The “Battlefield 4” Second Assault DLC release date has been confirmed by Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment for the PC, PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360. According to a report from Aus Gamers on Feb. 14, the development team disclosed that the expansion pack should be coming out next week.
The Second Assault DLC was first released for the Xbox One on Nov. 22nd of last year as part of an exclusive deal between Microsoft and Electronic Arts. The PC, PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360 versions of “Battlefield 4” were initially slated to come out shortly afterwards. However, technical issues from the video game forced Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment to delay the development of the expansion pack.
The DLC includes four redesigned maps from “Battlefield 3.” The development team revamped the visuals using the Frostbite 3 graphics engine in addition to making other changes to the areas.
