Battlefield 4 Night Maps
August 6, 2015 - PlayStation, Video Game, Xbox,
EA has released more information and a short sneak peak at the upcoming Battlefield 4 Night Operations DLC. Battlefield 4 Night maps have been teased since spring but it looks like they will arrive in September. The official battlelog explains making a night map is more than you might think. (The map) “would need to feature a new sound landscape, destructible lights, and a different sort of gameplay.” It also appears you might be lost without an IRNV or other night vision assistance. It looks dark out there.
The only map in the preview is Zavod: Graveyard Shift, and it looks to be a good size for this type of combat. Zavod will have the standard game modes: Conquest, Rush, Team Deathmatch, Obliteration, Domination and Gun Master. Yeah Gun Master at night. It will have an “even darker layout” and special new Weapons Presets that will be specifically configured for the mode.
We touched things like passive/active spotting to make it easier to flank your opponent. We’ve improved the sound system so you can pinpoint where those footsteps come from. Additionally, we’ve also given the gadgets and tools of the night an improvement pass to make them shine in the dark (but less so during the day).
The DLC will also have minor improvements and gun tweaks. Including a new public server team balancer, and additional netcode improvements. Have to say I’m pretty excited about this.
