Five Days of Double XP in Battlefield 3 Has Begun

By litepink,
With the release of Battlefield 4 just days away, DICE is celebrating the fact with a 120-hour long double XP marathon in Battlefield 3, which is underway as we speak. The duration of this event will bring us to Monday, just a day before the North American release of Battlefield 4 on Xbox 360.

The double XP event provides an excellent opportunity to rank up and make some progress or perhaps earn an achievement.

You can pick any map or mode, so long as you’re in Ranked matches. This event will last until approximately 4:30 P.M. GMT on Monday, so do what you need to do in order to make this a long weekend filled with Battlefield 3 warfare. It may become necessary to create a dummy version of yourself ala Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and sneak off for some extended play sessions in the coming days.

Battlefield 4 releases for Xbox 360 on October 29th in North America followed by November 1st in Europe. It then launches with the Xbox One on November 22nd.
