Although we don’t have a release date for the Battlefield 4 Final Stand DLC yet (it says Fall 2014 on their website), EA and DICE have revealed the four maps in the upcoming expansion pack with the above video, while also promising that many more details will be shown in the coming weeks.
As well, Kristoffer Bergqvist and David Sirland of DICE LA talked a bit about Final Stand, the maps (Operation Whiteout, Hammerhead, Giants of Karelia, Hangar 21), the Battle pick-ip rail gun, the hover tank prototype, and more:
With Final Stand, we knew from the start that we wanted to evolve the Battlefield experience and offer weapons and vehicles that behave differently than anything else on the battlefield. Taking place on the artic landscape of Russia, where the scientists of today are experimenting with technology that will define the battlefields of tomorrow (Battlefield 2142, anyone?), Final Stand will deliver four maps that are unique and distinct. With its military installations set against a wintry landscape, expect intense, infantry-focused combat.
Players will also discover secret prototype weapons and vehicles that further tie into the fiction around Final Stand, and to some extent the Battlefield series. This includes a Battle pick-up rail gun that fires a single round of powerful kinetic energy, and the hover tank prototype, which uses eight experimental jet propulsion engines to nimbly move around the battlefield. We have a few more surprises up our sleeves that we’ll share with you in the weeks ahead.
If you’re a part of the Community Test Environment on PC, you can test pre-release versions of the Final Stand maps beginning today.
