Battlefield 3 Multiplayer Map Reveal Part Two

By
Posted on October 14, 2011 AT 01:07pm

THE BUZZ: EA and Dice have released the second part of their multiplayer map reveal feature detailing the final five maps that will appear in the game.

Grand Bazaar

WORKING TITLE> BAZAAR
DICE INTERNAL DESIGNATION> MP001
SUPPORTED GAME MODES> ALL
BRIEF> TIGHT URBAN COMBAT

Grand Bazaar is a tight and enclosed urban map with little room for maneuver, the map is mirrored so both paths are the same no matter which way you attack from allowing for quick familiarity in combat. It is suited to close quarters combat and shotguns are the preferred weapon of choice.

Caspian Border

WORKING TITLE> FOREST
DICE INTERNAL DESIGNATION> MP007
SUPPORTED GAME MODES> ALL
BRIEF> VEHICLE WARFARE IN LARGE VALLEY

Caspian border is a more typical Battlefield map with large open spaces for vehicular warfare. There are plenty of high vantage points for snipers balanced out by rolling hills for defense. The distances in this map are typically too large to traverse by foot so vehicles are a must.

Seine Crossing

WORKING TITLE> PARIS
DICE INTERNAL DESIGNATION> MP011
SUPPORTED GAME MODES> ALL
BRIEF> VEHICLE/INFANTRY COMBAT IN DOWNTOWN PARIS

This map is split into two by the river Seine and features several large roads for vehicles to patrol while infantry can sneak through the tight back alleyways and buildings. The buildings in the map are two or three floors high allowing for players to gain a tactical advantage over the battlefield.

Noshahr Canals

WORKING TITLE> CANALS
DICE INTERNAL DESIGNATION> MP017
SUPPORTED GAME MODES> ALL
BRIEF> MIXED COMBAT IN INDUSTRIAL SETTING

This map is set in an industrial harbor and features a mixture of land, vehicle and boat gameplay. Attackers on this map start out on a large ship and must use boats and helicopters to reach the shore.

Kharg Island

WORKING TITLE> KHARG
DICE INTERNAL DESIGNATION> MP018
SUPPORTED GAME MODES> ALL
BRIEF> AMPHIBIOUS ASSAULT

This is the second of two maps which feature boat gameplay, however this map is more heavily focused on vehicles with larger distances between objectives. The first base is a bottle necked strong hold but once that is broken down the map opens into a much wider area.

The complete map list is below:

  • Caspian Border / Level Designer: Diego Jimenez
  • Damavand Peak / Level Designer: Niklas Åstrand
  • Grand Bazaar / Level Designer: Niklas Åstrand
  • Kharg Island / Level Designer: Inge Jøran Holberg
  • Noshahar Canals / Level Designer: Niklas Åstrand
  • Operation Firestorm / Level Designer: Inge Jøran Holberg
  • Operation Métro / Level Designer: Inge Jøran Holberg
