Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth Expansion Takes You to a Floating Restaurant Next Week

The shooter's fourth DLC pack adds new maps and a new game mode.

Battlefield 4's selection of content will expand again in one week's time, as Electronic Arts today confirmed that the Dragon's Teeth DLC pack will be available on July 15 for Battlefield Premium members.

Dragon's Teeth is the fourth DLC pack to be released for Battlefield 4 since its release last year. Its primary additions are a new multiplayer mode, Chain Link, which is a twist on the classic Conquest mode, and four new maps set in Asian locales: Lumphini Garden, Pearl Market, Propaganda, and Sunken Dragon. Also being added are a ballistic shield (which players of the Battlefield Hardline beta will already be familiar with), ten assignments (along with accompanying unlocks), and a remote-controlled vehicle called the R.A.W.R.

As with each of the first three expansions, Dragon's Teeth will be available to owners of the $50 Battlefield Premium before anyone else--in this case, on July 15, the date the Origin Twitter account inadvertently leaked recently--and will be free. It will then become available for purchase on its own to non-members for $15 on July 29.

The last of the five planned DLC packs for Battlefield 4, Final Stand, has not yet been detailed, but is expected out prior to the release of Hardline (which is being developed by Dead Space maker Visceral Games) on October 21.

Battlefield 4 was widely criticized for the buggy and unstable state it was released in last year--even EA's CEO called it "unacceptable." Since then, developer DICE has made strides in improving the game as EA attempts to overhaul is quality assurance process. The game's maligned netcode has been updated as DICE turned to its community for help testing the game.

Have you moved on from Battlefield 4, or are you still interested in the new modes and maps being introduced? Let us know in the comments.

Despite the game not being fixed, DICE keeps releasing DLC.

Can't wait to see the new bugs and glitches they have for everyone.

I am trying to stay interested in BF4. I play it on my PS4 and it still looks phenomenal but with some many changes to the netcode and what not it's been tough to stay interested. I'll get back on and check out this map pack though. Battlefield used to be my favorite shooter. The struggle since it's release has saddened me.

Anyone experienced changes In gameplay after yesterday's update? I feel as If movement and the overall feel of the game has improved after the update yesterday, which obviously is a good thing. Nevertheless, schedules cleared for July 15. Gotta go get new shitbuckets as well. LOL

Anyone else pissed off at dice for lowering the time limit on carrier assault down to 10 mins. Its so stupid, if both teams are doing equaly well then the game will end before either carrier is breached.

I'm excited to see what all is going to be in the new expansion. I just hope it comes with fewer bugs than the last one. No one likes the rubber-banding problem and weird lagging we got with Naval Strike. Hell, I still get those problems from time to time, tho very rarely anymore.

Most people say they are burned out on military shooters but personally, I still love them...I just wish they would be more original with the gameplay. I think there are not enough good co-op games out there, and it would be great to have a cop or military themed FPS with a long campaign (like Skyrim long) where you and a few friends respond to calls all over the city. It would be nice to have a character that actually mattered and wasn't just cannon fodder that would respawn every few minutes. With all the great visuals we have these days, developers need to start concentrating on innovative gameplay more than anything else.

Naval Strike had some of the best guns BF ever had in its history. Can't wait for the new arsenal.

Still play once or twice per week. I like BF4 (on PC) as much I liked BF3. Would like to see more done to make the gaming less frustrating at times but overall I find gameplay pretty solid.

I'm still playing Battlefield 4 on Xbox One. Nothing wrong with the game anymore. Looking forward to playing news maps soon.

I loved BF4 but did pull my hair out a bit with the crashes and glitches that occurred.  It had gotten smoother and started seeing more consistency in performance about 3-4 months out from launch and has since been much more like a complete game.  I would gladly go back to Battlefield 4 but several of my friends are hitting up Titanfall for multiplayer play.  The DLC tends to be awesome with Battlefield simply because the maps really help determine the excellence of the multiplayer experience.  Hardline could be good but I played the beta and felt a bit confused on the concept.  I will pas no judgement until the game actually comes out though.

Ballistic shield....against assault rifles, lol, and people complained about cod riot shields

The clueless buffoons at Dice just reduced the timer for Carrier Assault to a whopping 10 minutes, thus ruining another game mode which wasn't that good in the first place.  I'm sure Toothless Dragons will continue along those lines by displaying Dices one true talent...their talent to make bad things worse.

Micro-transactions are garbage. DLC is garbage. Premium is garbage. BF4 is garbage! DICE is garbage! EA is garbage!

The assignments are already up, but that might be because I'm a member of CTE

I like how, unlike battlefield 3, these maps can be used in all game modes, so we aren't getting the "close quarters" and "Armored Kill" type maps that only really work in select game modes. Makes the map select in the core game types like conquest and rush feel much bigger.

looking forward to this map pack as i prefer urban maps, but i am going to actively resist any hype out there because that has resulted in disappointment in the past

@Psycold Hey dude, I share the same dream of more co-op based games. Me and a friend always play in same squad and try to make it as cooperative as possible. 

I think The Division will answer the need for a coop game with scale the size of Skyrim. I just hope it delivers and offers both First and Third person options.

we got a Cokc on Duty player here people.  Give this girl a break. lol

@wastinnaziscum All of that is server dependent. I play on a server that only allows 2 snipers or DMRs per team and it's awesome

@madcat_mikie um, no, you can only play cap the flag on second assault maps (lame) you can only play carrier assault on naval strike maps (lame) and im sure you will only be able to play chain link on these new maps- its exactly the same as bf3 in that the dlcs are very cut off experiences from the main game. at least cod lets you play all game modes on all maps, ho hum.

@spartanx169x @Sadek You havent but my friends and I have. Also day before yesterday both my friend and I couldnt even play because the browser kept telling us we need to purchase premium to play, which I've had since the game released (a big mistake on my part). 


This game is highly inconsistent. A bunch of us have gone back to battlefield 3 because its still pretty awesome and really stable.

@lordy365 @Psycold When The Division was first announced I was extremely excited for it, but the more new Ubisoft games I play, the more I fear we will not get what we were originally shown. Not only did they remove stuff from Watch Dogs but they lied about it, leaving PC Gamers to activate these features by editing a few files in notepad. Beyond that, most of their games are too similar...you can almost guarantee there will be some sort of radio beacon tower thing you have to climb and activate/deactivate in order to see that part of the map, etc. I would keep your expectations pretty low, I still hope I'm proven wrong.

@Aureoloss @wastinnaziscum I would like to find a server that is similar to the Project Reality system for BF2 where you are placed in squads with preset amounts of a class per squad, like one Designated Marksman per squad, a few riflemen, one machine gunner, etc etc.

@ryogapower @madcat_mikie I don't think that's what he meant, he's saying it's nice that maps seem to be designed keeping all core game modes in mind. where as in BF3 some of the maps in DLC's were solely built with the DLC game mode in mind, and thus they didn't really work well in core game modes like conquest,
