Battlefield 4 Naval Strike details revealed
With the announcement of the Second Assault release date yesterday, DICE also revealed some details about the upcoming, naval-based DLC. The Battlefield 4 Naval Strike expansion will launch in late-March for Premium owners, and early April for everyone else.
The first details of Naval Strike were revealed as well. The expansion will include four new maps, all of which are set in the South China Sea, and will be based around naval-combat (hence the name of the DLC). Here’s the full breakdown of the new Battlefield 4 maps:
In addition to the new maps, Naval Strike will also feature a new game mode. Called Carrier Assault, the new mode is a re-imagining of the popular Titan game mode from BF2142. In “Titan”, each team controlled a large ship, called a Titan. The opposing team had to first disable a Titan’s shield, before storming on-board to destroy the reactor core.
The Naval Strike expansion for Battlefield 4 will also introduce 5 new weapons, a new amphibious hovercraft vehicle, and 2 new gadgets: 3GL grenade launcher attachment for the Assault class, and the Anti-helicopter mine, which is an aircraft disabling mine for the Engineer class.
DICE has also released a new Naval Strike wallpaper, seen above. You can download a 1080p version here.
