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!

      Why waste your time going on a site revolving around Battlefield if you’re just going to hate? Or do neckbeards like you only have a limited supply of My Little Pony hentai to wank to so you spend the rest of your time insulting things?

          I think your problem is that you paid $120 for a single game, not the fact that it’s “a broken arse game”

          Which it isn’t, really.

    It looks similar to the China Rising DLC map, Dragon Pass.

      I was just thinking the same thing. Still eager to go play around and get a feel for it. This is just a rough cut. Plenty more detail to come, which will make it totally different in the end.

    The map looks cool , but its the same thing over again . why don’t they go for a map based in Egypt , with pyramids temples and underground tunnels and chambers , now that would be sooooo cool .

    why not refresh the Grand Bazaar, Norshal Canals, Ziba Tower?
    These maps are the best.

    Looks utterly dumb and boring. Hire me as a map maker. Oh that’s right I didn’t spend over 80k for a University education.

      Well if you judge an scene that is in alpha and limited for testing, an 80k education would not do a damn thing for you. Go troll somewhere else.

    Utter trash.
    Bring back Death Valley in daytime.
    Grand Bazaar at night.
    Damavand Peak in the snow with goatpaths over the tunnel to either side.
    Oasis in sand storm.
    Harvest Day in the fog.
    Arica Harbor with earthquake and tsunami.
    Seinne Crossing right after nuclear blast.
    Set Sabian Pipeline ablaze.
    Kiasar Railroad too, forest fire will keep snipers moving along nicely.

    Any of those rehashes better than what they are teasing now.
