Will boats make it into current gen consoles?

As I'm sure many of you know, there are no naval vehicles in the console versions of the BF4 beta.

Now, I'm either going to have BF4 on the PC or the Xbox One, depending on what decision I make, so this doesn't really apply to me personally, but I'm still interested nonetheless. I'm almost certain that there will be a boat SOMEWHERE in the x360 or ps3 version of the game, but have we had any confirmation.



PC players, how does the new naval warfare units stack up to the rest of the game? Does it feel involved, or is it like BF3's jets, where they kind of do their own thing while being mostly ignored by non-jets?

Most of the time it spawns on land (just 1, by the skyscraper, so no boat vs boat yet unless you count all the pesky jetski's) so I've yet to be able to try it out in a live game : / But I've killed several enemy boats quite easily with tanks etc....

Whenever I try to spawn in a boat it spawns me in the water...
Personally, i don't take a stance on whether or not there is a creating entity because i'm humble enough to realize, in my fucking insignificance, the concept escapes my comprehension with a lead of 9001 light years.

Ah, I see. Well, how well does that one boat contribute to playing the objective? It probably can't capture flags, but have you guys experienced a scenario where you thought to yourself: "I have to try and take that boat out or we'll never take "x" flag?"

Basically the only flags it has a direct (and barely direct) effect on is the skyscraper (when destroyed, think the boat only spawns after it's destroyed for that matter) and the first by chinese base... It can't touch the metro and barely the parking garage.. The mall is pretty well covered by solid walls as well.. So on Shanghai it doesn't really do much except block the roads near the water and bridges a bit. But since it's fairly easy to take out it's not that much of a worry....

Paracel storm however is way more fitting for it

Problem with the Shanghai boat is that it's right in the middle of the map, making it an easy target for all air and ground units. However, it packs a major punch. Hell, I'd even go as far to say that it's the most effective vehicle at killing infantry (that aren't on top of buildings). It has very good mobility, but it's also a little tricky to control properly. It's pretty much a glass cannon. Also takes a long ass time to spawn. I think around the same cooldown as attack choppers.

Will it protect against STD's?

I'm a fan of the show, but not a "Brony". I don't obsess over it, but I do watch it and enjoy it.

That's like saying "I suck dick, but I'm not gay."

Okay, that was one of my big concerns. Hopefully we'll have some maps where the boats can be more of a primary force when it comes to the objectives. Seems like right now the tanks and foot soldiers are still king.

I can't see why they wouldn't put boats on maps like parcel storm for the console players since that is such a water based map it makes sense. I only think it didn't make it to the console siege map because well with 12v12 you put to many vehicles on the map and no ones on land actually playing the objective, which I feel like already happens on a lot of BF3 vehicle maps with 1/3 of your team in the air just kinda doin their own thing.
