Due to recent server outages, the double XP event had been delayed until further notice. Luckily for us, as of last night, the wait is no more, as EA announced on its official Battlefield Facebook and Twitter that the Double XP event will start from 23 May.
Your chance to gain double XP will only remain open for 96 hours, as the event is due to eventually end on 27 May. With Battlefield 4 looming ever closer, this will be a great opportunity to get some good practice in before the new release later this year.
If you are going to join the event, feel free to head on down to the Battlefield 2XP Facebook Event to let them know that you are going to be involved. Here’s what they said:
We’re happy to announce the new dates for our upcoming double XP event in Battlefield 3! The new dates are May 23-27, with a total running time of 96 hours.
What: Double XP in Battlefield 3 Who: All Battlefield 3 players on all platforms Criteria: Ranked servers, all maps and modes Running time: 96 hours total
