Battlefield 4 maps vary from tight infantry maps to large, open maps with a lot of vehicles. Battlefield 4 maps will come in all shapes and sizes, just like those of its predecessor. BF3 shipped with 9 maps, and it’s expected that the number of maps in Battlefield 4 will be in that ballpark.
Developer DICE has previously done a great job at offering multiplayer maps for different game types and multiplayer game modes. The game had maps catering to players who prefer wide, open maps, and those who prefer more closed-down, infantry-based maps. Battlefield 4 maps follow that design philosophy.
The previous game in the series had 9 maps, all of which supported all game modes. For BF4, the game ships with 10 maps, and all ten maps will support all 7 Battlefield 4 multiplayer game modes, including Conquest, Rush, and Deathmatch. The map layout will change depending on what game mode is played. Usually, Conquest offers the largest size, while Domination and Deathmatch has the smallest versions.
Battlefield 4 maps breakdown
Battlefield 4 maps range from close quarter, urban settings, to large, open maps suitable for tanks, jets, and other vehicles. For the first time, there are maps that are based around naval combat as well, such as Paracel Storm. Other multiplayer maps will be made available after launch via DLC (downloadable content) and expansion packs.
