Second Assault DLC adds Capture The Flag game mode
A few days ago we revealed that the upcoming China Rising DLC will bring back the Air Superiority game mode. Now we’ve got information on the second DLC in the lineup: Second Assault. According to new information, Second Assault will bring back the popular Capture The Flag game mode, which was introduced with the last BF3 DLC.
The Second Assault expansion will also add five new weapons, including the F2000 assault rifle, the MP7 submachine gun, L85 assault rifle, AS VAL carbine, and the RPK-74M machine gun. It’s likely that the expansion will also add some new ribbons and medals as well.
Second Assault’s main content are four maps remade from BF3. They include Gulf of Oman, Operation Metro, Operation Firestorm, and Caspian Border. All four maps have been redesigned to incorporate the new Levolution feature. For example, the Gulf of Oman map now features a sandstorm, while Caspian Border now features a large, collapsible communications tower in the center of the map.
As always, the DLC will cost $15, but if you’re a Premium member (a one-time $50 purchase), you get all DLC, including Second Assault, for free. On top of that, Premium members get a two week head start on new DLC.
