(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Over the weekend DICE released information about Battlefield 4’s upcoming DLC, Naval Strike, a DLC pack that adds new multiplayer maps, weapons, gadgets, and vehicles.
The main feature introduced in Naval Strike is a new mode called Carrier Assault, modeled after the Titan mode in Battlefield 2142.
In this new mode the objective is to destroy the enemy teams carrier before they destroy yours, which can be done by full map control or assaulting the carrier as infantry.
“Both teams start on their own carrier and race to control the missile launchers placed on the map, by capturing the control points near them,” explained DICE. “This will automatically launch missiles towards the enemy carrier throughout the round, eventually destroying its hull and making it open for infantry attacks.”
Once the carrier assault portion of the game starts teams can either drive a boat to the carrier or use a parachute to land. When you enter inside the carrier two M-COM stations must be destroyed in order to unlock new areas of the carrier.
In order for a team to win, the carrier hull’s health has to be at 0% or the two M-COMs have to be destroyed.
“Our goal has been to make Carrier Assault a really engaging game mode, and we truly believe the amount of variety present each round will assure this. You start out fighting a big-scale war with sea, land, and air vehicles controlling the map, and then everything evolves into an infantry-focused, close quarter fight inside both carriers at the same time!”
Battlefield 4 Naval Strike will be available in late March for Premium members first.
