BUY NOW, UPGRADE LATER

BUY BATTLEFIELD 4 ON CURRENT-GEN, UPGRADE LATER TO NEXT-GEN FOR AS LOW AS $9.99

We want to make it easy for BF4 fans to upgrade from the current generation of consoles to the next generation of entertainment. That’s why today we are clarifying the offers that will make the transition effortless, saving you time and money. Read on for the full details.

On October 29, we will launch Battlefield 4 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Experience the pinnacle of this generation of gaming with best-in-class multiplayer warfare, spectacular visuals and massive destruction. A few weeks later, we’ll bring the ultimate all-out-war experience to the next generation of consoles. Battlefield 4 will be available for PlayStation 4 starting November 12 in North America and November 29 in Europe, and Xbox One starting November 19 in North America and November 22 in Europe.

Don’t wait to get into the action. You can buy the game on current-gen and benefit from up to three weeks of play time – time that can be used to rank up, giving you a competitive advantage on the next-gen battlefield. We respect the time you will invest in playing and don’t want you to lose all of your effort when you upgrade to next-gen. That is why we are making it easy to carry forward your multiplayer stats and your Battlefield 4 Premium membership. No more worrying about starting all over again. Your rank, score, K/D ratio, wins, time played, service stars, dog tags taken, vehicles destroyed, repairs, revives, squad score, accuracy and more will all transfer to next-gen consoles at launch.

Below are the details of how you can buy now and upgrade easily later. If you have any questions, please leave us a comment.

    I want to purchase the 360 version, and then upgrade to the digital Xbox One version (NOT the disc) but I have not seen confirmation or details that this is possible. is there anything concrete that says I can do this? otherwise I may need to skip the 360 version and wait a month before I nab the Xbox one version online. Although I really dont want to miss out on the pre-order bonuses. Is there any info out there on a solution to my issue?

      I'm running into the same issue. I want to keep both copies like PS3/PS4 owners will when they have their PS3 disc and PS4 digital copy to keep. For XBox we have to trade up and discard our 360 copy for the new one. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, except I have several friends that will play on 360 and none on next gen, so I'd like to have both so I can play next gen for myself and on 360 with my friends. I'll have to buy 2 fricken copies of the same game. Play Station seems to have this, but as of now it looks like we are out of luck.

    Why is it in Australia there is a deal for PS3 to PS4 to upgrade digitally for a small price but there's nothing for Xbox360 to Xbox ONE. I would not of bought the 360 version if I knew we would be screwed over like this after being told by EB Games there was a deal, only to be told after I bought it there wasn't one now.

    It is a terrible shame on EA for not upgrading the Bf4 360 to Xbox One as others are doing .I preordered the 360 version assuming with all the HYPE on this site about The up grade programs that You the manufacturer would be with the others on the upgrade program. Shame on me for not reading the fine print! So now I have a 360 game with China rising map added ,and am stuck not being able to upgrade to XBOX ONE !!!! If I had realized I couldn`t up grade I wouldn`t have bought from EA..... I am really dissapointed to say the least . Come on all the rest of us who trusted EA get on and VOICE YOUR OPINIONS...
