Battlefield 4 China Rising DLC launches on December 3rd
EA and DICE have announced the launch date for the very first Battlefield 4 DLC. China Rising will launch on December 3rd, just over a month after the game launches (which is officially today). However, the early access on December 3 is only for those with Premium membership, and those playing on the Xbox One console.
The China Rising expansion is available for free to everyone who pre-ordered the game — just like Back to Karkand was with BF3 back in 2011. It’s also available for free of you’re a Premium member. Otherwise, you’ll have to fork up $15.
The Battlefield 4 China Rising DLC includes 4 new maps set in China, in addition to featuring new weapons, vehicles, awards, unlocks, and more. The China Rising DLC previously went under the name “Drone Strike”, which was used in some early promotional material.
China Rising is the first of five Battlefield 4 expansion packs. The other four are expected to be released each quarter starting in Q1 2014. The DLCs are expected to retail at $15 per pop, unless you purchase a $50 Premium subscription, which gives free access to all DLC, plus many other goodies (such as Battlepacks, new dog tags, weapon camos, double XP events, and more).
