Share your passion for Battlefield
We recently turned on the ability for you to enable Facebook Sharing about your progress in Battlefield 4 multiplayer.
You can enable this feature in the menu under your profile picture (see image). Facebook Sharing lets you brag about earned ranks, ribbons, and medals. It also lets your friends know when you join a new game, win a round, or get awarded Top Player Awards. These stories will by default be published in your Facebook Activity Feed, encouraging your friends to join your game and outcompete you.
Through your shared stories, your friends will be able to see what server you’re playing on, join your game (if you’re still playing), access the Battlefield 4 Beta, or analyze your performance post-game through the Battle Report.
That’s it! Let your friends know about Battlefield 4 by enabling Facebook Sharing — you can always turn it off if you change your mind.
This is our first iteration of Facebook Sharing from Battlefield, and like always we appreciate your feedback. What kind of stories from Battlefield 4 would you like to see on Facebook? Let us know in the comments section below.

Welcome to the Open Battlefield 4 Beta!
First of all: thank you for joining the Open Battlefield 4 Beta! By participating, you are helping us to get Battlefield 4 ready for launch.
The Beta is the first opportunity that we at DICE get to test how well our infrastructure holds up in a scenario where millions of players join to play the game. We have a very complex system of services and hardware, that all need to work together.
This includes our back-end, game servers, Battlelog, game client, Origin – and the list goes on. Here at the DICE office in Stockholm, we’ve set up a “war room” where you’ll find people from different teams that are monitoring and taking care of issues as they arise. As we continue working on ironing out some of these, we expect to have a few hiccups along the way. However, rest assured that we are committed to making sure that you have a great experience playing the Battlefield 4 Beta.
The second part of the Beta is the game client itself. To get a taste of what you can expect from playing the Battlefield 4 Beta, watch this video:
Now, let’s be bluntly honest. You will experience bugs. This is a Beta, and not the final game. But, this is also where you come in. We ask you, and your friends, to help us find and report bugs on the Battlefield 4 Beta Battlelog forums: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/forum/view/2955064762159285271/. The forums are monitored, and we’re making sure to handle your findings.
Some of you may wonder if we’ll have time to fix some of the issues that you’ve reported before launch. The short answer is: yes. The version of the game that you are playing is several weeks old, and many of the problems that you may have encountered are already fixed for the final game, while others are being worked on.
Currently, players may experience game breaking bugs, meaning you might have a hard time playing. Here are some of the worst offenders, and we are working on fixing them as soon as possible:
Stuck on loading screen
We have identified and fixed two issues that we think should resolve this problem that affects mainly PC players. More info to come shortly.
Low frame rate/stuttering
We believe we are close to fixing this too. We will release more info as we know more. Meanwhile, please make sure that you have the Beta drivers for your graphics card. Also, please try changing servers to see if your performance increases.
Once again, thank you! And please do not hesitate to contact us on the forums.
Aleksander Grøndal and the Battlefield 4 team
