Battlefield 4's Naval Strike DLC--which was expected to launch on March 25 but was delayed earlier this week--is rolling out now on Xbox One for Battlefield Premium members. Developer DICE announced the news in a blog post on the Battlefield Blog.

DICE delayed the Naval Strike DLC on Xbox One because it needed extra time to addresses animation system issues. The developer was originally targeting a new release date for early April, so its release today is actually ahead of schedule.

PC players aren't as fortunate. Naval Strike for PC remains delayed because the combination of the expansion's release and planned updates would "increase performance issues on mid-range to high-end PCs," DICE said in a statement. The developer is working to fix this issue now.

The Naval Strike DLC for Battlefield 4 introduces four new multiplayer maps, five new weapons, two gadgets, and a new hovercraft vehicle that can traverse both land and water. It also adds the Carrier Assault mode, which is an homage to Battlefield 2142's fan-favorite Titan mode.

You can learn more about the Naval Strike DLC in our video preview embedded above.
