Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus or, for those versed in Harry Potter lore: never tickle a sleeping dragon. Wise advice that can seemingly be directed Origin’s way, for it looks as though the EA-owned client has preemptively leaked the release date for Battlefield 4’s upcoming expansion pack, Dragon’s Teeth.
According to a Tweet from the company’s official Origin account, the launch date for the DLC has been pegged at July 15th and July 29th for Battlefield 4 Premium members and general release, respectively. And while the message has been promptly removed from the page, it seems safe to assume that the fourth add-on will arrive in and around this alleged window. (After all, DICE confirmed a summer release only a few weeks ago.)
Much like previous content packs, Dragon’s Teeth will introduce soldiers to four new multiplayer maps which are said to take place within densely populated Asian cities. Specifically, this quartet in question will encompass Pearl Market, Propaganda, Lumphini Garden and Sunken Dragon.
With an emphasis on hyper-kinetic urban warfare, this latest pack also includes five all-new weapons spread out across offensive and defensive play styles. First up is the Ballistic shield gadget along with the R.A.W.R. (Remote Assisted Weaponized Robot) and the Chain Link game mode.
And though EA and DICE are yet to confirm this purported release date for Dragon’s Teeth, we will keep you updated as the news appears. Either way, Dragon’s Teeth is the fourth instalment of new content for Battlefield 4, with the fifth and final content pack, Final Stand, due to launch later in the year.
