Free Boost Until Operation 3

We know that, for many of you out there, the recent social measures being taken to help tackle COVID-19 mean you are probably self-isolating at home.

One of the things we love most about making (and playing) video games is that they are an escape from the world  whether you’re diving in alone or socializing with friends (or strangers!) in online lobbies. In times like this, more than ever, we love that video games can be there for anyone.

During this time, we’re giving everyone Free Boost until the launch of Operation 3 (which is still targeting March 31st at this time). Free Boost nets you 2XP for Multiplayer XP, Character XP and double the rate of Supply Drops!

St Patrick’s Event

Our St Patrick’s Event continues this week with 7 days more to grab the earnable Shamrock Weapon Skins and battle it out in Luck of the Draw.

As an added little bonus, jump online on  Tuesday, March 17th to pick up a free St Patrick’s themed Blood Spray and Banner to add to your collection!
