These maps, revamped with Battlefield 4's Levolution features, are Caspian Border, Operation Metro, Gulf of Oman and Operation Firestorm. The news was revealed during a live stream of the Battlefield 4 Showdown event
), in which the top European and North American Battlefield players went head-to-head in Battlefield 4's multiplayer modes.
Second Assault is one of five DLC packs planned for Battlefield 4, with the second DLC - China Rising - launching on December 3rd for all platforms. It is unclear exactly how long Microsoft's next-gen console has the first DLC as an exclusive, but we presume it will be somewhere along the same month-long time windows previously seen.
