Battlefield 4’s Naval Strike DLC is out now for Premium subscribers on Xbox One

battlefield 4s naval strike dlc now premium subscribers xbox one 4

Battlefield 4‘s latest DLC, Naval Strike, is available on Xbox One for Premium subscribers as of today, Electronic Arts confirms. The content pack launched for Premium folks on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360 on March 25, but both the PC and Xbox One versions were delayed due to separate issues that needed to be addressed before a release could happen. The PC DLC is still targeted for “early April,” but there’s no specific date for it yet.

As with all Battlefield Premium releases, there’s a two-week window of early-access exclusivity before the packs are available to one and all for purchase. In the case of the PS3/PS4 and Xbox 360 versions, that’s April 8. For the Xbox One, it’s probably April 10 (the DLC started to come online yesterday, March 27). And for the PC, well … we’ll have to wait and see, won’t we?

The Naval Strike pack adds four new maps, a new Carrier Assault multiplayer mode, and an assortment of other knickknacks like weapons, gadgets, assignments, and a vehicle. It’s the third of five planned content packs for the 2013 shooter, following China Rising and Second Assault. All of those releases were delayed following in what is best characterized as a disastrous launch for BF4, which was plagued by server issues and other bugs.
