  • Preorder Options

    So, I'm looking at the Digital Deluxe preorder... and the Gold Battlepacks are very nice... I'd like to have them... but then I see this vehicle shortcut bundle which, if I'm reading this right, unlocks all 73 upgrades for vehicles at once...

    That's... crap.

    The whole point to me playing this game for a long time is to unlock stuff slowly and grow better and better. I mean, I got you guys to play with, but I don't want to just be HANDED stuff for paying 10 bucks. I guess the battlepacks are kinda the same thing, but it's certainly not HANDING me ALL upgrades or add-ons for guns...

    Am I interpreting this correctly? And, does anyone know if you can just not unlock the stuff for vehicles if I purchase the deluxe? I'll just buy standard if not.

    Thanks.

    I'd wait till the GO speaks on terms of server set up... Who knows, maybe the Admin team decide to go unranked and have all the unlocks open.

      Ah. I didn't realize unranked was an option. Good call. :)

        The vehicle unlock part of the Deluxe version is for BF3. Missed it myself the first time I looked.

          I'm never preordering from Origin again. If you don't plan on playing BF3 again (and why would you with BF4 being better in every way imaginable), the BF3 shortcuts are worthless. That makes the Battlepack really the only thing going for Origin. Even then, I'd rather go with Amazon. Amazon offered a refund to everyone who preordered SimCity was disappointed with the game (a rarity for game purchases), and have the battlepack bonus as well. If you want to save a few bucks, GreenManGaming is selling BF4 preorders with $8 cash back or $10 GMG credit, which you can use towards getting Premium if you plan on getting it.

            The vehicle unlocks are for BF3, not BF4. Also, you get gold battlepacks every ten ranks or so, and you get battlepacks every time you would have gotten a new attachment but have already unlocked all of them. They're also only cosmetic items or early unlocks of existing items that you can unlock through play. If you think that's worthwhile, then you have your answer. You'd get deluxe for just the battlepacks (since the BF3 vehicle unlocks only, well, affect BF3). Not preordering means you don't get China Rising for free, which, if you're planning on getting premium, doesn't matter, but since I'm not, is fairly important to me.

            Also, you all know you can preorder the standard digital edition, right? Its a bit harder to find in Origin, but its there.
            I can ADS using more than a 2x without significant stutter! This was a good patch.

              I knew about the Standard. I didn't notice the Vehicle unlocks were for BF3, which is kinda crazy anyway, because at this point, if you played BF3 seriously at all, who doesn't have all the unlocks? Lol.

              So, yeah... standard it is.

              Thanks guys! :)
