Operation Metro map hinted for Battlefield 4 in sound files

According to sound files from the game, Operation Metro will return in BF4

Battlefield 4 metro
According to the recently released Battlefield 4 sound files — someone apparently got their hands on several gigabytes of audio files from the game — there are hints at Operation Metro as a Battlefield 4 map. You read that right, Op Metro might be back.

The Battlefield 4 sound file list specifically mentions “Paris_Subway_Station” and “Paris_Roomtone” numerous times. We’ve previously heard rumorings of Operation Metro being remade for Battlefield 4, and this is the first piece of solid evidence we got.

Love it or hate it, Operation Metro is probably the most played map in BF3, and has some of the most intense combat the series has ever seen. But it’s also a grenade spamming, hectic nightmare that a lot of players avoid like the plague. Should Operation Metro find its way to Battlefield 4 — and it looks like it will — we hope DICE has done some serious reconstruction.

DICE will reveal a new multiplayer map and game mode this week at GamesCom — the map has already leaked online.

    Well I bet it will be interesting to see in BF3 and gameplay-wise, but hopefully they will find a way to get rid of some of the hallways and a few small routes in some ways to reduce clustering and grenade spamming, but overall though, I think for the most part, I would like it in BF4. Feel free to disagree with me, I couldn’t care less.

    NO! Bring back Arica Harbor! It’s bigger and more open then Metro! And it’s better than metro! Metro is over rated!

      Arica Harbor is from BC2, a game considered as a sub-series, or spin-off series. Besides, if they are to bring back old maps (which they are, with the Second Assault DLC), they will be from the main series. Right now it is only BF3 vanilla maps being brought back, with Operation Metro as one of them. The description of Second Assault even states that it is the four most popular maps.

        I don’t care if it’s a sub series. It’s a good map and deserves to be brought back more than metro. It offered more action and more diverse gameplay than Operation 24-7 grenade spam. And it had some of the best destruction of any map in a Battlefield game. Most buildings could be brought down. Not sections of walls like on Metro.

      If they decide to add BC2 maps, I hope they also add Valparaiso and Port Valdez

    Operation metro is one of the maps that probes how much clusterfuck BF3 has to the COD fans saying that battlefield is slow paced, Imagine 12vs12 is a disaster what’s going to be with 32vs32, Anyways i think is great idea.

    I like metro, sure it may not be the most open map, and it may be the most linear but I loved going with my squad, every-moment expecting to come across enemies, and there were plenty of close quarter situaltions, sure this is better suited to COD but I loved it nonetheless 🙂

    What if they maed the area above ground playable as well? So half of te combat would be in the subway and te other half would be in the city above. Maybe this way would help reduce clusters and grenade spamfests. Also mayb when an explosion goes off above ground, rocks will fall from the shaking celing below ground. Not really anything affecting gameplay but adding to seamless reality.

      How about they open up the area surrounding Metro and so if you lets say russian and the three entrances are blocked you could go around, blow out a wall and flank the US

    I like Metro because the action in this map is always insane. But if they will be remaking this map, DICE might have to make the subway system a little bigger in order to give players more breathing room.

    If it is in there i hope that they make some mega changes, like an area above the underground station, that would be enough to stop the mega ‘nade fest i reckon.

    Not sure how the Tomahawk Commander-launched missile is going to work in the subway…

    Maybe more of the metro and/or city will be destructible thanks to Levolution. That’d be interesting, and maybe it’d help thin out some of the map’s typical camping spots.

    “But it’s also a grenade spamming, hectic nightmare that a lot of players avoid like the plague. Should Operation Metro find its way to Battlefield 4 — and it looks like it will — we hope DICE has done some serious reconstruction. ”

    One can only hope for it, but yes this sums up the way I feel about this.

    If you don’t like Operation Metro then don’t play it. It’s one map. It’s not like they force you to play it.

    I for one, absolutely love Metro. It’s by far the most intense map ever in the series. It’s frustrating and downright anger-inducing when you get dominated by an unbalanced team (which happens all the time as high ranking colonels swap teams to wherever the highest ranking colonels are), however that doesn’t take anything away from its enjoyment. It’s so well designed, in terms of sneaky flanking, particularly around B, and the Russian bit with the two buildings. The US corridor situation on the other hand is bloody and far too linear. They need a way to allow locked in spawn teams to smash their way out through grenade launchers into a wall or something, to make another route.

    Does not mean it will be a Metro, it can simply mean they recycle some of the sounds as it’s pointless to do all sounds from scratch, very common in todays game.
