Battlefield 4 Second Assault DLC to have four fan-favorite BF3 maps

DICE has revealed that four fan-favorite maps from Battlefield 3 will be remade with the Frostbite 3 engine for Battlefield 4. These maps will be part of the Second Assault DLC, which will be coming first to Xbox One as a timed exclusive sometime after the new console launches.
So far, Caspian Border and Operation Metro are "runaway favorites" for the pack, gameplay designer Alan Kertz said in a Reddit thread (via GameSpot). No hint was offered at what the leading candidates were for the final two maps. DICE did the same for Battlefield 3 when it recreated four popular BF2 maps in Frostbite 2.0 as the Back to Karkand DLC.
Of course, if this poll (via MP1st) is any indication, Grand Bazaar and Strike at Karkand have an edge for the final two slots, with the latter already having been part of the Karkand DLC. Seine Crossing would be the alternate for Karkand if DICE wants to stick purely with BF3 maps. Whatever maps get the treatment, expect them to be a lot more destructible in a big way.
Battlefield 4 is scheduled to launch on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 29. It will come to Xbox One and PS4 later. China Rising DLC is available to those that pre-order the game.
