If you’re still playing Battlefield 4, then you’re in for some good news. DICE LA has revealed the map it’s been creating with the community.
Called “Night Operations,” the map will — as the name suggests — be set during nighttime and will be out this September for all Battlefield players. The map will be based on vanilla BF4’s Zavod map, and will support the following game modes: Conquest, Rush, Team Deathmatch, Obliteration, Domination and Gun Master. Also of note, Gun Master on the map will be getting a unique twist with a second, even darker layout, and a special Weapons Presets specifically suited for night.
Here’s the rest of the details players can expect from the new Battlefield 4 Night Operations map:
We quickly realized there was more to it than just making a pretty map. It would need to feature a new sound landscape, destructible lights, and a different sort of gameplay. This lead to us focusing on the creation of Zavod: Graveyard Shift, based on Zavod 311, a new map that brings with it several improvements and tweaks to allow for more stealthy and tactical gameplay.
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).
Aside from the map, there are new improvements and features set to roll out simultaneously as well, which will include weapon tweaks, netcode improvements and more.
