Even after months of bug-fixing Battlefield 4 is still struggling to make the multiplayer experience meet standards set by the previous games in the franchise.
EA DICE considering the aftermath of a bad release, has decided to delay the upcoming Battlefield 4 Naval Strike DLC on PC and Xbox One citing compatibility issues on PC and animation issues on Xbox One.
When it comes to expected release date, EA is not making the promises though. Although they are targeting early April release for Naval Strike DLC on both platforms, it will only happen if they successfully fix these issues.
Don’t be surprised if you have read the statement before as well but in any case, DICE’s community manager had this to say about the delay:
We know that many Battlefield 4 Premium owners wanted to play Naval Strike today. However, we didn’t want to release the new content until we believed it was quality content.
We are trying to resolve these problems as quickly as possible and hope to release the update in early April for Xbox One and PC. We also want to remind Xbox One and PC owners of Battlefield 4 Premium that they will have two weeks early access for Naval Strike once it’s released. Thanks for your continued patience and passion for our games.
Battlefield 4 Naval Strike DLC was expected to add four new maps and two new game modes, including the class Titan Mode from Battlefield 2142.
Battlefield 4 premium subscribers who have been waiting to try their hands on the four new maps Naval Strike DLC was expected to add will have to wait for a few more weeks.
It’s not the first delay by EA DICE when it comes to Battlefield 4, and it won’t be the last. Battlefield 4 is also scheduled to get Dragon’s Teeth and Final Stand DLCs sometime later this year.
