Battlefield 4 has officially launched as of today, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start planning ahead for the numerous updates and expansions well on their way in the coming months.
Specifically, it has been revealed that one of the first DLC content packs for the game, Battlefield 4: China Rising, will be available to Premium subscribers of the popular shooter in early access on December 3rd. After being seen in the in-game Premium content calendar of the game’s menus, the China Rising expansion will be available exclusively to Premium members for two weeks before landing for everyone else playing the game, which will be two weeks later on December 17th.
Whether the content will be available early to download for players that pre-ordered the game, as the content pack was offered as a pre-order bonus, will remain to be seen if it can be downloaded on December 3rd early, or on December 17th with everyone else.
Battlefield 4 releases today on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, followed by releases on PS4 (November 15th, 2013) and Xbox One (November 22nd, 2013) for their respective console launches.
