Two videos below capturing gameplay footage from private servers showcase the new weapons and gadgets that are originally intended to launch with the expansion this December 3 for Battlefield 4 Premium members, two weeks later for non-Premium members.

Earlier, we also learned about possible map names for China Rising’s four new multiplayer maps, which you can check out here.
Presumably, a mishap in the recently outed update has unintentionally allowed users to gain access to these new weapons and gadgets. In order to patch things up, as well as to address an increase of reports of server crashes, developers DICE are rolling out Server Update R10 over the next few hours.
“We are seeing a lot of server crashes at the moment,” writes DICE in another Battlelog update. “These are being solved by rolling out a new server patch on PC (Server Update R10). It will take a few hours for this new server version to propagate, but it should be with most servers in a matter of a couple of hours. If you are getting error messages referring to the China Rising expansion pack when trying to join a multiplayer server, please try another server. This error will only appear if a server has not yet updated from server version R9 to R10.”
