On Monday, DICE finally unveiled Battlefield 4's fifth and final expansion pack, Final Stand. Taking place in the arctic environments of northern Russia, players will encounter the beginnings of technologies and weapons later to be seen in a certain 22nd century war.
As stated by Kristoffer Bergqvist & David Sirland on a recent Battlelog post:
The four new maps are Hammerhead, Operation Whiteout, Giants of Karelia, and Hangar 21. New futuristic equipment and weapons have also been unveiled, like the HT-95 prototype hover tank, the TDD motion sensor weapon attachment, the previously seen XD-1 Accipiter, and the Rorsch X1 prototype handheld railgun. As usual, ten more ranks have also been added. Full list of the known new additions:
DICE LA has not given a release date for the expansion, however, in a rather surprising move, the work-in-progress build of Final Stand is currently being tested on the Community Test Environment. As stated in the same blog post:
With an update on Tuesday, all Final Stand content was added to the CTE, and the maps are being alternated through testing on a daily basis. Currently, Giants of Karelia is being tested, with Operation Whiteout having been tested on Tuesday. Hangar 21 and Hammerhead are set to be tested in the coming days. Currently, the dev team is looking for feedback on these issues in particular: General Map Feedback, Game mode feedback, Vehicle load outs, control, handling and HUD, Physical cloud layer feedback, New gadget and attachment feedback, and, as always, Bugs and Issues. For those of you with Premium that are not already in the CTE and want to get in on the action, more spots a being opened up for testing, so head on over to the CTE Battlelog and cross your fingers.
For those of you in the CTE, hop on a server, give it try, and remember to leave feedback for devs on the forums. For the rest of you, how do you think things are looking for Final Stand so far? Are happy with the direction DICE LA is taking the expansion? Let us know below!
