An EA rep has acknowledged that some new Battlefield Premium members have had trouble downloading the Second Assault DLC for Battlefield 4 on Xbox One, prompting the company to investigate the cause of the issue.

"I know some of you have said already that it is being looked into but I wanted to just confirm it for you so you guys have a blue post to refer to," said EA_Rick on the Battlefield 4 Battlelog site. "Right now all I can say is that we are aware of this issue and are currently investigating this with Microsoft. Once we have some more details I'll be sure to let you know."

Battlefield 4's Second Assault multiplayer expansion boasts four Frostbite 3 remastered Battlefield 3 maps, as well as the Dune Buggy, remastered weapons and more. It's out now for Premium subscribers on Xbox One, and will be widely available on December 3rd.

I managed to download it but it took a few times for it to start. Also I really wish there were some servers that cycled through every map. Joining DLC only servers is annoying because there are so few that are actually active. Most of them have 0 players.

They should also look into the fact that I bought Premium and it wasn't enough thanks to tax. Probably not their issue, but it still pisses me off.

@2, and when you do find a server to play on, the majority of the time you get lag spikes all over the place - and I know for a fact that it's not my connection D:

How about fixing Smartglass functionality too? It is convinced my Surface RT isn't a tablet, and it's only BF4 that acts that way.

I've never been so disappointed with a game in my life. Bought the season pass for another $50 after buying the game and all that I get is dropped matches to the dashboard that then cause the game to freeze and need to be ejected and re-inserted to restart, no ability to browse the servers and play what game mode/map I'd prefer to play, joining into a conquest and being placed into a domination or TDM, reset campaign stats, and the list goes on and on. Gotta love that all that EA and DICE give players like myself in return for this crap is a pistol scope and some XP that I still won't get to use accordingly for my issues....AND how can EA talk about the Second Assault download issues when you can't even play a match on the "old" maps anyways!? This whole dilemma is absolutely absurd and if they're not going to refund us for this beyond shit service than they best damn fix it soon. I surely won't be purchasing another EA product in the near future. Sincerely, your very pissed off customer!

I got my download to work by exiting the game and closing it out on the dashboard. When you log in make sure it registers you as a premium member (go to the premium or store screen and make sure it doesn't say "buy premium") then try to play a second assault map, it should allow you to download it then.

worked for me, hope it works for the rest of you

except for @8, that guy can piss off

I am quite confused with all these Battlefield 4 issues on the xbox one, I have only had the campaign save corruption but I managed to work around it. I am glad anyway that Dice are on top of the problems and hopefully we get more people playing second assault soon.

Hey, you know what would be awesome? BRING BACK THE FUCKING SQUADING UP PREMATCH JOINING SYSTEM! This is bullshit that I spent $500 on a new console and $65 on a new game and can't even play with friends!

I'm LOL'ing at all the jealous kids who can't afford an XBox One trying to troll it. It doesn't work, it just makes you look very poor and bitter.

@23 don't know why your crying, I get a message when about to play a game, even in prematch lobbies, saying a friend is joining a server, do I want to join, I hit a for yes, and bam im on there team, sorted, no issues.

OT - You guys aint missing much, theres barely any SA servers to play on, and no TDM for some reason, hoping that changes.
Although conquest 64 player on these maps are ace, the changes to operation metro, makes B a much more challengable flag now, one of the best changes I think

When I bought premium I couldn't access the new maps after I downloaded them, I just turned my Xbox one off and back on and it was fine. And these systems are always gonna have problems when they come out, if your not willing to sit through some problems getting ironed out than you really shouldn't buy a new system soon as it comes out. I've run into some problems here and there but the overall experience of the new Xbox definitely makes the few problems I've run into worth dealing with. Sometimes BF4 is hard to get online than I just play some Ryse and try later. And I don't know what that guys talking about wanting to browse the servers, I browse the servers every time I play and pick which one I join. All I know is that BF4 is such an improvement on the One over the 360 version I can handle the servers being shitty once in awhile till they get the kinks ironed out, it's not like they're not working on it.

I'm hoping to pick this up in a week or two. Is the campaign any good? Better than BF3?

I thought the campaign was really weak and it's only 7 missions, 3 of which are mostly aboard navy ships. There are good parts, and a few good missions, but I also played through 5 times entirely because of glitches. I will say it's worth playing through on the Xbox One because of how amazing the graphics look. That's about it.

With all the issues this game has been having honestly I think I'm done with this series for a few years. Just too many glitches and completely wiping out of SP progress is ridiculous. And its happening on all of the platforms both current and next gen. Very disappointed in EA and Dice. Feel like as fans we should deserve more.

Multiplayer these days always seem to be finished after release, it's a broken glitch fest until then. Gotta love that
