“When you talk, we listen, and when we heard that the Battlefield community wanted a new night map, we set out to make this idea a reality. It’ll be coming in Battlefield 4 Night Operations, hitting the Battlefield in September 2015.”
That’s how the team at EA announced a brand new DLC coming to Battlefield 4. Per the official website, Night Operations features a new map, adjusted gameplay, and more. Per the announcement, the new DLC about more than making a simple 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).”
The DLC map will support all the standards modes, but will challenge you to adapt to the new environment and make the best of your new surroundings.
Battlefield 4: Night Operations comes out in September. You can watch a video of playtest footage for the new DLC in the player below.
