It’s the first I’ve heard of using Easter Eggs as shark bait, but continuing a recent trend of including a slew of secrets with DLC releases, EA’s Battlefield 4 expansion, Naval Strike, had rumours swimming about that it was to include a giant shark in one of its maps.
Well it’s confirmed! The prehistoric giant shark or ‘megalodon‘ (read freakishly enormous toothy aquatic predator) does in fact make an appearance and, as you can see in the YouTube clip below, it’s been found on theNansha Strike map. Sadly non-premium players will have to wait until April 15th to hunt her down for themselves.
I think we’re going to need a bigger boat…
Clearly sticking to the facts, the shark, which is absolutely gigantic, comes back into the ocean accompanied by a wash of explosions, though judging by its size I’m surprised by the absence of tsunami, she’s a big one.
Personally I’ll always have time for Easter Eggs in games. The inherently viral nature of their word of mouth spread is a great source of amusement and can bring the often disparate online gaming community together.
