Leading up to the release of Battlefield 1, DICE launched a campaign that, over the course of a few months, made all of the Battlefield 4 DLC available for free, for a short period of time. Whilst each DLC pack was only made available for free for a week each, once a player downloaded the DLC, they kept the rights to have the for free DLC forever.
Now that the Battlefield 1 release is just around the corner, DICE has decided to extend their generosity and release all of the previous Battlefield 4 DLC again. This time though, things are a little different.
This week will see the entire DLC offering from Battlefield 4 available online for free, all at once. In the past DICE released each DLC pack over time, but this is the first opportunity players have had to download it all at once for free.
All of the Battlefield 4 DLC packs will stay in a player's library once they have claimed the free offer. The offer extends to all platforms that support Battlefield 4. If you're on the PC you will need to head to the Origin PC Store, if you're on a PlayStation console you will need to visit the PSN Store, and the Xbox users will be able to access the content from the Xbox Games Store, either online or from the Xbox Dashboard.
To make things more interesting, DICE has also released a number of community missions and has bundled them into the different DLC packs. In total there are now five free DLC packs on offer.
