Battlefield 4 News: Pictures of Maps from China Rising DLC Surface
While Xbox One gamers are having some problems getting a hold of Battlefield 4's first DLC, Second Assault, DICE still has to carry on with events as scheduled, meaning getting ready for the next DLC, China Rising. Pictures of the maps featured in the upcoming DLC popped up over on Reddit, courtesy of Redditor Andersso. They're all overhead, aerial style shots, so there's not a great amount of detail, but still interesting. Check 'em out below.
First up, we have the Guilin Peaks:
Next, the Altai Range:
Here's Silk Road:
And finally, Dragon Pass:
Premium members get the pack first December 1. The rest of us will have to wait until December 17.
Beyond the maps, the DLC offers 10 new assignments, just as Second Assault did, as well as the return of the Air Superiority mode, a sort of territory capture mode, just taken to the skies. One player wins once he or she has more planes in the air than the other. We last saw this mode in Battlefield 3's End Game DLC.
As always, new weapons will be added, and China Rising features five of its one: the MTAR-21 and MP7 submachine guns, RPK light machine gun, L96AI sniper rifle, and the L85A2 assault rifle.
Players also get to control the UCAV and SUAV drones. The UCAV works similarly to the TV Guided Missile, and is first launched like a mortar round before players can control it in the air. It fires airburst explosives from a range of about 400 meters. The SUAV is slower, and carries a laser designator to mark targets for guided weaponry. Or, you could just crash the damn thing into the target of your choice. Probably not as efficient, but far more surprising, especially since your enemies will be able to see that laser.
As far as vehicles go, dirt bikes return from Battlefield 3, and there's also a new vehicle. This being China Rising and all, that new vehicle is a Chinese bomber, the Xian H-6 airplane.
