New Naval Strike details + map overviews revealed
The upcoming Battlefield 4 expansion, Naval Strike, brings four brand new maps, each featuring a naval warfare setting. And DICE has just revealed a bunch of new details about the maps, about Levolution, and other features of Naval Strike.
As expected, each of the four new maps is based around water and islands, as shown below with the satellite overviews of the maps. The four maps are Operation Mortar, Wave Breaker, Nansha Strike, and Lost Islands.
As DICE explains in a new blog post, the focus of Naval Strike is to make a wide variation of maps that appeal to both infantry combat, naval and vehicle combat as well. As for Levolution, players will be able to close flood doors to stop naval vehicles from entering a large submarine base. Weather will also play an important part in Naval Strike, with different kinds of weather — for example, the Operation Mortar map will start at dawn, and then the sun will gradually rise and it will become day during the match.
