First image of Battlefield 4's Dragon's Teeth DLC revealed -- What do you think?

Plus, EA teases that we'll get a first look at gameplay sometime this week.

Electronic Arts has released the first image of Battlefield 4's upcoming expansion, Dragon's Teeth, and teased that we'll get to see the content in action sometime later this week. The information comes by way of EA marketing man Dan Sheridan, who shared the details earlier today through Twitter.

As you can see in the image above, Dragon's Teeth will bring a new two-handed ballistic shield to Battlefield 4. New maps and weapons are also likely to be found in the expansion.

Dragon's Teeth is the fourth of five planned expansions for Battlefield 4. It follows China Rising, Second Assault, and Naval Strike, and is preceded by the aptly named Final Stand.

Despite some technical issues at launch, Battlefield 4 has become "exceedingly successful" in terms of sales and gameplay, according to EA.

I've decided i'm going to pass on BF4 and wait for BC3. Thankfully I didn't buy the game.

Nice pic.

Here's a question: will this DLC stop me from getting stuck on every last tiny bit of raised scenery?

Prime example : siege of Shanghai, conquest, the restaurant at Echo. You shoot out the window, go to run through chasing enemy, stop dead. Look down, stuck on curb-height window frame. Die.

Answer : no of course it won't.

It doesn't show the rubber banding or the massive hit issues or the massive hit issues the riot shield will introduce. Or the random DCs. That's what I think.

If I wanted to get killed by riot shields and Desert Eagles, I'd play CoD. Unless these maps are well designed, I'm pretty much done with this game. Glad I didn't drop the dough for Premium.

most of this community has made out bf4 to b complete crap and thanks to you there is now even less chance to get playing on a map since it's mostly fixed now, for people who haven't played bf4 it works fine and gameplay is great... anything in a warzone is possible on it do not listen to these cry babys.... most of them probably get owned ingame then come on here to put the game down anyway.

@DemocraticTroll  freeze every 2-3 matches? It hasn't done that since the first week or two. The game is still not perfect but it's completely playable and almost bug free.


They just need to get the server rate from 10Hz to 20 or 30Hz and I'd call it done. That and maybe further tone down the spotting system, the mini map is way over powered.

@Supersoldier317 BF4 has dual screen option for the Maps; which I love. BF3 doesn`t. 

I even think MS with Titanfall should have paid Dice for that feature.

@Blank2k2 Yeah; ............imagine a layered kevlar & titanium shield with a titanium skin to stop some battle fragments from killing/maiming you.

@ztron370  You're missing out, BF4 is the best multiplayer FPS out there.

@anvilone  

That's too bad if you stop playing... Anyways, you won't be missed.

@techs3ek  Rofl, no it isn't. Every Naval Strike map has massive rubber banding issues, not to mention technical glitches including the going on 8 months-old sound glitch on map load.

@alenth  Yes they haven't played BF4 at all. Because DLC changes it.

@everson_rm  I wanted it, and was close to buying it. But it took too long to get the servers working right. All of my friends quit playing before they did, so I wouldn't have had anyone to play with. I passed. Bummer too, because when they work, Battiefield games are incredible.

@asmoddeuss  you clearly haven't played it lately. it plays just fine

@nomadsalt @anvilone  He will, by EA and by other like minded gamers (the majority of BF players who aren't pushover apologist douches.)

@berzerk0912 @wookiegr  And the first open beta that has DLC made by a non indie developer.

@grenadehh  They fixed Naval Strike more or less with the server upgrades they've done. I've been on 64 player Naval Strike on PS4 a ton lately and it's perfectly smooth now except for right at the end with the cluster F in the carriers.

@ngboy because bf4 works fine on your platform doesnt mean it works on the other 4.

@grenadehh @nomadsalt @anvilone  Why would he be missed by other like minded gamers? They aren't playing the game anymore if they're like him. And you can't say that EA misses him either since he already bought the game

@grenadehh @nomadsalt @anvilone  most BF fans agree BF4 is a bad iteration. But its previous have been pretty good.

I can forgive DICE for one bad iteration of Battlefield from all the good ones they have made. I will not forgive if the next iteration is still bad how ever because then it shows they learnt nothing.

To be "completely" done with the franchise/game is dumb however, because you don't allow any opportunity to have them turn it around and get back to making a great game.

Bad Company 2 was not overly great but not terrible, but then BF3 which followed it was miles better.

So really the best way to think is "i won't pre order instantly for BF5 or what ever its called, i'll wait a month after its released to hear from player's".

To be completely done with it, is rather retarded. Plus a lot of the mistakes of BF4 was due to EA pushing an early release for console launch.

EA even got sued for it by investors. So try not to overly blame the DICE team. They do usually produce great games.

@everson_rm  in simple terms it's when your moving and the game keeps skipping you back a second or so. It feels like 'rubberbanding' because you're moving and bouncing back, etc.

In more technical terms it's the push latency (faked zero latency) catching up to all the missing/dropped/slow server packets. This usually means your local client is behind the server client quite a bit generally caused by both latency (ping) and bandwidth issues.

@lomar07 @baldmanz @Infinity_Gauntl @everson_rm  Sorry about my ignorance, but what is rubberbanding?

grenadehh

@alenth @popin-shopin @ngboy @asmoddeuss  No. PS4 != everyone who plays BF4 and no one gives a damn if it works on PS4. It still doesn't work, at all, on PC. IDK if it works on other systems but on PC its broken.
