Get your first peek of Battlefield 4’s third multiplayer expansion, Naval Strike.
Through Battlefield’s official blog, developer DICE is giving anxious fans their first look at the game’s ocean-themed Naval Strike DLC that’s set to introduce four new multiplayer maps, new weapons, new vehicles, new assignments, and the exciting new Carrier Assault game mode in late March.
“Water-based combat has always been a vital part of the all-out war of Battlefield 4, and with Battlefield 4 Naval Strike the fights at sea are more intense than ever,” reads the blog. “With the introduction of the amphibious hovercraft vehicle, your possibilities to dominate the sea will be even greater.”
More details on Carrier Assault are to come, according to the blog. Here’s what the blog had to say about Naval Strike’s four new maps:
“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.”
Check out the new official screens below!
It appears that the soldier in the screen below is holding one of Naval Strike’s five new weapons, which we believe looks strikingly similar to the Beretta ARX 160 Italian modular assault rifle (ignoring the fact that he is holding the weapon by the magazine and not the handle and that the weapon’s stock is clipping into his shoulder). What do you guys think?
