Battlefield 4 Naval Strike expansion delayed for PC

New, 55 comments

The PC release of Battlefield 4's third downloadable expansion, Naval Strike, will not launch alongside the console versions today due to a recently discovered issue, according to a post on the Battlelog.

The expansion was slated to launch across PC and consoles March 25 for Battlefield Premium members and non-Premium members April 8. The company was unable to share a set date for the expansion's PC release.

"We've detected an issue and it needs to be solved. Quality is our number one priority and we will not release Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC until we feel it meets the highest quality level possible," the post reads. "We are also working on a larger update to release alongside Battlefield 4 Naval Strike on PC that will address the issue of Tablet Commander not working correctly."

Naval Strike features dynamic weather patterns, four nautical-themed maps and a new game mode. The expansion will also introduce a new vehicle, the two-seater ACV hovercraft, allowing players to travel on water and across land. The new Carrier Assault mode, a homage to the Titan mode of Battlefield 2142, is a two-stage battle set in the South China Sea.

The four maps include Operation Mortar, a former vacation island featuring an ancient mountaintop fort with pirate-era cannons. The Lost Islands map consists of closely grouped islands. The close-range Wave Breaker map is set on a submarine base and Nansha Strike is set on a vehicle-heavy industrialized island.
