A closer look at the new Battlefield 4 maps
The latest multiplayer trailer gave us a few good glimpses of the other Battlefield 4 maps and settings. Taking a closer look at the trailer revealed some of those maps in detail. In all, 8 different maps were showcased in the trailer (Battlefield 4 launches with 10 maps). The map settings range from urban, to desert, to jungle, and more.
Check out the new BF4 screenshots below and an analysis of the new maps. Click the images for a larger view.
Operation Locker is the snow covered Battlefield 4 map we saw during the Battlelog trailer a few weeks ago. It’s a linear map with snowy exteriors and also interiors that take place in a large cave / mine. It reminds us a lot of the Damavand Peak map from BF3. It also seems to have a cool “frost” effect added to the HUD.
The “flood / dam map” as seen in the new trailer: it has urban environments which can be flooded with water. Also, it’s set in China (as seen on the building signs).
Another dam map was showcased, but this one did not have any water — just a wall collapsing. This is likely the map we saw in the Commander post last month.
Arecibo-style telescope map features a large telescope similar to the famous Arecibo Observatory. This is likely a much larger telescope that currently under construction in China. Players will be able to move both on the surface of the telescope, and beneath it, which features some lush vegetation.
Other maps showcased include a very large, open map with a lot of vehicles, including jets, tanks, helicopters, and more.
And for good fun, here’s an awesome GIF from the recent trailer. The new explosions sure look good.
Props to J0hn-Stuart-Mill over at Symthic for the breakdown.
