Today sees another great big update launching for Battlefield 4, ahead of the release of the game's Dragon's Teeth DLC for Premium members next week. This latest patch introduces an array of fixes, as well as additional options, like being able to double tap forward to sprint.

The patch released yesterday on Xbox 360 and today on Xbox One. You can get the patch notes in full below, courtesy of the Battlefield 4 Control Room. Meanwhile, Dragon's Teeth will be arriving on July 15th for Premium members, before launching on July 29th for everyone else. It bundles four new maps, as detailed on Battlelog:

  • Lumphini Garden: Cruise with fast-moving PWC’s on the canals in the pristine park to get the upper hand.
  • Pearl Market: Wage wars within the bustling alleyways and upon the rooftops of the marketplace.
  • Propaganda: Fight among massive despotic monuments in the grey concrete battleground.
  • Sunken Dragon: Battle between modern high rises as you wreak havoc in a floating restaurant or drain the lake opening up for a frontal vehicle assault.

Dragon's Teeth also adds the new unlockable ballistic shield and a new game mode called Chain Link, in which players must link capture points to win: a twist on the classic Conquest mode. There's ten new assignments with unique unlocks and a new R.A.W.R. Battle pickup, as well as a well-armed RC ground vehicle.
