By on February 14, 2014 at 9:42 am

Details on the Naval Strike DLC for Battlefield 4 have been released, revealing something that will make Battlefield 2142 fans very happy: a Titan Mode.

Premium players will get two weeks early access to the DLC, which includes four new maps, five new weapons, a new vehicle, and the new ‘Carrier Assault’ game mode. Here’s the official list:

  • 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
  • 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
  • 10 new assignments with unlocks for each

The website for Naval Strike has gone live, and can be found here.

Thanks Tim, now I have a boner at work :/ Really looking forward to this ^_^

 

I was only talking to Foo and Shin yesterday about how i miss the 2142 days and titan mode, pretty keen for this! If i can fix my performance issues -_____-

 

Hovercrafts could be awesome. Or horrible. I’m mostly hoping awesome.

Also curious to see how Anti-Heli Mines will work

 

Looking at the bottom for the timeline of the DLC, it seems they are going to be rushing out the rest of the DLC all within this year… March/April/May for Naval, and then June/July/August for Dragons Teeth and Final stand….
Not to mention Feb 18th for Second Assault.

 

Nice one, barely played BF4 much so hopefully this will draw me back in.

 

Carrier Assault game mode which is a re-imagining of the classic Battlefield 2142 Titan Mode

Yes. Cant wait for this game mode,Loved 2142 titan’s mode.

I wouldn’t be surprised if most of the groundwork has been laid already. Also the reason this one was pushed back was due to their average launch (less than average for some but I hardly suffered an issue). So yeah, agree it could be an issue but hopefully it will be fine!

“3GL (3 grenade launcher) attachment for the Assault class”
Is this the Metal Storm of Australia’s stacked grenade system?

Yeah my mate put it into perspective for me:
“yea well just means we have more variety to play as expansions come out
instead of like china rising playing the same 4 maps over and over”
Which is true.

But I am really looking forward to the titan mode resurrection with aircraft carriers etc instead!!!

 

Haha yeah, I want this carrier mode to be the tits :P Here’s hoping!

lol so much for stopping everything and fixing the issues. Just another fabrication.

More stuff to gloss over this failed attempt at a shooter. Not getting any more of my money.

Time to clear out the belly button lint – see anyone can take part in naval exercises.

 

“•Anti-Heli Mine; an aircraft disabling projectile for the Engineer class”

*Shakes head* , because that’s all we need… it’s already a struggle to keep a heli airborne longer than 30 seconds , what a retarded idea.

 

Battlefield 2142 was my most favorite out of the entire series besides BF2, might have to start playing BF4 again once this DLC is out.

they have been fixing the issues, the DLC has been pushed back on PC a fair bit. So hardly a fabrication…though there still are a fair issues that need resolved.

In saying that, im loving bf4, frustrating at times…but overall loving it! like the looks of this DLC as well :O amphibious hovercrafts sound dangerous…the boats that are in the water only are fucking hard enough!!

 

Titan mode? I might need to buy this.. but no, I wont. It’s still not going to be as good as BFBC2 or 2142.

but still no hover tanks or mech walkers :(

You can get BF4 + Premium for $70 on origin atm until Monday provided you use the promo code “LOVE”

 

Still can’t control capital ships :(
