When DICE took the stage at EA PLAY, we revealed what the remainder of 2019 has in store for Battlefield™ V*. TL;DR: it’s a lot. A recap may be in order!
With that, let’s look at the highlights from our rundown of Chapter 4: Defying the Odds – and peek at the first exciting glimpse of Chapter 5.
Al Sundan: Desert Fights on a Vast New Map
We know you’ve been hungry for more maps. Therefore, we were pleased to reveal that a lot of fresh fighting grounds are being cooked up. First stop: The North African desert. Coming in June, the Al Sundan map is based on the vista used in the single player War Story Under No Flag.
Optimized for all-out multiplayer action, the location focuses on large distances, vehicle-based teamplay, and battles across all ranges. Al Sundan is classic Battlefield. We can’t wait to let you play it.
Marita: Infantry-Focused Map Coming in July
Following the release of the Mercury map, the Battle of Greece will continue with Marita. Here, you’ll deploy on a sloping mountain ridge and within the tight streets of a rural town, where Allied forces are making a last stand to halt the Axis army.
Marita is an infantry-focused map, where all four soldier classes will be able to shine. Tanks and aircraft will stand aside for intense infantry gunfights and sneaky flanks in the cobbled streets. We look forward to letting you tackle this vertical environment as the Battle of Greece rages on.
Operation Underground: Fast Action Below Street Level
Fans of the classic Operation Métro map are in for a treat as we lifted the veil on another upcoming map: Operation Underground. Inspired by the fan-favorite Battlefield™ 3 map, it will deliver tight, infantry-focused action with more flexibility and new, fun ways to get around. The areas will be diverse, and different playstyles will be supported, as you fight through urban streets, courtyards, the plaza area, service tunnels, train platforms, and more. This one’s coming in October.
Two New Close-Quarter Maps
Destroy an explosives production factory in Lofoten Islands. Unseat the Axis occupation in Provence. With Chapter 4: Defying the Odds, two new and intense close-quarter maps are coming to Battlefield V. By popular demand, we’re bringing more maps to players craving tighter types of multiplayer. Specially tailored for intimate infantry combat, the new battlefields will challenge your squad in unique ways. Teamwork, skill, and adaptation are your keys to victory.
Ongoing Improvements to Firestorm
If you’re a battle royale fan, our dedication to keep fanning the flames of Halvøy was more good news. Regular Firestorm updates will be coming, across both maps and systems. The first update will unveil new weapons, custom skins, matchmaking tweaks, and a brand-new landmark called The Dome. This drops mid-June. With Chapter 4, squad respawn and loot system improvements are coming, too.
Battlefield V Added to The Vault
Another pleasant announcement: starting June 8, you can play Battlefield V in the EA Access and Origin Access Vault. Battlefield V will also be available through EA Access on PlayStation® 4 when it launches next month.
Deploy in the Pacific in Chapter 5
Last, but far from least, was an exciting reveal: Battlefield V will reach the Pacific this fall with Chapter 5!
The Pacific Theater has been part of the Battlefield DNA ever since the game-changing debut of Battlefield™ 1942. Now, we’re crafting the ultimate reimagining of the conflict. As the U.S. and Japan enter the fight, expect additional maps, including a modern take on an absolute Battlefield classic: Iwo Jima. You’ll be able to use amphibious units to pummel the war-ridden shores and an expanded arsenal to rouse your squad to victory.
We have a lot more to share about the Pacific theater, Chapter 5, and Chapter 4: Defying the Odds. Battlefield V keeps on evolving. We look forward to continuing the journey with you.
