DICE has revealed new details on the upcoming Dragon's Teeth DLC for Battlefield 4. DICE senior animator Ryan Duffin has revealed (via Polygon) that the DLC will include a ballistic shield which will serve as mobile cover. He noted that the plan was initially to create a shield that could be used in combination with handguns but development schedules and last-gen hardware memory constraints made that impossible. He added that there was resistance to the shield at first but said, "the more we assessed it, the more we realised it was a better feature. It turns out that stopping bullets in a first-person shooter is a ton of fun. We're confident that it will create a new dynamic for the game."
Players will be able melee attacl with the shield, which has an attack range of about one meter.
The DLC pack, the fourth of five expansions for the game, releases thus summer. It will focus on urban warfare.
