Battlefield 4 'Second Assault' DLC Maps Confirmed

Battlefield 4 was released for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC on October 29th, yet it already has the first of its five DLC packs confirmed. The ‘Second Assault‘ expansion pack will offer “fan-favorite” maps from Battlefield 3 that have been redesigned using Frostbite 3. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I would have rather had Kharg Island than Operation Firestorm, but oh well. Still a good line up.

Does anyone know how much Battlefield 4 Premium will cost for the X1/ps4? Id really like to get premium for BF4. I didn't get it for BF3, but Im going to get it for BF4.

$50 same across all systems
Rob Hornecker  +   479d ago
And as with BF3,it will be worth EVERY penny!

@ Gozer

i agree,Operation Firestorm is a poor map,Kharg Island is much much better,glad Gulf of Oman is included,my fave BF3 map. i too am going premium for BF4 since i had not done that either with BF3
Gamesgbkiller  +   480d ago

Kharg is one of the best maps in BF3.

Firestorm was just for camping snipers.. I guess that's why it is popular :(
deathstriker  +   480d ago
I can't talk about the PC version, but on console Firestorm was boring and so is Metro.... Locker is a much better infantry map in BF4. Would've love Kharg to be included and one of the Armored Kill maps.
FunkMacNasty  +   479d ago
Yea, Nobody in my clan played Metro seriosuly. It was only used for quickly levelling up guns and equipment and boosting stats, since the middle of the map was nothing but a killbox
FunkMacNasty  +   480d ago
Gozer, as I understand it Premium is a one-time fee of $50, and if you buy premium now for current gen consoles, the premium account is transferrable to next gen systems which you buy BF4 on.. at least that's how I read the terms and conditions in the Playstation Store.

I also think Kharg would've been a better choice than Op Firestorm, but at least we still get Caspian Border and Gulf of Oman!
Kleptic  +   480d ago
There has been no information so far to show that premium for ps4/xbox one will be any different than it is for PC/current gen...so, i'm guessing, it'll be the same $50 as the rest...

whats strange though...is the timing off all this stuff...the xbox one gets it day 1, which is what, a week before premium members get the 'china rising' thing...so does that make these maps get pushed into next year?...f'ing retarded if so...since we all know the maps are ready...like...now...

Rush on Kharg Island was pretty badass. A little disapointed that Firestorm was picked instead of Kharg.
3-4-5  +   479d ago
Kharg was the best BF3 map, and Operation fire storm, at least on xbox 360 was the least fun map in the entire game.

I'm more concerned with BF4 maps and new maps. Can't wait for next gen.
xxxsiegezzz  +   479d ago
Operation firestorm was probably chosen because you can easily add an levolution effect to it.
Maybe dice can turn it to a great map.
Idba  +   480d ago
How the hell did this get approved? This was confirmed months ago!
Gamesgbkiller  +   480d ago
It was Not really confirmed by EA.

But it was obvious from the teaser before.
Idba  +   480d ago
It was confirmed by DICE themselves

LOOOL The game has just come out and EA are already banking on DLCs

I am really glad that I left gaming for good
xc7x  +   480d ago

BigShotSmoov007  +   480d ago
If you left gaming for good, then what are you doing in here? The name of the website is Newfor"GAMERS" you know.
AO1JMM  +   480d ago
Yet you are posting on a gaming news site? FAILED
MegaRay  +   480d ago
Dont be unprotected. Protect yourself from hates!!!
ginsunuva  +   479d ago
They're banking on dlc's from the previous game which came out 2 years ago.
Even worse.
PlayStation_4  +   480d ago
Hmmm... PlayStation got BF3 DLC 2 weeks early, hopefully it's around the same for X1.

2 weeks is nothing, and even if it is a month I can still wait, easily. It's only a piece of DLC, not like we're getting a full game later than everyone else.
Kleptic  +   480d ago
PS3 got 1 week early access to premium content...not 2...premium also got you an additional week...so it was confusing...

all dlc went...released on PS3 for premium members...one week later released on PC/360 for premium members...1 week later released for standard PS3 members...1 week later released for standard PC/360 members...so a PS3 premium member got access a full 3 weeks before standard PC/360 members...but only 1 week before other premium members...

MS does not seem to have done the same thing for BF4...the only dlc the xbox one gets early access to is Second Assualt...not all expansions...as its not getting china rising any earlier than any other platform...the only thing is, we don't know how long of an early release 2nd assault is on xbox one...as the dates for other platforms haven't been confirmed yet...and my guess is it won't be until after china rising...

at least this is what i've read so far...seems like there are multiple different answers to this...

Source about it being the only dlc? Good news if true
Kleptic  +   479d ago

most up to date i could find...but it doesn't really 'confirm' it, it just points to the fact that the only dlc coming first to the xbox one is second assault...

so i'm not positive...but battlelog, under premium access, shows China Rising coming on December 4th for my PC version...so, if the xbox one is getting early access to that too...whats going to happen? second assault the day the console is released, then china rising just a few days later?...

confusing for sure haha...but, i've heard no mention of china rising coming early on any specific platform...so far it appears that one releases on all platforms, at the same time, for premium members...

I love to see some bad company 2 maps DLC in the future.
RedDeadLB  +   480d ago
Actually, Bad Company 1 maps were tons better and larger. Those I'd be happy to see.

OASIS needs to return!
Elwenil  +   480d ago
Looks like I won't be buying that DLC. In no way in hell am I paying for Caspian Border only to get a map I got tired of in BF2 along with two of the worst Battlefield maps ever created, Firestorm and Metro. DICE, WTF are you thinking?
Kleptic  +   480d ago
say what you will about metro...but it had more play time than the rest of BF3 maps...combined...at least according to stats late in 2012 (not sure if it changed later on)...even worse, that included the PC version...where everyone called it a 'console scrub map'...then played it non-stop...

BF4 has operation locker though...a metro-like map, with much better flanking opportunities...and its the same thing...server after server started rotating only that map, with maxed tickets...everyone bitches about it in the forums...yet its the fastest growing 'popular' map in the game so far...

Only maps i dislike so far are Hainan Resort and Flood zone...not really from a design standpoint (although, they're way too random layout wise for 64 players)...but because they run like hot trash...

the only thing is is that Locker is pretty good and works well. Yes it's a frag fest, but at least there's places to run and ways to flank and not nearly as lopsided as Metro.

Locker is currently my favorite map next to Paracel Storm and Golmund Railroad.

Needs Kharg Island
xxxsiegezzz  +   479d ago
Gulf of oman is going to feature a sandstorm. I'm exited
SITH  +   479d ago
This game is so butt ugly on the 36o. I am ready for the upgrade! Can't wait!
