Battlefield 4 is one of the upcoming cross-generation titles, which means it'll be available for both the current round of consoles as well as the next-gen systems. However, what if you got the game for the PS3 or Xbox 360, and then later picked up the PS4 and Xbox One (and the PS4 version of BF4)?
See, your accumulated play stats wouldn't carry over…or would they? According to a Tweet on the official Battlefield Twitter account, developer DICE is looking into the possibility of "cross-gen-ing" those stats, which is good news for the fans.
"We've heard reports that players would like their stats and progression to transfer from current to next-gen in #BF4. We're investigating."
That would make the transition a whole lot easier, wouldn't it? Of course, we'd assume most consumers would be smart. They wouldn't buy BF4 for the PS3 or 360 if they knew they'd be getting one of the new machines relatively soon, right? Still, EA has announced that their new sports games (specifically, Madden NFL 25 and FIFA 14 ) would have carry-over stats between the two generations. Might as well step up, DICE.
Battlefield 4 is set to release on the PS3, 360 and PC on October 29. It's likely that the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be launch titles for those systems, but no official date has been set.
