Battlefield 4 News: First Look at the Maps From Second Assault DLC [VIDEO]
Good new BF 4 fans, we've got more news for the maps from the game's Second Assault DLC. It seems that EA held a small event to show off the returning maps, and a number of YouTube personalities captured some of the event footage, and have placed in on the net for all of us to see.
Read on and you'll find a video for each of the DLC's maps: Operation Metro, Caspian Border, Operation Firestorm, and Gulf of Oman. Check 'em all out below, starting with Operation Metro.
Gulf of Oman:
The videos come after details of the "newish" maps and their respective Levolution destruction features surfaced earlier this week.
The same source of one of the above videos, LevelCapGaming took to a Reddit thread to describe the maps, writing, "So I just spent a few hours playing the 4 new second assault maps, Metro, Oman, Caspian and Firestorm. Metro looks great, with new paths, fire that spreads through the grass outside and the ability to kill the lights. Oman looks very similar except the beach is now super rocky providing good cover and the sand storm is crazy! Caspian's new wall makes a big difference in the flow of vehicular combat. Firestorm is extremely fiery now. Lots of gas leaks that will kill people standing too close."
LevelCap described Caspian's Levolution event as a giant tower falls down to create "a bridge up to the D point area." Oman has a sandstorm that can bring a crane down, and severely limit player visibility. Operation Metro adds in new pathways and a working elevator system. As for Firestorm, "you can destroy the giant pipeline creating a fiery hazard. I didn't get to see it."
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 now for PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox 360, and PC. It will be available at launch for the Xbox One when the console releases worldwide later this week, November 22.
