EA has revealed that Battlefield 4 will be getting DLC later this year. The best part? It’s free to download; no strings attached.
Called the “Legacy Operations”, the free DLC will add the 2015 version of Dragon Valley, a popular map from Battlefield 2, as voted on by the fans (a trailer for which you can check out below). “Battlefield 2 featured a poor draw distance (how far you can see in the game world) by today’s standards, and the original map was built around those limitations,” developer DICE explained. “We tackled this in several ways: first we increased the terrain verticality to closer mimic a real life Chinese river valley – and to give us more terrain occlusion for long distances, especially on the central island. We also added a dynamic cloud layer, which not only adds a welcomed air-to-ground separation in terms of gameplay, but also helps shroud far distances at ground level. This has the added bonus effect of allowing you to have intense aerial firefights above the cloud level, which looks really, really cool in Battlefield 4.”
Unfortunately, due to the size of the map, it will only be available this winter as part of the Holiday Update for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions of the game; however, DICE did promise that last gen owners will still be supported.
