Battlefield 4 Naval Strike release date set for March 18?
EA just released Second Assault, the latest Battlefield 4 DLC. And according to its Origin digital store, the next DLC, Naval Strike, will be out in less than a month. Earlier this month, DICE revealed the first Naval Strike details.
What appears to be a screenshot of the Danish Origin store, the Battlefield 4 Naval Strike release date is listed for March 18th — this is likely the date Premium members get the DLC. This would mean there would be about a month between the DLC packs, which would be unusual when it comes to the Battlefield franchise — usually there’s at least a couple of months between major expansions.
It would also be rather odd for EA to have the Battlefield 4 Naval Strike release date set right in the middle of the Titanfall launch frenzy.
The Battlefield 4 Naval Strike DLC includes the brand new Carrier Assault game mode, which is a re-imagining of the popular Titan mode from BF2142. Naval Assault also includes four new maps: Lost Islands, Nansha Strike, Wave Breaker, Operation Mortar.
In addition to the new game mode and maps, Naval Strike will also include a new vehicle, the amphibious hovercraft, 5 new weapons, and 2 new gadgets: the 3GL grenade launcher for the Assault class, and the Anti-helicopter mine for the Engineer class.
