Battlefield 4's Naval Strike DLC Revealed [IMAGES]
With the lawsuit against parent company EA now a thing of the past, Battlefield 4 developer DICE is taking the time to celebrate a wee bit by offering up a few more details on the game's next piece of DLC. There's another Battlelog post out, and its offering the first visuals at Naval Strike, chock full of scores of new settings, vehicles, and more. Check 'em out below.
Seen above is the new hovercraft vehicle, which travels as swiftly over land, sea, mud, ice, and whatever else terra firma can throw at it. And below, you have a truly monolithic carrier ship, representing the previously announced return of Battlefield 2142's Titan Mode, re-christened as "Carrier Assault."
Lastly, you can see an attack helicoptor about to interrupt the scenic tranquility of one of the DLC's new maps, in this case, Lost Islands.
DICE had previously offered up scant details on Naval Strike in a Battlelog post last month.
As written in the post, "In this expansion, you'll experience intense water-based combat as the Chinese armada takes the fight to the sea. You'll have access to new weapons, gadgets, and amphibious vehicles, and four all-new maps - Lost Island, Nansha Strike, Wave Breaker, and Operation Mortar."
Battlefield.com's Expansion section had a bit more to offer:
"Battlefield 4 Naval Strike takes the intense and dramatic water-based combat introduced in Battlefield 4 to four all-new maps set in the South China Sea. Blow open a crashed passenger plane and capture fishing villages across the tropical Lost Islands. Drop a submarine on your foes as you infiltrate a naval base or rush between shipping docks and rocky islands on the massive Wave Breaker map. Wage war across stormy seas in the largest ocean stretch in a Battlefield map yet with Nansha Strike. Storm an abandoned cliff-side resort, or get lost in the breathtaking vistas in Operation Mortar.
* 4 all-new multiplayer maps set in the South China Sea: Lost Islands, Nansha Strike, Wave Breaker & Operation Mortar
* 5 weapons all-new to Battlefield 4
* Introducing the amphibious hovercraft vehicle
* 2 additional gadgets - 3GL (3 grenade launcher) attachment for the Assault class, and the Anti-Heli Mine; an aircraft disabling projectile for the Engineer class
* Carrier Assault game mode, which is a re-imagining of the classic Battlefield 2142 Titan Mode, and 10 new assignments with unlocks for each
After Naval Strike hits, there are two more DLC packs scheduled for a release this summer - Dragon's Teeth and Final Stand.
