Battlefield 4 News: Second Assault DLC Live Exclusively on Xbox One, Gets a TV Spot [VIDEO]
Battlefield 4's Second Assault DLC is live exclusively (albeit temporarily) on Xbox One, and to make sure you know damn well about it, DICE and EA have launched a TV commercial that you can expect to see while you try to watch the Packers and the Lions.
Second Assault is the first DLC to arrive for Battlefield 4, with at least three more expected. It sees the return of the Capture the Flag mode, and offers four redesigned Battlefield 3 maps: Caspian Border, Gulf of Oman, Operation Firestorm, and Operation Metro. You can get a closer look at the maps here, where each is thoroughly dissected in its own respective video.
Each map has its own Levolution event, which were described by Youtuber LevelCapGaming. Caspian Border has a giant tower that falls down, creating a bridge to previously inaccessible areas; Oman has a sandstorm that both severely limits player visibility and brings down a crane; Operation Metro features a working elevator system; and Firestom's giant pipeline can be destroyed, resulting in a giant fire hazard.
Joining the DLC's maps are 10 new assignments, and some returning Battlefield guns - the F2000 bullpup and AS Val Soviet assault rifles, M60E4 machine gun, GOL sniper rifle, and the DAO-12 revolver-style shotgun. Gamers can also ride around on the new Desert Patrol and Skid Loader vehicles.
Check out the TV spot below.
So if you have the Xbox One, yippee for you. Everyone else will have to wait until December 3 to try this out. When you do, here's the DLC's trophies / achievements you should be going for, courtesy of Exophase. Check out the full list below:
Blind Bomber - In a round get 5 kills with air vehicles in Gulf of Oman
Dirty Job - Find the hidden tunnel in Caspian Border
Falling Down - Kill an enemy with a ceiling collapse in Operation Metro
Risky Business - Kill an enemy flag holder while carrying your team's flag in CTF
Torched - Ignite a brush fire using the repair tool in Operation Metro or Caspian Border
The game's next DLC, China Rising, is expected shortly after Second Assault arrives on the remaining platforms this December. Names of the DLC's maps recently leaked: Taklamakan, Altai Range, Guilin Peaks, and Dragon Pass.
Battlefield 4 stars a new protagonist to the series, that of Sergeant Daniel Recker, a member of the elite Tombstone Squad. He and the squad learn that an Admiral is in the midst of planning a coup to overthrow the current Chinese regime, with Russia ready to back him up.
You don't have to be an expert in foreign relations and politics to realize this would cause one hell of a domino effect that would see the whole planet embroiled in war.
Battlefield 4 is currently available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360, and the Xbox One. It recently received a patch to fix a headshot glitch, and another meant to improve stability and reduce game crashes on the PS4 version. A Double XP event starts for the game on all platforms, and goes until December 5.
