A few days ago DICE released Mercury, a new map for Battlefield V. Now, the devs have revealed further plans for the development of the game and they promise to be ambitious.
On June 27, Chapter IV: Defying the Odds will be published. Its trailer shows four new maps in action. Provence will be set in occupied France and will focus on close quarters combat. Lofoten Islands will take us to Norway, and the central point of the level will be an explosive device factory, which the attacking side will have to destroy.
For fans of large scale skirmishes there is a map of Al Sundan and Greek Marita, set in North Africa. Both levels are designed for large battle with 64 players.
The most interesting, however, is the end of the trailer, which shows a clash with Japanese soldiers. This is a clear indication that further development plans for the game include the far east front. We hope that during the E3 fair we will learn more about this subject.
Battlefield V was released in November last year. The production was released on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with 7.3 million copies sold by February. This result, although high, disappointed the publisher, as his forecasts were higher.
In March an update with the battle royale mode called Firestorm was released. The launch was exactly what the game needed. In the first week the number of players increased by 60%. The debut of the mode became the most popular online event in the history of the whole franchise.
