After “Second Assault,” a third expansion pack, “Naval Strike” will launch in late March for premium members. In “Naval Strike,” players will engaged in “intense water-based combat as the Chinese armada takes the fight to the sea.” Gamers will have access to new weapons, gadgets, amphibious vehicles and four new maps – Lost Island, Nansha Strike, Wave Breaker and Operation Mortar.

EA is currently holding Player Appreciation Month for “Battlefield 4” gamers. DICE General Manager Karl Magnus Troedsson stated that the developer was offering “a month filled with fun community missions and daily giveaways that you get just for jumping into a match” during the entire month of February.

Troedsson continued that, "We are further improving a number of items commonly referred to as 'netcode.' This will tighten the overall multiplayer experience, and we will be able to share these items with you in detail soon." EA will also be offering special bonuses and hosting multiple events.

"In this added social layer, you can team up with your friends to create your own social space and accumulate stats together. We’re also working on other feature additions that you’ve been asking for -- stay tuned for more,” Troedsson added, assuring players that platoons would be returning this month. More details were given via “Battlefield’s” blog.
