Vukovic's Avatar + Posted by Vincent Vukovic on Aug 14, 2013 // Community Manager, DICE

This holiday, DICE will unwrap the next generation of all-out warfare with Battlefield 4. That means best-in-class multiplayer is coming to PS4 with huge 64-player battles, running at a smooth 60 frames-per-second.

Even if you start playing on PS3, we want to make your transition to PS4 easy. That’s why we’re notifying the devoted Battlefield and PlayStation communities that all of the time and effort you spend building up your Battlefield 4 stats will carry over when you upgrade to PS4.

That way, on October 29th, you can get in the game without any worries that you’ll have to start ranking up all over again when PS4 launches. We got your back.

Battlefield 4 on PS3 and PS4

Today we also wanted to inform the community that DICE is promising to keep the action going all year long with the return of Premium membership for Battlefield 4. With membership, players can expect themed digital expansion packs, new weekly content, and personalization options. And just as your stats, unlocks, and rank will be transferable from PS3 to PS4, so too will Battlefield 4 Premium membership.

Tune into EA’s 2013 Gamescom press conference on August 20th at 10:00AM ET for the first look at Battlefield 4 Premium content. You’ll also get the scoop on an all-new Battlefield 4 multiplayer mode and map.

Let us know what you think of this news. Thanks for reading!

So does that mean we have to buy a new premium membership for battlefield 4 even if we already hae premium membership for BF3?

What kind of trolling is this? You expect me to buy it on PS3, then 2 or so months later buy it again for PS4 so I can play the game it was meant to be played? I’m surprised this gen can handle BF4 without be scaled down so much that it barely looks like a new game. This is an insult without some type of perk or extreme discount for the game if we buy it on PS3.

Here is good question for you then: will PS4 carry over to PS3 as well or just PS3 to PS4 only that way. I just hope all bug’s, glitch’s, and problems don’t show up on gameplay on PS4 at all like BF3 on PS3 like bad slow or won’t load co-op and ect.

Will PS3 players be able to play on the same Servers as PS4 users? Example If my friend is playing on PS3 and i am playing on PS4, can we still be in the same Squad?

This is awesome news! Thanks DICE for doing what you do best. I just wanted to ask, since I pre-ordered for PS3 and will have the Chine Rising DLC, will the downloadable content be transferred to the PS4 as well as everything else or will I have to pre-order for PS4 also. This has concerned me ever since I pre-ordered, so I wanted to make sure. Thanks.

I like BF, but BF3 was killed for me by the selling of gun packs. Will BF4 feature the same purchase options for guns earned in-game? If so, I can save myself the aggrivation and wasted purchase. I don’t think that my gaming should be stunted by the loads of people that get a boost by paying, and I don’t think I should have to pay more to keep up with the rest of the playerbase. Have you guys thought about how this hurts/helps in terms of customer satisfaction?

Are DICE suggesting us to buy BF4 twice??? Once for PS3 and again to PS4? No, no way!

Make it crossbuy for ps3 to 4 and I’ll care. Nice try.

The real question is, when you transfer if you rank up on one system will it automatically transfer over?

…haters
Many of my friends will not buy PS4 on the first months.
So, if they buy BF4 they will need to rank everything again ?
Calm down kids. Its only a service. You don’t need to buy twice, they aren’t stealing your credit card :P

My name is Brandon Parks. I am a legally blind cartoonist/gamer/illustrator and I LOVED Ps2..went to 360 with the current gen…but I am a HUGE METAL GEAR FAN…I’m talking one of the BIGGEST…even have duplicate copies to keep..ANYWAY- I just picked up a PS3 in Oct….with MGS4…BEST DECISION EVER!!! I have all consoles but I really like what I’m finding on PS3/4

I really enjoy and appreciate the work that goes into BF3 and now BF4. Looks lIke i’ll be getting premium of this too.

Hope to see most of you online. I only have a few friends on my list so more are always welcome.. I got Killzone 3 last month (played them in order and bought them in order. LOVED Killzone 1 so I HAD to pick these up..) Does anyone still play Killzone?

PS: Sorry for the long Message..(I was also wondering will PS4 cater to some disabilities…for example I wanted to be able to blow up text in chat messages..
