First screenshots of new Battlefield 4 map surface
UPDATE: we’ve added a video below:
DICE has just released the brand new Battlefield 4 map to the Community Test Environment. As the screenshots reveal, the map doesn’t feature all the textures yet, and is mainly designed for feedback on its size and layout. As the screenshots reveal, it’s a medium-sized map with 5 flags.
The screenshots reveal the layout of the map, its key features, and flag positions as well. As DICE posted in the CTE subreddit, this is a “scale test” of the map:
“A scale test is the very first version of the map where we normally have the first playtest internally as a game team to test the Conquest map size, distances, and rough flag layout.”
DICE’s David Sirland said that during scale tests, they like to keep the map sparse and basic in terms of details, and only focus on layout, scale, flag positions, etc.
Sirland points out what kind of feedback they are looking for from players:
“Does some part of the map feel off, too large or too small? Is there a problem area you can already pinpoint that we should address?”
He points out that they are not looking for feedback on specific objects such as terrain, structures, lighting etc. The map is now available to all CTE players. No word on when the next iteration will be released.
You can check out screenshots of the map below. Thanks to Rob for sending these in!
