BATTLEFIELD 5 DEVS ASSURE FANS THAT THEY’RE STILL MAKING MASSIVE MAPS
Team reveal Hamada map, which is 1.5km end-to-end.
Some of the players in Battlefield 5’s open beta, which ended this week, were worried that the maps were too small, and didn’t live up to the mammoth arenas in previous games (this is a good example of the complaints). The DICE concerns, assuring fans they’re still making big maps—including one that’s more than 1.5km end-to-end.
The big map in question is Hamada, and lead multiplayer designer Valerian Noghin shared an image to show its scale, noting that it’s still a work in progress.
The development team also shared a list of changes they’re planning to make based on feedback from the open beta. Distance haze and lighting changes will make enemies more visible, and automatic weapons are being “adjusted” to make “time to kill as fair and fun as possible”.
Battlefield 5 is due out on November 20.
