Battlefield 4 DLC pays homage to Titan mode

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike DLC to feature new weapons, gadgets, and game mode.

by

The new upcoming Naval Strike downloadable content pack for Battlefield 4 will include a host of new maps, weapons, assignments, and the Carrier Assault mode, which pays tribute to the Titan mode introduced in 2006's Battlefield 2142.

The original mode featured two teams whose sole objective was to destroy the opposing team's warship, named a Titan. According to the official announcement, the new Carrier Assault mode in Battlefield 4 serves as a "re-imagining" of the Titan mode in Battlefield 2142.

The Naval Strike DLC pack will also include four new multiplayer maps, five new weapons, two gadgets, and a new hovercraft vehicle that can traverse both land and water. Users who purchase a Battlefield 4 Premium membership will gain two weeks of early access to the Naval Strike DLC pack, which is currently slotted for release in Q2, 2014.

Last year, EA launched two Battlefield 4 DLC packs, Second Assault and China Rising. At present, three more DLC packs have been confirmed to follow. More recently, EA announced its plans to roll out a multi-platform patch that would allegedly contain a number of game fixes for Battlefield 4.

You are parading this game ( EA/DICE ) like nothing happened.... are you guys bi polar? do you live in an alternative reality??


How can you even have the balls to sell anything after BF4?! The only explanation I can have is that someone in your HQ is filtering all the REAL feedback from us and giving you the soft fluffy version... can't think of anything else....

Anyone know how many players this carrier assault mode will support in BF4? its kinda strange we only get 64 players in conquest mode, so hopefully this mode supports 64 player servers!!!

2142's Titan mode was my favorite Battlefield game mode ever. Sure most of the time they lagged like hell if you tried to move them but I do remember being in a match where the commanders actually got them next to each other (probably modded), each one trading broadsides with the other while all of us kept trying to board by jumping across and making pirate sounds. Finally, blowing the reactor and having just seconds to clear the Titan by jumping into the sky was always a rush.

This news is really great for me.  2142 was by far my favorite bf game. It was unique, original and ahead of its time.

To hear titan mode is coming back really makes me very happy.

I always thought it was interesting how the ship from the Campaign was called "The Titan", perhaps they were foreshadowing the Naval gamemode for us.

More silly gimmicks and way too much swimming.  Didn't we get enough of that in vanilla BF4?

I did enjoy the titan matches in 2142, but I will not be buying any DLC for BF4.

YES! 2142 is my favorite multiplayer game, certainly the best in the Battlefield franchise, and that's largely because of Titan mode. So glad it's making a comeback. 


Between this and Titanfall I'll be a happy gamer for many many months. At least until Destiny.

I originally posted this news and was taken down twice by gamespot.  Thanks gamespot! lol. 

but this is REALLY REALLY AWESOME NEWS.


Now I feel totally satisfied buying premium. This was the best news I heard all day.  To bring back titan mode is brilliant!!


THANKS DICE!!!

Keen on this DLC however why don't they fix the no sound bug when loading certain gamemodes.  Log in to a TDM and just have music playing with no sound effects at all since last patch. How can something like this be ignored?  Hate seeing advertising for more DLC when you cannot even fix the core game.

I knew it! I knew it! I knew Titan Mode would come back someday!  NOW GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES EA AND MAKE 2143 ALREADY!!

Oh, so that's why I bought premium! Also, please bring back the gun master game mode. It was the best version of a gun game that I've ever played.

I would hope Naval Strike would also include new vehicles... or it'll be pretty lame with everyone in the only attack boat type in the game... and that hovercraft alone won't cut it!

i would buy bf4 just for that mode, but bf4 still have alot of bugs and the netcode is very bad and dice will never fix that because they never fix it in bf3. why can´t dice just fix bf4 and be good devs for once? is it realy that much to ask for a battlefield game that doesn´t have problems and shitty netcode...

Well seems very interesting, personally I still haven't got Premium, at this point I can get it for around 30 euros, but since I have no interest in 2nd Assault I will wait until this one comes out to buy it.

I only say that because titan mode was originally supposed to be very large, and it was. the maps were huge and so were the titans. they had to make the maps really large to fit two of them. Some servers used to ban moving them around because it would cause major lag. I feel like with todays hardware it would work a lot better, but  I do suspect it will be 64 players

I also remember getting a medal if you jumped off the titan just in time to parachute to the ground. that was sooo much fun.

@Centurion95

Awesome man, In my mind it doesn't get much better than that in terms of online mp. I forgot they could be moved because most servers banned them from moving.  Hardware today could handle the titans moving I bet.  another reason it was ahead of its time. Just capping points to bring the shields down was fun.  Those were some serious huge maps.

I know what you are saying but it does say the hovercraft can go on land and water.  Also you will definitely be fighting inside the aircraft carriers. I just cant imagine it all being water. Maybe most of it but I imagine some island points to cap as well.

@collingtonuk

its considered and expansion pack and it comes with quite a bit of content.. 4 new maps, Titan mode, new gadgets and a hovercraft for sure. It's worth it if you're a diehard bf fan.

@Tanares

I do believe sometime in the future we will be getting a 2143, but may not be for awhile. I think we will see battlefront before we see a 2142 sequel which makes me sad. I miss the days of the walkers and the titans and all the other futuristic gadgets. the map design in that game was really well too.

@Tanares  I really hope that's going to be the next Battlefield. I'd be happy with BFBC3, but 2143 would make me giddy.

@crazywolf5150 lol, how I hated that mode

glad when I got my medal for it, didn't have to play that POS everagain

@djpetitte @GamersKing84  Very good point! i remember playing that mode in 2142 and use to lag like hell! it was fun tho and a good objective based mode! i wonder how it will look and play out on the new maps especially since the maps will all be water maps! and with todays hardware on next gen im sure it will support 64 players! i only play conquest the most cause it supports the most players! they should of made rush 64 players too!

@djpetitte @Centurion95 I remember that medal, first time I actually blew up a Titan I jumped off and pulled my chute, game ended before I hit the ground and I was so pissed I didn't get it. Turns out you had to pull the chute at the last moment, when I finally got it was definitly a &$^# yeah moment.


Now if they can bring back the Dog Tag Dagger and I will be a happy camper...
