DLC Announcements Means Battlefield 4 is Officially Fixed!
“First, we want to thank the fans out there that are playing and supporting us with Battlefield 4. We know we still have a ways to go with fixing the game – it is absolutely our #1 priority. The team at DICE is working non-stop to update the game. Since Battlefield 4 China Rising expansion pack was already in the final stages of development by the time issues began with Battlefield 4, we decided to fulfill our promise to deliver it this week, but we’re not moving onto future projects or expansions until we sort out all the issues with Battlefield 4. We know many of our players are frustrated, and we feel your pain. We will not stop until this is right.” -Electronic Arts’ official statement 12/04/13
What a difference a couple of months make! Rejoice BF4 fans! According to EA, all is well in the BF4 universe. New content announcements are springing forth like a geyser! Last week was the announcement that the end of March will see the third expansion, Naval Strike, releasing to Battlefield 4 Premium members. Non-premium members will be able to purchase the content two weeks later. Naval Strike will include 4 maps, 5 new weapons, two new gadgets, an amphibious vehicle and a new game mode called Carrier Assault. More details will be made available about the game mode and maps closer to the release.
Additionally, the timed Xbox One exclusivity for BF4’s second expansion, Second Assault, has ended and is now available for premium members on all consoles and PCs. Second Assault is a re-imagining of some of Battlefield 3’s favorite maps; Gulf of Oman, Caspian Border, Operation Firestorm and Operation Metro. Also making the jump is the Capture the Flag game mode along with 5 reimagined weapons and the dune buggy!
If you were a BF3 player and have yet to experience Second Assault, you’re definitely in for a visual treat. The map layouts are identical to what you remember but there are lots of little touches, along with some new pathways, that really make playing these maps a new experience. Are you playing Second Assault already? Having fun? Can’t wait for Naval Assault? Do you think BF4 is REALLY fixed? Let us know in the comments below.
