Second Assault, the second downloadable content expansion for Battlefield 4 originally launched months ago on Xbox One in November 2013 and had been expected to shortly follow on other platforms, before EA and DICE derailed their post-launch content schedule in what they claimed was a move to divert all developer attention onto addressing major issues with the base-game.

Today however, we finally have a release date for Second Assault on PC, PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360. February 18th 2014 is the date for Battlefield Premium members, with the pack being made available for individual purchase to standard issue players two weeks later on March 4th.
Second Assault contains four immortal, fan-favorite maps from Battlefield 3; Operation Firestorm, Caspian Border, Gulf of Oman and of course Operation Metro. Each map has been redesigned thanks to the power of Frostbite 3 and is now more stunning than ever. Battlefield 4 veterans will recognize the surroundings, but also notice various changes – big and small – in map layout.
DICE has also revealed the first details of the next upcoming content pack, Naval Strike:
Experience Dynamic Ocean Combat

Features four all-new maps set in the South China Sea: “Blow open a crashed passenger plane and capture fishing villages across the tropical Lost Islands. Drop a submarine on your foes as you infiltrate a naval base or rush between shipping docks and rocky islands on the massive Wave Breaker map. Wage war across stormy seas in the largest ocean stretch in a Battlefield map yet with Nansha Strike. Storm an abandoned cliff-side resort, or get lost in the breathtaking vistas in Operation Mortar.”

Naval Strike also introduces: five new weapons, the amphibious hovercraft vehicle, ten assignments and the all-new Carrier Assault mode, which is an homage to the fan-favorite, Titan mode from Battlefield 2142.

Key Features
  • 4 all-new multiplayer maps set in the South China Sea: Lost Islands, Nansha Strike, Wave Breaker & Operation Mortar
  • 5 weapons all-new to Battlefield 4
  • Introducing the amphibious hovercraft vehicle
  • 2 additional gadgets
    • 3GL (3 grenade launcher) attachment for the Assault class
    • Anti-Heli Mine; an aircraft disabling projectile for the Engineer class
  • Carrier Assault game mode which is a re-imagining of the classic Battlefield 2142 Titan Mode
  • 10 new assignments with unlocks for each
No word on when Naval Strike will arrive, and it will most likely be Xbox One exclusive again when it does, but let's hope it doesn't take anywhere near as long this time.
