Battlefield 4: Second Assault DLC could include Caspian Border & Operation Metro – rumour

Wednesday, 26th June 2013 09:43 GMT By Dave Cook

Battlefield 4′s Second Assault DLC will include four fan-favourite maps remade in Frostbit 3, according to DICE. Based on polls carried out by the studio, and insight from the developer, those are currently Caspian Border and Operation Metro by a wide margin.

YouTuber RivaLxfactor and MP1st have been playing detective on this matter, and have come across some interesting – but absolutely unverified – nods as to what fan-favourite maps might be included in the expansion.

The Second Assault pack’s descriptor reads, “This Premium expansion pack will feature four of the most fan-favorite maps from Battlefield 3, redesigned to take advantage of our advanced Frostbite 3 engine and enhanced to include new multiplayer features from Battlefield 4.”

When fans asked Battlefield 4′s core gameplay designer Alan Kertz what the fan-favourite maps were during this Reddit AMA, he replied, “Metro and Caspian are runaway favourites.”

Lastly, this DICE poll asks fans directly what Battlefield 3 maps they’d like to see return in Second Assault, with Caspian Border and Operation Metro placed as clear favourites.

Would you like to see both maps return? Let us know below.

Battlefield 4 hits PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 across North America on October 29, and Europe November 1. It will come to PS4 and Xbox One sometime after.

    Ha nice! Operation Metro is an awesome map. Not a big fan of Caspian Border though.

    Caspian Border might be more interesting second time around now that they have pilot training :D Sucked for infantry always being stomped by vehicles or snipers. Would be cool to see Strike at Karkand make it into BF4.

    Operation Metro is possibly the worst Battlefield map I’ve ever played.

    People don’t play it because it’s fun or they like it especially much, they play it because it’s a chokepoint map where you can grind out a ton of kills and points extremely quickly, which is sadly the game Battlefield has become thanks to the ridiculous unlock system they’ve instated.

    Because grinding out lots of kills, getting lots of unlocks once in a while is so boring, right?

    Seriously, you don’t HAVE to play that one map out of 30 available maps atm. Noone’s forcing you.

    The player rented servers are exactly why I stopped playing BF3. I don’t mind them being there, but they should have more DICE run normal ones. I HATE playing matches that have max tickets. I don’t always have that long to play just one round.

    Please don’t bring back BF3 maps. They’ve already had a good Frostbite treatment. Bring some old stuff from 1942-2042

    Operation Metro is the most frustrating Battlefield 3. By far. One more reason to ignore the next iteration.
