The lights are on
EA has given word that Battlefield 4's Naval Strike DLC is now rolling out to non-Premium players. Is it worth enlisting?
The aquatic-themed DLC pack focuses on amphibious assaults, and contains four new maps set in the South China Sea. It also adds a new Carrier Assault game mode, which requires players to capture M-com stations to fire missiles at the opposition's aircraft carrier. Here's the original launch trailer for a better idea of what's included:
Battlefield 4 Premium members got first dibs on the new DLC, but a tweet from the official Battlefield twitter account says the content is now available for everyone on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
While Premium owners picked up Naval Strike for free, regular users will have to pay $15 for the new content. Is it worth it? Here's a takeaway excerpt from Matt Bertz's hands-on impressions:
"As much as I like the Wave Breaker map, given the poor performance, quality of same-ness to many of the maps, and disappointing Carrier Assault mode, it's tough to recommend Naval Strike. "
