After adding a new map in July, developer DICE is back again with one more addition for Battlefield V. The first-person shooter will receive another brand-new map later this week, and it should be familiar to Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 players.
Operation Underground is the latest map coming to Battlefield V, dropping on October 3 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Battlefield V’s official Twitter account shared a video of the new map, which will see you duking it out against other players in a tight, underground subway tunnel before emerging above ground in a war-torn German city. Operation Underground can be played in Conquest, Breakthrough, Squad Conquest, and Team Deathmatch. Further, Rush will be a supported game mode for a limited time.
Battlefield 3 and 4 featured a map called Operation Métro, and Operation Underground is said to be a spiritual successor to it. Métro’s original designer led the creation of Operation Underground and will allegedly keep Métro’s intense close-quarters combat while removing bottlenecks and adding new gameplay mechanics. You can check out some screens of Operation Underground below.
Battlefield V’s competitive 5v5 mode has been cancelled. Senior producer Ryan McArthur provided insight on the decision, saying that “the added focus on improving the quality of the experience and adding more of the content you want” resulted in DICE chopping the mode. Battlefield V is currently on sale at the PlayStation Store, alongside a host of other titles like Bloodborne and Red Dead Redemption 2.
